Summary: There were some scratches on the top of the screen, but nothing that would detract from the use of it ... just not as pretty as I'd hoped. Also the box was crushed in the corners, which makes me wonder if it took a beating on the way here. Even so, it's working at least for now and has a very nice picture.
Summary: Great monitor for personal or office use. I'd give 5 stars to Samsung, it's one of the best in its class for monitors and TVs too. Highly recommended. And thanks to overstock.com for quick shipping.
