Pros

cPVA panel - much better viewing angles, contrast, colour quality, etc... over a cheaper TN based display

3 agree

beautifully designed thin bezel and stand

3 agree

now features an HDMI input (alongside dual DVI inputs) - whereas the previous F2380 only had dual DVI inputs

2 agree

nice white colour

2 agree

quality ergonomic stand - convertible portrait mode, height adjustable, tilt, and swivel

2 agree

cheaper cPVA - as opposed to sPVA - means it isn't too expensive compared to a TN based display

2 agree

mountable by VESA

2 agree

full 1080p resolution

1 agrees

extremely high contrast and dark blacks

Cons

doesn't come in black

3 agree

the previous generation cPVA based F2380 suffered from many problems - 'black crush' (loss of low level black details), extremely high response times, etc...

1 agrees

no displayport input

1 agrees

16:9 aspect ratio is not as good as 16:10 - loss of vertical pixels isn't great for everyday tasks like browsing the internet, productivity applications

The Samsung SyncMaster F2380MX is a higher-end 23" monitor targeting professional users. Using Samsung's new cPVA panel technology, it is most notable for its high real contrast ratio of 3000:1. The monitor features a 1920x1080 resolution, HDMI and DVI inputs, and good viewing angles. Two 3W speakers are built in, and the monitor is height- and swivel-adjustable. The F2370H, also scheduled for release in mid-2010, targets mainstream consumers and lacks the F2380MX's adjustability options.
