Monitor Blocks Backlight Adjustment For Mac Over DVI
Longtime Samsung Customer, Amazon

Summary: I have long appreciated the picture quality of Samsung TVs and monitors for their price levels. That said, I will stick to Samsung TVs and not monitors in the future. This "monitor" disables the Eco and backlight level settings when using a Mac over DVI (via cable conversion to HDMI). This leaves the monitor WAY too bright for comfortable use.
Summary: Purchased a Samsung FX2490HD from my local Fry's store after reading Amazon reviews. It sounded like a perfect combination of monitor, HDTV and media player. On the outside, it's a very nice looking unit; well-built with a sturdy stand and remote control. The problem starts when you turn it on. Colors were way off and I could not get skin tones to come close to natural.
