Until now, all of the USB monitors we’ve laid our eyes on have been no larger than about 10-inches.  Samsung’s latest, the LD220, which I assume is 22-inches in size, includes a D-Sub and USB video input making it ideal for laptops, which often have no more than one video port to spare.  No word on a price or street date, but some of the other specs include a 5ms response, 300 cd/m2 brightness and 30,000:1 contrast ratio.

Update: Looks like LaptopMag played with these in January and says that the 22-inch sports a 1920×1080 resolution and thanks to  Samsung’s Ubisync can daisy chain up to 6 monitors.
