    Samsung SyncMaster 226BW Monitor

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    When it comes to computer monitors, Samsung knows what they are doing. They have been making computer monitors since 1981, and have become a leader in the field. They have been number 1 in monitor sales for three consecutive years. Today we review Samsung's SynchMaster 226BW.


    The reason Samsung is so good is their innovation, their high quality, and the fact that they give the consumer exactly what they want. So needless to say, the introduction of the Samsung SyncMaster 226BW has seen mostly positive praise in a very competitive class of monitors that is growing more competitive very rapidly.

    The 226BW is a true wide screen LCD monitor that can handle high speed graphics for gaming or video, and can produce high resolution imagery that is second to none. This monitor seems to be another great choice for buyers looking for a nice wide screen for gaming or running multiple applications on the screen at the same time. You would expect a monitor like the 226BW to cost a lot more than the $300 price tag you can find it for with a little searching online. Samsung is somehow able to create these great products and still manage to keep the costs low enough so that they are still affordable for the average consumer.


    You will definitely need some space on your computer desk to fit this one, at least as far as width goes. Of course being a flat panel, you will not need much space behind this monitor. From corner to corner, the viewable screen measures 22 inches. The full dimensions of the monitor are 16.6 x 20.3 x 8.6 inches. It is about 4 inches wider than a typical 16 inch CRT monitor.

    The look of the 226BW is very attractive, with its sleek black finish. The screen sits atop a base that is pretty sturdy in most situations. This base will swivel and tilt to the desired angle of the user. The entire monitor weighs less than 12 pounds. This is the huge advantage of having a flat panel monitor rather than a CRT monitor which weighs much more than the flat panel, and moving it is not easy. The lightweight stature and the flatness of the 226BW also make it capable of being mounted on the wall.

    The front of the monitor sports the controls for the 226BW. Here you can find the brightness, contrast, H/V position, sharpness, color balance, gamma correction, and color temperature controls. These controls are located at the bottom right corner of the monitor, and they do not take up much space. The MagicTune technology integrated into the 226 BW allows for adjusting the screen via the mouse, which helps to cut down on the number of controls on the actual monitor and saves space.

    You can tell that Samsung put a lot of work into the design of this monitor. It gives the user everything they would need at the $300 price level, and even more. The MagicTune technology was a great addition to this monitor, because it helps to conserve space on the flat panel and avoid a bunch of unattractive buttons and controls. I would have liked to see some other color options with this one, but that is really only a very minor complaint. The high-gloss black finish is extremely attractive, and it will be liked by most consumers.
