Summary: I bought this LCD because I wanted a bigger monitor and I liked this brand because the picture quality is great. I have another monitor like this and have not had any problems with it so I bought another one. Great product for the money I spent.
Old product that still works good. Nearly as good as new LED technology.

Summary: Nice product that fits well on the desk. I liked the 2ms rating. I hope fasted is less flicker and easy on older eyes. I didn't wait for Christmas. I gave it already. She uses it and loves it.
Great monitor but need to calibrate and use your own ICC file

Summary: Unlike the others after three years with this monitor (knock wood) I have not had any problems with it. Initially I was not happy with the color settings even after trying to tune it manually. I installed the software that comes with it which includes a color / saturation / brightness tuner which allows you save the settings as an ICC profile. Then on bootup the software loads and loads the ICC profile ensuring the correct settings.
Summary: I don't know why everybody else seems to be having problems with this monitor. But I have had this one for over 2 years and it still looks brand new and runs great. Perfect for gaming. Only downside is that it may be a little small.
Summary: I've had this monitor for over 2 years now and its still going strong. It does a fine job now being my 2nd monitor to my laptop. I do photography and with monitor (with the right color profile) does not let me down when it comes to true color. I did have one problem with the VGA connection where the monitor started streaking lines across the screen (more noticeable on dark images). I had to get a $3 HDMI to DVI cable but the picture is back to normal.
Summary: What a horrible experience it was buying this monitor. I had this monitor for a year before it broke down. I take care of my stuff, so even after a year the monitor was looking new. Unfortunately, I can't take care of the insides when they use cheap parts. Samsung uses cheap parts in many of their monitors, which causes them to break after not too long.
Summary: The extra room that a flat screen gives you is fantastic, even though it is a much larger picture.The unit is lighter than the older ones and it's easier to dust around. There was a very good price on it and the shipping was very timely. I thought that my P C had gone kaput but it was only the old screen. I'm just happier than a cat in a milk barn.
Monitor Backlight Failed and No Response from Samsung

Summary: Basically, the monitor powers on, but there is no video connection because the backlight has failed. This has been documented online. I have emailed Samsung for support on this, but they haven't responded. I would not recommend this product, or Samsung.
