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.

Poor value

Brian, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • 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.

Worthless

15 September 2007
  • Summary: I am very computer literate and techno-savy, i.e. I know how to build a computer, install drivers, etc . . . Out of the box the monitor does not work. Who needs this kind of aggrivation.

Get stand replaced

P. Echelbarger, Amazon
1 August 2007
  • 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?

Very Poor Stand

chicagoamanda, Amazon
16 July 2007
  • 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.

Excellent for 2 minutes!

KC, Amazon
5 July 2007
  • 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.
