Didn't find much info in the box for hooking up my new monitor. So I set it up, plugged it in, and turned it on. Everything worked perfectly. It even set the appropriate Screen Resolution for use with my Netbook, without any intervention by me. It couldn't have been easier, nor could it have displayed a better picture.
The only negative, and a small one, is that it doesn't have a stand to have it sit higher above the desktop.

Pros: perfect for special jobs
Cons: Did not meet expectations, useability features needed
The 21" Notebook Display is another bit of great engineering we have come to expect from SAMSUNG.
THE MOST COMMON FLAW
The flaw is so common, we consumers have also come to expect this, even from the best engineering houses. The mistake is delivering an otherwise excellent product without having given much thought to how the user will put the thing to daily use!! Hitachi people are masters at delivering useful products. With respect, every engineer and product manager should have a copy of the little, classic book, THE DESIGN OF ORDINARY THINGS. Those of you who have read the little book will know where I'm going here.
USE CASE. A HIGH-VALUE PROBLEM.
I spend a lot of interactive time with senior managers, usually under stress, working with complex ideas. I need to create a sense of trust and intimacy. It's a bit like a first date... the first few moments are critical.
I need a way to present material -- mostly concepts (with no eye candy), just a few very clear data graphs, and a lot of eye contact. PROJECTORS are for staff. Flip charts and hand-written notes... too old school, even for me.
What works best is a very plain monitor (the 21-inch Laptop Monitor is perfect). When I first started using this method, it was with a laptop hooked up to echo whatever I did on my laptop. Then there was an ordinary monitor (very heavy), and I have experimented with tablets and touch-sensitive devices... too distracting. For now, the Laptop Monitor plus a stack of yellow legal tablets (which is a prop... says to the senior executive, "we're working now."
EXTREME WORK-AROUNDS.
Problems with the Laptop Monitor: (1) No protective case, and one more thing to I have to lug around. Samsung should have thought of this. I found a case that's perfect to protect the device. This is handy and solves several problems -- I have the device+case over-night shipped to my hotel. Protection and not much "lugging." (2) I could not find a commercial sleeve for the device. My assistant found some material (used for repairing ocean diver's wet-suits, a section of "ballistic" fabric cut from an old suitcase, and a person who does commercial sewing. One week later... the best "sleeve" we could come up with. Problem (3) is the need for a more sturdy way to keep the device at the correct angle -- that's one I can't solve. Many times the executive wants me to just place the device flat on the table in front of him/her, then props it up 15-20 degrees.
NEED FOR THE PRODUCT. HOPE FOR VERSION 2.0
I hope my comments are taken in a way that is useful for you. There is a need for a non-tablet display. I have given a use case that shows how important this special purpose monitor is and how it can be made more helpful to the consumer.
Feel free to send me a pre-production version of your next version!!
Best Regards,

Pros: Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: concerned about how to pack it for travel
I really like this product, but I will say that I have not tried out a lot of other screens to go with my laptop.
The only issue I have with this screen is that it's specifically for my laptop, and so I would like to travel with it. How do I travel with a 21 inch screen where there is no particular carrying case or packing strategy? I am concerned it will break.
I would like to take the opportunity to suggest to Samsung designers that they could have something even better going on here if they design a laptop companion screen where a durable carrying or travel-packing idea is thought through, so it will fit in a suitcase or laptop briefcase or something else with no chance of being damaged, or perhaps with a handle if it is meant to be carried separately (but I think this option makes travel too cluttered).
I don't know that the screen would have to be smaller. Maybe this would depend in part on whether one is trying to fit it into any sort of specially-designed laptop carrying bag.
Anyway, I'm sure I don't have it figured out, but I just wanted to encourage some thinking about how we are to buy this and then travel with it so it's always part of our laptop setup.
Thanks for reading.

Although tech support providers are very helpful, this product is not up to par for Samsung. The monitor has terrible ghosting problem that is not resolved by installing the USB drivers either. Less than adequate product.
