Good: Amzing Brightness and contrast. really thin
Bad: The OSD sometimes decides not to work.
Comment: This it the best monitor i have ever owned, or in fact, ever used. the colours are amazing, and really stand out of the screen, the brightness makes the whites really bright, and the blacks are dark. I have used it with my PC, and connected my PS3 to it (this screen looks better than my 720p 50" plasma in my opinion).
However, to begin with, i set my PC up with dual screen, and for some reason the OSD wasn't very responsive, but after unplugging the second monitor, it worked fine, which seems really strange and probably a graphics card problem... only a minor gripe, seeing as I don't use dual screen, just wanted to see what it was like.
I love this monitor, definitely worth the Â£230
Good: I love the innovation and style.
Bad: Lack of connectivity.
Comment: I looked on PCWorld, listed as one of the retailers, they don't have any, but that's not my query.
For a 22" TV/Monitor thats boastful of beening and gaming/movie TV the lack of connectivity listed on PCWORLD is worring, no component? Why is everything HDMI now?
Component is just as good, it just doesn't send 5.1 audio, but not to include it is a big mistake, similarly to my LG Flatron W2286L, not all consoles are HDMI Xbox Arcade for example.
Also the amount of people using CapCard's like the HD PVR who are totally relient on Componenant like myself and growing gamers using equipment like that to upload to YouTube. It really is a shame because of its innovation and relatively low price compared to other 22/23" with lesser specs and the reason they won't get my money is down to as simply a thing as a component input.
Looks like the Samsung SyncMaster P2270 for me.
