Excellent computer monitor for wall mounting, refurb, out of production

KirkinDallas, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these over a year ago. Very nice computer monitor. I work from home and wanted to add another wall mounted display. Unfortunately, Samsung's new line of monitor doesn't have wall mount holes. I found this as a refurb and it's perfect. I'm displaying this page on it right now!

very good

David A., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall its a good solid monitor but it loses an egg simply because the touch controls on the bottom right are a pain if you're trying to adjust something in a dark room.
  • Pros: Its an all around good monitor with a fair amount of options.
  • Cons: - While it has built in speakers unless you are mounting this to the wall I don't see the point of you actually using them unless you're on a budget and don't play on buying speakers for your computer. - Kind of hard to find which button is which in the dark since none of the touch buttons on the...

Great for gaming

  • Summary: I bought this monitor mostly to connect to my xbox 360 for gaming. I'm not disappointing at all, there is no delay and the picture is great. It's like night and day versus playing on a TV.

Very good monitor

Cody, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this panel as a monitor for my computer. I play a lot of games on it and the picture is fantastic. It has great viewing angle. The stand isn't so great though, as it has maybe a 30 degrees swivel angle, might be better wall mounted but mine isn't.

A great upgrade

Kevin G., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Before getting this monitor I was using a 23' Samsung B300 monitor and now I use them both. I thought the B300 was a great monitor but compared to this one there is no competition. Blacker blacks, faster response, better contrast. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: -Great contrast, deep blacks -Great colors, very rich -Having speakers is a nice touch, they aren't great, but having them is a nice gesture -VESA mounts! the lower end B300 monitors lack VESA mounts -2x HDMI and allows for multiple inputs (I have 1 xbox, and 1 pc connected and I can easily switch)
  • Cons: -Touch controls can be finicky -Speakers lack any real depth and bass -Despite what Newegg lists this DOES NOT come with a HDMI cable, but a MHL cable for connecting a samsung phone to the monitor

Great Monitor for a Great Price

Thomas W., Newegg
13 September 2012
  • Pros: I received this monitor in just one day! Another great shipping experience from Newegg. One of the best aspects of this monitor was the price. I picked it up for $189.99 and received a $30.00 gift card. I can't say I would have purchased otherwise. This monitor will be going to my wife for when s...
  • Cons: I wish they would create a thin bezel on their monitors, hopefully the begin to do this it makes using multiple monitors a more pleasant experience.

Something to be aware of

Cormac M., Newegg
20 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit because I was moving back form laptop to desktop. My laptop was an Alienware M15X with HDMI port. I could never get the colors exactly right while this monitor was plugged into the laptop. There was always too much blue and the oranges seemed a washed out Yellow.
  • Pros: Looks sleek and is a nice size monitor to work on. After using a 15" laptop screen for 4 years a 23" is a new standard for me and I don't think I would ever do smaller than that again.
  • Cons: Speakers, I'm not sure who the on board speakers are supposed to be marketed towards but would anyone really expect these to be any good?
