The monitor is very sharp and quite stunning in its color rendition.

First being the touch sensitive controls on the monitor itself; these tend to be annoying at times, not wanting to respond to my touch.

I don't consider myself a videophile, but the monitor physically looks good, has a great design, and a bright crisp picture.

This is absolutely a good buy. The monitor is so beautiful and well-functioned. No HDMI port, but this is not a problem. This monitor offers one VGA and one DVI port. That's enough for me. Plug it in and it works without installing any driver. I think I'm getting a $300 high-end product while I only pay $180 for it.

I don't know why I'm the first review on this monitor, but so far it's perfect! I've had it for a couple of weeks now and couldn't be more pleased. Beautiful picture, beautiful looks. Touch of color is very subtle. I love it. The touch button on the front is nice too, giving you access to the monitor settings from the monitor itself. It also comes with a program, MagicTune Premium, to adjust the settings through the computer. I don't even have it connected to a digital input and it's great. No problems at all, shipped very quickly.

In my quest for a new office desktop monitor I spent several days looking over sizes, features, brands, reviews and pricing. In the end I chose the Samsung P2250 22-Inch Widescreen Touch of Color LCD Monitor based on a combination of all of those.

When I received it set-up was a breeze; unpack, connect and plug-in. When it was turned on for the first time I have to say I was in complete awe for several minutes. Going from a 6 year old 15" Sylvania to this beauty was long over due.

What I like most about this monitor besides the size, is it's crisp picture and vibrant colors. No more eye strain while working for hours on spreadsheets and photos, movies and videos look great.

There is one major downfall to this monitor, which will definitely be a deal breaker for some people. It is lacking an HDMI input and this is disappointing especially coming from Samsung, but for me since this was a work monitor it didn't have any effect on my decision. Additionally the monitor does not swivel left to right, it only adjusts up and down.

Other items worth noting are the touch display buttons that glow red when in use, but don't show up otherwise and I didn't know if I'd like the "touch of red" on the monitor frame, but it looks really nice in person.

*I uploaded one of the pictures I took of the monitor into the customer images.

This is a great monitor but beware of the magic tune program- I downloaded the premium magic tune program off of the website and it destabilized my computer, couldn't open anything without the computer going into a restart. Had to go in in safe mode and delete the magic tune program before it would work. I also installed a asus 3450 video card at the same time as the monitor so that might have something to do with it. Don't let that scare you off, as far as I am concerned this is the best monitor you can buy until at least $200.

This is a definite buy especially for the price. I've been looking for a monitor for over a couple months purely for gaming. It seems monitors are the best for gaming because of 1) The price compared to a T.V. 2) 1080P in a compact picture 3) Very fast response time. To start off on the monitor, it has a great picture, design, and easy set up. But as you've heard it only has a vga and dvi hookup. To me, a xbox 360 owner, this was a perk because I don't have to buy any converters so it saved me a lot of time and heartache. The set up is easy and you may have to work a little bit on the picture and YOU HAVE TO SET THE RESPONSE TIME IN THE SETTINGS. Like I said before I searched for months trying to find the right one and finally found this diamond in the rough. All in all its a fantastic monitor and for the price of $180, your practically stealing it. LED's are the next generation item so your gonna see LCD's drop in price no matter how nice they are.

PRO's :
- Great picture and fast response time ( 2ms, 1080p)
- Easy set up
- Very purtty design

CON's : ( Not much to worry about)
- A little bulky
- A little back light bleed through, blacks aren't distinguished the best
- Only VGA and DVI

***UPDATE: After using the monitor for a couple of months, I have to say I might have been a bit generous with 3 stars. Using this in a fairly dark room, the bleed-through is awful on the top and bottom edges, not only with black, but any dark colors. There is simply no way to reduce the backlight directly, and all of the gamma, brightness, and contrast controls (on the monitor and with my ATI drivers) do very little to reduce the bleed-through. Aggravated? You betcha.***

Bleed-through is pretty bad. I'm very tempted to send it back over that issue, but so much is going on right now. Needed a monitor fast, chose the Samsung name because I had a good Samsung that broke during moving. (And I am super pleased with my LN46A650 HDTV.)

Sharpness is good, and it certainly is bright enough. Color accuarcy is also good.

The problem is, I like a black desktop, and the bleed through is very annoying. Worse than on many CCFL monitors.

Also, as noted, the stand is as cheap as they could get away with.

The "touch" controls are a pain. Every time you think you have figured out where to touch, the target seems to move a little.

By the way, I installed the drivers and made every possible adjustment to reduce the bleed through. The backlighting is simply set too bright and cannot be toned down. (And I guess the LCD matrix they used is aimed at budget buyers.)

All in all this is a let down. I wish I had done a bit more research and spent a few bucks more to get something better. This is a cheapo monitor with the Samsung name stamped on it. I hope Samsung protects its reputation better than this in the future.
