Good office monitor.

Summary: Bright, very high contrast picture giving photographs an unreal quality. Colors only six bits and not comparable with a Samsung 214T that's a few years old. The viewing angle is narrower than claimed at first, but gets wider with a few days time.
Summary: Pro's: * Great for playing games or watching movies * Beautiful looking monitor with every adjustment (height, tilt, pivot, and rotate) you could possibly want * Reasonable color reproduction * Built in sound Cons: * Larger does not always mean better.
Summary: I chose this monitor as an emergency replacement for my Dell 26" Monitor which failed. Overall, I am very pleased given the low price I paid. The speakers are probably the weakest feature - they sound tinny but are adequate for my purposes. The screen colors are good if viewed from a direct angle.
sharp, bright, but too blue and the controls are very hard to use

Summary: The image on this display is bright and sharp. It has fairly good contrast. The size is very nice too. However... The color is far too blue, even with color adjustments, but not enough to ruin the experience, but enough to nag at your attention if you use more than 1 display together.
Summary: I'm planning on purchasing this monitor and have done plenty of research on a lot of the 24-26 inch monitors...Samsung, Viewsonic, Sceptre and others. First off....this monitor is Vista compliant....which means this monitor is HCDP compliant.
Summary: For the most part I really like this monitor, looks and functions great with the exception that I can hear a high-pitched hiss emanating from it. If you are somebody that can hear higher frequencies than normal ears, I'd evaluate if the hiss bothers you.
Summary: I almost bought this, but there is an issue with it. It has an HDMI port to plug in your HD cable box, xbox, blue-ray player etc. What they don't tell you (and I had to hunt extensively on the Samsung site to figure this out), was that these monitors don't come with HDCP. What does that mean?
