"Agreed: CNET you've gone too far this time.`"4.5 starson by tfcolligan
Pros: Absolutely superb graphics, excellent for video / photo work, fine reading, name it.
Cons: Stand issues. Needs more flexibility / maneuverability.
Summary: The answer to expensive Hi-Def is right here, folks. If you like to watch video on your monitor, prepare to be dazzled. Add the HDMI cable and it's "hog heaven". I have an LG in one room, and now this one for my secondary workstation. Both manufacturers are amazing performers. I can't tell which I like better. Price dictated my selection this time around, though. This little Samsung is outstanding. I do a lot of writing and as a hobby work with photos and video. I could not be happier in a 22". Add Samsung's Warranty and you've got yourself perhaps the very best value and quality out there. No exaggeration. Go to the store and see for yourself.
I grow a little bit annoyed at some of the CNET technical reviews. I am detecting a hint of bias. But there is value to be had in that bias, folks. CNET trashes something and the prices drop. Winner: consumers! Yippeee! Seriously, though, CNET you were a bit harsh on this one. Love you guys though.
