This is my new LCD monitor, I bought this at a really good price. Even though, R thinks Samsung is crap because they have a really bad reputation on their products. Oh and because they are E.V.I.L. But this is no made in Korea, it's made in Mexico! So I'm not sure if it's much better??
On a positive note, it's so nice to have a flat screen and a 17" wide screen. I have been using either a 13" or 15" monitor forever. But nowadays, these monitors or anything techy are being sold at reasonable prices. My friend (the one who sold this to me) said that the 15" screens are going to disappear, they aren't even stocking them anymore.
