Nice BIG monster


I'm very happy to have this,

I have this big monster and i love it ; It supports to very high resolution wich 1920x1200 so better for PC gaming and watching HD blue ray movies ; It shipped with both DVI and VGA cable so i didn't buy any adapter to connect the monitor to my VGA

noting to find

Nice picture but lines appeared, bad customer service


Nice monitor if you get one that works. If it doesn't good luck getting through to Samsung, they have no direct phone line to call and they don't seem to respond to emails.

Nice big monitor with plenty of real estate for pallets in page layout programs. Nice color and contrast

Odd placement of function buttons make navigating the menu a bit tricky. After only 2 months bright magenta, yellow & cyan lines appeared on the right side and more show up every few days. Our IT dept has tried to contact Samsung Support with no luck

Great Monitor


This monitor plus a 21" Sony with a 8800GT card run EVERYTHING flawlessly. I can watch TV on one and surf the web on the other, or watch youtube videos as well. Playing games at the max resolution with no lag.

Resolution, color detail, gaming response, and overall general usage is top notch. This monitor has handled everything I have thrown at it and then some. I watch cable TV, dvd's, and power surf the web. Zero issues great buy wish I had 2 of them. I...

The install of the base was pretty scary. You have to push really firm to get it seated. You cannot play some games that require resolution change (Civilization)

This was a great monitor. No dead pixels or any other flaws other then the ones I stated in the cons. 1920x1200 was a great resolution for gaming until the blurry center starting showing more and more. Now it's just annoying because it's so...

Advertised as 20000:1 Dynamic Contrast when it's actually 50000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio ; Very Vivid. Bright

Only 3 months of ownership and it has lost it's sharpness right down the entire middle of the screen. I can clearly see fonts, text, and any graphics blurred in them, up and down the middle of the screen. Move it to the edges and things become crisper...

Beware the hum


The monitor is OK. There is no height adjustment in the stand, but on my desk this is not a problem. What was a major disappointment for me is the humming noise it makes when you lower the brightness. Initially I thought it was a defect in this...

1900x1200 resolution ; looks nice

Limited stand ; Humming noise when brightness less than 100

Best 24 for the Price


Forget the lesser-than brands. It pays to invest in a little quality up front. Buy this - you will not regret it.

Elegant finish - radiates quality. Brilliant picture. Flexible color. brightness, and contrast adjustments. Legendary Samsung reputation
