I had been using a Samsung 19 inch LCD display since last year or so. It was pretty good and i really didn’t need a new LCD display anyways. But things turned out in a different way and i had to buy a new monitor. So i went in for a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW. That’s right, it’s a 22inch monitor. And the web looks bigger now 😉
I have trusted Samsung since long and i believe in their display units. I remember my first CRT monitor from BenQ. I bought it for 7000 INR and even though it is 17″ inch flat CRT monitor and in perfect health and shape, the resale value for that monitor is not more than 1000INR. So it’s still sitting tight in my computer peripherals almirah. However as for Samsung, i am really pleased with the picture quality, the technology, the looks of the monitor and of course, the resale value. As on now, i have three monitors, all of Samsung brand. One being 17″ TFT monitor being used by my brother. Other one being 19″ widescreen LCD display, being used by my father. And the third one that i just bought being used by me at the moment. Check out the image i have attached on right. This is what i now have and it looks really good.
Samsung SyncMaster 226BW is a 22inch flat screen computer monitor and has a high resolution of 1680×1050. This model weighs around 10.8lbs. That’s around 4.9kgs. Yes, it’s pretty heavy. But i like this mean machine. It’s got 16:10 aspect ratio which is more favorable when watching movies or any video. It accepts DVI input, so i get a pretty good, in fact better signal clarity. As for the response time, this model has it at 2ms. So this seems to be perfect for my needs, that is movies and high end gaming. 😉
Samsung SyncMaster 226BW is a value for money kinda stuff. The features you get in this monitor are pretty cool for a monitor prices this low. Oh well, i forgot mentioning the price. It’s woth $330. That’s around 16,000 INR. Of course i read all the available reviews on this monitor at all popular sites like Cnet, etc, before buying it. And i was unable to find any Cons for this machine. And now that i have been using it for a week or so, i can’t find any cons either. So it’s really pretty good!
And hey, just one more thing. I also got my computer formatted. And now am running Microsoft Vista on my PC. And yes, it is a legit copy. The experience is wonderful. The clarity and sharpness is superbly amazing. And along Vista providing graphics and all gallery stuff it does, this monitor really makes my experience, a very pleasant one! 🙂
