I took a gamble on this monitor as most reviews I've read said they have very bad backlight bleed and the same thing was echoed my most owners on various forums. The one I got has just a very slight BLB, definitely not bad enough to return it and I'm quite picky about my monitors.
Gotta love the 16:10 resolution. Fast paced games work well and are crisp and clear with very little ghosting at least to me (depending on monitor settings) though my previous monitor was quite old so maybe I'm just used to it now but it should be fine for the casual gamer (I play World of Tanks and some Call of Duty MW3 type games).
Amazon states that this is a TN monitor but it is not, it is a relatively new technology developed by Samsung called PLS which is why it has such good viewing angles and colours. Also, the screen is semi-gloss which is a good compromise between glossy and the aggressive AG coating (yuck!) like Dell and LG apply to their monitors. It's easy on the eyes, whites are white and colours are decent but will look much better after calibration.
The package accessories are very spartan just the manual, drivers, power adaptor and plug and a VGA cable ... like anyone uses that anymore. Seems Samsung could have at least included a DVI and even DisplayPort cables seeing as it's such a new monitor.
Only giving 4 stars due to the very spartan package contents and slight backlight bleed.
That's all I have to say. I'm very happy with the monitor over all my only caution would be to write the seller before buying to make sure you can return the monitor should it have bad backlight bleed and make sure that you can get refunded for the return shipping.
