Pros: This monitor is a fantastic upgrade. I used to have two monitors, but now only have this single one. As a developer, I often have two windows open - my IDE and a browser - on this monitor I can easily stack them side-by-side and have plenty more than enough working space for both. My productivity has definitely increased and I find that my eyes and neck are not sore after a long coding session. I cannot say how valuable the curve is, but this monitor is much easier to work with. As an added bonus - though I don't use it - it does have a standard VESA mount.
Cons: It does not take a standard line cord for power input and has a separate brick-style adapter. This makes it a little cumbersome to move, but for most people this shouldn't be an issue. Definitely not suitable for taking to LAN parties.
Other Thoughts: From a gaming perspective, I have mixed feelings on this monitor, namely only due to its native resolution. Not many games natively support its resolution, so the picture can be a little distorted with some games. Overall, though, this is the fault of the game developers, not Samsung, so I can't dock an egg for it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor is just fantastic to work on. The size makes it very easy to have two windows open simultaneously and definitely helps with productivity. I was hesitant to give up my dual-monitor setup, but I am happy with my decision to "downsize" to this monitor.
Cons: The only complaint I have is that it has some serious issues with glare. If there is any light source behind me, the screen washes out where it reflects. I feel like this is the result of the screen itself (whether it be coating, texture, whatever), hence the -1 egg.
Other Thoughts: I cannot speak to the audio quality of the built-in speakers. I never use them, so they were not a selling point for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL G751 Shin-Etsu Thermal Interface Material
Pros: You cannot beat the thermal conductivity ratings for this stuff. It outperforms pretty much everything on the market. It comes in a super-easy-to-use syringe that has about enough for one, maybe two installs. During use, this stuff doesn't cake on and solidify like most other thermal pastes do; so, removal is a breeze and doesn't require anything more than a cloth (nope, don't even need rubbing alcohol to get it off).
Cons: Pricey, but that's what you pay for raw performance.READ FULL REVIEW
