I have seven of these, and they all work perfectly.

Summary: One of the best monitors ever made. The Samsung 204t is a 1600x1200 60 Hz. native resolution, 20.1" monitor that is even today, astounding. I have one on my laptop, and I play videos, games, an the monitor is flawless. The Samsung 204t has VGA-15 and DVI connectors, and a standard PC monitor power cord connector. It automatically senses which input is being used. The aspect ratio is 4:3.
Pros: Going on what, 5 years now? I haven't had a single problem with it. A very stable monitor. Can't find a thing to complain about whether it's hooked up to my desktop tower or to one of my laptops.
Cons: Sometimes I wish it was lighter and slimmer, but that's about all.
Pros: Have loved this monitor since I got it. Ne'er a problem, and I've used it all day every day for about 5 years now, constantly switching between an analog and DVI input with the 2 PC's I have connected to it.
Pros: ? Fine picture quality, excellent for DTP and Photoshop work. ? Video and S-Video input, great for camera or other picture/video devices. ? Solid stand with huge amount of adjustability compared to most other displays.
Cons: ? Over 60 watts of power to operate, newer displays are close to half that, but that in understandable.
Pros: It's been a great monitor for nearly 3 years, I've come across the same issue as most of you. The difference is I know that a blinking screen means a 1.99 at radioshak and about 30 mins of my time. VIOLA! new monitor!
Cons: Samsun needs to stop using SAMXON cap's, thats the only con. the SAMXON Inverter filter capacitor is simply to big for the job its doing. and over time it wears out other components.
