Summary: Wow! I don't know about the new model but this monitor/TV is fantastic! Crystal clear resolution as a computer monitor and extremely impressive television picture. I did have to adjust the TV color a bit from the default because it was too much red for me but after that, it's a bang up TV too. I can't think of anything I would change about it.
Summary: This is the ratio that makes sense. 16/9 doesn't buy much working height for screen width but 16/10 is much better. Increased the working height almost 1 1/4 inches compared to the same size 16/9 I tried and returned. This can put two standard pages on the screen at about full size. Its viewing angle to the side was a surprise and nice for other eyes to see what is going on. Wouldn't be very good for privacy but this is not a lap top. No negatives yet. 6 months.
Summary: I kept putting off buying a TV and finally decided to try one without spending a lot of money. My son told me what to look for in the specs and highly recommended Samsung. So, I bought this model and was surprised at how clear the picture is. The only improvement would be better sound/speakers.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace my old one that I had dropped and broke. As a result, I went from 1152 on the old one to 1080 on this one, and I expected to see the difference in the resolution. I don't know why I had such a wrong assumption, especially given this one's generous 24" screen. In short, this is an incredibly good monitor with perfectly sharp, full HD resolution and a perfect size for sitting only a few feet from a viewer on the desk.
