It's not the cheapest 22-inch widescreen around, but it's a beauty

Glorious pictures ; Good design

Minimal connections ; Bulky

Samsung Pebble SyncMaster 2232BW

 

If you prefer style over substance and don't mind paying more for less, Samsung's Syncmaster 2232BW Pebble is the LCD Monitor for you.

The OSD buttons are labelled on the front of the monitor across the lower bezel, but before you cheer at how much easier this makes operating the settings, or groan at the aesthetic crime of it, let me tell you that they're a mixed blessing. On the one...

Samsung SM-2232BW 22in flat-panel monitor

 

Although it goes here under the rather modest model name of the SM-2232BW, this screen is actually part of Samsung's 'Pebble' range. We're not exactly sure why the range is called 'Pebble', but we do know that these are amongst the most attractive...

Samsung seems to have the drop on its competitors when it comes to flat-panel technology. This isn't the first top-calibre LCD monitor we've seen riding out of the Samsung stables, and the Samsung SM-2232BW is another excellent model that looks great...

Samsung SyncMaster 2232BW

 

Samsung brings its beautiful Pebble TV design to its newest 22in TFT.

As the successor to the 226BW, the 22in SyncMaster 2232BW has high standards to meet. And it has nothing to worry about as far as its looks are concerned.The monitor's "Pebble" design is new to Samsung's monitor range with this model, but anyone...

Review: Samsung 22" LCD SyncMaster Monitor, Model 2232BW

 

The Samsung 22" LCD SyncMaster Monitor, Model 2232BW is just about as sexy as an HDTV when it comes to crystal clear clarity, colors, and of course that sleek, slim look that nearly all Samsung LCD's have. This monitor offers an orgasm to the eyes,...

Samsung Pebble 22" LCD 2232BW

 

It would be fair to say that the monitor is the most important part of any computer. As the main point of communication between the computer and the user, it limits the quality of any multimedia experience. Be it work or play, a good quality monitor is...

A stand so bad they may as well have given you a bit of wood and some nails. Attracts more dust than my video collection

Samsung SyncMaster 2232bw

 

Stunning living-room style, great image quality and a price thatwon't break the bank

Not that it needed much adjusting out of the box: the stunning backlight was crisp and even, and colours were neutral too. It even has some preset colour modes worth looking at, not the usual once-tried-forever-forgotten settings we see on most monitors

Stylish and modern looking

Does not swivel on stand ; No inbuilt speaker, but really it's a monitor only
