Summary: I got this for Christmas, and I love it! The picture is fantastic, and I use my computer to watch DVDs as well as for regular computer stuff since I don't have a TV. It's big and bright, and the menu is easy to operate with the buttons on the side of the monitor.
Summary: So far the monitor is pretty nice and works fine. It did take me about 15 minutes to install the stand. But basically you just got to first put the stand together. Then you got to forcefully shove either the left side or right side in as far as possible.
Summary: Yes, the picture quality of the monitor is great and that's what really counts but the stuff on the CD is less than worthless. It was sucking all my cpu cycles up. Everything was running much slower than usual after I installed the two programs on the CD.
Summary: This is a great product, except it's very hard to mount the LCD into the stand. I have to put the stand on bed and use full body weight to push the LCD into the stand's mount. Was very afraid it will break the LCD. After that, it's pleasure to use.
Summary: Stand assembly was very frustrating only because I hadn't seen these reviews and thought that surely Samsung had packed the wrong stand. After an hour of frustration I threw caution to the wind and forced it in. Voila! Don't be afraid -- it's tight but not impossible.
Summary: This is an absolutely gorgeous monitor. I love the details in its appearance. Yes, the little stand took a call to Samsung (who assured me that yes, it was a PITA to plug in), a kitchen towel around my hand and some careful pressure to get in- but if you start from one edge and apply steady...
Summary: The picture is great, the price is right. But I, too, had difficulty installing the monitor on it's base. I was afraid something was going to snap and ended up using a soapy solution to lubricate the bracket. One of the reasons that I bought this monitor was it's "Energy Star" rating.
Not perfect, but pretty good (after some tweaking)

Summary: When I connected the monitor to my Mac mini (OS X 10.5) using DVI, the monitor immediately worked at full resolution (1680x1050, 60Hz), but the overall color was much too blue, and the monitor controls do not allow color adjustment.
Summary: **** I dont play Video Games etal ****. This is my first LCD monitor and it works like a charm. As the other reviewers mentioned installing the base to the monitor will test your patience. My PC does not have a DVI output, even with analog connection I am happy with this monitor.
