Summary: After over 3 years of good use, and now past warranty, this monitor now has an annoying flicker that lasts about 5 minutes after startup. While it is flickering, it is unusable. This condition does go away, but every day when I start my computer, the flicker lasts a little longer.

Summary: I urge people to read this review and post what versions of the 226BW they are receiving from Amazon... as well as anyone who has posted recently, please edit your review and post your panel version.
Summary: First off I would like to say that there are 2 versions on this monitor. There is the "S" panel and the "A" panel. To be blunt, the S panel seems to be superior as it has less backlight bleeding.
Summary: This monitor has a great appearance. The screen is bright and sharp, colors are vivid, and there are no flickering or dead pixels--even with an analog signal. I bought the monitor to use in the office with my four-year-old IBM T40 for general computer use--surfing the web, email, documents, and...

Summary: Like any purchase of considerable value, I went over a fair number of reviews before committing to a purchase, Suffice to say this is my second Samsung 22" monitor as I need multiple screens for my kind of work.
Summary: I bought this monitor from my local Fry's in Decemeber 2007. It was on sale for $270 and the picture in store was great. For that price, I couldn't pass it up. However, it took me longer than normal to setup the colors properly - everything seemed to have a blue tint to it.
Summary: A monitor at this size is a great price. However alot of the light leaks past when the screen is supposed to be "black," a minor thing, but gets to be annoying when your watching movies or podcasts. Also the color support will not suffice for photoshop type work.
Summary: Love this monitor so much that I bought two - one for my home office and one for my work office! Many of my colleagues have this monitor. It has great resolution, contrast, brightness, etc. Everything you could want
Summary: I bought this monitor new eight months ago. It performed well until recently. . .colors went off. . .blacks were not deep and rich and it would not produce a good rich brown. The monitor has a three year parts and labor warranty.
Summary: I have owned this monitor for 2 months and use it heavily for a mix of: software development, technical graphics, writing, Web surfing and games (a good mix of different text and graphics functions). Good: - Text, even small text is crisp and easy to read. - Black level is excellent.
