Best monitor at any price
6 August 2012
Summary: I already had two of these excellent monitors, and one blew a fuse. I took it apart and replaced the fuse and have had no more problems with it. At the time it was several years old with many thousands of hours of use, so it's not a reliability issue. It has worked just fine ever since. But in trying to find a suitable replacement, I could find nothing even close to the price range that was half the monitor of the Samsung 2693HM.
Summary: Excellent purchase on eBay! I purchased this product to serve as backup for a unit I already own (and love). Side-by-side this is exactly like mine but brighter (which means that two years of use of my "old" one has dimmed the brightness a bit). Very satisfied.
Summary: I have tried all types of monitors but this time, I wanted a very large display with popping images and colors, great text for long viewing sessions and I also wanted something that would look good on my desk. I was also hoping to find a display that had swivel and pivot features. This Samsung 26" monitor (if you can find it) is fantastic and fits all of my requirements mentioned.
Summary: New Edit: After using this monitor well over a year, I must say, at this point I don't want anything else. The complaint someone made about it graying at the top may have something to do with the visor on his head. J/K. Yes, there is very minimal change when tilting the monitor up and down. But once it's set, I love it. It displays Blu-ray quite well with HDMI cable and I do plenty of PS image modification with it.
Summary: I absolutely love this monitor! I did read a review previously posted that the color was a little bright(which is true). I purchased this monitor last year at Best Buy for about $320... Looking at the prices, I should have purchased 2!!!
Simply put, the best monitor I have ever used. Ever.

Summary: I am a part-time professional photographer so monitor quality is important to me. I have used mostly Apple brand monitors over the past few years because I have found that they were the sharpest and most accurate for the price. I never could quite get settled on a particular one, however. I have tried many, many other brands of LCD monitors (besides Apple) over the years trying to get that perfect fit and I believe my serch is over. I love this monitor.
Summary: I bought this for a pc monitor. I own TV's and don't play alot of games . For surfing the net or editing my pictures it does a great job. The factory settings were way off. If you want a bright monitor this is it. It came with the brightness set at 100 and the contrast set at 75. Now the brightness is set at 36 and the contrast is set at 4. I looked at alot of monitors before getting this one.
Finally, Wide Display with decent dot pitch 0.2865mm

Summary: I did not have a good luck with 20",22",24" monitors, mostly due to the very small pixel size 0.25 - 0.27mm. I only feel comfortable with 4:3 19" monitors with pixel size 0.291mm. Anything smaller would usually put more stress on my/your eyes. It could be improved a little with enabling "Clear View" option in windows, but it makes small fonts excessively fuzzy. Also, some monitors luck a deep black level.

Summary: I PURCHASED THIS 2693"SAMMY" TO REPLACE MY 216BW. THE HIGH-GLOSS PIANO BLACK BEZEL IS ADMIRABLE; FURTHERMORE THE CHROME ACCENT IS HANSOME AS WELL. THIS HAS HD FULL 1080p RESOLUTION, A PLETHORA OF VEIWABLE REAL ESTATE AND "MAGIC" AUTO- ADJUSTMENT FOR EVERTHING, IT EVEN INCLUDES "MAGIC" ON/OFF. THE H.A.S.(HEIGHTH ADJUSTABLE STAND) IS ALMOST MAGIC CONSIDERING IT'S WEIGHT. TECHNICALLY: THREE INPUTS ARE HDMI, DVI-D & D-Sub.
