Great monitor


All in all, one fine monitor.

Inexpensive, great display, bright, clear, just about anything you'd want in an LCD monitor. The 1920x1200 resolution helps, too

Slow to switch resolutions, stretches non-widescreen resolutions in DVI mode

KDS DRIVER ALERT - avoid Windows APM standby problem!!!


The standby feature did not disappear immediately upon installing this monitor. If it did, it would have been much easier to troubleshoot the cause. After reviewing many IT solution sites for this problem, many of which pointed towards the graphics...

Great value. I got two of these, no dead pixels. Viewing angles are more than adequate

Caused power standby feature on my Windows XP computers to become totally inoperative (Standby button greyed out). After multiple system restores, driver and OS reinstallations, I finally found that the problem was the Windows default driver for this...

It was fun for a few days


Alos the stand is horrible, hard to adjust without having the black bleed at the top

Great picture, plenty of inputs

1 stuck pixel at the bottom of the screen, bothersome, annoying but forgivable, after less than a week of using it. It died, entire screen went white. Now for some reason I am responsible for shipping it in to have it replaced, the cost difference and...

Excellent 24" monitor


I got mine open box, and it had everything in it, nothing missing, and no problems.

Bright, responsive, no bleeding

As with every LCD I've used, the power button is finicky. I've never figured out why sometimes it'll turn off quickly, other times you have to hold the button down for a while. It also lacks a DVI cable, which is an odd decision by KDS

Great Quality for price


Great monitor, huge resolution for the price. Built in speakers were a nice addition, as is the dead pixel warranty

Stand is kinda iffy, but no major problems or defects with it

Excellent monitor


I will buy another of these for my sli setup.

Monitor finish was unmarred. The stand is all metal and provides enough stability, that i couldnt knock it over if i tried. The tilt was more than enough to allow for whatever seating position i was in. Connectors all fit easily. OSD features are whats...

One dead pixel (i know, big deal)

Nice monitor


Wish they had a large one

Price, Connectivity - THREE inputs (2 d-sub, 1 dvi) , VERY nice picture, no dead pixels

On screen menus laborious to navigate, no dvi to dvi cable

misleading color specification


Why can't they just be honest?

It is big enough

This monitor uses a 6-bit/color TN panel which means it is technically impossible for it to display the 16.7 million colors that it advertises. I perform digital photo editing and color accuracy is very important to me. The monitor cannot produce more...

Great monitor!


I purchased this for a system I built for a friend, and Vista looks wonderful on it. Color quality was great, the viewing angles were borderline unbelievable, and had no dead pixels on arrival. Though I wish Samsung would release their 120hz monitors...

Sleek design, easy to install, tons of expansion options, works beautifully with PS3 and on Vista system! Resolutions and response time are both wonderful

Wasn't edible

Great Price, but certainly last year's tech.


This thing is bright. I'm switching over from a 17 inch laptop to a desktop and this thing is like staring into burning magnesium.

Price. 1920x1200. 2ms response. Works fine with Vista 64-bit

The contrast ratio is pretty low. The monitor is fairly heavy and deeper than most of this year's LCDs. Active Contast Management is kind of a joke
