SyncMaster 2263DX Facilitates Multiple Monitor Environment Without
         Additional Costs; Named 2008 CES Innovations Honoree
LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--Samsung Electronics America, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics
Corporation, a world-leading manufacturer of professional LCD and PDP
display products, today introduced the new SyncMaster 2263DX monitor,
a 22-inch LCD monitor that features an additional 7-inch monitor
connected to the display. The breakthrough model, which creates a more
productive work environment for business users with dual screens, was
chosen as a 2008 CES Innovations Honoree. A selection of Samsung's
monitor lineup will be on display during CES 2008 at the Samsung
booth, #11033, in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center
from January 7-10.

   Featuring a tandem seven-inch monitor connected to the primary
display, the 2263DX monitor facilitates simple connectivity without
the cost of an extra monitor. Facilitating a multi-screen environment,
the 2263DX monitor is ideal for users that require multiple screens to
run programs and applications simultaneously, therefore increasing
productivity. For example, the extra screen enables users to create
and edit documents on the 22-inch screen while using the additional
screen to simultaneously instant message, read emails or video
conference with co-workers around the globe. Furthermore, the 7-inch
tandem screen is attached via a pivoting, swiveling arm, allowing it
to be positioned on either side or above the main display for a
comfortable, highly customizable work environment.

   Leveraging Samsung's proprietary UbiSync technology, the 2263DX
delivers simple plug-and-play USB 2.0 connectivity, allowing for
effortless dual-screen configuration. The 2263DX monitor's USB
connectivity also allows the monitor to provide USB hub functionality,
facilitating simple communication and connectivity. Furthermore, the
display features HDMI input, providing for superior image quality and
next-generation audiovisual input.

   The 2263DX monitor is optimized for Microsoft's Office
Communicator 2007, enabling users to communicate with colleagues
around the world without needing to pick up a phone, put on a headset
or lean into a microphone. The monitor is an ideal choice for
true-to-life web conferencing, which can reduce long-distance phone
costs and the need for frequent business travel, as the monitor is
equipped with a built-in 2.0M pixel high-resolution webcam, dual-array
microphone and speakers.

   "With a 7-inch screen working in conjunction with a 22-inch
high-performance display, the 2263DX is an outstanding solution for
the increasing body of consumers looking for a multiple-monitor work
environment to increase productivity, facilitate seamless
communication and stay aware of business-critical news and events,"
said Young Bae, senior product manager, display group, Samsung
Electronics America, Inc. "This intuitive, easy-to-use monitor is a
perfect compromise for consumers seeking to combine heightened
multitasking abilities and increased efficiency and productivity,
while not sacrificing image quality and response time.

   With a wide 160/160 viewing angle and a high 1680 x 1050
resolution on the 22-inch screen and a resolution of 800x480 on the
tandem screen, the SyncMaster 2263DX provides clear image quality and
maximum versatility. Additionally, this innovative display features
Samsung's MagicBrite3 technology, as well as an 8,000:1 contrast ratio
complemented by a 5 ms response time, enhancing the user's total
viewing experience and reducing blurring or ghosting while utilizing
multimedia applications.

   The SyncMaster 2263DX monitor is currently available for an MSRP
of $549.99 at a variety of retail outlets and through Samsung
resellers and distribution channels, which can be located by calling
