The engineering sample exhibited at the 2011 CES show running Android 2.2, but the final version is expected to Android 3.0 Honeycomb rotate. On top of OS, the device runs a customized UI Acer 4.5 user interface.

The tablet is based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform, support for 1080p video playback, while the display shows “10 point multitouch input. Acer’s Iconia TAB has a reversing camera, HDMI output, USB port like on Samsung 2233SW 21.5-Inch Monitor, Micro USB port, Micro SD card and SIM card slots, and a dock connector. 4G LTE connection was not enabled on the display unit. There is no information on pricing and availability.

Sony is reportedly looking to get out of the netbook game, instead focused on better performance, higher margin notebooks. But that does not mean the company will focus only on laptops with high price tags almost laughable. Last week Sony unveiled the YB series laptop with an AMD Fusion chip and a starting price of about $ 550.

I got a chance to spend a few minutes with the Sony YB laptop at CES, and it’s a decent looking machine. The laptop has a 1.6 GHz AMD processor with E-350 Radeon HD 6310 graphics, supports up to 4GB of storage and a 500GB hard drive and comes standard with WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 like on Samsung 2233SW 21.5-Inch Monitor, VGA and HDMI output , and 3 USB ports. The computer weighs 3.2 pounds and has a 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display.

The laptop has a chiclet-style keyboard and two nice large buttons below the touchpad. It will be in different color combinations, including three-tone models with colorful covers, silver / gray bodies and black soils. It seems that there is a solid black or silver and black option for those with more conservative tastes. The Sony YB series should be available next month. Find a few pictures after the break. I snagged a few more photos when I visited the AMD stand at a pre-CES event earlier in the week (for the Sony YB series was officially announced).

At $200, it’s difficult to care too much about the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW’s shortcomings. Sure, it has low screen brightness, no HDMI connection, a clumsy onscreen display, and no ergonomic features aside from tilt. However, most people will be willing to looking past these shortcomings, thanks to the display’s sub-$250 price–especially if they’re only looking for a general-purpose monitor. Throw in its good movie and games performance and a useful and robust OSD, and you have a worthwhile investment. Compared with other displays, such as Samsung XL2370 and Dell’s S2409W and SP2309W, the 2233SW’s overall performance and lack of features can’t compete against more feature-rich displays. It relies on its low price as its trump card and is currently at least $50 cheaper than the others are.

Design and features

The 21.5-inch Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW has a design that closely resembles the Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ. The Samsung display is devoid of useful ergonomic options such as screen rotation and height adjustment, offering only a 25-degree backward tilt. When placed on a desktop, the Samsung leaves 3.75 inches between the bottom of its screen and the desk. On the sides and top, the Samsung’s glossy bezel measures 0.75 inch and 0.8 inch, respectively. The Samsung’s oval-shaped footstand measures a bit larger than 10 inches wide and 8.5 inches deep. When knocked from the sides, the Samsung wobbled minimally, but it did slide a few inches across the desk with each knock. On the bottom-middle of the Samsung’s bezel is a light gray, painted on Samsung logo.

The Samsung panel measures approximately 1 inch deep and extends another 1.5 inches behind the ventilation, lighting, and connectivity options include. These measurements are counted, the display panel is approximately 2.5 inches deep. The full width of the panel is 20.3 inches – which is average for a 22-inch model. Running across the bottom of the ring from Samsung is a clear glass “lip” about an inch long. If the monitor is turned on, a blue LED radiates from the bottom of the ring and reflects off the lip, creating an interesting lighting effect. In this model, Samsung ditches the usual glossy screen viewed on monitors these days, instead opting for a matte finish.

The video connection options are limited to VGA and DVI, and Samsung includes cables for each. However, there is an HDMI connection not included – which is surprising because most monitors have an aspect ratio of 16:9 this connection. All ports are connectors on the back and on the right side of the monitor. Samsung also flush the ports in a way that makes them a bit difficult to access.

Display on the screen of the Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ the buttons on the lower right of the monitor on the outside of the panel. It contains five buttons stacked on top of each other. The buttons below the menu, Up, Down, Enter and back, with the power button below. The Up and Down buttons also double as shortcuts to the brightness and contrast, respectively. Each button is almost a half inch in diameter with a spherical shape. Pressing the button makes a satisfying clicking sound and every depressing enough to make it clear when it is pushed. The buttons have enough space between them so that when calibrating the display in low light, you can easily tell the buttons apart.

Pressing the Menu button brings the OSD menu. Here are the options for brightness and contrast in addition to the OSD menu options for determining the length of the menu stays on the screen when idle (up to 200 seconds). The presets include text, Internet, Game, Sport, Movie and Dynamic Contrast. Choosing each preset include adjust screen brightness, but the film seems presets for color temperature change to more of a red push than the other presets that make it bluer. However, this was not detrimental to the image.

16:9 ratio, the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW supports a “Full HD” 1.080 x 1.920-pixel native resolution. This continues the trend of more and closer monitoring of suppliers move towards 16:9 4:10 p.m. by high-definition content – especially 1080p movies – can a 1.920 x 1.080-pixel display in full screen mode fit without stretching the image.


We tested the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW using its DVI connection. The display posted a composite score of 96 on DisplayMate-based performance tests, the same score as the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 and higher than the Dell SP2309W’s 90 score. In our dark screen test, the 2233SW showed only a small amount of backlight bleed through, less than the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370.

The 2233SW achieved a brightness score of 231 candelas per square meter–much lower than the XL2370′s 344 cd/m2, and the Dell SP2309W’s 297 cd/m2. The difference between the monitors is readily apparent, as the 2233SW’s screen looks noticeably darker in comparison. When we set the brightness of the 2233SW and XL2370 to 100 and 75 respectively, we found that when looking at the same image, the XL’s whites were noticeably brighter without compromising the dark detail and deep blacks of the image. The 2233SW displayed whites that were noticeably darker than the XL2370′s and took on a bluish tint.

We used the 2233SW’s Movie preset to check out “Kill Bill: Vol. 1″ on DVD and some 1080p movie files from Microsoft’s WMV HD Showcase. Other than the red push in the film advance, the 2233SW display deep blacks and decent color when playing movies.

We looked at World of Warcraft and Unreal Tournament 3 on the monitor and saw no evidence of input lag, streaking or ghosting during fast movements. We both played tested in Game of the screen, preset and while we were able to play the game without problems, the overall presentation was darker than what we prefer and places in the game that had jumped into overly bright are not looking so bright as they did on the Samsung XL2370. The Samsung colors in games just not the same pop as the XL2370, thanks to the relatively low brightness.

The optimum viewing angle for a monitor is usually right on the front, about one quarter of the distance from the screen from top to bottom. At this angle, you’re viewing the colors and gamma correction as they were intended. Most monitors are not designed to be viewed on a different angle. Depending on the type of panel, image quality varies nonoptimal angles. Most monitors use TN panels that get overly bright or too dark in parts of the screen when viewed from nonoptimal angles. The Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW uses a TN panel, and when it is viewed from the sides or bottom, we experience the screen to about five inches darker off of the center and we noticed that the left, right and above the display dark colors at the same rate as the SyncMaster XL2370. Of course, viewed from the optimum angle, we had no problems.

The MSI X370 is one of the three pounds “thin and light” laptop which recently launched AMD “Fusion” processor uses the “Brazos” family. This particular AMD Fusion processor is probably the 18-watt “Zacate” that is used by most manufacturers at CES. It packs a lot of punch per watt “, especially when it comes to graphics and multimedia applications like on ASUS N53JF-XE1. In absolute terms, it’s not a speed demon, but compared to other netbooks in the same price, the performance gains are noticeable.
