Default 2433BW Monitor any good?

BestBuy & Futureshop have a Samsung 24" LCD monitor (2433BW) on sale for $299.99 this week. I been looking for a 24" monitor at 1920x1200, ideally from Samsung for a while.

Any one know if this monitor is good? I mainly would use it for games, occasional movie and general computer use.

I read some mixed reviews and apparently it doesn't tilt but I don't think that would bother me.

Thanks.

Samsung Synchmaster 2443BW 24" has been around for quite sometime now.......although they may not be considered the "greatest" at all...for the price it is pretty good deal for Native 1920 x 1200 Res.

Yeah, the 2443BW is pretty well equivalent to the T240, except it sacrifices the HDMI port for height adjustment and pivot, which I value more.

It looks like the specs on the 2433BW are very close to the 2443BW, but the enclosure is much more akin to the T240 (i.e. no HAS/pivot, glossy as opposed to matte). If you can get it cheap, I'd say you could definitely do worse than this.
