What problems exactly, mate? Last time I owned a Samsung, it was 17 inch CRT. It was good, worked flawlessly for like 4 years. So I am a bit more inclined towards Samsung. But yeah, the Asus one is good! I have to check my local prices though.
Oh, where to start. Power button worked 1 out of 500 times. Menu buttons like to turn on when they feel like it, and good luck making any adjustments, the buttons are so unresponsive, and when you do a get a selection, 99% of the time it will select something different. The back I/O panel pressed into the monitor, if you try to plug any cable in, it will bend and press into the monitor. It just felt really flimsy and cheaply made.
