Eyefinity. samsung: 3 x 2233RZ VS MD230X3

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have had his Samsung syncmaster 2233RZ 120hz monitor for a while now. And i am thinking this is about the best monitor i have had. It has amazing 3ms responsetime.

I am comparing these to a md230X3 in performance.

A 2233RZ costs me about 300$ each.

A MD230X3 costs about 2500$ for the set.

It looks like the 2233RZ is beating the MD230 in performance.

Why the hell are the MD230 So expensive? So expensive just in cause of the thin bezzels??

What abot modding 3 x 2233RZ into a eyefinity instead? will this be better?

The MD's are more expensive for a couple of reasons, the thin bezels and the fact that they come with a decent monitor stand. Monitor stands can be exuberantly expensive.

Also found the MD setup for $1800 with free shipping. Where did you get $2500?

I bet this is not free chipping to norway.

In norway we have to pay 25% tax of the items we buy internationally.

So the cheapest price we have for this in norway is about 15000 NOK = about 2500 USD.

If you find any with cheap international shipping let me know.

I did read some place that eyefinity would force down each monitor to 60hz anyway. So thats no use for the 2233rz other than the responsetime
