Was about to post this myself. Great price, over £200 at other places.

I'm after a 19/20" however.

Looks like a good deal. At first I wondered how different the specs were to the SM2253BW postred earlier in the week or two (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/226510/showthread.php?t=226510).

Basically ther same apart from the 2243 offers a stand which has height adjust and supports rotating the screen in portrait mode. Also the website shows a differenec in LCD response 5ms vs. 3ms (2243BW vs 2253BW).

I didn't read if the onsite warrenty is standard Samsung monitors or special for this ebuyer deal (someone else may want to check).

Of course the 2253BW @ play.com is not in stock yet, and the ebuyer one is. I'll let other decide which one to choose, but both appear to be great monitors for the price.

Alos worthy of note is the price of this 2243BW vs. the 2253BW price at play.com (also voucher and quidco apply for the play.com case).

Thanks for the post eddieitman ;-)

Balls, just bought the HP one from them, would have preferred the Samsung one as I use the 20" Samsung at work and have a Samsung HD TV so I know how good they are. HP is also bloody good however so not like I've got a worse monitor.
#4
Man i want this soo bad.
#5
If this is the one I think it is (my brother-in-law has one) then it's a great buy. Picture is clean and crisp and it looks lovely on your desk. Only drawback I would say is that the black plastic finish is a bit tacky, but at this price, who cares. Voted hot hot hot.

Both of these monitors are good, but expiring standards at 1680 x 1050.

If you want the higher 1920x1200 then for not much more money per square cm you can get a 24 inch Acer at play - £199.99

Doesn't have digital input...


I'm confused too:? If you read the review, it says comes with HD digital cable!!!
#9
Ooops :oops:

Hence the low price - then maybe one to pass by - strange that they've got the high pixel screen but not the ideal means to drive it :thinking:
#10
I bought this monitor for £210 back in December. Currently use it as a PC monitor via DVI and have the Xbox360 hooked up via VGA. Has fantastic colour representation, unrivalled by anything I've seen for the price. Small response time and excellent contrast ratio.

You can't go wrong at this price, I'm tempted to buy another to dual screen :)

Now my old 21" CRT is on it's last legs I'm looking for a decent all rounder - something that's good with games & movies (doesn't have to be astounding) but is also adequate for working with art & photos. With the latter in mind any monitor with the option to rotate the screen is attractive to me, but how does this one fare with that kind of thing?

I know a VA panel is meant to much better for any graphical work but 100% colour accuracy is not that huge a issue for the kind of work I do, so if this one can be recommended I might just take a chance on it - I was looking at the Yuraka 24" model but that has mixed reviews and a lottery as to what panel you wind up with.
#12
I can't say I've been keeping up with monitor/TV prices but 32" LCD displays are going cheap nowadays. Since I remember the Samsung 22" models having different panels (some high quality and some lower), there's no guarantee you'll get a top quality monitor for the money. I'd go for a 22" monitor like this in a flash if I could find one model that uses the exact same panels, but...

It's not colour accuracy that's the problem with TN, it's that the colours aren't the same across the screen and that's exacerbated in portrait mode. You'd have to use one to find out whether it was usable for you.

There's a review of the 2243BW here that talks about portrait mode:

The screen can also be pivoted 90 degrees into portrait mode, however the stand's height adjustment is too limited to allow this without also tilting the screen upwards.


You might be better off considering a reconditioned Dell 2007WFP (it's just stopped being sold new a few months ago) which is an IPS (with a chance on VA) screen. Here for example.

Samsung have loads of 22" models and quite a few share the same design.

With the 226BW they were all the same panel but manufacturered by different companies and some were set up better than others.

If you want a guaranteed samsung panel then look at one of the other manufacturers, I know iiyama use a samsung panel in their 24" B2403WS, maybe they also do in a 22".

Bit of advice from someone with 21 years commercial computing experience. If you want reliability, dont buy Acer......even the courier i use said that Acer returns keep his company, DHL, in business. For monitors...Samsung, HP, Dell ultra and NEC are fine.

You can buy the 20inch Samsung 2043BW from ebuyer for £139.99 inc VAT.

It is the same specs as the 2243BW so resolution is 1680x1050 but in a smaller space giving a sharper image. I just bought two of them because I have a dual screen setup and they are flawless. Also they can be adjusted in all directions meaning horizontal swivel on the base, vertically up and down, vertical tilting and rotation from portrait to landscape mode.

Cost per inch is £6.99 vs £7.80 per inch for the 2243BW

This is my first time posting on here but since I have first hand experience this week I thought I would you guys know.
#16
The title needs editing..... 1680x1050 isnt quite 16:9 aspect ratio, its 16:10
#17
about 5 different models have been mentioned so far in this thread which is the best?
#18
so does 16:10 mean a stretched image when watching dvds in 16:9 and can anyone tell if this is a gloss or matte screen, I'm gonna guess at this price its a matte?
#19
16:10 is in the middle of 4:3 and 16:9 so without control (and there may be none over digital inputs like DVI-D at HDTV standards) it will stretch 4:3 and squash 16:9 horizontally.

Not much use for a PS3, 16:10 support is being added to the 360's fall dash update, but I don't know if that will extend to games.

Its Ebuyer that has it down as 16:9 ;-) Does that mean they have to supply a 16:9 monitor at this price? :p
#20
Samsung are about the best of the top of the mid range imo.

If I hadn't been dazzled by LG's marketing tactics and already got on of theirs, I'd be all over this bad-boy..

O yes indeedy..

Good find

How Does this Compare :

Samsung 22" Sm2253bw Tft Wide 2ms 8000:1 Vga-Dvi

I see Insight is selling them for £140

As far as I can tell this one has a slower response time (5ms as opposed to 2ms) and does not have 1:1 pixel mapping whereas the 2253BW apparently does. If this is the case then the 2253BW should be able to handle games better and all movies and games should play at the correct aspect ratio too (it will add black borders at the top or sides). I don't think either model has HDMI but I think there are cables/converters you can buy for use with any consoles.

The edge this one seems to have is the stand allowing for rotation, and an extra feature in the 'touch' controls, however, reviews suggest both of these bonuses have drawbacks: the rotation to portrait exposes the TN panel's limited viewing angles, and the touch controls are apparently not well indicated so they can be tricky to work with.

Personally, I'm inclined to go with the 2253BW that Play should have in monday.

Do they have Picture in Picture????

Gah I'm confused now, which do I get the 2253 or the 2243?

The prices aren't helping with both screens on various shop sites ranging from £140 to £200+, so the 2252 has a basic stand but 1:1 pixel mapping (how do we know this I need info?) and costs less than the 2243 which has a more complex stand with height adjust and vertical mode.

All that's stopping me buying the 2253 is not knowing if it definitely has the 1:1 pixel mapping and that the 2243 definitely does not have 1:1 pixel mapping, otherwise I'd much prefer the 2243. Odd numbering system you'd think the higher number would mean the better screen?

The 2253BW has 1:1 pixel mapping (i.e. drive the display at 1280x1024 and your image will get 1280x1024 pixels displayed in the centre of the screen with the remainder of the screen in black).

I recieved my 2253BW today. The panel is from CMO. It looks fine to me.
