It should be a great monitor. Thats pretty pricey for a 19" monitor though. I just ordered this 22" last night for $219 shipped. Granted it has a 700:1 contrast ratio and 5ms responce time. Check it out its a great deal.

0v3rc10cl0ck3d, yeah, it looks exactly the same as that...

I wouldn't say the quality of my screen is the best though. That 800:1 might be slightly better due to it maybe having a better LCD panel within it, if its around the same price that is.
Apparently, the version I got had quite a lot of revisions. I think I got the first revision, which is inferior to the later ones.

Yes, supposedly. Don't just judge your decision on that though. There are other factors in an LCD monitor you need to consider.

Yeah, for a 3000:1 contrast, I expected more black.
I have got a bit of light bleeding at the bottom but not much to notice when stuffs on.
I'm happy with the monitor, and its better than the other one, but I expected more, thats all.

Samsung are a good make though. You just have to do your research to make sure your getting a good revision of the monitor in question.

yo if u get a widescreen monitor, i suggest u get an HDCP monitor, therefore, in the future, u can use it for home media stuff like HD-DVD/Blu-Ray players and PS3 and cable boxes and stuff in HD
