    Samsung LD220G and Mag Innovision GML2226

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we'll examine two flat panel monitors, the Samsung LD220G and the Mag Innovision GML2226. While neither one will break your budget, they're each designed for rather different purposes.

    Samsung LD220G monitor

    Are you in need of a companion display for your laptop?  Are you looking for a new standalone monitor?  If the first question describes your situation, take a look at the Samsung LD220G.  If the second question better describes you, you may want to look at different monitor, as the LD220G is lacking in performance and adjustable features.  You can find the 21.5-inch Samsung LD220G for  around $250 or less, depending on where you look, and it comes with a three-year warranty on parts and labor.

    The LD220G's 21.5-inch display has a 1,920x1,080 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, earning it the coveted status of being a full 1080p device.  Unfortunately, its picture quality is a mixed bag, depending on what you use it for.  For movies, the LD220G is a solid performer in terms of color accuracy.  However, while the colors are accurate, they fail to really jump off the screen due to the monitor's overall low brightness.  This could be disappointing for those who really enjoy watching a lot of DVDs on their computers. 

    Video games look decent on the screen in terms of color accuracy as well, but things fall apart when you use the monitor's USB connection.  If using the USB connectivity, a lot of input lag becomes apparent, making the gaming experience less than desirable.  Using the LD220G's VGA port helps eliminate this problem, though.

    Adjustable picture settings on the Samsung LD220G are limited.  The OSD can be accessed via a series of controls that reside on the monitor's lower right bezel.  The controls are not visible until activated, which causes them to glow with a cool orange color. 

    The menu interface is user friendly and very easy to navigate due to its small set of options.  There are five picture presets that come on the LD220G, and they really only adjust the screen's brightness when switched:  Custom, Notebook PC, Internet, Movie, and Dynamic Contrast. 

    Beyond these presets, the only other adjustable option is brightness.  You won't be able to adjust color, contrast, or anything else, which could be a negative if you are a big fan of picture tweaking.
