Summary: I had this monitor for about one and a half years and the video signal just died on me today as I write this review - just in time to luck out with the warranty, as I purchased last April in 2013. Samsung should be sued and reprimanded for ripping people off.
Pros: Great video quality.
Cons: Low life, and the backlight was kind of annoying.
Pros: This picture and color right out of the box is amazing. I have owned this thing for over a year with no problems what so ever. The only issue is the reflective surface of the screen does result in high levels of glare. As my office is pretty void of natural light its not a problem.
Cons: As mentioned the glare is the only issue I have encountered.
Summary: I really think a monitor ought to last more than a year and a month.
Pros: It has a great picture I'll have to admit, but the fact that it died with no warning after 1 year and 1 month kind of spoils the whole thing. No flicker, no problem, just turned it on this morning and it won't acknowledge any input. I tried DVI and HDMI and a different computer and nothing works....
Cons: After 1 year and 1 month the screen will just go black, its not giving me a lost signal messege you can turn it off and turn it back on and the picture will return but go black again after a short period of time. of course all this happened as soon as the warranty period was up.
Pros: Price was just right after rebates. Monitor itself looks great, and no screws or anything requiring a tool, making setup an easy click/lock and good to go. Brightness and color contrast look beautiful.
Cons: Glare is pretty bad. It's reflective enough that when it's bright in the office, I can see myself, to fine detail... For darker offices or entertainment areas, it'd probably be just fine. But as a primary work computer, the glare is distracting.
Summary: I didn't pay attention to the warranty when I bought the monitors (my bad). If I had noticed that the warranty is one year, I would not have bought them. First the 2509s went bad, and now the 2511.
Pros: I replaced a pair of HP 2509 monitors with these after the back lights started flickering. The monitors were excellent replacements, with good color, no dead pixels, and very bright. I didn't have the reflection problems others described
Cons: After eight months, one monitor's DVI port died. I tried the HDMI port and it worked, so I got an adapter and kept on using it. I have had them about a year and a half now, and last night I noticed last night the display had shrunk. The computer still reported a 1920 x 1080 display, and the color...
Summary: Its a good monitor but will eventually upgrade.
Pros: Monitor has a very clear picture when I am gaming or when watching my movies.
Cons: Only issue I have with it is when my computer goes into sleep mode sometimes the monitor will have an issue with coming back on if turning computer out of sleep to quickly. Not much of a con since you shouldnt need to do that for the most part.
