REVIEW: Samsung 226BW Part 6
The user can choose from the six preconfigured image settings and one user-defined image setting by using the buttons. Text, Internet, Game, Sport, Film and Optimum contrast cannot be changed in the preconfigured modes. Only the settings of the user-defined image mode can be saved and can then be selected from the list.
Since the dynamic contrast is definitely not suitable for every image situation, the user can easily and quickly switch between the different image modes by accessing the menu directly. Anything else would not be user-friendly.
Direct modification of the brightness
The button calls up and allows the user to change the brightness settings. This setting is blocked for modification in the Optimal Contrast mode and the message "not available" appears when the user tries to modify the settings. The user can choose the image source manually with the button. The button automatically restores the Samsung 226BW to the input signal in analogue mode.
The button calls up the menu of the 22-inch monitor. From here, the user can navigate the various options with the and buttons. The button is used to select options and the button brings you back to the menu again and also closes the OSD.
If you wish to protect your image settings from unauthorised access, you need to press the menu button for five seconds. This locks all settings except for brightness and contrast and direct selection of the image modes. The settings can be unlocked in the same way.
Here are some pictures and information on the screen menu of the Samsung 226BW. The settings you see are those we calibrated ourselves.
