Summary: Throughout years of use and abuse this monitor has been able to keep up and has not had any major issues. The in monitor speakers broke soon after we got the monitor it has not inconvenienced us considering we have always used external speakers.
Summary: Got it to turn on once. Never again after that. All reviews say that it's difficult to turn on an off. I rec'd it while I was changing offices. Took me 3 months to get into the new building. At that point the warranty was gone.
The best investment product I bought in a long time. "GET ONE"!!

Summary: I am really impress with my new Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM, The Visional is outstanding,the picture is perfect, I would recommend this too anyone who is interested in buying one, this would be a good investment too add to your desk top computer.
Summary: I loved this monitor - and then it started acting funny. Menu buttons wouldn't work and the picture adjust box would randomly pop up. I tried everything too fix it, but it kept getting worse. Now it is unusable, as the monitor randomly cycles through monitor settings with boxes popping up everywhere. I have used other monitors for YEARS, and I got just over a year out of this one. VERY dissapointed, Samsung.
Summary: I HAD LOOKED AT MANY MONITORS BEFORE I BOUGHT MY SAMSUNG. I WAS MORE IMPRESSED WITH THE CLEARITY THAN I HAVE BEEN ON THE SIZE (22in is a big screen). I WOULD RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN UPGRADING THERE MONITOR. I GOT MY AT A UNBELIVABLE PRICE. THANKS, STEVE REDDICK. INDIANA, USA.
Summary: I had to fuss with the controls to make text readable. After I made the text readable, the contrast poor enough that I couldn't distinguish between alternating rows on my spreadsheet of white and pale yellow.
Summary: This is a heads up for anyone with a Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM monitor - mine started smoldering and filled the house with the fumes of burning plastic - which are poisonous (especially for children and pets). I was lucky that I was up late and was able to unplug it as soon as I realized where the smell was coming from. (the billowing smoke from the back of the monitor was a dead giveaway). What if I had been upstairs asleep? (which is where my children were).
Summary: I've been using one of these displays for business for over a year now. Nothing to complain about. Great value. I don't use the speakers. I'm ordering a second so that I can run dual monitors.
Summary: I just got 2 of these monitors at work and they are terrible (compared to my HP LP2065 and Dell 2007FP at home). They are low resolution (1680x1050 for a 22" panel vs 19200x1200 for the good ones). Do not buy these unless you are color blind. Definitely stay away from these if you do any sort of professional graphics work because what print or distribute will be the wrong colors.
Summary: This is a very solid 22 inch monitor. I love the very crisp picture it portrays and the 22 inch screen is awesome! You can even watch DVDs and netflix movies as if it were a tv. I am definitely glad I purchased this. I even purchased it as a refurbished product and it came as if it were brand new along with a warranty. Had it for about 6 months and absolutely no problems so far. Save yourself 100 bucks and buy it refurbished. I got it for approx. 200 shipped.
