Summary: I bought this monitor as Best Buy in 2012 for $189. This was pretty much the going price for comparable monitors at this store and other stores as well. The price listed here ( 289.99) seems severely inflated for a monitor of this type. Go check out prices for similar ones on Newegg. The quality of this particular product is just decent, nothing exceptional. One thing to note: the built-in speakers hiss.
Summary: I bought this monitor in 2012 at BestBuy.com for $200 and its ok, the picture quality is great but the internal speakers are awful but that's not the worst part, in order to change the volume you have to go through like 3 menus before you get to adjust the volume so I ended up hooking up my old external speakers and used them, sometimes when I go to turn the monitor on it wont turn on unless you touch the menu button instead of the power button, I have to unplug it then...
Samsung S23B550VS, Good screen, not so good integrated speakers
2 October 2012
Summary: I like the screen, just bought it today. Picture quality is good and controls are easy to use. It looks nice and easy to assemble. MHL is cool if you do have a device that supports it. My main problem is the speakers, they are not so bad when you play music or watch a movie, however once the audio cable or HDMI are used there is a a constant buzzing noise, not very loud but noticeable enough.
Summary: Excelente imagem e ajustes que permitem uma customização ao gosto do usuário alem de um design muito bonito. Infelizmente as qualidades da imagem ficam comprometidas pela falta de regulagem da inclinação da tela pois a base é fixa, algo inconcebível em um monitor para computador.
