Summary: While shopping around for a monitor, I had a rather specific need: a monitor that would be able to support both 1600x1200 resolution (4:3) and typical wide-screen without scaling image distortion (in other words, true-scaling or 1:1 for both cases). My research took me to the Samsung T260HD.
Summary: When I first picked up the box containing my new T260HD, it was big and heavier than I expected. I hauled it into my room and started unpacking right away. The first thing I pulled out were the many accessories, including: D-sub/VGA, DVI and power cables, remote, cleaning cloth, and driver/manual...
Summary: I bought this monitor a year ago to help with my research. As a grad student, at any one time I can have open a paper I'm writing, an important journal or article, maybe a program I've written and perhaps a web browser.
Summary: I bought this mainly for its 1200 vertical resolution, I just want to buy one before they were all replaced by the 1080 ones. I mainly use this for document viewing and programming purpose, with 1200 vertical resolution it's easier to view two pages of PDF documents at a time.
Summary: There are plenty of reviews praising this monitor, so I will not take up more space by adding another. However, there are a number of reviewers that leave negative feedback for this item, and I believe that some of them are slightly mistaken.
Summary: So I don't have much to add to what other reviewers said. I am a student who wanted a bigger monitor (one I could sit a bit away from the desk) that would work well for work and videos at a decent price. I just got the monitor a few days ago and I will say I am satisfied.
Summary: I purchased this T260HD mainly to be used as a computer monitor. The fact that it includes a TV tuner, adds to its value in my opinion. Its also a very attractive looking monitor. If your just looking to buy a TV, you might as well just buy a dedicated TV though.
Summary: My primary need was a computer monitor, but I also wanted a screen that I could input an HDMI cable from my PS3 for hi-def gaming while sitting at my computer desk. I found that I had to go with a TV (rather than a computer monitor) to get both types of inputs.
Sharp, bright computer monitor with lots of inputs

Summary: The monitor arrived today. It was exceptionally easy to assemble - the stand was in two parts, and attached to the bottom of the monitor - took maybe two minutes. The written documentation is skimpy - there is just enough instructions to make the connections.
Summary: I have both, the only pc monitor and now this one as a pc and tv and have them both together, side by side working with the same Velocity Micro computer and I am glad I got both the same Samsung brand and one just pc and the other plus tv. They are both superb and have the option of tv also.
