Nice Monitor with a Shaky Stand
21 April 2014
Summary: I have to agree with others that the monitor is not rigidly mounted into the stand (there is some play in the monitor stand) but the picture quality is very good so far. The covers to hide the connection and power cables are a nice touch as well. Overall this met my expectations.
as of may 2012, this product seems to be a great value for your money.

Summary: i liked it because its a great value, the best looking monitor i could find, manufacturer refurbished for the price of 149.99 including free shipping. so i think its the best value. however i dont know of any better displays available for this price range. and i am not completely impressed with the build quality, however it is a stylish design.
Summary: This is an awesome monitor especially for the price. The look and feel are great and the display is vivid. The only thing I didn't realize before I bought it is that it does not have any speakers.
Summary: Some very confusing specs give the impression you are getting less than you actually are when you buy this unit. Advertised as either LCD or LED, 1 year or 3 year warranty, and salespersons don't seem to know much more than the ads. Turns out to be LED, and Samsung extends warranty to 3 years when registered online. That's 3 times the warranty of most TVs and monitors!
Summary: I bought this a few months ago to replace a 21 inch Samsung monitor I had. My previous one had a glossy screen that made colors seem so much richer and brighter. I was worried going back to the anti-glare screen and what it would mean for black levels and colors. I was pleasantly surprised how rich the monitor looks. The color and black levels are great. I love the base with the clear plexi covered opening.
Summary: Overall, a very good monitor. I prefer old fashioned buttons to flush heat sensors for controls. Also, when eco puts the monitor to sleep it is slow to wake up sometimes. Otherwise, a good overall monitor.
Pros: Excellent picture quality, elegant design.
Cons: Some blurring during action scenes when viewing videos. This is more apparent when the camera pans across a scene than when a character or object moves.
Not as good with vga, but quality monitor when discounted

Summary: Pretty good screen. Not as clear with the vga, I have a dvi monitor next to it (split screen=awesome), there is a clear difference between the two but with hdmi capabilities, I'm sure I will switch to that soon. Got it refurbished (working great so far) for cheap.
Summary: I just purchased and installed this monitor. My initial thoughts are as follows: pros: - clear image - ECO friendly - size is great - adjusts to the ambient light in a room automatically - base is stable for the monitor size (base is clear with a dark border around it) - good cable control on the back of the monitor - great refresh rate by comparison to other monitors in price range - reasonable price cons: - front panel controls are awful - no tactile feedback that you...
