Summary: I was expecting to receive a piano black with the same or better sharpness and clarity as the other three. Needless to say I was disappointed and shortly after I gave it to my financial adviser whose company was still using the big antiquated bulkt screens. He was tickled to have that especially at no cost to him. I purchased a Samsung 245 BW with piano black. Looks great and great resolution.
Summary: I've owned this monitor for 6 months and it's developed an entire line of dead pixels dead center of the display. At first the line was only occasionally visible, but now it appears within 5 minutes of turning on and doesn't go away. It really is a shame because the monitor has be great in every other respect. Was the perfect gaming monitor with it's fast response time.
Summary: Well, I guess its allright. A good price, nice and bright, with decent colors. The stand is cheap plastic and overall build quality seems to lack a sense of perfection. The backlight bleed is very apparent, with a big white shadow leaking onto the screen, especially when dark or black. A solid black display reveals other unevenness or "banding", which is less apparent during most normal operation. I expect a new monitor to be well built and clean looking.
Summary: This is a beautiful monitor with clear picture. The problem is stupidity at Samsung. Many Samsung widescreen monitors rotate 90 degrees, so you can view a long document. This monitor even comes with the software to do this (MagicRotation) but the stand is not built to allow the monitor to rotate. It will raise in height, tilt front to back, and swivel side to side. No rotation! What a disappointment!
