Summary: Advertised as new but packaging was already opened. The CD package torn open and crudely re-taped closed. Same for power cord and other items. The Samsung box although it appears to be the original box, it exhibited great signs of undue wear.
Summary: Nice looking monitor, easy set up. Purchased new, and received new. Using Amazon Prime, received free shipping in two business days. The dimensions of the monitor are mostly accurate, the height with stand measures 19.25", not the 18.7" advertised.
Awesome display esp for those getting older that dont want to squint

Summary: I got this mainly due to needing a bigger display and getting closer to my mid 30's my vision is not was it used to be, for my applications like maya, 3dsmax photoshop its great along with my hobby of reading on the internet and gaming.
Summary: Good quality picture and great to have the integrated speakers - the sound is just fine - for my purposes i.e. personal/busines/home use. Not sure the look/feel quite lives up to the hype of the marketing - the base has a bit of a cheap plastic look/feel to it (nothing like the pictures).
