It has an amazing picture quality that ourhigh-end users appreciate at a price that our cost conscious consumers alsolike,” said Doug Albregts, vice president, Information Technology Division,Samsung Electronics America Inc.


Whether you’re watching a Blu-Ray movie or video clipsonline, the XL2370’s LED edge-lit backlight performs at 1080 HD quality andyields a brighter range of colors than typical CCFL backlights.

The XL2370’s sleek design features a Samsung Touch of Colormatte black finish, which appears liquid black in ambient light with a richcharcoal gray gradation in brighter light. A crystal-like acrylic neck andbezel trim give the impression that the monitor is floating and can also betilted up to 25 degrees.

That's pretty nice! Especially with only 26 watts of energy consumption. Still, I really wish they'd get rid of the large bezels, what with Eyefinity coming along and all.

I totally agree Lev; I want the bezels need to be shrunk down to the smallest area too. If a monitor had an ultrathin bezel, I wouldn't care if it was eight inches deep.

Still, this is a relatively nice monitor. My current monitor is a Samsung, and it's been great.


My local PC store has this monitor is stock for NZ$699, and they said they've nearly sold out their first shipment!


Eyefinity is working on a fix on the bezel alignment issue so I wouldn't be too worried if that's the only major issue with this monitor. As EyeFinity gains more traction in the public's eye, I think we'll start seeing smaller and smaller bezels.


Found a cnet review for this monitor. 

Cons: The Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 lacks ergonomic features and its base is quite wobbly.

Errr...I think that makes it a good review.


I'll pass on it...I'll wait for the XL2370 HD. It comes with a HDTV Tuner. That is what I am waiting for. If it does not appear by DEC, I'll just have to find a brick and mortar reseller store that sells the P2370 HD which is awesome as well.


This article doesn't mention how much screen size you get for your $300. By the part number, I am guessing 23". Still not a bad deal at all...


I'd like two of them, mounted to the wall in front of me to clear up some desk space please.


I'd buy it if it had no bezel. I think it would be reasonable at $250 as is though.

And yeah, based on the Model #, I'd wager it's a 23" screen.
