Pros: Easy to program. Picture is clear for both TV and PC use. The auto program mode works great for both cable & broadcast. Power consumption is low and it shuts itself off automatically if your PC goes into hibernation.
Cons: No picture in a picture. Sound is a bit weak.
Summary: I bought this to use as a computer monitor and even after going an spending $50 on cables to convert it, it failed to deliver. I had to use this as my TV for the bedroom, which is way smaller then my old one, and moved the 32' TV from the bedroom to my office. This TV did not have a VGA connection and that was very inconvenient. Good picture but lacked in the area of delivering to be a universal piece of technology.
You get what you pay for and this one is worth it.

Summary: Great HD monitor (and TV) - right size for typical office applications. You pay almost as much for this 27" as a cheap 32" but the 32's were too big, 24's too small and you get what you pay for. Great Samsung quality, color, contrast, response time, and user interface features. The only complaint is that the OEM stand does NOT tilt, so I married the monitor with a Sanus articulating arm for the perfect install - really frees up desk space - looks killer - nice and clean.
