Samsung SyncMaster 2243BW Wide Screen LCD


For each type of product and in each market, there is usually a specific price segment that will provide the best value proposition for consumers, often known as the 'sweet spot'. For quite some time, the 19" widescreen was the sweet spot of the...

Great Image Quality ; Good Response Time ; 4-way Adjustable Stand ; MagicBright Presets

Wobbly Screen ; Controls Hard To See

Performance Summary: Throughout our testing we found the Samsung 2243BW to be an excellent display. If we were stuck with a single brightness, contrast and gamma setting for all of our testing, as is the case for most monitors, then we would have found...

Good but right 3 inches died


Would be 4 eggs if not for the stripping and the menu being just ok. Would be 1 egg if not for the over-all quality of the monitor. I see see a clear picture looking at it for the side.

Nice colors. Ok menu. Adjustable stand works great but we don't need much adjustment

Worked great for a couple years. The right 3 inches of the screen has different colors of strips running top to bottom. each stripe looks to be a pixel wide. Sometimes the stripes will be gone and the monitor looks normal, but very rarely

Excellent value


Took me a few tries to calibrate this monitor and it's still not spot-on with my printer. But whose is w/o some expensive insturmentation? The wide screen is excellent - even colors on mine, no stuck pixels, good response time with videos. I'm giving...

Bright screen, no artifacts that I can see ; Tilt-swivel-height adjustment ; USB ports are nice ; Price is right

Touch sensitive controls are not nice ; I had to use tape flags to locate them and they are easy to mis-key w/o tactile feedback ; A little dimple/texture change for each location would be an easy addition ; Swivel a tad loose - feels cheap ; Height...

SAMSUNG 2243BWX High Gloss Piano Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height/Pivot Adjustments and 2-port USB Hub 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1


I really liked it personally. I would be stingy normally, but just decided to get one more for such an awesome price.

I bought one of this monitor to facilitate my work for programming. IT'S AWESOME ; I think it's the BEST QUALITY of this CHEAP PRICE ; Didn't want to miss this opportunity. So I ordered one more last night to make it dual

Just the bleeding that other people also mentioned on the top and bottom, but once you adjust and work around it's not that noticable ; When the monitor is vertically set and if the viewing angle gets large, it's little hard to see

Beautiful Widescreen Monitor


If you need the monitor to pivot a lot, you might want to buy a different stand.

What a view! This monitor is fantastic ; It was quite the upgrade from my old Nec flat screened monitor. Beautiful color! Stand is sturdy

It can take a few minutes to adjust out of the box. The stand does not make vertical pivoting the monitor easy

So far so good


I would recommend this monitor to friends. Samsung Display quality has lived up to it's reputation for me. Have not been burnt yet by them.

Image quality is very nice.. It is night, and day compared to my old CRT monitor. Upgrading to this monitor was like playing on a new entire gaming system ; The Samsung stand is very secure, and sturdy. It's not some cheap snap in stand, this one makes...
