SynchMaster 2243 BWT LCD Monitor

exodus31guy, Ebay
11 December 2010
  • Summary: When NewEgg quit stocking these I had to look at the secondary market for a third one to use on my desktop. This one is nice and tall with the rotation (pivot?) taking it from a widescreen to a "tallscreen". As the french knights said in Monty Python... "We've already got one... It's very nice..." BTW... Look for the BWT in the model number to be sure that you get the version that allows you to use the monitor vertically...

  • Summary: This is a great monitor for the price...I was lucky to find another one two years after I bought the first one. Side by side, they are amazing.

Real Good Monitor

M. Deschaine, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I received this Monitor over a year ago from my wife for a Birthday present. I hooked it right up and worked flawlessly out of the box. I loved the adjustable height and the other features that come with it. I didn't have any dead pixels and it still going strong after a year. The quality of this thing is good as well. I have no complaints, other than it will not do my laundry. I like to kick back with my feet up and turn the monitor since it swivels to face me.

Great value and great quality.

  • Summary: I chose this monitor because of the size and video quality -- and the price was amazing. I also liked the SyncMaster color - I looked at a lot of brands and this seemed very sharp with good color. If you can look at some of these in a store somewhere, you will quickly see the difference. But note the model number and type carefully: some brands have multiple product lines and the quality may be very different between them. It's not enough to say "Sony" or "Samsung.

Just Do It!

Sandi, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I was hesitant to buy a widescreen monitor for our five-year-old computer with its old, standard graphics card, but our previous 17" Samsung monitor, which was 5 years old and still going strong, finally became a bit too small and blurry for our aging vision. Really pleased with this monitor.

It's okay...

Jpeg, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I'm sure you can find better out there. I bought this at Costco yesterday and was pleased, for the first five minutes... So There is backlight bleeding on top and the bottom, a bit on the right and left sides... I have an older Samsung930B (not widescreen) and there is no backlight bleeding (well not enough for me to notice it and be irritated by it).

Wow - this is a bad monitor

Eric "goodadvice75", Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I have several samsung monitors. I bought this one as a replacement for a second monitor that I operate next to a 2493hm. I have two issue with this monitor. First, the colors look pale in comparison with my other samsung monitors (2253bw and 2493hm). The quality of the picture is pretty much at par with a 4 year old 19 inch dell that this monitor replaced. Second, the monitor appears to be a little smaller in comparison to my 2253bw. 22 inch should be 22 inch.

Text was blurry

H&W Investments, Amazon

  • Summary: Text was blurry. Samsung could not help on the phone and they could not find the model code in order to open a service ticket (interesting!). So, we had to send it back.

Great pivot display.

Michael Fiorino, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I love this monitor, use it as an extended desktop display with dual head video card. I have it set up vertical so I can see legal docs & full pages without using the scrole bar so much. I had to download "magic rotation" for changing screen to vertical; note-when you download this program the icon will appear in the running task bar area {lower right of screen), you must access the program by clicking there, can't run program from start menu of desktop shortcut.

Fantastic monitor!

Work user, Amazon
13 August 2009
  • Summary: After researching many different 22" monitors, I chose the Samsung 2243BWX because of Samsung's proprietary use settings (e.g., a text setting) and its ability to pivot. I had reservations after reading about uneven LCD quality in other Samsung models and after reading that the monitor had to be tilted up slightly while pivoted.
