SAMSUNG S23A300B

 

Monitor looked great. it did seem slightly washed out, but wasn't bad enough to complain

from the time of me writing this and when the monitor actually went bad is quite a while ago. I might have this review mixed up with a gateway monitor that i had bought. Though it doesnt change the review in the since that the gateway that i had bought...

I went from 2 17" CRT Samsung SyncMasters to these. I love these monitors. Took time getting use to actually having screen space

I'm done with SAMSUNG!

 

Another thing was Samsung's telephone relations. I was passed off -- from service rep to service rep -- no less than three times per phone call. There were also several times during each call that I was asked to wait for two or three minutes. I bet...

None. I ran the update patch for the monitor, it went dead. It looked like any other monitor for about 2 minutes. SO, I sent it in for service and that's where SAMSUNG's problem starts

It went to service, it5 took several days for the UPS shipping tag to get to my email. I had it in to UPS the next day. Shipping/service took about two weeks. Got it back, same box I shipped it in (shipped back single box!?!). AND IT'S DEAD AGAIN! They...

SAMSUNG S23A300B High Glossy Black 23" 5ms Full HD LED BackLight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DCR 1,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

 

You would think by now that the dead pixel issue would be resolved

Cheap. Good image

There is a dead pixel

Consumer review by:

meh

 

Picture quality is better than that of an average cheap LED LCD monitor. Not worth anywhere near MSRP though. Why do manufacturers include DSUB and not DVI cables with 1080p monitors? VGA can't look good on these monitors!

Sharp and clear monitor. Draws less than 30W

Wobbly stand and no VESA mounts ; Brick power supply adds to the mess on the floor behind my computer desk ; Backlight bleeds through on edges. Looks a little washed out when watching movies ; DVI cable not included

SAMSUNG does not disappoint

 

Great monitor, I have a SyncMaster 2243BWX at work and purchased the A300B for home use. Easy to set-up, auto programing, wife is impressed with the display and readability

This monitor has a fixed stand, it DOES NOT TILT, as stated in the newegg.com Details and one review ; It dosen't raise or lower as one would expect from a monitor, however the SAMSUNG MagicAngle feature compensates
