Samsung LD monitors extend notebook displays

Samsung has finally brought its two LD-series notebook monitors to the US. Introduced in February for a release in Korea, the LD220 and LD190N are companion monitors and are meant to act as secondary displays for notebook PCs. The 22-inch LD220G sends its video signal over a USB port and sports a 1080p resolution. It otherwise acts as a USB hub, adding extra ports for adding more USB devices.

The 18.5-inch LD190N has a 1366x768 resolution and connects through a VGA cable. Otherwise, both displays have a brightness of 250cd/m2, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000:1 and a 5ms pixel response time. The LD220G is priced at $250, while the LD190N costs $150. [via SlashGear]

    Huh?

    Why is this meant for laptops? The USB connection? Why would I use USB to connect a display instead of displayport, DVI, or vGA?
