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: 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.
Summary: Every once in a while, something works out just perfectly. I bought this monitor for my daughter, who lives in a different part of the country. (This in itself was an achievement because it is sometimes difficult to find a vendor who will ship to an address other than the billing address on the credit card. Thank you, Amazon.) The name of the vendor, FactoryDepot, implies "refurbed" to me but this item was described as new and we have no reason to believe that it isn't.
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.
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.
Summary: I chose the Samsung SyncMaster 2243 BWX 22" black monitor after researching dozens of highly rated monitors. My old monitor was a 50 pound, 20 inch x 20 inch Optiquest monitor (great for its time). The Samsung monitor responded very well to my Dell Dimension 4300 analog, windows XP desktop. I now have working space on my desk. This was a quantum leap for sure. Samsung 2243 came with three other cables: d-sub, dvi-d and audio.
