samsung 21.6" LCD

Jian Y., Newegg
20 September 2008
  • Pros: picture looks good
  • Cons: one dead pixel when the LCD is right out of the box with power turned on, quality is no good, also learned I have to pay for the shipment to get replaced with newegg.com, will live with this dead pixel, most of time, it is not noticable

Decent only

Cheuk H., Newegg
18 September 2008
  • Summary: For 249 is a great deal. But dont' expect it to be a CRT or a work place LCD.
  • Pros: Nice size, Excellent Price, text is very clear. Seem very well made, doesn't seem cheap.
  • Cons: Extremly hard to deal with the menu. The magic color is a waste of time. Way to bright, need some time adjusting the colors. I am still working on mines.

Beautiful Picture

Larry L., Newegg
30 August 2008
  • Summary: It's an expensive VGA LCD for me, because the DVI doesn' work.
  • Pros: This LCD has a beautiful picture and it came with NO dead pixels! I'm happy about that! I would have given it 5 stars but my DVI won't work, only analog. I have the nVidia 9600GT video card and it works fine with my wife's 22 in Dell LCD.
  • Cons: DVI (digital signal) doesn't work with nVidia 9600GT video card, only analog VGA. Actually, this LCD won't pick up DVI with my other nVidia cards neither. Bummer!

great screen one issue though

Kim I., Newegg
21 June 2008
  • Summary: Gonna take it back to store and try a third one i guess....
  • Pros: Great screen colors are amazing size is great.
  • Cons: Been through two with a red stuck pixel really sucks but at least on the second its near the edge of the screen so its not a big deal gaming or movie watching though. Tried everything still hasn't fixed it :/ Didn't buy them from newegg however.

Where is the Samsung quality I've come to trust?

Jeremy B., Newegg
30 May 2008
  • Summary: I've owned multiple Samsung LCDs in the past, and the 2253LW model just doesn't seem to be the standard of quality that I normally expect from Samsung. As much as I <3 Newegg, I will not buy another LCD without first seeing it in person.
  • Pros: The picture is clear, the backlight is bright, and I like the styling of the bezel.
  • Cons: It has a single stuck pixel in the upper center of the screen. I've run Pixel Fixer, JScreenFix, as well as a handful of other similar utilities and nothing helps.

  • Summary: I wish I bought a monitor with a zero-tolerance dead pixel policy.
  • Pros: Bright, no light leak, clear, decently priced.
  • Cons: I had a dead pixel, and the viewing angle was worse than my 19" HP monitor.

I expected more

Anonymous, Newegg
12 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this from another website and I'm currently working on an RMA, if not for the pixel, then at least for the crack. Hopefully mine was just defective. I cant see spending this much money for anything new that isn't less than perfect.
  • Pros: Great contrast, brightness and design (overall). Picture quality was much better than most other LCDs I looked at. Its awesome how you can change the screen to 4:3 ratios in old games and they still work fine (no stretching!). 2ms Grey to Grey response is nice too.
  • Cons: Mine had one dead (not stuck) pixel near the center of the screen that wont go away. It is so annoying. Also, although the packaging was flawless, there was a slight crack at the top left of the screen's bezel which is noticeable all the more because its glossy.

Ungenügende Produktbeschreibung

M. Overath, Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: Die Beschreibung ist absolut unzureichend. Kann der Monitor bei abweichenden Auflösungen schwarze Balken anzeigen? Wenn nicht, wird das Bild bei nicht genau passender Grafikkarte unscharf. Stromaufnahme? Anschlüsse? Bei so wenigen Infos ist ein Fehlkauf wahrscheinlich.

Tolle Papierform, aber nicht perfekt.

N. Ziegeler, Amazon
16 September 2008
  • Summary: Ich besitze seit Jahren einen Samsung TFT und war immer zufrieden. Jetzt musste ein zweiter TFT her. Der 2253LW hat tolle Werte ( 2ms, 8000:1, DVI) und beim Preis von nur 199 Euro konnte ich nicht an diesem Gerät vorbeigehen. Die Ernüchterung lies nicht lange auf sich warten.
