Samsung Syncmaster 2033SW LCD Monitor

 

We have reviewed quite a few Samsung TVs already this year, so I think it's time we shift focus to the more personal, more engaging product segment which is PC monitors. Samsung has a respectable name here too, and today we have something they term as...

At MRP 8,250, this monitor is reasonable as you are getting a 20 inch for below 9K. The blacks are not the best, but accuracy and brightness can impress. The colors too are quite good due to their neutral amounts. It's a good monitor for budget...

Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW

 

Measuring less than 22 inches, the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW certainly won't replace your big-screen HDTV. But in our subjective tests, this $200 (as of 10/28/09), 21.5-inch LCD monitor showed impressive image quality.

Shows realistic, vibrant colors

On-screen controls are confusing to use

The reasonably priced SyncMaster 2233SW makes up for its no-frills feature set with solid image quality.

At $190, it's difficult to care too much about the Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW's shortcomings. Sure, it has low screen brightness, no HDMI connection, a clumsy onscreen display, and no ergonomic features aside from tilt. However, most people will be...

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW has a low price, good performance in movies and games, and a robust onscreen display.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW's screen has a low brightness and its OSD can be difficult to navigate. Also, it lacks an HDMI connection and is missing many ergonomic features.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW lacks many bells and whistles, but makes up for its shortcomings with a low price.

This monitor looks great and performs very well. After the initial set up, getting the monitor installed on the base (unless you are going to hang it), it sits very sturdily on the desk. The black color is sleek and the design is sophisticated. The...

Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW

 

Samsung has always been one of the top LCD monitor makers and one of their latest models, the SyncMaster 2233SW is a 22-inch 16:9 wide screen display that offers full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080. The sleek design and good image quality make it an...

Excellent, sleek design ; Full HD (1080) resolution ; Excellent image quality ; Non-glossy screen

No HDMI input ; Limited adjustment with stand

One thing we were disappointed with is the lack of a HDMI input since Samsung advertises this monitor as "full HD". It can, as we said, display the HD resolution of 1920x1080 natively, but it isn't true high-definition without using HDMI as your input.

Review: Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW LCD

 

This reasonably priced LCD makes up for its no-frills feature set with solid image quality.

Text on both black and white backgrounds looked crisp and easy to read, even at small font sizes. We also saw nuanced color, particularly in photographs, and our test portrait showed realistic skin tones and shading without any distracting contrast

Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Review

 

It seems like computer monitors, especially LCD monitors are finally starting to move over to the 16:9 aspect ratio. When we first started seeing widescreen models they were all 16:10 aspect ratio, so you would have resolutions like 1680 x 1050 and...

Sleek look ; Vibrant colors ; 16:9 aspect ratio ; Great backlighting

No HDMI ; No cable management ; No vertical adjustment

Final Thoughts I think that the SyncMaster 2233SW is a great mainstream display for anyone looking for a 22-inch 16:9 display. The display is very sleek and would look great on anyone's desk. Samsung did a really good job in making this display...

The Samsung SyncMaster 2033SW is a 20in LCD monitor with a 1600x900 resolution that's useful if you want to use your PC to watch videos shot in wide-s...

16:9 ratio, good image quality, stylish design, excellent colour and contrast, non-glossy screen, no ghosting

No HDMI, unsteady stand

The Samsung SyncMaster 2033SW is a 16:9 LCD monitor with a high resolution for its screen size. It is well designed for watching widescreen HD movie content, but it doesn't have the connection options to make it a great all-rounder.

Full HD, good image quality, stylish design, excellent colour and contrast, non-glossy screen, no ghosting

No HDMI, DVI cable not included, ball-hinge stand design is awkward

The Samsung SyncMaster 2333SW offers excellent image quality and a stylish design. The lack of HDMI and an awkward stand mount are minor issues, and a Full HD resolution and great colour are more than enough to compensate.

Full HD resolution, superb image quality, great design, excellent colour and contrast, non-glossy screen, no visible ghosting during fast motion

No HDMI, no included DVI cable, poor vertical viewing angles, ball-hinge stand design

Samsung's SyncMaster 2233SW may lack HDMI connectivity, but this LCD monitor remains a great choice for the home and office thanks to a stylish design and great image quality.
