5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Clarity

Pros: Amazing monitor, super clear, bright and crisp. Games look great (with a decent vid card) and movies are as good as they can be on a screen smaller than 52 inches! No dead pixels. What else can you ask for in a monitor?

Cons: If there are any, it's the lack of USB ports.

4 out of 5 eggsOK monitor, not great

Pros: Very bright and vibrant picture (slight adjustment is almost necessary to tone it down);

Color reproduction is very good but this brings up a Con as well;

Very classy design (probably the biggest PRO about this!) / shiny piano-black finish complements any environment with style.

Big picture with decent viewing angles for price.

Cons: #1 CON relates to one of its PROs: color reproduction is good but it changes drastically througout the screen! Images viewed at the top 1/4 of the screen have 50% more color depth than at the bottom 1/4. A solid colored screen can change from that color to almost being washed out at the bottom. Much cheaper screens don't do this! Not impressed!

#2: Light bleeding: I won't use this one against the monitor that I have NOW. But I had to send my first one back to Newegg. The first one was terrible. Highly concentrated areas of light bleeding all around the top, bottom, left and right edges. My advice if you see this, RMA and SEND IT BACK!

#3 CON: I hate hearing the comment "dust magnet", this is actually a beautiful glossy screen that I can expect to attract dust. I'll take one over the other. BUT the whole setup is extremely flimsy and rocks back and forth at the slightest touch or desk movement. It feels cheap and Samsung needs to redo the stand/swivel!

Other Thoughts: I buy Samsung products for the picture quality vs. price ratio: for the most part you can expect it to be the highest with Samsung.
I gave the 2253BW a VERY VERY generous 4 stars. My official rating is a 3 on the picture and I was honestly pushed an extra .5 for design appeal (not overall design quality!) This thing looks high-class! It is a showpiece in any room and is honestly the best thing I can say about it.
The overall picture quality is not great. There are defined color, tone and light differences throughout the whole screen. Colors change and lose tone depending on where you look and I understand its an LCD. I've owned/seen many of these without these issues.
Aside from it having a very stylish look, the whole stand/swivel design is cheap and flimsy. Im looking for a way to alter it myself to keep it from rocking so much. Not impressed!
Overall for the price, you're getting a half-decent monitor. Again, my 4 star rating is probably too generous so research before buying!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: I have tow of these that I am extremely happy with. I'm ready to buy my third. Just a godd, well-performing monitor for a fair price.

Cons: Height and swivel adjustment, but I knew that going in. If I really need these, I can buy an aftermarket stand.

Other Thoughts: As I said, I'm here to buy athird. I think that says it all!!

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: This is one of the best monitors I've ever owned. It's big enough, the quality is super clear, the look is fantastic. There are absolutely no complaints as to how this monitor performs.

Cons: I know wall-mounts are a little expensive, but I would have seriously rathered this thing come with one. The plasic base and support rod are attached via a metal brace, but the monitor can not adjust, and because my desk is a tiny one, on wheels, on a hardwood floor.. any slight impact on the desk makes the monitor wobble like a bobblehead.

5 out of 5 eggs22" of pure pleasure

Pros: It's large, it's crystal clear and took 30 seconds to assemble (no joke). The recommended viewing size of 1680 by 1050 is definitely the best choice, it's simple amazing. Leaps and bounds over my older 17 inch.

Cons: Not so much a con as it was an annoyance. The buttons (power, menu, etc.) are behind the clear plastic at the bottom so it took me a second to recognize where they were.

Other Thoughts: It looks better than my 26 inch 1080p TV.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Nice

Pros: 22" monitor that is beautiful.

little light bleeding aka, blacks look black not grey. You will see it a little bit when you first turn it on, or at the beginning of a movie, but the picture quality is amazing.

i actually like the buttons on the bottom of the screen, they are out of the way, and you really do get used to it. it took me a little while to get the settings jussst right but once they are in, no worries! it rembers even if you lose power.

games, movies, pictures, etc look amazing on thisone. 1680x1050 is niice (especially if you can run crysis on max settings at that resolution, i can it is sweet)

i am buying another one so that i can use my TV tuner card to watch TV while playing games. (dont worry i cant play crysis and watch tv, my computer would die)

Cons: Well, it says that it is 2ms but that is for grey to grey only. otherwise it is 5ms...which is still pretty good.

the stand is not as cheep as they say it is, but then again, its a monitor when are you ever going to have to adjust it once it is in position? unless your whole room rotates and you have to constantly have to adjust for glare then you wont ever notice that it is 'flimsey'.

but seriously, it holds the monitor in position well and makes it look sexy.

Other Thoughts: cant wait to get an other one! and yes i have to get the same exact one that i have because they have to match.

but, if you have the money...definatly go for the 2233RZ.

that thing is the future, but i dont have the money to buy 2 of them for dual monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsToo expensive for what you get

Pros: Nice finish, bright, HDCP support

Cons: OK, people are not going to like me for this, but, by comparison there is absolutely no reason to spend this much money on this monitor. I've owned it for almost a year, in the meantime, I have built several computers for others and went with a ACER X223Wbd for them. To be honest, the wife and I both thought the ACER looked better. It's enough to really torque you off to see that a monitor that cost about $100.00 less looks slightly better.

Other Thoughts: I meant to post this review several months ago, but i just kept forgetting. Understand, I am not saying this is a bad monitor or there are things wrong with it. It's just nonsense to pay this much for it when there are...better monitor's out there for WAY less.
