Summary: We received the first monitor and it had a bad display. It continuously got worse as I continued to use the monitor. I contacted the seller and they said it was on my end. I explained the troubleshooting we went through before contacting them and I asked for an exchange. I received the second monitor and was hopeful that this one was going to be in good shape.
Fantastic Monitor! A really great value for the money!

Summary: My $800.00, almost new, laptop was damaged when someone placed a heavy object on top of the case and cracked the screen. I needed an inexpensive monitor so I could continue to at least use it at home. It was going to cost me over $120.00 for a new screen (top) and another $125.00 for labor to remove the bad screen and re-install the new one. Instead, I got a great "Daily Deal" for under $90.00!!!
Summary: when i first took this item out of the box the screen was flickering but as of now i have resolved the issue. i jus hope it stays fixed. the product is nice and clear, large, easy to put together, jus click click ripp of paper tahts all. i would recomed for the pice deff a steal!!
I would recommend purchasing new and not refurbished.

Summary: Because this was for my 12 year old son, I did not think it was necessary to purchase a new monitor for him and he is happy with it. I can't say the same. There's a dead pixel and when I called customer service, I was told that Samsung does not consider this a flaw. If there were more than 8 dead pixels, then that would be considered flawed and it could be returned. I was offered an exchange but told I could get one with more than one dead pixel.
Summary: One thing about this monitor is a deal-breaker & will drive you crazy unless you plan to use this monitor on a shelf above your head. There is no way to adjust the viewing angle. The screen tilts DOWN about 10 degrees. Normally you would want a screen sitting on a desk in front of you to tilt UP about 10 degrees. This sounds like a joke but it is not. I put a book under the front of the monitor stand to get it to face me. This is unstable & unsatisfactory.
Summary: I bought this because of the low price at the time only $120 with a promotion i used. It works great with the computer and almost all graphics card drivers support it because it come with drivers for the 1600x900 resolution. I also use it with the ps3 i connected a HDMI tO DVI and it works fine. This was a great buy and i will be using it for a long time.
