Summary: Installation is easy enough and the picture looks fine when your eye level is above or even with the monitor...but the picture appears significantly darker when you're looking up at it even slightly. I intended to use this in a bedroom to replace an old TV on a bureau just a foot or two above bed-level, but it's just too dark, even when jerry-rigged to tilt downwards. It's a shame the viewing angle is so limited.
Summary: I recently purchased a Samsung HDTV and after a slight problem which was easily resolved by Samsung support, decided to go for this puppy. I tried other options to turn my existing SONY monitor into a tv (pinnacle pctv without any success) but thought this option would be great. With a flip of a button, I would be able to switch between PC and high definition TV. Now I'm living.... I couldn't wait to open the box and set everything up.
Summary: reading the product information i saw two resolutions given, 1920x1200 and 1680x1050. i judged that, because it was listed twice, 1920x1200 was in fact the true res. no such luck. -2 stars because of the product description failure, and having to return it. -1 star because its still a nice monitor, and that power button is very tricky in the dark. so if they ever fix the description, i'll edit this to 4stars... but for what i expected i'm not at all pleased with it.
Summary: OK to use it as a monitor or to catch cable TV programs. Sound and picture qualities are OK. But it is terrible to use it to catch of the air TV program. There is no instruction and cannot add channel after you scan the channel. Even you punch in the channel, it returns back to previous channel quickly without giving you time to adjust the antenna to catch the signal.
Excerpt: En principio me pareció la mejor opción en su momento. Lo compré en enero de 2009 por 216 €. No había otro modelo semejante de otras marcas más reconocidas como Sony o Toshiba que pudieran igualarlo en relación prestaciones/precio. De primeras funcionó muy bien. Muy intuitivo el menú,facil manejo, múltiples conexiones (2-HDMI,DVID.... Lo utilizo como monitor y TV. Pero de un dia para otro, la TDT empezó a hacer cosas raras.
