I bought this monitor to replace my 19\u201D flat screen I\u2019ve been using for years. I teach college online and spend a lot of time on SKYPE and VSee for student conferences and friends.\nI was looking for either a new Tablet, Smart Phone or Monitor for my Christmas present to me when I say this on Walmart.com.\nThe color, setup and hookup couldn\u2019t be any easier. It came with both SVGA and DVI cables and I have it connected as DVI. This is the first DVI monitor I\u2019ve owned. The setup CD (with manual) was a snap. Plus, it\u2019s LG. It\u2019s right at home with my Refrigerator, Washer and Smart Phone.\nI\u2019d recommend this product to family and even friends.
This 24'' monitor from Samsung sports a vibrant 1080p display and two input ports (traditional VGA and HDMI). The audio feed from HDMI can be output with a headphone jack on the back, though you may need a few additional cables beyond the included VGA cable to get the best audio and visual experience out of the new monitor.\n\nThe monitor has one button menu access and volume control meaning a single button hidden just under the Samsung logo on the front of the screen does everything for you. It takes a bit of practice but is simple to use and unobtrusive. The monitor also automatically detects connection types which makes connecting it to a computer or laptop a breeze. At under $200, this screen is a terrific value. It's one major flaw is that it only includes one HDMI input port so if you have multiple devices or are looking for a television replacement, you may need to invest in additional cables to use this screen as a one-size-fits-all device.\n\nThe black finish takes prints and dust easily but looks good if you keep it clean and it sits high off the base with excellent tilt options and natural viewing angles. Samsung delivers again on a computer monitor and provides excellent value with this display. It's amazing that 1080p displays are easily available in the sub-$200 range now.
Works great with Windows 8. I had my doubts about the adjustable stand but its good and sturdy and adjust easily. The touch keyboard is good but not comfortable to type on for an extended period of time so buy yourself a cheap keyboard too. The touch functionality synced right up with no issues.
I spend hours on end at the computer nearly everyday. So I need a monitor that has the best resolution that I can get. I had a tube type Professional Viewsonic for many years, but it gave out. Now I was forced to go with a flat panel monitor. I tried four in all. And everyone except this monitor had \"pixilliated\" text. Fuzzy text.\nI saw a You Tube video from NCIX in Canada. He did an unboxing of this monitor and he said \"This could be, No he said this is the best monitor I have seen. The resolution is twice of most monitors.\n2,560 x 1,440 , He owns the company and has access to any product. He said this is far better than my 30\" monitor.\nWell I can attest this is well worth the money. If you want a professional grade monitor, this is it.\nHere is a test that I did as soon as I got to you Tube. I turned the video to HD and I could see each hair in the person's eye brows, every hair on their head. That is if they record in higher definition.\nMovies, anything looks fantastic if it is recorded well.\nYou will not find a better monitor unless you are willing to spend thousands for a CRT monitor, again for professionals.
Computer working to expectations - the only problem was with the Windows 7 cd - when installed I discovered that there was something like 400 updates to do ??????? Better up to date versions of Windows 7 would be appreciated.
