Nice price, saw this earlier.

Don't see many people rating this ....Any reason?
Oh and what is a TN panel
Thank''s
#4
TN panels have quick response times but poor viewing angles. You can see the colours change noticeably when you're not head on to the panel.
#5
Thank's.....
Not so good then.
Regards:thumbsup:

Not the end of the world, i have the 22" and the picture is very good. Just take note that if you use it in your bedroom the blinking blue light may drive you nuts, i just turn it off but you get the idea :)

They're ok, nearly all 1680x1050 panels are TN films.

Not all that much more for a 24" panel (OCUK or Scan) with a higher res 1920x1200 PVA based panel.

I have the 2ms version of this (226BW) and its an amazing monitor. The viewing angle has no issues here and the picture quality is awesome. Highly recommended.:thumbsup:

Yeah the viewing angle issues isn't a big problem for normal PC use, but if you're trying to watch a movie with some friends you can notice the change as you move out from head on.

A decent monitor, but noticeably worse when compared to a PVA monitor, especially with contrast, colours, and viewing angles! I'm not sure how much better this Samsung is compared to other cheaper makes with the 22" TN panel though...

Hi Guys- being a long time fan of HUK deals, I finally registered!::thumbsup:

I literally bought this monitor last week, with the exacts spec(also ordered from e-buyer). From what I hear about its quality, this is one of the bests TFT i've used- I am graphic designer, and I usually use Dell monitors at work-which the image does not look as sharp or glossy as the samsung.

From a more superficial point of view, its looks and design are also great- its a very sleek monitor.

Minor Downside:
There is indeed a slight fuzzines with the colour depending on the angle you look- very suttle though. It does not really effect as I use it solely as a Monitor in a office. If you used for TV,watching movies and you are laying in bed it would be a bit annoying to keep staring at the same angle.

Other Downside: No USBs, S-video, Sound or any kind of additional facilites to it that you see in some other monitors. DVI and Analog only.

21.6 should cost less...

I'm starting to tire of people pointing out that a monitor in this price range has a TN panel.

If PVA or S-IPS monitors where similar in price to TN panels, then yeah - you need to point out that it's a TN panel and the issues that could bring. They are not comparible in price though. Fact is 99% of brand name monitors under £250-300 are going to be TN panels.

If it's speciafially PVA or S-IPS then sure point it out as a positive.

When people say "It's a TN panel mind you..." All that happens is you get non-tech people reading posts about viewing angles and colours and getting worried that they're buying a lemon.

Before you start getting too tired of people pointing out other options:

http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=600010

24" gaurenteed MVA Panel for £215

http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?Quicklinx=50C4&SearchType=1&SearchTerms=Value%20L%202442WD&PageMode=3&SearchKey=All&SearchMode=All&NavigationKey=0&tduid=f2c6f0c579e44eac5509e7c1ed813820

Same monitor for £200 but not gaurenteed MVA.

TN film has its limitations, for the extra few quid you get a better panel in terms of technology, size and resolution. Plus native 1080p support. On the downside its not a big brand.

I bought this monitor about a month ago (when it was last on HUKD). I must say that I am more than happy with it, without a doubt it is one of the best monitors I have ever seen.
My only complaint is that it is very bright and I have had to turn the brightness down to 5% to avoid going blind :-D
#16
i have a Samsung 226bw and i think its great the size and picture quality are a great step up from my 17" monitor.
#17
I have the 20.1" version (206BW) and it is a nice monitor and has a great viewing angle (maybe I was lucky?). The only jip (other than the blue flashing light :P) is that I don't like the 'dynamic contrast' feature of changing the brightness which causes blacks to look slightly blue. On the plus side it came with all the cables which were just the right length. Unless you want your colours to be perfect I recommend this monitor!

hey guys, I bought this monitor after seeing rave reviews here and e-buyer.. This is my first flat screen (always had CRT as image quality has been better).. have not tested it on photos in photoshop yet, but initial impressions are very good.
However, I need clarification on one issue. The screen comes with VGA & DVI connectors & cables. My new PC (dell xps, with 8800gt card) only has DVI output. So I connect DVI to DVI... no signal. I have to place a converter on the PC to convert output to VGA and use the VGA cable!
This can't be right, and if so am I missing out on image quality?

Thanks
