Pros: Great viewing angle, nice and big. Nice 3-year warranty.
Cons: You'll need that warranty. The integrated power supply emits buzzing and whistles if any dimmers are in use, even when they're on different circuits. I've had two failures in 35 months. This second failure probably can't be fixed. It's still under w
Cons: I am on my 3rd monitor. First one lasted about 2 years and the replacement died a week before my warranty was up. So far, the 3rd one is still working. If this one dies, I'm out $1,200. Stay far away from this monitor ... Used or new!
Summary: the size and resolution are better than what is currently offered as of 01/11/11 the LCD monitor is brighter than the LED monitors currently offered. the savings to get an old monitor is staggering the risk is obvious but i got very lucky and found two great ones from this seller... this is when Ebay actually works well.. I saved around $3000 from my new video business budget and now can afford a better new video camera.
Cons: After having this monitor for 2 years it broke. The monitor just quit working. If you have one I hope it keeps working for you, but after reading reviews with a similar situation, I doubt it. Worse waste of $1200 ever spent. Thanks Samsung!
