Samsung Syncmaster 2233RZ


The 2233RZ uses a 1680 by 1050 resolution panel with a 3-millisecond (gray-gray) pixel response, and it employs 120Hz technology, which doubles the frame rate ( the number of images displayed per second) of traditional 60Hz LCD monitors. Theoretically,...

Great 3D effects with Nvidia's 3D Vision glasses. Good color quality

Single input. No USB ports. Wobbly stand

When used with Nvidia's 3D Vision glasses, the Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ brings killer 3D gaming to the desktop, but it's not big on features.

Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ


Stereoscopic 3D technology for PCs – not to be confused with 3D graphics – has been around for more than half a decade, courtesy of graphics processor manufacturer Nvidia, but due to a dearth of displays that do justice to the technology, consumers...

Does stereoscopic 3D with aplomb; looks slick ; like a miniature Samsung TV; great for fast-motion video

Dearth of connectivity options; simple but restrictive stand; low-ish native resolution for HD lovers

The SyncMaster 2233RZ offers terrific performance for its size and category but little in the way of functional frills.

Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ


Editors' note: Currently, the Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ is only available bundled with the Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision Kit . Samsung plans to release the SyncMaster 2233RZ in late April.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ offers great movies and games performance and has a useful onscreen display. The monitor is aesthetically pleasing and is compatible with Nvidia's 3D Vision Kit. We saw cleaner textures in fast-moving games in the 120Hz mode.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ is expensive for what it offers. It only supports DVI. There's no screen height adjustment, rotation, or pivoting.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ is the best choice for 120Hz 3D stereoscopic gaming on the PC, with great movie playback to boot. For all other needs, there are cheaper alternatives.

Montior No Longer Works


While this monitor lasted it was really great. I have a huge boxy monitor which has lasted 10 years now. It's only like 18 inches but it lasted 5 times longer than this piece of junk. If there was a 0/5 I would give that rating because I value...

I thought the monitor was pretty dang good while it worked. The picture quality wasn't really that much better than a lot of lower priced monitors I've seen. But, I never used the 3D glasses on this monitor. It's not worth the $400 for sure

The monitor lasted until the service warranty ended and then one day I turned it on and it wouldn't stay on for more than a few seconds. I took it into a local repair shop. It's been two weeks and they are still looking for a replacement for the...

Samsung Syncmaster 2233RZ Black 22" 5ms 3D Gaming 120 Hz Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 20000:1 w/ HDCP Support


If you're worried about this not being a true 120hz monitor then I'm here to tell you not to worry at all. This game can handle 120 FPS easily. This is also coming from someone who hated LCD monitors.

Very beautiful monitor. I love it... Smooth gameplay with games like COD and QuakeLive and the picture quality is excellent. Received my monitor in 2 days


Consumer review by:



Monitor is perfect and is everyting that I thought it would be. Be aware that the tech support SUCKS if you do have any issues.

Great monitor perfect for people who play cs. 120hrz is awesome once you get the correct cable. Samsung tech support is awful. Stated it would be 9-14 business days before they could ship me the cable that THEY failed to include


Consumer review by:



Some have noted some light bleed on top and bottom of screen and also poorly designed base....But I didn't experience either of these issues. setup took less than 5 minutes. With the onscreen menu it was up and running @ 120 Hz 1680 x 1050

This monitor is the best purchase I've made for my gaming system, hands down. The picture quality is beautiful bright and crisp.I found the over quality to be excellent

Works Exactly as the Reviewers Said


You should know this monitor doesn't have any height adjustment or tilt, and only one DVI input. Still, this monitor is absolutely perfect for what it is. If you want a 120Hz monitor, THEN YOU NEED THIS MONITOR! :D

The title says it all. The display quality looks great and I have not seen any ghosting at all! This is expected if you've read a single review on this monitor
