Summary: Glorious! Super bright, sharp, no bleed, tiny bezel, awesome UI and touch sensitive control! True 120hz 1080 HD. Have watched a few movies in 3d and played need for speed most wanted a bit, but to be honest 3D is still pretty bad overall, it wont be any good for at least a few more years. But as a 120hz HD screen this baby is the king. I'm so happy that my 2 months of researching lead me to this monitor.
Summary: Forget the 60Hz displays; go for 120Hz! Even your mouse moves on the desktop seems smoother. 3D gaming takes on a new dimensions. 2D => 3D real time conversion is not perfect but does give depth to most pictures, movies and games - even Windows desktop seems 3Dish.
Summary: After lots of search for 3D monitor at reasonable price with good viewing experience, I settled for this product and I am happy to say that this is one of the best monitor you can get in that price. I really can't think of any other product with that specification in that range with stunning looks and excellent performance.
Summary: Were I able to test the 3D properly I might change my mind, but if you are looking to buy this and have an Nvidia card from the GTX6XX series that have DisplayPort, don't bother!! This screen does NOT work with 3Dvision and any other 3D driver also doesn't work with anything except side-by-side 3D, so you will not be getting 1080p 3D from this couple with Nvidia cards.
Excellent Monitor (Provided you fit the criteria).

Summary: To give this opinion some context, I'm gamer/programmer and my priorities were firmly centred around getting a 120hz monitor with low input lag and a good response rate. It was a close run race between this and the BenQ XL2420T, but Amazon dropped the price on this monitor and my previous experiences with Samsung won out.
Summary: Bought for my gaming setup, this is the first affordable 120hz fullhd monitor with DP, this is important because the HDMI standard not allow the fullhd 120hz image, ist too slow for that (HDMI: 1080p @ 30/30fps OR 720p @ 60/60fps). So if you want to use at proper way you need a DP input (all modern Gcard has at last one). Full review will done if AMD rolls out the 7800 and the 7700 Gcards, but its defiantly a five star buy, if you catch a lower price (mine was 292).
Summary: Having tested this monitor and its 27" cousins extensively it is clear that there is a lot to like. The image is far from ideal out of the box but with a few simple tweaks (such as changing 'MagicAngle' to 'Group View') the image becomes rich, full and vibrant. The 'Ultra Clear Panel' screen surface makes a huge difference from your average matte antiglare surface as the light is emitted from the monitor directly without diffusion.
Summary: This is an attempt at highlighting some important points (good and bad) about this monitor. Firstly, the monitor DOES NOT support a 120Hz refresh rate when connected via HDMI (even HDMI 1.4), as evidenced in the Specifications section of the Samsung user manual (see Samsung's site). Via HDMI, the monitor will support 60Hz only. ***You MUST use DisplayPort to achieve the 120Hz refresh rate or even full (dual 60Hz) HD 3D!
