Don't know what happened

  • Summary: this was my 1st LED, I have 4 LCD's and I've never had an issue with any. I love Samsung, I hope this is just one of those freak things.
  • Pros: when I got this monitor I was impressed by everything about it, great picture and speed.
  • Cons: It died out of the blue in 9 months, the back light just gave out

  • Pros: Beautiful before the issue
  • Cons: Purchased two and now owned for 3 months. One works perfectly but the other just developed a single line down the right side of the screen. One pixel in width, straight up the screen from top to bottom. It's a pinkish/purple color

Very Pleased

Robert C., Newegg

  • Summary: I have DirecTV and use software (DirecTV2PC) that lets me watch recorded DVR content on my PC. The HD picture on this monitor is very nice! I use the BX2231 to watch a game from the DVR while I do "real work" on the old monitor.
  • Pros: Picture quality; no dead pixels; ease of set up; low power consumption (LED); multiple inputs; comes with DVI to HDMI cable (and a VGA cable).
  • Cons: With provided stand, cannot change angle of screen relative to desk - this probably kept me from a 5-star rating. Also, for me, a pair of built-in, 2w speakers would have been nice - I don't listen to music that way, just want to be able to get basic output.

  • Cons: Easy to accidentally touch off monitor. No height adjustment, tilt only. No HDMI cable, but has HDMI to DVI.

Awesome Monitor

  • Summary: If you are disappointed in this monitor, you have to be picky!
  • Pros: Read the list of Specs, this is the list of Pros for this monitor (period!). This replaced a 19" Hanns G (1440x900) and the difference is night and day. I love this monitor and it was on Sale on Newegg (out the door under $160 and free shipping). The price was excellent for a 21.5" Samsung! The p...
  • Cons: buttons are easy to bump and change setting, input, etc.., but this is probably due to my setup and not really a con of the monitor.

Solid production monitors

DERICK D., Newegg
12 July 2011
  • Summary: If you're doing professional color (print, film, etc )work you shouldn't be looking at this class of monitor anyhow. Don't pay attention to the people who say the monitor doesn't tilt.. it does I have 3 of these in a triple-header setup, which is pretty nice..
  • Pros: Great color reproduction for this class of monitor... Very thin depth, thin bezel produces no discernible heat! very sharp, running 3 off of HDMI (using the included DVI to HDMI converter)...
  • Cons: a little light bleeding around the frame a low quality (difficult to accurately adjust) stand, but it does the job

  • Cons: The controls are a little funky to get used to, but it really wasn't an issue.

  • Summary: This is my first full HD monitor and I'm super impressed with the price/performance of it.

everything I expected

Wesley E., Newegg
15 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought this to replace an 8 year 17" NEC LCD. It's huge compared to my old monitor yet weighs half as much. Out of the boxed it looked very washed out but by reducing brightness and gamma and increasing contrast it looks very nice.
  • Pros: Incredibly lightweight and thin, Lots of adjustable settings, no dead pixels, no noticeable backlight bleed, LED, HDMIx2
  • Cons: not 23"
