SAMSUNG 30IN WS LCD 2560X1600 1000:1

 

This is the monitor you need to use with the top of the line video cards from nVidia/ATI.

Top of the line resolution, crisp, sharp and excellent for video and/or game playing

Price, should be less than $1,000

I''ve stepped up from two 20 inch Apple Cinemas to the Samsung 30. How did I ever do without one before?

Excellent picture. Great for text with a big desktop. I especially like having more vertical space. Excellent with movies and video. More reasonably priced than the Apple Cinema. 3 year warranty. Works out of the box with my Apple MacBook Pro

Only 1 input (that''s what everyone says). Only available in black (picky picky!)

Newer more pricier ones have mult ports, multi display res. IF going for multi use, nut jsut for computer, then look to these.

big brilant screen 30" is a desk top filler

Going to need good grafix card (s) to run at 2560x1600. that or 1280x680 only suported formats, at full screen ( in winfx

Did i tell you you would love it!

Best ever for Cad drawings

The cords are hard to hook up to the bottom as you can not see where they go

Unreal. I was in a complete and constant state of euphoria for the first week - now, only when I''m looking at it. The color and brightness is phenomenal! I run 2 LCD monitors at work and this is so much better due to the resolution - no contest......

30 Inch @ 2560x1600 - need anything else be said

USB ports could have been easier to get to from the front of the monitor

Display & input issues

 

I exchanged a Sony BRAVIA? 32" LCD HDTV (KDL-V32XBR1) for the Samsung 30" Slimfit HDTV (TX-S3082WH) and I'm starting to regret it, somewhat. I had hopes for this set after reading a number of on-line reviews. But, before I get to why I'm not very happy...

Very clear HD image ; good remote ; better non-HD image over LCD/plasma

non-HD image not as good as 10 yr old ProScan tube ; image warping
