Summary: Zero dead pixels, performs great. The lighter colors are a little washed out but you can balance that by setting the monitor to "warm" in the color setting, but your darker colors will be intense. The screen does reflect if you're not in a dark room and there is a lot of black. So if you're like me and your neutral face is a scowl you may want to invest in some thick blinds--or smile whenever the sun is out.
Summary: I think 23 inches is the perfect size for a 1080p. This monitor brings out the best for console gaming 60hz. The colors are vibrant and alive. There's less jaggies and staircases on the pixel even at a console level. It looks very nice. My previous monitor was a eizo fs2333 ips monitor btw. Eizo who? Update 8/01/13... So far loving the monitor, colors are way better glad I made this purchase. Blows eizo foris fs2333 by a mile.
Usually don't write reviews but this monitor is SO AMAZING that it'd be a sin not to share with fellow hardcore gamers!!!

Summary: First, let me say that I AM A HARDCORE ONLINE FPS kinda guy, Black Ops 1and 2, BF3 etc and this gaming monitor is the best product I have ever bought for gaming PERIOD. I have an Xbox 360E 250GB, the highest quality hdmi cable money can buy and this monitor exceeded my expectations. The colors are the most vibrant I have ever seen on a television, your games will have a new feel to them you have to see to believe.
Summary: pros: -great looking color for a TN panel -120hz ( i heard this has a slow response time but, i haven;t notice it) -23" not too big and not too small. -was $280 when i bought this. Con: -harder to find -Price went up to $400+ , so its making it more expensive for me to buy 2 more. should never mix match monitors. -3d kind of disappointing. But, then again, i didn't buy it for 3d.
Summary: I was going to give a 4 star when I realized the screen does come back to desktop from sleep state on other win 7 boxes(PCs) than mine. So, 5 stars because I do not get headaches anymore and I do not have to say you're going to have to turn the monitor on/off to get back from sleep mode. Annoying, but the Samsung Sync is that great. I find myself on the PC for hours at a time, all day+ some times through the early hours. Great glossy screen surface.
