Good monitor, but only the basic features
This monitor is very good in terms of the fundamentals. I've found the colour to be good, have noticed no blurring during video or gaming, it's bright and sharp and the viewing angle is very good. It also looks really, really nice, Samsung has raised the bar on aesthetics. The on-screen display is packed full of settings to allow you to tinker with the image.
The downside is that it's fairly feature-limited otherwise. It's only 1680x1050, so can't display full HD. There are no USB or HDMI ports, the stand is pretty wobbly and features very little adjustability in terms of height or angle or rotation. Also, when I put my computer (a MacBook Pro) to sleep and wake it up, sometimes the monitor shows only static for about 2-3 seconds before displaying the picture (even with auto-select input off).
So, in short, this monitor looks great and has a great picture, but not much beyond that. It's a good, solid, cheap monitor for gaming, browsing, video, etc. Just don't expect too many bells and whistles.

Great screen for PC Gaming. Would recommend!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I bought this product as I wanted a larger PC screen which would show off the graphics of the games I play and it does this very well.
It is a smart looking screen, quite lightweight and just what I required.
I like the fact that it powers down by itself.
