Hi guys, I'd like a new monitor and I thought I should ask your opinion.
I was looking at these two Samsung LED models the other day:

Samsung BX2335 23", Wide, Full HD, DVI
Samsung S23A350H 23", Wide, Full HD, HDMI, Rose Black

Which one is better ? I'm guessing they only work for 60Hz, I'm kinda worried about eye strain.

This one is a bit more expensive, but if it's totally worth it I might go for it : Samsung XL2370 23", Wide, Full HD, DVI, HDMI

Is LED worth it ? I'd like one that works well at 75Hz.
I prefer Samsung but I'm open to suggestions of course :D. Thanks in advance !

  1. If you want a Samsung with great image quality in that price range, may I suggest the F2380:

  2. Thanks a lot for the replies ! Both look great, unfortunately I cant find the F2380 here (I'm from Romania), and the T24A350 is too expensive here :( (400$).

    A friend of mine has an IT shop and he said he could bring in these models:

    Samsung BX2335 23", Wide, Full HD, DVI
    Samsung S23A350H 23", Wide, Full HD, HDMI, Rose Black

    But I don't know which one is better. The BX2335 is more popular, though S23A350H has both VGA and HDMI connectors. I also like the look of the S23A350H more. :D

    I've also seen some good reviews about Philips 232EL2SB. Out of these 3, which one do you recommend ?
  3. The template that you filled in had a place to specify your country of origin. Why did you remove that? When you specified your budget in dollars, I figured you were in the US.

    I'm sorry to hear that the F2380 isn't available for you, but the three monitors you mention look like they'd be about the same in terms of performance and image quality, so if you have an aesthetic preference, go with that.

    Sorry, yes, I removed some of the fields, guilty as charged :D. I wanted to compress the post a bit. It was a mistake clearly :D.

    I'll go with the S23A350H then probably. I'll let you know how it is.

    Thanks again for your quick answer, have a great day !
