Anyone have any experience using the Samsung SyncMaster 305T LCD Monitor. I have the opportunity to buy a used one today for $150 which seems like a killer deal for a 30" 2560*1600 monitor.

Yep I have as I have had one for approx 4 years. I love it. The screen is huge (as one would expect). I have not had any problems with mine at all. There is a bit of ghosting in fast moving scenes. But not enough that it bothers me at all, I actually have to stop playing the game and try to look to see any of it. The colour reproduction is good, i have never had any issues with that.

Not with the specific type but my bro has 2 SyncMasters.
Good quality, at least those 2.
