Summary: I bought this monitor to compliment another Samsung 24" monitor so I can have dual displays. I was quite impressed with the first and this one is no different! The colors are vivid and the monitor display itself is amazingly thin.
Summary: Had kept my eye out for this Monitor at a local retailer for awhile. Finally reached a price I could afford and I snapped it up. Years ago, I had a Sony 24" CRT to do CAD CAM work, that weighted 90 pounds and took up just about my entire workspace. What a difference!
Summary: I bought this at Walmart for $220 about a year ago. I've had no issues with it at all and to me the more simpler it is, the less things to go bad. It only has two input connections and that's how I like it because I have a number of monitors with lots of input connections and fancy features that had...
Summary: Got fingerprints on the glossy black edge. Stickers on the top right and bottom left left some residue which I had to relentlessly scrape off. For the record, there's about a 30 degree angle from any side before you see the color bleeding. All in all, highly recommended!
Pros: Worked out of the box with no dead pixels. Got it as a gift. Very pleasing too look at. Makes Starcraft 2, oblivion, and other games I play look really good even with reduced resolutions. Quite an improvement from my older 13" monitor! It was apparently really cheap for a 24" monitor, or so they ...
Cons: Weird stand, doesn't allow you to pivot it up or down, but the menu has glare adjustments for various *extreme *angles you might view it at. No loss of egg for that though. Seems like you would break the monitor in half just pushing in a VGA cable... but its sturdy.
Summary: Touch buttons are awesome. I like this idea. I'll be getting another to match this. Was nice to get rid of one of my Acer 22" and go to a 24" with 1080p resolution. HDMI didn't matter to me. At the $199 I paid this was a steal. Hopefully Newegg drops the price a bit so I can get the next one here.
Pros: I bought this at another store, starts with a W. It was $199 there, and on Newegg its $250. Anyways, the LED backlighting is great, picture is sharp and crisp, colors are great. The "Magic" settings I have disabled, and I tuned it to my liking.
Cons: - No DVI cable, seriously Samsung? Though most people on Newegg probably have many spares. - In it's default settings, it's WAY TOO BRIGHT! I had to calibrate it.
Summary: The power connector is similar to laptop connectors in that it has an AC/DC converter on it. I don't mind this, but it is just another block of electronic material sitting on your desk or hanging off the back of the monitor. I'm sure it saved weight and size of the monitor, so i think it's worth it.
Pros: I also own a 24" Samsung LCD w/o backlight. I bought the LED backlight 24" monitor for my brother for his b-day. This monitor is half the thickness and far lighter than the standard LCD. I can easily hold it out at arms length, which makes it very easy to move around and install. The connectors, ...
Cons: The fact that it is only tilt means you'll have to prop up the monitor from one side or the other if your desk or house/apt is slanted. But, since its so light, this wasn't a big issue =).
Summary: Bought it yesterday from Walmart as an impulse buy - had been using a 55 inch Samsung HDTV (with which I felt comfortable with regards picture quality) so decided to try and avoid the othe unknown quantities out there and went with Samsung. Paid $229 and another $20 for 2 year service warranty.
