So today my new Samsung SyncMaster 2233bw monitor arrived.  I ordered it exactly one week ago and it is here already, now that is really fast. The last time i ordered something from Pixmania it took about 4 weeks!, but that delay was caused by the high amount of packages that were being sent since it was Christmas time.

Shortly after i arrived home from college today i got a phone call, it turned out to be the DHL delivery man, he was looking for directions. It was great i had’nt expected it to be delivered today, I had thought it might of come on friday. So i got the package after signing for it and straight away begun to open it 😀

From the appearence of the box it didnt look like it was going to be very big, but by the time i had it opened and set up it looked pretty big and impressive. But once it was finally switched on, i really noticed the difference. The screen resolution is 1680 x 1050 pixels.It is really bright and displays the different colours brilliantly. Also it is 22″ in size and and has built in features such as MagicBright, MagicColor and so on. Also it has a built in sleep timer so it wont be wasting any power, you just simply set how long you want before it shuts off, simple 🙂

So in the box was the monitor (Obviously), a VGA cable, a DVI cable, power cord, cleaning cloth, manual, warranty card and a driver disc. It was really easy to set up and was definitly worth the €169 that i paid 😀

When i was going to order this new monitor i wanted one that had support for DVI, i recently noticed that i had a port for a DVI connection and decided that when i was going to change the screen that i would like it to support DVI, since DVI outputs a higher quality picture. Up until now i have been using the VGA cable, which is basically standard with most monitors. Also i kept in mind that i wanted the new monitor that i ordered to be in widescreen format, because i was getting tired of my old monitor, it was square and when you are looking at a monitor all day, it is best to have a nice big screen with a really crisp picture 😀

So I would definitly recommend buying this monitor,  all of this for only €169, it is definitly worth it. You can get it over at Pixmania.

    Yeah it would be pretty nice to have 2 of them, however my computer only has one input for monitors. It will have to wait until when i decide to get a new computer.

    If i got 2 though i would’nt know what to do with the space, there is already a lot more than i am used too. 😀

    Yeah there are holes on the back so you can screw it onto the wall 😀

    Ha ha!
    You said screw! 🙂

    I am probably going to buy a used one for little bit more than €100. Thanks for the review, i found it helpful.

    Can you tell me some thought of it now? any +/-?

      This monitor has no problems in my opinion, i have been using it almost a year now it is working perfectly now.

      So much that i went out and bought a second monitor the same as above.

      One thing to note when you are buying this monitor is that there is 2 of the same version with slightly different specs, the only difference is the dynamic contrast.

      The first one i bought was 20000:1 and my second was 50000:1, the 50000:1 is much brighter and only because i have 2 side by side i can notice the difference.

      Just thought if you were to get one, perhaps the brighter one would be more worth your while.
