Samsung 2233RZ LCD Display Review

Experience ultra-realistic 3D with the Samsung
2233RZ 22” 2D and 3D ready LCD widescreen display. With a pair of NVIDA GeForce
3D Vision glasses, a compatible NVDIA graphics card and Windows Vista, you can
transform hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. The Samsung 2233RZ
renders more realistic experience than conventional displays by using a 120 Hz
signal, rather than the 60 Hz images that conventional 2D displays use, a
lightning-fast 3 ms response time GTG in 3D mode that eliminates trailing, and
20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio that provide realistic detail. The Samsung
2233RZ 22” 2D and 3D-ready LCD widescreen display.

The 2233RZ is the
first 120Hz LCD in the market. A true 120 Hz, not the interpolated. If the
graphics card is the impact, it really will show 120 frames per second in games,
with a key to the persistence you can call anywhere – talk about response time
on no sense – and better fluidity.

If you have a 3D card NVIDIA
recently, you can equip with wireless glasses to play. This is actually an old
technology that NVIDIA spring, taking advantage of advanced technologies for 10
years. Meanwhile, game quality has improved considerably, 3D cards have exploded
in power, the LCD have surpassed the CRT in grades. The glasses were made out
too early. Today: is perfect and simply bluffing! Any writing is passed over,
many users pass too. Truth: everyone was sawed wildly and was amused to shoot
down zombies even more frightening because in 3D, squealing tires on a racing
circuit, etc..

The first LCD 120 Hz & 3D

With a frequency of 120 Hz, the 2233RZ is designed to work with 3D
content (games/movies) on desktop with the use of 3D stereoscopic glasses. This
monitor is compatible with the GeForce 3D Vision Technology to NVIDIA to take
advantage of 3D stereoscopic over 350 games.

Response Time 3 ms (3D)

Rapid processing of images allows quality precision striking on the
screen when viewing digital movies and games. The response time is very fast and
digital images produces no effects after images or trace.

Dynamic Contrast

With Dynamic contrast the highest market, 20.000:1,
you’ll get sharp, vivid images with greater depth and greater intensity in color
to better appreciate the multimedia content.


Change the way you view separate images has never been easier. With
MagicBright, select the best mode to meet your viewing environment. Modes Text,
Internet, Game, Sports and Cinema and Custom settings allow you maximum

Requirement for using this

In 2D 120 Hz:

– Graphics Card recent and
powerful to ideally provide at least 120fps, and with an imperative DVI
– DVI-D Dual link (included with screen).

If you plug the
monitor into another graphics card not dual-link or a cable not dual-link, you
will have the display but you can not choose because the 120hz rate provided by
the connector is too low!

In 3D 60 Hz:

– NVIDIA GeForce 8
Series, 9 or GTX 200, (more powerful is better, the game requires a 3D power
much greater than 2D, see here for a preview performance)
– A DVI-D Dual
link (included with screen).
– System requirements: Microsoft Windows Vista
and 7, Intel Core 2 Duo/AMD Athlon X2 CPU or higher, 1GB memory (2GB
– Kit GeForce Vision 3D: 3D glasses and emitter NVIDIA (3D
glasses: recharging via USB and autonomy of 40 hours)


  • Reactivity excellent: the best so far
  • New gaming experience with NVIDIA 3D glasses
  • High Contrast
  • Guaranteed 0 dead pixel policy for 15 days
  • Rendering movies better than the average


  • Ergonomics low
  • TN = viewing angle less than death, black
  • Color rendering: no modes is good
