One LCD, Two TV Views

SAN FRANCISCO (05/26/2000) - Need to keep a constant vigil on the stock market's ups and downs? Then try Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.'s SyncMaster 150MP, billed by the company as the first 15-inch LCD display with a built-in TV tuner and picture-in-picture capability. Use PIP to review the latest stock prices on TV while working on a spreadsheet. You can also view movies through a VCR connected to one of the panel's two video ports. Video images on my shipping unit were good but a bit grainy; text on word-processing documents and Web pages looked sharp. The 150MP ships with a remote control, so you can make adjustments from afar. But priced at a whopping $1229, this monitor isn't for the cost-conscious. Hope the market's up. Samsung; 800/726-7864;
