3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great picture, color and size. Thin. Good eco options.

Cons: Sometimes there is a vertical line of pixilation going down the center of the screen. They only way to get rid of it is to turn the monitor off and back on. Changing cables didn't help. Samsung customer support is bad.

5 out of 5 eggsapology and correction

Pros: This review is an apology to Bob Tpain. I did more research and did indeed find on this site the Asus monitor model VG278HE that does have the 144 Hz. refresh rate. I have no issue admitting I was wrong. And thusly apologize for my previous comment.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It took me a bit to find the Asus monitor though since the search options do not list an option for a refresh rate of higher than 120 Hz. But I kept looking and came back to admit I was wrong. Still wont buy it though. My loyalties lie with Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG S27A950D Black 27"

Pros: Beautiful picture, 3D functionality is very cool, COD3 very crisp, Battlefield 3 in 3D is awesome, 2D to 3D conversion
is almost as good as a movie made in 3D, AutoCAD w/ 3D structural package is great as well

Cons: About $100 more than comparable models, only capable od 120hz refresh rate

Other Thoughts: It took me a while to choose this one over the 27" ASUS 3D monitor with 144hz refresh rate. I just felt better since i've never had any trouble with my Samsung flat screen tv's

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Everything...

Cons: Price...

Other Thoughts: It is the best monitor I have had in years. Been upgrading every year or so and seem to me I won't need to upgrade this one for a long time to come. Great buy must have for gaming...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor and image quality

Pros: Great image quality, great 3D support on games with Tridef or using AMD HD3D. Mass Effect 3 was stunning and Dirt 3 looks okay. Great 120Hz smoothness and awesome contrast/brightness ratio, very thin, it weights moderately, runs cold and has an external power brick and support for DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

Cons: Glossy screen might be an issue, some minor crosstalk with glasses, the stand it isn't firm enough and may wobble a bit and can't be adjusted at all except if you tilt it up and down (20 degrees may be). Default calibration leaves a lot to be desired, glasses are ugly and can't be recharged, minor backlight bleeding around the edges, plus it isn't compatible with nVidia 3D technology.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is one of the TN panel based monitors with the best image quality in the market, I barely noticed a difference in image quality compared to my HP LP1965 which uses P-MVA panel. Im overall sattisfied with this monitor and responsiveness with no lag even in 3D. Its a bit expensive but you will love its image clarity, great 3D performance and smooth 120Hz image, its a dream of a monitor which makes a perfect match with Radeon HD hardware. If you want to use nVidia, I recommend you something else.

1 out of 5 eggsMonitor Okay, Support Terrible

Pros: It's a very thin and bright monitor with a 120Hz refresh rate for 2D graphics.

Also capable of doing 3D at 1080p 60Hz per eye via DisplayPort cable on AMD cards.

Cons: I mainly got this monitor for the 120Hz 2D capabilities and I realize 3D was mainly just a bonus, but I received glasses that clearly do not work or are not made for this monitor. When I pay such a price for a item, I expect all aspects of it to be working as intended.

The glasses I received are what many claim them to be, "SSG-M3050GB." These glasses produce terrible crosstalk / ghosting and I have repeatedly attempted to contact Samsung to at least send or replace them with the, "SSG-M3150." Each time all they do is keep sending one nonsense email after another with another step to do.

After eight days of consecutive emails and multiple things they keep saying is the, "last step", it's pretty clear all the CS reps jobs are to just string people along until they give up.

After trying to get somewhere via live chat and phone I still have little hope they will send me the glasses.

Other Thoughts: Decent monitor, but if you expect all aspects of it to be working as intended you may be let down. Trying to deal with Samsung support is like trying to break down a brick wall bare hands tied behind your back.

I would have given this monitor at least a three id they would send me glasses that actually work, but based on the CS I have been receiving, it doesn't even deserve that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 120HZ Monitor

Pros: Where to start? This monitor is awesome. It is extremely vivid. Colors are spot on. Screen is bright! At max value might cause eye bleed because the whites are like bleach. After minor calibration of gamma (mode 3) and reducing brightness value I got the perfect gaming image. No input lag. No frame lag/ghosting. Screen itself is very thin with little heat. Backlight had little-to-no bleed unlike others (maybe they fixed it going forward or I got lucky unity). 120HZ makes everything insanely smooth. Just moving mouse around on desktop feels like you got a new 20k DPI mouse. Also glossy screen is great, just make sure you can block out all light from the room.

Cons: Blacks are not as dark as I would have wanted but still close. Adjusting settings can get you a great image where it doesn't seem grey at all but next to a dark-IPS monitor you may notice it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor for the 120HZ, not 3D. I upgraded from a 24" BenQ. Playing BF3 is like playing a new game. Doing 180 degree turns and not feeling confused where I am looking. Everything is just SMOOTH.

5 out of 5 eggsClean, Stylish

Pros: Very clear image and better than passable color reproduction. In a few weeks of regular use I have yet to notice any distortion or defects.

Double the standard refresh rate and a fast response time make motion look liquid-smooth. In comparison my older and more typical monitor is downright choppy.

Size. 27" is perfect from about three feet away; it fills my peripheral vision almost completely. 1920x1080 is a native resolution used by smaller monitors, but it still produces extremely fine-looking details at these dimensions.

In addition, the soft white indicator lights aren't distracting and don't illuminate darkened rooms. There's no annoying splash screen on boot, and the menu system is fairly easy to use. Every line on this thing is clean and sharp, plus the thin bezel around the screen itself gives it an extra-large appearance. It really stands out.

Cons: First, the glossy screen does provide me with some of my own reflection. It takes some pretty bright lighting to make it really noticeable, but it's there. The black plastic bits are also pretty good dust-magnets.

Second, the stand is tilt-adjustable only and the screen sits a bit higher on my desk than I'm used to. There's also no sign of a wall-mount system, and seeing that the base houses the electronics I doubt there will ever be one.

Third, of course, is price.

Other Thoughts: I'm really hoping to get quite a few years out of this monitor and at this point I'm very well satisfied with its performance. Like others I bought it for the high refresh rate rather than the 3D functionality, so I can't really comment on it. Still, it feels like it could've been had at a much lower cost without the glasses and nVidia's licensing on the side.
