Summary: First of all, the Samsung 955DF is HUGE...it's like a tank...and I think it weighs in at around 55 pounds. It takes up a lot of desk space, but it does the job. About the only downfall on performance I can find is the lack of contrast. The first thing I did was ramp up the contrast and down the brightness because when it came out of the box, the picture looked sunfaded.
Summary: I've had this monitor for a little over a year now and it has performed well. The screen, though not the crispest, most beautiful picture available, is excellent for what I paid for it. The color accuracy is decent, with the adjustment controls being relatively straightforward. There are, however, a couple of problems that lowered the score of this monitor in my mind. Issue #1: The cable connecting the monitor to the CPU is way too short.
Summary: The main problem with this monitor is that almost all of the resolution and frequency combinations cause the screen to dance and wave. In other words, they are unusable unless you want to get a headache after using your computer for a few minutes. Only a few of the combinations work. For some reason, 60Hz and 1600*1200 works just fine.
Summary: I am a constant gamer, up to 18 hours a day. I built my own computer and chose this monitor to be the crown on my queen. This is one of the best monitors i have seen in a while, and for the price it is absolutely excellent. I highly suggest you buy this monitor before the go out of production/stock/whatever.
I Love this monitor.... This is the Best in the world~!

Summary: I am working in the company related with computer networking. So, I used a lot of monitors(dell, Sony 21', ViewSonic..) This is much better than others. I love this... This one has the highlight option. The design is very good and quality is excellent....
Summary: I'm a network engineer and have worked with Many different monitors and I really like this one. I spend approximately 12-16 hours a day working on computers. At work I have a Sony 19" which is GREAT (But cost a LOT more) and I use this Samsung at home (about 30 hours a week). I use this monitor for web design, graphics, and everything else a network engineer does. I like this monitor enough that today I'm here to buy another one for my dad.
Summary: I think all the great stuff about this monitor has already been said- color, flatness, and such. The one problem I would point out is that the physical screen size seems to always be shifting. When I turn on the monitor the screen area is past the edges of the screen meaning things get cut off. After a few minutes, the screen returns to normal. It gets a little annoying and I've never seen it with other screens.
Summary: I had a 17" Samsung 753df and that was one of if not the best 17" monitor I have ever used. Fooled by that I bought 955df and so far it is a disappointment. My basic issues with it are: 1: The monitor has a significan loss of contrast at the center of the screen, or as described by other users - line distortion, which significanly strains the eyes, especially if you try to correct the moire and compromises the benefits of a small pixel size.
