This review is from: SAMSUNG Series 9 S27B970D High Gloss Black/Brushed Aluminum 27" 5ms (GTG) WQHD Height Adjustable HDMI PLS Panel Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor 285 cd/m2 1000:1 Static w/Speakers
Pros: Great resolution. Designer look is nice. I love having the cables connect to the base and not the back of the panel. Calibration dramatically improves color performance.
Cons: Out of box calibration was terrible. I had to purchase and re-calibrate with Datacolor Spyder 4 Elite. This is normal gamut not wide gamut so it only reaches sRGB and not Adobe RGB. Hard to get whites to be pure white without impacting other colors.
Other Thoughts: Monitor performs as advertised and looks great. I should have done my homework on the gamut. Comparing it's color performance to an HP Dreamcolor may not be fair. If I had to purchase again it would still be between the Samsung and the Apple CinemaREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing color when calibrated. Response time good enough for gaming. Holds up well after over a year of ownership.
Cons: Super expensive. Don't buy this if you are not going to calibrate it and use it professional. Other reviewer's comment about black levels and brightness are accurate.
Other Thoughts: I bought this for gaming because I wanted a color accurate LED screen. It works great but in retrospect if you do not have a professional purpose for this monitor, purchase something cheaper. I think I ordered this directly from HP at the time. Newegg has not always carried it.READ FULL REVIEW
