With the SyncMaster 2233RZ, Samsung is bringing a gaming monitor in the upper class to the market. It is not just the lightning-fast response time of just 3 ms and the high dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000:1 that make the glossy 22-inch model attract the attention of gaming fans.

The monitor supports image frequencies of 120 Hz. Thus, the Samsung model is ready for 3D gaming. However, this requires the Windows Vista operating system, a GeForce graphics card of the latest generation as well as special shutter glasses.

With a resolution of 1.680 x 1.050 pixels, the Samsung model is one of the 16:10 models which are becoming less common. Our review should show whether or not the lofty introductory price of almost 400,00 Euro is justified.

Scope of supply

Despite the very compact dimensions of the box 60 x 44 x 12 (W x H x D), the monitor inside is securely packed and well padded between two pieces of Styrofoam. As well as the 22-inch monitor, the box also contains the base in two parts, a DVI and a power cable, CD containing software, a cable routing device, a cloth for cleaning the monitor, a quick start guide and the guarantee card.

On the left, the box and on the right, the accessories included.

A practical illustrated assembly guide is printed on the inside of the box. In order to begin using the monitor, the pillar of the base must be secured using a screw in the base plate. Afterwards, the screen is pushed onto the hollow in the base until it locks into place. You should not be too ginger about this, since it requires a considerable amount of strength to bring the screen and the base together.

The assembly guide is printed on the inside of the box.
