16:10 (1920x1200) 24" monitor - Good quality without a stupidly high price tag.

Summary: I can't stand the trend toward 16:9 (1920x1080) monitors ... I really really like my 16:10 (1920x1200) and I REALLY like that6 extra 120 pixels of height... Several years ago, 16:10 was the common aspect ratio... but this Samsung is one of the few that still gives me the size/aspect I want.
Summary: I'm a big fan of monitors with more vertical resolution. We have lost a lot in that regard with LCD monitors. This monitor gives back at least some of that. It has a 16:10 ratio (1920x1200), so it's a widescreen display with more vertical space than a run-of-the-mill 1080p display. This is important for anyone that does office work on a PC because it makes the job so much easier when you can see more on the screen.
Summary: My darling husband purchased two of these monitors for me. The good news is the picture is crisp and bright. The devastating part is that there is a pronounced vertical color shift that is not affected at all by viewing angle or calibrating the monitor. What a heartbreak. And frustrating. I can't properly edit photos on this monitor or do a page layout due to the hideous color shift. This monitor is fine if all you're doing is email, word processing, spreadsheets, etc.
Summary: No dead pixel issues, still great color and brightness after months of use. I jump back and forth from VGA to DVI between 2 portables, and it has no problems doing that on a daily basis. Just a great monitor.
Summary: This monitor is two things in one. 1) It is a cheap monitor. For the extra vertical pixels it is very cheap compared to others I was looking at. Because it is cheap the viewing angle is not good enough to use this monitor for photo editing tasks or if you are a printer. Moving just 4 or 5 inches in a circle going around top to bottom in front of this monitor changes the corners colors dramatically. First it is pink... Then it is Blue...
Summary: It is build of pure black plastic ,not a carcoal collor. Bazel is even on every side of the screen. Logo is not bulky or shiny, but it looks as a print and its collor is silver which complete with black bazel. The back of the monitor is well designed. I like conectivity and the idea tha there is no USB included on the side of the monitor like in other manufactureres. The control buttons have smooth desin which makes it barely visible.
Summary: I love my new monitor. I liked my first Samsung so much I bought a second one. Two monitors is a great setup. I bought this monitor because it has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 to match my other Samsung monitor. I chose this model because it allows me to rotate the monitor. I am a MS Access developer, and I like to display the code I am working on in portrait mode on this monitor so that I can read more of it at a time, while the other monitor shows the forms or reports.
