Summary: Purchased in 2012. Easy, painless set-up. Literally plug-and-play. Plays videos really well - especially action films or those with fast movement. It could possibly be an OK TV replacement if you were inclined to use it that way. It was a bargain. We actually already had one and we bought another so that they could be used as dual monitors. Over 2 years of daily use and still no complaints. Still employed by the only gamer in the house.
Summary: As soon as i plugged it in I knew it was a good pick.I was looking at the Viewsonic but the samsung had a better picture in the store.Price was about the same.Samsung had a better response time over the viewsonic which was 5ms.Vary happy
Pros: Great color,Bright display, Fast 2ms time for games.
Great HDMI monitor + how to adjust black border around screen.

Summary: Showed up on time, and the product is awesome. I did have to adjust the edges through my video card settings as some others had. Thank you to those who posted the heads up. Instructions For Changing Border: Open up Catalyst, click on My Digital Flat panels, select Scaling Options, adjust sliding bar to desired setting. You may have to update your Catalyst Control Panel from AMDs website. I did.
Summary: When I began searching for monitors to add a little real-estate to my laptop's 13.3 inch screen, I immediately looked for a good Samsung monitor simply because they have always been at the top of the pile when it comes to displays. Finding an LED-backlit monitor of this size for such a low price by such an impressive display manufacturer was something I did not expect. The display is bright, colors vibrant and realistic, and response time is plenty fast.
Summary: I bought this monitor refurbished on Amazon to replace a 17-inch monitor which was starting to get fuzzy, just after I updated my video ram from 32 megs to 512 megs with a PCI card. Picture is very sharp, especially with the digital cable (included by my seller). To get the benefit of 2 ms refresh, anti-aliasing must be turned off of video players, else there is notable blur.
Summary: I've only had this monitor a couple of months, but I have no problems with it. It does what I want it to do. I am not a very technical person, but the colors look great to me and it doesn't seem like there was a wait time for anything I've done so far; and, if I were a very technical person, I am sure I could probably do more with it. I like Samsung, and I liked the price.
