Manufacturer: Samsung

Today, Samsung is one of the world’s leaders in the field of electronics. Founded in 1938, they have built quite a reputation and earned the trust of their followers, especially in the realms of mobile phones, displays, audio players and household appliances. We have taken a look at quite a number of Samsung products in the past, but today we get a firsthand experience with the new SyncMaster P2350.

Samsung has always been one of the main competitors in the LCD monitor and HDTV market, and the P2350 has a feature set geared towards high definition. With features like full 1920×1080 HD resolution and their Touch of Color styling, will the P2350 be worth the price tag?

  2. “This 23.6″ monitor is bound to be a good purchase.”

    is this a 23.6, or 23 in, display area?

  3. After two days i got a dead pixel (green dot), registered a complaint. Tech ppl said panel has to be changed. After nearly two months still they couldn’t get a panel. Service is very poor.

    Where did you buy it from? You should have returned it claiming you were not happy with the quality if the monitor.
    However, some stores will not accept a return unless there is a certain percentage of failed pixels.

  5. I was able to find a HDMI to DVI-D adapter for $7. This can now be connected to a HDMI cable or a DVI cable (depending on your need) It is good to keep the DVI-D because sometimes I hook up my PC to this monitor. Otherwise, my PS3 is using it.

    This isn’t exactly a disadvantage.

  6. I bought a P2350 monitor a couple months ago. Was very satisfied until it began to shut off by itself for no apparent reason. I would not recommend buying this monitor.

  7. We can’t knock the entire line for one or two bad units. How is the colour Gamma? does this unit surpass the quality of the 2 year old XL20? anyone know?

    I received my brand new Samsung P2350 monitor 2 days ago and is disappointed all the time. It shuts of without warning and then you are lucky if you get it on again. Most of the time you can not even get it on. Looks like this is a trend!!!

  9. @ Jacques:

    Wow, I’m having the exact same issues with mine!

    It was fine for the first few weeks, then the random shutting down began.

    I sent it in for repair and two weeks later it came back scratched to hell and the problem resumed within twenty minutes of powering it on!

    I’ve sent it in again, although I’m not the least bit optimistic.

    Avoiding Samsung products in the future. Their “service” is horrendous.

  10. I also have a P2350. It works great most of the time. Every now and then it will go black screen for a few seconds and comes right back on. I guess I should contact them after reading the above comments.

  11. I bought a Samsung P2350 less than 90 days ago. Mine started to shut down on its own as well. Today, it finally quit. The store that I purchased it at replace it since it happened within 90 days. its disappointing to find out that so many people are having the same problem. I have researched other sites on the internet that seem to have quite a few other folks with the same problem.

    I was leery of buying a Samsung product since I have never had very good luck with their products in the past. Every one I talked to told me Samsung’s technology and quality had improved quite a bit. This problem is indicative of the problems I’ve had with their products in the past. Luckily, this time I purchased an extended warranty.

  12. My SyncMaster P2350 will shut down by itself. This is infrequent at this stage. It used to come back on after a couple of seconds but last time I needed to press the power button. My standard warrantee is 3 years so I’m leaving it at this stage because the problem could be difficult to demonstrate – but ther is a Problem Samsung!

  13. I recently bought a P2350 as well, and like others I’ve had some problems with it turning itself off, and its less than 30 days old! it has become unusable now due to this, thankfully I have a 3 year warranty, though I’m hoping for a refund as this sounds like a production/inherent defect

  14. I bought my two Samsung P2350 monitors in the late october 2009 and hooked them up on dualview, it works very fine even now and I have not experienced any of those malfunktions yet.. Guess I should be lucky.

  15. I bought my Samsung p2350 about 2 weeks ago. picture is awesome until mine started to shut off after the 3rd day of use. I read some reviews and the negatives of this monitor and gave the benefit of the doubt. then till 2 days ago it did it again? I hate returning stuff but i sure dont wanna commit too much on this monitor if this problem persist. love samsung but not issues.

  16. @ JR:
    I as well bought this monitor off Overstock.com Samsung p2350. It worked for about 4 days then started randomly shutting itself off. I would suggest going with a Sony brand or LG, read up on reviews before you buy :-P

  18. i bought this monitor last week, no turning off issues about which many are complaining,it seems brightness is less compared to my last monitor, even on highest brightness everything looks dark on my last monitor win7 looked stunning but now it looks somewhat dull though nothing big, also when watching movies the black does not appear very deep though much better than my last monitor perhaps there is something wrong about my setting.
    p.s the dynamic contrast is more an irritation than beneficial seeing your screen constantly change brightness will annoy u.

    Buy this monitor if u want to get a large screen at cheap, if u are after quality look elsewhere

  19. I’ve seen a lot of issues with the product, and I have to add that the touch sensitive buttons are heat activated, not touch. So do you think it’s possible it is overheating on you? maybe you have it in too warm of a room that goes above body temp?

    Also I don’t see how the brightness would make everything look dark, since I see most people saying it’s too bright and are using half brightness or less! you’ve gotta calibrate your monitor.

    Although, I could see how anything ‘touch sensitive’ with no actual buttons could fail and cause problems. they should have added a tactile as a backup.

    anyways, I’ve been thinking about getting this monitor, but I definitely don’t want to have it shut off on me, and it seems like quite a few people have had this problem, so I’m hesitant.

    You also hear good things about this monitor, x-bit labs is one that says good things and they are very thorough/reputable.

  20. <I bought a refurbished P2350 and after 5 days it turned itself off.
    The power button was unresponsive so I unplugged the monitor and replugged it in. The power button worked
    but the monitor powered down within seconds. After unplugging the monitor for few minutes the problem disappeared.

    So far the monitor is running without incident…..

  21. i have the same monitor it works just fine no turning off or anything (except if i leave it alone for awhile but im pretty sure thats the monitors screensaver)

  22. I have had this monitor for a few months now and never had any problems with it.

  23. I have four of these things and guess what… 2 have died on me, tho it took 1 and a half years. At first they would just go black and I could get them back, then they became totally unresponsive. I doubled checked to make sure this wasn’t a video card issue. It’s not. Don’t get these monitors. There are definitely people who have no problems with them, but as I have four and two are crappy, it makes me think the product sucks

  28. @ adriano_c:
    I experience the same problem on my P2350 (Shutting off, self activating menu, etc.) This was caused by a USB connected Keyboard light standing close to the (very sensitive) menu keys. Don’t know if the problem was caused by warming up from the monitor keys or electric interference but when I moved the light away the problem was gone!

  29. I had same problem with my samsung p2350. but now it is ok
    try one of this:
    1 switch to dvi cable if you have the possibility. this didn’t t work for me but it reduced the numbers of shutting of monitor.
    2 keep minimum 10 degrees C temperature in your room. Most of shutting downs where under 10. see manufacturer manual.
    3 you may have a problem with the electrical system in your house. Change the electrical plug with new one. you may not have a functional ground so call an electrician to solve you. also I recommend you to use an UPS (Uninterruptible power supply).

  30. @ Ger:
    It is caused by electric system in your house. you do not have the ground. keep your hand on your wash machine, or another electrical an you will get a low shook.
