Monitors

This is mostly for my reference (for a later date), but I thought I would put it here as well.

So I’m in the market for a new monitor… eventually (pending graduation, and then a job… not necessarily in that exact order). I’ve been using a 17″ Samsung SyncMaster 955DF CRT for say… about 6 years now. It’s been a nice monitor, but it’s heavy and starting to show it’s age.

Anyway, considering how good my Samsung monitor has been to me, I’m currently looking at what’s offered. And by far, the SyncMaster 226BW has caught my eye. It’s a 22″ widescreen LCD, with a sweet 2ms response time for a cool $300 price. And it’s gotten some pretty decent user reviews as well. The only 2 real “gripes” about the product is that the stand is not height adjustable, which really isn’t a big concern to me. The other issue seems to be is that there are three different manufactures of this monitor, there’s the A panel (produced by AOU), S panel (produced by Samsung), and the C panel (produced by CMO Chi Mei Electronics). Apparently there’s been a few issues with the other manufacturers besides Samsung, but I haven’t had a chance to really look and see what they actually look like in-store. Whenever I eventually pick up this monitor, I’ll post my impressions on what I think.
