Samsung Syncmaster B2030 Monitor

 

It's been a while since we reviewed a monitor and that's making me a bit edgy now. Blame it on the junkie that the job creates. Today's product is Samsung's brand new series model, the B2030. It's a 20-inch LCD monitor for today's' intensive PC usage,...

At a price of Rs. 8700, this Samsung monitor is a very nice piece. It's simple and straight up in design, with very bright backlight and good contrast. Colors have good accuracy too. The dynamic contrast though slow in adjustment the monitor is...

A decently priced 20-inch LCD monitor with good brightness and contrast. Does it make a good buy?

Absolutely Thrilled!

 

This display is powered by a EVGA 9600 GSO card. It does well and considering I am not a serious Gamer it handles my needs. The processor is a 2.5 gig Core2 with 3 gigs of on board RAM. I don't know if that information is necessary, but my comment is...

If you are looking for a very nice 20 inch flat panel wide screen, here it is! Remarkably simple setup using the software disk. No failures, works the first time and allows all the tweaking necessary using the mouse. Bravo, they finally got it right....

No real cons. However, be aware the stand is a bit wobbly but does okay. In the short period of time I have used this display I am pleased beyond my expectations

When you make your monitor display smaller on regular monitors, you get angry and readjust to a compermisable settings. In this case, you can keep it nice a small, which is nice for doing many things. You don't get confused, and all windows can remain...

This monitor is phenominal. It is defeats expectations for a wide screen, so buy in confidence. Samsung as usual is always way ahead of the game, which is demonstrated and even hidden within the new monitor, at first glance, you just want to get into...

The stand is a little wobbley, however it is super stable. The plastic is durable and the neck is very thick. It is more an issue about the surface that it is placed on, which causes the wobbling, which is important to understand that this is high...

Amazing

 

This monitor looks amazing...1600x900 resolution makes doing everything nicer, there is so much more space for activities. The picture is bright and clear. Also, I bought from best buy for 139.99, so was an awesome deal. Though I would still say it's...

The power cord at first seems a bit loose, but you just have to shove it in the hole

Decent enough...

 

Decent general purpose montor. Disk comes with a driver and some utility programs. Didn't use the driver, but am intrigued by Samsung's MultiScreen program. Unfortunately I have yet to find documentation for it on their web site.

Sharp, crisp picture with good contrast and brightness. Set-up was fast, and while it was well packed, the packaging materials were not excessive

Instructions in the box were a little dis-jointed and confusing regarding monitor settings - though the pdf on disk was thorough and easy to understand. The stand is a little lacking and is wobbly if you go to move the monitor. This could definitely...

Drop dead gorgeous

 

Have only used it briefly to verify the new build was working properly. The real verdict will come from mom after I set it up in her office.

I chose this monitor as the centerpiece of a system I am building for my mother ; There are plenty of monitors out there that offer a very nice picture in a very basic flat black housing. Nothing wrong with that at all and it is what I use myself ; But...

None that I have found. It is a little more expensive than comparable monitors. But those other monitors don't look near this good
