Summary: I've needed a larger screen for working on for a while and this one is perfect. Performs well. Excellent color-rendering. My only complaint is when there is no signal and not turned off manually, the power light blinks incessantly. I wish there was a setting to stop that if you wish.

Summary: I purchased two of these Samsung monitors after seeing them in a local store. The height adjustment is awesome, and if you're looking to swing them around to portrait mode, they also do that quite easily. I can't say I agree with the negative comments concerning picture quality.
Summary: My old monitor was getting dark and I wanted something 1980x1080 which was also bright and had nice colours. Only had it for a week, but I as soon as I tried it, I never had a second thought about buying this monitor.
Summary: I desperately needed to replace my NEC 19" at work. After looking around and having extremely good luck with Samsung screens, I decided on getting one of these. What a beautiful monitor. It's height adjustable, pivots and can be rotated to portrait mode.
Pros: Bright, big screen, pivots, can be rotated and height adjustable
Summary: I purchased these bad boys with a Ergotron dual monitor adjustable arm stand, and am going to buy a second ergotron single montior arm stand for my third display. Unfortunately, as of 9/14/2011, newegg doesn't have any of these samsung BX2440 displays in stock :(
Pros: I purchased two of these monitors about a year ago and have been using them 15+ hours a day since. I haven't had a single problem. The only reason I'm posting this is because of all the negative reviews I see - I'm here again because I'm looking to buy a third (three display setup).
Cons: I noticed that they advertise this monitor that you can view the monitor at any angle and it's perfectly viewable... not exactly true. It's a wicked awesome display, but if it's angled too far it does degrade in brightness. But really not a problem in my book.
