I have owned my last crt....lol
Yup, mine has the glossy screen as well. once you get a better card, youll just love cranking all the games up @ 1680x1050.

UNTRUE, Samsung doesn't always manufacture each individual component of a monitor, it takes various parts from different companies as well as some of its own manufactured parts and assembles it together.

For example, the Samsung 226BW-A uses an AU Optronics panel whereas the 226BW-S uses a panel manufactured by Samsung itself.

I have a 223BW-R

Can't figure out who made it! Looks amazing though I can't complain.

And whirlwind yeah that looks great! Mine is the matte version, my puter is next to the window and I didn't want any glare problems...although I do prefer the glossy finish.

Yeah, after they started to get numerous complaints about customers feeling cheated (rightly so in my opinion) when they got the lower quality panels, they simply named all of them 'R' so no one knows if they have one manufactured by samsung or not. (I think)
