Great quality monitor!

 

I like Samsung's logo

Out of box picture settings, plug and play mic/speakers/web cam! It has a great web cam, picture quality is EXCELLENT! Mic works pretty good and speakers aren't that bad to be monitor speakers, I have dual boot xp pro / vista ultimate and vista dropped...

Piano black finish leaves finger print marks and lots of dust on the monitor, but Samsung was nice enough to include a dust cloth so that problem gets fixed very easily! Speakers aren't the best thing out there but what can you expect?! Thats not worth...

Samsung SyncMaster 225uw 22in LCD

 

Samsung's 22in "ultimate communications station" turns out to be average in all but design.

we reviewed previously, while a 5ms response time seems positively pedestrian. But here one needs to keep in mind two things: first, that the 225uw is oriented mainly towards business users, and second, that these could well be real specifications,...
