Customer Reviews

Monitor stand does not adjust or tilt.

That's an hour of our lives, full of frustration and worry, that we will never have back.

Very energy efficient 24" LED monitor. Samsung also has nice tuning software, especially Natural Color Pro for gamma adjustment. Also has angle viewing adjustments that are convenient. The monitor menu touch controls take some getting used to, but are not intrusive and are intuitive. Has lots of adjustments...and once adjusted for your particular PC, will produce glorious color. Plenty bright...I have the brightness turned down to 15% based on a DVD SMPTE adjustment tool. It's too bad that there's no height adjustment (only tilt) but that features costs $50+ these days.

Size Name: 23.6 Inches
Since I have two of these same monitors, I can compare the one I recently purchased yesterday with the other I bought late last year.

Image Quality:
Per same troubles noted below, the monitor I purchased yesterday (same model S24b300el) suffers from missing "Magic Angle" adjustment control and serious light bleed.

I compared, feature-to-feature, between my two "S24b300el" monitors. And, without explanation the new one purchased yesterday does not have the "Magic Angle" adjustment feature. Without MagicAngle, the newer monitor suffers from horrible contrast issues and an extremely tight (inflexible) viewing angle. From most views (including normal, sitting at desk) there is a terrible "washing" white band at bottom of monitor.

The craftsmanship is apparently cheaper (quality statement...):
- input panel at back of monitor feels like it's loosely held in from the circuit board. There's noticeable movement of the panel when I gingerly plugged in the HDMI cable. This wasn't the case on my older S24b300el. The new monitor isn't broken - the back panel just feels... of less quality. In my opinion I cannot trust the durability of the new monitor's connector input panel.

In summary:
The older S24b300el (last year's) is a fantastic deal. I'm keeping it.
The one I purchased yesterday is getting boxed up and returned to seller.

NOTE: There's nothing on the packaging indicating anything different between the two models. I initially thought I purchased the bargain version of the S24b300el. This isn't the case! Samsung appears to have dropped both features and quality, without notice, from this latest production run.

I bought this monitor to be able to hook into my laptop. I use the laptop and monitor for work, Office applications, web browser, and email. The monitor manages to display well these applications. There are no dead pixels. The monitor is very light which is helpful as I have to move around depending on whether other people are home during the day. The stand does not allow for adjusting the positioning of the monitor and there are no built in holes or such for hanging the monitor. For my laptop I needed a HDMI - DVI cable, which I had to purchase separately.

Thank you for purchasing the Samsung S23B300B monitor.

Please be informed that the monitor does have tilt adjustability.

Place the monitor on a flat sturdy surface, hold the base down firmly with one hand, grasp the top center of the bezel with your other hand and push firmly and gently back. This should tilt the monitor screen back. To tilt the monitor down, just push the bottom of the bezel gently and firmly back while pulling the top of the bezel towards you.

The image quality is fine, and the setup is easy. I don't sleep in the same room as my computer, so the light being on does not bother me at all.
