Continuing Problems

John N., Newegg

  • Summary: Awful experience. Going back to Acer and Asus monitlrs.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: The last three days have been very fustrating. This Samsung monitor continues to black out. I bumped the montiro with its remote and the screen went blank. Sometimes I can recycle the power but who should have to do that for a monitor costing almost 250.00? I really hate to pack this up and pay f...

User Review

  • Summary: Buyer Beware
  • Pros: By purchasing this unit I have come to realize that Samsung will not stand behind their products in an effective manner. Therefore the "pro" is that it has convinced me to search for a more reputable manufacturer.
  • Cons: This product was placed into use 02/12/2011 and as of 05/12/2011 is no longer working. I have several of these units which I have mounted in my dental office. While it may suggest it is VESA 75x75 compliant let me share with you my experience. There isn't a bolt you can find that will fit these u...

  • Pros: Nice bright sharp picture.
  • Cons: Samsung monitor will not last long. Often require more than one repair. Screen flickering, or totally dark, or just on for a second. once warranty is out, you are out of luck.

not mountable

Anonymous, Newegg
15 December 2010
  • Pros: N/A - not yet mounted
  • Cons: Despite being advertised as VESA 75x75 mountable this monitor requires a 'kit' from Samsung for VESA mounting. There are holes present on the back of the monitor but they are not threaded. I've contacted VESA and Samsung. Samsung's response was mediocre at best, they're mailing me a kit after for...

Don't waste your money

Jeffrey W., Newegg

  • Summary: If you're going to mount it on the wall, don't make the mistake of mounting it on the stand to test it. You'll never get the stand off without damage. Not much else I can add other than I'm really sorry I purchased this TV/Monitor.
  • Pros: It arrived.
  • Cons: Picture is significantly less than what you'd desire. My efforts to reset and improve just seem to make it worse. And there's no way to return it to the factory setting. I'm also tremendously bothered by lengthy delay after hitting the on button. And, the speakers are terrible. The menu is also e...

Samsung B2230HD - poor ergonomics and sound

Danny, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this TV for my aged mother. As she is hard of hearing, she needs an easy way of switching subtitles on and off. So I deliberately sought out a TV with a remote which has a dedicated Subtitles button, like this one has.
