1 out of 5 eggsnice monitor, bad software

Pros: Very good picture quality. Pictures of sunsets look incredible, as does just about anything. But is the picture as accurate as Samsung claims it to be? Who knows.

Cons: Natural Color Expert, the terrible calibration program for this monitor. It crashes, and does not calibrate this monitor correctly. At least some of the other preset modes look ok. If Samsung cant get their own software right, should you really trust the monitor itself? I don't.

Other Thoughts: SHAME on Samsung for selling such an awsome monitor with such buggy software! Not acceptable, I regret buying this monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsCheck the specs yourself

Pros: Even better than the typically excellent Samsung display/image quality.

Cons: It's overly expensive. The premium for this 24" monitor is equal to or more than what you pay for getting the same technology in their 81 series LCD HDTV with over twice the screen dimension. The difference in display isn't quite up to the premium unless very critical image quality is important and you make money with your monitor like I do. Even then I'm not sure but in the most critical applications. This is a LOT to spend for a monitor of this size today.

Other Thoughts: Mr. check the specs needs to check himself. Power consumption is on par with other 24" monitors (typically rated 100-130w, the XL24 is 100w *max*), apparently he was comparing to the new T series, the T240 uses 60w max supposedly. More typical the 2493HM is 100w max, 245BW 100w, 245T 130w, my own 244T is 100w max. My 244T weighs 22 lbs. The XL24 is listed at 22 lbs. A lot of LEDs but they're neither that heavy nor power hungry. It's not heavier and it doesn't use more power however I don't know what the power stingy T240 weighs. The price premium just isn't relative to the display difference and I've had a XL24 right next to my 244T. I'm waiting to see a T240 or T260 next to my 244T.

5 out of 5 eggsHAD TO DO IT

Pros: This monitor is for CRITICAL picture clarity situations only!
the greatness of this monitor comes from many (led)
lights spread throughout the back of this (LCD) panel which
give this monitor extremely even lighting, rather than one or two fluorescent lights on the side which rely on optical diffusers to spread the light across the screen, making it less even (brighter near the edges). this is especially important with black and white images, such as an X-ray.

Cons: the contrast ratio advantage does NOT exist in real color terms. (check the specs versus others). and Because they replaced the thin and very light fluorescent bulbs with MANY
led's this monitor is actually heavier than most. (check the specs versus others). also though led's use very little current
because there are so many, this monitor actually uses more power than most, almost double!(check the specs versus others).

Other Thoughts: so if you work in a situation where you're image quality is extremely critical, this monitor will more than likely be great for you. if you play some games and maybe check some emails once in a while this monitor is way more than you need. HAPPY SHOPPING

5 out of 5 eggsTechnology

Pros: Amazing colors, VERY dark blacks, low power consumption, "easier" to look at. I don't own one of these but a couple of companies at the recent Web 2.0 expo had them.

Cons: High price

Other Thoughts: Mostly I just want to clarify other posts on here. This is an LED backed LCD monitor. It is NOT an LED monitor. What this means is that the LCD technology is nothing new - these actually use the exact same LCD panels that have been used for a while now. So when looking at this, or any other LED backed LCD, all of the same things that have always applied (LCD type, response rate, angle of viewing, etc) still apply.

What is new here is the light behind the LCD. Until recently every LCD was backed by a fluorescent light. Put simply this was the best we had. LEDs are better because: they use less power, they give a MUCH more consistent light (you won't see light & dark areas on any LED backed monitor like you do on most LCD monitors), they're lighter (weight) which is great for laptops, they're thinner (again, laptops), and they can actually be turned OFF per LED, drastically reducing power consumption and making blacks VERY black.

5 out of 5 eggsdon't post a review if you don't know what you're talking about

Pros: Purchased this monitor for use in cognitive neuroscience research where quality of display is paramount. Color and backlight consistency in this display are unparalleled--finally an LCD that rivals the display consistency of a high-end CRT. Yes, it is expensive, but if you think it is outrageously overpriced, then you likely don't need the features that make it expensive in the first place. This display isn't for playing WoW, it is for serious, color-critical business.

Cons: No cons about the monitor, just about people who leave 1-egg reviews about a product they neither own nor understand.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy its 2200 bucks

Pros: Its because its an LED LCD. This allows for dynamic back lighting instead of the standard lamp (imagine hundreds of small sources of light that change dynamically as opposed to 1 big one which is always the same everywhere!) This makes it have an AMAZING contrast ratio with little bleeding of light colors onto darks.

Cons: Worth 2200 bucks? Probably not but this is a brand new technology which is why it is so expensive.

5 out of 5 eggsWant to know why is this monitor so expensive?

Pros: Better colours than any LCD.

Cons: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Other Thoughts: The reason this monitor is so expensive is because it uses LEDs instead of an LCD panel. It is much brighter and has more vibrant colours than any LCD panel. It's colours are also closer to true colours than any other LCD. Although LEDs consume much less power, the amount of LEDs in the screen make it use as much power as any LCD monitor. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful monitor, I've seen them in action; but unless you are an artist or graphic designer, there really is no point to this monitor.

1 out of 5 eggs?

Pros: I cannot for the life of me figure out why this monitor is 2200 dollars. Someone help me out here.

Cons: Same as above.
