Summary: I bought this monitor to serve quite a few purposes - a monitor for my PC, as well as my Macbook Pro, and as a TV for my Xbox 360, PS2 and PS3. I was astonished at this monitor's plethora of connections, which mean I can have my PS3, X360, PC and PS2 all connected at once. Here we come to my first minor gripe - the monitor only has the one HDMI connection, so I can't have my Mac and my PS3 connected at the same time and without an HDMI switcher box, I have to keep...
Summary: Stunning looking TV, love the finish on it. Very easy to setup and picture is amazing. Few negatives though. 1. The stand isn't adjustable at all. At least not on the up/down angle. My desk is slightly low down and I've had to prompt the tv up quite alot because I can't tilt it upwards. 2. The sound is really quite poor, very tinny. I have a 40" version of the same TV downstairs and the difference is huge.
Samsung Syncmaster P2270HD: Clear picture, doesn't take up too much space
17 August 2011
Summary: This TV is great if you want a HD television, though only have a limited amount of space to keep it in, perhaps in the bedroom. It boasts great picture, even when not using for HD, the picture is really very clear. It is great for people who do not know much about televisions (like me) as I found it easy enough to set up, nothing really to have to have much electronical knowledge to do.
Summary: this tv was an excelent purchase wish i had got it sooner. got my pc pluged in and at the press of a lit LED i can switch to TV. had it for over 5 months now and the quality is very good and sharp. good purchase for a small room like bedroom.
Summary: I bought this primarily as a a monitor for the xbox 360, with the option to have other inputs in the future. I will only be reviewing the Xbox functionality here. After a lot of experimentation I can definitely say it works best if you connect via the VGA connector. (the one that has a computer monitor connector and two phono plugs)...I used a phono to mini jack adaptor to input the sound to the TV, these are very cheap to buy.
Summary: I bought this principally as a monitor for my 13"unibody Macbook. Chose it in preference to an LG which claimed also to be dual purpose since the Samsung has a DVI port as well as HDMI. First connected the Mac miniDisplayPort (MDP) to HDMI, but wasted a lot of time with different resolutions; screen either had black areas on either side (which defeated the object of getting a wider screen, to display 2 documents side by side without overlap) or one of the toolbars was...
Summary: I searched for ages on the internet for a television that suited my needs, and this is the one I came up with. One of the features that I really love is the fact that you can turn it off on the monitor, and not have to leave it on standby like most other tvs these days. I also love the way you use a sensor pad on the front for the controls. Although the picture is brilliant, I can't really judge it properly as I have cable tv, which means the picture is good anyway.
Summary: I've had a small resolution for a long time and I wanted some bigger without having to spend a lot of money. After a week of research I decided to buy this monitor and I'm glad I did. It is very good for me. I bought it for games, but now as I don't play it is still very useful for me. Despite the fact it is was of the cheapest monitores, my eyes don't hurt. The setup was easy and I started using it within two hours from buying.
Summary: This is just the ticket as a monitor/tv. The buttons are a bit Krypton factor for those of us that don't read manuals :) The only problem I has was getting it to display PC(vga) at 1920x1080. I tried several different PCs(laptops and desktops) with completely different graphics cards. It would do 1680x1050 fine but not native 1920x1080, where the picture would look like it had been shrunk and then horizontally sliced and shunted around.
