The only way this monitor displays a corner to corner image that measures 23.5 inches which it advertises -is in the 'Full' mode which stretches the image left to right leaving you with ovals for 'circles' and rectangles for 'squares' In other words badly distorting the picture. This is regardless of the resolution. Set at what the manual says is it 'native' resolution of 1920X1080 gives you and image that 'rolls' from side to side and up and down but still with a one inch black border on each side vertically. The viewable space without 'stretching the image in full is a 21.5 inch diagonal measure with the black side bars - in other words a 22 class wide screen with extra real estate on each side if you don't stretch it. The viewable area is 11 5/8 inches high by 20 1/2 inches wide - that is NOT a 16:9 ratio. When it is in it's natural mode the image on the screen is still the full 11 5/8 high but only 18 3/8 inches wide giving you the 16:9 ratio with vertical borders. So if you don't want your images (especially photos!) distorted then it is better to just get a 22 inch or a real 24 inch monitor. I am amazed that there are no other reviews anywhere - it has been on sale for 2 months. Samsung's website doesn't list it when you have to use the drop down menu to name you product to ask a question - the terrible instructions say nothing about it. the images quality is fine except for the extra real estate. I am returning mine and going ahead and getting a 22 inch monitor in the right size package or a real 24 inch.

I was excited when i bought this one. 23.6'' wide with 1920*1080 resolution. Did not like the picture quality though. Not bad to use in a work station computer. Little price though can get better monitor at this price. I hope it will last long enough. Read More
