great display


great for gaming, almost like having dual monitors without the 2 monitor bezels in the middle, 3 of these monitors would be a sweet setup for gaming

to bad they dont make these anymore, might be able to find one somewhere on the net

not led backlit

Best monitor I've ever used.


If you see them on sale somewhere, buy as many as possible. I wish I had two of them.

I've had this monitor for around a year, man it's reliable, looks great (picture wise, and out of box wise), and is just the best in every way. I don't think there has ever been a better monitor that I've used than this

Response time could be a bit better, and could have made a few more

Great monitor


Replaced a lite-on drive that stopped working, hardly ever need a dvd drive anymore but it's nice to have for the occasional use.

Still going good, high res, great for viewing webpages or documents side by side

Images and color are hard to get correct on this monitor

SAMSUNG 2343BWX High Glossy Black 23" 5ms 16:9 Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 20000:1 (DC) w/ HDCP Support


Be aware of the native resolution of the monitor as its fairly high. I don't mind the look as it affords more real-estate to comparably sized monitors, but some people may find that icons and text become too small to see.

Great monitor for the price! Displays 1080p very well, games look amazing if you have a beefy enough system to run them at native resolution

Edges of the monitor have troubles producing blacks, but for the price its adequate

Helpful Review


Let me clear up the base DOES tilt, take the monitor off of the base and squeeze the metal and it will move though it is very stiff, move it back and forth a bit to loosen it up and you will be able to pretty easily tilt it even when your monitor is on...

Base isn't so bad! It does tilt (Elaborated in Other Thoughts) ; Touch panel works nicely ; Great resolution and color ; Great price (Bought when it was 190 w/ Free Shipping, would have paid more)

I wouldn't call the base a con, really, but it could be better

Excellent monitor!


The monitor is 2048 x 1152; while that is pretty good (and it is certainly better than 1900 x 1080), it is still not 1200 pixels high (the size is great for videos, but I am really looking for more vertical reading space for viewing web pages and...

Excellent view-ability. Very bright; fast; clear. Bought 3 of these to use (two on my home workstation and one for a client site). I am very pleased with the results. Very good LCD quality and not a single bad pixel. Screen resolution is excellent

1. Height is not adjustable ; 2. While the monitor supports rotation, the stand that it comes with does not ; 3. Screen resolution is non-standard

Very nice monitor


I find I will need an after market stand so I can spin to portrait mode for web dev.

I hit the sweet spot on price on 12/29/10 at one-nine-zero w/ free shipping. I was trying to decide but the above pricing made me buy ; All previous posters' praises apply

I do wish it had an HDMI with an external speaker port but that would drive up the cost- see above

Great Value


I'm a graphic designer and the precision is everything, this monitor beats all my expectations. This is great value deal. Samsung is one of the best monitor makers, and this monitor doesn't look its price. Its very well made. Small packaging and easy...

I love the sharp contrast and very precise colors

Can't make the monitor higher or lower
