awesome monitor, awesome price

 

If your looking for a quality monitor for around $200, look no further. I did a ton of research and asked a lot of people what I should get before buying and it all pointed to Samsung. At $189 this is a superb monitor.

I love this monitor. The colors are stunning compared to my older HP w2207. Everything is super clear and pictures look amazing. I love the 1920x1080 resolution and quick response time for gaming

I would have liked a glossy finish on the screen itself and also a stand that had height adjustment. The touch controls are tough to get used to

Awesome So Far!

 

I'm an official, certified Samsung nut and this monitor is a great example of why. I just really don't think you can get a better monitor for under $200 and maybe not even under $250. This monitor produces clean, crisp images, was easy to setup, and...

Great clarity, nice color, gorgeous casing, nice price, it's a Samsung

I had to move my wall mount to make it fit right. Does that count? Didn't think so. No cons

Nice monitor for the price

 

The pixel pitch (~0.25 mm/pixel) is very fine. At 1920 x 1080 resolution, the standard 96 dpi screen font setting is a little small for the 22" monitor. I change the screen font to 120 dpi and the text looks much better at normal viewing distance (1'...

Samsung makes nice monitors. The one I received has no defective pixels

There is a little blacklighting bleedthrough at top and bottom. The shiny black finish tends to show noticable dust or fingerprints

made for arm mount

 

stuck this on an ergotron arm mount. holes on the back are perfect and the curved back makes it look great on the arm.

lightweight yet doesnt feel cheap. very clear and bright picture

control buttons are like a touch panel on the front. they can be hard to use in the dark and prone to accidental pressing

SAMSUNG 2043SWX Glossy Black 20" 5ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 15000:1(1000:1) w/ HDCP Support

 

CD Manual really didnt work, but the monitor is working as it should, so I will not take an egg away.

Great monitor, easy to set up and adjust. Looks great! Have a Samsung Plasma TV and expected the same performance from their monitors as well. Not disappointed!! Awesome shipping again by New Egg, no damage, no dead pixels

None

SAMSUNG 2243SWX

 

a neighbor came over to check it out and bought it that same night.

beautiful design, excellent picture quality, great size. serious bang for the buck

as many have said there is no tilt. this is not a con for me as the monitor is already at the perfect height and tilt, but it might be a con for other people

For Max

 

The folks at Samsung worked as a team and corrected their error as soon as it was noticed. It took only two days from the call about the erroneous shipment to my home untl I picked up my replacement. I never spent a dime on shipping. Took the old...

Don't own this monitor, but I now have three Samsungs based on their service. First monitor had the switches fail at four months. Samsung had a computer glitch and could not bring up a UPS Store near me to ship the replacement. A few days later...

Through a computer interface glitch my replacement was delayed because Samsung could not find a UPS store near my house, office, or former office all in St. Louis

Great 16:9 ratio that DOES tilt

 

This was my first LCD monitor purchase. My previous desktop monitor was a 17" CRT monitor on a 5 year-old system. I already own a Samsung LCD HDTV and with the purchase of this 2243SWX, I am more than impressed with Samsung quality. It has a great...

1080 resolution (16:9 ratio) at a great price ; Swivels AND tilts (despite what other reviewers say) ; Screen is wider than traditional 22" monitors ; Great dynamic contrast ratio compared to others in this price range

Tilt adjustment is very stiff but definitely possible ; No height adjustment ; No USB ports

Dead after 1 day! :(

 

I would strongly suggest getting the extended warranty, I have asked around and Samsung was suggested to me as a good quality monitor, but after this experience I don't agree. Any company that ships defective, or short life span products does not...

Nice monitor, very bright and vibrant picture. Stand is stable and swivels nicely, no height adjustment though. Cable management is cheap, like a twisty tie, but it works. Front panel controls are touch sensitive, very cool! The bright blue power LED...

This beautiful monitor failed on me after 1 day of normal use. I couldn't believe I was so unlucky to get the one that failed, but it happened. Cost me about 10 USD so far to send it back to NewEgg. I am waiting on a replacement now. I wonder what the...

great monitor for the cost

 

Easy to assemble, great resolution, sleek finish

No tilt, but I knew that. Neither the drivers supplied on CD-ROM nor Samsung website download center had working driver for Windows 7. Standard microsoft drivers works fine, but wish drivers from Samsung was out there
