Monitor OSD Menu and Volume Glitch

Darith Y., Newegg
17 May 2012
  • Summary: Great monitor especially with HDMI input, remote, and a TV support.
  • Pros: -Great external design -Great picture and decent viewing angles -Great colors and pixel size -1920x1200 resolution at 60hz
  • Cons: -The Volume on-screen display (OSD) stays on screen and never goes away. -The volume display is stuck a 100, and it does not go away. -When I select the Menu OSD, it cycles through options endlessly and I am locked out of any menu options. -The monitor software is very glitchy and non-functional.

Be careful for buzzing noise !

Gunhee K., Newegg
10 January 2010
  • Pros: All the others are pretty good except...
  • Cons: You should be warned that this monitor generates a quite annoying buzzing noise. Compared to iMac, it is much louder especially when you set higher brightness. I know many of other reviews have already pointed out that noise, too.

Big & fast, but some caveats!

Anonymous, Newegg
4 January 2010
  • Summary: Samsung offered a refurbished replacement. Given ownership time when problem found (whine/buzz), I thought it unfair to provide a refurbished monitor; I bought a "new" monitor. They don't even know when a "new" one will be available.
  • Pros: * Big! The 1920x1200 is huge. * Refresh rate is excellent. * Inexpensive.
  • Cons: * Took at least an hour to get 'good enough' color. Further efforts at calibration unfruitful. * Color consistency is lacking; top 1/3 colors look different than bottom 1/3 colors (gamma/contrast/brightness differences). * Viewing angle (vertical) poor (contributor to the above point). (Horizonta...

Extremely Disappointing

James K., Newegg
25 December 2009
  • Summary: 24" is the perfect size for 1920x1200... I debated for the longest time between 24" and 25.5", but the 25.5" would have resulted in icons and text too large. Newegg's delivery time for this was incredible; I ordered it 12/22 at 7:30 at night, and it was here by 1:00 Christmas eve.
  • Pros: 1920x1200 is the perfect resolution for development Easy to put together, and the stand seems more stable than some posts claimed. Doesn't take as much room on the desk as I expected
  • Cons: The monitor is 50% brighter at the bottom than it is at the top. I read this in some of the reviews and thought 'how bad can it be'. It is very noticeable, and out of the box the contrast was set to nearly 100% to keep the top from being too dark... making the bottom so glowing bright the text in...

Great except for one major problem.

LJC, Amazon
10 December 2008
  • Summary: The major problem is a buzzing sound when I turn down the brightness. This is totally unacceptable when using this as a monitor, since being so close to the screen, the buzzing is clearly heard and very annoying.

Unsinnige Kombination kleiner Screen mit extrem breitem Ramen

Karlsruher, Amazon
3 August 2012
  • Summary: Wegen des extrem breiten Rahmens, der zudem farblich gar nicht ins Office passt, ist dieser Monitir sehr unzeitgemäß und gar nicht zu empfehlen. Samsung hat viel bessere Monitore und es gibt fast keine schlechteren
