3 1/2 years.. really?

Brandon F., Newegg
21 April 2012
  • Pros: Beautiful picture and functional monitor, while it lasted.
  • Cons: It's dead after 3 1/2 years. I don't know, maybe to some people that's a long time. I guess I grew up in a time my parents had their television 30 years. I just comprehend a monitor going dead after 3 1/2 years. I supposed I have been fairly luck because I have 3 samsung monitors and 3 samsung tv...

No digital with 2008 MacBppl

Fran G., Newegg
17 January 2009
  • Summary: I tried for a month and more to make this monitor work with my late 2008 MacBook. First, no DVI cable came with the monitor. Then Apple's mini-DVI converter wouldn't work with the 2008 MacBook -- it has a DVI miniport, which is a different connection.
  • Pros: Looks nice on desktop
  • Cons: Will not connect to 2008 MacBook with DVI VGA display is dull and distorted regardless of resolution DVI cable not included Display tilt cannot be adjusted Labels on adjustment buttons are impossible to see; I had to learn them by feel

DOA

Steven Giraldo, Amazon
10 January 2009
  • Summary: Simply put doesn't work. I can't install windows on my new machine Powers up I get a picture for a whole 2 seconds then blank screen. I procrastinated on the system build for so long that I can't return this POS to Amazon and now have to deal with RMA through Samsung. I regret buying this.

Only worked for a couple of weeks.

Leona, Amazon
7 July 2008
  • Summary: The monitor worked for a couple of weeks and then all we got was a blank screen. We tried pushing all the buttons, but nothing happened. I contacted the seller who advised me to put in a claim with UPS. This doesn't make sense because UPS did not damage the monitor.

Samsungs warrenty's are not what they are cracked up to be,

M. Brayman, Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: My son got this monitor about 13 months ago. He is 17, almost 18 years old. It sits on his desk, with no temper changes or objects near by to damage it. He went out of town for 3 days and came back turned it on and it looks like someone through a baseball at the picture.

  • Excerpt: Ужасная модель. Мое отношение к самсунгу испорчено навсегда именно благодаря этому монитору. Я никому не рекомендую его покупать - будете только мучиться с ним.
  • Pros: Не вижу ничего особенного
  • Cons: 1. Монитор отображает цвета ужасно. Как его ни настраивай, все равно всякие приятные яркие вещи будут выглядеть засвеченными. ; 2. Постоянные проблемы выставлением разрешения - я думала, что проблемы в видяхах или ОС, но сменила уже 3 видеокарты - и ни с одной он не мог найти общий язык. Чтобы вы...
