Summary Not only has Samsung not honored the rebate promised, but the power supply fried the monitor the minute it was installed!! Samsung honored their warranty and repaired the monitor. But when I went to the repair shop to pick up my monitor, I saw many Samsung 150's and 170's there for the same problem. The repair guys told me that this monitor is of poor quality. I regret buying the monitor as I wait for this problem to most probably happen again and I have never had this problem with anything electronic in my house; ever. As for the TV-tuner, I was disappointed at the grainy picture. For the amount of money I paid, I really expected more from Samsung. Let's be honest, when one thinks of a good monitor the name Samsung does not come to mind. The only reason I purchased this monitor was that it was the only one (at the time) with the numerous inputs. I was willing to sacrifice name brand for features. The only reason Samsung can justify it’s cost is due to it’s TV tuner and RCA inputs. Now knowing the problems with the power supply and TV-tuner quality and doing a cost analysis, I would not recommend this monitor or name brand to someone looking for a sharp-crisp picture producing monitor and/or a PC TV-Tuner.

Pros Multiple inputs, picture -in- picture, remote, flat panel
Cons Picture image quality could be better
Summary This is an amazing monitor for tight space. You can mount it anywhere or just sit it on the desk.
The inputs are truely amazing. I have everything connected to it. My computer, VCR, DVD, Camcorder, Super Nintendo, you name it!
The PIP (Picture in Picture) is fun. You can choose from 2 sizes, position the picture anywhere on your screen and the monitor will remember the settings, even if you unplug it.
The picture quality is not as sharp as my Sony WEGA, but for an all-in-one, it's very good.
I highly recommend this product.
Summary I had to pick up a tft-lcd quick and nabbed this guy at best buy with the $100 rebate, tossing the price tag under 5 bills. But once I got it hooked up I was amazed. I didn't need my USB tv wonder anymore and I can just sit back and relax and enjoy watching tv, then switch back to the pc to do work. Or... I could do work while watching tv in PIP. It's rediculous. Takes up no space, weighs practically nothing (10lbs+), and you can connect RGB, Coxial, S-Video, vid/aud in, and an audio out. In PC mode, you can PIP either inputs and position it anywhere. The remote control just spoils me =) The auto correct feature is a great feature. PC view, it's clear and bright, had it connected to a desktop and docking station for a laptop. TV full screen comes out a bit jagged, but it's nothing horrible (using coxial) could probably use finer filters. I've yet to try s-video. I plan on hanging this on my wall while having everything connected to it. But for now, I gave it to my college bound sis who needs it b/c of lack of deskspace for a CRT and room for a tv.
Summary monitor and also use it your tv.
