How do I get a replacement stand
2 July 2012
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?

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.
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 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".
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.
