Samsung SyncMaster S24A850DW 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Large screen area of display,

VERY clear, bright, sharp image.

Heavy base requiring lots of force to move.

Cons: Default cable sent is VGA...VGA became outdated and retired when HDMI and Displayport was introduced.

No HDMI port

Screen flicker defect on manufacture batch over X months during last quarter of year. Dates Sept-Dec.

Regardless of repair/refurbish work done returns with same result.

Pros: Core clock 50%, Memory clock 150% faster, Twice the CUDA cores then my old GTS 250.

Half the power needs then the GTS 250.

Cons: Texture draw rate is slower then my old card GTS 250, so in case's where it's mostly Textures and little the newer kinds of graphic production...the FPS will be slower.

Memory bandwidth is half of my old card as well, but it's GDDR5 vs DDR3...this verdict is in the air still as it can go either way. Faster data vs more data.

Other Thoughts: This is a con on Newegg's end, not the cards.

It's 2 DVI-D ports, not DVI. The connection points are different. On the flat end the DVI has a wider flat with 4 posts, the DVI-D just has a thiner flat with no posts.

Just some very needed info for anyone that has the old DVI cables but not the new DVI-D cables.
