You can get a large monitor for under $300 these days -- and they come with some excellent extras. Today we'll be looking at the Samsung 2333HD and the LG Flatron E2350V, two great examples showing that bigger is not only better; it often comes with more options.
Samsung 2333HD monitor
The Samsung 2333HD is a 23-inch monitor that closely resembles an HDTV in its form and settings. The 2333HD is available for around $250, and it comes with a three-year warranty
The 2333HD's 23-inch display has a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 and a 16:9 aspect ratio. Its full HD resolution means you can use the monitor to watch Blu-ray DVDs if you wish, for the best viewing experience possible. Movies do look good on the monitor, although colors may seem a bit on the dull side to some. They do not jump or pop off the screen as one might hope. Color accuracy is decent, and black levels are satisfactory.
Games seem to look better on the 2333HD than movies do. Screen brightness is good overall, as opposed to some monitors that suffer from a lack of brightness. The monitor's integrated speakers provide a sufficient level of volume, preventing you from having to wear headphones all the time.
If you want to adjust the monitor's settings, you might have some trouble, as the controls for the on-screen display (OSD) reside on the right side of the panel. It's not the location of the controls that is the problem; rather, it is the entire setup of the OSD itself. The OSD does not align with the controls on-screen as with other monitors, so you might take a while to get used to making adjustments until you memorize the location of each control. Of course, you can bypass this learning curve by simply using the remote that Samsung includes with the monitor.
