used monitor a great surprise.
9 July 2012
Summary: I purchased this from a reputable dealer as used. Hoping for a fair monitor, due to the price. Wow it was a great buy. Monitor simple and sleek and full of features. It has added superb dimension to my computing experience. If you buy a Samsung you will be impressed.
Summary: I am using this monitor with my 17" MacBook Pro for my graphic design and it is a great match - big clean and the detail is beautiful @ 1920x1200. I have moved up from a 21" screen to this 24" and I thought is would seem much bigger, but it is not drastically bigger so it an easy adjustment. I bought mine as a refurb in great condition for $179, so for the price you can't go wrong with this monitor considering the quality.
Summary: I was a little hesitant to order this monitor because it was refurbished. I decided to give it a try because I wanted the higher resolution this monitor offers compared to most of the new 24" models. The price was great as well. I ended up ordering two of these. They arrived fairly quickly, packed well, and they looked great out of the box. I plugged them in and turned them on and they looked beautiful. No dead pixels and everything crystal clear.
Summary: This is my second 2433BW. The picture quality is great and works well for gaming. Since the one I just got was refurbished, the case and frame are scratched pretty bad. I'm not sure how someone could do this, but since the LCD is fine, I'm Ok with it. Older 2433BWs do not have the "BW" on the front of the monitor on the upper left - but the model number should say 2433BW on the back. The newer ones do. Hence my confusion when I got an older refurbished one.
Summary: The Samsung 2433BW monitor seems to be perfect. It has the correct aspect ratio for a monitor-- 16 to 10-- so that I can make full use of its 24 inch screen, no black bars at each end. I had previously returned a monitor that had the aspect ratio for TV-- 16 to 9-- and had to use it as a 22 inch monitor, black bars at the ends and the screen only 12 inches high instead of the correct 13 inches.
Summary: I've been really happy with this monitor. I've had it for a few weeks and I'm still glad that I bought it. It's plenty bright to be used for a day of coding, I can't speak for its use as a gaming monitor. If your priorities are resolution and general clarity/brightness and you don't need an HDMI port (this has one analog and one DVI port) then this is probably a great monitor for you.
