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.
Summary: I like this monitor most. When I compared with normal computer monitor,it's very very gorgeous quality & function. I strongly suggest to buy this product to all of customers. All of customers will be satisfied with this product.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
