Don't know what happened


this was my 1st LED, I have 4 LCD's and I've never had an issue with any. I love Samsung, I hope this is just one of those freak things.

when I got this monitor I was impressed by everything about it, great picture and speed

It died out of the blue in 9 months, the back light just gave out

High-gloss black base tends to pick up reflections, kind of a distraction, but not really a big deal

Loving this Monitor!


Buy it!

Gorgeous Display. I love the Instant-on of LED's. Full brightness in an instant. The colors are rich and beautiful. The three inputs are such a great bonus, as I have a computer and PS3 hooked up to it. There are a ton of great menu features

A small amount of light bleeds from the bottom edge during black scenes. Also, the sensors on the bottom for menu configuration are finnicky. Just took a little getting used to

Consumer review by:

It does tilt*


The monitor does tilt, the tilt mechanism is just unusual and initially stiff. Look at the rear of the monitor where the base attaches, you'll see a rounded rectangular piece that's flush at the bottom with space with some grooves at the top. This...

good image quality

HDMI inputs require overscan setting adjustments for many video cards, should also include DVI
