This TV was purchased to meet the needs of a tech savvy college student. It has a plethora of inputs to make it a versatile HDTV/Monitor. This TV also has excellent quality in other departments.

In the visual department, the 1080p quality is phenomenal. I haven't tested anything below Full HD because I don't have anything at those resolutions unless I dumb down the resolution. At the default settings, the picture quality is crisp and detailed. It also has a response time of 5ms which allows for quick movements in video games. Picture-in-Picture also makes a return on this Samsung model, and it works as expected.

Onto the Audio Department, I at first experienced volume issues but I soon realized that the issue was not with the B2230HD, but with the volume settings on the computer that was hooked up. So make sure that you have all the volume settings at max on your equipment if your testing your set-ups audio. The TV also has different audio settings that tailor to what your are watching. For example, if you are watching a presidential speech and the background is a little loud, go into the easy access tools menu and change the audio settings to speech and the persons voice will be amplified from the background. For the size of the TV, the audio is awesome.

As an avid gamer, I am very pleased with this TV. 9.8/10

I ordered this primarily as a computer monitor with the option of adding TV to it at some point. It looks great now, but for some reason the default settings on VGA leave you with 'edge enhancement' and no 'auto-off when none of the inputs have a signal', so if you have one of these monitors I recommend a thorough examination of the settings. Settings are input-specific, so you may find yourself redoing them and, as a definite downside, sometimes things are not adjustable while an input is selected(e.g. backlight has been fixed for some inputs). To itemize my thoughts, there's the following:

1)Picture in picture lets you have tv in a little box on your monitor - you can e-mail through advertisements without switching back or missing a beat
2)Fast refresh rate, 5ms response, 1920x1080, crisp and clean picture, and good color/brightness control options
3)"Eco Solution" screen settings measured at the outlet, mostly white on the screen:
-9.5 watts in 'picture off/audio only' mode
-26 watts off, bright
-21 watts low setting, pretty bright
-19 watts medium setting, dimmer
-17 watts high setting, even dimmer
4)Sleep timer (combines particularly well with picture-off mode on audio-only channels, but see cons #5)
5)Settings are saved in whichever picture mode you adjusted them, so you can have a few presets for each input.
6)Good price for the quality(particularly good if on sale)
7)Tool-free assembly

1)Only one adjustment on the stand; tip the screen back or forward - no height, rotation, or side-tilt.
2)Backlight bleed is sometimes apparent at the top and bottom.

I had the opportunity to do a side by side between this and a 22" Vizio E220VA viewing a few different stations all in HD and one in SD. While the difference in SD was slight, HD was very noticeable!
Low and behold, the Vizio excelled in the picture quality department. Samsung is one of the most popular, if not the most popular LCD TV manufacture (notice I didn't say LED TV), but to my surprise Vizio outperformed in the detail department.
Facial detail is lacking. Graphics and text is outstanding, but take a look at the detail on peoples faces or anything closeup and it gives the 'clay faces' look. Almost like the video was 'rolled off' only under certain circumstances. Really hard to describe this, but it was very noticeable.

I also have a 32" Samsung (not a TN panel like this) and the above holds true there also. That was my second LCD set (I have and have DLP RPTV's as my main sets) and just thought it was something that was typical of LCD TV's until I made this side by side.

1. 1080p panel, ideal for PC displays, but see below
2. Able to store channel memories for both OTA & CATV channels without deleting a previous channel list Why can't all manufactures do this??
3. Easy mode switch from 'Air' to 'Cable',
4. Unlike their non Business line of smaller sets, this has separate composite and component inputs. You don't give up one for the other,
5. Also unlike their 5000 regular TV series, this has no stupid, cost cutting 'adapter' cable dongle for the component/composite input, which is a huge source of problems (see the reviews of those sets here on Amazon),
6. Extensive menu entries for video & audio including ISF calibration for video & equalizer for audio,
7. Front mounted controls,

Very conveniant 2 in 1 (computer monitor and television). Be careful, the holes for the wall fixation might not have their threads to receive the screws. Otherwise, I am still very pleased with this product.
