Need to Keep the Samsung LCD's!12/4/2012
LCD's can hold a screen calibration a lot better than the LED's. Everything from Samsung has been a sure thing everytime I buy one.
Great monitor and awesome price!11/20/2012
I got this monitor for $99 refurbished. It works well and the price was unbeatable. Very bright and crisp-looking screen. Perfect for working on multiple documents and also for watching videos/movies. I am very pleased with it and would recommend it to others.
Reasonable monitor at a decent price.11/13/2012
This monitor is decent quality. I bought it for a dual desktop setup on my computer at home because I am spoiled at work and I Love it!
Product was delivered when it was suppose and works.
So far this refurbished moniter is great - great resolution and great size - excellent value for the $$$.
Arrived in good package & very easy to hook up. Is working fine.
Bought my wife one and then I thought I would like one also, really nice monitor.
Very nice picture. Upgraded from an old Dell 19" CRT monitor and wow... what a difference! Easy to install, comes with software to make any necessary adjustments.
Beautiful monitor. The exterior appearance is among the more attractive of Samsung's variants (see hideous 2233sw). Amazing picture. Deeper colors and detail than my 40" Samsung 120hz 1080p LCD TV (LN40A650). No blur or artifacts here.
Excellent for the price4/23/2012
Very nice resolution, supports VESA mounting, and no external power brick.
It is very good quality. As for the reviews that says it doesn't tilt, the display will nod up and down. I does not move side to side unless you rotate the base too. It does not turn clockwise or counterclockwise. So if you want those functions you'll need to add an appropriate VESA mount to it. Now that's all cleared up, it has great contrast, DVI, and VGA, but no HDMI or speakers.
i love this monitor. so clear and big.
Tilts Great but doesn't Swivel or Rotate1/26/2012
I've had this display for about a month. It is very good quality. As for the reviews that says it doesn't tilt, the display will nod up and down. I does not move side to side unless you rotate the base too. It does not turn clockwise or counterclockwise. So if you want those functions you'll need to add an appropriate VESA mount to it. Now that's all cleared up, it has great contrast, DVI, and VGA, but no HDMI or speakers. It has touch sensitive 'buttons' on the front, so you have to know where to touch the bezel to turn it off or on. That's Ok in a lit room, but hard to find in a dark one. Despite the buttons, I wholeheartedly recommend this product.
Great monitor for the price!11/24/2011
I bought 3 of these for my office because of the great price offered through Buy.com. An added plus to the free shipping was FedEx delivery in 2 days. I ordered on Monday and received on Wednesday. Monitors were easy to install and after a few tweaks to the settings the images are sharp and clear. Much nicer than the old 17" monitors that they replaced. I connected these monitors via the digital connection instead of the vga connection that I had always previously used. WOW. Thanks for a great deal, Buy.com!
the best monitor you can get. i bought this for my son and we hooked it up and he just loves it. its so bright. i quess that is the led's going into action. we couldnt be any happier. samsung means quality to me.without the sony high price tag. you cain't go wrong with any of their products. i own two of their tv's and am happy with them also. thanks john
Cannot tilt the screen.3/30/2011
The picture is great and would work fine for the price if you sit right in front of the screen and do not move. If you stand up or move to the side the screen has shadows. No way to adjust the tile of the unit to avoid any neck pain.
A good cheap monitor9/20/2010
At $152.99 I consider this monitor a great buy. From a performance standpoint only the contrast could be better. I didn't give the "Ease of Use" the highest rating because I first installed and then had to un-install the software that came with it before I could get everything running smoothly under Windows XP. What you lose without the software is the ability to use your mouse and keyboard to adjust the monitor settings. I'm perfectly willing to use the buttons on the monitor for this.
The picture is awesome and the price was right, I just wish there was a way to tilt the screen. But I'm satisfied. It works great as a second screen for my Macbook.
Great product for the price9/14/2010
This is a nice Monitor for the price. Sharp crisp picture. Connected right into my MacBook Pro Laptop. Just make sure to keep the power cord plugged into laptop, if you want it to work with a wireless mouse and keyboard. Would recommend to Mac users.
Great monitors, Great price!9/13/2010
Purchased 2 of these for side by side desktop computer. The monitors are great. Good clean picture. Nice style. Would suggest to anyone looking for a new LCD.
Solid HD Monitor9/13/2010
Purchased four of these monitors for my company when they were on sale at a fantastic price. All four arrived with the RMA documentation still in the boxes where they had been previously returned, so I was skeptical at first. Not a problem though, as all four were in perfect condition and not a dead pixel on any of them. The buttonless touch panel is a pretty cool feature. Additional features such as USB ports or adjustable angle/height of the base would be nice, but I am totally satisfied for the price I paid. I've never had a bad Samsung product from these monitors for the office to my Samsung LCD monitor and Samsung DLP TV at home.
Love my SyncMaster B22309/12/2010
The colors in this monitor are amazing. My favorite feature is that you have the options to have the screen resolution adjusted to fit your sitting position (standing or leaning forward or backward). It also has the capabilities for use on multiple screenings of which you can select the pixel use on each screen. Images are crystal clear. All around an excellent purchase.
Very pleased with the monitor. I had purchased and returned a 24" model because it just didn't fit the workspace. This one is perfect.
Bright, clear, great value at this price9/12/2010
A quality screen from a major manufacturer with a 3 year warranty. I use both the VGA and the DVI inputs to monitor two different computers running at the same time. Just switch the inputs from the light touch front panel button
My daughter loves it, so its gotta be good.9/7/2010
I ordered this monitor for my daughter.. She loved it so much that she asked me to please order a second one.. She uses dual monitors on her computer.. She showed me how easy it was to adjust.. I agree with her, its a great monitor, at a great price and the shipping was very fast.. We are completely satisfied and would recommend this Samsung 21.5" monitor to anyone..
I purchased the big-screen for my business. In my line of work I'm with customers all day long, and up until now I've had issues with people seeing what's on the screen. This screen is very sharp, very bright and I have received multiple comments from customers and office staff members that are jealous of this thing. You cannot go wrong with this monitor if you're looking for an upgrade. I personally think Samsung makes the best T.V.'s and monitors money can buy. The fact this screen can be purchased for under $200 is a flat-out steal of a deal.
This flat screen replaced an old style monitor that took up a lot of space, so I love all the free space I have now. The wide screen does stretch your work unless you reduce it but is perfect for split screen work. Down side is a lack of adjustability; I can't angle the screen up or down and the brightness is and issue. I've turned it down and fiddled with the controls, but it still looks a bit washed out.
This is a beautiful monitor, generously sized, and the refurbished factor is a non-factor. I've bought refurb'd electronics before and they've always been a great deal, at least in my experience. I'm really glad I bought this monitor!
Excellent monitor - high quality resolution, works great with my macbook, and looks super sharp. I'm incredibly happy with this monitor. it has a beautiful, clean, sleek design, and the black screen actually looks black! I am convinced that Samsung makes the best monitors & TV's out there! the auto brightness feature is great, and the size of the monitor and high resolution screen really gives ample space to play!
The monitor came as promised. Right out of the box it was a great performer.
Very nice oversize monitor at a great price!8/18/2010
Bought this refurbished monitor on special from Buy.com for $140. with free shipping. Found out that my dad bought the same monitor locally for $190. The controls take a minute to figure out-they are kind of twitchy. The refurbished monitor did not come with any manuals or discs. The monitor worked properly out of the box without having to install any drivers. The brightness of the monitor was overwhelming. When I figured out the controls it was better. The picture is sharp, but the brightness even turned down and the contrast turned up looks washed out. It is nice to have the oversize monitor coming from an 18 inch wide flat screen monitor. There is less scrolling for the pages I normally would look at.
