More like marketing BS. :)

Samsung tends to use crappy panels on most of their 22' monitors. Read the [H] forums, lots complain about Blue color dominance and Backlight Bleeding with Samsung monitors.

I highly recommend the HP w2207, it's a glossy monitor that has some very nice colors, looks amazing in games and movies.

That was the 226BW C model which is true because I own a C model but with a custom ICC profile its fixed but not the bad back bleeding issue. The S & A models didn't have issues.

Vista has a problem holding the ICC profile, you will need this to make it work for every boot up.
