Summary: i had this for over 3 years and i still am amazed how good it is. great clarity, color and vibrancy. it cost me about $800+ when i bought it, but its been a great investment. the key reason i bought it was the fact that it can rotate into the portrait mode.
Summary: I purchased this a little less than 4 years ago. Yesterday the screen started flashing. Switched cables, cards, etc. Monitor is bad, and no warranty remaining. For what I paid, I would expect it to last longer. Wont buy Samsung again.
Summary: We bought 5 of these at work. Out of the 5, 3 died within the 3 year warranty. We got a Samsung 2693HM as a warranty replacement. It died after being in service for 1 week. Awaiting replacement on 2 that are currently out on warranty, and hoping that Samsung takes care of the 2693 as well.
Summary: I've now owned this monitor for a year and still love it to the extent that I would buy another today. I went from a mitsubishi 20" CRT which is the same as a Sony trinitron monitor. My mitsu was big and cumbersome and starting to take a dive.
Summary: The display certainly presents images with extreme clarity. This is very valuable when doing on screen photo manipulation. I did find the adjustment tools that come with the monitor to be confusing.
Summary: This monitor is great because it has superb brightness, the viewing angle allows it to be watched from around the room, and the stand is very flexible and makes the monitor easy to use. I'm also happy there are so many inputs, which can allow a DVD player to be hooked up to this device.
Summary: I'm spolied for life. In my office I have (2) 19" monitors and was feeling a little cramped up at home so I went researching large'ish monitors for my personal system...I couldn't be happier. I did a considerable amount of research, and utlimately it came down to the Dell 24" or the Samsung.

Summary: I am still getting used to the whole Rectangle thing.. I loved my true 22in flat CRT.. But it is going out on me.. So I looked around and it was a toss up between this and that 22in Flat panel with the 3000:1 contrast ratio with a 2ms responce time..
