This is not a gaming monitor for those planning on getting one for it. VA Panels have the worst response times out of both IPS and TN, but on the other hand have true 8-bit colour gamut and the most accurate and deepest blacks out of the three panels. If you are a graphic designer you simply won't find better for the money.

Good analysis of this monitor's strong points, and it's a very good price for a branded 1080p 23" display.

However, i'd disagree with this:

Or they are a good idea for two side panels in an eyefinity setup.


I appreciate the logic of higher response time being of less importance on the peripheral monitors. However mixing & matching different panel/brand monitors for an Eyefinity setup will create a very obvious difference in colour definition between the screens.
Much better to get 3 identical monitors. (or even better, 3 identical projectors!)

I don't understand why people want HDMI for their computer monitors. Hook your blu-ray player/games console up to your TV, this is for your PC!

This is an unbelievable price.
If I didn't have 2 good 23/24" screens, I would've gone for this.

soap box the reason people want want HDMI is so they have the option of watching Blu Ray DVDs, Sky HD, and other devices. Its better having more connections and ports than less. Not everyone can hook up their games consoles to their Tv as usually more than 1 person lives in a house and therefore people all want to watch different things or do different things

There's always VGA/DVI to HDMI converters if you really want

plus, DVI is better than HDMI for PCs

Combined with this the monitor will have a HDMI input:

You'd probably need an active convertor seeing as VGA is analog and HDMI is digital.

The issue is not whether the monitor has DVI or HDMI inputs (as the two are easily adaptable), it's whether the monitor itself is HDCP aware & compliant.

Unfortunately Google can't find a definitive answer to this question, and predictably the Samsung website is useless.

Look at the Scan tech specs pace, big Red 'X' next to HDCP...

Good if you want to use it as a PC monitor, for everything else, look for something different (HDMI, sound in and out).

Tempted by this, no need for HDMI, but the ghosting issues sound annoying, my monitors are 5ms and they are about 4.5 years old and this is 8ms..... So not sure, but a great price for a good size Samsung still!

There will inevitably be a trade-off in terms of feature set for a VA panel at under £100, However, what you do get is rich colours, white whites and black blacks.

To those bemoaning the lack of HDMI for PS3/Blu-Ray purposes - I really wouldn't bother with this if I were you . Whilst the ghosting on modern VA panels has been reduced significantly, there still not suited for watching films or playing games, if indeed that is to be this monitor's primary use. I'm using a fairly new Benq VA monitor at the moment.

I'm well aware of that buddy, I just thought I would answer what alot of people were asking in the previous thread. There are plenty of people out there looking for monitors for use with consoles and media player.

I have a 24" version of the syncmaster i got for free (2443nw) and I don't rate it highly - at this price though its worth it.

I bought a couple of these the other day from Scan at £102 each, and I thought they were a bargain even at that price. Got them running side by side in a dual monitor set-up. Very impressed.

Samsung Support zero .... couldn't disagree more. Have had customers monitors replaced next day on site with usually factory refurbs or even newer models right up until the last days of the 3 years warranty. Samsung monitors don't pretend to be top end cutting edge they do exactly what they say - good quality monitors at a good price.

Anyone worried about reponse times is insane!

VA panels are generally extremely sought after as the usual TN+ panels are considered the bottom of the barrel. Yes TN's are slightly faster, but VA panels display things much much better (it's a hugely noticable difference), and at the end of the day don't you buy a mointor to display things!

I imagine most of the hardcore computer enthusiast forusm will go mad for this deal (bittech/cpc/aria).

might be helpful to say why
#33
OT question, hope you don't mind

Would you want your monitor on the fastest response time all the time, or is there some reason for wanting a slower response at times? I ask because my monitor defaults on a slower response time than it is capable of. Actually, it is all so fast I can't tell the difference. Probably just me!

Exactly - this is a good monitor for the money. If you want something for your Photoshop work or gaming, you probably need to spend more money - simple! If you want HDMI (you need a TV! Ahem.) you also need to spend more money! Not rocket science.

It's still a cracking deal for a huge number of people who just want to use it with their computer.

2333SW is a TN panel and not VA. The only thing that makes them similar is the chassis they are in...
