Former Samsung Addict says: This monitor is garbage....

Summary: I purchased this monitor just over a year ago. I began having the "defective stand problem" after only a few months, but at first the tilt was subtle, and I thought it was just a part of the stand's design that it would'nt go totally vertical.
Summary: I have the same problem with the stand and called Samsung customer support. They are sending me a replacement stand at no cost. How many are being sold with the old defective style stand? Is the replacement stand an improvement over the old one?
Summary: A stand that can't hold the weight of the screen (poor adjustment range even if it could), three stuck pixels, uneven brightness on a dark screen. Poor value at any price. I wouldn't buy a Samsung product again, despite their great looks.
Summary: I got the same experience as another user. This stand is not strong enough. It seems that the monitor stand cannot support the weight of the screen and slumps/tilts forward over time (a few months). Now I can't even tilt it up to facing straight forward.
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: Received the 205bw today - worked straight out of the box with bright vibrant colours typical of Samsung (I have been a IIyama fan up to now). After 2 minutes I decided to reduce the brightness as it was set to '100' and was pretty intense.
