5 out of 5 eggsBest Monitor ever owned

Pros: I picked this monitor up after reading a glowing review from government computer news(GCN). The color accuracy is amazing, as are the rich blacks. Having all the inputs make it the best deal you will find for HD.

Cons: There are some syncing issues with my Xbox 360 and the monitor, but I dont know which one is causing the problem. You just have to turn the monitor switch in the back on and off. Not a pain if you are sitting right in front of it.

Other Thoughts: I am worried that samsung will never offer this again, since it is better than most HD televisions at a fraction of the cost. I wish I could afford another. Never had a problem with the response rate (unless maybe the delay is the reason I am so bad at COD 4)

5 out of 5 eggsA Great monitor, clear and wonderful

Pros: This thing is beautiful and has a very very bright clear screen. It can rotate 90 degrees for a landscape view, which is great for laying in bed watching TV. I have NO PROBLEMS with the input lag. I have an EVGA 7950 GX2, I use samsung's drivers, and I have a razer Copperhead. I have NEVER had any input lag.

SUPPORTS HARDWARE MONITOR SCALING. If you use a nvidia 7xxx series you need this to play older games @ 4:3. This is what originally sold me on this monitor.
Even remembers when you set games/aps to 4:3 or widescreen mode and AUTOMATICALLY changes to that whenever the game/app is run!

Cons: My high-end setup does NOT have input lag, even in FPSes. I don't know what everyone is complaining about. The speakers obviously suck.

Other Thoughts: A great monitor that does everything just about perfect. It even has tv style inputs for game consoles and such. A real gem, it's worth the high price tag.

5 out of 5 eggswill stick with samsung lcds for now...

Pros: A while ago, I bought a few 19 inch Samsung SyncMaster 910T. Was extremely happy with them. When I decided to upgrade them with a pair of Viewsonic LCDs... boy, was I disappointed.
Went back, and replaced them with these. Very satisfied.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsSharp picture quality, overall great monitor

Pros: Excellent image quality, high contrast ratio (provides a good image), multiple types of input (DVI, VGA, component), bult-in speakers

Cons: The 8ms response time makes it half or almost half the speed of newer monitors with 5ms or 4ms response times. Even still, this monitor works great for gaming, in my experience.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm glad I got this

Pros: I debated endlessly on S-IPS, or S-PVA LCDs (don't even think about TN LCDs if you do photo editing). This is an S-PVA monitor and I love the brightness, contrast, and overall color accuracy. By the way I use a Colorvision Spyder2Pro for hardware calibration. Monitor is sharp and fast enough for video editing (and games too).

Cons: Non yet.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper

Pros: Crisp, bright image, huge screen, very good adjustability, good connectivity for video. On-screen adjustments work well. Works well with Linux.

Cons: Would it have killed them to put in USB ports? I have to decide, browser window on the left, in the middle, on the right? Decisions, decisions...

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a nice 17" Sony LCD monitor, so I wanted a bigger screen, but with good image quality for photo editing, etc. Big cheap screens are plentiful, but when you dig into the reviews you see they're not right for image editing and a lot of other things. The Samsung is an excellent screen with very good size. 22" screens with HDCP (?) seem all the rage on the Windows side, but I don't use my machine to look at movies or anything, and all I really see with that extra inch of screen is the same resolution with a bigger dot pitch. Not sure that's worth it. Anyway, the Samsung blows away our Dell monitors at work and is even nicer than my Sony. Works well with Linux (just changed the modes in my xorg.conf file and the Nvidia proprietary driver did the rest, no mode lines or anything).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase-don't hesitate

Pros: Awesome clarity and very bright screen. The swivel screen is great but makes any kind of built in cable management difficult. Nature of the beast I guess, doesn't bother me...

Cons: None yet, and really not expecting any...

Other Thoughts: I researched this purchase for too long. Don't waste your time, this things great!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice looking monitor. Nice set of inputs. I've connected my PS2 via component and it looks great. It's very easy to switch between input sources.

Cons: Input lag... it exists. I noticed it right away. This is my 4th LCD and is the 1st to have a noticeable lag. Windows loads a generic plug-n-play driver. Make sure you install the Samsung driver from the CD. It seemed to reduce the sensation of lag for me.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best LCD I've owned

Pros: I ran pixel buddy on it, 0 dead pixels, no back light bleed, no screen door effect. Very good viewing angles, great colours when adjusted. Lots of input and display options and very very adjustable. DVI input work and gives very crisp sharp text and is not bugged!

Cons: the monitor was far to bright and colour temp was off when set at default, needed some time to adjust correctly! included software is a joke but most new video card drivers offer same ( portrait mode, colour adjustment wizards etc). response time is more like 12-16 ms not too bad but not great either ( compared to other 8ms lcds I had ).

stand mount seems small the monitor is stable but can tilt when adjustments are made.
OSM is not easy to navigate.
built in speakers are a joke!

There is some sparkling effects in movies, I've seen this in other lcds with lower response times ( 12-16ms ). movies look good from far tho.
not cheap!

Other Thoughts: a rather pricey monitor but well worth it if you need it! I have used several different LCDS and this is one of the best so far. I would get the viewsonic vx2025wm over this since you could save a bit if you could find one and don't need all the extra features since the extra 1" and inputs might not be worth $120 more.

Another note about lcds for those coming from crts, even the fastest 2ms lcds have input lag compared to any crt, also note that lcds are progressive displays so any input source ( eg tv input ) that is interlaced immediately looks worse on it. Keep this in mind when comparing lcds to crts.
