Samsung, the world’s leading manufacturer of computer monitors, continues to
improve upon its groundbreaking LCD monitor technology with the introduction of
the sleek new SyncMaster™ 915n display. The SyncMaster 915n offers an
industry-leading 8ms response time, one of the fastest in the industry today,
making the monitor ideal for computer gaming and multimedia-driven applications
as well as anyone who uses motion video or streaming video. The SyncMaster 915n
will be on display during CES 2005 at the Samsung booth, #11024 in the Central
Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6th – 9th. The unit will be
shipping nationwide in February 2005.

“Samsung prides itself on being a global leader, bringing to market the
latest advanced technology with a consumer-friendly feel. With the explosion of
online and computer gaming and intensive, multimedia-based computer
applications, consumers today are demanding high-end display viewing technology
and the SyncMaster 915n offers the ultimate solution,” said Monica Islas,
Product Marketing Manager for Monitors, for Samsung’s Information Technology
Division (ITD). “With the new SyncMaster 915n and its ultra-fast 8ms response
time, Samsung once again flexes its technology muscle and offers consumers a
competitively priced display featuring best-of-breed technology that is sure to
please.”

The SyncMaster 915n incorporates Samsung’s MagicSpeed™ technology, which offers
a drastically improved response time compared to traditional LCD monitors.
Samsung was the first to launch an LCD display with a 12ms response time and is
now raising the technology bar even higher with the 915n’s 8ms response time. By
refining the product development process, Samsung has been able to achieve one
of the fastest response times on the market today. A faster response time
ensures better performance of motion video, and produces smoother edges, clearer
images and a more natural image response. Response time is a critical factor
that consumers should consider when purchasing an LCD monitor. When viewing
motion video on displays with slower response times, users may see images that
appear to “ghost” or look generally out of focus. Samsung’s MagicSpeed offers
the ideal solution for viewing motion video on an LCD and offers the best image
quality and response time for an optimized viewing experience.

Offered in a stylish and attractive black color, the SyncMaster 915n features a
super-narrow bezel that is just 0.5-inches thick and removable base. This makes
the display perfect for tiling or wall mounting. The 915n also offers a high
brightness rate of 300cd/m2, a 700:1 contrast ratio, a fine pixel pitch of
0.294mm and offers a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024.

MagicTune™ and MagicBright™ Technology
The SyncMaster 915n continues Samsung’s tradition of offering consumers added
value to its award-winning family of displays without charging a premium price.
The monitor features Samsung’s proprietary MagicTune™ software and MagicBright™
technology. MagicTune, a true launching pad for future technology, enables users
to have full control over all display features with extensive color adjustment
capability per an individual’s personal viewing criteria. This produces the best
front of screen performance for the optimal personalized viewing experience.
MagicTune allows users the ability to save the various personalized display
profiles for whatever environment or mode the user is in. MagicTune gives users
the ability to adjust the monitor’s various settings with a simple click of a
mouse — all of this functionality is completed with no additional cable or
interface — MagicTune communication is completed through the video cable. This
is a more user-friendly and accurate method to adjust the display’s settings to
each users own personalized preference and working environment.

Samsung has also incorporated its MagicBright technology into the new SyncMaster
915n. MagicBright allows users to change the brightness of the display to adjust
to various applications with the simple push of one button. MagicBright offers
settings for text computing, viewing video on the Internet and for entertainment
applications such as gaming, video streaming or even viewing DVD’s on your
display through your computer. Samsung backs all of its monitors with a
three-year parts and labor warranty as well as toll-free technical support 24
hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, Samsung offers a three-year Advanced
Replacement Program, three-year Repair & Return or Exchange and three-year
Shuttle Exchange for hassle-free repairs.
