Samsung - SyncMaster BX2231 monitor


Samsung has a knack for putting together attractive-looking displays, and it's fair to say that the SyncMaster BX2231 does nothing to dent that reputation. What's it like? Samsung's 22in, 1,920x1,080 resolution monitor is enclosed in ...

Samsung SyncMaster BX2231 is a stylish-looking monitor with a fine selection of options and features, many of which are entirely frivolous. However, they don't distract from the fact that, for the asking price, this display serves up a highly watchable...

Don't know what happened


this was my 1st LED, I have 4 LCD's and I've never had an issue with any. I love Samsung, I hope this is just one of those freak things.

when I got this monitor I was impressed by everything about it, great picture and speed

It died out of the blue in 9 months, the back light just gave out

Yes, viewing angle is adjustable


Thanks, NewEgg, for the reviews on this site. When I first got this monitor, it seemed that the viewing angle was not adjustable, and that adjustment method is not mentioned in the documentation that came with it. Like Brent said, below, the adjustment...

Great image quality, nice and crisp

High-gloss black base tends to pick up reflections, kind of a distraction, but not really a big deal

Not a con but you are stuck using them in landscape mode since they dont have vesa mount. You are going to rig something up to use them in portrait mode. I love the first one I bought 2 more to set up eyefiinity. Love the bezel its the thinest out...

Slim, thin ; Bright ; Contrast ; color reproduction ; and audio out a huge plus

None except read other thoughts

Loving this Monitor!


Buy it!

Gorgeous Display. I love the Instant-on of LED's. Full brightness in an instant. The colors are rich and beautiful. The three inputs are such a great bonus, as I have a computer and PS3 hooked up to it. There are a ton of great menu features

A small amount of light bleeds from the bottom edge during black scenes. Also, the sensors on the bottom for menu configuration are finnicky. Just took a little getting used to

It does tilt*


The monitor does tilt, the tilt mechanism is just unusual and initially stiff. Look at the rear of the monitor where the base attaches, you'll see a rounded rectangular piece that's flush at the bottom with space with some grooves at the top. This...

good image quality

HDMI inputs require overscan setting adjustments for many video cards, should also include DVI

Good monitor for the price, beware of stand.


I would have given it 5 eggs for the price I got it at ($180) if it weren't for the stand. For it's regular price of >$225 I would give it 3 eggs. If you can get over the fixed stand, it's a great monitor and recommended.

Great screen quality for the price ; Nice color saturation balance ; Slim design is sleek and looks modern and great

STAND: This is a fixed stand that can not be adjusted in any fashion. I ultimately sent the monitor back after a month of use because I didn't want to "rig" it up to make it work, it distracted from the nice design and look of the monitor. The monitor...

Screen tilts forward


Very unfortunate that the pictures are misleading about the screen position.

Good monitor, BUT

The monitor position is not adjustable in any way. The pictures make it seem like the screen is vertical (or even slightly tilted back) but the one I received was in fact tilted FORWARD approx 5 degrees. There is at least one other comment about this...

What more could you ask for?


I wouldn't really consider it a con, but the stand feels a little wobbly when you are moving the monitor, though you will never notice it during actual use. I purchased two of these and neither one had a single dead pixel. Very satisfied with these...

Super clear text, 1080p on a 22 inch screen has pretty amazing detail. Great brightness levels. 2 hdmi inputs are really great to have, as well as the vga input. Super, super thin screen. And on top of all of that, a 2ms response time

The touch sensing buttons seem a little unnecessary, though they do respond perfectly

Great Monitor


Nothing Really Its Just A Great Monitor And Just Wish The Stand Could Adjust Upward, lol. But Thats Not Enough To Knock An Egg Off For The Review.

Great Size Monitor, Great Picture, Lightweight, LED, 2ms, Price

No Adjustable Stand Which Is Very Annoying Cause It Looks Down Which I Cant Stand, But You Might Need To Get A Monitor Stand For It. Thats The Only Thing Bad About This
