Summary: I have several samsung monitors. I bought this one as a replacement for a second monitor that I operate next to a 2493hm. I have two issue with this monitor. First, the colors look pale in comparison with my other samsung monitors (2253bw and 2493hm). The quality of the picture is pretty much at par with a 4 year old 19 inch dell that this monitor replaced. Second, the monitor appears to be a little smaller in comparison to my 2253bw. 22 inch should be 22 inch.
Summary: I'm sure you can find better out there. I bought this at Costco yesterday and was pleased, for the first five minutes... So There is backlight bleeding on top and the bottom, a bit on the right and left sides... I have an older Samsung930B (not widescreen) and there is no backlight bleeding (well not enough for me to notice it and be irritated by it).
