At the price of $105 this monitor is an ok deal but once again, you get what you pay for. This is my first experience with LCD backlit monitors so I cannot say if my experience is common to all monitors with this technology. Its hard to believe that what I'm seeing would be acceptable for television monitors though. The biggest complaint I have is with the vertical viewing angle which drives me nuts. At about 30" from the monitor your eyes must be nearly centered vertically to get a good picture. All that is needed is 6" up or down at this distance and the monitor gives a very harsh glare that severely washes out the image. I am not speaking of glare off the face of the monitor screen from external lighting but an internal glare that I have to assume is from the backlighting. To make matters worse, the monitor is shipped with the brightness turned up to 100%. Things improved a bit once I cranked that down to around 65% but only when viewed straight on, level with the centerline. Oddly this glare problem is not (as) noticeable in the horizontal plane (side-to-side). I am comparing this my Dell Ultrasharp monitors which use non-LED technology and are over 5 yrs old. The Dell is far superior in all aspects. The Samsung is gorgeous to look at and not a horrible monitor especially at the cost, but the glare problem is pretty annoying.
I am perfectly happy with this monitor. I'm a student so I don't have any special monitor needs, just a big, clean, nice, light screen and I have no complaints about this one. Th tilt works just fine and the setup is very easy. I had to buy an adapter though because I have a macbook, which doesn't have the required VGA port. I'm especially pleased with the price.
I purchased this montitor for my wife's uncle as a replacement. I did set it up him. I was impressed by the performance. The screen is sharp, the blacks are good and the price was very, very, reasonable.
