Samsung P2350 Detailed Features

The base stand on the Samsung P2350 is fairly standard. It offers no other capabilities other than holding the screen up. This means if you find the screen a little too high or a little too low, you're stuck with it. The viewing angle of the screen is fairly wide. You will notice very little color distortion within 90o. After that you colors become slightly yellow. For the most part the plain stand will work.

In the back we have a dual-link DVI input as well as a classic analog RGB. The lack of an HDMI input is understandable as HDMI carries digital audio, but this monitor has no audio output. Those interested in hooking up a PS3 will find themselves dishing $20 for an adapter and have no sound. So while certainly HD capable, this monitor's primary usage is confined to your PC.

The power is located on the other side of video inputs. The advertised power usage of the Samsung P2350 is 1W idle and 43W under use. While compliant with Energy Star's standards, this isn't the most energy efficient monitor out there. Dell offers many similar HD monitor, which draws a mere 20W-30W. That's saves yourself $10 - $15 a year. But you would be missing out on a nice touch panel and would be forking over your savings to Dell's less aggressively priced units. Note that the Samsung P2370 offers the same specs but only 30W max power usage. However it is $70 more expensive.

The mounting points in the back are compatible with Vesa 75mm wall-mounts. For $30 you can get your monitor to hang off the wall and gain adjustability that the basic stand lacks.
