Excellent display for the price

 

I like the Samsung displays, and this one is no exception. It is easy to view in different light situations, and the display is very crisp.

Very Nice Monitor

 

Absolutely worth the money, if you are a digital artist or gamer, or both, and are on a budget.

I am coming from an older 17" Acer that served me well for several years. However, as a household of digital artists and gamers, we needed an upgrade ; This Samsung has a bright, sharp image, with good contrast and color. The included calibration...

Touch control buttons take a minute to get used to ; Bummer there is no HDMI input, but not a deal killer

died after 3 weeks

 

I like the quality of the image on the screen, but Samsung's quality control looks like on downhill. It is the third screen died on us in about 1 month. The other one I had to talk to Samsung and they were keep telling me that the screen was good since...

nice image when it works

Died after couple weeks. It looks like the external power supply burnt out

Pretty good

 

Great image, no dead pixels, nice size and price ; Got this at Costco for $140

It is non adjustable. This would normally be fine except the stand is constructed such that the monitor is tilted at about a 15 degree angle upwards. I had to lift up my chair quite a bit to make this monitor work for me, otherwise you can't see half...

SAMSUNG S22A300B High Glossy Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD LED BackLight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DCR 1,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

 

actually called samsung because the papers in the box said it comes with both DVI and VGA. She said it can come with either or. They just seem to pick one in this case VGA , pretty lame but cables are cheap enough.

great monitor for the price ; No changes had to be made , plug n play

like stated above , should have come with DVI cable instead of VGA

Vivid Display - Excellent Value

 

This is my 4th Samsung monitor. I have had no issues with any of them, and my first Sammy still runs fine. I also have a Samsung HDTV that I purchased from Newegg back in 2007 and it runs flawlessly daily. Samsung stuff is well built, reliable, and...

I grabbed the S22A300B to replace an older 4:3 aspect ratio Samsung that simply refuses to die. This was on sale here at Newegg and I couldn't resist it. I have no regrets because the display is simply stunning. Black levels are truly black and the...

None so far

Pretty good

 

this one has a mat finish on the screen so there's no glare from windows or near by lights which is great.

This monitor has a very good picture. there's really no comparison between this one and past ones I've had or even my laptop when it comes to clarity

For what ever reason I think Samsung went with cheaper buttons on this thing. they're not very responsive when you push them. Kind of bothersome but I didn't think it was that big of a deal to remove an egg

I replaced my old 65# monitor with this 3# Samsung SA300 and "Why didn't I do this sooner". The Samsung monitor is terrific! Easy to set up, easy to use, great opticals, and works flawlessly.
