The screen itself is the typical 22" widescreen size that's getting ever-popular these days as prices get lower and lower on them. Unlike the gloss plastic covered panel on the 2232GW we saw previously, the T220 has the standard matte panel front. The 2ms response time is also no surprise here because most of Samsung's new monitors for the past several months have all been 2ms standard. The dynamic contrast ratio of the T220 is a pretty outstanding 20000:1. Keep in mind that the dynamic contrast ratio is not the same as the panel's actual contrast ratio which is only 1000:1. The dynamic 20000:1 is achieved by the monitor automatically adjusting it's backlight for darker images and lighter images to exemplify the current image's colour set. Personally, I find dynamic contrast ratios to sometimes be annoying when I am switching between documents and images that are light and dark because the monitor is continually changing the power of the backlight and "fading" into a brighter or darker image.
Magic Colour, Magic Bright, and image effects are something we've seen on almost all Samsung LCD's even from the early days (although they are features that are continually being advanced in newer models). Magic Colour and Magic Bright have different colour and brightness presets that you can choose between depending on your situation and the media being viewed. The options you have to choose from will cover pretty much anything you'd do on a computer. Whether you are viewing text, internet, games, movies, or sports, they have you covered with these settings if it's something you feel you would like to use. Of course the like or dislike of these settings will be a personal thing. I find the enhancements they do are ok, but I never find myself remembering to actually switch profiles when changing activities on the computer. Image effects are something new that I am seeing on the T220. They allow you to change your display into grayscale, green, aqua or sepia. I'm still trying to figure out the usefulness in that, but I'm sure that someone out there will be rejoicing over the ability of this monitor being able to do that.
