Summary: I Just wanted to comment on Just-Checked-Up-On-I review of this monitor. He/She is incorrect. The webpage states that it is an S-IPS monitor but the webpage incorrectly has the wrong information there.
Summary: It's manufactured by Samsung. I have had every Samsung monitor fail on me right either immediately or right after the warranty expires. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had realized Samsung was the manufacturer.
Pros: It has an external power supply.
Cons: The left side of the screen went out on me right away. It was flickering and colors shifting and offset. The right side looked great. I used 3 different dual link DVI cards, and 2 different computers.
Summary: This monitor has a huge, heavy, brushed aluminum chassis. Mine arrived with a lage dent on one side, where it was struck with enough force to bend some internal brackets and shear through the screws holding the bezel together.
Pros: High Resolutions (of course) Awesome stand. Flexible inputs. Power supply is external.
Cons: Lots of wasted space in bezels, bigger footprint than needed. Monitor arrived damaged from factory, some functions don't work.
Summary: It was a hard decision to try a 30". And then which one. I love it.
Pros: Just built a new computer and chose this monitor. Solid. Nice brushed aluminum frame. Does radiate a bit of heat through the frame. No stuck pixels. Used a ColorMunki to calibrate it. Looks very good. The real estate is wonderful. This is a photoshop system - not a game system. I do not push it f...
Summary: When I plugged in my PC via HDMI the picture only went to 1080p. Not unexpected, but a tad surprising since I know HDMI supports at least 1900x1200. When I went dual-link DVI the picture auto adjusted to 2560x1600.
Pros: BIG! Bright and beautiful screen. Nice colors. Very tight dot pitch for text. Built in scaling ability (in case u run a 16:9 or 4:3 source). My last monitor by doublesight didnt have it and it made PS3 look fuuny all stretched out in 16:10. Star Wars the Old Republic at 2560x1600 is PHENOMINAL. a...
Cons: None so far. The appearance is a little bland (brushed black finish) and the back looks odd being all aluminum (for heat disipation) but this thing is functioning well so far...
