Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H review


The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H is a sleek and stylish, but expensive TN monitor – it comes with no extra features to justify the expense. Image quality is reasonable, and certainly good enough for games.

It’s sleek and stylish, but the Samsung is expensive for a TN monitor – and comes with no extra features to justify the expense. Image quality is reasonable, and certainly good enough for games, but you can do better for your money.

Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H review


The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H is a stylish 23in screen with a Full HD resolution and a clever cable management system. Two small panels on the back of the stand pop out to reveal enough space for two or three cables, and once re-assembled the effect...

A smart design and clever cable management system make the S23A550H an attractive monitor, but it's expensive and you can get better image quality for less

Samsung S23A550H


All good really

The plastic cover that hides the cables at the back is flimsy ; and the little plastic clips are liable to snap off,but it does do the job ; To get digtal quality you will need to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable

Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H


The Samsung PX2370 review is consistently the most popular monitor review on CNET. Not surprising, since it's the monitor I recommend the most, on nearly a daily basis, through other monitor reviews and nearly every monitor-related blog post. The...

The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H has a visually striking footstand, a comprehensive OSD, color mostly devoid of hue problems, and good performance displaying movies and games. The monitor's brightness is fairly high, making it good for presentation...

The S23A550H has a nasty habit of washing out bright colors, and in certain tasks it pushes too much green. Also, its connection ports are a pain to access and the cable management feature is shoddily implemented. The better-performing and...

The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H LED monitor performs well and the price is good, but it simply pales in comparison with its predecessor.

Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H


Samsung monitors have long been known for their style and solid image quality, and the SyncMaster S23A550H ($259.99 list) continues the trend. This 23-inch beauty delivers outstanding color quality and great dark grayscale performance, and does so...

Good color and dark grayscale performance. Stylish design. Energy efficient

Weak light grayscale performance. Limited ports. Tilt-only stand

The Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H is a stylish 23-inch monitor that delivers vibrant colors and does a good job of reproducing the darkest steps of the grayscale. It's easy on your utility bill, but you don't get much in the way of connectivity and...

Excellent monitor for the price and size.


Not much else to say. I still stand by my decision to buy at the price I did. Note, as the review writer has done as well, the stand is quite interesting in design, by virtue of being unique and quite stable. I'd buy it again, if that means anything....

Good build quality, very good price for the size, I purchased mine new on sale for $349 after tax. I hadn't thought of looks or design, but they are not blatantly not-good if that makes sense. The various Auto, ECO functions are nice to have as well

Agreed negative-cable routing, but I did get the cover to close fully without cutting self. I'd modify On-screen menu with tactile buttons, or alternately, with some other means of feedback. These prompted me to give it the half star off of a full 5

Wonderful picture with great HD graphics. Good price.


I have owned many monitors and this one is easily the nicest and my favorite by far. The HD connection is great showing movies and games as they were meant to be seen.

Priced resonable at around 250.00. HDMI connection. HD graphics are great. Very sleek and slim

None as of yet

Nice brilliant color and crisp!


After playing around with this and changing the settings the product performs well. However I do wish it was setup better for PC users which it would be appealing to. Also looking at the specs online this is identical to the 300 Series 23inch by...

First of all like Eric of CNET mentioned this monitor was terrible out of the box when it came to displaying blacks. The blacks were grey and you could not tell the difference between grey on a black background. There was some light bleed. The colors were

The default setting of HDMI Black level should be set to low by default as many people using this would be PC users. I bet the normal setting will appeal to those who want to watch movies but it does wash out colors when reading web pages at a close dista
