Photos: Hands-on the Samsung Dual Display 2263DX

How do you make a good LCD screen even better? You add a second display via USB and call it the Dual Display 2263DX, that's how

Crave knows two screens are better than one. Many of us use twin 19-inch displays, while the real high rollers rock twin 30-inch Dell 3007WFPs. We don't need to -- but that's just how we roll. So you can imagine just how intrigued we were when Samsung showed us its Dual Display 2263DX -- a 22-inch monitor with a second 7-inch monitor poking out of the top.

It may look odd, but Samsung says it lets users have their favourite applications running uninterrupted in a totally separate, always-visible desktop space. It's right, too: we can definitely see ourselves running common apps such as Outlook, or a media player on the 7-inch display, while the main 22-incher gets on with the serious stuff. Like Facebook.

The Dual Display 2263DX will be available to buy from your local Currys.Digital later this month for £280. We'll have a full review as soon as we can, but in the meantime don't forget to click through for more pictures of the system in action. -Rory Reid
