Sharp image, Vivid colors, Lightweight

Consumer review by:

Buy LCD instead.


At first the screen may look fine, but it doesn't take long to notice the colors are unnatural. The screen is just far too bright, in terms of back lighting that is, and there is no option to turn the back lighting down. Its hard on the eyes, and I noticed that a lot of games were too bright, affecting the experience. Just go LCD instead, you will get a much better image quality for a better price.


Touch controlls, Brightness, Inaccurate colors, Poor adjustability

Overall Great products Good color and Contrast


Good for Web Designers, Great colors and good energy saving as it is LED

Great colors, good contrast, A must have screen for Web designers and Graphic Designers. As i am a web designer so i tried to buy a latest model and it turns out to be very good

Touch controls are a little difficult to deal with ; Particularly when you are setting brightness and contrast

samsung bx2331 monitor


I would recommend this product. i've always been a fan of samsung for their monitors and tvs. And haven't been disappointed yet either.

bought in jan 2011 and it still runs well. it's thin, bright, sharp... etc. for the $$ it's def worth the investment. looks better than my old lcd too

the touch-buttons to adjust the monitor's brightness, contrast, color etc. is the only complaint. once you get use to the button's special "touch" then it's easier, but still annoying sometimes ; no other problems... yet

Good monitor


Good monitor for the money


Consumer review by:

Great monitor, some caveats.


Overall very happy with my purchase, wish they were still in still in stock, would love to pick up another one.

Great displays! Crisp but not to bright, better than average contrast and color reproduction, lots of useful settings, thin, light, and attractive. Incredible bang for the buck for the $180 something I picked these up for

Resolution is a little low for this size, but not really that big of a deal, they still look great and that is to be expected in this price range. My biggest complaint is that the stand is not detachable once attached. I like to keep the boxes to pack...

Good price (used)


I bought this monitor a while back, as a recertified deal from, and while it definitely serves it's purpose, the cons I listed above are frustrating. I use a good variety of Samsung products all over my home, but really have noticed a slide...

Native 1080p Resolution ; Good Color contrast* (see cons) ; Dual HDMI inputs, One D-Sub RGB ; HDMI Audio Pass-through works like a charm ; Superb viewing angle

Magic Color and Magic Eco are pointless, you will never use them ; Bad Contrast/Display brightness ergonomics ; Monitor in AV Mode, 1080p does not display properly (oversamples pixel count) ; HDMI Black Level Normal isn't black at all, its almost light...

Going Strong


Only one con really, but still dont regret getting this monitor. Has a pretty nice "magic angle" thing, not sure what it does but it seems to display the screen nicely from any angle. Other things - Thought the touch buttons were cool at first but now...

Beautiful looking monitor, ridiculously thin and glossy black is pretty sexy. Picture quality is amazing. I use it a lot for gaming, watching movies, and for doing Design work in Photoshop and Illustrator. Double hdmi ports is awesome to be able to...

Not adjustable. Pretty big pain because there is absolutely nothing you can do about the angle beside propping it on something. Also there is no mount holes so you can't hang it if you wanted to

Bad design ruins great monitor


This monitor is a nexus of horrible design choices. This is what happens when some idiot with a degree in Industrial Design makes tool pretty w/o any consideration for the tool's purpose. I love this monitor; it is fantastic. I would not purchase it...

Sharp, crisp picture ; Great colors ; Fantastic resolution ; Excellent response ; Perfect form factor ; Vesa mounts ; HD support ; Samsung quality

One of the worst stands ever invented by man. Monitor cannot be leveled using this stand. So, go ahead and add extra $$$ to the price for a good VESA stand ; Also, the monitor itself does not have any glare. Fantastic. However, some idiot put bright,...
