5 out of 5 eggs Excellent replacement for an aging CRT 10/25/2007

This review is from: SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1(DC 3000:1)

Pros:

+ Excellent Colors once calibrated properly (Blows my 17in Sylvania out of the water).

+ Fast response time, no ghosting in any of the fast paced and slow paced games that I've tested with.

+ High resolution and display area is great for gaming, and working on two documents at a time.

Cons:

- The screen does not tilt, it only swivels on it's turntable base.

- As others have mentioned, poor calibration out of box (Too bright, not enough contrast)-though once properly calibrated, colors come out rich, with good contrast.

- Seems the vertical viewing angle is rather low (ie. if viewing the screen from above a certain point, it gets a blue tint).

- When screen is dark, yet not off, there is a bit of backlight bleed on lower center of screen.

Other Thoughts:

For the price, it's an excellent replacement for middle resolution CRTs. For those that are used to higher resolutions, check out the bigger sibling, the 24 inch 245BW, for about 150 bucks more.

Also, UPS delivered it in one piece. Newegg.com will continue to be my #1 choice for computer related purchases for some time to come.
