Summary: I shudder when I read about the problems buyers suffer with some monitors, ie, dead pixels. A big reason I can relate to "if it ain't broken don't fix it". I've had this Samsung 24" monitor for a few years now and instead of replacing it I teamed it up with another and can't imagine going back to one monitor. After opening the packaging and hooking the monitor up there were no problems.
Summary: First I will give you my computer's spec's so you can better appreciate the input to this great monitor: it has an AMD 3.6 gb processor w/on board graphics and audio, 8 gb ram. I have a dvi to dvi connection to the monitor. The on-board graphics has only 4096 kb ram on board the graphics chip but can utilize up to 4 gb of ram. Using win8. This computer is an everyday home computer--nothing special.
Solid monitor that handles various input resolutions with bright colors.

Summary: Recently purchased 2 more of these monitors (bought 2 last year) for a 2nd dual monitor configuration connected via a KVM extender so they all connect to the PC in my home office. The second dual monitor seat is in my bedroom which is silent (finally no computer in the bedroom). All 4 monitors work well with each primary at 1600x1200 connected via VGA to a KVM with 16 ports and each secondary at 1920x1080 fed via a 4x4 HDMI matrix switch using a HDMI-to-DVI adapter.
