Samsung 2233SWPlus

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — yasi8h @ 1:52 am

Its been a very exciting month! After doing more than the average (from my standards 🙂 ) amount of research on the subject of buying a lcd monitor. I settled on the 2233SW. It was one of best options i had, or so i think 🙂 As for now i am very happy with this one. It looks grate, both the finish  and the picture quality. But then its not like i have used a lot of lcd panels. Almost all of the monitors that caught my attention are included in the following spreadsheet, with their key specs and prices in the local markets. Might be helpful to anyone who is looking in to buying a lcd monitor these days.

You won’t be able to see the table here in full because of the layout of the site, so find it here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tN-CeMAoc3qpsQia62azxgQ&output=html

  1. Wish you had done this a few months ago. I also evaluated all the options and then bought an Acer V203H. I am very happy with it but I see that the Samsung is cheaper.

    • you probably got it from metro..? if yes you probably got a better warranty with it 🙂 so the little difference in price is ok. i think.

  2. why did you go for 2233SW instead of 2333SW? Is it because of the price?

    Comment by shabith ishan — October 6, 2009 @ 6:47 pm

    • I wanted to go for that but when i was so ‘high’ on buying this, 2333 was out of stock (at one of the places where it was available for a reasonable price). so i went with the 22. Some shops had it but their prices were too high for me ( i didn’t feel like paying so much for another 1.5 inches).

      • sorry for bothering you again, I am planning to buy the same monitor and my vendor is quoting 10k. How is the monitor output.

        Comment by vinayak — November 4, 2009 @ 8:18 am

      • wow! 🙂 thats a grate price. yeah i am all satisfied with what i got. btw are you from india? or SL? or…?

        Comment by yasi8h — November 4, 2009 @ 1:45 pm

      • I am from India. Only after going through your blog did I realise that I was comparing rates across countries 🙂

        Comment by vinayak — November 5, 2009 @ 3:29 am

      • 😛 my mistake i should have noted that all the prices listed above are in LKR (Sri Lankan Rupees). according to google 10K INR = 24 LKR so i think its a ok price. but because you are in a different country(!!!) market prices would be different. so better ask around before you buy.
