Summary: I am a CPA and use this monitor in Landscape mode to view full pages of tax returns at one time. I had the 19.1 inch model which was also NON wide screen. I am very happy with this monitor for this use.
Summary: I purchased this monitor at the end of April 2012 and it arrived, as promised, on May 1, 2012. I integrated it into my system and it worked just fine - until tonight, May 30, 2012 - one month later. The monitor no longer functions and I am now out of $112.00. I have now learned my lesson four times.
Summary: Unfortunately, Samsung has chosen to use substandard Chinese capacitors which last just slightly longer than the warranty period, and this creates wild flickering problems followed by complete monitor failure.
Summary: This monitor arrived without a problem. So far it is working beautifully, hope that as a refurbished model it will hold up for a couple of years. Thank you for having this available as this model no longer is produced.
Summary: Well, the last one has died. I purchased six of these monitors in the 2007-2008 time frame for dual-monitor office use. All six have now died on me. When they were still under warranty, I replaced two of them when they died, so really eight of them uniformly failed. They all died in the same way.
Summary: This is the 2nd Monitor by Samsung i have owned....previously had 203b model...THE BACKLIGHTING WENT OUT IN THAT MODEL, so i got this one!!! wish it went up to 1080p Resolution....instead it is only 1600x1200...but it looks great on all my new games with my 2x BFG 9800GT OCX SLi Setup!!!
