I purchased this product to replace a seven year old 14" LCD television that i use on my kitchen countertop. Not only does this up-size my screen size significantly, but it still--just barely--fits between the counter and the upper cabinets while on its standard tabletop pedestal. But this television's location is right next to where I usually park with my notebook computer when I am working at home. This monitor makes it easy for me to extend my Windows desktop onto a 23" second monitor, which is similar to what I have configured in my office. This is great when working with multiple windows, but it is also great if I want to watch an HD movie in full screen on Netflix while working on my computer on the built-in monitor. For having been sold as a reconditioned product, it was indistinguishable from brand new. There were no manuals, but physical condition was perfect, and there are no dead pixels. Picture quality appears very good, and audio quality is perfectly decent for built-in speakers.
I LOVE Samsung products. I have everything from my phone to my refrigerator that is Samsung! I haven't had issues with any of the items I've purchased from Legendmicro or Samsung. They are both the best!
This is the second monitor that I received. The original was defective with a vertical line of pixels that went about half up the screen near the middle. The new one looks good and seems to be working fine. I have only had it for 1 day so far but both the VGA and HDMI connections are working great.
I'm very happy with the Refurb'd monitor. Several times when I have bought refurbed devices it appears they just throw them in a box scratched and filty and mail them to you Not so with this, it looked new and was easy to set up. Yes, I am happy.
this monitor is wonderful - i needed the HDMI capability for use as a second monitor without any extra hassle. i plugged it in and instant compatibility.
the only downside i see to this monitor is that it doesn't have holes in the back to screw it onto a bracket. Its very light so it could probably be held up with toothfloss but still no abilty to use anything but the stand provided with it.
but still an awesome monitor... the buttonless buttons are amazing.
Monitor delivers less than crisp images and trying to adjust it's settings is not intuitive. I had to work at getting the correct resolution set. Still it is giving me the kind of image I had hoped for.
The unit itself looks and works like new. The only difference is that it did not come with any instructions either written or on a cd. A new unit is supposed to come with a printed installation manual and a user manual on cd. However, you can download the user manual from the Samsung site.
The unit itself has nice, clear resolution, and easily hooked up with XP automatically. The only adjustment we had to make was to change the full screen stretched display to regular rectangular size.
