SAMSUNG Introduces Ultra-Fast, High-End LCD Monitor You Can Carry Anywhere

Las Vegas -- Samsung, the world's leading manufacturer of TFT computer monitors and professional displays, showcases its technology leadership with the introduction of a new state-of-the-art LCD monitor targeted to business and home users. The stylish 19-inch SyncMaster 960BF employs Samsung's award-winning design and performance, and offers an industry-leading four-millisecond response time, making this monitor the ultimate display solution for multimedia-driven applications as well as anyone who uses motion video or streaming video. Sporting a convenient carrying handle, the 960BF is the ideal display for the busy executive on the go. The SyncMaster 960BF will be on exhibit during CES 2006 at the Samsung booth, #11033 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 5th - 8th. The SyncMaster 960BF is currently shipping with an Estimated Street Price of $649.

"Samsung continues to transform the display arena with cutting-edge innovations for business and home users alike," states David Nichols, Director of Display Marketing for Samsung's Information Technology Division (ITD). "The new SyncMaster 960BF, with its blazing-fast four-millisecond response time, sleek and slim design and handy carrying handle, showcases once again how Samsung is staying ahead of the curve offering best-of-breed display solutions with advanced feature sets."

Designed for PC and online gamers, corporate and business markets, and perfect for graphic intensive users, the SyncMaster 960BF is the pinnacle of innovative design and premium technology. The monitor utilizes several of Samsung's proprietary technologies for enhanced viewing pleasure including MagicSpeed , MagicStand™, MagicTune , MagicZone , MagicColor and MagicBright II .

Employing MagicSpeed technology, the monitors sport a four-millisecond gray-to-gray response time -- one of the fastest in the industry today. The ultra-fast response time allows for flawless picture performance when viewing multimedia-driven applications or engaging in computer gaming. The faster response time ensures better performance of motion video and produces smoother edges, clearer images and a more natural image response. Response time is a critical factor that users should consider when purchasing an LCD monitor. MagicSpeed reduces the ghosting and lack of focus that may appear on displays with a slower response time. MagicSpeed optimizes the image quality and response time for an ideal viewing experience.

The SyncMaster 960BF utilizes Samsung's MagicStand, an innovative and ergonomic dual-hinge adjustable stand that offers pivot ability, height adjustment and tilt. The sleek and savvy monitor is also ultra portable. The display can be folded down 90 degrees, collapsing the display completely flat producing a convenient handle for the business professionals in need of a stylish display for their presentation.

To maximize image performance and user functionality, the displays feature MagicTune technology. MagicTune enables users to have full control over all display features with extensive color adjustment capability for an individual's personal viewing criteria. This produces the best onscreen performance for the optimal personalized viewing experience and allows users to save their personalized display profile.

The SyncMaster 960BF incorporates MagicZone technology allowing users to select any area of the screen and change its characteristics. By paralleling the On Screen Display features, MagicZone technology enables users to customize the contrast, brightness, color and sharpness within the selected MagicZone window to their desired viewing preference.

MagicColor and MagicBright II technologies are also featured in this elegant display. With MagicColor the monitor automatically selects the areas of the screen that may need color correction and selectively enhances that area. For example, MagicColor allows users to remove the unwanted glare of an image and bring back the natural color appearances automatically. MagicBright II allows the user to select the proper optimized setting of brightness, contrast and gamma correction for the specific media type that is displayed. Users can select from one of the following five modes: Game, Movie, Sports, Internet or Text. With just one push of a button, users can improve image quality for the specific media type being displayed.

Utilizing both analog and digital inputs, the display delivers crisp, clean text and bright vivid colors. With its 700:1 contrast ratio, 300cd/m2 brightness and 1280 x 1024 resolution, the 960BF make even the most mundane task easy on the eye. And with its high-gloss white finish, it's a pleasure to look at even when it's off.

Samsung backs all of its monitors with a three-year, parts and labor warranty, including the backlight as well as toll-free technical support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, Samsung offers a three-year Advanced Replacement Program, three-year Repair and Return or Exchange and three-year Shuttle Exchange for hassle-free repairs.
