Decent when it worked

Strengths: Nice looking screen, good enough refresh rate for FPSs

Weakness: It broke after less than a year

It's great monitor when it works. Nice fast refresh rate, I never had probems with it playing fast paced FPS games. Videos were crisp and contrast was fine. However after a week I noticed when the monitor would wake up from sleep mode some of the pixels that should have been black were replaced with bright blue pixels. More and more blue pixels would replace the black ones till the monitor would...

Serious real estate, serious lumens!

Strengths: HUGE, bright, beautiful LCD. No ghosting even during a very extended gaming session. 1920 x 1200 resolution really shows off this masterpiece's strength.

Weakness: Strenghts Continued: I can see no major issues with viewing angle; but I'm not using it for anything other than general and gaming. NO DEAD PIXELS ! WOOT ! Samsung rocks.

Had to turn the brightness down to 40% because it was giving me a full frontal sunburn. I think my contacts were melted to my eyes before I realized what happened. was awesome with delivery and price. $50 rebate from Samsung sealed the deal; now to see if I can actually get the rebate back from Samsung.

Great for the price

Strengths: Clean, adjustable, includes DVI and VGA cables and cleaning cloth, 24 inch, wall mountable

Weakness: Viewing angles are awful, but it doesn't matter because I sit in front of my monitor

Overall, a great purchase if your on a budget. I only hope it continues to impress... Samsung is a name you can trust, and evidently this is no exception. I hooked it up to my iMac (which the screen has gotten worse over time) and it makes it look like garbage. I use my 20-inch iMac for windows I won't be looking at and I use this screen for games, movies, and websites. 5MS response time is...

Excellent Picture – No Regrets

Strengths: Superb contrast and brightness, precise color, clean look, excellent response rate, easy to adjust (tilt and height)

Weakness: No easy way to turn monitor vertical or mount on a wall. (I do not use this feature)

The primary use for my monitor is home. It has been a great asset for working at home on spreadsheets. The characters are sharp and contrast/brightness settings make it quick to change between preprogrammed and customs settings. Over the 3 months have been using the monitor I have been very pleased. I also do some gaming playing World of Warcraft BC. It is always a disappointment when I have to...

Very nice

Strengths: nice construction good resolution good speed

Weakness: not great on vertical viewing angle no USB or audio ports

Nice "basic" 24" monitor. Picture is excellent with very good response time and wide horizontal viewing angle. Vertical viewing angle not as great -- colors get washed out more than 60 or 90 degrees out.
