Summary: I had a Samsung 2253BW monitor before which broke and I replaced it with this one. Out of the box, the screen was too bright. I had to play around with it to get the desired brightness. Now one problem I have is with the Splendid feature.
Pros: - Great set of menu options
- HDMI Input
Cons: - Screen is too (annoyingly) bright out of the box. Had to tweak brightness and contrast a lot to get a satisfactory image
- The Splendid selection is completely useless for me ( again the brightness is too high to the point that pixels lose color to whiteness)
