Hardware :: Which Monitor Best / Samsung Versus Dell

Sep 5, 2009

I'm doing up my setup sometime in the near future, and this includes getting new dual monitors for my PC, or to use to expand my MBP.

The Dell is �40 more expensive (24" usually seem to be this expensive compared to 23") Does anybody know which one actually has the better display?

Hardware :: Dell 2407WFP A04 Versus Dell G2410 Versus Dell 2209WA Versus Samsung F2380

Nov 2, 2009

I'm looking for a new monitor to go with my MBP, and I'm stuck trying to choose between the ones listed above.

The 2407WFP is a couple of years old now I guess, but it's the rev A04 version, which supposedly fixed the (few) problems with what was otherwise meant to be a great screen. It's an sPVA screen.

I've heard good reviews of the G2410, with its LED backlighting. It's still a TN panel and I hear so much bad stuff about them.

The 2209WA is an eIPS panel which I like the sound of, but it's smaller and lower resolution.

The F2380 is a cPVA panel, the image quality looks better but I've heard bad things about blacks on this panel.

Hardware :: Dell G2410 Versus Samsung F2380 Versus Other...

Oct 25, 2009

I am planning on purchasing a new display for use (currently) with my imac. I am completely torn between these two models, and cannot make a decision. Any thoughts? I like the Dell because it is LED backlit, thus good blacks and little to no backlight bleed. But I like the Samsung because of the (supposedly better panel and (supposedly) better color reproduction. I like the simplistic look of both of them (though they could look a little better ) so I'm not sure which one to buy.

Hardware :: Dell ST2310 Versus Samsung 2333HD

Aug 8, 2010

I'm going to be getting a Mac Mini (either refurb 2009 or new/refurb 2010) pretty soon and would like a new monitor to go with it (you can try and persuade me to pony up to an iMac but after I saw a display unit at a Best Buy have some damage to it AND knowing how clumsy I can be moving stuff around, I'm 99% sure I'm not getting one). Anyway, I had been keeping an eye on either the UltraSharp or the ST line of monitors from Dell...but then I saw Staples had the Samsung 2333HD on sale for 229...and there's a 10% off coupon which knocks it to about 209 before tax.

Meanwhile there's the Dell ST2310 which I'd be getting which is about 179 (before tax). Good monitor and all from what I'm reading as well, and it was originally the one I was going to buy.

IMac :: Use Dell Monitor As Primary Monitor Connected?

Oct 22, 2009

I was surprised one day to find an inch of white line running from top to bottom on my screen. Then after a week it expanded to two inches white line, then suddenly it turned all black and I can't see two inches of my screen from the right edge. I was reading some forums and found out that I can use a dell monitor as a secondary monitor, but is it possible to use the dell monitor as the primary monitor in case the black line will spread throughout the entire iMac screen? so the iMac would serve as a stand alone processor like a regular desktop?

Hardware :: Dell S2409W Versus HP 2159m

Jul 1, 2009

I have narrowed down my options for an external monitor for my MacBook Pro.

I don't mind the glossy screen on the HP - might actually prefer it as I have been using an iMac for 2 years.

What would the best choice be out of these two monitors?

I could also get the 2309m instead of the 2159m for increased screen size.

Complete Apple newbie actually. Just recently bought a MBP and want to get a large independent monitor while im using it at home. As much as I love the Apple display, I cant afford it at this time. I found a really nice Dell LED monitor that has DVI, VGA, HDMI outputs.  

How can I hook it up to my MBP? What connectors must I purchase to make it work?

OS X :: How To Use My IMac As A Monitor For The Dell Computer

Dec 16, 2009

I use an HP 17 inch laptop as well. Set up Airport Extreme and everything seems to be working. Is there a way to use my iMac as a monitor for the Dell computer?

I really love this monitor so much I hate to hook the Dell up to my Dell 24 inch monitor and would rather give up that monitor and gain desk space. The only other option is to use a Samsung 40 inch LED TV as my Dell's monitor.

I use the iMac for video, pictures and music. I have Windows 7 running via Parallels but would rather just use the new Dell as a Windows computer and the iMac for personal use.

OS X :: Samsung Monitor Resolution On Mac?

Apr 15, 2010

I just purchased a Samsung Series 4 Model 530 monitor, 32 inch, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. Can this effectively be used as the main monitor for my new Mac Pro laptop? I can NOT find this resolution in the prefs anywhere, and do not know if I can really use this monitor. I work in print design, and as a result, I am always viewing typography in great detail.

Hardware :: Getting Blurry Text On Dell Monitor?

Aug 8, 2009

I purchased a dell monitor a few weeks ago (s2409w), but returned it because it had a defect. I was thinking about buying a new monitor, the Dell ST2310, but I recall that on the old monitor text didn't seem as sharp as it did on my PC. It almost seemed a bit blurry.

I had it hooked up to my MacBook Pro via DVI as the main display, running at its native resolution of 1920x1080.

I read somewhere that it may have to do with the monitor's ppi, vs the MacBook's ppi, or something like that. Is there any way to remedy this problem before I buy this new monitor because I'm fearing that it will have the same problem as my old one.

MacBook :: Dell External Monitor And Get Display?

Apr 9, 2010

The text looks a lot different from the Macbook's display. I got it to 1080p and stuff - and yes, it's showing the full 1080p. But how do I get the text to look more like the Mac's text? My Macbook display looks so much sharper. The text on the Dell looks very not anti-aliased...it isn't thick, etc.

Hardware :: Using Touch Drivers For Dell SX2210T Monitor

Dec 12, 2009

I bought a Dell SX2210T touchscreen for use with my MacBook Pro, hoping I'd be able to find drivers for it. OS X 10.6 has API for tablets and multi-touch, so, I'm hoping to use this monitor for dev work until Apple releases their tablet and touchscreen iMacs.

I haven't been able to find drivers for the touch screen at all -- no multi-touch, not even drivers to emulate mouse clicks.

Touch-base is working on updating their Mac drivers to a new version that will support multi-touch with the touch screen in the SX2210T, but they won't be released for "several weeks". I'm hoping to find an interim solution.

Driver info for the touch screen:


Product ID:0x0064
Vendor ID:0x1926
Version: 0.01
Speed:Up to 12 Mb/sec
Location ID:0x24121000
Current Available (mA):500
Current Required (mA):100

Hardware :: Dell Monitor Line Out Not Recognize Headphones

I got my Dell sp2309w monitor a few months ago, and everything worked right out of the box (a lot of reviews said that the webcam and microphone don't work, but they do!). Today I tried hooking up headphones to the line-out at the bottom of the monitor, but my macbook doesn't seem to recognize them.

IMac :: What Cable Need To Connect To Dell 30" Monitor

Aug 8, 2010

I did just a bit of searching and found some cable answers but none that I thought fully answers my question, which is two-fold:

1. I am ordering a new 27" iMac but want to connect my Dell 30" monitor as a second monitor. I assume the iMac does not come with the necessary cable, but I'm not sure which one to buy. The Dell monitor is digital with a 2560x1600 resolution.

2. Would that same cable be able to connect a 2010 model Macbook Pro to the new iMac and/or the Dell?

The one area I feel Apple needs help is the multiple monitor situation. For years I have run laptops with 2-3 external monitors... I find myself having to go back to 2 monitors with either setup unless I buy some 3rd party hardware or shell out for a Mac Pro.

Desktops :: Using Mini DisplayPort To VGA With A Samsung Monitor

Mar 14, 2009

I have the standard 13" aluminum macbook, and I was looking into getting the 'Mini DisplayPort to VGA' adapter to connect my 22" Samsung monitor. On the Apple website, I have seen nothing but horrible reviews about the connection cable, saying that it exclusively does not work with Samsung brand monitors and TV's. On the other hand I only see good things about it connecting to other devices and monitors.

Can anyone shed any light on this? It's already ridiculous that i have to pay the 30$ price for this cable just to use an external monitor, the least I can do is know that it will for sure work.

Hardware :: Connecting MacBook To Samsung Monitor?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a 2.4 GHz Aluminum MacBook which I'm trying to connect to a Samsung T220HD LCD monitor/TV.
I'm using the Mini Display to VGA adaptor.

I know the adaptor works b/c I can connect it to another external monitor at my work.

When I connect the MB to the monitor, the MB sees it b/c "Syncmaster" shows up after I detect displays. However, nothing shows on the T220HD screen. Sometimes, the LCD simply says, "There is no device connected."
