Pros Great design and price. Clear picture.
Cons Buzzing sound at brightness less than 96%
Summary I hooked up this monitor to my macbook last night and at first it was great. No complaints. However, the screen was too bright for me and turned it down from 100%. Well, after about 96% brightness I started to notice a constant buzzing sound coming from the monitor. Turned it back up to 100% brightness and the buzzing stops. The buzzing is noticable below 96% brightness. I called Samsung support and they said the refresh rate should be set at 60Hz and resolution at 1680x1050, which it was. They couldn't solve the buzzing problem. I will return mine for a full refund because I'm not sure if this is a bad monitor or a known issue that consumers have to live with. It's too bad because otherwise it is a nice monitor.
Pros great for text
Cons can't adjust height, colors too saturated
Summary I've tried adjusting the monitor settings many times, but I still can't get the colors right. Colors are over-saturated and skin tones are too red.
I've also read that the 3000:1 contrast ratio is "dynamic" and the 2ms is grey-to-grey... in other words, don't be too impressed by the numbers on the box. There's still a very big difference in picture quality between this monitor and a CRT.
Pros Bright, crisp, HDCP support
Cons no height adjustments, difficult to tilt
Summary Overall this is a good monitor. Everything is vivid and clean. A very small amount of back light bleeding along the bottom which you can only see when watching a letterbox movie. This is a tough monitor to beat.

Pros Wall mountable. Small footprint. Intuitive controls. Analog, DVI inputs. Perfect Picture.
Cons Monitor does not tilt. Flashing blue "beacon" power light when monitor is in Standby.
Summary Absolute perfection. Installed monitor on an older system with a 32MB video card that was kaput......1 GeForce 6200 later...WOW!!!
Pros Crisp display and bright.
Cons When the screen has mostly dark colors, the monitors will dim slighly - I'm guessing to conserve power. It doesn't effect games though.
Summary Great in a dual monitor configuration. When the screen has mostly dark colors, the monitors will dim slighly - I'm guessing to conserve power. It doesn't effect games though. They are LCD monitor arm compatible as well. I'm getting ready to mount them, but make sure you get an LCD monitor arm that can handle the weight of at least 12 lbs. The tilts up and down and goes left to right. Other poeple are complaining about the colors, but like with any monitor, you should adjust them appropriately. I haven't had the need to do so yet the auto adjust works great.
