Very good, for the price: VERY VERY good

Summary: I replaced a 19 inch non-wide screen flat panel with this monitor. I am not going to write a bunch of technical stuff here, one: I don't understand that stuff and 2: I suspect most people reading this don't either. I will say that set up was very good, though I suspect there are some issues with some of the software and Vista compatibility. It was not hard to figure it out. The picture is very good, no dead pixels that I can see and the colors are very good.
Summary: I bought this monitor for video gaming, and it is performing very well for that. The screen is bright and the colors are vivid and well-balanced. I had no dead pixels and no problem with light bleed-through. On-screen adjustments are simple and it is easy to match the brightness and contrast of the screen to a changing environment. There is no visible ghosting and the fine detail makes video games more immersive.
Summary: I bought this monitor at CompUSA. It's almost perfect, but I have three gripes about it: 1. The stand on my monitor isn't quite straight, making the monitor unlevel. That is, it's rotated slightly counter-clockwise. I couldn't see any way to adjust the stand or take it apart, so I just put some paper underneath the left side of the stand.... 2.
Summary: One of the crazes of 2006-2007 seems to be monitors, and many people seem to get specs-crazy. For good reason though - who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a piece of bad hardware? I'll attempt to cover most of the major topics people are worried about. Panel Technology: Definitely a TN Panel. At the time of this review, most 22" panels are manufactured by Chimei, which I believe is a Taiwanese company.
Summary: I just got this monitor during the Thanksgiving frenzy and purchased it on a whim (for 299$) without checking any reviews before. I have been using different Samsung 15" and 19" Monitors so far and always have been thrilled about their quality and image display. The first thing I noticed when Windows boots up, was same backlight bleeding on the top and bottom of the display frame, i.e. it was not totally black as it should be.
Summary: I replaced a Hyundai L90D+ with this monitor. After staring at a 4:3 monitor for a couple of years, it's going to take some time to get used to the additional real estate provide by this LCD. Beyond that, it came with cables (DVI *and* analog), and most important of all, a height-adjustable stand which is the primary reason I selected this monitor over all of the other 22-inchers. Out of the box, no stuck or dead pixels at all.
Summary: The monitor is beautifull, its image its very clear, 5 ms of response! 22" widescreen its enough to feel confortable when you are working with multiple windows opened at the same time. The price its razonable, no dead pixels, excellent product.
Beautiful image display, a little light on features

Summary: I have had this monitor about a week now and love the way the display looks. It is bright, even, and beautiful. I am using it with my G4 PowerBook (with the lid closed and an external keyboard & mouse). It even came with the right cable. The PowerBook scaled to the monitor's native resolution flawlessly, and now I feel like I got a new computer! For such a large monitor, the price was fantastic.
Excerpt: Уж не знаю,сколько лет моему монитору:) Но немало,не меньше 5,как мне кажется. За это время успевал сгореть,а теперь уже второй год посередине экрана вертикальная ярко-желтая полоса толщиной в нитку. Хотя,может,у других вообще мониторы столько не живут. Когда мужу покупали Acer, консультанты отговаривали, все пальцем тыкали в "Самсунг",но вот у него Асер работает уже несколько лет идеально,а мой ломается. Но в целом довольна,глаза не напрягаю.
