Decent monitor but has quality issues.

D. Stith, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: This is a pretty good monitor and gave good service until the capacitors inside went bad. Manufactured in 2006, lasted until mid-2010. Good 4 years of service. Typically, with computer hardware mainly involving capacitors and/or moving parts, 3 years is usually given to the lifespan of the component. But this should be of continual use with something having electrolytic capacitors.

Great monitor with one glaring issue

Joseph C. Antone, Amazon
7 October 2007
  • Summary: First off, the pros, This is a really cost-effective, clear, clean monitor with great colors and and good response time for all my games. Comes with vga and DVI inputs and is just a good, solid monitor all around. Then the cons- As mentioned earlier, the stand begins to fail after only a couple of months. The screen will "tilt" forward, with no ability to tilt it back up.

Stuck pixels aside, a beautiful 20" widescreen.

  • Summary: This monitor has an incredible picture, though the darks do suffer from lack of detail sometimes. Perfect for gaming, office work, programming, maybe not so much for hi-def movies. My biggest complaint -- I returned one monitor because it had 3 "stuck" pixels, all of them near the middle of the screen, permanently blue. The second one has one stuck pixel (also blue... problem?) closer to the bottom-left.

The stand is terrible

Shih-Kang Chang, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought mine in 2006, and now my monitor is tilt down, too. Indeed, the stand is terribly designed not to be able to hold the weight of the monitor. Otherwise, it's a great monitor.

Monitor Samsung

vogt heiner, Amazon

  • Summary: der Monitor wurde, wahrscheinlich beim Transport etwas kräftiger geschütelt, weil nachdem Auspacken entdeckte ich einen Spalt zwischen Bildschirm und der Abdeckung. Kurz danach wo ich der Monitor schon aufbaute, fiel mir auf, dass er leicht nach links hängt, d,h die Alu-Halterung, auf der der Monitor befestigt ist, läuft mit einem großen Spiel zwischen 2 Kunststoffschienen. Ansonsten er Funktiert gut und Bildqualität ist eigentlich i.O.

Attention au vice de fabrication

guipascal, Ciao

  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce moniteur pour l'utiliser comme télé en le branchant sur ma freebox grâce à un câble hdmi-dvi. Tout d'abord, j'ai été satisfait de la qualité de l'image, ainsi que de la possibilité de brancher un câble dvi ET un câble vga. A noter qu'il y a un bouton pour sélectionner l'entrée analogique ou numérique, qu'il faut utiliser même s'il n'y a de signal que sur une des deux entrées.
  • Pros: bonne image, connectique
  • Cons: support défectueux
