decent monitor; but no Mac driver

  • Summary: I bought this as a second monitor, and as such it performs nicely. The price was right ($320 after rebates), and it's one of the thinnest 17" moniitors I've seen. Image quality is nice, and contrast ratio is better than many models, but it's a big dissapointment that there are drivers available for all versions of Windows and even Linux, but no Mac driver!

Software must improve

  • Summary: It's a great monitor except for the software that replaces the usual buttons for brightness, contrast etc. The idea of replacing the buttons with SW may make some sense but Samsung has made a poor implementation. Every time I log in, the Samsung SW will put an hour-glass in the middle of the screen for up to 30 seconds while it communicates with the monitor over DVI.
