Samsung Syncmaster 2243BW 22-inch LCD Display Review


All widescreen LCD monitors are not created equal, and unfortunately this leads to pretty confused looking consumers as they try to understand why identical screen sizes can differ in price by hundreds of dollars.

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...

Samsung 2243BWX LCD monitor


With a native aspect ratio of 1680x1050, a 5ms response timer and 1000:1 contrast ratio, Samsung's SyncMaster 2243BWX doesn't make for terribly exciti...

Height adjustable stand, build quality, good performance

No HDMI input, no DVI cable included, touch-sensitive buttons aren't backlit

Samsung's SyncMaster 2243BWX monitor doesn't really offer anything to get excited about, but it's good value at this price. The lack of an HDMI input is a sour point, but for office use this is a good choice.

Samsung SM2243BW review


Helpfully, the Samsung SM2243BW's screen height is adjustable, although the amount of travel isn't as great as on some panels. The limited clearance makes it trickier than it might be to spin it through 90 degrees, but at this price, pivot features are...

With a good colour palette and some impressive features, the Samsung SM2243BW is a worthy contender if you can find one for under £180.

Samsung SM2243BW review


The classy Samsung SM2243BW is a 22in flatpanel monitor encased in a simple but pleasingly curved frame with a sleek silver finish. It will look just so in a well-appointed living room or office.

With a good colour palette and some impressive features, the Samsung SM2243BW is a worthy contender if you can find one for under £180.

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...
