I've been wanting a new LED screen for a while and I stumbled upon this one. It has great vibrant color and a lot of customization features to boot. The Magic Upscale and Magic Angle are pretty cool, but they don't really make much of a difference to me as I'm using it mostly for gaming. I think the way to navigate the menus is rather intuitive but the nob (4-Direction, push to bring up menu) on the bottom underneath the Samsung Logo seemed to be an awkward place to put the controls. I wish it had a height adjustment so I could match it with the height of my ASUS monitor, but not really something I think it's worth docking any stars for. The screen does tilt upward though about 25~30 degrees from vertical position but does not tilt downwards. If the monitor happens to fail, pixels go dead or anything else, will update. Overall, happy with the screen and would recommend.

Perfect! One of the few monitors with an HDMI input, very reasonably priced. It looks great on a desk, not too big or too small. The picture is absolutely phenomenal. The stand is a dust magnet, but that's not going to prevent me from recommending this monitor. I hooked up my PS3 to it and my external sound system and it's a perfect game station for my dorm. Also watch blue ray movies on it and couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of the picture. I'd buy a second one as soon as I found a use for having more, you cannot go wrong with this monitor.

I'm pleased with these monitors (bought 2 for dual-screen setup).

Pros:
- Price
- Power button/controls are pretty cool (it's a low profile joystick on the bottom of the monitor)
- Brightness/sharpness controls are very nice
- Nice sleek modern look

Cons:
- No DVI port
- Monitor tilt - people complain this monitor can't tilt. Apparently it can, but its not very easy. I'm stealing this from a response by the manufacturer on another review: "Please be informed that the monitor does indeed tilt. Place the monitor on a flat sturdy surface, hold the base down firmly with one hand, grasp the top center of the bezel with your other hand and push firmly and gently back. This should tilt the monitor screen back. To tilt the monitor down, just push the bottom of the bezel gently and firmly back while pulling the top of the bezel towards you."
- Height isn't adjustable

The Samsung LED monitor was a smart purchase. Like all Samsung products the industrial design is first rate. Very cool minimal design. Works both on my Samsung ATIV Book with Windows 8.1 and MacBook Air with Mac OS X Mavericks.

I like everything about this monitor except for the height. Yes, I did take note of the height in the product description before purchasing. However, I thought it would tilt forward. It does not. It will only go to 90 degrees. The monitor does tilt, and does have a decent tilt range, but it's all backwards (tilts the screen upward). My monitor must sit on a slightly elevated platform so the ability to also tilt downward would have been nice.

That said, I love Samsung electronics and this is a quality monitor. If you don't need the monitor to tilt forward then this is a great buy.

OK. This is my third and last review 'improvement' for this product.

1. I bought the monitor via Amazon, free delivery to NYC for buying over $35 worth of products. Arrived one day earlier than the 6 days promised. That's good.
2. Easy hook up, using the vgi cable (silly me, I didn't realize my compu has no HMDI connection), and assembly was easy too. The "quick manual" is good ONLY for assembly.Instructions on how to set your monitor colors are in the user manual cd. Not much help either. These instructions, unfortunately, are NOT user-friendly, especially if you are NOT a computer techy. To this point, with all the improvement I made in understanding the system, I still don't know how to use the so-called "calibration" tool. I just did what I could by GUESSING and letting my visual sense guide me. I still don't know how the so-called "patch" is used. You have to guess, use the "preview" and adjust again until you get it right.
3. Monitor can be tilted up and down as described, that's good too. The position WILL affect your perception of image EVEN if you turn off the angle setting.
4. Despite using analog system, the images are clear and beautiful. Having said that...
5. ....it takes time to tame the beast. I just learned (3 days later)to use 'Magic'. Color and brightness controls will be available depending on which setting you are using. You may want to change settings and see how it all varies. You have to PLAY a lot with the whole Magic thing to understand each one of its settings. Trial and error IS the ONLY and BEST way to tame the beast. At the end, you will have FABULOUS colors.
6. FONTS: Some settings, like 'sharpness' in "image settings" (at Magic) WILL affect fonts quality.So when you are fumbling to get everything set, keep looking at the letters on the top of your browser to see how fonts clarity is affected.
7. It really is a BIG screen. I have to keep it at a distant greater than the little monitor I had before because it's too big. It feels like being in a small-screen movie theater when I watch movies. I will probably mount it on a wall here.

Summary:
I have slowly learned to 'tame' the beast. I am absolutely satisfied with the color quality the monitor gives. I'm enjoying it immensely. I imagine (and expect) that the quality will improve exponentially once I get the HDMI adapter for the compu. The only draw back, as I said before, is that the instructions and 'calibration' are not user-friendly. Because of that, I give 4stars.Now to wait for the TEST OF TIME: will it last at least six months without 'issues'? Will see. I'm a Samsung fan, so I expect it will pass that milestone.

I looked online and decided to also check in a store before deciding on a new monitor. This one stood out as being much prettier in person with nice crisp colors and clear edges to the graphics compared to the Asus model that was next to it. I am happy I got this one instead I think it is worth the extra $20 I paid for better quality.

Really great monitor! I actually got this today, setup was super simple. I first hooked up the unit with the hdmi port and the picture looked great. Then I tried out the vga cable. I was playing my online game to see how it would look and started messing around with the menu. Thought it looked good before but when I selected cinema mode my brain exploded. Wow, just simply fantastic. The screen was sharp and clear. Very happy with my purchase. Will put up an updated after 6 months or a year.

For the price this definitely seems to do the job. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that looks good and does the job for a second monitor. If you are like me you will definitely be pleased.
