I am very impressed with the size resolution and clarity of this display. I tried both the VGA (analog) and HDMI inputs and found the HDMI to be clearer. Fortunately HDMI cables are now much cheaper than a few years ago. And, many computers have HDMI outputs now. Even down-scaled in resolution, the display still looked very good. Of course, it looks best at its native resolution.
There are only two minor negatives that kept me from assigning 5 stars:
(1) I am not too fond of the separate DC power supply - fortunately it comes with an AC cable so it doesn't hog the outlets like a "wall wart" plug-in DC supply. It would be somewhat neater from a cabling perspective if this monitor plugged directly into the AC power.
(2) I would have liked a DVI input. More older computers have DVI connectors than HDMI and the DVI cable has screw-on locking lugs so the cable won't pull lose. This is a very minor issue because there are cable adapters to convert DVI and HDMI to each other.
In short, the monitor presents a beautiful, flawless computer screen. I also like the aesthetics -- the basically black color has a faint rich brown-red hue that goes perfectly on a wooden desk, but would be hardly noticeable in other settings -- nicely subtle.
In spite of the screen's not being a glassy reflective surface, the window behind my husband's chair was allowing a bit of glare on part of the screen, but turning it just a little got rid of that problem--which, to be fair, was a problem any type of screen would have, if it were facing a bright window.
The only thing we would change, if we could, is to make the plastic frame around the screen and its pedestal not such a shiny black. It is like a dust magnet and shows every mote!
Be aware that this monitor's light tends to the cold part of the spectrum. My husband is using it side-by-side with an older one (for a PC still running Windows XP) that has a yellowish tone to its light, so it took several adjustments before he got the brightness of the two to match in a way that didn't bother his eyes as he switched back and forth.
Anyway, the bottom line is that we would buy this model again, if the need should arise. Very satisfied with the price and the product.
Wow; my old monitor nothing compared to this baby. Clear and Bright. Did I say very clear and bright screen? While it isn't much bigger than my HP was but it is evident. Colors are fantastic. No problems from the moment I hooked it up.
So, others have commented that they were unhappy that the device did not come with a standard HDMI cable, and I suppose that is an issue to quibble about. But, overall, the value is there. It was shipped promptly and came in two days; Amazon reliability.
I wish I had done this earlier.
Another issue is how letters appear on the Samsung: rough edged and pixelated. Graphics look fine, but anything text-based looks awful. Since I see no other complaints about the text issue, I assume it's also a Mac problem. I tried patching the issue when I first bought the monitor, but nothing worked. So if you're an Apple User, think twice before getting this monitor.
