5.0 out of 5 stars Great monitor... the key is calibration and proper setup, January 24, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung SyncMaster 226BW 22-inch LCD Monitor (Electronics)
I recently purchased a refurbished model and was a bit concerned about a couple reviews that said the color, contrast and brightness of the monitor wasn't very good. I use a Mac so I do have an advantage out of the box but upon turning this on, I could see where someone might feel there's a problem. However, I never just plug in a monitor and use it, the key is calibration and setting it up correctly for your use.

I initially toned down the brightness and contrast then set the other features to my liking. Once I did that, I went into Mac's built-in calibration program and walked through the steps to calibrate and configure the coloring and tones. The outcome is outstanding!

One thing I'll say about the refurb is that the monitor came in a generic box but Amazon did a good job of packing it so my initial concern about the integrity of the product was dismissed after I assembled and set it up.

Great product, you really can't go wrong with the refurb if you're looking to save a few bucks. Mac users will go nuts over this, absolutely a great buy and while I love Apple products, this monitor, especially for the price, beats the Apple monitor hands down. Oh, and by the way, a VESA mount is forthcoming and this has a very simple mounting pre-set holes in the back, ready to go... nice work Samsung!
