What a let down

Nick M., Newegg
15 March 2010
  • Pros: Nice size Good refresh $299 price point was nice
  • Cons: 11 months of ownership and POOF...big yellow spot showed up out of nowhere...wife admitted she might have overs prayed while cleaning near it....then 3 weeks later multi color horizontal bars that just keep multiplying. I had hoped for a longer life span.

Looked nice, but failed in 6 weeks

Matthew M., Newegg
12 June 2009
  • Summary: One reason I moved up to a 24" monitor was to be able to have a browser and Outlook open side by side. While this can be done at max resolution, I still found the need for horizontal scroll bars more than I'd like.
  • Pros: The 2433BW is a nice monitor to look at, and I enjoyed the well-rendered display within the beautifiul glossy frame for 5 weeks.
  • Cons: At 6 weeks of ownership I had an ever-increasing number of vertical lines (as I type this, there are a dozen). Newegg stuck to its 30-day policy, and referred me to Samsung. What Samsung suggested was for me to send the monitor to NJ for repair and get it back in 2 weeks. I don't have another mon...

Not impressed...

M. Z. Wells, Amazon
10 June 2009
  • Summary: The Acer X241W that I bought a couple of years ago for approx. $300 recently crapped out on me. I thought I would "upgrade" to this Samsung. I have to say I'm not impressed. The viewing angle is atrocious. Any slight movement of your head severely effects image quality.

RMA within 2 months

Anonymous, Newegg
20 May 2009
  • Summary: I also own a 2253BW I purchased in August of '08, and I have been most pleased with it. It was interesting to pay nearly the same price for this 24" as I did for the 22" only 6 months earlier. Maybe that should have been the first clue.
  • Pros: Pretty even colors, nice finish. Was quite satisfied with it until about a week ago.
  • Cons: A pink line (which is apparently a row of dead/dying pixels) developed from top to bottom about 2" from the right edge of the screen.

Nag screen renders useless

Chris O., Newegg
9 April 2009
  • Summary: I've got a Mac; I'm stealing this one for myself.
  • Pros: Pretty screen if you run at max resolution..
  • Cons: ..but our programmers don't. At their chosen resolution of 1280xX or less, the screen blacks out after a few seconds. They want the large screen to have large fonts, not to fit more on their screens. So this monitor is useless for them.

Monitor defective upon receipt

Anthony B., Newegg

  • Pros: It looks nice at the max resolution.
  • Cons: It had a faulty lcd panel upon receipt, defective straight out of the box. Blue line down the right side. Poor quality control, RMA time.

Not getting what I paid for!!!

Jimmi H., Newegg
21 March 2009
  • Summary: I expect to get premium quality when paying premium price, Samsung should never allow any dead pixel or bleeding to pass their QC! This is a 4-month old panel that's already buzzing...WILL now have to go through the warranty hassle!
  • Pros: Very good contrast, color is true and bright (this is paired with a HIS HD4850). Design is very elegant, glossy black panel frame.
  • Cons: ***BUZZING SOUND, pretty loud*** (coming from the bottom where the vents are). Light bleeding from bottom row (all across), 2 DEAD PIXELS (one is prominently big and in the center).

Verarbeitung ausreichend - langlebigkeit Mangelhaft

Max, Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: Diesen Monitor habe ich nun genau 3 Jahre lang. Er tat mir gute Dienste und überzeugt auf den ersten Blick durch sein Design. Die Leistungsdaten können sich durchaus sehen lassen und die Farbdarstellung ist für Games, Filme, Office, Bildbearbeitung ideal.

Знал бы не покупал.

Паша, Onliner
13 March 2009
  • Summary: Дизайн не супер, но и не отстой. Яркость хорошая, а вот с цветами проблема, игры как будто в тумане. С настройками все перепробовал, пробовал все проги с диска, что шол в комплекте, так и не смог добиться красивой картинки. У соседа Philips 19 дюймов, точно так показывал, теперь и у меня такая беда.
  • Pros: Ничего примечательного. :(
  • Cons: Цвета в играх не красивые.
