The Ultra-Clear Panel and 100% Photo Accuracy technologies create exceptionally vibrant and true-to-life colors. Samsung’s active 3D technology ensures you get Full 1080p HD resolution and catch every detail.

Top it off with a striking design, ultra-narrow bezel and razor-slim panel and you’ve got a great looking monitor on your desk.

Pros: Great picture, color and size. Thin. Good eco options.

Cons: Sometimes there is a vertical line of pixilation going down the center of the screen. They only way to get rid of it is to turn the monitor off and back on. Changing cables didn't help. Samsung customer support is bad.

apology and correction 11/5/2012 7:01:26 PM

Pros: This review is an apology to Bob Tpain. I did more research and did indeed find on this site the Asus monitor model VG278HE that does have the 144 Hz. refresh rate. I have no issue admitting I was wrong. And thusly apologize for my previous comment.

Cons: None

Overall Review: It took me a bit to find the Asus monitor though since the search options do not list an option for a refresh rate of higher than 120 Hz. But I kept looking and came back to admit I was wrong. Still wont buy it though. My loyalties lie with Samsung.

SAMSUNG S27A950D Black 27" 11/2/2012 12:48:18 AM

Pros: Beautiful picture, 3D functionality is very cool, COD3 very crisp, Battlefield 3 in 3D is awesome, 2D to 3D conversion
is almost as good as a movie made in 3D, AutoCAD w/ 3D structural package is great as well

Cons: About $100 more than comparable models, only capable od 120hz refresh rate

Overall Review: It took me a while to choose this one over the 27" ASUS 3D monitor with 144hz refresh rate. I just felt better since i've never had any trouble with my Samsung flat screen tv's

Great monitor and image quality 9/10/2012 6:07:44 AM

Pros: Great image quality, great 3D support on games with Tridef or using AMD HD3D. Mass Effect 3 was stunning and Dirt 3 looks okay. Great 120Hz smoothness and awesome contrast/brightness ratio, very thin, it weights moderately, runs cold and has an external power brick and support for DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

Cons: Glossy screen might be an issue, some minor crosstalk with glasses, the stand it isn't firm enough and may wobble a bit and can't be adjusted at all except if you tilt it up and down (20 degrees may be). Default calibration leaves a lot to be desired, glasses are ugly and can't be recharged, minor backlight bleeding around the edges, plus it isn't compatible with nVidia 3D technology.

Overall Review: Overall, this is one of the TN panel based monitors with the best image quality in the market, I barely noticed a difference in image quality compared to my HP LP1965 which uses P-MVA panel. Im overall sattisfied with this monitor and responsiveness with no lag even in 3D. Its a bit expensive but you will love its image clarity, great 3D performance and smooth 120Hz image, its a dream of a monitor which makes a perfect match with Radeon HD hardware. If you want to use nVidia, I recommend you something else.

Monitor Okay, Support Terrible 8/19/2012 5:03:30 PM

Pros: It's a very thin and bright monitor with a 120Hz refresh rate for 2D graphics.

Also capable of doing 3D at 1080p 60Hz per eye via DisplayPort cable on AMD cards.

Cons: I mainly got this monitor for the 120Hz 2D capabilities and I realize 3D was mainly just a bonus, but I received glasses that clearly do not work or are not made for this monitor. When I pay such a price for a item, I expect all aspects of it to be working as intended.

The glasses I received are what many claim them to be, "SSG-M3050GB." These glasses produce terrible crosstalk / ghosting and I have repeatedly attempted to contact Samsung to at least send or replace them with the, "SSG-M3150." Each time all they do is keep sending one nonsense email after another with another step to do.

After eight days of consecutive emails and multiple things they keep saying is the, "last step", it's pretty clear all the CS reps jobs are to just string people along until they give up.

After trying to get somewhere via live chat and phone I still have little hope they will send me the glasses.

Overall Review: Decent monitor, but if you expect all aspects of it to be working as intended you may be let down. Trying to deal with Samsung support is like trying to break down a brick wall bare hands tied behind your back.

I would have given this monitor at least a three id they would send me glasses that actually work, but based on the CS I have been receiving, it doesn't even deserve that.
