  • The Samsung Series 9 S27B971D is an attractive 27-inch PLS monitor that delivers bold and accurate color reproduction and very dark blacks. It is well equipped and offers wide viewing angles but it has trouble at the dark end of the grayscale and is very expensive.


  • If you just want accurate color, and you want it without going through the effort and expense of calibration, then the Samsung Series 9 might be for you. But we also think that the "average" user looking for an exceptional all-purpose monitor will be better served by less expensive competitors.


  • When compared to last year's S27B970D monitor, the new Samsung S27B971D changes just one feature - swapping its predecessor's distractingly glossy display for a matt one, which makes a big difference when using it on a daily basis for photography. In all other regards the two monitors are exactly the same, sharing the beautiful design and high-specification, along with 99% sRGB colour gamut coverage and a very respectable 77% of the AdobeRGB spectrum.


  • The Samsung Series 7 S27C750P is an attractive 27-inch monitor that uses MVA panel technology to deliver rich colors and sharp viewing angles. It is equipped with a flexible stand and two HDMI ports but lacks a few features and has trouble displaying the darkest shades of gray.


  • This stylish display features an MVA panel and it can pivot to portrait mode, but we wouldn't recommend using it for applications where color accuracy is paramount.


  • It's not an open and shut case, but the Samsung S27C750P monitor just about earns our recommendation mainly on the strength of its anti-glare finish and outstanding design. There's better value to be found elsewhere, but this is a very good monitor for the discerning shopper.


  • Samsung's SyncMaster S27A850T is an incredibly pretty, thin monitor, which proves that PLS is a viable IPS alternative. We did find some banding in gradients, and the HDMI movie performance isn't great, but for beautiful sharp imagery and high-level computer use, it's incredibly appealing.


  • Samsungâ??s top business monitor is expensive, but it has excellent image quality in almost all aspects. Itâ??s also generally well made and has a wide range of connectors.


  • The Samsung SyncMaster T27B750 offers a giant coffer's worth of features and sports a beautiful design, but its performance was underwhelming.


  • I wouldn't use the Samsung T27B750ND as my everyday computer-desktop monitor, but it works well as a TV/PC display combo in areas with limited space. Its ability to connect wirelessly with certain Intel-equipped Windows PCs and to surf the Web without any PC or Mac connection make it more interesting to use as a living-room PC monitor.
