Very Poor

 

I bought this monitor because it was among the ones with the "pivot" function, i.e. you can rotate it by 90 degrees. However, you cannot use it in that position because you DO NOT see anything due to poor, very poor viewing angles. Furthermore, the colors are quite annoying, with a color temperature so cold (despite what you do) that makes the whites too bright. There are also problems related to an excessive sharpness that makes most fonts very unpleasant. This monitor is only for dvd-viewers and gamers, even if is often described as being professional. Frankly if I could go back in time, I would not purchase it.

Low power consumtion with great picture.

 

I have it plugged in digitaly which works great. The color and clarity are great too. I really like it. I'm using an ATI Radeon 4800 series video card with 1GB memory.

Ajustable stand, can rotate monitor and video ajustments work well. It came with a cleaning cloth

I have not found any. I've had it for 1 week

Good Picture Quality

 

Good picture quality when connected through Analog port (my laptop doesn't have a Digital port to connect to a monitor, so Analog is my only experience). Only complaint so far is the power indicator light flashes when in stand-by mode, so I end up...

Adjustable Stand, Brightness and Contrast/Black Levels are Good

Flashing Light when in Stand-by Mode is Annoying, Fingerprints and Dust are Very Apparent on the Glossy Finish

Samsung 24" BX2440X Full HD Widescreen Monitor, Black

 

An excellent monitor so far at least. I was VERY disappointed that they do Not have drivers for Windows 7 for it yet. If you are running XP or earlier it is great. If you are running Vista or XP you might want to consider a different monitor from a...

Samsung 24" BX2440X Full HD Widescreen Monitor, Black

 

This monitor is bright, I had to turn it down to 70%. Picture is sharp with vivid colors. The swivel and height adjustment are what truely sets this monitor apart. You don't see too many 24" monitors that swivel. The only cons that should be noted are...

Versatile, awesome monitor

 

One can't go wrong here. Whether you're a gamer, designer, engineer, or simply someone who likes a good amount of real estate in your monitors, you won't be disappointed.

The monitor is simply superb. A great picture; crisp and fast images even with the DVI input. It makes me weep tears of joy every time I play Crysis on it or watch a Blu-ray movie. It also has a 1sec start-up time ; One of the main reasons I bought...

Unfortunately the screen came with one small chip; not really a chip, but a incredibly small damaged spot with a total area of around maybe 2x3pixels. Not much to complain about, but it has been annoying on occasion

Two bad monitors in a row!

 

Samsung's Quality Control is abysmal. Giving Newegg this many bad monitors is pathetic. I thought that each monitor was tested by Samsung before being sent off. Looks like Samsung needs new employees to make sure stuff like this doesn't happen. At the...

I got two bad monitors in a row. First monitor was dark on the top half, washed out bright on the bottom. Sent it in for a replacement, and the replacement was damaged. A strip of LED's at the bottom are dead, making a section of the screen almost...

WOW

 

Other:This Monitor is amazing. I was using a CRT monitor before recieving this monitor and the picture and quality is Flawless!

Pros: Can be adjusted to your level, No problems at all, turns left and right no problems and also can be turned vertically. neat to have but don't really know what to use it for. LED Backlit is amazing. Very Light and easy to setup

Cons: When turned vertically you have to unplug the powercord and then turn it. Would have been nice to have the powercord on the other side, doesn't bother me because im never going to turn it sideways
