no dead pixles
dvi cable included
horribly out of calibration
panel type is now hidden
6 bit colour
It's a pretty good monitor and for the price it is among the best out there. My big concearn with it was that the contrast was set to 100% out of the box. If you are willing to take some time to adjust the monitor out of the box this screen is well worth the price.

Experience: 10 Weeks
The 2ms response time makes this monitor a sweet gaming monitor as well as a fantastic movie watching monitor.
It was so great that we went and bought a second one!
No dead pixels on either one!
My brother bought the most expensive shipping option but he didn't need to RMA it... so, I guess that's actually a good thing!
It's an outrageous setup to look at two of these on your desk, allowing you to really take advantage of the multi-tasking abilities of a Quad processor. It's easy enough to play a game on one monitor while downloading files and MSNing on the other monitor. These have brought our computer usage to a whole new level of entertainment and productivity!

Great Colour
Great Resolution
Great Buy
Must Be Calibrated (Out-of-the-box)
All and all, a super buy, im glad i got it v 279, it is worth every penny. Comes with both a DVI and VGA cable, and although some have said that the A-panel is crap or some things like that, I don't know or care what type of panel I have I just know it takes a bit of calibrating. I actually found that after I turn MagicColor off and then calibrate it, it looks better. For some reason I find that MagicColor screws the colour up. Maybe it's just me, I don't know, you may find different.

If you have a top-of-the-line video-card, and are a gamer, or even just a photo-design, autocad, even office applications and movies type of person, then regardless, this is the monitor for you. The stunning crisp detail and "Dynamic" contrast resolution which this monitor pumps out look amazing.

It is aestetically pleasing as well.

Appearance (looks fantastic!)
Extras -- eg. microfiber cloth, beautiful little stand, etc.
It may just put your computer to shame!
First off; for those of you who haven't used a 22" screen before (I had not until a couple days ago), it's an experience to put it lightly! This screen is a whole other thing again. The contrast and resolution make ANYTHING look amazing: Movies, games, animating, 3d modeling, TV, and so on. I could not reccommend this monitor more; it's simply amazing, with a great price ($280).

Experience: 4 Months
Great monitor for the price.
Needs some calibration out of the box, small amount of back light bleeding (common with TFT monitors) but not enough to bother me.
I've been very happy with this monitor, initially I thought it was way too bright and the colors were washed out but after calibrating with MagicTune the display looks fantastic.

Good resource on calibrating with MagicTune:

Experience: 2 Days
Great colours, bright, and really crisp picture. It also looks really classy too!
Had a bluish tint brand new, but after adjusting the screen settings you would never know it was an issue.
I gave it a four out of five because it's not the best 22" LCD out there, but it's darn close. I upgraded from a five year old dual 17" CRT setup. This was a welcome upgrade, I lost about 4" of work space but the 22" is still enough I don't feel the need to get a second LCD for more room. This is definitely worth the purchase if you want an LCD that is around the $300 mark and not entry level. It's the right size for most desks too as 24" is too big realistically for most people.

Great size, Colors are great once setup with ICC calibration
Backlight.... S, C, A, junk.
Overall I'm happy, question how much backlight bleeding is to much? Here's a picture and tell me what you think..

I need to decide if it's bad enough to return on not.. this is my FIRST LCD screen.. Everyone's Input would sure be appreciated.. let me kno...

Angle of view,
All in all it's a good monitor. The price was very good and I'm satisfied. The is very little bleeding and the color are decent (No idea if i got an A,B,C or whatever panel).

The quick gamma button is very nice to switch between games, words or movies.

Comment: (French review) Comparatif de plusieurs moniteur 22 pouces. Le Samsung en resort le meilleur dans pratiquement tout les aspects.
Posted by: PanzerIV @04/05/07
Comment: Verdict The Samsung SyncMaster 226BW combines a stylish housing, and great features such as HDCP compatibility on its DVI port, with very impressive image quality. It’s a combination that means that it wins an award and makes it the pick of the 22in bunch.
