Samsung HDTV

Cathie, REVIEW STREAM

  • Excerpt: We purchase a Samsung HDTV at Sears a few months ago. It is so amazing at how more detailed this tv shows the shows, colors and it is so detailed! There was a lot of things to learn about it.

Light bleed

Bob "Bob", Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: While this monitor would be an excellent office monitor, and it's great for viewing Word, Excel and Visio documents (they do look so much better on a high-resolution monitor), the light bleed in the lower right corner (as many others have complained about so it's not just my monitor) makes it very unsatisfying for watching movies or viewing photos in full-screen, so I don't recommend this as a home monitor. Besides the light bleed problem, the quality is excellent.

Not Mac compatible

Mac Addict, B&H Photo
18 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I used this product just long enough to discover that it was not compatible with Mac computers. It was purchased due to its supposedly better resolution than the ViewSonic monitor I use alongside an iMac. Unfortunately, I found that Samsung (probably by design) does not supply a Mac-compatible driver for it. Back into the shipping containers!
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Not Compatible With Mac

Great color and text.

RP77, B&H Photo
4 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I've had this monitor for approx. one and one half years. I use it with a MacBook Pro and also with an 09 Mini running Snow Leopard which I only use for a film scanning program that was never updated for Lion or above. Love the Thunderbolt port. Works great with Mini Display port on the Mini. Love the matte finish. I'm a writer and can stare at text for hours (I turn brightness down) without eye strain. Watching video from web or disc is beautiful on this monitor.

Love it, except for the power

Sam, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had this monitor for a little over a year now and almost have nothing bad to say about it. "Almost", because I dislike how it handles the power cord. The transformer brick is located close to where you plug it into the monitor. So close, in fact, that as a result, the brick has to sit on my desk, vs tucked away behind the desk out of sight. May not be a problem for some desk setups, though. This also means the bulk of the powercord is heavy, bulky 120v line.

does not play well with my system, poor design

pete, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: Have 2 of these hooked up at work via display port. it is miracle if they get detected after i un-dock my laptop. i have to power cycle the displays and sometimes reboot the system. sometimes it has taken up to 45 minutes of this nonsense to get the monitors up and running! I am not sure if the monitors are to blame however a coworker has the exact same setup (same laptop, docking station, OS) except he runs HP monitors and has never had this issue.

Simple...it's awesome

mellowlove, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: As a photo and graphics editor, color and detail are most important to me. I have two of these next to each other that simply make my job easier. As well, for the same performance, you could pay considerably more. Get one... My one wish: An additional display port but no need in knocking it for that.

Great Photo editing monitor

BowserB, B&H Photo
21 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Big monitor with higher than HD resolution and a very sharp picture--exactly what you need for photo editing. Another use for this big hi-res screen is Excel spreadsheets--you can see many columns and many rows at one time. Wow, it's a spreadsheet game changer. This monitor is plenty bright (I'm using at brightness level 13/100 for photo editing in a dimly lit room). Color also excellent. Great value. B&H price was $150 lower than a major online everything retailer!
  • Pros: High Resolution, Picture Quality, Value, Versatile

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: This is a pretty expensive monitor, but it is worth it. It is sharp and bright and elegant. I bought one, and liked it so much, I bought another.
