Summary: The Samsung 275T is a monitor intended for graphics professionals or those who seriously have thought of having a dual screen set up. At 27" it's a perfect size, 30" can be a bit much for viewing and often times a lot for graphics cards to process. For those familiar with large monitors, you notice first off the screen has a matte finish which prevents reflection and is a super advantage for long hours in front of Photoshop.
Summary: FOUR months with this baby! I really enjoy working on this monitor. (I upgraded from a 19in SONY CRT (circa 1998) which was truly the best monitor ever except its should have been called the SASQUATCH and when it turned 9 it started to ghost.) I am transitioning to paperless (? is that possible) and this 27in SAMSUMG has got such a small foot print I nearly cried the day I unpacked it. The color is great and the brightness is almost blinding if you wish it so!
Summary: I got this monitor and have been very impressed. It really does it all. have the main pic hooked up to my computer and with great color although I found the reds a little much for human skin tone with DVD that are played through. Adjusting is fine. TV through S video (Standard Definition digital signal) cannot be faulted. Will upgrade to HDTV in future as can display HD. No speakers but hooked up to Set top box and sounds fantastic to match screen.
Summary: Great monitor! I purchased the 32" Sharp Aquos LCD TV as a monitor replacement but after seeing how horrible non-gaming tasks (web browsing, word processing, etc) looked I returned it. I'm very happy with this monitor!
Summary: the Samsung 3yr no dead pixel warranty is what really splits the Samsung and the Dell. Try getting Dell to replace the screen which has several dead pixels in the middle of the screen but none elsewhere.
Summary: I've been using this monitor for the past week and I must say it's quite an amazing monitor. Having inputs like component and even s-video/av is a great bonus. However not supporting 1080p over component is quite a big disappointment.. DVI works great with 1080p and it's supposedly supposed to work with VGA.
Pros: - Great monitor overall - Super fast refresh - Excellent contrast for an LCD - 1080p looks great - Optional speakers if you really want (although I don't see it sold where the monitors are sold) - 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i also look great
Cons: - Can't do 1080p over component - Can't get 1080p to work properly over VGA from an Xbox360
Summary: I've been using a CRT before this, and I've looked long and hard at various LCD monitors to find one with minimal compromises in terms of color and respone time. This monitor not only delivers the goods, but also adds a bonus of bigger text and larger vieweing area compared to the more common 24-inch monitors.
Pros: color quality, viewing angle, response time, many adjustable settings.
