Summary: Fast delivery and arrived in perfect condition. Purchased two of these for my office. Unquestionably, the best bang for the buck if you are looking for the 1920 X 1200 format (unlike the 1920 x 1080 format, I consider this format to be the best for power computing).
Pros: Very clear,crisp details. Wanted the higher native resolution and the benefit is noticeable. Color excellent. Running on two GTX 460's - some ghosting but acceptable. Overall, very satisfied.
Cons: Would prefer 2 ms response though fast enough for most purposes. Had one problem with red screen getting progressively worse during first 30 days. RMA and service from Samsung was good. Monitor has been fine since - six moths of continuous use.
Pros: The base is height adjustable and very stable. It rotates 90 degrees which is pretty useful for reading long websites. Brightness and contrast range is wide and easy to adjust. I used the Windows color calibration wizard and it looks great now.
Cons: One dead blue pixel in the upper right quadrant, I can't see it unless I'm using a solid blue test screen to find it.
Pros: Beautiful picture quality with bright, vivid, rich colors. Tilt and swivel base are very nice for photo editing, true 1200 hd, good connectivity (hdmi would be a nice addition). Colors are close to spot on out of the box. Calibrated it with my colormunki and it didn't change much.
Cons: Built in monitor controls aren't the best. Doesn't affect me because I don't use them. Also, this monitor is $40 more expensive than the SAMSUNG 2443BWT-1, but there appears to be no difference in features or performance. I only bought this model because the other was out of stock when I was shop...
Summary: I bought three of these and the view from my desk chair is awesome. If your looking for a really good monitor regardless of whether you do photo editing, video games, or just want a nice display to look at, this one will definitely work.
Pros: The picture quality is great. The product description says that the contrast ratio is 20000:1 and in fact the product sheet from samsung's website says the same thing. The actual product however is printed with 50000:1 on the bezel and the packaging says 50:000:1 as well. I don't know which figur...
Cons: I don't really have any cons to speak of. I will comment on the lack of HDMI however. For those who feel they need HDMI you should realize that HDMI and DVI-D use the same digital signal format. The only difference that HDMI has compared to DVI-D is the presence of audio on the cable. If you have...
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.
When rotated to 1200x1920 can't be beat for developing software.

Summary: Sharp, easy to read even with very small fonts at both 1920x1200 and 1200x1920. I use the 2443BWT-1 as my primary monitor flanked by two older Samsung monitors (see pictures). All are rotated to 1200x1920 mode giving a desktop that is 3600x1920.
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.
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.
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.
