"Excelent quality on my 226BW "C" panel. Bright and accurate colours."5.0 starson by Mystro
Pros: Bright and crisp with accurate colours. Easy and quick menu.
Cons: Height adjustment would have been nice but not necessity.
Summary: After looking at several 22" monitors, I found the Samsung 226BW to be the standout. It is bright and the colours are beautiful. I had to do some minor adjustments and found the "Custom" mode with the "MagicColor" turned off looked best for me. I do like the "Dynamic Contrast" for movies in a bright room.
I recieved a "C" panel (build date March 2007)and performance is the same as the "S" panel models from my observations. I believe most of the "S" "A" and "C" panel comparison is Techno-Geek paranoia. I am sure it is posible to get a bad monitor regarless where it is made. I could'nt be happier with my Samsung. With a Samsung $20.00 rebate and a sale from Dell, I paid around $250 plus shipping. I gave it a "10 Rating because... Nothing twice or three times that amount of $$$ comes close to the performance of 2ms 3000:1 Dynamic contrast of the Samsung 226BW.
