Summary: I have the same issue as everyone else with this stand. Mines is out of manufactures warranty, but I called Samsung opened a service ticket and they refuse to replace it. Any ideas on the right people of talk with at Samsung about this? Thanks
Summary: I got this monitor back in 2007, and for a while I worked like a charm. But just as soon as the warranty was to expire, the hardware inside went bad, just like clockwork. I actually sent it in to repair past the date of the warranty's expiration.
Summary: This is a pretty good monitor and gave good service until the capacitors inside went bad. Manufactured in 2006, lasted until mid-2010. Good 4 years of service.

Summary: I bought this monitor from local store in my city about an year and a half back. This is a very sharp and bright display with very good color rendition and I bought it primarily for photoshop work. So, all in all, a very competent display unit.
Summary: This is a pretty decent monitor, until it develops a fault and you're sucked into the black hole that is Samsung's repair/refurbishment hell. Samsung have a generous three year warranty, during which time your faulty monitor will be replaced free of charge.
