Despite having a load of inputs and being described as HDTV ready - it doesnt seem to have a HDMI/HDCP connector :thumbsdow


I ordered one because i think it is the same panel (both Samsung PVA 24" and all the specs points at it being identical) as the Dell 2405fpw display.
I should be getting it in next week or week after that.
Havn´t read anything about it can´t find any good review on it. I truly wish its the same as the dell because it has got realy good reviews.

I dont know if there are card reader or not on this but it probably ain´t so I´m going to miss that.

Sorry for my bad english i am from Sweden.
