    Anyone have any first hand experience or impressions of this display?

    Look stunning. I've been thinking about a replacement for my super old 20" ACD and, while it would be nice to stick within the Apple hardware ecosystem, the only display they make that would be a true upgrade that's remotely within my price bracket would be either a used 24 ACD or a really good deal on a 27 ACD. Both of these have glass panels and I *HATE* glare and reflections, so I think those are out of the question.

    I've said I would never buy a SAMSUNG product again, but this display may make me change my mind. It's elegant and clean looking, it's a nice size, and it's matte.

    My only reservation about it would be the stand and it's stability. My desk isn't wobbly, but I don't like display wobble, either.

    Hopefully I can see one of these in person at Microcenter sometime soon, and I'll this thread know my impressions of it if I do.

    I would try do do some work with one before buying. Curved may make sense for motion like TV, but documents may be a different story. I have no doubt that you would get used to it -- the brain is very adaptive - but I suspect that whenever you look at anything else it will look odd.

    I got a new Samsung display. The product quality and customer support are bad.

    If you're looking for a curved monitor, maybe consider a 32" display?

    I don't have a curved display (although I do have a 27").

    I've read posts from others that they can "distort" images when one is trying to do photo editing, etc.

    Whether this matters to you or not is... well... it's up to you.
