Samsung Syncmaster 2243BW 22-inch LCD Display Review
Samsung Syncmaster 2243BW 22-inch LCD Display Review - PCSTATS
All widescreen LCD monitors are not created equal, and unfortunately this leads to pretty confused looking consumers as they try to understand why identical screen sizes can differ in price by hundreds of dollars.

Can you adjust the LCD Display?

One of the nicer of Samsung LCD monitors is their adjustability. Samsung equips almost ever LCD it sells with the same fully adjustable stand, called a HAS stand. It allows the screen to tilt backward 25° and forward 5°, rise up 80mm and pivot to the left or right 180degrees. This particular stand incorporates 90 degree screen rotation, so the 2243BW can be turned from a 22" wide screen to a 22" tall screen in a few seconds. Little effort is required to make most adjustments.

The extreme range of adjustment possible with the Samsung 2243BW's stand are illustrated below.

Vertical height adjustment of 80mm.

The 22" wide screen tilts 25° back, 5° forward. Given the rather poor 160° vertical viewing angles we found ourselves making this adjustment quite often to get the best visual picture.

The 22" panel also rotates from a landscape view into portrait. The supplied MagicRotation software facilitates adjusting the screen image to match panel orientation. The 2243BW monitor rests on a circular stand that gives it good stability, and also hides a lazy-suzan. Samsung's 2243BW screen won't rotate around like the Exorcist endlessly, just 360°. Rubber grips on the base ensure the stand doesn't slide around and mar the desktop.

Software and image quality tests are up next.
