Quite like the look of this Samsung SM226BW. The specs seem pretty good, and it's won some awards too (PC Advisor etc).

- Viewable Area: 22" Wide
- Resolution: 1680 x 1050
- Colours: 16.7 Million (8-Bit)
- Brightness: 300cd/m2
- Contrast Ratio: 3000:1
- Viewing Angle: 160/160
- Response Time: 2ms
- Inputs: 15pin D-Sub, DVI-D

This was previously priced at £209.99 (same as Amazon) but they've knocked a tenner off. Knowing eBuyer though the price could go back up at any time so be quick. There were 45 left when I 1st saw the deal 5 mins ago...

Cheers,
Matt :thumbsup:

p.s. This is my 1st deal so go easy on me!

Just clicked on the link to check I got the URL right and the monitor was showing back as £209.99. Then clicked the link again and it showed up as £199.99 again!

Not sure what's going on but I suggest you try the link a few times or refresh the page on eBuyer as it seems to change randomly!

I have the 20" version of this monitor (206bw) and it is absolutely fantastic. A little bit of white at the top of the monitor when it is meant to be black, but apart from that no complaints. Very easy to switch back and forth from VGA/DVI which is great if you use your 360 on it (which by the way looks immense). No ghosting at all when playing games like Counterstrike:Source. If you upgrade from a bog standard 17" you will never go back. £199 is very good price, considering my 20" cost me £179 in July from ebuyer.

I own this monitor. Some reviews complained about different panels used. I can honestly say I have owned this for 2 months and the display is stunning. I cannot identify the type of panel. But as mine is so new I suspect it it was of the "other" type reviewers discussed. But no complaints here and I have a critical eye!

agree..I didn't bother trying to find out what panel is on mine as I knew it would cloud my vision!!....I'm very happy and would highly recommend this monitor at £200..a bargain.

the reason why it is dropping in price is they are releasing a Wide Color Gamut version of the display 226CW. basically this means better colour reproduction. Dell is doing the same for its 24" display and off loading the them with discounts when you buy a desktop top from them. The high colour or wide colour gamut version of the 24" dell sells for a premium.

I did had the 206BW and it also suffered from alot of backlight bleed (the "little bit of white" that you refer to).

I wouldnt buy anything from Ebuyer - they kept sending me second hand goods in tatty boxes on orders i previously placed with them. Not very impressed at all.
#11
Another option is the Dell E228WFP, same size and similar specs, currently 20% off at £199.20. Suppose it's just which company you prefer!

Ahhhh yes i'm sure there was a technical term for it. I guess I have a different panel to the one you had. The only time it is noticeable is when a level is loading on CS:S. When watching movies, tv etc it's either so little or non-existant that I have never ever noticed it.
#14
yea i have this monitor too, definitley the best monitor ive ever had, only flaw is the power light flashes when its on standby and annoys me at night, but its a blue semi circle and looks way cool! :thumbsup:
#15
oops my bad, sorry
#16
I have this panel too,
Managed to get the "S" Panel meaning Samsung's own panel and not the AOC or other branded panel. The Blue light on the Power button is too bright especially in a dark room and the stand-by flash is irritating.
Overall this is the best panel Quality per buck although there other little annoyances with it. A few being the tilt angle, its always slightly tilted back/cannot be angled forwards and the lack of height adjustment.

Again, I too own this monitor and I have very high standards and can say that it is a superb monitor. Don't worry about pannel type it's worth the money :)

LOL only draw back is when you get in the office the nec 17" looks tiny!! lol
#18
I suppose the flashing at least encourages you to hit the power 'off' button. I always turn the monitor off for the night after I've shut down the PC.
#19
Yup, save the planet! :thumbsup:

Bought two of these in March this year worth every penny, nice monitor with DVI and VGA inputs and HDCP for the latest graphics cards.
#21
Also got the 20" version of this monitor, it's amazing :). I think I have the 'other' panel type, and I do get very bad white bars at the top and bottom on completely black screens which is a shame. Other than that, it's excellent for the money!
#22
I own this monitor since May - superb, the best gaming experience I ever had. Wife wasn't sure about massive 22'' size first but she wouldn't accept anything less now :)
#23
If anyone gets this monitor and gets the infamous 'C' panel, this page gives you instructions (including ICC profiles) on how to get it to look it's best. :thumbsup:

I've used both this model and the 206BW, both had 'C' panels, and both looked amazing once set up using the above settings.

[SIZE=1]But with VAT & delivery it comes to £234 (or £10 less if you get Quidco cashback). Going by independent reviews, it appears to be a very good monitor though.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Exactly. I cannot imagine why so many people have mentioned this when it's so easily gotten rid off![/SIZE]

spot on. it's not exactly easy to miss, it's the big blue flashing button. Not hard to press it in either.

Apparantly the Dell isn't bad either. It's only a 6-bit panel though, so it emulates 16 million colours rather than actually being a true 8-bit.

PCBuyIt have it for £210.32 incl. VAT...

and Overclockers UK have it for £211.49 incl. VAT...

It was a 'Deal of the Day' so looks like it's expired. Doh!
