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?

Setting up the screen couldn't be easier – you just pop the stand into the oval base, slide the screen into place on top, and then tighten it all down with the screw underneath. Of course, for the price you wouldn’t expect any kind of height...

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

Consumer review by:

Much better than expected.

 

Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality, affordable wide screen monitor. If I had to get another monitor I'd definitely go for this one.

I love the clear display - it looked much better than the display that I saw. It is a very good size and the design is flawless

It attracts dust like an over-oiled bike chain! My software CD didn't work, but I scrounged around to find the software that I needed

Very Connective HDTV & Monitor for $200

 

This is my first flatscreen HDTV & I've only had it for a couple of weeks. I needed a screen to serve as both TV & PC monitor & in those respects this Samsung had the best features of the 20"-24" TVs available locally. I was quite happy with the $200...

This $200 Samsung connects to most external devices. PIP lets you toggle between the HDTV & another device - e.g., PC wordprocessing during TV commercials. Audio is great with optimizing presets from music to speech. Video is fine with most lighting

The picture is lousy under both bright & dark backlighting in a dark room - this is a common problem for many flatscreens, but the Samsung seems particularly bad. Wallmounting of this screen is difficult & VESA mounts are apparently unavailable

Horrible humming, buzzing noise

 

Stay away from Samsung display product.

Nice price. Purchase it from Costco at $199.99. HDTV LCD w/ 2x HDMI and VGA.etc. enough for me to connect all my devices. USB port build-in feature allow to play most of video format thru external USB devices, nice, but can not play Real format

Humming, buzzing noise from inside LCD. To stop the humming, buzzing noise, blacklight setting must set to highest (10). Even though, when watching TV, some scenes darken part of the screen, humming noise follow the contrast of the screen

Customer Service?

 

I purchased the 226BW 22-inch monitor (I also own a T240HD) and registered it online, taking advantage of Samsung's WRITTEN promise of a 3-month warranty extension (over and above the 3-year standard warranty). My standard warranty expired on July 28,...

excellent picture on the 226bw

unbelievably poor warranty support

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.
