Good product, not the best but good quality for the price.

  • Summary: It is a good LCD monitor however I have had a few that the CCFL lamps degrade rather quickly (giving a off white color for white). This is common with any backlit system when using CCFL, and I do use the monitors quite a lot. Overall it is a good Samsung product.

Own 2 225bw...sent this back

javajunki, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a Samsung 225bw a couple years ago and needed a 2nd monitor so opted for this thinking it would be the same if not better. What a let-down. Picture was totally inferior, major bleeding...had to send it back. Ended up finding a refurb on the 225 and purchased a second from that instead. Disappointing compared to the Samsung 225BW which is an exceptional monitor.

Great colors, awful blacks... mixed bag

Claudio D'Amato, Amazon
8 March 2009
  • Summary: GENERAL This is an excellent monitor with bright, vivid colors and snappy performance. No hint of ghosting with games (of course, given its low response time). It does suffer from defects that plague nearly all LCDs, such as poor black level performance and some light bleeding. BLACK LEVELS In my unit, light bleeding was particularly bad on top and bottom. As for black level performance, even after calibration it was quite poor.

Gawdawful customer service!

M. B. Berberich "Cranky Liberal", Amazon

  • Summary: A fine monitor which is most difficult to assemble. Try as I might, I could NOT get the ball on the stand to enter the socket on the monitor using the Samsung instructions. I'm 6'2" and weigh 200 and am no wimp. Using all my strength was not enough. I contacted Samsung customer service and was told to use soapy water. It didn't work. I called again and Samsung agreed to send a new base. When it never arrived I began procedures to send it back.

Beautiful Monitor for My New Dell XPS

Hurricane "Home of the U", Amazon

  • Summary: Samsung has surpassed Sony in the monitor/TV wars; and we are seeing quality products from both teams. I ordered the 22 inch monitor in with a piano black finish. The Samsung arrived with not a single dead pixel, and the color/resolution was striking. Software set-up and configuration was easy, and their web site is well designed to secure driver downloads.

Great Value and Image Quality

Eric Anderson-Zych, Amazon
21 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a great monitor for everyday use including web browsing, word processing, spreadsheet work, and watching videos. Watching a DVD on the computer produces video quality similar to watching on a conventional TV. Set-up and installation were easy with Samsung's instructions clearly written and well-illustrated. My only complaint with the monitor is a hum from the power adapter built in the monitor. When there is little surrounding noise I can hear it.

Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW 22-inch LCD Monitor

maninblue, Rate it all!
10 December 2008
  • Summary: I've always been a proud owner and religious buyer of Viewsonic monitors. After good experience with a Samsung plasma television, I decided to try a monitor as well. Im definitely happy with the image quality of the 2253BW in all aspects. I am a gamer and a student and I like to watch movies on my computer so it gets a lot of use in a wide variety of applications. The images are fast, dont streak or blur, and the colors are true and vivid.
