Samsung SyncMaster F2380 review: Samsung SyncMaster F2380


The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 sells for as low as $330 from online retailers. That makes it just a bit more expensive the Samsung SyncMaster XL2370's $300 price. The F2380 also offers two DVI ports, one VGA, full four-way ergonomic adjustments, and a...

The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 has wide viewing angles, useful ergonomic features, and some of the deepest black levels we've yet seen.

The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 has a low brightness level and lacks several connection options.

The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 is a well-designed monitor with good performance that skimps on connection options.

Samsung SyncMaster F2380 23-inch 16:9 Widescreen LCD Review


The use of C-PVA technology means the SyncMaster F2380 can achieve 178° horizontal and 178° vertical viewing angles, so colours won't shift or dim if you move your head relative to the position of the monitor.

Samsung SyncMaster F2380


Is a 23in, Full HD, fully adjustable, cPVA-panel display with multiple digital inputs for around £200 too good to be true?

Samsung's Full HD, 23in SyncMaster F2380 doesn't quite live up to our high expectations, but at around £200 it's still one of the best monitors going.

Samsung F2380 LCD (PC) - Gameplanet Review


A great panel for colour management professionals or amateurs on a budget, but steer clear if you're a gamer.

Excellent contrast and colour reproduction. Great viewing angles. Low black crush and colour shifting. 100% sRGB colour space (claimed). Great build quality. Cheap for what it is

Slow response times. Ghosting of fast moving images. High processing lag. Not as good as an IPS panel

High fidelity for low funds.

Samsung SyncMaster F2380


Samsung's SyncMaster F2380 flat-panel display is an interesting beast. It's a 23in LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which qualifies it as a 'full HD' display. It has a claimed high viewing angle and an impressive 150000:1 'dynamic'...

So what's the bottom line? Well, the SyncMaster F2380 wasn't flawless, but it's something we'd be happy to have on our desks. It looks professional, it does a good job and costs less than we expected
