Bottom line Suffice to say then that with the looks, features and performance, the Samsung 226BW is definitely our pick of the 22" bunch. However, another Samsung’s display that gives it some competition is the 215TW.This is still one of our favourite units for...
Initially we thought Samsung’s 226BW might rise above the pack in the 22-inch category. This LCD boasts 16.7 million colors, suggesting superior 8-bit technology. But when we did side-by-side testing next to the Hanns.G model, we were mightily surprise...

Bad Limited ergo options, poor, vertical offaxis, soso image.
At $429.99, the Samsung SyncMaster 226BW is a reasonable value for a 22-inch monitor. If you dont mind some minor performance issues and the lack of extra features, it makes a fine big-screen display for those on a budget. The 226BW is sty...

As I wrote in one of my earlier reviews dedicated to 27” and 30” monitors, the transition from CRT to LCD technology made monitors with really large screen diagonals available not only in a financial but even in a purely technical sense.This t...
Bottom line The conclusion to my today’s tests is not an encouraging one. There is none among the half a dozen 22” monitors I have tested that does not have this or that serious drawback.First of all, monitors with this screen diagonal are currently produ...
