Consumer review (

Samsung SM223BW


The wide format and 1280 by 800 pixel picture quality certainly make for easier working.

I find the contrast Was not able to improve contrast by > 75%, which is still a bit washed out in some circumstances - perfectly suitable for most work, but picture editing was slightly more difficult than it need be
