Inconsistancy

 

If you notice a washed out picture or blurry text adjust settings and calibrate ClearType, if the settings do not hold it is a defective panel, not a reflection of normal operation! I alternated ports and cables, only one panel had the poor quality....

Awesome color, brightness, sleek design, thin bezel! Best picture in its class

Stand is stiff; adjusting feels like it could break the stand, but it doesn't. Digital connections required me to perform scaling modifications (overscan/underscan) as other noted. I bought two of these monitors, one has a green tint and reduced...

Not bad, but...

 

I can't really understand why they didn't make the stand as nice as the rest of the monitor. Disappointing, but not a deal breaker.

Picture is very pretty, menu is easy to navigate and understand. Light weight. 2 HDMI ports

External power supply. Stand really is quite cheap, can't raise or lower. Tilt is ok

Monitor is huge!!

 

Couldn't get to use the whole screen when connecting HDMI to DVI so I switched to VGA and there is noticeable difference in image quality I will fiddle around to get it the way I want to, but over all good monitor.

Light and slim. LED Display is huge Has separate power adapter. high resolution. Games look great, no ghosting effects. No dead pixels

No VESA mounting. Screen flickers when going to recommended resolution. Don't know if it's my video card which is old, I'll post an update after I get a newer video card. Settings have to be adjusted, text does not look sharp, but I haven't messed with...

amazing monitor

 

Samsung needs to make more monitors woth the same contrast ratio

The picture on this monitor is absolutely breautiful. Great picture options for different applications

Why couldn't samsung make a monitor like this but with the nice designs of some of the other models. Doesn't tilt

IMPORTANT INFO ON STAND TILT

 

So a lot of reviews complain about the stand angle, and having to prop up the front with cards or something. Well it tilts up and down! It doesn't look like it because the hinge isn't visible, and it is kind of stiff. But if you try, it tilts just fine...

Great display, extremely light and thin monitor, good looking overall

Stand is a bit wobbly, but it DOES tilt! See Other Thoughts

Great Monitor @ Reasonable Price

 

The base is plenty sturdy - Just make sure the screw on the bottom is securely tightened down. At first glance it appears like a lock (i.e. half turn one way to lock, half turn the other way to unlock) but it really is a screw that takes several...

Excellent LED at an affordable (imho) price. Purchased this as a 2nd monitor to use for web/email/telecommuting/etc. while gaming or watching videos on main screen. Colors are sharp and vibrant and nice response time

Takes a little bit of fiddling with the settings to get it just the way I wanted. The recommended settings in some of the reviews below are an excellent starting baseline ; It makes the larger 26" LCD sitting next to it look substandard

Purchased 2 of these

 

Other people have said that these monitors don't adjust, but it requires a little pressure and you can swing the monitors up and down 60 degrees. plenty enough to accommodate any desk setup. People should know what they are talking about before they...

These monitors run very cool compared to the 2 24 inch dell lcd monitors on my other PC ; Using the magic bright options made changing the monitor settings as easy as clicking three times in the menu ; Picture quality is stunning ; Touch sensitive...

No mounting brackets, and the stands that come with the monitors are not the greatest. They are adequate, but a monitor in this price range should have brackets for wall mounting. It is a small negative, but still a negative none the less ; Talking to...

Great Monitor

 

This is a great monitor, but you might have to tinker with the settings to get a great picture, such as putting the response time to normal and the HDMI black level to low. Otherwise, everything is good.

GREAT picture quality, extremely thin and lightweight, lower power consumption than non-LED ones

flimsy stand, but not that big of a problem. However, there's no wall mount in my knowledge

Consumer review by:

Great Monitor

 

It does have a slightly flimsy stand, but not bad enough for me to worry about even with my crazy 2 year old. Oh and don't listen to some of these people, it does tilt.

Great monitor! Outstanding picture and my games and movies look great on it

None

Great Monitor

 

Add "touch of color" to it and replace the one VGA with a third HDMI or a DVI-D. No one these days really uses VGA anymore. Would be nice to see a wall mount option.

Bought this one to replace my 19" also samsung. This is a nice step up. The light is evenly distributed by the LED back light. the response is fast. I play video games on this monitor. I have my PS3 and my Xbox360 hooked up to the HDMI and my computer...

No ability to VESA mount. Must come up with my own method to mount. There should be a faint back light on the touch sensitive buttons for easier input switching when its dark in the room. You get use to where the button is
