5 out of 5 eggs Still going strong after 6 years 08/11/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 (DCR 3000:1)

Pros:

Great size, resolution, color, and finish. Bought this in early 2007 and haven't had a single issue with it since.

Cons:

Obviously the viewing angles aren't up to modern standards, but used as a single display for typical home use, viewing angle is not really much of a concern. However, you really have to be directly in front of it to avoid color shifting on the horizontal extremeties, so I'm looking forward to an eventual upgrade.

The anti-glare coating has developed some permanent blemishes over the years, mainly due to my neglecting to clean it quickly after getting finger prints and other stuff on it. Still, it's held up good enough to keep me satisfied.

I should note that mine didn't really start getting blemishes until I had kids - the things they get on their hands... it's best not to think about it.

Other Thoughts:

Great display for its time and still very usable even now. I see that many others haven't had as much luck as I have in terms of longevity, but I guess that's normal in the world of electronics.

I should say that the screen has never had a problem functioning, but over the past couple years it has developed a buzz/hum that lasts about ten seconds after turning on or waking from sleep. At first I thought it might be the beginning of the end, but it's never gotten worse, so I just learned to ignore it.
