4 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: Its an all around good monitor with a fair amount of options.

Cons: - While it has built in speakers unless you are mounting this to the wall I don't see the point of you actually using them unless you're on a budget and don't play on buying speakers for your computer.

- Kind of hard to find which button is which in the dark since none of the touch buttons on the bottom right of the screen have any texture or lights to signify what each of them are.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a good solid monitor but it loses an egg simply because the touch controls on the bottom right are a pain if you're trying to adjust something in a dark room.

3 out of 5 eggsDead Pixel

Pros: It's a pretty decent monitor for it's price. got it for around 190 or something. ok colors and a good response time.

Cons: Dead pixel out of the box. didn't bother me at first but after about 2 months it's really irritating me. I looked up the samsung pixel policy and it seems pretty unclear to me. It's only 1 pixel, but it seems like I am not going to get a replacement or my money back.

Other Thoughts: Monitor is ok. Dead pixel policy may make me stray from samsung in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsA great upgrade

Pros: -Great contrast, deep blacks
-Great colors, very rich
-Having speakers is a nice touch, they aren't great, but having them is a nice gesture
-VESA mounts! the lower end B300 monitors lack VESA mounts
-2x HDMI and allows for multiple inputs (I have 1 xbox, and 1 pc connected and I can easily switch)

Cons: -Touch controls can be finicky
-Speakers lack any real depth and bass
-Despite what Newegg lists this DOES NOT come with a HDMI cable, but a MHL cable for connecting a samsung phone to the monitor

Other Thoughts: Before getting this monitor I was using a 23' Samsung B300 monitor and now I use them both. I thought the B300 was a great monitor but compared to this one there is no competition. Blacker blacks, faster response, better contrast. Highly recommended. I will definitely be picking 2 more up for eyefinity.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor for a Great Price

Pros: I received this monitor in just one day! Another great shipping experience from Newegg. One of the best aspects of this monitor was the price. I picked it up for $189.99 and received a $30.00 gift card. I can't say I would have purchased otherwise. This monitor will be going to my wife for when she works at home and it is more than enough for what she needs. Other reviews have claimed the speakers are abysmal, but I was quite shocked at how well they actually worked. If you think they will replace your stereo or external speakers than yes you will be disappointed but if you just want to listen to music or watch a youtube video they will do just fine.

Cons: I wish they would create a thin bezel on their monitors, hopefully the begin to do this it makes using multiple monitors a more pleasant experience.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good, Almost Great

Pros: Great Display, 2ms, Two HDMI ports, Good Menu, Nice Looking

Cons: Speakers (See Other Thoughts), No Display Port

Other Thoughts: So far I am extremely happy with this monitor. The samsung display and comes with a great user interface that allows customization which makes various viewing angles possible.

The speakers are not great, that being said, the fact that this monitor has them at all is a nice bonus.

I recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a small media center setup, or a slightly large gaming setup.

4 out of 5 eggsSomething to be aware of

Pros: Looks sleek and is a nice size monitor to work on. After using a 15" laptop screen for 4 years a 23" is a new standard for me and I don't think I would ever do smaller than that again.

Cons: Speakers, I'm not sure who the on board speakers are supposed to be marketed towards but would anyone really expect these to be any good?

Other Thoughts: I bought this unit because I was moving back form laptop to desktop. My laptop was an Alienware M15X with HDMI port. I could never get the colors exactly right while this monitor was plugged into the laptop. There was always too much blue and the oranges seemed a washed out Yellow. Since building my new machine the colors have been spot on. It's worth noting my previous laptop was not true HD.

2 out of 5 eggsSo-so monitor at a fair price

Pros: 2 HDMI inputs, MHL cable included, 1080 res, speakers (which sound like sound is playing in a tin can)

Cons: cheap TN panel. Blues look purple eg. unvisited google search results look purple. Difficult to differentiate which sites I already been too (Screen HAS been properly setup) Magic Angle, Magic Bright, & Magic Color are all pretty much just a useless gimmick.

Other Thoughts: Better off spending the little bit more money to get a LCD with an IPS panel. The purple/blue issue is too big to ignore.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent monitor!

Pros: I've only had this monitor for a few weeks but I'm loving it so far. I previously had a Samsung 933BW so this was a nice size upgrade from the 19" on the former.

Excellent picture quality, sharpness, brightness, and color vibrancy.
Great for gaming.
Great response time when hooked up to PS3 on HDMI port, no noticeable delay.
Attractive design.
Touch controls.

Cons: No real flaws with this particular model. One could say it feels cheap BUT browsing major electronics retail stores and touching every LED TV or monitor there one should realize that is how they're ALL made these days, super thin and all plastic. But Samsung is at the top of the pile for quality products so I wouldn't particularly say anything bad about this product opposed to others, since it is better than everything I found in this price range (sub $300), got it on sale for $199 on Newegg. Great price for brand new with these specs!

I do wish it had a DVI port, but the HDMI has worked well. Luckily my video card is newer and has HDMI. Though it also has to DVI, which is what I have used in the past. HDMI is more modern anyway!

3 out of 5 eggsThey just don't make them like they used to!

Pros: --Very bright display
--Clear on-screen text
--Decent viewing angles
--2ms response time
--Seemingly non-wobbly stand

Cons: Cannot replicate the vibrant colors of my other display: Samsung Syncmaster PX2370. Which has taken me by surprise since I bought the PX2370 about 3 years ago.
I figured technology would have gotten better and the colors on the S23B550V would have been equal or better than the PX2370. Very disappointing!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous:

We’re glad to hear that you are still very happy with your PX2370, which was and still is an exceptional monitor. As you may know, we offer a wide variety of models to our customers. While you might find the image to be a little bit better on the PX2370 compared to the S23B550V, there are a few things we’d like to point out. The PX2370 had a higher retail price ($329 when new) and didn’t include built-in speakers or the MHL feature that are some of the stand out features on the new S23B550V. We do offer many displays with higher image quality as you move up our product line (SB750…etc.), which also offer the new MHL feature and built-in speakers. I hope this helps.
