Samsung 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor 2220WM-HAS


High-resolution wide screen monitors are very hot right now. As with most computer trends, one will see a new technology start off expensive before growing into a less expensive and more mature product. LCDs have come a long way themselves;...

MagicBright settings for easy switching ; Bright and colorful display ; No ghosting or bleeding in games ; Very consistent color at all but most extreme angles ; No Dead pixels

Poor Speakers ; Inability to display certain resolutions ; Slightly askew track in the base

Nice Monitor for the Price


I've been using a very nice 20-inch IBM CRT computer monitor for several years and it's done a good job. However, it had the old-fashioned 4:3 aspect ratio, it weighed a lot (65 pounds!) and it used more than 100 Watts of power. My wife upgraded to a ...

Inexpensive ; crisp resolution on both VGA and DVI inputs ; lightweight ; automatic setup

Complicated controls ; tinny audio ; image degrades off-axis

I bought this product because I'm an artist and wanted a LOT of screen space to work on. I love how its enormous width allows me to put my reference material on one side and my art on the other side with plenty of room for tool bars. The ...

Overall, the Samsung and Viewsonic LCD monitors provide good reliability and value. I have three developers on low-end PCI-E cards and two, each of these monitors in multi-view on Windows XP. They certainly are happy, as you will be too!These monitors...

Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM Widescreen LCD Monitor


Very nice display with vibrant colors. This was a big step up from the Dell Ultrasharp 19" I was using before. An adjustable stand and with vertical rotation would be nice, but I can live without it for this price. Speakers are OK, but one does not buy...

Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM Widescreen LCD Monitor


Really wanted to replace my five year old computer this Christmas, but settled for replacing the monitor. Adding a video card (Diamond Radeon 9550 with 256MB, about $65) to my old machine allowed me to take advantage of all the benefits this monitor...

This is my 3rd or 4th large LCD monitor. Quality of image is superb. Style and design also look great on my desk. Only disappointment was the poor quality of the built-in speakers. If speakers not that important, this is a great value.

The display is nice. Good price for the size. You can notice back light bleed on the top and bottom of the screen (on mine) when playing a game. It's a little annoying but you get used to it.
