Introducing the Stylish and Eco-Friendly High Performance B2230H 21.5″ Full HD LCD Monitor from Samsung! The build quality of the monitor far outclasses most others in its price range and the image quality is just as outstanding for the price.
With a response time of 5ms, you can be sure that your B2230H will perform perfectly, even in the fastest moving scenes. This stunning, seamless motion imaging presents movies, games, and internet streamed content with precision and without the motion judder, blurring, and ghosting that can occur on a slower monitor, allowing you to enjoy a completely immersive viewing experience
Some people will be wondering whether a 5ms response time is something to worry about when there are models with 2ms response times available for only a little bit more. The answer is no! The Samsung B2230H tested was every bit as responsive as most 2ms panels and Samsung have really good response time compensation algorithms.
The differences make all the difference. That’s why the Samsung ultra-high 70,000:1 Dynamic Contrast ratio automatic backlight adjustment creates deeper, more dramatic dark tones and brighter, more striking light tones. Now you can enjoy images that echo reality with rich, vivid colour and brilliant natural intensity. When it comes down to the details, conventional monitors simply pale in comparison.
Magic Eco also makes saving energy easy. It adjusts Samsung monitor’s brightness based on how much energy you want to save. You have four energy saving options to choose from: 100%, 75%, and 50% power consumption as well as ‘power saving off’. If Magic Eco is turned off, you still enjoy the option of using Samsung’s Magic Bright feature, engineered to let you manually adjust the screen’s brightness. Take the effort out of saving energy and take control with Magic Eco.
Enhance images your way using Samsung’s advanced ColourEffect feature. Open your eyes to a completely customised viewing experience as you play with photographic effects that match your mood. Choose from Aqua, Sepia, Green and Greyscale to interact with your display in a whole new way – namely, yours.
If you’re after something a bit larger we can also recommend the Samsung B2330H which offers the same great build quality, image quality and features with a larger 23-inch screen and HDMI connectivity.
