      Buying a monitor for the computer is always a challenge and it's something I just rather not do. Until I saw that a friend of mine had a large monitor and I decided to buy a widescreen monitor. This proved to be ideal for playing games but also the Internet. You can have multiple screens open at once. I find it fun to watch movies and surf the Internet. Besides the high quality of the display but also the price and brand are important. Ultimately I chose the Samsung Sync Master 2443bw because met all my requirements and has a good price and a good reputation.

      Samsung is a company founded in 1938 in Seoul, South Korea since 1980 and is a global player in selling its products. I read that Samsung is responsible for 20% of total export of South Korea so you can imagine how important the company is for the country. The company focuses mainly on electronic products such as computer components but is best known for its mobile phones and televisions. For me it's one of those brands you trust like when you hear the name of the brand. The name stands for me for quality.

      Box Contents and Installation
      ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----

      What you get in the box:

      - The 24inch Monitor (with pedestal)
      - DVI cable
      - D-sub cable
      - Power
      - CD (with drivers, manual and some programs)
      - Quick Setup Guide
      - Warranty Card
      - Cable Holder

      Everything you need to use is available and everything is neatly packed in the box.. The installation of the monitor is pretty simple but you must of course first put together the monitor. You can easily put the screen on the base and secure it with a screw and adjust the screen in height. The installation of the monitor is actually quite easy and without use of the drivers. After connecting the monitor via the DVI cable to the computer, he recognizes the monitor and lets you adjust the resolution.

      You can further customize settings by clicking the buttons on the monitor. You can adjust the contrast and brightness and a few other options which I do not have much sense of. I noticed that the monitor itself from the start is really well though and that perhaps the only thing what is necessary to adjust is the brightness. If you're like me and not know a lot about adjusting everything then you can use the included programs on the CD as the Natural Color and Magic Tune, which help you align the screen.

      Another program you might need is MagicRotation. You simply can rotate the screen by 90 degrees so in a pivot mode. I also never use it myself but it can be useful.

      The design
      ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----

      Why I chose this monitor? Also partly because of his appearance. The first thing I notice is that the screen is flat and it doesn't look to big, even though it has a 24 inch screen. By its black appearance it also fits well with my keyboard and the rest of the computer. But the screen is rectangular and has a simple classic look. The screen is on a swivel about 25 inches and sits firmly on the desk. Only when turning the screen it feels a bit loose at the top and the entire screen shakes as well.

      On the screen in the left corner you have the name SyncMaster 2443BW and you can find the dynamic contrast ratio and two stickers with TCO'03 and Energy Star. TCO'03 is a product certification for displays. In the middle bottom you see the brand name Samsung and right you will find the on / off button, setting buttons and a blue LED that is turned on when using the screen and it flashes when the monitor is in standby mode.

      Where I use the screen the most for? Actually for four things, namely Internet, Microsoft Word, games and watching movies / series. Especially for the last two I opted for a 24 inch display. The size of the screen and resolution are perfect for playing a racing game like Need For Speed! And is perfect to watch films with friends. He is perhaps not as good as a 'normal' television but it's good enough. I also use it for the Internet and Microsoft Word for example writing reviews. The screen is big enough for on the left to open Microsoft Word and on the right internet.

      There are a number of feature with which the monitor stands out from other monitors. The display has a low power consumption of 50 watts and has a power saving feature that the monitor only uses 30 watts. This has mainly to do with your settings for brightness and contrast. The lower you set this the less it consumes. In addition the monitor has a fast response time that reduces the blur of the screen. The dynamic contrast of 20,000:1 ensures better clarity and contrast. Finally the display has a TCO'03 certification and a Windows Vista certification. This means that the display has an optimal and is environmentally friendly.

      My opinion

      Choosing a new monitor is never easy but I had the same problem with choosing a new phone. You want to make the best choice and not later find out that there was a better one. I must say that the choice I made wasn't so bad in the end. First I have looked on the internet and listened to the advice of a friend of mine. Soon I came to the conclusion that I wanted a 24 inch screen mainly for the convenience of playing games and watching movies / series. It feels very nice but it's not too big and if you set your mouse to a more sensitive settings you don't have to go with your mouse over your whole desk the whole time.

      The monitor is neatly packed in the box and installation is very easy and you can use the standard settings. This is definitely ideal for me because I hate to spend hours to install everything. I did change the settings a little bit because I founded the screen too bright . With the included programs you can adjust the screen to your wishes. What is important to me is that the colors of the display looks good, it has a quick response and that he looks pretty good for a screen! Fortunately the price is also not too bad so definitely a good buy!
