Dead pixel, cheap stand

Summary: Very crisp image, and sleek design. But even those very important attributes couldn't redeem this monitor for me. Out of the box it had a couple of dead pixels. It took me a while to notice them, but as always, once they were found I couldn't stop staring at them. Also, the stand is a total piece of trash. The fixture inside of the monitor that fixes to the stand is incredibly tough to work with.
Summary: I bought this monitor 2 years ago as an external for my Macbook Pro. It is ok for it's price, not great color or resolution, the base is wobbly, but it's serviceable. It is buggy though. From the beginning it had a bug where when my laptop awoke from sleep I wold get a screen full of static from the Samsung. Turning off and back on the monitor would fix that. Now I am noticing that in Dashboard, widgets will not display on the samsung. They are just a washed out white.
Summary: I think 1 1/2 years is too short for the lifetime for monitors that cost $190 or $200 don't recall the exact price. I thought this from Fry's but the brand didn't stood up to the recommendations and reviews I read. May be I was unlucky. But not happy with this purchase. Monitor suddenly stopped working and displays the picture only for a second and the screen goes dark. Now on a quest to find the next monitor.
A cheap 24" would be a WORLD better than this one. Samsung slipped

Summary: I thought that considering the cost this was going to be a good buy, but it's not. The quality isn't what I expected from a samsung, and 22" just isnt good enough. I'm accustomed to dual 28" LCDs, so the size might be ok to someone else. All my monitors are 16:9, but this one seems like a wide 19". Factory settings are way to bright, and took awhile to adjust. The refernce to LED is just the switches, it's not a LED monitor.
Summary: When I first purchased this monitor I was in awe. The colors were bright and crisp and it had a sleek design that really blew me away. Unfortunately, about a month later the screen began to flicker and would slowly get darker and darker until you couldn't see anything anymore. It began to chose when it wanted to work and no, it wasn't a video card or connection problem because I used both inputs one for PC and one for my 360.
Summary: The monitor seemed pretty sweet when I got it, but there was a crack in the plastic casing. I sent it back to Amazon...hopefully I'll get a refund. Other than that, it had nice features, although it was not HD like I originally thought when I ordered it. It comes with a remote too, but you might need a TV tuner to use it.
Summary: Only had it 3 weeks when it quit. I had to do a lot of upgrading of my video card to get it to look OK, and then wasn't really impressed with the picture. I replaced it with a LG that worked right out of the box and was $10 less.
