5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Thrilled!

Pros: If you are looking for a very nice 20 inch flat panel wide screen, here it is! Remarkably simple setup using the software disk. No failures, works the first time and allows all the tweaking necessary using the mouse. Bravo, they finally got it right. This replaces a Samsung 930B flat panel which has thousands of hours on it and is just tired out. The 930B had the sorriest software ever written. I used Photoshop's Gamma to set the display on 930. Not necessary with this B2030. I was pleased to find a digital cable, VGA cable and power cable in the box. I didn't need them, but thoughtful, nevertheless.

Cons: No real cons. However, be aware the stand is a bit wobbly but does okay. In the short period of time I have used this display I am pleased beyond my expectations.

Other Thoughts: This display is powered by a EVGA 9600 GSO card. It does well and considering I am not a serious Gamer it handles my needs. The processor is a 2.5 gig Core2 with 3 gigs of on board RAM. I don't know if that information is necessary, but my comment is predicated on those items powering the display.

United Parcel, as reliable as the sunrise, had it here in three days as usual. They have me spoiled.

5 out of 5 eggsSamsung Market Leaders

Pros: This monitor is phenominal. It is defeats expectations for a wide screen, so buy in confidence. Samsung as usual is always way ahead of the game, which is demonstrated and even hidden within the new monitor, at first glance, you just want to get into wide screening. The design is lightweight, sturdy, and easy to operate. The settings are adjusted by sensitively touching the buttons, no pressing necessary, so you don't roughhouse with your nice new monitor. You can find the settings you prefer without excessive hassle. My unit did not need any horizontal or verticle adjustments or any stupid stuff like that, corner to corner from the start. Comes with digital DVI cable (preferable over VGA, comes with both) which is a SUPER improvement! When optimized settings, the pixels are super crisp and colors are the VIVID ones you are seeking. The fonts are all clear are clean and if you like your monitor smaller, the fonts are super legible and so tight and clean.

Cons: The stand is a little wobbley, however it is super stable. The plastic is durable and the neck is very thick. It is more an issue about the surface that it is placed on, which causes the wobbling, which is important to understand that this is high grade monitor, and it is best to have a nice desk or surface to place this monitor on. Also, the top of the monitor is slightly angled forward, so that the monitor is not completely vertical, which if is set on a surface lower than your eyes disallowes you from viewing the monitor as intended, which you will notice a difference. You would not want to view it in this way, and this is intended by Samsung. You will want to view your monitor head on. This also improves visibility and takes serious strain off your eyes, especially since it is designed to do so (no bright blinding lights). There is no way to angle the face up or down, and the neck is stationary and can not be adjusted at all. Not any real issues. This is a new optimized monitor.

Other Thoughts: When you make your monitor display smaller on regular monitors, you get angry and readjust to a compermisable settings. In this case, you can keep it nice a small, which is nice for doing many things. You don't get confused, and all windows can remain open, etc... You will definatly want this monitor to be at eye level. To overcome this problem, I am going to built a nice stand for mine out of scrap wood (entertainment center), which will make my computing right in my face! This is sweet and does not hurt your eyes. This is the best part about it. The monitor is an ECO (MagicECO)model which always means great things. Nice glowing blue I/O LED, which goes good with black. I am using XP and I am still not sure if the wide setting makes more space in the toolbar, but you can expand the window space in XP, instead of stretching the surface to fit. Note this upon purchase. The first day, the graphics were affected by this. You want to be sure to adjust to 1440x900 or something like this

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This monitor looks amazing...1600x900 resolution makes doing everything nicer, there is so much more space for activities. The picture is bright and clear. Also, I bought from best buy for 139.99, so was an awesome deal. Though I would still say it's worth 20 bucks more, unless you can get a 23" for that much....

Cons: The power cord at first seems a bit loose, but you just have to shove it in the hole....

4 out of 5 eggsDecent enough...

Pros: Sharp, crisp picture with good contrast and brightness. Set-up was fast, and while it was well packed, the packaging materials were not excessive.

Cons: Instructions in the box were a little dis-jointed and confusing regarding monitor settings - though the pdf on disk was thorough and easy to understand. The stand is a little lacking and is wobbly if you go to move the monitor. This could definitely use some refinement/improvement.

Other Thoughts: Decent general purpose montor. Disk comes with a driver and some utility programs. Didn't use the driver, but am intrigued by Samsung's MultiScreen program. Unfortunately I have yet to find documentation for it on their web site.

5 out of 5 eggsDrop dead gorgeous

Pros: I chose this monitor as the centerpiece of a system I am building for my mother.

There are plenty of monitors out there that offer a very nice picture in a very basic flat black housing. Nothing wrong with that at all and it is what I use myself.

But for her, I wanted something with a great picture and also some pizazz.

The glossy finish looks fantastic and the little plexiglass curve on the bottom adds some additional class.

The buttons are cool because they are conductive (?). You only have to touch the surface to get them to respond so there is no actual button to push.

Of course, it is a Samsung so the picture looks great as well.

Cons: None that I have found. It is a little more expensive than comparable monitors. But those other monitors don't look near this good.

Other Thoughts: Have only used it briefly to verify the new build was working properly. The real verdict will come from mom after I set it up in her office.
