I sent in my 170mp for warranty service TWO MONTHS AGO, and, after having it lost, mis-routed and being offered a refurb, I secured a replacement from Samsung. The unit has a 9/2002 manufacture date. However, I can't really use it, since I bought a different unit a while ago. For full specs click here Short specs: 400:1 contrast ratio, 240 nits brightness, composite, S-video and TV tuner inputs. You can watch TV full-screen (or a standalone DVD player via the S-video input) without even having your computer on! Or, with a computer, you can watch TV using resizable picture-in-picture. Has a built-in line doubler, so no scanlines! As you may imagine, this is better than having a TV tuner card because TV tuning does not depend on your computer being on, and sapping resources (you can have a TV picture on top of a DirectX or OpenGL game, if you'd like) (Note: No component inputs and no HDTV capability) What's included: Monitor 15-pin DSUB signal cable Remote control (needs 2 AAA batteries) Power adapter brick Power cable Manual Warranty card (unfilled) CD-ROM F-connector to BNC adapter (The antenna input is, for some odd reason, a BNC type socket. The adapter will let you connect to a US cable system or antenna) Edit: This IS a regular NTSC tuner, and will work with American broadcast systems, cable systems, DVD players and VCR's. Fine print: The monitor is _new_ as far as I can tell. I opened the shipping box to check contents (power adapter, remote, etc), but the monitor was not removed from the box. Therefore, I did not personally inspect the unit's performance. Therefore, all warranty claims must be handled through Fedex Ground (if it's shipping damage) or Samsung (if it's damaged in other ways). I was assured by the service center that the monitor was _perfect_, and the box does not appear to have shipping damage. $500 shipped in CONUS Trades: I'm looking for a 4-channel speaker setup suitable for computer use. Please let me know what you have. Or, I would like a set of 4 bookshelf speakers with decent low-frequency response and a 6.5" woofer. These would be used with a 4-channel power-amp for the abovementioned computer setup.
