I spent a long time looking at this item and reading all the reviews, from different websites too, so I will list some things I saw and what I discovered.
Please note, in all of the following I have not used this screen as a TV.
I bought it for the purpose of a big computer monitor and a screen for my PS3, so other peoples opinions may be different when using it as a TV.
First off, I saw one review (on another website i think) that said this model didn't have speakers. Well it has.
Alot of people have meantioned the sound quality, when I loaded a PS3 Game (COD5 if it matters) I didn't notice it at first, until I started a game and it did sound quite a bit 'tinny' however, I played for about an hour and I completely forgot about the 'bad' sound quality, so yes, its very tinny and there's no bass to it, but it is clear and it didn't annoy me, so I'm happy with that.
2. 1080p. When running the PS3 through the HDMI, this screen DOES run in 1080p mode, so the people who say 'that can't happen' well it does. My other TV runs at 1080i and will not display anything if the PS3 tries to run at 1080p. So I can confirm that this unit runs at 1080p, the picture quality is very, very good. I'm used to playing on a 37" TV, and I got used to this 22" screen very quick, and I have problems seeing detail on other peoples TV's sometimes.
When running as a computer monitor it runs at the maximum resolution advertised, the picture is very, very crisp and clear, and I couldn't be happier with the way it looks. the screen is big enough to run 2 applications side by side, which is what I need it for when running as a pc.Read more ›
The input alternatives are great and the DTV is sharp and crisp. Works well with vista following a few tweaks.
If you are worried about the sound then use the money saved buying this TV to invest in a pair of speakers but really its not THAT bad!
I'd also say doin't worry about the stand. Mine sits on a dedicated shelf and because i have a wireless keyboard it does no wobble when i type. Unless there is an earthquake or i'm are cleaning it then it won't move at all!
The free delivery from Amazon only took 2 days. Ordered Monday lunch. Arrived Thursday Morning so can't complain on that either.
Overall very happy.
I was struggling to find a single unit around this size that would double up as both a TV, PS3 screen and PC monitor. 720p from a monitor of this size isn't really a high enough resolution.
Taking my chances as this was the only real contender I've been nothing but impressed. Plenty of input and output options. Brilliant image quality for both TV and computer use. The tuner is excellent and all the menus are easy to use. The TV guide is one of the best i've used personally (panasonic, sony, phillips). The only features that I miss in a telly are a timer (unless I havn't found it) and the little now/next bar that some TV's have along the bottom. From what I can tell the only way to see whats on is to go into the full guide. However the channel your watching does stay on with both audio & video.
Sound quality is also good from such small speakers. When buying I expected to permanently use my 2.1 PC system but so far haven't seen the need.
Sometimes the image from the freeview tuner can look a little blocky up close (1m ish back) but move back to a more sensible TV viewing position (2m plus) and I can't notice it.
All in all highly recommended.
I bought this monitor to watch TV on and play games on, as soon as it came down in price and what a bargain it was. Looks good, works brilliant and an asset in whichever room you have it in. I bought for my daughter to play with her wii or playstation and for watching dvd's. But it soon got put into my room and the picture is outstanding.
I have since bought her a bigger one...but this one stays in my room....
I have a huge Samsung in my living room and have had it about 7 years now and it still looks as good now as when I first bought it....
Awesome products by a Top notch name and good prices too.
For my Xbox360, connected using component cables, the image quality was very good. The sound was acceptable. If that was the only reason I bought it I would have been happy.
The big problem is that when used as a monitor (using DVI or PC/VGA) the internal speakers started buzzing/whistling. The advice on Samsung's website about straightening the cables and adjusting the brightness did not solve this.
The interference disappeared when muting or switching to external speakers. Neither are acceptable since the sound from the computer was being sent through the monitor so I didn't have to buy external audio equipment!
Since this was meant to be used primarily as a computer screen (without external speakers) this meant it was useless for me. I'm not sure if it was a duff unit or a design flaw but it was returned.
As well as the fault, the other annoyances include:
* Not native 1080p resolution but 1680x1050. HD trailers needed scaling down to watch.
* 16:10 ratio not 16:9 so black borders on DVDs
* As other reviews have said, the stand is limited to tilting back and forth.
* The gloss effect on the case is distracting and attracts smudges.
* I almost missed the power button since it looks just like a sticker. The side buttons are nice, clunky and easy to find.
* Remote is ugly. Clearly the remote was designed by another team from the TV, which is pretty nice.
* Lots of disabled menu options to clutter up the interface.
I would say this is good value for money but not great. I never tried it as a TV but it was good for the Xbox360.
