4 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor!

Pros: Spectacular Colors (need a little adjustment first but then Voilá)
No pixel burns or anything.
Awesome response time.
No visible input lag. (No ghosting whatsoever)
Nice viewing angles although it doesn't have an IPS screen.

Cons: NO DVI (it is a freaking monitor, not a television why not a DVI port)
It doesn't have height adjustment.
Stand feels a little bit flimsy.
Again, no DVI port.

Other Thoughts: I use this monitor to play PS3 (CoD BO2, Super Street Fighter 4, Tekken Tag Tornament 2) and PC (BF3, CS:GO, Far Cry 3, Diablo 3, Tomb Raider and Guild Wars 2) I have had no issues with this monitor and I have use it for almost a year now. I also have a Sony HX820 46" 3d tv, and this monitor blows that tv away. That is why I have change the PS3 to play it on this monitor. But for the lack of the DVI port I took an egg out.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Display

Pros: Monitor/Display is simple amazing. The color is true and no bleed through.

Cons: Kit DOES NOT come with a DVI to HDMI cord or adapter. I had to take a trip to Fr**'s to buy one.

Other Thoughts: Most folks that buy a display like this are running mid/high end graphics cards that normally are dual dvi. So why then does Samsung NOT package that type of cord? Instead it comes with a vga to vga and a HDMI to ml cord?

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitor

Pros: Colors that come alive, the picture difference from your old monitor will be immediately noticable.

Cons: None really except as with all technology you wish the price was lower.

Other Thoughts: The guy who wrote the 1 star review obviously doesn't understand monitors very well because he wrote LED technology isn't there yet so he went back to buying LCD monitors, that makes no sense. LED is the type of backlighting used as opposed to CCFL and has nothing to do with the panels used (all are LCD for now).

1 out of 5 eggscable support

Pros: Picture quality is good. Very few adjustments required to set up.

Cons: The unit comes with two cables. One RGB and the other HDMI to mini HDMI to connect to a phone with MHL. The mini HDMI cable is not compatable with the Samsung Galaxy S3. Two star rating for providing a monitor that requires seperate purchase of an HDMI cable for the computer and an adapter for MHL. The magic tune software also has periodic issue saying it is not compatable.

Other Thoughts: Contacted Samsung, they were no help. Found out about the cable on Android forums

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Monitor

Pros: Extremely easy to set up. Currently running it through VGA with no issues at 1920x1080 with all of the best settings enabled. The picture is fantastic and I love the size. Had a 22" Samsung before this but this trumps it by far!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This was a rather large upgrade for me. I had a Samsung Syncmaster 226CW for a few years and I loved it, the response time and crystal clear resolution made for excellent gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Bang For The Buck

Pros: I love the size of the monitor. I think it's just right for 1920x1080 for a desktop monitor (I honestly think smaller monitors in the 19-22" range are a bit small for 1920x1080), and the price was definitely right for such a large monitor.

Has exactly what I needed it for and nothing more. I was specifically looking for a monitor that had 2 HDMI inputs, onboard audio processing, and an audio out so I could send HDMI into it from PS3, and then audio out to PC speaker system while also having an HDMI in for the PC as well, and this does just that.

The picture quality is superb in my opinion. I adjusted color settings a little from factory default, but not much.

I also like how the monitor can be in a constant sleep state and it's intelligent enough to know which input to turn on based on whether I power on the PC or turn on the PS3. I basically never have to touch the buttons on the monitor unless both PC and PS3 are on and I need to toggle between the two.

Cons: The onboard speakers are absolutely atrocious. I don't count this as a con because I was never planning to use the onboard speakers anyway, and as mentioned in the pros section, I wanted to have the HDMI in carry sound out through a 3.5mm audio out which this monitor does. It does only carry 2 channel sound out, but that wasn't a big issue for me since I don't have an elaborate surround system (just a woofer and 2 speakers).

I thought the monitor didn't have a tilt capability and I would've taken an egg off, but it apparently does after reading the review here where Samsung says it does have tilt and the manual sure enough says it has a tilt. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I just need tilted up a small amount and it would be positioned perfectly and this would honestly be the perfect monitor for my requirements.

Other Thoughts: I was thinking about being a VESA wall mount for the monitor thinking there was no tilt, but it can tilt up to 20 degrees backward.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Awsome

Pros: Size is just enourmous. Bright, colorful no ghost no dead pixels. Stand is Beautiful but.. its a con.

Cons: as others have said the stand is just not for this calibur of a monitor. no tilt. sits to far forward while flat on desk, have to prop up to sit right.

Other Thoughts: bought on sale, price hasnt ben this low for this monitor since last black friday. Newegg ships super fast thanks newegg.

Manufacturer Response:


Thank you for purchasing the Samsung S27B550V.

Please be informed that the monitor does indeed tilt. Place the monitor on a flat sturdy surface, hold the base down firmly with one hand, grasp the top center of the bezel with your other hand and push firmly and gently back. This should tilt the monitor screen back.

To tilt forward, simply pull the top of the monitor towards you while pushing the bottom back.

Hope this helps.
