SAMSUNG Series 9 S27B970D High Gloss Black/Brushed Aluminum 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

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 Cinema

HP DreamColor LP2480zx Black-Silver 24
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

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.
