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 review: 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.

Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ: 120Hz LCD Monitor Review


We usually mention LCD monitors with 120Hz refresh rate that have just started selling when we come to speak of Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision stereoscopic glasses. However, our experience shows that you may actually benefit from high refresh rate even...

Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ review


Why does this 22" Hertz so much?

120Hz LCD display

Way too expensive ; Disappointing chassis/ports ; Default over-saturated colours

Desperate for the apogee of smooth frame rates? Look no further. Anyone else shouldn't bother.

120 Hz and response time, Gaming experience, Black reproduction

No HDMI, Viewing angles, Inaccurate picture reproduction, Minor clouding

Samsung 2233rz is the new King of gaming monitors. Its performance in games is not yet perfect but the gaming experience on Samsung 2233rz is very smooth and trailing has been reduced to a minimum. We found no serious Overdrive trailing and input lag...

Sharp as a tack, bright as a bulb and fast as a cheetah. Worth it for the 3D alone.

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...
