Rich, accurate colors, Wide viewing angles
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.
Numerous on-screen display controls, Very accurate color and gamma
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.
Beautiful design and high-specification
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.
Flexible stand with auto-rotate, Two HDMI ports
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.
Save some money
Great monitor, I like the height (unlike the reviewer below), and as of this writing (5/26/13) Best Buy has this on sale for $319+tax. Save yourself almost %50 if you want to get it. Its a bit annoying this reviewer below, nowhere on the listing does this say you can adjust the height. If you make a substantial dollar purchase w/o doing any research, then complain and write a bad review of the monitor, that is not a fair review of the product.
Stylish design, Pivtoing stand, Anti-glare finish
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.
PLS proves itself as a viable alternative to IPS
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.
Was using a Apple cinema 30" for some time running 2560/1600 resolution and it was a very good monitor for many years. I used the Apple for gaming primarily. The Samsung is a bit smaller but you would never know the difference after having it on for an hour. I'm running the native 2560/1440 resolution and its simply the most amazing looking monitor I've ever seen. I was debating going with the Dell 30" but once I saw this it wasn't close.
Wireless display when using PCs with specific Intel processors
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.
Integrated Freeview HD tuner
Samsung's Series 9 T27A950 drew big crowds when it was first unveiled at the 2011 CES. A hybrid 27-inch Freeview HD 3D TV and PC monitor, it's a leading-edge screen for your desktop that offers all the functions of the brand's high-end LED TVs.
The design is inspired, with a panel that's effectively suspended above its pedestal via a swooping right-hand bracket. This tilts backwards for a relaxed viewing position.
Accurate colour reproduction after adjustments
There's no two ways about it: the Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 is the best TV-monitor hybrid we've ever tested, and it's almost as good at faking 3D as it is at showing genuine 3D content. That said, its competitors still have an advantage in certain areas.
Poor color production & bad viewing angles
If looks could sell, we would be all AED 3,499 lighter. But the Samsung T27A950 TV-monitor hybrid disappoints in almost all fronts be it color production, viewing angles, ergonomics and even 3D. At its price point, one would rather buy a 32" 1080p TV they are dirt cheap nowadays, anyway.
