It is a sleek monitor with a nice gloss finish which matches my 2280HD.

Plus, you don't mess with the buttons on the bottom right corner, except for the ON/OFF button on the far right.

After good experience with a Samsung plasma television, I decided to try a monitor as well.

First of all, great customer service from amazon.com. Ordered the unit on June 4, received it on June 6!

Pros: Easy setup and hookup. Be sure to use the DVI-I cable hookups. That's because digital input is so much better than analog. Plus, you don't mess with the buttons on the bottom right corner, except for the ON/OFF button on the far right. All your settings are configured through the video card's software interface. Download the newest driver from the Samsung website, install, and you ready to go.

Cons: DO NOT INSTALL MagicColor! It's a waste of time and conflicts with Nvidia Control Panel which causes computer lockup in some instances. (At least it did with me.) You have virtually the same settings in the Nvidia Control Panel interface. plus the panel seems a little more intuitive.

The previous reviewer did an analog setup, when every video card on the market today comes with a DVI output jack, plus just about every LCD monitor has an input jack. It just doesn't make any sense to go analog. Plus Samsung includes both cables! DVI is the only way to Fly!

Additonal Notes: Nice finsh with the piano glossy black color. The base is somewhat adjustable, but a little wobbly. I ordered the Ergotron Neo-Flex LCD desk stand to go with this monitor's VESA mount. A lot more adjustabiliity including height, much heavier weight, and it is able to rotate the entire monitor for text work.

All in all, a good spend of my money and the free shipping is always a bonus. I chose Amazon over Newegg also, since I would get free shipping on all the products I bought.

I got this monitor to replace my 19" LCD gaming monitor and I love it. Beautiful and bright - no ghosting with 5 ms response time (2 ms with their acceleration tweaks). Its a great value for the price and the only minor issue is some backlight bleed in the top and bottom of screen.

Pros: Extremely sharp picture, no annoying reflections from background light, absolutely no ghosting/input lag/tearing in video games (CS:S, BF2, DoD, Crysis to name a few), No dead pixels, Sexy design, 1 day shipping from Newegg :)....and I love how it has the sticker on the top right corner that says 2 MS and 8000:1 contrast ratio....thats just bragging rights!!!!!

Cons: I am 100% satisfied...the only problem I had was a short DVI cable, but who cares, I used an old one. I have previously owned a 19"" viewsonic VX-927 @3ms, a 22"" dell @ 5ms, and a 24"" acer @ 6ms. Let me just say from a gamer's point of view, that this samsung LCD puts them ALL to shame.

Other Thoughts: If you are a serious gamer, like me, and you are in the market for an LCD then DO NOT hesitate and buy this one. It is absolutely a delight to be able to see everything so sharply on the screen and to be able to make incredible shots due to your silky smooth screen. My specs: Quad core q9450 3.6 ghz, 9800gtx ssc, 4 gigs ram, vista ultimate 64.

When I bought this I was trying to decide between a Viewsonic and this one. I wanted a basic black and the Viewsonic had too much silver on it. Although it looks like a silver bar on the bottom of the Sammy it's actually a clear plastic one, which is very nice. It's got a blue power indicator that plays off the clear plastic below.

Resolution is great, had no problem with my new PC or laptop, switching between is a little bit of work since you have to press the source button located behind the clear plastic bar on the bottom.

I purchased the flex stand since the stock one is not height adjustable, which would have been nice. Also there is no USB key support on the monitor which I find very convenient on my office Dell, which that was available here.

Overall very happy and should be for years.

I looked at monitors for nearly a year before purchasing the 2253bw and tested many models in stores. Most displays seemed difficult to read across the entire surface or had rather unnatural color rendering, including the highly rated HP hardware. I mostly just wanted clear, crisp text at small font sizes anywhere on the screen.

This unit is very impressive and delivers a beautiful display in an attractive package. I used the DVI-I cable (that was included) and the default NVidia driver software operating under Windows Vista (matched to the native screen resolution). Similarly, the included stand works fine for me and the tilt adjustment is somewhat important for the best viewing experience. In my environment I have no issue with reflected light or edge bleed, the illumination seems adequately uniform across the entire surface, and there were no stuck pixels.

My only caveat would be that the `out of the box' display settings were pretty terrible (set to way too high intensity). It was necessary to fuss with the menu for a few minutes to get the best quality for my taste. I also made a mistake by trying to read and understand the instruction book - this is one of the rare cases where it is better to put aside the documentation and the included software - a beautiful result can then be achieved very quickly.

This is an outstanding product. Resolution is outstanding, especially when you use the DVI cable connection. Having the ability to have two windows side by side without having to ALT-TAB between windows is a big plus.

One thing to keep in mind is that when you connect the monitor for the first time, it will not immediately appear in the wide screen format. You must install the drivers and manually change the resolution. That information is not in the printed instructions.

Also, if you plan on viewing an HD DVD, make sure you have a HD DVD Player installed on your PC.

Other than that it is an outstanding product.
