Horrible color + light bleeding

David K., Newegg
29 December 2008
  • Summary: $159, you get what you pay for. Again you aren't going to find a 22" 2ms LCD monitor for close to that price yet. Just do some research and Google the problems with this monitor as far as color.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. I got it for $159 w/ rebate and I don't think you can get a 22" widescreen for anything close. **READ CONS BEFORE BUYING**
  • Cons: I'm a professional photographer and had read all the great reviews on this monitor. Picked it up for a secondary monitor to edit photos on. BIG MISTAKE. The software that comes with the monitor to calibrate the color is trash. It's impossible to get anything close to realistic. This probably won'...

Horrible Color + Light Bleed

David K., Newegg
29 December 2008
  • Summary: For $159, I don't think I'd get anything better. The monitor feels nice, looks sleek, and functions as a monitor but I wish I had found the reviews about the color problems. I'm a professional photographer and bought this in the hopes to edit photos on it. Oops. Learned my lesson.
  • Pros: Samsung monitors (from what I understand) are generally quality products. I picked this up for $159 after rebate. READ CONS
  • Cons: * TERRIBLE COLOR * LIGHT BLEEDING ON EDGES The color on this monitor is horrible. There is very limited manual controls as far as adjustments and the calibration software they give you is practically useless. Google this monitor and read up on the color calibration issues. If you are only using t...

humming noise

Anonymous, Newegg
10 December 2008
  • Summary: Great monitor for the price, especially if I get that rebate, but not exactly top quality that I expected from samsung.
  • Pros: Cheap, looks really nice, great picture.
  • Cons: Way more backlight bleeding around the corners than I expected. Annoying humming noise when you turn the brightness down to below 75. I assume most people won't use below 75 but why make the product like this especially when you include presets that make the monitor hum like a radiator.

Lots of small problems, nothing major

P. Dyer, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm comparing this to a 20 inch Belinea and a 24 inch samsung monitor I also have. I got this one for University because it was fairly cheap for what it is. There's no image lag that I can see and it's fine for desktop work.

Not ideal for photo editing

G. D. Milne, Amazon
12 March 2008
  • Summary: When I first used this monitor I agreed with all the other reviewers. It seemed great: sharp, fantastic colours. However I soon noticed that the brightness of the image depended on its vertical position on the screen.

Passt

Dr. Martin von der Grün, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: Verpackung war völlig ausreichend. Bei der Optik musste ich mit vielen Brillenputztüchern noch etwas nacharbeiten, v. a. in den Ecken und Kanten waren Spuren des Vorbesitzers. Andere hätte dies wohl sehr gestört. Mich nicht besonders, als ich das Ding sauber hatte, sah es gleich fast aus wie neu.

  • Excerpt: Отличный монитор, свою цену он отработал с полна!
  • Pros: Служит уже более 3 лет. Очень радует диагональ и разрешение.
  • Cons: После покупки через 3 месяца полетела какая то плата. Наладили, но видимо не до конца. В некоторых играх он переливается радугой и не показывает изображение. Сейчас же цвета не так уже радуют, кнопка выключения питания переключает выходы. Очень сильно видна пыль, брызги и т.д.

  • Excerpt: Поменялись с другом на неделю мониками, т.к. этот отказывался работать с его системным блоком.. Скажу, что мой Viewsonic VX2025wm в разы лучше по всем параметрам.
  • Pros: 1) Возможность регулировки интенсивности подсветки кнопки включения/выключения. ; 2) Цветопередача норм при должной настройке.
  • Cons: 1) При диагонали в 22", разрешение 1680x1050 - в играх снизу и сверху образуются чёрные полосы, чтобы изображение соответствовало пропорциям. ; 2) Слишком тонкая ножка, которая соединяет штатив и сам монитор - чуть-чуть задеть - и он раскачивается как осиновый лист на ветру. ; 3) Ужасные углы обз...

  • Summary: Certes, il est beau (il a gagné le prix du meilleur design à l'IFA 2007) et rapide, mais à cause de la polémique autour de cet écran avec ses dalles différentes affichant des couleurs plus ou moins bonnes il vaut pour moi 3 étoiles ! Mais pourquoi ? L'attitude de Samsung face au problème.
  • Pros: Beau, rapide
  • Cons: Couleur, la polémique autour de cette écran, son pied
