Both monitors defective

Jared P., Newegg
13 May 2009
  • Summary: My friend told me I'd regret getting a Samsung and I should get an Acer instead. He's been proven right twice, and that irks me as much as the defective monitors themselves.
  • Pros: Good picture quality, great for gaming. Reasonable support from samsung.
  • Cons: I purchased two of these monitors about 6 months ago...After 3 or 4 months one started flickering when it first was turned on. It progressively got worse and worse until the monitor stopped working completely. Samsung's support website was slow and worthless, but their phone support was exception...

Another try at avoiding rebate

mark c., Newegg
2 January 2009
  • Pros: Very nice monitor; clear and crisp. Works very well.
  • Cons: Not really against the monitor, but once again samsung rebates are trying to scam me. Got this monitor for a good deal over Thanksgiving with a $50 rebate. Had read the reviews of the monitor and saw that their rebate process isn't very good. I thought to myself and said, "I've never had a proble...

I would have given it 5 Stars, EXCEPT....

John C., Newegg
30 December 2008
  • Summary: The stand was easy to attach by just following the directions that came with the stand base. I subtracted 1 star for each dead pixel and wish I hadn't recommended it for a Customer Choice Award.
  • Pros: Great picture and good Brightness/Contrast range. It has easy to use controls and was priced great at $179 after of course a $50 rebate.
  • Cons: It looked great with no dead pixels until 2 1/2 weeks after I started using it when 2 or 3 dead pixels showed up on the lower part of the display, about 1/4" and 1/2" up from the bottom and a little over 1/3 of the way across the bottom from the right. One looks like it may be 2 dead pixels is wh...

Quality Picture, Cheap/fast, No VESA & Awful Stand. P.S NO VESA

John V., Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: If you have an extra $100+ to get a similar monitor with HDMI added, please get me a job at your company. Otherwise buy the $5 DVI/HDMI converter from newegg. no dead pixles (until i killed them all)
  • Pros: Samsung has hands down best picture for consumer grade LCD, and the $ for it here screams 'buy it now'. Cheap. 2ms is nice, no ghosting for my demanding office apps :-P . Pixel pitch of 0.28 keeps the text nice and big enough to read at native resoultion, as opposed to the new 22" 1080p which is ...
  • Cons: NO VESA MOUNTS. Seriously, WTFOMG/LYMP, I can accept that it ships with a awful stand, but if I want to buy my own sturdy one with height adustment and whatnot I should be able to do that. Especially with a nice monitor like this, i was planning a dual monitor mount, but SAMSMUG IS THE ONLY COMPA...

Wibbly Wobbly.........

Ralph, Amazon
30 January 2011
  • Summary: Whilst i can't grumble at the picture quality of this monitor , the con's far outweigh the pro's. The resolution is a modest 1680 x 1050 and worse of all the monitor is sooooooo wobbly. I have a solid mahogany desk, never had any problems with any other monitors but this things is infuriating.

Schickes Design, Qualität schlecht

Chris, Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Das Design dieses Monitors hat uns sehr gut gefallen, der schwarze Klavierlack ist zwar Geschmackssache aber ich finde es besser als "normal" aussehendes Plastik. Abzug gibt es, weil der Monitor kurz vor Ablauf der Garantie kaputt gegangen ist, das Display ist im Gehäuse einfach runtergerutscht.

User Review

29 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Первое время модель приводила в восторг. В то время я не имел опыта общения с другими ЖК и был уверен, что SAMSUNG - лучшее что есть на рынке. Сейчас я уже понял что глубоко ошибался. В настоящее время у меня есть два монитора: один LG, а второй Hewlett Packard.
  • Pros: Быстрый отклик пикселя, дизайн, огромные (для его времени) углы обзора, два разъёма.
  • Cons: Во-первых ужасные цвета: уже через полчаса работы глаза начинают жутко болеть. Контрастность тоже подводит: уже два года никак не могу настроить его под себя. Ну и наконец - жутко ненадёжные кнопки: уже через год кнопка включения стала переключать между разъёмами, а сейчас так и вообще накрылась....

Não gostei

OTTODEITZ, MercadoLibre
14 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Os contras que citei são características de todos os LCD, não especificamente deste modelo. Recomendo portanto a compra de um monitor de plasma ou até mesmo um convencional de TRC.
  • Pros: Belo acabamento., Nenhum dead pixel.
  • Cons: Pouco contraste., Base não move., LED do monitor fica piscando quando micro está desligado., Diferença de luminosidade entre a parte superior e inferior., A cor preta não é totalmente escura.
