Pros LED backlight reduces power usage
Very low heat output
Colors are very accurate out of the box.
16:9 / 1080P native res is good for HD movies.
Excellent as a gaming monitor, tested only 3ms input lag vs. CRT
MagixLux feature is useful.
Cons Viewing angles a little narrow but this is expected of TN panel based monitors.
Backlight bleed a little worse than average due to extra slim design.
Black levels only "OK"
The monitors OSD menu is kind of a pain to navigate.
Summary Im really picky with image quality and im impressed with this monitors overall color accuracy, shadow details, lack of black crush, almost perfect white balance, although the gamma was to bright out of the box and I was only able to get it right by downloading a program called QuickGamma. No big deal.
The black levels are a little weak if your picky with that sort of thing, they look great most the time but in dark scenes in movies etc you can notice it, this is nothing new with LCDs so im not saying the PX2370 is worse than most in fact ive seen much worse.
Backlight bleed (on my unit at least) is noticeable when viewing a solid black screen on the very bottom of the screen and some on the top area of the screen, this can cause a slight blue tint in the black levels in darker scenes in movies / games in the areas of bleed.
Another site that reviewed this monitor mentions the bleed could be a little worse than average due to the extra slim design but its also worth noting backlight bleed is typical with TN panels and it bothers some people, it's not a deal breaker for me but worth noting.
I play a lot of games and this monitor is very responsive in fact I cant feel any lag in comparison to my CRT monitor, motion blur wise TN panels are the best for lack of ghosting and the PX2370 performs very well, its just a shame Samsung didnt make this a 120hz monitor, but as is its still very good for gaming.
I also really like the PX2370's MagicLux feature, I have it set on Medium sensitivity and it does a great job at auto adjusting the brightness depending on room lighting.
Pros Colors looked good right out of the box.
Magic Angle settings really do help with different angles for viewing.
Matte finish is great even with direct sunlight.
Cons Changing the settings take some getting use to.
More tilt adjustment with the stand would be nice.
It is a little wobbly when the table is bumbed.
Summary We compared the Samsung PX2370 with the Samsung P2570HD TV/Montior and the LG E2550 Monitor. We purchased the Samsung P2570HD because we thought we wanted a TV Tuner and it was a good price at a wholesale discount store. However, we stopped a the other store on the way home and purchased the Samsung PX2370 to compare. Both of these we very comparable and to us it was a toss up on which to keep. The P2570 was a little bigger but the PX2370 had a little bit better color. We finally decided we didn't want the TV tuner for personal reasons and so the Samsung P2570 was out. Then we picked up the LG E2350 to compare to the Samsung PX2370. The clincher for us was that we had the monitors set up together and were switching a movie back and forth between the two and the LG E2350 did not have as good of a picture at the PX2370. The PX2370 had vivid color and softer face tones.
I will say that the LG E2350 had more tilt in the stand which was nice, but the Magic Angle setting of the Samsung PX2370 were able to make up for the lack of tilt on the stand. However, it is kind of a pain to switch the setting on the PX2370, but not horrible. We also like the fact that the PX2370 has a three year parts and labor warranty whereas the other two only had a one year warranty.
We did purchase the PX2370 on sale and probably would have gone with one of the other two if it would not have been on sale. It was $10 more than the other Samsung monitor and $20 more than the LG. However, it just came out and in three months from now it will probably be a lot less.
Pros Although it lacks the higher contrast ratio of its predecessor, it produces vibrant hues, bright whites, and solid inky blacks.
Cons The black levels are no where near that of my plasma or even my phone, but that is to be expected. The stand is a bit flimsy. Not 3-D.
Summary Bought 3 of these for eyefinity, and games look AMAZING. From Dirt 2 to Metro 2033 to the Unigine Heaven benchmark, everything looks spectacular and blu-rays pop off the screen.
Pros looks good
decent picture quality
Cons very low build quality
no vga port
only 1 HDMI port
HDMI does not work with PS3
Summary WOW! Samsung had me good this time. I saw this product has good reviews online and bought 1 from BxxtBxy. To my horror, the first unit I got looks like it was being thrown around with tear up sticker and scratches all over it. I returned it and received a second unit. It was a little better with fewer scratches. Once I turn it on, I realized a big clouded spot on the right side of the screen only visible if look from an angle. The HDMI does not work with PS3. I have to hook it up to the DVI port. *** is that? My older NEC does not have this problem. At this price it is way too much for a sub par product. I have had a few samsung before, but this will be my last. I am going with Asus or NEC.
Pros Great display, easy to hook up.
Cons The monitor blanks out after 30 minutes and to date there is no known fix. The computer has to be put in sleep mode and then woken back up for the PX2370 to function.
Summary I am connected to a Sony Vaio. I am an advanced user. I've checked every possible setting there is that might cause this. I thought it was a defective monitor so I exchanged it for a new one. Nope, still blanked out after 30 minutes. Samsung said to call Sony support because it's known a compatibility issue. Sony basically gave me the runaround. Depending on who I spoke with, it was and it wasn't a compatibility issue. Sony advanced tech support said it is a known incompatibility issue, we can't help you, return the monitor. According to Sony, the problem is Samsung does not want to pay Microsoft for the software to support this piece of hardware. How unfortunate, great monitor otherwise.
