Great monitor if you get a good one

Anonymous, Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: Overall it's a great monitor. I'm partial to the Samsung brand monitors. I've tried Asus and Dell and none were as nice as this Samsung monitor. Even though a lot of people like the Dell monitors, they have their own issues..
  • Pros: Very nice screen. 16:10 aspect ratio.
  • Cons: Some backlight bleed. It may be a hit or miss depending on what monitor you get. I've owned one of these for a good 2+ years and it has a tiny amount of backlight bleed on the bottom center of the screen when viewing dark images in a dark room. It is not very distracting since it's so minimal but...

Beautiful, Thrilling Monitor

DWallace, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: Gorgeous out of the box. Super crisp text, lots of pop. I am coming from a same-sized HP TN of some years' service, so this display technology is two or three jumps ahead for me. Hard to believe the two monitors have the same resolution.

Mr. Mount, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought two of these monitors in March of 2012. One still works, but the other one failed after two years. I've gone back to my Dell 24" monitor that I bought 8 years ago, and continues to work to this day, until I can get a replacement. So buyers should be aware that they may not last very long.

A very good gaming and work monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
21 June 2014
  • Summary: For an LED PLS monitor, this is a fantastic value. I use it for both work and play, and it does a marvelous job of it. The base is sturdy and the monitor will not wobble.
  • Pros: I bought the monitor specifically for the 16:10 aspect ratio, which is rare (16:9 becoming the "HD Standard"). No regrets for shelling out the extra money. The "eco" function which detects ambient light and adjusts the brightness accordingly has three sensitivity settings. I keep my sensitivity o...
  • Cons: I dislike how flimsy the buttons feels. However, once you get the initial setup out of the way, you hardly ever have to touch the buttons again (I just leave my monitor on, in standby mode, when I am not using it). The menu itself could use a proper human-machine interface specialist to look at i...

Great 24" Monitor

Joshua T., Newegg
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I've read people saying that the monitor has issues with light bleed, but for me personally, I haven't seen anything of the sort on either of the two I now own of this model. Still, worth considering before purchasing.
  • Pros: I just ordered my second one of these to replace a different, older monitor. The first one I bought over a year ago and absolutely loved, so when one of my others died, naturally I went and bought a second one of these Samsungs. It's 1920x1200 16:10 with vivid colors and fast response time, and t...
  • Cons: The stand is pretty easy to adjust on accident, which can be annoying if you accidentally bump the monitor.

Serious backlight bleed. Corrupt display.

Dan Connor, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I found this Samsung to have far too much backlight bleed and visual artifacting for a higher-end monitor. That combined with its legendary propensity for spontaneous failure encouraged me to return it. This image is consistent with the backlight issue [...

Great Monitor

A. Hunter "god_aaron", Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Great Monitor Good quality picture, super thin display. Really love it. Currently have it attached to a multi-monitor stand that attaches to my desk. Don't know why, but cant wear sunglasses and look at it though; screen disappears.

The Best 24" Monitor as of The Beginning of 2013

Peter C., Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Newegg has this monitor listed as a 16x9 1920x1080 display, but it's actually a 16x10 1920x1200 display. Good thing I did my research before buying or I wouldn't have bought this monitor. Here is the link If you want the actual specs on this monitor.
  • Pros: This thing is nicer than the 24" Dell ultrasharps. ultrasharps are LCD this one is LED. I'm not going to list all the advantages of LED, if you need to know google will tell you. Anyway it's a PLS witch is samsungs version of IPS (feel free to look into it). It's a 1920x1200 16x10" monitor. It's ...
  • Cons: The only thing I would change is I would make it a little stiffer to raise, lower, and turn on its side. I'm OCD and if you bump it you can shift it to where it's not level too easily.

Good, but could have been great.

jaywar, Amazon

  • Summary: Well the monitor uses samsung's pls technology which I was hoping would be superior to ips panels from Dell. There is one major problem, HUGE backlight bleeding. When I say huge I mean "HUGE".
