Summary: Bought as a TV for bedroom...people are right need better speakers/amp so would be better as monitor but I still like for price as great picture and lots of features found only in larger sets. Can't beat price or free ship..
Better than expected by the reviews read before purchasing!

Summary: I had seen the TV on display first at Costco and was impressed with its look and picture. I went home to do research on the TV via the Internet and upon reading several posted reviews I saw consistently how the sound output was its general weakness. I am aware of how the small TVs 22' and less are known for their weak sound volumes and lack of quality since I have a small Polaroid 19" that I am replacing by this Samsung and I have another Panasonic in my RV and both have...
Summary: I am very pleased with this purchase. I could not expect a better value for the quality of the monitor. I use it for dual purpose of my HDTV and PC, and it works marvelously. I have in connected to my 2.1 computer speakers and use an AB switch to provide external sound to the HDTV when I am not using my PC. It also has a PIP feature which allows me to surf the web, or use the PC and still watch a TV channel in the PIP window.
Great as an alarm Clock which other Brands dont Offer.

Summary: overall this tv is a good product for the money.This makes my second one.We have used the first one in our Bedroom.It wakes us up in the morning for work and we programed it to sleep in on the weekend.The other one I use in my office which is a newer version of the first one.The only thing I dont like is amount of time it takes to change channels.This tv has alot of features that other Brands Dont.
Summary: I ordered this primarily as a computer monitor with the option of adding TV to it at some point. It looks great now, but for some reason the default settings on VGA leave you with 'edge enhancement' and no 'auto-off when none of the inputs have a signal', so if you have one of these monitors I recommend a thorough examination of the settings.
If the price is right get it, you won&apos;t be disappointed

Summary: Awesome TV/Monitor. This is the perfect size for a dresser or desk and the picture is great. It does look much better in HD then it does with regular cable TV but it is well wort the price for a small office or bedroom TV/Monitor
Pros: This $200 Samsung connects to most external devices. PIP lets you toggle between the HDTV & another device - e.g., PC wordprocessing during TV commercials. Audio is great with optimizing presets from music to speech. Video is fine with most lighting.
Cons: The picture is lousy under both bright & dark backlighting in a dark room - this is a common problem for many flatscreens, but the Samsung seems particularly bad. Wallmounting of this screen is difficult & VESA mounts are apparently unavailable.
