Good monitor until the backlight goes out

Devin R., Newegg
12 November 2013
  • Summary: I hope the 3rd one has its backlight go out before my 36 months of warrantee is up.
  • Pros: 1920x1200. "1080p" is junk for real work on a computer. I LOVE that extra 120px.
  • Cons: Low vertical viewing angle. Backlight went out on the first one after about 12 months of ownership. SAMSUNG replaced it really fast and for 100% free. Backlight on my second unit tonight (25 months after purchase). I am on chat and will have it resolved and sent out tomorrow morning. I am happy w...

Warranty support is awful

Jason F., Newegg
5 July 2012
  • Pros: High resolution and adjustable stand.
  • Cons: Just failed with massive number of vertical lines on left side of display. 2 months left in warranty (purchased 9/14/2009) and Samsung says it's out of warranty.

Nice LCD as long as it stays horizontal

Xingjian L., Newegg
1 June 2012
  • Summary: I don't recommend this for people who wants to use a monitor vertically.
  • Pros: Sharp and large horizontal viewing angle
  • Cons: Very small vertical viewing angle. Even you directly face the monitor, the right or left edge of the screen looks darken.

good. outdated (and out of stock)

Eric M., Newegg
3 March 2012
  • Pros: 1920x1200, great stand, ok contrast, no dead pixels
  • Cons: outdated at this point. newer screens are thinner, have more contrast, better for your eyes. you're paying about a $100 premium on this monitor for the nice stand. it's better to just buy a regular monitor and a separate REALLY nice stand for the same $100. Mine started buzzing, not too loud, but...

  • Summary: Pushing two of these with a 3gb 580GTX via DVI cables. Also running Actual Multiple Monitors (awesome multi-monitor software). It's getting harder to find 24" 1920x1200 monitors out there.
  • Pros: Great 16:10 monitor. Samsung makes a quality monitor. Using two of these at home. Love the screen space with 1920x1200. Use these for productivity and gaming.
  • Cons: Some people don't like the fact that these do not have HDMI or display port. Not an issue for me.

Nice monitor, but has a loud buzz!

Meg M., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Summary: Most of the standard display settings (Custom, Sport, Movie, Dynamic) are set at 100 percent brightness. The presets for Text and Internet are set at much lower brightness levels (38 and 46 or something like that).
  • Pros: Nice, big, bright screen; clear text.
  • Cons: Way too bright to look at for long, and makes buzzing sound if brightness level is reduced below 96 percent.

Great Monitors

Sarah F., Newegg
12 December 2011
  • Summary: These are super duper for most everyone. I'm not going to spend $550 on a 24 inch IPS panel LCD.
  • Pros: Great 1900x1200 monitors, I have a bunch of older 245BW monitors at clients going strong but these are the replacements now. Running three in widescreen. Glad they are back in production.
  • Cons: First manufactured in 2008 so no Displayport... but not really needed. Get the Accell adapter for Eyefinity if you need it . Also be aware this IS a TN pane but then again it's not $600. For 90 percent of us these are great. Sure is better than a 1994 Viewsonic 17 inch CRT (still got one).

It's an OK monitor

Bee V., Newegg
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I also bought a 28" hanns-g from here which have a much better display quaility. I'm only giving this monitor 3 eggs since it didn't impress me.
  • Pros: 1920x1200 24" not that expensive
  • Cons: I'm used to high quality monitors, so the two I bought from here can't compare. Not crisp like a lot of people are saying.
