2 out of 5 eggsBeautiful When it wants to work!

Pros: Beautiful when used with Display Port and Radeon 7970 set at 1125 MHz Core and 1575 Memory with 1080P at 120 Hz.
No buttons it's touch spots and Beautiful Design
makes it look more like Art .
Newegg shipping was awesome had it in two days on the dot.

Cons: 3D is AWEFUL! Don't get it for 3D gaming not that you can anymore because it's a Deactivate item right after I bought the piece of junk!
Keeps on Shutting off at random times and I have to reach over and turn it back on before it goes though it's shut down Sequence.
The monitor had Two backlit LED's one for the left half and the other for the right, The left one goes out creating a very dark picture on that side and Randomly goes on and off.
I lost count on how many times I died or lose a game because of this junk! Don't use IF your playing a tournament for money!
Beautiful Design makes it too hard to line up three for Eye Infinity.

Other Thoughts: For what I paid for this I got junk in return! My Hanns G still works and is a bottom barrel monitor I got cheap, You don't get what you pay for in this case, I should have just whent with another Hanns G! Had it not been with the problems I'd rate this higher.Wish I had a time machine!

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic monitor, but the standard glasses need work

Pros: Extremely bright and beautiful display, 120hz is immensely fluid in 2D, and 3D movies are just gorgeous. The screen is more than bright enough to offset the decrease in brightness from the glasses and duplicated images.
Also with my last monitor, if I laid down in bed to watch Netflix, the angle made most movies hard to see any dark parts. This particular monitor works lovely at almost all angles from what I can see.

Cons: There is an immense amount of ghosting with the default glasses when playing games. After doing a lot of research, I decided to try out the newer pair that recently came out (Samsung SSG-3550CR 3D Rechargeable Active Glasses).

I can confirm at least with these SSG-3550CR glasses, the ghosting with gaming is almost nonexistent now, depending on your angle. You rarely notice it unless you're trying to spot it.

So, if you're getting this monitor for gaming, I HIGHLY recommend replacing the standard pair with the newer ones listed above. Because if you don't, the ghosting may drive you insane and/or give you a headache.

Other Thoughts: -1 star for the sub-par pair of glasses that come with the monitor that seemingly don't sync very well (at least with gaming), however getting a replacement pair of the newer SSG-3550CR glasses was really easy to find online and only another $50 or so (depending on where you go, and might be cheaper by the time you read this), and the end result is absolutely beautiful.

I would have taken off two stars, but the end result of this monitor and the newer glasses is so good I forgive all the researching and hunting I had to do. It's that good. Well worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad, But Overpriced

Pros: Brilliant colors, 120Hz Refresh, fast response, aesthetically pleasing monitor, very dark blacks and bright whites, no ghosting on 3D movies. 120 is excellent for non-stereoscopic 3D gaming!

Cons: Quality control issues.
Quite a bit of ghosting on games which you are able to get rid of most of it (not all, it's still there) with the software adjustments. 3D on Movies, no ghosting.
Poor 3D Performance (ghosting, if functioning at all).
My monitor stops displaying an image on the display port at least twice a week. To fix it, you just turn the monitor off and then back on again. It's a minor inconvenience but one that shouldn't exist in a monitor at this price point. If you search this model, others report this issue as well.

Other Thoughts: 3D problems from the beginning. I had to return this monitor twice. On the first monitor, the 3d Did not work at all, returned it. 2 weeks later the replacement arrived, the 3D worked, albeit a LOT of ghosting. Additionally, the second one had a 2 square in area in the BOTTOM-CENTER of the screen that was washed out and almost completely dark as if the display matrix was incomplete in that area. An image brilliant all around and all but black in 2 inches around the bottom, how did that make it out of the factor like that? 3rd one arrive, no picture anomalies and the 3D works a lot better then the first two. 33% acceptable monitor rate is not good. Plus the little display nuances with the display port. All of these problems make this monitor's cost WAY too high for the performance. The 3D is useless for games.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor

Pros: This monitor is very stylish and thin. The screen is glossy and it has a beautiful picture. It is 120Hz which i did notice in games and performance.

Cons: The monitor stand is not adjustable for height. The actual screen sits 5 inches high off of where its sitting. Because of this for me, the monitor was up too high. My desk uses a monitor stand, and because of the height, my viewing angles were poor. I noticed the screen was dark because of my poor viewing angle. It also does have a power brick.

Other Thoughts: I knew this before buying, but the monitor does not adjust for height. I returned this. Check your setup before buying this. It is a wonderful monitor if you get it setup well. I went for the BenQ and am very happy with that.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective 3D

Pros: Adequate 2D Monitor.

Cons: Defective and useless as a 3D monitor. With 3D enabled, ghosting is the almost the same with the glasses as without. The glasses seem to be improperly timed with the monitor or some other issue I cannot figure out.

I would call this a 3D monitor only in the sense that it claims to do 3D. I have yet to confirm it actually does display anything in 3D sufficiently.

Other Thoughts: I tried everything to get the 3D display to work. I ordered the glasses specifically mentioned in the manual in addition to those supplied with the monitor, no dice.

I tried installing the monitor INF file. Several times. No luck.

I RMAed the monitor and Newegg responded quickly with a replacement but the replacement was as defective as the original.

I contacted Samsung's tech support, both via the phone and Twitter. I submitted screenshots and demonstrations. Everyone was stumped.

I had a friend with a great deal of experience with 3D displays work on it independently as well. He conceded that the 3D display was horrid but was also unsuccessful in improving the display.

I confirmed timings, configurations, confirmed I bought the right monitor recommended by AMD for the Radeon card I'm using and still no such luck.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good, 3D movies look great.

Pros: Good size for sitting at desk or as small dorm TV.
Active 3D is much nicer that the passive that I've used.
Can add addition glasses ($20 Samsung pair from store worked fine)

Cons: Very glossy screen, reflects everything
Only included 1 pair of glasses, these are not pricey, as I mention in Pros a $20 pair from retail store paired fine.
I would like to have seen this support a wall hanger. I knew before buying it didn't, but it would have been better if it did.

Other Thoughts: I've watch several BD-3D movies and played a few games in 3D. All worked great. My graphics card is an HD-7970. With quality settings in BF3 on high and 3D enabled there was some frame rate drops, I've ordered a second HD-7970 to see if that fixes that.

I really need to get, or borrow, a good screen calibration setup as my BenQ and this Samsung are not matched up very well, so if I move a window from one to the other its colors shift a little. Samsung looks "colder".

4 out of 5 eggsMostly Okay...

Pros: 120hz Refresh
Three inputs: HDMI, DVI, Displayport
Bright with vivid colors
LED backlight
Interesting Design
Audio jack for passing through HDMI audio
Supports TriDef 3D with Radeon HD3D
Works with Playstation 3 3D
3D glasses allow more light through than Nvidia 3D Vision, allowing for a brighter image
3D depth seems better than Nvidia 3D Vision

Cons: No wall mount options
Bulky base *and* a power brick
Some very slight light bleed toward the botton sides
Glossy screen

Other Thoughts: At first I had mixed feelings about this monitor, I was purposely downsizing from a 27" display to gain 3D and 120hz refresh. I honestly don't see a difference with the higher refresh, and 3D was not supported in Radeon Crossfire mode at the time. On a positive note, my Playstation 3 detected 3D without any issues and looked great. Two weeks later, AMD announced a "preview" release of the Catalyst 12.1 driver set, which has allowed Crossfire to be used in HD3D mode, and now I feel better about my purchase. Some users have mentioned light bleed, and yes, there does appear to be some brighter areas along the bottom sides when viewing a black screen, but if I wasn't looking for them, I would not have noticed. The glossy screen also does tend to reflect some light from your enviornment, but not any worse than any other glossy screen. Compared to an Asus 3D display I was able to use previously, this is much brighter and vivid.
