Summary: I bought 2 Samsung monitors within 1 month of each other, based on glowing reviews. This one came with a D**l high-end XPS9000 desktop. Failure mode was such that De** replaced graphis card, cpu (965 xtreme), and mobo (twice!).
Pros: Looked good, while it lasted. Got new mobo, vid card and cpu out of the deal.
Cons: Died at 23 months. *el* would not warranty, Samsung says "Whart-sosolly".
Summary: While this monitor lasted it was really great. I have a huge boxy monitor which has lasted 10 years now. It's only like 18 inches but it lasted 5 times longer than this piece of junk. If there was a 0/5 I would give that rating because I value reliability over any other feature.
Pros: I thought the monitor was pretty dang good while it worked. The picture quality wasn't really that much better than a lot of lower priced monitors I've seen. But, I never used the 3D glasses on this monitor. It's not worth the $400 for sure.
Cons: The monitor lasted until the service warranty ended and then one day I turned it on and it wouldn't stay on for more than a few seconds. I took it into a local repair shop. It's been two weeks and they are still looking for a replacement for the broken parts so they can give me an estimate.
Summary: Would recommend you buy it as Samsung's warranty service is good. Otherwise, find another 3D monitor.
Pros: Monitor works great for 3D and 2D viewing. There is a small amount of interlacing or something when using the 3D mode of Nvidia 3D vision but otherwise the picture is always perfect.
Cons: Worked great for a year then the backlight would shut off after a few minutes of use. Finally got to the point where a few seconds of use would cause it to shut off. Returned to Samsung for a repair under warranty, they paid shipping and fixed it in a reasonable time. One week after getting it ba...
Summary: monitor works fine, great condition no scratches... however i received a single link plain dvi cable which does not work with this monitor! so include into the cost an extra 10$ to buy an extra cable.
Summary: I just wanted to know why there aren't more of these 120hz monitors around? Why isnt Sam***g making anymore of these? Please make more!!! I've been trying to find one. I can't seem to find one at this price that has as good reviews as this one.
Beautiful, not for shutter glasses, a little wobbly
11 February 2011
Summary: The colors are really nice on this monitor. We got this for its 120hz refresh rate for use in developing 3d programs. Biggest issue: I'm assuming that the 3D glasses and setup they suggest will work without this issue, but if you're coming in expecting to use shutter glasses, realize that this LCD...
Summary: If you're worried about this not being a true 120hz monitor then I'm here to tell you not to worry at all. This game can handle 120 FPS easily. This is also coming from someone who hated LCD monitors.
Pros: Very beautiful monitor. I love it... Smooth gameplay with games like COD and QuakeLive and the picture quality is excellent. Received my monitor in 2 days.
Summary: Monitor is perfect and is everyting that I thought it would be. Be aware that the tech support SUCKS if you do have any issues.
Pros: Great monitor perfect for people who play cs. 120hrz is awesome once you get the correct cable. Samsung tech support is awful. Stated it would be 9-14 business days before they could ship me the cable that THEY failed to include.
Summary: Some have noted some light bleed on top and bottom of screen and also poorly designed base....But I didn't experience either of these issues. setup took less than 5 minutes. With the onscreen menu it was up and running @ 120 Hz 1680 x 1050
Pros: This monitor is the best purchase I've made for my gaming system, hands down. The picture quality is beautiful bright and crisp.I found the over quality to be excellent.
