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.
Excellent color and grayscale performance, Feature rich
The Lenovo ThinkVision LT3053p is a well-appointed 30-inch monitor for professionals who demand accuracy. It's pricey but it delivers excellent color and grayscale performance and is loaded with features, including a KVM switch and a shading hood.
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.
