was an S panel
How can you tell that it was an "S" Panel???????????
we tested it side by side with mine. and mine is an S panel OSD menu and sticker on the back.
thats because before samsung removed the info they had only C panels
my mate bought one from there hoping it was an S and it was a C panel he returned it got another.. another C panel
god i've just bought one of these!!
time to pray for a miracle
Bought mine off Slogan so should be fine!
Just got it and it's awesome!!!
Quite an improvement over the belinea i was using!
me too very impressed
I'm hoping to put up a proper "gamers review" of this monitor shortly, trying to see it in every type of game first.
Hello, just recieved mine today and i am pleased with it thus far. However I have noticed some wierd ghosting issues. The first one was caused when the RTA option is enabled... It leaves a little white trail behind moving objects. When it is disabled it disapears however the ghosting is noticeable... Is there a way to fix this, a firmware update etc, new drivers? Or is it just the monitor?
Mine does the opposite of yours with the RTA setting. With it off ghosting is very apparent. However, with it turned on i honestly notice no ghosting at all.
Are you using a d-sub or DVI connection?
no no no... the ghosting is apperant with the RTA option off but on some games a white ghosting can sometimes be seen if RTA is switched on. I am using DVI errr... digital is all I know lol
I'm sure this issue came up much earlier on in this thread? by any chance is it a C panel? I didnt get the whole drift of the problem but it sounded like the overdrive is screwed or acting strangely on some of them? faulty?
This was the first thing i checked on mine and i was pretty relieved.
I assume there is still no definite answer to where the unlabeled panels are from?
Or if they are all the same or not.
Looks like that's the case - i was just fortunate enough to get a good one!
When they're good they are excellent though!
Just to be sure, the whole "panel problem" thing only affects the 22 inch versoin of the monitor right?
I received my 206BW today and I am very pleased with it, but if anyone can point me to somewhere which has optimum settings that would be nice...
Received one of these new shipments today. No S,A,C on the back sticker and the manufacturer information was removed from the hidden menu. I was determined to find out what model I had, so I took a screw driver to it and completely disassembled the monitor. On the back of the internal panel there is another sticker with the manufacturers name - Lo and behold, mine is a Chi Mei (C) panel.
I bought it because I read recently that all new monitors (with no manufacturer markings) are Samsung. This of course is a lie.
If I had the choice again, I would buy the LG. Samsung have lost a customer for life here.
picked this up yesterday from purple paradise...i notice a lot of bleed at the top of the screen but that is all. fantastic colours, very bright, all rather wonderful...
although what is the beef with 60hz refresh maximum?!
So are the ones OcUK are selling now the C panels too - just asking as I'm trying to decide between the 22" and the new 24" one.
Well ordered it yesterday for Saturday delivery but so far nothing has arrived! Looking forward to getting it although it doesn't look like it will be today now.
if its city link then they deliver upto 5:00pm i think !
