Samsung SyncMaster S23A350H review: Going in with low expectations

Does the Samsung SyncMaster S23A350H live up to its low price or perform above it?

I expected the Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H to be a worthy successor to the Samsung PX2370. I was wrong, and while the S23A550H wasn't a bad monitor, it failed to live up to the performance and smart design of the best TN monitor to date.

I guess it stands to reason that I went into the SyncMaster S23A350H's review with low expectations. Having just been disappointed by the S23A550H, I wasn't willing to put my heart back out on the chopping block just yet.

Sometimes, however, lowering your expectations can yield some surprising results. So, does the S23A350H benefit from the fact that I didn't expect much from it, or is it just another S23A550H? Check the previous sentence for the link to the full review.
