Samsung SyncMaster 2443BWX 24 Inch LCD Monitor


The SyncMaster 2443BWX is just about what I am looking for in a monitor. It combines a large, high resolution screen with respectable specifications, sleek and simple aesthetics, and a good range of motion to make getting comfortable with it rather...

» Screen was in perfect condition, » Excellent picture quality, » Sleek and understated housing design, » Tilt, pivot, rotate, and height adjustment, » No frills... Simply a nice display without the extras you might not want anyway (USB, speakers)

» Packaging should be improved, » Monitor placed in a garbage bag and loose fitting foam with plenty of room to move, » Bezel was scuffed, like other refurbished monitors received from, » Would prefer actual buttons over the touch sensitive...

Poor viewing angle renders the monitor unusable.


The limited viewing angle made the monitor unusable for me. One might survive if you always sit in the same position (and don't mind that the color seen at the top of the screen is different than that at the bottom) but I use it at home with a slightly...

I bought a 2443BW because I wanted the 1200 vertical lines for reading docs with the full page on screen

Horrible viewing angle = unusable due to change in color and contrast ; Ex. rich yellow folder icon at top of screen and pale yellow at bottom

Beautiful - but flawed, at least for Mac users


This review applies only to Mac OS X 10.4.11 on a G5. I have not tested using 10.5.x (Leopard) or Windows. At first glance, the 2443 BW HAS is a gorgeous display. For 80% of what I need to do it gets 4 out of 5 stars, and the price is reasonable. The...

Outstanding value for money, compared to other similar 24-inch displays. Choice of several workable color-setups

No software provided for controlling color setup on Mac. No control over auto-dimming "feature", makes display of slide shows and photo galleries problematic. Difficult to adjust menu driven setup using membrane-type buttons on bezel

great for the value


Just bought this today. I've been using an apple monitor for a while. I would have kept it but Apple monitors are not meant for gaming so i had to give it up for a Samsung. And of course it's has vga and dvi combo which is nice especially if you do...

the color is very rich, the software is great to use for any newbie. I like the touch buttons on the monitor no phyiscal buttons like the other companies. The Swivel was a bonus

wish it had the ability to adjust up and down. and I wish it has a usb hub that would be a bonus

Excellent Monitor


Excellent buy

Excellent monitor, is no longer carried by Newegg but just for reference, have had it for over four years (bought it used, even) and just now is showing dead pixel lines on the bottom, still going strong

No speakers

Nice LCD as long as it stays horizontal


I don't recommend this for people who wants to use a monitor vertically.

Sharp and large horizontal viewing angle

Very small vertical viewing angle. Even you directly face the monitor, the right or left edge of the screen looks darken

Solid Monitor


Very clear,crisp details. Wanted the higher native resolution and the benefit is noticeable. Color excellent. Running on two GTX 460's - some ghosting but acceptable. Overall, very satisfied

Would prefer 2 ms response though fast enough for most purposes. Had one problem with red screen getting progressively worse during first 30 days. RMA and service from Samsung was good. Monitor has been fine since - six moths of continuous use

Great Monitors


These are super duper for most everyone. I'm not going to spend $550 on a 24 inch IPS panel LCD.

Great 1900x1200 monitors, I have a bunch of older 245BW monitors at clients going strong but these are the replacements now. Running three in widescreen. Glad they are back in production

First manufactured in 2008 so no Displayport... but not really needed. Get the Accell adapter for Eyefinity if you need it ; Also be aware this IS a TN pane but then again it's not $600. For 90 percent of us these are great. Sure is better than a 1994...

Awesome Samsung quality


Beautiful picture quality with bright, vivid, rich colors. Tilt and swivel base are very nice for photo editing, true 1200 hd, good connectivity (hdmi would be a nice addition). Colors are close to spot on out of the box. Calibrated it with my...

Built in monitor controls aren't the best. Doesn't affect me because I don't use them. Also, this monitor is $40 more expensive than the SAMSUNG 2443BWT-1, but there appears to be no difference in features or performance. I only bought this model...

This monitor has been great. The widescreen display is what I was going for. Have had no problems so far

The pillar holding the display seems delicate but everything's been good so far
