Reliability Problems

John M. Cacavas "johnnymbz", Amazon

  • 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.

Nice monitor... if you never turn it off.

  • Summary: I'm on my second Samsung SyncMaster 204B and experiencing the same problems as the first. Whenever you put your computer into sleep mode or switch off the monitor, a problem develops: When you switch it back on, the picture becomes gradually dimmer with a noticeable flicker over time.

Alright for a normal computer

  • Summary: The Samsung SyncMaster 204b is alright for any normal computer. If you use 1280x1024 resolution however, you will be really pissed off. Don;t buy if your looking for a gaming monitor. Bad for graphic designers too. Good for use in normal family computer needs despite it's 1600x1200x32 problem.

Poor picture quality

J. Pelham, Amazon
1 August 2008
  • Summary: Pros: It lights up and displays stuff. Cons: Tested on two different PCs, it has poor gamma and gray-scale tracking. Near-whites are clipped into white. The MagicTune software can mostly correct these issues, but it is a pain to use.

Great When it works but support sucks

A. H. Ahlberg "perpetual tyro", Amazon

  • Summary: Most folks report good things about this monitor and I don't doubt them but my experience has so far been very different. I bought this unit in late August. The unit arrived in perfect working order and with NO dead pixels.

Not suited for Graphics

PixelGeek "H", Amazon

  • Summary: For the money this Monitor is great, especially if you are using it just for surfing or word-processing! It has some of the best specs out there such as very fast response and natural looking colors. HOWEVER, its not the right choice for pro-level graphic design or photo editing.
