KDS K-2237MDWB Black 21.6" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ HDCP support 300cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers

 

Like i said above, great price for a decent monitor. I'm not picky, so if you're not either, you will like it as much as I do!

Great size for even better price. Buttons are conveniently placed on the right side, out of sight. No dead pixels. Easy to use on-screen menu and an auto-adjust button, comes in handy

None

Great monitor

 

This monitor has been great. I'm using it with a PS3 (HDMI -> DVI) and it looks fantastic. The monitor has wide range of color settings (i.e. cinema, games, etc.). My only real complaint is the included stand does is not adjustable at all. Other...

HDCP support ; No dead pixels ; Wide variety of color settings ; Decent speakers

No HDMI support ; Does not support 1080p ; The stand is very basic

Beautiful Display for the Price

 

Great display for the price. My 2nd KDS monitor, will be buying an identical one for 2nd screen in the near future

Speakers are bad, but you have to expect that from speakers built into a flat panel monitor

Perfection

 

Go with Newegg. Always reliable and always competitively priced.

Very high quality video image for the average user. Newegg pricing makes it a great bargain. Arrived with no dead pixels. This is my fifth KDS monitor in ten years and all were outstanding. I've used this one extensively for going on two months now....

The base is somewhat lacking in adjustment features. So what? The speakers are useless. So what? For $200 bucks you want it to mop the floor too? Do we expect dual 10 inch woofers with separate mid-range and tweeters in a monitor

Pretty Good for the Price

 

It is crystal clear with no bad pixels. I have a little higher end Viewsonic so I can compare the 2

Speakers suck , I mean really suck (compared to the Viewsonic which are acceptable for everyday use). Advertised as a 22" but it is 18 3/8 wide compared to the Viewsonic @ 18 5/8 Nitpicking I know but noticeable when side by side

Overall pretty good

 

Don't sit too close. These are big screens, so sitting closer will really increase the angle at which you're viewing corner pixels, which will result in noticeable discoloration. Probably better on the eyes to be at a bit of a distance anyway =)

Very clean exterior, inexpensive. Using the multiple inputs to have one of the displays do double-duty as a) a 2nd monitor for my main computer using DVI, and b) as a 2nd monitor for my laptop using VGA. Construction seems pretty sturdy. They are VERY...

One dead pixel out of two monitors. Both monitors worked just fine, but within a few days one of them stopped responding to button inputs (menu, power, etc.), so it couldn't have its brightness adjusted. After unplugging that monitor, I could no longer...

KDS K-2237MDWB Black 21.6" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ HDCP support 300cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers

 

Need to procure some small washers the screws that came with the ergotron are about 1mm too long on the bottom 2 holes and about 2mm too long on the top two holes, so if you plan on using a dual display set up like i have on a ergotron be prepared to...

As others reported its a slim black frame around the LCD with no logos on it. The buttons are out of view mounted on the back flush with the bottom. Very professional looking. and clean ; I have them installed on a dual head ATI 1900, the monitors are...

Does not come with a DVI cable does come with a vga though. 1 of my monitors had 1 dead pixel

Sharp and Clear Screen, Horrible Speakers

 

Haven't tried it for games, so I can't review how the lag is for fast frame rates, but 5ms should be fast enough. Newegg shipping great as usual.

Clear and sharp details at all resolutions. So sharp, my middle aged eyes can see the smallest fonts on the highest resolution. My desktop and working area are now huge at 1680 x 1050. No bad pixels, been working fine for 6 months. No issues

Built-in speakers are junk. I tried them once, and went back to my powered speakers. I made part of my decision to buy this particular monitor hoping to be able clear away my powered speakers. Not the case, the built in speakers are horrible sounding,...

Good LCD

 

Would def. buy another one.

Came with no dead pixels, very good quality. Was impressed by how much better it looked than my other 216BW from Samsung

Onscreen menu could use some tweaking. Default colors were pretty stale

Consumer review by:

Fantastic!

 

Great monitor, not one stuck or dead pixel and the resolution is beautiful! For the price, simply unbeatable and as usual NewEgg delivered promptly. I have been buying from NewEgg for a number of years and they have always been prompt with delivery and...

None at all
