This christmas, i am planning to get a Samsung 226BW for christmas, it had nice contrast ratio, superb size, superb ms, the colors and the design is nice.

But what caught my eyes are the "Versions" for these monitors.

As i recall, there are 2 versions....A and S series...

I think that the S series are better than the A series?

To be honest...i didn't know there were different monitor types..

Anyone else got extra information on this? :/

Thank you very much.

Regards,

Yes I've read a lot about people complaining that their A series wasn't as sharp or suffer from light bleed unlike the S series which are made by Samsung. But after investigating a whole lot I found out that even the S panels can sometimes be this way. I read of people saying that the monitor is probably calibrated wrong and that there are tools for optimized calibration. I remember reading a lot of this stuff on Newegg, you should check it out.

This site seems to explain it all. http://tinyurl.com/yqerpv Have a nice Christmas!

well....i read all of it and it gave me a thought that i should get a S panel..

But the article was posted in may 9 2007...would the problem be solved by now?or is it still in the circulation?(A panels)

Well it really doesn't matter which one you get since you can calibrate it if you don't like the colors, contrast etc. It seems that there's no warranty that the S series will give you the perfect calibration.
Unfortunately, this method isn’t 100 % reliable. Two readers showed us two exceptions with one having an S but with an AU Optronics panel on the inside and another with an A, while it had a Samsung. Therefore, you have to take this a step further and have the screen itself to display its identity. You don’t need a screwdriver, but rather an odd combination of keys displays the info via a hidden menu.


In page 3 it shows you the easy calibration method, and it appears to work exactly as is supposed to. They even give you their calibrated profile for download.

But yes try and get the S panel to save yourself the trouble. Remember to keep that site on bookmarks just in case. Have a nice holiday.

I have a "C" series I think it is. I try not to go buy a large amount of reviews. Unless they are all negative. I usually just buy and try. I went to CC to get my 226BW and I am in love with it. I highly recommend.
