Be Warned.

Overstock

  • Summary: I purchased this monitor with high hopes according to the other 3 reviews, obviously my mistake for believing that 3 reviews could mean bliss. The monitor itself was not in great condition with scratches but that was expected being as how it was refurbished. However, the monitor did not work through the DVI or VGA port which was mildly upsetting considering I waited 6 days for it.

DO NOT BUY THIS MONITOR!

sunburstconsulting, Ebay
30 December 2009
  • Summary: I work for a company that buys several monitors at aa time and so we can sometimes see trends that the individual consumer can't. I generally like Samsung products, but this monitor DIES after about 1 year's time. We have 6 in our fleet and 3 of them have quit working altogether over a one year span. My ricommendation is to SKIP THIS MONITOR and buy something else.

Only worked for a couple of weeks.

Leona "Pet Lover", Amazon
30 September 2009
  • 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. Seller refused to do anything more about this, saying it was sold "as is".

No digital hookup with 2008 MacBook

Fran "Tekchik", Amazon
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. When I finally got all the right cables, the monitor still wouldn't display. I got friends to check the connection -- the monitor runs fine with other computers in both digital and analog modes.

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. Also note that a 19" widescreen is like having a 15" normal LCD just wider.

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

M. Brayman "Chevymetalangel", Amazon
9 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. The screen itself is intact but the picture is cracked all over.
