Dead pixels; TV quality is no good; overheats
7 March 2006
Summary: I've had this monitor for just a few weeks, and exchanged it for an HP model after it has developed multiple dead pixels (about one pixel per week). The Samsung warranty policy on dead pixels for a 19-inch monitor requires you to have at least 7 dead pixels for a replacement - which means that you will be stuck if there are only 6 dead pixels or the 7th pixel appears after the warranty expires.
Summary: I've had really good experiences with Samsung LCD monitors, so when I saw this model I really didn't think twice about picking it up. Unfortunately, I've learned my lesson the hard way to always do the research first before buying anything like this. The monitor case itself is very nicely designed, but the picture resolution while watching television was unbelievably poor.
Summary: As a monitor, this unit is very nice -- especially if you would like television as a picture-in-picture (at 20% of the full screen). However, as a fullscreen television it is not at all acceptable. Samsung would have done better to disable this feature and sold the item for what it actually can do. I wanted to replace both a TV and a monitor; this unit will NOT satisfactorily do that.
Summary: Pros: Saves space, can act as a TV, ability to connect VCR etc, using line input. Cons: Mediocre display quality, discoloration in lower half of the screen, Only displays 1280x1024 at 75HZ refresh rate. Speaker sound ok, nothing spectacular. Lacks DVI input, has only Standard Analog display connector. TV picture and captioning fuzzy, strains eyes after watching for some time. Recommendation: If you are a techno-geek, you will notice this short comings and return it.
