Summary: The following is copy of conversation between Samsung tech. support and me after one of the two I purchased fail exactly after 12 months, I purchased these monitors to use with my laptop on June 2012, On September 17, 2013 one of them wouldn't come on, this monitor comes with 12 months warranty, unless you want to pay to fix it yourself after that 12 months don't buy this product. when contacted SAMSUNG technical support, the following is how our conversation went.
Summary: 18 months of trouble free service is all I got out of this. Numerous older LCD's still working. Never trust Samsung again. $120 charge estimate (could be higher) not including freight and a new monitor is $130.Samsung advised me to contact local repair shop- they said it was not worth opening up and they would recycle it NC- best deal of the day.
Summary: The product is billed as a HDTV/ MONITOR but has little to no tv capabilities. No speakers. Had to purchase a adapter to hook up my gaming system at which point it works only in black and white. Expensive paper weight.
Summary: I would NOT recommend buying a used monitor by this manufacturer. I bought a brand new Samsung SyncMaster SA350H for $199.99. Assembled in Mexico. It was decent while it worked. Died (would not "recognize" any signal, would not bring up menu, etc.)after 15 months of moderate use. Conveniently (for Samsung) out of warranty. Samsung offered "repair" but, of course, at my expence. It did cost me about $0.44 per day of use.
Summary: I purchased this monitor from this seller, and not only did I spend countless hours trying to set up, but it never actually worked in the first place. I have another monitor exactly like this and was trying to set up dual ones, so I know when one works. After talking with multiple IT and help desks, they said it was defective.
13 months of use... stops working and conveniently out of warranty.

Summary: Purchased this 11/24/2011 from Costco. One day after Thanksgiving 2012 the inputs stopped working. Now I have this pile of poo on my desk. Between this, the Galaxy S3 phone that cracked under normal wear and their continued lack of support for Google Prime content over their "Smart" Tv products, I think my honeymoon with Samsung can be declared dead. Cheap, cheap, and I can't trust them.
Summary: I used this as a computer monitor. I have a dual monitor setup, the other being a HP monitor. After about 18 months the Samsung monitor stopped working. The HP monitor is still working well. Samsung will fix it for $120.00 which includes shipping both ways. The $120 including shipping is reasonable. Customer service is very impressive.
Summary: I bought this in April and it is now August, so in less than 6 months this TV has given me problems. I bought this TV so I can have my own work and play station in my room. I hooked up my computer and console game system to it. Features and picture are really good. Sound wasn't that great, but I did not mind or really care for it. The issue with this TV is this: The TV keeps turning off and on constantly and rapidly. It did not do it in the beginning.
