Samsung has introduced two new
computer displays, the 19-inch SyncMaster 915N and the 24-inch SyncMaster 242MP, both of which are shipping next month for US$579 and $4,999, respectively. The latter replaces the 241MP model.

The SyncMaster 915N features MagicSpeed technology, which offers an 8ms (millisecond) response time, as well as a 700:1 contrast ratio and a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024. Integrated MagicTune software allows you to set and save personalized display profiles while the 915N’s MagicBright technology enables you to alter its brightness by pushing a button.
The SyncMaster 242MP is an HDTV-ready multi-function display that features a built-in TV tuner and composite video, S-video and component video connectivity. MagicSpeed technology enables a 16ms response time while MagicColor II produces more lifelike colors and MagicTuner allows you to hook the monitor to a cable or satellite TV connection as well as tune in FM radio stations. Virtual Dolby 5-watt attachable speakers are included with the 242MP. Its contrast ratio is 1000:1 and it offers 1920 x 1200 native resolution.
