(Closed) - 22" Monitor wanted(33 posts)
I have the HP w2207h on both of my desktops and am very happy with them. I got there per default because my HP system came with it as a bundle. But I think there are some that are better price/performers because the HP is relatively expensive. The Samsung SyncMaster 226BW had an excellent test in the Computerbild and the lowest price shown was €216. The US prices would be lower - but how would you get them from there.
got it :)
My lil mag says the Samsung SM226BW is really good
I shall find it cheaply though
3000:1 aspect ratio!!!!
max resolution: 1,920x1,200
brightness rating: 300cd/m^2
that sounds pretty good to me!
'Whether working with text documents, photos or video clips, this screen is a superb all-round choice'
'BOTTOM LINE: Well-priced and boasting impressive features, this is the most sensible buy in this month's round up'
One slight disadvantage - screen is not height adjustable - is that a problem?

Hope this helps!
Samsung does make a nice monitor, but there's so many minor things that can be wrong with a lot of them striaght from the factory, like mine, I loved it, still do, but it's 2 years later and now it has little yellow triangles migrating down from the top corners, I looked it up online and it seems that I'm not the only one whose had this problem, if I was at home I would probably send it back, but since I gave that computer to my roommate and it doesnt bother him, I think I'll just go ahead and stick with the laptop for now, until I feel like I have enough geek skills to build my own computer, I know I still have a LOT to learn before I get there, I'll probably wait until Vista 64bit is completely debuggefied and the possibly fix the legacy problems with it :) or I could post a new forum and have you guys help!!!
Lighthouse, after all my hardwork!!!!!
And that was exactly what I was going to say whs
(Obviously Sony and B and O are way higher, but that is another league)
I have never known anybody to have problems with their Samsungs, so JKays comment surprised me
Having said all this I am currently just using my laptop, but still
Why the vendetta against Samsung Lighhouse?
Well I suppose I could paint over the Logo :) My vendetta goes back to the days when Samsung first started marketing in the UK. Their products were shite!
Sony I love. Always have.
And any links must be to French vendors. There seems to be problem getting them shipped in from abroad. Maybe too many get broken en route!
Europe's like a shopping mall....that's such a classic American thing to say!
It's in the film Eurotrip too (a trip to Europe by 4 Americans in case you hadn't guessed!)
I'm not sure what the prices are like in France?
And Lighthouse, Sony are brilliant, do you want me to have a scout around for one of them? I just thought that it would be a little above your budget, as that quality (and brand name!) comes with a price
