Samsung 226BW FTW!!! - Page 4

post #31 of 36
It is a gorgeous monitor (I have the same one just in different guts as 2232BW) and I would have loved if it had those external analog inputs but I guess I'll have to find a transcoder. Anyhow the glossy one is mine not the 226BW or 226CW which makes it hard to photograph lol.

Just picked up one of these. $319 with free shipping at the Egg.
Gotta say my first few hours with it has been rapture! Speaking of rapture, been playing Bioshock and I couldn't be more impressed. Out does my shatty old Mitsu CRT and then some. Noticed some very minor backlight bleed on the top in completely black situations. It isn't a big deal to me at all. Can hardly notice it.

Of course I have no idea what panel I have (S,C,etc) but hooked up MagicTune and am really liking the Dynamic Contrast setting. Extremely sharp!

Thumbs up on my end!

Look on the back, remove the panel hiding the inputs and cables, and look at the last letter. It will either be A, S, or C.

The new ones aren't branded. As far as I've read, ever since the big controversy hit, Samsung has stopped producing any way to tell what panel you have.

Does the CW has all the A, C and S panels? Or just one panel the S one.
