Summary: The factory stand does not rotate for portrait mode. I needed to use this monitor in portrait mode so I modified the monitor. Remove the stand from the monitor. Notice the 2 square holes for the attachment tabs. Make 2 more holes, 90 degrees to the others, so the monitor stand can be rotated.
Summary: Background: I'm using the Samsung 205BW with HP Pavilion a1610n. I replaced a 19" Gateway monitor (not sure of the model since I got rid of it already) that died. The system is used for work running Office 2007, Vista Business, Adobe 7 Professional, Firefox/IE 7, Cisco VPN & RDP.
Summary: I bought this wide format monitor for home use with my (work provided) HP laptop. At the office I have one of those glorious ultra-high resolution does-it-all flat panels which also feature an *amazing* price. When it's my own money, I need to be a bit more careful.

Summary: I upgraded from a 17" LCD. Let me tell you this is like moving from a 2 bedroom condo in the city to a 5 bedroom mansion in the country. Soo much real estate. You can do double duty with this, browse on one side and open another application on the other.
Summary: I am upgrading from a 19" CRT monitor that I had a great picture. I am just amazed what LCD technology can do! The text is now so much clearer and the colors are much sharper! The monitor is just amazing! Words of warning.
Summary: i bought this product for work, as useing a bigger screen helps with large spread sheets. i like the high qualty picture and size of the screen,all so the adjustable hight features make it a pleasure to use.it has a very sharp picture.
Summary: I now own 3 of these monitors which attests to how good I think they are. Before making this purchase, I again did some research hoping maybe to find something different for the sake of novelty but concluded that these are the best.
Excerpt: I bought this monitor in 2005 when I built my current PC. It's a great bit of kit, quite stylish and plenty of adjustment for your preference. Turn it on, and the picture is crisp with great colour distinction.
