Summary: I purchased this monitor to have a large display that I could use in portrait mode. I used it at the office to show client presentations and it works great and provides a large enough screen to view from a few feet away. This is exactly what I wanted.
Summary: THE MOST HARM DONE TO MY CUSTOMER SUPPORT VIEW OF SAMSUNG PRODUCTS IS THE ABANDONMENT OF RESPOSIBLITY TO TO REPAIR THE BD-P1200 FIREWARE SCREW-UP .. I PAID AROUND $500 FOR THE BD-P1200 .. ABT. A FEW MONTHS OUT OF WARRANTY A FIRMWARE UPDATE LEFT MY PLAYER NON-OPERATIONAL ..
Summary: I have owned this monitor for nearly a year and I still love it. It sat next to a 24" Samsung for quite a while and is now my only monitor. The brightness is a little much and can't really be tweaked, the color is off somewhat and there's a lot of back light bleed through at the edges.
Summary: Just got this monitor, and my main concern was all the comments about the touch buttons. I just can not figure what the complaints are. They are easily visible - they have labels. They work very nicely.
Summary: I replaced a 19" Viewsonic VX924 with this monitor, and so far my choice has been a good one. My monitor had 0 dead pixels, which was the first thing I looked for when I got it connected. The second thing I did when I got the monitor, was turn the brightness down.
Summary: I did a lot of research on monitors, learning the lingo which had changed since my last monitor purchase. I upgraded from a 21" Sony Trinitron Multiscan 500PS which I was very happy with, but Sony no longer makes monitors so I was back to square one.
Summary: I had been looking for a new monitor for about a year, I wanted a large monitor for photo editing. My trusty AOC monitor was dying. I chose the 2693HM monitor because the 30 inch monitors seemed very inflexible.
Summary: I'm not a monitor expert, but I love this one. I wanted a 26 inch that would rotate & this one does a great job. The rotate software doesn't seem to work with my system, but I simply click 90-degree rotate on my NVIDIA video card menu & it works fine.
Summary: I've had this monitor for a while now and I've been very happy with it. I love the size and quality of the display. I don't mind the "invisible" buttons, I think it makes it look cool and it's not that hard to work around. The only qualm I've had with it is the internal speakers.
Summary: I use the screen for non-demanding tasks (software development), and the screen quality meets or exceeds expectations. My complaint is about the plastic enclosure. First, the buttons are touch-sensitive areas of the plastic rather than real buttons, and I constantly have trouble getting the buttons...
