The Cadillac of 17" CRTs


This is my fourth Samsung CRT and all of them are superb. Beautifully designed, reliable, long-lasting. With the popularity of LCDs Samsung is the last high-quality CRT vendor in the business. Buy one before they're all gone


Consumer review by:

Poor pixel structure


The pixel layout on this monitor is bad, it hurts the eyes even at 85 Hertz.

Good Looks, but bad monitor inside!


Well, I don't want to talk to much but this monitor just sucks: the BAD: 1. Blurry (all setting revised and tweaked) 2. went to local dealer and tested 6 monitors of the same model and MB model, all sucks, so it's not matter of defected unit or...

Well...It's not bad, but not so good.
