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. They sent me my junk monitor back, along with another refurbished one a few days later. It had seemed to work fine for about a year until now...
Summary: One year and two months after purchasing this monitor, the screen failed. Samsumg is sending a "refurbished" replacement - I am terrified about what that might mean. What a shame - I like the monitor. Good thing I had an old CRT kicking around as back up - seems you can't kill those, but the flat screens are a different story.
Summary: I have this monitor for a year and I have to support it with a piece of wood. The stand is worse that a plastic toy. Sometimes I wonder, do they care for their product or they just market it and if people buy it, good, if not they move to the next. For this reason I will never buy another Samsung product.
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. Unfortunately, your replacement model will be a refurbished model rather than a brand new model and thus prone to even more problems. I bought a brand new 205BW -- the CBQ hardware revision -- back in September 2006.
Summary: To echo the comments made by the last couple reviewers. The LCD Monitor started to tilt way from the stand and within the last week, decided to give way and has peeled away from it's support hinge on the stand. While the LCD Monitor itself is pretty good, i can't give any more than 2 stars given this issue.
Summary: I bought this monitor six months ago. Upon setting it up initially, I was slightly peeved at the fact that the screen could never quite be adjusted to a 90-degree angle with the desk. At best, it tilted slightly downward. Now, six months later, gravity has had it's way with the spring tensioner in the stand, and screen now rests at around a 60-degree angle with level. I've got the stand sitting on a pile of books just to be able to look upwards at it.
Summary: fdas einzig positive an diesem monitor ist sein verstellbarer arm, der nachfolger hat meiner meinung nach ein viel besseres bild, stärkeren kontrast nur fehlt im der richtige ständer aber damit kann man leben.
Summary: Diese Rezension gilt nur professionelle Anwendung! - Nachdem ich mich tagtäglich drüber ärgere, muss ich's mal hier loswerden, damit anderen diese Erfahrung erspart bleibt: Zum grafischen Arbeiten sind diese Monitore absolut ungeeignet. Die Farben sind zwar toll, der Kontrast ist okay - aber einfärbige Farbflächen erscheinen stets als Farbverlauf, wenn man nicht den einzig richtigen Blickwinkel hat. Helle Farben verblassen teilweise ganz.
