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. As the tilt progressed I realized it was a defect in the stand. Research this online, or hey, just read all the reviews here and you will find the problem is widespread.

Poor value

Brian, Amazon

  • 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

D. Cornfeld, Amazon
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? The monitor itself is great and so is the price but this stand problem reminds me of "you get what you pay for".

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.
