I purchased this monitor based on wanting to give widescreen a go on my PC, having always used a 4:3 aspect monitor in the past. Generally I'm pretty pleased with this Samsung model.
It's easy to set-up and looks great on the desk, it has a glossy black surround and a curvy, thin pedestal. A 50,0000:1 contrast ratio is boasted and it mostly delivers, dark areas are fine, although by default it is quite bright otherwise and it has taken some considerable tinkering with settings to get the brightness and contrast at the right level for faithful colour reproduction.
DVI is missing, which is a real shame as it seems odd having VGA-only on a brand new monitor, especially when I now have to use a dongle on my DVI-only graphics card to connect it (my previous monitor was DVI). The resolution is also a little low, however the screen area is a factor in that and as my space is limited, anything bigger than 19" was out of the question. I think it's important to bear in mind that this screen is cheap and I think it's good for the money overall.
If you haven't used a widescreen monitor before, I've found it an easy transition owing to the fact every other screen I use from TV down to iPod is widescreen. Gaming especially gets a lot out of it, and the monitor has a good response time, so no problems there.
If you're looking for a good-looking new display, I think this is well worth considering.
