When I received it set-up was a breeze; unpack, connect and plug-in. When it was turned on for the first time I have to say I was in complete awe for several minutes. Going from a 6 year old 15" Sylvania to this beauty was long over due.
What I like most about this monitor besides the size, is it's crisp picture and vibrant colors. No more eye strain while working for hours on spreadsheets and photos, movies and videos look great.
There is one major downfall to this monitor, which will definitely be a deal breaker for some people. It is lacking an HDMI input and this is disappointing especially coming from Samsung, but for me since this was a work monitor it didn't have any effect on my decision. Additionally the monitor does not swivel left to right, it only adjusts up and down.
Other items worth noting are the touch display buttons that glow red when in use, but don't show up otherwise and I didn't know if I'd like the "touch of red" on the monitor frame, but it looks really nice in person.
*I uploaded one of the pictures I took of the monitor into the customer images.

The Samsung P2250 widescreen LCD monitor gives you a premium monitor at an accessible price. Its Touch of Color cabinet features a stunning rose-black gradation reminiscent of a fading sunset, while a thin, graceful neck adds elegance. Touch-sensitive OSD (On Screen Display) control buttons add another level of refinement. Dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1 gives you tremendous detail, while 2 ms (G to G) response time gives you razor-sharp motion graphics along with 1,920 x 1,080 full HD resolution . It’s beauty within budget.
