Founded in 1938, Samsung is currently the world's leading consumer electronics brand. The massive South Korean conglomerate entered the television market in 1972 and began making flat panel TVs in 1999. Samsung offers LCD monitors in the flat panel variety with sizes ranging from 15-46", and come in widescreen or standard aspect ratio. Most come with multimedia PC/DVD/TV Inputs. According to retailer links on their Web site, prices range between $500-8,000. Their flat panels are quite light as no model weighs over 100 pounds, but their thickness varies depending on use of the stand. On their 46" model - with stand the width is 16" and without the stand it's 6".
