Summary: I really like this monitor. I have three of them. I prefer this form factor. Its more square than rectangular. I was unable to find a store than carries them and had to go on the internet to find them.
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!!! Got this off a floor display from a local PC store in town!!! Owned it for over 3yrs now and never turned it off, cept for when it goes in to "sleep" mode from puter!!!!
Summary: I already had a 204B sitting on my desk and I wanted a dual display setup. My natural choice was to get another 204B, since the resolution 1600x1200 is not offered by any other manufacturer. I like the wide screen and great height, less scrolling on long documents.
Summary: My 17" CRT monitor died. This 20" full screen LCD monitor takes up less deskspace, but allows me to see more rows of data when in spreadsheets. Not as much glare from sunlight streaming in the windows. Online and magazine reviews of this monitor were very positive and I'm reaping the benefit of the experts and user feedback which helped me select this monitor from the thousands out there and available at good prices on E-Bay, Kijiji, Craigslist, etc.
Summary: Bought this to match the 204B work provided so I could have a dual-head display. I tried going with a cheaper unit, but the thin bezel of the 204B and the *matchingness* of it is super cool. Nice resolution, color, everything. And the unit's original box is nicely compact, for such a large monitor.
The best monitor I have ever owned, stunning picture quality

Summary: I am a very critical monitor user. I have all kinds of monitor adjusting and testing software. I need to see the correct color rendition and temperature for scientific purposes. I take digital pictures, and the screen MUST look like what my camera sees. I use this monitor for highly critical picture editing. There are no stuck pixels, no problems whatsoever. The picture quality on this monitor is amazing, stunning. And it is fast rendering, quite good for gaming.
Summary: Most expensive monitor I have ever purchased, but it was worth every penny. After 2+ years (I can't remember exactly), the picture is still very sharp, and I have had no problems using VGA with my PC or DVI with my Mac. I was unable to find a satisfactory DVI 2-monitor solution, but I think that running 2 different resolutions simultaneously is a DVI limitation. Check on it though. The other thing I really like is the maneuverability.

Summary: I've got two of these on a dual monitor gaming system and they're simply the best monitors I've ever had - including my Sony's, which I've been very happy with as well. I know at least four of my gaming bud's have also moved into these monitors - well worth the $$$. They sell out regularly, so get em when you can.
