Monitor has a beautiful red hue within its piano black case. The picture seems excellent and starts up without much calibration needed. Very intelligent surface touch controls available as well. I bought it refurbished but it seems great so far. My prior Viewsonic had a height adjustment that I found very useful. This one only has a tilt adjustment. It wasn't a big deal because I can put objects like magazines under the base to adjust the height.
Even tho' refurbished it looked like new. No dead pixels. As usual a great Samsung product. I am however a little disappointed in the resolution. I have a high resolution Dell 24" monitor and this monitor cannot compare at 1089P. Of course I knew this up front but still would have liked better performance with text characters. I do appreciate the matte screen.
I bought this monitor to replace my 22 inch 1080p LG monitor. The price is decent, and the picture is superb. I can feel it much larger than the 22 inch monitor. There is no dvi output. I had problem to use it to connect to my old computer with VGA port as one of dual monitors. The monitor didn't display in full 1080p mode, and there are drak area on each side. This made me to switch to a new computer. I use the HDMI port to connect to the HDMI port on the new computer's vga card. It is prefect now.
