Summary: Monitors are monitors, but Samsung makes great ones and it looks stylish in my home office. I didn't have to install any software or do anything special. It was essentiall hook them up and they work great with my Dell docking station. I did have to buy a DVI to HDMI cord for $5 off Amazon to go from the docking station to the second monitor since Samsung does not have a DVI input on the back. It worked great though once I had that.
Summary: great for gaming. has the right screen size for where I sit at the desk. good wide angle view can see the whole screen, eyes do not have to do a lot of wondering in order to focus on certain spots.
