Summary: I ordered this product as new product on Amazon.com, it stopped working 6 months later, I returned it to Samsung repair, turns out that there was no warrantee (after they originally said that it was). Tech for Less and Amazon wanted nothing to do with it. Basically I had to write off the monitor and take the hit, neither Amazon, Tech for Less, or Samsung, would take responsibility for it. I will have to buy a replacement.
Summary: I have had this monitor for the last 18 months or so and it's just broken down. I play a lot of games and its performance was so-so - I'm no tech head, but 12ms response time isn't that great any more - and it's almost impossible to adjust. In short, it was OK while it lasted, but now it's broken...
Summary: If, like me, you enjoy playing a variety of computer games, don't get this monitor. With a large number of games, the monitor "complains" about the resolution. The monitor is plainly able to display a variety of resolutions just fine, but it plasters a banner in the middle of the the screen that says "Not Optimal Mode. Use 1280x1024 @60Hz". After two minutes, the screen goes blank. If you turn the monitor off, then on, you get another two minutes.
Summary: If you're considering a flat-screen monitor - it's WORTH IT. This thing is excellent - it's clear, crisp, and vibrant. The screen doesn't fade to black from the side, you can still see the picture looking strait on. It doesn't blink like normal monitors - in fact when I take a photograph of the screen there are no flashing lines, it's a solid picture. Less eye strain - I love it!
Summary: I've had my Samsung Syncmaster spraypainted silver, so that cost me another $10. :) The glare from this screen is really noticably lower than CRT monitors, with crisp colour. I'm really no techie, but I can say that compared to all the CRT monitors I've used before, it seems like this LCD monitors just triumphs them in terms of EVERYTHING. It's thinner for that Everything package too. Based on my experience, I would say Yes, get it.
