Dell S2330MX and S2230MX Video Transcript
It seems you can't do a rolled up HDMI cord though hitting a thin LED-based monitor these days. And, believe you in me, I film my fair share of HDMI cords around here usually at my producers head. I mean how am I gonna keep here in line, right. I mean I only hate her about 60 percent of the time anyway. Look the point is, she's usually fine. Oh, hey Jaime. Oh yeah, I was just like practicing. You know, setting up some shots and stuff. Yeah, yeah. Hey, have I told you that you're the best producer? Really, you're the best. Anyway, I'm Eric Franklin and today we're taking a first look at yet another thin LED-based monitor, the Dell S2330MX and Dell S2230MX. They're pretty much the same monitor at sight from the 1-inch screen size differences. The Dells are typical LED-based monitors with thin profiles. Unlike most LED monitors though, they don't include HDMI ports but luckily it come with DVI to HDMI adapters. The foot stand is this narrow heel like circle that doesn't do a good job for keeping the monitor stable. For overall support, we get a 10-degree back tilt but no other ergonomic options. They also include most options you normally see in a Dell OSD including several presets and red, green, and blue color options. Navigation through isn't as smooth as usual with Dell's thanks mostly to the somewhat awkward button placement which is on the bottom instead of the side where it is on most Dell monitors. We've not had a chance yet to run it through its four phases but upon initial viewing we also see a definite green push and movies which also carried over to its performance in games. The 22-inch version is available for about $220, but the 23-inch version coming in at $250. These prices are a lot cheaper than most monitors of this style and Dell definitely saved by not including HDMI and while the performance isn't really beating. It's nice to see a mainstream vendor like Dell's supporting budget monitor markets with monitors of this size. Check out my full review for more details. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin and this has been a first look at the Dell S2230MX and S2230MX.
The Samsung SyncMaster B2330HD takes some calibrating before it performs well, but is low priced and offers lots of features.
Dell's Inspiron One 2330 all-in-one doesn't take any great innovative leaps, but sometimes all you need is a basic computer. This is that PC.
The Sony MFM-HT75W is a snazzy, well-designed dual-purpose LCD that will please those who want a display that can work and play simultaneously.
The Lenovo ThinkVision L2440x is a well-designed 24-inch LCD monitor that's great for movies and games, but the display (and its LED backlighting) is too expensive for the performance and features it supplies.
The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 is a well-designed monitor with good performance that skimps on connection options.
The Acer T230H is a well-designed touch-screen monitor with disappointing entertainment performance.
With its low price, awesome performance, and many features, the Dell SP2309W is a great deal for a 23-inch monitor.
The Dell SX2210 is a well-priced 16:9 monitor with high performance and enough features to satisfy most.
If you can get over the obvious design flaws, the UTStarcom CDM-105 is a basic and well-performing cell phone for Sprint.
Though its design is uninspired, the Samsung SPH-A640 is a functional and well-performing cell phone for midrange users.
Dell S2330MX 23-inch Ultra-Slim monitor Review
The good: The Dell S2330MX has a thin, aesthetically pleasing design, well-placed connections, and good overall performance. The fact that this comes at such a low price is icing on the cake.
The bad: The monitor has flimsy build quality, a very unstable foot stand, and its OSD navigation isn't as smooth as what we've come to expect from Dell.
The bottom line: The Dell S2330MX is a well-designed general purpose monitor with a pleasing aesthetic at a great price.
