Summary: This Monitor scores good on looks. Black and sleek looks quite stylish. However, I did not find its performance satisfactory. The picture quality was not good. The images were not sharp and the color of pictures was not a true reproduction. As I was not satisfied with the picture, I tried to adjust the colors, sharpness and contrast and was again disappointed. I found the adjustment buttons to be very unintuitive.
Summary: I had high hopes for this monitor, it would be my second Samsung monitor and the last one was stellar. I unpacked it and couldn't get past installing the stand! I read the box, the printed instructions and combed the CD for tips or clarification. Nothing. I got help from a co-worker and HE couldn't do it, even when applying all of his considerable strength. Buyer beware, this may be troublesome for you.
