Pros: I just ordered my second one of these to replace a different, older monitor. The first one I bought over a year ago and absolutely loved, so when one of my others died, naturally I went and bought a second one of these Samsungs. It's 1920x1200 16:10 with vivid colors and fast response time, and the screen technology works well for everything I throw at it (games, web, videos). The monitors support DVI and Displayport inputs, but no HDMI so keep that in mind. The USB 3.0 hubs built into the back are very convenient; I didn't expect to care about or use them, but my first one's USB ports are almost always full.
The stand it comes with has a wide range of motion you can use to set it up just how you want, which is wonderful.
Cons: The stand is pretty easy to adjust on accident, which can be annoying if you accidentally bump the monitor.
Other Thoughts: I've read people saying that the monitor has issues with light bleed, but for me personally, I haven't seen anything of the sort on either of the two I now own of this model. Still, worth considering before purchasing.
The other thing to remember is that USB 3.0 uses a pretty hefty amount of data bandwidth, so having the 4 ports on the monitor in use can potentially affect the USB ports on the back of the computer, or vice versa.
Pros: I have yet to find something this card can't handle; the only slowdowns and issues I get are due to my horrible hard drive (which gets replaced soon). I haven't noticed any noise increase over my old 260GTX, and the installation was about as simple as a modern (ie huge) graphics card can be. Additionally, for the price (when I bought it a couple months back) the power it puts out is amazing.
Cons: It's big. Took a bit of effort to get the thing into my Antec 300 case and all the wires routed so they reached where they needed to be. That said, it does fit, with some room to spare, and everything got where it needed, so it's not a major issue.READ FULL REVIEW
