Review: Samsung 22" LCD SyncMaster Monitor, Model 2232BW


The Samsung 22" LCD SyncMaster Monitor, Model 2232BW is just about as sexy as an HDTV when it comes to crystal clear clarity, colors, and of course that sleek, slim look that nearly all Samsung LCD's have. This monitor offers an orgasm to the eyes,...

Samsung Pebble 22" LCD 2232BW


It would be fair to say that the monitor is the most important part of any computer. As the main point of communication between the computer and the user, it limits the quality of any multimedia experience. Be it work or play, a good quality monitor is...

A stand so bad they may as well have given you a bit of wood and some nails. Attracts more dust than my video collection

Decent monitor, owned for a year


This monitor has been used a minimum of 8h a day every day, in many cases its on all day. I have it hooked into a MAC and a PC and toggle between the two and on both systems the colour/image are clean and sharp. Only downside is again, the colour...

Price was good, has 2 inputs at the back, image is clear and sharp. Using for Graphic Design work

No rear mounts for attaching to a wall/stand. Also, noticeable difference in tone between top/bottom of the screen. Sometimes have to scroll up/down to check colour when doing larger designs

Samsung (2232BW) LCD Monitor, Black


I purchased a SAMSUNG SYNC Master 2232 BW Plus on August 16, 2008.

Looks Nice ; Color is Nice

NOT RELIABLE - Good chances it will malfunction after the warranty is over

NEWEGG BLACK FRIDAY DEAL $159.99 After $50.00 Mail-In


What a deal

I can live with a flimsy stand

Consumer review by:

Not worth the trouble


Probably since the warranty expired (of course) I've been having numerous problems with the monitor. It produces ghost images on my screen, it flickers and has lines running through it which the only way to resolve the matter is by shutting off my pc...


Faulty all around

Samsung (2232BW) LCD Monitor, Black


For the price of 209 i was quite amaazed for the image quality and it also comes with DVI and VGA conectors so you can use it on two pcs at the same time. With an area of 1680x1050 it has space for everything on it...and it looks good

Price, image quality

The base suport looks kinda week

Graet Resolution


I bought this 22" flat panel monitor after trying the Envision 22" monitor. The Envision had a dead pixel in the middle of the screen that showed up in dark areas. It is far superior to the Envision. I'm completely saisfied with the Samsung and...

Screen is bright & clear. Setup was seamless with Windows Vista

Base was a bit of a hassle to attach to monitor

Consumer review by:

Great monitor at good value


This is a good price meets a good quality. A little worse backlight bleeding compared to 226BW, but a better viewing angel at 170 degrees. This monitor is the best alternative if you are considering 226BW but don't want to gamble for the right panel.

Good price, 170 viewing angel

A little bleeding, stand could be sturdier

Consumer review by:

Not bad! looks better than the 226BW


I came Fry's to purchase the 226BW, it looked flat and grey on the demo unit ( no mater how I fiddled with the controls and I did check to see if had a dfferent source) and Fry's only had 3 "returned units" left which was spooky. So I figured I would...

Clear and Sharp

cost $50 more than the 226BW The light bleed thru is evident at the top and bottom
