samsung usb monitor 18 inch

USB displays are handy little things, just like every other USB device out there; the downside is that they’re often small, about 7-inches or so. Samsung looks like it’s trying to tackle that issue, as the Korean display giant has come up with a new 18.5-inch LCD display that is powered by a forked USB 2.0 cable that manages to keep power consumption down to 6.3W. The display itself offers a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 250cd/m2 brightness and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The downside is that this display uses an edge-lit type backlight that uses LEDs as its light source, which translates to a lifetime of 30,000 hours, much less than the 50,000 hours that existing LCD monitors’ LEDs boast. Still, the convenience of USB displays is certainly there.
