Great Quality

 

I chose this monitor simply because I was upgrading from a 14" and anything larger would have been uncomfortable. I also wanted a lower max resolution to run video games at max graphic settings. Further, I don't have access to a 1080p video library....

Bright, clear. Plenty of settings. Quality you would expect from a Samsung display

For $10 more you can upgrade to a 21.5" at 1080p. As mentioned already, DVI cable is not included in the box

The documentation in the box made it sound like a DVI cable was included but it wasn't - if you want to use DVI you will have to obtain a cable. This isn't a gripe against the monitor itself, but it would've been nice to include a cable

Samsung SyncMaster S20A300B 20" LED Backlit LCD Monitor

 

Refurbished monitor didn't come with the software disk; I called Samsung and was told I had to purchase the disc, but then with a bit of searching found that I could download the software from the Samsung website. The monitor works quite well though. I...
