Summary: I purchased this monitor basically because it fit perfectly in a cabinet I already had in my bedroom. It fit a 24" wide opening perfectly. I connected the HDMI cable from my cable box and external speakers from the monitor. Clear picture. Kind of disappointed that I needed external speakers.
Summary: I have owned the Samsung T260HD for three months and can say that the monitor is great for casual PC use, Gaming, and HDTV or BluRay DVD viewing. There are separate on screen menu settings for TV and DVI (PC) usage.
Summary: This is a very nice monitor both in quality and the overall design. There are just two shortages: (1) the monitor is a little too bright that one need to turn the brightness control all the way down to minimum, and (2) the 5-button setting at the side of the monitor is a little hard to use.
Summary: First off, this is a TN panel and probably isn't ideal or photo or video editing. That's fine, all that I use it for is playing games. It is perfect for that application. I purchased it on a great holiday sale for less than $400, and for that price, I think it is an excellent value.
