Purchased this monitor as an add-on for my work laptop (Lenovo T510) for home use. Very nice picture, after I finished tweaking the settings. I'm using a Display port to HDMI adapter cable from monoprice to plug this monitor into my laptop. Setup was easy with Windows 7, just plug it in. I did have to spend some time tweaking the display settings to get the picture right. Specifically, if you are using this as a PC monitor (not as a TV) you need to go into the setup menu and change it from AV mode to PC mode. This improved the picture quality substantially. Text that seemed blurry became crisp. You should also tweak the brightness and contrast until it looks good, as the factory settings can be ridiculous on these things.

I'm running it in it's native resolution of 1920x1080. Haven't tried the Samsung software, but I may set this up when I have some time. Definitely a great buy at $200 on Amazon.

Only real cons to this product are the tricky touch controls on the front - takes a little getting used to. And the stand is not height adjustable.

I'm giving this monitor an okay because physically, it's a great piece of work. The colors are great and i use it to play Starcraft 2 and Modern Warfare.

Size is great for a computer monitor and HDMI and CRT connections to computers is flawless.

My only gripe, which is kinda of a big one is that Samsung's monitor software doesn't work.. at least it's completely INCOMPATIBLE with Windows 7. Whenever it is installed on Windows and runs, my computer pretty much restarts itself every bootup. Therefore causing me to not be able to start my computer at all. I had to use system restore and go back to before i installed Samsung's monitor software to fix the problem.

It would have been a great idea if the software works - to be able to control all monitor settings via computer desktop. but oh wellz. I use it like a normal HD monitor. Amazon offered a great price when i got it. Till this day, i have not seen a 1080p 24" monitor with equivalent specs at near the same price point.

Quick Review:

PRO: By far the nicest, cleanest picture I've ever had using a monitor. Amazing color and clarity, plus supports RGB for older monitors, HDMI for a TV/game input, and DVI for a normal computer display.
CON: No buttons. Front touchpanel not friendly to my ogre hands. While you read this review, you'll think I'm an idiot for having trouble turning the thing on and getting it to switch to the right display (yes, I tried the 'power' and 'Source' buttons). But I just might have my comeuppance when you're sitting in front of a darkened monitor that won't display anything. Some fiddling/luck/time got it working and it's been a champ since.

PS: This monitor (at time of review) is listed under 3D monitors on amazon.com. It is not 3D ready for Nvidia's 3D tech, and at 60Hz, the best you'd get is 30fps 3D, if your graphics card even supports that. However, even though I bought this monitor on the off-chance that it was 3D compatible, I'm still keeping it since it's so pretty.

I recently purchased this monitor when I saw the price drop, which put it within my "sweet spot" for an impulse buy. I already had a 22" Samsung (which is now enjoying its new dual-monitor configuration) and wanted the higher resolution, along with the larger screen. Being a "tech-head," we are prone to constantly wanting bigger, better and newer. :)

The monitor is very attractive, bright and clear and I have no complaints about its performance. The resolution is spot-on and I really didn't have to do much in terms of the settings after running the included MagicTune software that automatically adjusts the settings for optimal performance. Plus, the extra screen real estate dominates your field of vision, allowing you to really feel like you are "inside" of what you are working on and is great for when you are working on websites, surfing, streaming video and the like.

My only complaint is that the base is kind of rubbish. It holds the monitor up fine, but feels loose (too thin) at the point where the monitor meets the neck, therefore a push in either direction can cause it to lean to the left or the right. Thankfully minor jolts (hitting the desk with your knees etc) does not cause it to lean, but still it is a slightly annoying design flaw because adding pressure to either side (i.e. cleaning the monitor) can cause it to tilt. Beyond that, it works great when adjusting it forwards or backwards to achieve the viewing angle that you prefer (I went with simply straight on).

The outer bevels are a rounded glossy black finish, which is attractive, but I would have preferred a more flat screen look. This is a minor and aesthetic complaint, as the price when I purchased it ($209.99) was too good to pass up.

EQUIPMENT:

I use this monitor with the HIS Radeon HD 6950 IceQ X Turbo 2GB (256bit) GDDR5 2x Mini-DisplayPort HDMI 2x DVI (HDCP) PCIe X16 2.1 Video Card H695QNT2G2M.

QUALITY WITH HDMI CABLE:

The edges of the letters were not clear or sharp and looked quite blurry. I checked all of my settings, tweaking both the monitor and the GPU in Catalyst Control Center to no avail. I was understandably disappointed as I love Samsung monitors/TVs and my first assumption was that it was the monitor.

QUALITY WITH DVI CABLE:

My GPU offers multiple outputs (DVI, Mini-Display port & HDMI) so I decided to connect a DVI cable to the monitor instead of using the HDMI. Wow, That was it! That solved the problem...and apparently, it is not uncommon as I found countless references to it after searching.

BTW, it was not the actual HDMI cable itself. I am assuming it is the "processing" of the HDMI signal done by my GPU (HIS Radeon HD6950). There may be a remedy to the problem within the GPU's software settings, however, I did not find the right combination of settings to completely eliminate the fuzz when using the HDMI.

ONBOARD GRAPHICS VS. HD6950 GPU:

There was no blurry text when using my computer's onboard graphics, my problem was limited to using the monitor with an HDMI cable and my HD6950 GPU.

COMPARED WITH AN ASUS VW246W:

I ordered an ASUS VW246H 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black first after researching reviews.
