Samsung MD230X3 Eyefinity 3x1 Display

 

In this review, we're going to evaluate the MD230 display and share some experiences with the 3x1 Eyefinity setup.

Nice narrow bezels ; Everything included for total landscape or portrait setup ; Accurate color and good image quality ; 3240x1920 ; 5760x1080 ; Control included works for individual or all displays ; You can add extra MD230 panels to upgrade your display

LCD response time is a little slow ; Ghosting noticed in some games ; HEAVY ; Quite expensive

Wow. If you've spent your life gaming at a 17" - 19" screen and haven't experienced a game on anything bigger at a 22" LCD, there really are no words to describe gaming at 3240x1920. Even if you've gamed on a full 1080p large TV, keep in mind that the...

Samsung MD230X3 review

 

It's a great idea and image quality is brilliant, but the finish is poor and the price too high.

There's no doubting the image quality or extra fun that this set-up brings to games. It's got some really neat features, too, such as a single power input for all three displays. However, the finish isn't as good as we'd expect and the price is...

Samsung MD230X3 Review

 

Three screens on one stand sounds convenient, but is the MD230X3 widescreen Heaven or Hell?

Samsung may be pitching the MD230X3 for heavy multi-tasking rather than gaming, but the excessive pixel lag makes the £1,300 price a joke. While the kit includes a useful remote control and three 23in 1,920 x 1,080 screens, you can buy three superior...

Samsung MD230X3 review

 

Are three monitors really better than one? David Ludlow takes a closer look at the bigger picture in our review of Samsung's latest monster monitor.

Either way you cut it, the MD230X3 is expensive. Whether or not it's worth buying will depend on whether you want the hassle of building your own system and if multiple inputs and management from a single remote and power cable are important. If you've...

Samsung Syncmaster MD230X6

 

The Samsung Syncmaster MD230X6 with its six monitors is just about the craziest and most beautiful display setup we've ever come across.

A huge panoramic display area with six high definition monitors speaks for itself in terms of pros and cons.

The bezels weren't quite as thin as we would've liked, causing some annoyances when playing games.

Excellent Setup

 

I bought the x3 over a year ago and I enjoyed it so much I upgraded to the x6 version. I kept the x3 and rotated the monitors to portrait instead of landscape. What a fantastic setup. I noticed people write reviews for things they find overpriced when...

Very nice setup. I've owned many multi-monitor setups over the last decade or so. This was by far the best of them. The monitors blend well together with the small Bezel and its one of the best mounts out there. The remote to control all six at once is...

I wish they were IPS displays. But they are still very high quality with good viewing angle and excellent color replication ; The response rate on these monitors is slow enough that gamers will not like them. I don't game so I don't care

Honest Feedback

 

I noticed people write reviews for things they find overpriced when they don't actually own one. That isn't helpful to anyone. If its not in your budget or you find the bang-for-buck not to your liking, just don't buy it. These are designed for VERY...

This display is designed for multi-monitor setups. If you're a gamer you won't be happy with the refresh rate but I am a business user and this works perfect for that setup ; Excellent viewing angle. Good colors, though they are NOT S-IPS displays...

Not IPS. Would of bee nice but that isn't worth an egg as what you're paying for in the bezel ; You can buy three of these for $1650... Or you for all over ~$150 more you get a stand, cables, and a remote to control all three of them. See MD230X3. And...

Great product, but way overpriced

 

Today, for $750 you can get three 22" monitors and a $200 Ergotech Triple-monitor stand. Remove the bezels with a butterknife and you've got a very inexpensive homemade version of this nearly $2,000 product.

Extremely thin bezel - Short of a $6,500 curved screen, this is the best eyefinity/surround setup money can buy

Price: Unless you're swimming in money, this is not worth buying until the price drops down to the $900-$1,200 range
