Xmas Wishlist: Part 1-Samsung 2333SW 23″

Posted by on Nov 30, 2009 in Wishlist | 2 comments

Welcome to the first part in our Xmas Wishlist series. I have a real beauty that I want to share with you today. As you can see above, this monitor is absolutely beautiful. A friend of mine has one of these bad boys and watching series or a movie on here becomes a whole new experience. With the resolution it has, full 1080p HD can be enjoyed, and games come to life. This is also the cheapest full HD monitor widely available, but it certainly is not affected by its price. This monitor is a steal from Dynax at just over R2000. If you are looking for a new monitor but don’t want to spend a fortune, this monitor is the only one that should even be considered!

Take a look at some of the specs.

I want one of these guys for Christmas! My 19″ feels so small next to my mates 23″ now. Also the fact that mine has a few dead pixels and a tiny bug squashed under it. Yes, it is rather disgusting I know, but I can’t get it out! What I would do for this screen!

Xmas Wishlist Series

Posted by on Nov 25, 2009 in Wishlist | 0 comments

I have started to introduce a few post series regarding a number of different topics. Xtreme sports is just one of them, with a number of series set to follow.

This series will highlight some awesome tech gadgets out there that you could add to your Christmas wishlist. I will only endorse brands that I believe in and feel that they will give you the great experience that you as a reader of Captain deserve. There will be no shameless punting of brands simply to be cool or for any random reason.

This series will feature at least one item a week leading up to Christmas, with places that you can get your hands on the goodies as well as prices. Along with that information, I will provide my reasons why I have picked that item over something else.

Stay tuned for the first part! It looks sexy and…I can’t give away spoilers!
