Summary: I've enjoyed this monitor for a while, but recently got a computer running Windows 7. The resolution options offered for the monitor are now all wrong. Photos are stretched very wide, etc. No problem, I figured I would just go to the Samsung site and get their drivers. Unfortunately their driver failed with error messages. So I talked to their live chat and they informed me that it's not compatible with Win 7.
Summary: After two years, my 2233bw started flickering. I thought it was the driver. Spent months checking cables and settings, updating software, all to no avail. The flicker and scanning problems drove me crazy, and Samsung wouldn't help me out. I'll stay away from Samsung products in the future and recommend you do the same.
Summary: The refurbished monitor I originally purchased had some "issues". I contacted the seller and was provided with another unit, despite the fact that their tech support found nothing wrong with the original monitor. They provided the second monitor "as a courtesy". The second monitor works GREAT! No issues were found. I must recommend the seller as GREAT customer service vendors! THANKS SO MUCH!
Summary: I asked for this monitor for Christmas of '08 and I still love it. I did Alot of reasearch and real world test for monitors before deciding on this one. Not only does it have a superb picture, but the overall design is just right. Not too much flare, very sleek. I did encounter one problem that I already knew about by reading other reviews, the oval shaped joint shown in one of the pics. It can be very hard to get on!
Summary: Samsung sent me this monitor to replace a syncmaster 225bw since they did not have any in stock to replace it. First of all, the stand is awful. It's a round egg-shaped thing that fits into the monitor, but the force that's required to put it in can certainly damage the monitor. I was never able to get it in for over a month. Samsung tech support was not helpful about it and claimed that the stand issue was my problem.
Summary: Bought 2 of these monitors last year in September - loved them until about a month ago when they both (not at the same time) started flickering when turned on, this has progressed to one monitor not turning on, and one still flickers for about 5 minutes before it stabilizes. From research on the internet - this seems to be a semi common problem 9-10 months into owning the systems.
