Summary: I replaced a 19 inch non-wide screen flat panel with this monitor. I am not going to write a bunch of technical stuff here, one: I don't understand that stuff and 2: I suspect most people reading this don't either. I will say that set up was very good, though I suspect there are some issues with some of the software and Vista compatibility. It was not hard to figure it out. The picture is very good, no dead pixels that I can see and the colors are very good.
Summary: I bought this monitor for video gaming, and it is performing very well for that. The screen is bright and the colors are vivid and well-balanced. I had no dead pixels and no problem with light bleed-through. On-screen adjustments are simple and it is easy to match the brightness and contrast of the screen to a changing environment. There is no visible ghosting and the fine detail makes video games more immersive.
Summary: I bought this monitor at CompUSA. It's almost perfect, but I have three gripes about it: 1. The stand on my monitor isn't quite straight, making the monitor unlevel. That is, it's rotated slightly counter-clockwise. I couldn't see any way to adjust the stand or take it apart, so I just put some paper underneath the left side of the stand.... 2.
Summary: One of the crazes of 2006-2007 seems to be monitors, and many people seem to get specs-crazy. For good reason though - who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a piece of bad hardware? I'll attempt to cover most of the major topics people are worried about. Panel Technology: Definitely a TN Panel. At the time of this review, most 22" panels are manufactured by Chimei, which I believe is a Taiwanese company.
Summary: I replaced a Hyundai L90D+ with this monitor. After staring at a 4:3 monitor for a couple of years, it's going to take some time to get used to the additional real estate provide by this LCD. Beyond that, it came with cables (DVI *and* analog), and most important of all, a height-adjustable stand which is the primary reason I selected this monitor over all of the other 22-inchers. Out of the box, no stuck or dead pixels at all.
Summary: I have been looking to buy the 225BW for over 6 months and finally the price comes down under 300. The picture quality is good, the 3 years warranty is nice, the height adjustable stand is a big-plus. For this price I think it is the best choice among all 22" LCD monitor on market. I owned other Samsung CRT monitors and they are good quality and last a long time.
Summary: The monitor is beautifull, its image its very clear, 5 ms of response! 22" widescreen its enough to feel confortable when you are working with multiple windows opened at the same time. The price its razonable, no dead pixels, excellent product.
Summary: I just got this monitor during the Thanksgiving frenzy and purchased it on a whim (for 299$) without checking any reviews before. I have been using different Samsung 15" and 19" Monitors so far and always have been thrilled about their quality and image display. The first thing I noticed when Windows boots up, was same backlight bleeding on the top and bottom of the display frame, i.e. it was not totally black as it should be.
Beautiful image display, a little light on features

Summary: I have had this monitor about a week now and love the way the display looks. It is bright, even, and beautiful. I am using it with my G4 PowerBook (with the lid closed and an external keyboard & mouse). It even came with the right cable. The PowerBook scaled to the monitor's native resolution flawlessly, and now I feel like I got a new computer! For such a large monitor, the price was fantastic.
