Wow no replies? I bought my 2053BW in May for $220+tx. Anyway both units have the exact same specs even the same native resolution, wonder if power consumption is the same?

I'm running the same monitor, but the only setup I did was the Samsung standard of dropping the brightness down from 100% to about 40. :)

I pretty much stick with the controls on the monitor itself, that way no matter how many times I format or do whatever it will pretty much always be how I like it. I found this site (LCD monitor test images) to be invaluable and about the best one I've seen so far.

I'd like to hear some people on this. I just picked one up a few weeks ago, Friend of mine was telling be about "setting it up" which I will be doing on the 31st when I see him at a LAN. Any updates in the mean time would help.

I have the same monitor. I installed it with the Catalyst Drivers for Vista 64-Bit. You really don't need any special setup for normal use. However if your games need it, or in my case if you are doing photo editing yes. I have Pantone's Huey - its easy to use and not very expensive. It will check your ambient room light and calibrate your monitor with its supplied Sensor.
