Summary: I've had this monitor for a couple of months now and wanted to share my thoughts. Overall, I like it. It's a beautiful addition to my desk, with the "touch of color" frame and piano-gloss-black base. Very pretty. I love having a high resolution widescreen 1080p-sized screen. The colors are vibrant, and the brightness and contrast are great. I LOVE the amount of inputs this has. The fact that it has a built in HDTV tuner is pretty cool, too.
Could have been a lot better, but for the price. . . .

Summary: First the price - its an extraordinary value, buying the Refurb at $418, and it came pretty much unblemished, per the description. Let me say I have owned a Samsung 240T (from Amazon, too), 24" 1920X1200 for nearly four years, and it works fine. But, with no HDCP feature on the DVI I wanted an upgrade. Previously, watching Blu-Ray in VGA mode hasn't been satisfying. Secondly I found the Samsung could capture and tune all of the COX off-air HDTV channels.
Pros: Everything I read and heard said this is a great monitor and I was not disappointed with the final result. Games play great and you can view two documents, side by side. I love it.
Cons: Monitor 1: Four dead pixels in one cube. Monitor 2: A smattering of dead pixels (5 - 10) scattered across the screen. Monitor 3: A gray cloud of pixels (100s?) on the upper left quadrant of screen. Monitor 4: Works great.
Summary: I have a Samsung LN52A750 LCD television which is an awesome set for use either as an HDTV or as a computer monitor. I really like the style it has with the TOC (touch of color) and the crystalline bezel design. When the T260HD was announced it seemed like a great idea to upgrade my 22" monitor with this 26" and gain HDTV functions while matching the style of the larger set. What a disappointment!
Summary: As a monitor text is not as sharp as other LCD panels i have used. It looks grey and soft. As a TV, the picture is good, but if autosize is left on the picture distorts to the 16/10 aspect ratio. The sound from this TV is unlistenable; like listening to music from a mobile phone. This is a direct result of flat panels not having space for conventional speakers, but other sets seem to do better.
