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: 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.
Manufacturing Defects will have you wasting your time

Summary: It takes something really great or really annoying to get me to write a review, so here's a warning to anyone considering buying this monitor. I am now awaiting my SECOND REPLACEMENT monitor from Samsung after two in a row have an extremely problematic defect of the screen flickering to black while...
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS MONITOR! We made a big mistake by buying 15 of these monitors for our office. 9 of them turned out to be defected. When monitors are connected through DVI, the screen blacks-out every few minutes. We've also had a terrible experience with Samsung's tech support.
Summary: I am now on my third one of these, and all have had the same horrible defect: when using the digital (DVI) input, the image randomly flickers off and on at unpredictable times. It is incredibly annoying, and gives me a headache as well as interferes with my work.
Summary: This monitor worked perfectly for the first 3 weeks. Was absolutely satisfied with price & quality. Unfortunately after 3 weeks, I had an entire horizontal line of dead pixels right in the middle of the screen.
Summary: WARNING! --- I was very impressed by this monitor when we first got it (hence the 5 star rating). I've had it just over a year now. In that time it's begun to randomly blink on and off. It's also developed some yellow discoloration in the pixels in the corners which is getting worse.
