Summary: great monitor. I suppose this is a little obsolete at this point, what with TV combos et al I do not yet have knowledge of. But this is what it is and i love it. Big and bright. If all you want is a monitor, you can likely do as well for cheaper. I am writing this well after the fact. it is 26 JAN 2014, and this must be five or more years old. I got what I ordered and when the seller said I would.
Summary: I would never ever buy another Samsung product after my experience with this monitor. Apparently, their capacitors blow and you end up with a monitor that blinks on and off continuously until you have it repaired. This has happened twice within the past 7 months. Fortunately, I was able to have it repaired reasonably by a friend, but others are not as lucky. There's even a class action lawsuit that's just been settled over their LCD's, PDP's and DLP's.
Summary: We've used two of these monitors for workstations at my office and they seemed like fine monitors until they began to smolder. Both monitors succumbed to this and were dead afterwards. We don't leave the monitors running after work hours or during the weekends, and they burnt out during a normal day of work. They weren't brand new, but we still found this quite disturbing. It's a bit more frightening if you use this monitor for a home computer.
Had 4 of these almost 4 years now - still working perfectly
18 September 2011
Summary: I purchased 4 of these at a Black Friday sale in 2007. Almost 4 years later (and TONS of use), and they all still work perfectly. Never had a single issue with any of them, not one dead pixel. I'm bad about setting my PC to shut off the monitor, so they have run 24x7 for weeks at a time with no issues at all. Very little glare in high-light situations, clear picture, and I am super happy with these monitors.
Summary: I loved this monitor - and then it started acting funny. Menu buttons wouldn't work and the picture adjust box would randomly pop up. I tried everything too fix it, but it kept getting worse. Now it is unusable, as the monitor randomly cycles through monitor settings with boxes popping up everywhere. I have used other monitors for YEARS, and I got just over a year out of this one. VERY dissapointed, Samsung.
Summary: I have now used it a few weeks and it has a great picture and built in sound. I have a Samsung TV that I have had for two years and I looked for a Samsung monitor basesd on the satisfaction I had with this brand. For anyone out there who needs a monitor, I highly recommend it.
Summary: I spend most of my waking life sitting in front of a monitor. As such it is really important to me that the monitor have superior visual quality to reduce eye strain. This monitor has the cleanest color profile of any LCD I have ever seen, it is nicely bright, has a fantastic contrast ratio (black looks BLACK), and fairs well against glare. The best monitor I have ever owned, easily.
