Worth every penny


For the price, you can't go wrong with this monitor. I picked up two of them for a third of the price I paid years ago for my 19" sony xbrite with limited resolution. If you do have a problem with the size/placement/availability of the control...

Coming from a sony xbrite display, I can say I am truly impressed with these monitors. I am running two of these in a dual display, and both monitors are flawless. No dead pixels, no variation in color intensity etc between the two ; I was worried...

I've seen a lot of complaints about the placement of the buttons, but that has not been an issue for me. I have no real issues with the monitors that I wasn't aware of prior to purchase ; If I were to complain about anything, I would have liked a...

SAMSUNG EX2220X Glossy Black 21.5" 5ms LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 1,000,000:1(1000:1)


buttons are on bottom and difficult to use, and not the best feel. Although I prefer the cleaner look this affords. be careful not to damage the power socket, and make it wobbly.

Looks amazing, wide viewing angle. LED for a great price, uses very little power

The first one I purchased had a faulty power plug. Returned got a new one, not all the LEDs turned on immediately, magically worked later

Excellent monitor


Didn't buy at my prime online vendor NewEgg, having gotten great deal at local store after seeing in operation and loving what I saw.

Top-flight picture quality right out of the box, having made almost no adjustments in using with cable TV set top box, and HDTV looks beautiful. The LED backlight, with its instant-on and no change in brightness with warmup (as is the case with my...

Too limited tilt control - I've had to resort to spacers under base to get good vertical alignment, as vertical viewing angle is rather limited, with color & intensity going off at only 30° off axis (below axis is worse than above axis). Limited...

Just got it. WOW!


The magictune software ran once. then never ran again (Windows 7 64 bit). Also, LCD's are finally getting close to CRTs. I can see what looks like the familiar 60hz flicker on the screen. Just like with the old CRTs. I may end up trading up to a 120hz...

Much better than the asus flourescent backlit model i bought last year. Colors look UNBELIEVABLE. I watched a bit of fifth element on netflix and loaded up minecraft. my brain can't handle the goodness. Beautiful 60hz monitor so far

instructions for putting stand together dont' make sense unless you pop the cd in and go to the instructions there

Good deal!


I bought two of these monitors for my PC at home, one to keep landscape and one to mount portrait. I couldn't be happier. Illumination with the LED backlight is very even in either orientation. Excellent buy!

single dead pixel in the middle of the screen in the bottom right quadrant. newegg won't cover the return cost as they're not the manufacturer. not too noticeable unless screen is a solid color.


flashing standby light bright and intrusive

Definitely worth the price.

Everything looks great connected through DVI, LED backlit, better viewing angles than some other LCDs

Feels a little cheap, bad menu buttons

Good so far


Just got it today and you can tell it was used but thats doesn't bother me. No dead pixels so far the colors contrast are alright after i messed with the menu for about 5 mins it still could be better. The stand is kinda wobbly and doesn't seem to...

Awesome Display



The Display is wonderful. Next to my other two screens their white looks like yellow. The Contrast is beautiful, and I couldn't ask for more. As a Graphic and Web Designer I cannot afford a cheap monitor. This is worth the buy... big time. I am...

Button position bad
