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: 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.
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.
Summary: I have 3 of these monitors for gaming and general usage and for the most part the 120hz is great, the 3D is alright, and when I first got these all of them weren't damaged and didn't have any dead pixels on them. The only problem that I have is the glossy panel becuase I'm not entirely a fan of it, but I already knew about the panel before I bought them on Black Friday for $279.
Summary: Samsung has always been a solid company when it comes to making monitors. I bought this monitor for gaming about 6 months ago and it has performed superbly. Pros: 120 HZ, accurate and beautiful colors (previous asus needed a lot of tweaking), no noticeable color bleeding, no dead pixels 6 months and counting.
Summary: PROs: - 120 hz is like going from CRT to LCD flat panels (the quality difference is HUGE)!! - Image quality is crisp and damn near perfection - The monitor itself is extremely fast, turning on and off from a cold state is the fastest I've had. - Samsung quality and style - Light strong design CONs: - None, you cannot say price since I bought this monitor for 291$ including shipping TIPs: Shop around and look for a deal under 300$ you will not regret it.
