Great monitor if you get a good one


Overall it's a great monitor. I'm partial to the Samsung brand monitors. I've tried Asus and Dell and none were as nice as this Samsung monitor. Even though a lot of people like the Dell monitors, they have their own issues..

Very nice screen. 16:10 aspect ratio

Some backlight bleed ; It may be a hit or miss depending on what monitor you get. I've owned one of these for a good 2+ years and it has a tiny amount of backlight bleed on the bottom center of the screen when viewing dark images in a dark room. It is...

A very good gaming and work monitor


For an LED PLS monitor, this is a fantastic value. I use it for both work and play, and it does a marvelous job of it. The base is sturdy and the monitor will not wobble.

I bought the monitor specifically for the 16:10 aspect ratio, which is rare (16:9 becoming the "HD Standard"). No regrets for shelling out the extra money ; The "eco" function which detects ambient light and adjusts the brightness accordingly has three...

I dislike how flimsy the buttons feels. However, once you get the initial setup out of the way, you hardly ever have to touch the buttons again (I just leave my monitor on, in standby mode, when I am not using it) ; The menu itself could use a proper...

Great 24" Monitor


I've read people saying that the monitor has issues with light bleed, but for me personally, I haven't seen anything of the sort on either of the two I now own of this model. Still, worth considering before purchasing. The other thing to remember is...

I just ordered my second one of these to replace a different, older monitor. The first one I bought over a year ago and absolutely loved, so when one of my others died, naturally I went and bought a second one of these Samsungs. It's 1920x1200 16:10...

The stand is pretty easy to adjust on accident, which can be annoying if you accidentally bump the monitor

good screen but brakes too much


In two + years that I had this monitor it broke twice. I have a 10 year old Samsung monitor with the same features that never broke.

Beautiful monitor


Crisp, detailed monitor. Beautiful resolution. LED technology. Running two of these 24/7 and they always are cool to the touch. These monitors are superb, albeit a bit expensive, but still worth every penny.

HORRIBLE back light bleeding


This monitor has unacceptable back light bleeding. I sent my monitor in to repair the issue, and the one I received back had it twice as bad. I would look elsewhere.

Did not meet expectations, Poor quality
