This monitor is awesome. I have had absolutely no problems with it. Brightness is great and the response time is great. Definitely worth the price.

Ok i know how everyone says that CRT is far superior to LCD for games... Let me begin to say YES that is true in most cases. I had a 21" Sony Trinitron CRT. Max supported res was 1600X1200 at 60 hertz, and the performance of it was phenominal! However so was the legroom of that beast, it took up all of my desk and weighed over 100 LBS! When that eventually broke i replaced it with a Hanns G 19" LCD with 8ms response time, that looked great for movies and pictures, but for games, it was VERY Laggy... ghosting all over the place. If you dont know what ghosting is simply take your mouse pointer and move it somewhat fast from left to right, thats how your opponents will look on the screen. Dosen't sound to great does it. With all that being said, now to the Samsung: At Twenty Two inches you may think that this may be overkill for your needs. It really isn't, its not that much bigger than a 19". Personally i think its about the perfect size, especially for gaming. This monitors color representation is EXCELLENT all colors of the sprectrum look as they should There is no ghosting, at least that i can see... Ive used it on two computers, a P4 3.0HT 3GB PC2100 Asus MoBo p5p800 NvIdia 7800GS OC 256MB and its now on a XFX 680i Sli MoBo 2GB DDR2 PC6400 Corsair Intel Core 2 Quad Duo Q6600 2.4 NvIdia 800GTX 768MB and on both computers it has worked flawlessly I recomend this thing to all my friends and it looks great with the black piano finish If i were to give this monitor a con it would be that the blue power button is too bright at night time, because it is in my bedroom, but its not like you cant just turn off the monitor instead of letting it sit in hibernation mode. All in all i give this a 10/10 Stars

Samsung PC monitor is Top Notch!

by on 1/17/2008

I researched very carefully, my final buying choices were this one and I am glad I bought the Samsung SyncMaster 226 inch. Let me say I am so greatly pleased and impressed. This is a fantastic monitor. This monitor is AWESOME!! The color quality is amazing; it's lightweight and works perfectly. You also can't beat the price for the size of the monitor and the fact that it's a LCD flat screen the picture is truly just outstanding, straight out of the box. I can set at my desk and lean-back a good 4 feet and read everything on the screen as though I am 2 feet away. I have had the set now for three weeks and I have no complaints at all. You can hook your computer up to this monitor, it does everything that it is designed to do very well. I think Samsung has come up with a wonderful set, and balanced features very well with price and performance.
