Very wide display gives lots of desktop space, lots of brightness power
Colour uniformity was very good, the biggest discrepency coming at 83% Brightness, along the top third with the middle showing a Delta-E of 4.9. Everything else was much lower. Colour accuracy overall gave an average Delta-E of 1.84 with the problem area being dark cyan colours at 4.72. Colour coverage results showed a slightly disappointing 99% sRGB coverage, 76% NTSC and 82% Adobe RGB. In the brightness test the panel could reach a high 365 cd/m2. Contrast ratio is advertised at 1000:1.
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.
Killer Pro Photo & Graphics Monitor
I personally would recommend this monitor to anyone needing to see truly accurate photos and graphics in their work. I will also tell you everything else looks wonderful as well. All my email, word processing, spreadsheet and browser programs shine with clear and very sharp, accurate, super readable fonts. The extra real estate I get with my Windows 7 Pro desktop is greatly appreciated as well. It's native 1920 x 1200 resolution is a joy.
Great color and clarity at a low price
I purchase purchased and had to return 4 monitors before I got this one. I purchased an ACER which had strong LED bleed though on all sides, then I purchased a Samsung and there was bleed though on 2 sides, after that I went for two LGs and the first one did not have support for it in the US and I could not even register it on LGs website because it was not listed, I then purchased another LG and this one was good in most ways but it was cloudy.
Nice Wide Viewing Angles With Good Color, Very Thin and Compact
HP may have placed their Pavilion name branding on their latest 27-inch display but it frankly offers the same general performance of its more expensive ENVY monitor but at a lower price. The IPS display technology provides it with wide viewing angles and some good color but it still sits at that same 1920x1080p as smaller more affordable displays. Overall, it is a good option for those that are looking for large screen with a basic set of features that still has a relatively thin profile.
Very good image quality, Accurate color rendition
HP's Pavilion 27xi is an affordable 27-inch, full HD display. It looks good sitting on your desk, and image quality on the panel itself will please all but the most demanding users. With no height adjustment on the stand and the lack of VESA mounting capability, the ergonomics are lacking a bit. But, at right around $300 (it has a list price of $340, but we've seen it marked down by HP to $300 for at least a month now), it's also affordable.
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.
High-quality, large display
Making the jump from a 27-inch display to a 30-inch display is a substantial investment: Dell's U3014 costs a lot more than either Dell's 27-inch U2713H or Apple's 27-inch Thunderbolt displays. And it's even more expensive than Dell's other 30-inch monitor, the UltraSharp U3011 (which has a less-sophisticated panel and supports only the older DisplayPort standard). But if you need a professional feature set in a very large monitor, The UltraSharp U3014 delivers.
Best gaming LCD I've seen
urchased this from B&HPhotoVideo store at $265 shipped, installed a few days ago and 144Hz works flawlessly with my 670 SLI! haven't tested most demanding games, but now surely I can finally turn off Vsync (even adaptive) completely in some games to eliminate any kind of lag (adaptive vsync) or tearing (e.g. vsync off on 60hz monitor).
I love the stand, it's very stable and allows for all direction adjustments, similar to my former most favorite Dell Ultrasharp kind.
Good colour reproduction, Tilt and roation adjustment
I think most of us will agree that a decent 120-144Hz screen is a rather desirable little gaming panel, minus forking out for an Nvidia 3D Vision bundle. Sure, Asus has got some impressive screen technology in its monitor range, but it needs to get a lot more competitive on the price front given the value on offer from both BenQ and Iiyama at the moment.
Matte screen surface offered good glare-reduction
ASUS are fairly unambiguous in their marketing of the VG248QE on their website, on their printed materials and on the base of the monitor itself. This is designed to be a gaming monitor that delivers a super-responsive experience in fast paced games. With its super-low input lag, very good pixel responsiveness (with configurable overdrive) and 144Hz refresh rate the monitor does deliver a superbly smooth gaming experience.
Fast response time
Looking at the features and user reviews, it looks like they made good job manufacturing this ASUS VG248QE. It's obviously made with gamers and movie & sports viewers on mind because of fast response and refresh rates. For professional image editing, it might not be optimal though. That said, for most uses the monitor is great.
Refresh rate of 144 Hz
The ASUS VG248QE is not perfect. There might be some color leakage at the back but this is the best quality gaming monitor you will get at this price. If gaming is your top priority then this monitor will complete your gaming setup to the fullest.
Nice build quality
The ASUS VG248QE 144hz monitor is an excellent screen for 3D gaming. In this regard it is a worthwhile purchase and will cost around £100 less than the bigger 27inch ASUS VG278HE 144hz which we reviewed back in October 2012.
While we can't find the VG248QE on sale yet in the United Kingdom, ASUS informed us that it will be priced around the £300-£320 mark, inc vat. At this price it does face stiff competition, especially from products already in the ASUS portfolio.
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.
Ultra-wide 29in display, good screen brightness and colour consistency
Brightness consistency was very good, with the bottom right side corner being the only area of much difference, the worst part being 6.2% dimmer at 100% Brightness and at 50% Brightness there was only one area at 3.5% dimmer. Colour uniformity was good, if not great, with the bottom left and middle areas showing variation up to 4.5 Delta- E, the bottom right being 3.0 and everywhere else at under 2.5 at 100% Brightness.
Must use PC input for dual source, Doesn't scale/letterbox
The biggest "problem" if you want to call it that with the AOC Q2963PM is the price. For $500, you can get two smaller displays and put them side by side. Sure, it isn't one, ultra-wide display, but it will probably cost you less than $500. For example, if you just use the 16:9 with a 1080p input, you end up with an image that is 23.75" diagonal. Right now, AOC's own 24" e2460Sd will run you less than $150 on Amazon (the MSRP is $190).
