Summary: Monitor picture was great but definitely look elsewhere! The base was unbelievably cheap. And after several attempts to mount it differently, it became clear it wasn't me. The screen was tilted. The base was molded at a slight angle do the screen sat on it at an angle. Returned it. I would look at asus.
Summary: Great monitor with a very small profile. Looks good on any desk and does not take up a lot of space. The major issue I have with it is that it does NOT have a VESA mounting pattern to it and therefore cannot be mounted on a stand. This was the main reason I bought it.
Summary: I would buy this several times over. Luckily I don't have to because the one I have is awesome and I don't need another. Viewing angle on this screen is amazing. Great addition to my laptop. Packaging and shipping were both excellent.

Summary: This monitor is incredible, I did my best to read as much as I could about buying the best possible device as far as popping colors. I really wanted a monitor that I could use for watching movies in high definition, and for reading pdf style books and working on power point presentations. Turning on the "game mode" feature gives amazing popping colors that make watching movies a real delight. When the game mode is turned off, text appears very sharp and clear.
Viewing angle is great for two person discussions.

Summary: Wide viewing angle is especially noticeable when sitting by a different model. Users with two monitors are quickly spoiled by it. When two people need to look at the same screen both can get a good view.
Buy this monitor unless you want to mount it on a stand or wall.

Summary: I really wanted to keep this monitor. I really did. I had to return it because it is not a VESA compatible monitor. I purchased a two monitor desk stand in order to get the screens off my desk but could not mount this monitor. I did not know about the whole VESA thing and assumed that all monitors could be mounted. Well you know what they say about assuming things.
Summary: The size and image quality is amazing. Great for the price. HOWEVER the monitor is very wobbley. Even a few clicks of the mouse or keyboard will send the monitor side to side like a seesaw. Samsung really dropped the ball with the stand for the monitor. Feels like cheap plastic.
