Excerpt: In electronics the name Samsung is equivalent to quality. I have a Samsung 44" TV which I would be hard up to let go and I have 4 Samsung monitors used on my home LAN. I bought this one to go with my Home Theater computer because I'm not always using the computer with the TV on or it's in use when I want to do something on that computer.
Excerpt: Much better monitor than my old 25 inch HP monitor. The picture clarity is amazing and almost like looking at the real thing, ie., the picture leaps out at you when viewing shots like those from Web Shots.
Summary: Great monitor for working with side by side apps. Supplied cable is actually HDMI to DVI so your video card will need an HDMI output to use this monitor's DVI input with the supplied cable. You can always get a standard DVI cable or use the supplied VGA cable.
Excerpt: I've been using this monitor for a couple months mostly for CAD work. The default settings were perfect for me right out of the box. It is very bright - it has little to no glare and the contrast and color are spot on. I will say that this is a very large monitor and it may be too large for some applications. I connect this to my laptop with the same resolution but a smaller screen.
Excerpt: Experiencing vision problems, I needed to go a larger monitor. I went from a 20" to this 27" and I love it. I must admit I miss the built in speakesr that were in the 20" but Russell Martin helped me solve the problem with a small speaker that clips on the monitor. The sound quality is excellent. .
