5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitor. Excellent Price.

Pros: Ive had this monitor for over a year now and it still works like it did out of the box. Im surprised to see that the price has only come down ten dollars since I purchased it though, but I guess that's because its of good quality still. Very crisp and clear display, at night it'll brighten the whole room :).

Cons: I think the top left of the screen is slightly darker than the rest of the screen. It's hardly noticeable and sometimes I wonder if it's just me, but when working in Photoshop and other imaging programs I tend to notice it. It's probably just mine, I doubt this happens on all of them of course.

4 out of 5 eggs204B

Pros: No complaints with performance or image.

Cons: I find it hard to keep the screen level. The stand allows the screen to be rotated, but there's no center detent, it tends to wobble.

Other Thoughts: My monitor died, I filed a warranty claim on Jan 1, as of the 17th the replacement still has not shipped. Samsung have been unresponsive. Their after-sales service is the pits, I will avoid Samsung products in the future.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective Panel

Pros: Excellent color, contrast, etc. No problems with stand as others have voiced.

Cons: Backlight failing in 4th month of use. Upon research, it is not an entirely uncommon fault with this model.

Other Thoughts: Replacement refurb on the way but it took Samsung customer service 6 days from the day they approved relacement until they shipped it out. Of all my internet computer purchases, I've had the most trouble with monitors.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent choice for anything!

Pros: Fabulous monitor. Strong text, fast response, couldn't be happier. Zero blurring in fast moving DVD or game scenes. Great upgrade from a Samsung 933DF (i believe) 19" CRT. Great price, flawless reliability, would certainly buy again for second system.

Cons: I don't own the 204BW, rather the 205BW, but differences are indiscernable. Sometimes wish the contrast ratio were slightly higher, but that's just picking it completely apart. No problems.

Other Thoughts: Can't go wrong with 20" of real estate. 1680x1050 native resolution an excellent choice for 8800 GTS 320/x1900 XT and above. 8600/HD2600 need not apply for any reasonably new game with this monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Colors

Pros: Very Bright. Nice Contrast. High adjustability makes it easy to find ideal viewing position. Good Value. Great monitor for everyday use. Movies look especially nice.

Cons: THE STAND!! Difficult to calibrate the color. It bright but if you using it for color correcting photos, it's hard to find the right settings.

Other Thoughts: I bought the 204BW in November '06. I've tried to After about 6 months I had the same problem with the tilting stand as everyone else. I must say the RMA process was the most painless I've ever experienced. Went online and entered my info. 5 days later I did a swap for a replacement at my local UPS store. After owning my original with a dead pixel for almost a year. I was happy to receive a refurb with no a good stand and no dead pixels.
