Summary: This arrived promptly enough however, had the screws missing from the base (I cannibalized my old monitor). If that weren't enough, the little plastic button cap for the "on" and "off" button was missing. I knew it was used but really?
Summary: I own this monitor, and have since 04 or 05. It still works flawlessly. It looks almost as good as newer models, and has outlasted 3 computers. If you are in need of a cheap monitor, 50 dollars used is a great deal.
Summary: This thing is amazing. I have previously been the owner of 15, 17, and 21 inch Sony CRT's, and going to this is certainly a treat. It's very close to what a CRT puts out in my opinion. However, as LCD's tend to be, it has its rescrictions. Resolution is native at 1280x1024.

Summary: I'll echo the other comment. Educate yourself about the benefits and drawbacks of an LCD before opening trap. LCDs have one major limitation, and that is the image quality at anything other than native resolution. More on this in a sec. This is my second Samsung LCD.
Summary: All you folks need to take a step back.. I am using 1024/768 @ 72hz and have run at 60/70/72/75 without any problems...and no changes Best to set you Display Adapter at Optimal.. but you can force just about any of the listed ones... First you need the latest drivers from the Samsung web-site..
Summary: The monitor is ultra bright - thats good. The monitor I received had odd color reproduction. Photos of grass were WAY too green. Blue jeans were TOO BRIGHT blue - no matter how much I fiddled with it I could not get accurate color reproduction.
Summary: I shopped around and almost went with another, a small 14' model, I'm glad I didn't. I only have previous CRTs to compare this with, but from this newbie, I can tell you the picture is outstanding. I do school/work things, some development I highly recommend. Cnet gives it a good review also.
Summary: After battling with a CRT for years, I am thrilled to finally have an LCD monitor. Installing the monitor was very easy. The monitor auto-adjustments make the images fit perfectly onto the screen, and the picture is great under default settings.
