Summary: I'd buy another of this exact monitor, if this one ever goes out. I really like the black red with the clear outside ring. Fancy while not looking too pretentious(apple). I've had this monitor for almost 5 years and have had no issues with it at all.
Pros: No ghosting, no image persistence, good backlight control, great color reproduction out of the box(for a non image expert). Lots of inputs and a built in tuner. This is not a TV, but is is a TV. :P It's a computer monitor that also happens to have a tuner built in. No tilt or height adjustment, b...
Cons: No tilt or height adjustment. Speakers aren't good, which sucks, because I was using the built in speakers from my Olivia monitor, which were great. Goes to sleep WAY too fast and then takes a while to come back on. Annoying for BIOS operations. Monitor takes longer to come back on than most BIOS...
Summary: NICE AND BIG!!!! I use it as a TV!!! I spend more time on this than my 55 inch plasma HD TV. Picture is crisp and sharp although the reviews claimed to have a green tint??? I'm really not seeing this in my everyday Gaming and TV experiences? Great Monitor!!
Summary: I use this as a gaming/tv setup in my bedroom. I sit roughly 2 feet away and gaming is very immersive. I've always liked Samsung monitors/tvs, and will continue to buy/recommend them.
Pros: Plenty of connections, great size, speakers are very good, tilt/swivel was a big plus for me. Remote is nice. Touch buttons are cool, and can be turned off/on.
Cons: When watching dark movies, there are slightly noticeable areas of white at the top center and bottom center of the screen. Nothing distracting, but noticeable, not worth an egg. There also isn't a powered usb port for devices like Google Chromecast's. Just a service usb port.
Summary: Fantastic monitor and TV. I use it as my main gaming monitor for my PC and switching it over to watch TV when I need to. Great for a spare room too. I don't use the in-build speakers as I have a decent set anyway, but they're adequate and certainly not enough to drag this down from a 5 star rating.
Pros: I've never had a problem with it. Whether it's been on my Xbox 360, my PS3, my PC or my satellite box it's been perfect. The VGA and DVI-D ports are nice for gamers like me that use this as a monitor
Cons: The one HDMI port is sort of restrictive, especially nowadays. Also, the power-off timer is annoyingly short, and the on-set buttons tend to be less-than responsive.
Summary: No problems after 1 year. I have only used this with my media center pc and the picture is perfect. I don't use the onboard speakers but they are better then my 48" HDTV. The only drawback is only 1 HDMI port but if you need more get the 3 way splitter for $15 from the link below.
Pros: This is my first HDMI monitor. The screen has good contrast brightness and easy to see for TV 10 ft away. Tuner is flexible with old & new TV support. The cable tuner works both for regular and clear-QAM never a regret with this purchase. It has been used every night since purchase as monitor or ...
Cons: 27" is a bit big for the 2' foot experience, but I adapted. Front-panel buttons are hidden and touch sensitive. But they work well once you trigger the back light. I wish it had a toggle between monitor and TV on the remote. There was no way to turn off the HDMI power-off if I turn off the Blu-Ra...
