Summary: Contrary to these other reviews I have had this monitor for three years now and never encountered a problem. It seems that majority of the problems are factory defects and once you get past those there are no problems at all.
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.
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.

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.
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.
