Sexy monitor

Shane J., Newegg
7 June 2012
  • Summary: When I first set this up as my PC monitor I was nervous, it looked bad, even thru the HDMI. However after tweaking / googling I found the right answer and it is beautiful. Would buy another.
  • Pros: Great HDTV, Great PC Monitor, lots of connection options
  • Cons: none yet, setup a little cumbersome to dial it in

This monitor is awesome,

  • Summary: There is nothing wrong with this monitor at all, I think the user ratings and cnet ratings are off a bit. I thought the menu system was incredibly extensive, it had lots of picture tweaks, almost as much as my Samsung UN55C8000 TV.
  • Pros: -The main thing that matters, Picture quality, is great., -It's big, -It's relatively cheap ( I got mine for $260 one day when I saw it on shopper.cnet.com/deals)
  • Cons: -I Had to do some serious picture tweaking. When I say serious, I mean about 30 minutes of googling and playing with settings., -Sound quality is poor (who expected it not to be poor)

Go Samsung

Justin A., Newegg
18 April 2012
  • Summary: I have owned a Lot of Monitors, and this one is better then the LG 22 inch I had that Craped out after a year of haveing it, the Colors are Awesome compaired to the 22 inch Westinghouse I still have. Better then the Viewsonic as well.
  • Pros: Everyone tells me this is a TV, and Not a Monitor... but most TVs I see have Input Lag, this Does not, So It is a TV seccond, and Monitor First... It is a Jack of all trades and a MASTER OF ALL... for the most part
  • Cons: The stand is a Little Weak and Not very sturdy. Also the PIP is not Good... Hey Samsung... Redo this to be an LED Backlite and then I Will buy 2

Very Happy

Christopher F., Newegg
17 April 2012
  • Summary: This should be a five star monitor, if only the stand wasn't such garbage. The sound is good, as good as you could hope for in a built in setup. The inputs are great and the menus are easy to use and the touch is responsive. I wanted to give it 5 but the STAND.......
  • Pros: Excellent variety of inputs, great colors, no light bleed, easy user interface.
  • Cons: My only complaint is the stand, it is cheap and quite weak. I have had this for a few weeks now and it is already starting to lean forward. I am just waiting for the stem of the stand to snap. I almost have to figure out a VESA solution or risk damage when neck eventually snaps and the monitor fa...

TV yes, monitor maybe

Anonymous, Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this as an over-the-air TV with the option of connecting a computer, later. With the exception of low sound and strange brightness/color settings, it works fine. It is currently used primarily as a TV, and I have 4 desktops tied to it through a KVM switch (VGA port) @ 1600x1200.
  • Pros: -Price -Size -TV picture quality- once I spent time tweaking it
  • Cons: -Low TV volume -Quite the pain to get VGA input set to reasonable 16:9 (1600x1200), made a nice 22" 4:3 display before that -I keep adjusting it, but I still can't get "perfect" brightness/color settings

Folllow-Up

Donald P., Newegg
2 March 2012
  • Summary: This is an OK Monitor,but in my opinion meteocre.If i had it to do again i would purchase a monitor specifically made for computer work and games.As I said in prior review there's to many eggs in this basket.And none of them really work that well.
  • Pros: I'm updating an earlier review where i pretty much dogged this Monitor.To which i owe Samsung an apology..Also after repair PS3 with HDMI looks much better.Whatever part or parts were replaced fixed more than 1 problem.Samsung tech.at Far East repairs was efficient and professional and my hats of...
  • Cons: After repairs the Monitor works as it should.My problem was with the DVI port which went bad.The monitor would go to a blank screen in games.the sound and activities we're in the background and i had to reset my computer without proper shutdown procedures.Samsung tech. called and said they couldn...

I own 2 of these, and have for over a year

Derek P., Newegg
29 February 2012
  • Summary: Great monitor. Was saddened by the VESA compatibility. I should have looked more into it. Oh well.
  • Pros: The monitors are super bright, super crisp, great for gaming. The color is great for the price your paying for them. they're very big and just all around nice monitors
  • Cons: Not VESA compatible. I bought dual wall mount brackets for these 2 beautiful beasts when I suddenly realized I can't mount them. They don't have a monitor VESA bracket in the back.

How to fix the blurry display

Bryan B., Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Lots of people complain about blurry or fuzzy picture quality, especially with HDMI. Here is how you fix it: Go to "Menu" and then "Setup&Reset" and scroll to "PC / AV" mode, change to "PC". That will solve the sizing problem (pic too big for display) and the fuzziness
  • Pros: Large, bright, fast
  • Cons: Capacitive buttons not very responsive, takes a while to figure out the settings, menus

Disappointing color-otherwise great.

Eli M., Newegg
15 February 2012
  • Pros: Attractive design, suprisingly good internal speakers (very comparable in volume and frequency range as my Bose computer speakers.) HDMI connected quickly and easily to Roku, no problems connecting laptop with VGA monitor cable.
  • Cons: When connected to my laptop, there is a dramatic shift in color, shadow and highlight detail when compared to the screen on the laptop. After exploring various display settings (on the TV) I was able to get it pretty close, but it wasn't easy. I have worked with many HDTV's and computer monitors ...
