Samsung SyncMaster B2230HD

 

With decent connectivity and media playback from USB, is this Full HD 22in TV/monitor the hybrid you've been looking for?

Samsung B2230

 

Power saving, full HD monitor with a classy design

Good power saving options, stylish design, well placed rear ports, good color reproduction

High price, touch controls aren't backlit, tilting mechanism is very stiff

Poor resolution - extended monitors

 

Overall a nice free-standing monitor for a TV

When using as a third monitor, the resolution was poor, even through HDMI

Samsung B2230 Glossy Black 21.5"

 

Works really well, low price and nice size monitor

in the dark it is very very hard to see where the turn off button is or any of the other buttons, but not a major issue for me

Listed input specs are incorrect

 

The product shipped does not match the description on NewEgg's web page. The product listed is a B2230N, but what is actually shipped is a B2230, which has less input ports. Also, the "details" tab on the web site, under "connectivity", the monitor...

SAMSUNG B2230N Glossy Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 70000:1

 

Very good monitor, nice and light, good look, great design. Nice blue LED. Easily adjusts. Plus, its inexpensive

Seems over saturated or too bright. Messing around with settings does not change this. No HDMI input

Problems First Day

 

Nice image. Easy to assemble

Screen went black when conecting coax for TV. There is no reset button to go back to factory default just in case. Unnaceptable. Screen keeps going dark. Can barely see image. Have to fiddle with on and off until image comes back on. Very...

Works great

 

I had a problem with the power cord initially. I thought it had a faulty connection at the back of the monitor, but it turned out to just not be pressed in fully. It takes quite a bit of effort to get it fully seated.

Very easy to work. Plugged HDMI cable in for computer, connected coax for cable and scanned channels and that was it to make it work. All the games and tv shows have had great picture quality so far

Only reasons I didn't like this monitor was due to the fact it does not tilt and does not have a DVI port, but I already knew about those before I bought it

Product Specifications

Samsung B2230 widescreen LCD monitor features a glossy finish accented by an elegant clear acrylic bar along the bottom bezel. Inside, leading-edge technology results in picture quality second to none, with 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. To save energy and money, the MagicEco feature allows you to work at 100%, 75% or 50% brightness. And for ease of use, the MagicReturn feature automatically displays dual-monitor content on a single monitor when one monitor is powered off. The Samsung B2230 monitor features a rich, glossy finish which is accentuated by the clear, crystal-like acrylic along the lower bezel. And the back of this monitor has a unique wave pattern. It's a tasteful, elegant alternative to the same old thing. The high dynamic contrast ratio of the B2230 creates deeper, more dramatic dark tones and brighter more striking light tones. Now you can enjoy images that echo reality with rich, vivid color and brilliant natural intensity. When it comes down to the details, conventional monitors simply pale in comparison.
