I think the rotation thing is pretty nifty though. That thing is incredibly expensive. It costs more than my whole computer did.

Having used an excellent Samsung 19" 191T for the last 6 months, i'd kill to get my hands on a 21" 1600x1200 res. 1280 x 1024 is too small @ 19"

Just a tiny remark, it's NOT the biggest LCD monitor available from Samsung. The 24" Samsung 240T has been on the market longer than the 213T (now joined by two newer 24" monitors, 241MP and 243T). But it's definitely nice and more affordable...

BTW, the new Samsung 243T I mentioned is worth checking out for those who got the cash needed. It's of almost identical design, but larger (24"), and widescreen format (1920*1200).

yes I agree the 19" 1280x1024 is too "large"; the 17" is perfect I think. The 19" should be 1600x1200 and the 21" should be 2048x1536 (or whatever). Are people wanting larger pixels because they are going blind? My laptop is 15" @ 1600x1200 and I have no complaints. When the pixels are too large you loose the immersion I think. Get some glasses and save some money....

When you increase the resolution on a montior, the image gets smaller, not larger. Lowering the resoultion will make it larger.

I guess the real way to describe the 213T is the largest Samsung LCD with rotating capabilities ... the 240T can't rotate, but it's freaking huge!

Anyway the 1600x1200 resolution sounds like it doesn't cut it on such a large screen but as you know with LCD's they tend to show a lot even with such a low resolution... still I think 1900x1280 or whatever it is would be an appropriate res here.

Btw something like 90% of the Neoseeker frontpage shows up on the 213T on vertical mode... that's a heck of a lot of screen real estate

Not for long though, the Samsung 243T can pivot as well, and it will appear in stores any time...

Hey, Master of VG, yes you're right, it's d*@" expensive. But don't compare the screen you will face for the next 5 years with a PC you replace every 2nd year
So I think it's pretty worth it, if you can afford it, oc.

True. You should have bought the 18" instead. same resolution but smaller. Just think, which of the two have the sharper screen?

I know, my father has two....TWO of them set up together. Making a total of 48.6 viewable inches of Samsung LCD goodness.
