This model will not last longer than about one and a half years
14 December 2013
Summary: I've had this monitor replaced three times, and each time I get it replaced, it dies in about one to one and a half years. There's a reason Samsung doesn't officially sell this model anymore. Otherwise, a pretty good monitor, but you're gonna have to get a new one soon after you buy it.
Summary: Samsung has been quite supportive in trying to resolve the issue. The unit has a 3 year warranty. Hopefully I'll hear from them soon relative to a refund.
Pros: Nice Picture, did what I wanted, TV for use in kitchen and monitor for using a small PC in the kitchen, also.
Cons: After about a year, it died. Seems to be a power problem. It will shut itself off and restart itself. After a time it won't even get a display up before restarting. I've sent it in twice to Samsung with no joy.
Summary: This does not see picture from my MAC-pro. I bought 2 of these to connect to my Radeon4870HD. I can see it thru the VGA cable, but "no signal" via DVI-HDMI>HDMI1. I tried HDMI-2, as well, but I don't think it's supposed to work thru that.
Pros: Attracted to it because of the inputs. I edit video for a living with FCP. Low price.
Cons: 1 of the HDMI would be better as a straight DVI-D. Can't get it to "see" my DVI connectors from Mac
Summary: All my LCD screen tv and pc monitor are all Samsungs, so far my oldest TV, a 42 inch LCD, has been experiencing the same bugs as my monitor. And it's driving me nuts. I thought I bought a very good value TV in Samsung, turns out they cut some corners along the way, so that their products are only...
Pros: Nice picture quality.
Cons: They are only good for about two years, after that they become very buggy. My monitor is very hard to start, flickers and goes black. You have to push the power button about 50 times to coax it to show anything.
Pros: It powers on. D-Sub PC connection appears ok.
Cons: Picture quality of HDMI PC connection is horrible.... very pixelated, blurry. Tried connection with DVI TO HDMI and also with HDMI to HDMI on two different computers. Same result. Called Samsung technical support and got an idiot reading from a script. Their only suggestion was make the picture s...
