If you were planning on using this for watching lots of movies I would not recommend it.

This isn't a big deal, but it can be a little distracting at times.

Good monitor with a couple of issues. Colors are very bright and graphics are clear and distinct. I was lucky and don't have any dead or stuck pixels. Love the 1920x1200 resolution. I wouldn't go with anything less because then you lose too much screen height in my opinion.

The case looks good. I can only see the red in very bright light, it looks black in normal use lighting. The plastic on the back of the case seems to be very thin, and feels kind of cheap. Probably to save on weight, and the monitor is very light for it's size. The stand and front of the case feel strong and sturdy enough though.

It swivels on the stand easily, but it takes a bit of work to change the viewing angle. I always feel like I am going to break it when trying to change the angle. The monitor does not have a height adjustment, and coming from a monitor that did I really miss this function.

The screen is recessed about a 1/4" in the case. The problem here is that since the screen is recessed and the surrounding plastic is highly reflective, icons located at the edge of the screen are reflected on the plastic. This isn't a big deal, but it can be a little distracting at times.

There is a fair amount of light bleed. On a black screen there is brightness around the edges of the screen. Again, not horrible, every LCD has some, but I expected a bit less for the price.

My biggest complaint is the viewing angle. The lower part of the screen is lighter than the top. Unless I lower my chair quite a bit or sit farther back (not an option if I need to type), I can't seem to get the monitor positioned so this is not an issue. I did not have this issue on my old Dell 20" LCD or my iMac.

For gaming I haven't had any issues.

Up until now, I've been gaming on an eMachine 19 inch LCD monitor, which I've been using for over 2 years. And to be honest, it's been a faithful little monitor with no dead pixels all this time.

However, I got tired of the 1440 x 900 resolution, which required scrolling down a lot to view web pages.

So, I bought the Samsung T240, which boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution on a comparitively monstrous 24" screen. Oh my, what a difference! I've been missing out on a lot.

But, if you do a lot of 3D gaming, beware that the T240, running in its native resolution, will require a beast of a video card to light up all those pixels at a decent framerate with all the game's bells and whistles on. I'm running an Intel Core2 Quad 6600 and a 9800GTX, and even with that nice system, I had to turn off the DirectX 10 setting in "Stalker: Clear Sky". The T240 has a total of nearly twice as many pixels as the typical 19" monitor, so it will require twice the video card power to get the same performance as what you were used to with a 19" monitor. Sure, you can still turn down the game's resolution to get the same performance, and the picture will stretch to fit. But to see your 3D games in all the glory this monitor prvides, you will require a hella video card.

On to quality:
Zero dead pixels out of the box.
Brilliant, bright picture. It looks stunning playing games and surfing the web. The image is crisp and vibrant. I'm loving this thing.

The only drawback is that, while playing a very dark game (like black as night), there is a fair amount of backlight bleed-through around all four edges. For me, this hasn't been a problem, since I don't need to display pure black that often.

PROS:
1.high quality build
2.beautiful "touch of color" exterior
3.hdmi connector
4.great onscreen color saturation
5.whole screen and stand easily turns side to side for optimum viewing
6.tilting screen up and down
7.solid stand
8.easy plug and play
9.many video options
10.vga, usb, and dvi cables included
11.great 3D gaming monitor with a low refresh rate
12.manufacturer's 3 years warranty a big plus
13.bigger is definitely better

CONS:
1.hard to see menu buttons on side of monitor
2.hard to reach hdmi and usb connectors on back of monitor
3.no height adjustments is not a big deal

NEUTRAL:
1.no built-in monitor speakers, would be nice to have
2.red led power light blinks when monitor is off, will annoy some
3.no component cable connector, would be nice to have
4.glossy finish prone to fingerprints, scratches, and scuffs
5.TN panel lacks angular visibility
6.worthless install cd, don't need it
7.edges reflect due to high gloss

8.0 out of 10 for overall. a good monitor producing stunning colors with an elegant exterior minus a few "bearable" annoying perks. if you ever decide to purchase this monitor, make sure you go into the menu and set the auto detect to "manual setting". if you don't, whenever you turn on/off monitor, the thing has to go thru all the monitor inputs before it "recognizes" that you have a dvi cable hooked up or whatever you have hooked up.
