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 [...] It was quite visible even with an image on the screen.

Defective items

M, Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought one in November 2011, it arrived with bad pixels and white spots. Thanks to Amazon they did replace that one. The other item did work but had two big white spots at the bottom of the screen. I had decided to keep it: obviously it was not good decision. Now it has about 2 inches width band of vertical lines in the center of screen. Considering 500 price for that monitor - it is a great pain with losing my time and money.

Expensive Trash...

C. Lenoir, Amazon
31 January 2012
  • Summary: Buying this monitor took me to a new area. I've never owned a "professional" monitor. I bought this for graphics work, and for its size. This is my first day with the monitor, and I'm happy to say that I don't have any issues with backlight bleed. If I'm really looking for it, yes, I can see a light halo, around the very edges of the screen (in the dark), but if I'm working, I don't even notice it.

Bought two monitors, both developed faults.

A. Sanders, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: We bought two, and initially were quite pleased. The build quality is not great - they are very plasticcy and flimsy and the external power supply is a bit of an after-thought. Typical Samsung ... However, the real disappointment is their technical support and customer service. These things are supposed to have a pickup & repair warranty. On both monitors after about a year they independently developed faults (vertical lines on one side of the screen).

Misleading advertising from Samsung

Ben Gilburt, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: This product was previously advertised at WQHD resolution (2560x1440) on their website but only supports a maximum resolution of 1900x1200. Samsung refused to replace my monitor with one matching this specification as their website is 'subject to change'. Awful customer service and blatant false advertising from Samsung.

Didn't seem to last Too Long!

Susan Matthews, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: The screen has been great. I have had it since January 13. Now it has a pixel problem just 9 months later. I could be unlucky and just got a bad one. To make it worse. It was sold to me on Amazon by CUTIO, whom I have tried to contact through amazon and phoned them independently and got no response. The mails were undelivered. I guess I have no recourse but to buy a new one! Half the screen is not useable and flashes at me. I guess I now have a 12" screen in a 24" body!

Kann ich nur abraten

pelumu, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: Die Bildqualität ist echt gut. ABER: Von zwei Geräten, die ich mir gekauft habe, wurde der eine bereits zweimal wegen Defekten getauscht. Vor einer Woche lies sich dann der andere nicht mehr aus dem Sleep-Modus aufwecken. Nach dem Aus- und Einschalen am Netzteil funktionierte er dann wieder. Die Optik: Wer ein wenig auf die Optik seines Bildschirms achtet, dem wird richtig schlecht, wenn er den Monitor von hinten sich ansieht.

Riesige Lichthöfe - somit weitestgehend unbrauchbar

Bernd, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Mein erster Test war die Begutachtung der Homogenitaet der Ausleuchtung (Hintergrundbeleuchtung), welche so schlecht ausfiel, dass ich das Geraet ohne weitere Tests in die Kiste gepackt und zuruckgesendet habe. Die Lichthoefe an den unteren Ecken sind sehr gross und hell (ca. 10x10 cm), das darf bei dieser Preisklasse nicht vorkommen. Das Gehauese ist ausserdem leicht verwindbar, dadurch werden zusätzliche Lichthoefe auch an anderen Stellen sichtbar.

Miserable Qualität

Peter Göbel "Peter Göbel", Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Habe mittlerweile den 2. Monitor und auch dieser ist von extremem Lichthöfen betroffen (siehe Kundenbilder). Laut Datenblatt ist dieses Gerät im Prinzip eine eierlegende Wollmilchsau, aber diese Lichthöfe stören extrem. Morgen kommt der 3. an. Wenn dieser immernoch diese erheblichen Mängel zeigt, werd ich mich wohl wirklich nach einer Alternative umschauen müssen... Update: Auch der 3. Monitor ist miserabel.

  • Excerpt: К засветам и битым пикселям был готов. Битый правда только один, но его не видно, только в тестах. Засвет, нет это мега засвет в нижнем правом углу, видно только на черном фоне, но даже при ярком свете. Но это только цветочки.
