Pros: It's decent monitor, has plenty of inputs and does its job. It does white really well, and has a good contrast ratio, but the color just seems off to me. But all and all I'm satisfied with the quality of the picture.
Cons: I would have given this monitor 3 or 4 stars had it not been for the obnoxious OSD that displays everytime it's turned on or comes out of sleep/hibernate/blank screensaver, etc. This completely ruins the monitors. I have to turn it off everytime I use my computer. The OSD is just an image of some of the specs of the monitor. It looks like a sticker you'd see on a display model. Why this is displayed on every turn is beyond me.
Another thing is that the settings do not stick for long as it randomly resets itself after a certain period of time. So, I'm stuck with the default settings. Using my GPU's drivers control panel was an awkward work around.
Other Thoughts: Maybe the OSD issue isn't the best reason to give a monitor 1 star, but it's just so annoying that it makes me hate this monitor for something that would be so easy for Samsung to fix.
The only reason I haven't returned and gotten a different one is because I'm lazy and it's used as a second monitor which I use for gaming and video, so the picture and color issues I have with it are irrelevant.
As my uncle used to say, "You get what you pay for and a little bit less."
