NEVER BUY USED COMPUTER EQUIPMENT

JJ "johnnyman", Amazon
30 May 2012
  • 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.

!00% Failure Rate - Stay Away!!

N. Kuvshinoff, Amazon

  • 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.

Too many defects!

  • 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.

Unforgiveable manufacturing defects

Christopher J. Peikert, Amazon
15 December 2006
  • 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.

Piece of garbage

  • Summary: I had to replace this monitor 4 times before I gave up and got my money back. From dead pixels to horizontal black lines to parts falling apart Samsung lost it on this one.

Complete crap

James "James S.", Amazon
21 February 2006
  • 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.
