Summary: I got this monitor because it can pivot/tilt and was fairly cheap. The Samsung Magic Angle feature doesn't work well for the monitor in vertical mode, and I haven't been able to make a 'custom' setting.
Summary: Great basic monitor, not a tank but not cheap feeling either. I like the matt picture frame bezel and the stand is good.
Pros: * Great color, basic settings for average user. * VGA & DVI cables included. * Displayport included, which wasn't listed on the Specs. * Great OSD menus, buttons are nice. * Thin-ish bezel * Rotatable 90 degrees.
Pros: Wonderful monitor. I upgraded from an old HP. I decided to give Samsung a try and have no regrets. The price is very good for a monitor that is fully adjustable. Screen quality is great. It's a matte screen so no reflections or anything. Colors are excellent. Plastic build quality seems great. Ea...
Cons: Not a con-- more like me not reading instructions... When unpacking the monitor, screw the base on first, set it down on a table or the floor, then pull the metal pin out. Otherwise it'll just pop out potentially damaging the stand.
Summary: I was very surprised to open up the box and find a DVI cable inside. I was honestly expecting it to be like every other monitor I've ever purchased and come only with a 15-pin VGA cable. Good job, more manufacturers need to include those, since they're practically standard now.
Pros: Whenever I put together a new build or am upgrading what I have, I find myself gravitating towards Samsung panels. The overall build quality is always top-notch, even on the lower-end consumer-grade panels, and I have yet to have a dead or stuck pixel on a Samsung. This particular panel has every...
Cons: This is a more professional-grade monitor, so you do pay for what you get. A little bit more pricey than your run-of-the-mill consumer-grade panel.
Summary: Personally, I think these are the best monitors on the market. To me, one of the biggest advantages is the ability to pivot the screen so you can display it either horizontally or vertically. I use a multiple monitor setup and I like some of my screens to be vertical, so these work perfectly for me.
