Very low quality - beware of repeating problems!

Tomer Shiran "T. Shiran", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this monitor and received one that was defective. There was a green stripe down the middle, and I could make it go away by hitting the top of the monitor with my hand - but it would come back after a few minutes. Interestingly, I just noticed that another customer posted a picture here of his monitor with the same problem. It looks like this is a repeating issue with the monitor. I called Samsung, and they sent me a refurbished one to replace my new one.

Stay away, buy the HP

A. Lim, Amazon

  • Summary: First off, I purchased this before I read about the "S" and "A" or "P" panels that are out. The new panels that are released are no longer carrying any letters on the back, and after searching around I could not find a way to get to the service screen to check who made the panel, it has been changed. I have read that Samsung stopped making the panels as of a couple of months ago, and are now all the inferior panels.

monitor bad after only 6 month- replaced with refurbished one.

  • Summary: I would not recommend this monitor. I had one for six months and it went bad. Was lied to by their cutomer service people about getting a new monitor since it was only 6 months old. After 2 weeks waiting found out nothing had been done and I was told that their warranty states when your monitor goes bad it will be replaced with refurbished unit. There customer service sent replacement monitor to wrong address.

Awful Flicker Problem and Samsung Deception

Nathan D. Smith, Amazon
16 October 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this product on Amazon in October 2007. It was very easy to set up and had a very bright screen. However, I quickly noticed that colors between light blue and dark grey had a constant horizontal flickering. The darker the color (except black) the worse the flickering was. I began to research this produce more online and found that there are actually three different classes of this product model - A, S, and C.

No todo lo que reluce es oro

  • Summary: Bueno después de darle muchas vueltas a que tft comprar y mirar infinidad de paginas web con información, me decidí por este modelo. En la actualidad los monitores tft montan tres tipos diferentes de paneles: - Los IPS tienen una gran calidad de color, por lo que se usan en aplicaciones de diseño profesionales, pero son muy lentos y no demasiado indicados para uso normal en el hogar.
  • Pros: DVI con HDCP
  • Cons: Llevan panel TN, diferentes fabricantes de paneles, Nefasto servicio técnico
