Thin is In!

Let's take a stroll down the lanes of history, shall we? In the year 1981 (in the early days of the monitor market), Samsung launched its monitor division. Since then, Samsung has amassed 9,948 patents worldwide, with over 1,500 in the United States alone by 1999. It is ranked 14th on the Fortune 100 list and a numero uno in terms of worldwide sales for three consecutive years. It has already reached the enviable milestone of having sold 100 million monitors – something not every competitor can claim.

Samsung has always catered to the increasingly diversified taste of consumers. For example, hybrid LCD panels designed exclusively for computing and television watching (for example, the Samsung 171MP). Now, Samsung has once again raised the bar by introducing a series of thin-bezel (0.5-inch thick) monitors – the thinnest in the consumer market so far.

Buy a couple of these babies, stack them up, line them side by side and experience the visual splendor of having one single image blown up with crystal clarity or multiple images output to several high-end, high quality Samsung 171N-Silver monitors.

Now that we let the cat out of the bag, you can purview the specifications below and then proceed to discover some of the other impressive qualities that make up the Samsung 171N-Silver (17" LCD) monitor.
