Another one bites the dust

SEN, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I've had a Samsung 206BW which I've used lightly (on weekends mainly) for some time; just as my Samsung 226BW which died, this one is starting to exhibit the same problems: starts flickering when turned on, eventually stabilizes, but at some point it will completely die.

Still going strong after 6 years

Timothy J., Newegg
11 August 2013
  • Summary: Great display for its time and still very usable even now. I see that many others haven't had as much luck as I have in terms of longevity, but I guess that's normal in the world of electronics.
  • Pros: Great size, resolution, color, and finish. Bought this in early 2007 and haven't had a single issue with it since.
  • Cons: Obviously the viewing angles aren't up to modern standards, but used as a single display for typical home use, viewing angle is not really much of a concern. However, you really have to be directly in front of it to avoid color shifting on the horizontal extremeties, so I'm looking forward to an ...

Flashing off and on

David K., Newegg
4 April 2013
  • Summary: I really can't complain - the monitor lasted longer than most here... about 5 years. But, just like everyone else, it's been flashing on and off and I'm now looking for a replacement.
  • Pros: Good monitor
  • Cons: Flashing on and off seems to be an issue with this model

5 Years Later...

Jeremy T., Newegg
15 December 2012
  • Pros: Samsung Makes some of the best screens and TV's I've ever seen. This monitor is five years old now, and still delivers the same high quality picture as the day I bought it!
  • Cons: Sadly, this model is discontinued. Nothing good lasts forever.

Failed after 3 years.

Brendan M., Newegg
18 November 2011
  • Summary: I probably got my moneys worth over time, but a year or two more would have been expected.
  • Pros: Looked great, no dead pixels, fine for gaming, sturdy.
  • Cons: Died after 3 years. Similar to a few other posts I have seen on here, it turns on and off rapidly. I am on newegg right now to purchase a new monitor. The screen was also easily scratched, although I am not sure if this is a problem prone to just this type of LCD or all LCDs; either way it was a ...

Failed on me after 3 years

Ankur K., Newegg
5 February 2011
  • Pros: Good monitor, clean, crisp.
  • Cons: Failed on me after 3 years. The monitor flickers on and off and never ceases to stop, it is not the graphics card because I unplugged the DVI cable and just turned on the monitor by itself and it continues to flicker on and off with nothing except the power plugged into it. I'm very unsatisfied w...

Wonderful! Samsung SyncMaster 206BW 20" LCD Monitor

C. Catarov "CTC", Amazon
13 June 2008
  • Summary: I recently purchased (2) of these montiors for my home office and I have really enjoyed their quality and performance. They were purchased as well for a terrific price, compared to 'many, many' other monitors on the market with less quality. I would highly recommend this montior to anyone!
