SAMSUNG S27A850D Matt Black 27

Pros: Perfect non-glare coating. Text is very sharp.

Cons: Won't auto-wake from sleep: have to push power button on and off.
Not perfect consistency based on viewing angle.
Light bleed from corners.

Other Thoughts: The box says this is a "business monitor," and for normal every-day computing purposes such as reading and editing Word documents, viewing Excel spreadsheets, surfing the quality of this monitor is incredible and blows away the cheap piece of junk on my desk at work. If anything, my complaint is that the monitor is TOO BIG for mere web surfing.

Even though it's a large monitor, it's very thin, much thinner than the Samsung 214T which its replacing. And you can adjust the monitor any-which-way as far as height or angle. The integrated USB 3.0 hub is actually very convenient if you're going to use the monitor to dock a notebook computer. And the displayport input works great with my MacBook Air.

But remember, even though it's a pretty expensive monitor, it's only an entry-level 2560 x 1440 monitor, so if you have some critical need for editing photos or video, you should heed the warnings of others which I think are accurate. There's some light bleed in the bottom corners which is easily noticeable when the screen is displaying something black and the lighting is dim, and there is not perfect consistency in brightness and color temperature if you change your viewing angle (although I don't think this is any worse than on the "Retina" display on my new iPad).

My main annoyance with the monitor is not about the stuff above, but that it won't auto-wake from sleep when used with my desktop computer with a Radeon 5700 series video card (if you computer is set to sleep the monitor after a certain amount of inactivity)--I need to toggle the on-off button on the front of the panel.

5 out of 5 eggs Seems great 12/02/2012

This review is from: Linksys E1200 Wireless-N300 Router

Pros: The setup was really easy, I've had flawless wireless connectivity from all my devices since I turned it on several days ago (unlike the one I replaced by some other brand), and it's inexpensive, so I have no reason not to give it five stars.

Cons: None.
