Excerpt: I have been using Samsung SyncMaster T190 LCD Monitor for a few months and I am satisfied with its quality and design. It is the best LCD monitor I have ever had and I love its special design. I received this monitor as a present and at the time I was using another LCD that was almost new. At the beginning I wasn’t very excited with Samsung SyncMaster because it was looking different than the other LCD monitors I knew.
Summary: The monitor continuously courses through each brightness setting, changing the lighting of the screen constantly. also, it has no speakers nor an inpout for an aux cord. it is the very best of a bad situation.
Summary: I've had this model monitor for about a year when I decided I liked it so well that I would buy a second. Set up with my Asus motherboard is as easy as PnP gets. The resolution is quite nice and the color balance between the two is identical. Great with videos, photo editing and of course, text. They are smaller than a lot of available monitors, but perfect for my limited space. Price is slightly higher than lower end models, but I think worth it.
Summary: One of the reasons that I bought this monitor was because of the $[...] rebate offer. Twelve weeks and numerous phone calls later, still no rebate check. Customer service in India keeps apologizing and keeps saying next week. What is a person to do? As for the monitor. Great color. I have a major issue with the touch sensitive on/off button.If you are in a slightly dark enviroment it is impossible to see. I do not see any more Samsung products in my future.
Summary: I have had this monitor for several months now and it has been working great. There have been complaints about it not tilting, but that is not a feature that I needed because it sits a good angle coming out of the box. The picture and color are great. Samsung has always made great LCD monitors and TVs and this one is one of the great products they make. I would definitely recommend this monitor or any other Samsung products like it.
Summary: ORIGINAL: Got this baby from TechForLess. Refurbished. Initial monitor ehibited some pixel abberation mid-screen, so I notified TechForless and they dispatched a replacement to me along with return-shipping for the first one. The replacement worked great, but I needed driver software which Samsung didn't include (boo...). Again, TechForLess went the extra mile and both e-mailed AND called me to resolve the driver issue.
Summary: This Samsung monitor not only outperforms every other monitor in its class, it looks stunning. I bought it for my son who is a game fanatic. It was he that pointed out the differences in shading and lack of motion blur. I own two other Samsung TVs and the picture on them is unsurpassed. I am not a guy that goes for micro investigation of the tech aspects. I go for what I can see, the price I pay, and the lasting quality of the equipment.
Okay monitor but horrible backlight leakage prevents blacks from being "true"

Summary: Okay, I bought this monitor under the impression that it would have a decent contrast ratio and decent blacks. The monitor is very aesthetically pleasing, except for the wobbly stand. Upon turning the monitor on, I was greeted with very vibrant colors, but as soon as I started viewing a dark scene in a game, on the internet, or in a movie... I noticed horrible back light leakage on the bottom and top of the screen. It practically made the blacks gray.
