Wish I could tell you... Samsung SyncMaster LED S27A550H (SA550) Model Code LS27A550HS/ZA

Eric "True Blue", Amazon
18 May 2015
  • Summary: I was excited to un-box this Samsung SyncMaster LED S27A550H (SA550), model code LS27A550HS/ZA. I did not have any trouble with the base. It clicked in and there was screw to tighten the neck to the base under the base. Too easy. Next, I plug in the HDMI cable.

flickering in less than 6 months

Randy W., Newegg
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I think its absurd you cant find a good high performance 27 inch monitor for under $200 and is it too much to ask for the ability to rotate the screen?
  • Pros: clear 1080p very thin and lightweight
  • Cons: I have seen flickering since day 1, it went away after a few days or maybe I stopped noticing it but Ive been dealing with the constant flickering now for a month.

Went bonkers after a year

Dalia Page "Dalia", Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I have always been a huge fan of Samsung monitors. They have always had great quality and long life. This model did love me for the entire year that I owned it, but then it decided to turn. It began to blink. The blinking would not stop no matter what I did.

This is the single worst computer monitor I have ever had the displeasure of owning.

Burr S., Newegg
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Nope, think I got it all out.
  • Pros: The only thing I can say about this thing is that it's garbage. I bought 3 all at one time in order to complete a surround setup, and I have had nothing but trouble ever since. I had one monitor do the good ol' blinki-failure on me in the first 28 days, so thinking everything was fine I carted it...
  • Cons: nothing short of abysmal. Now one of the monitors I have is lost in the mail, and I have no working monitors after spending 3 months of my time and over 1200 dollars, so thank you Samsung. Never have I been slighted so hard by a company whose brand I trusted and recommended more than probably any...

dead in 8 days

Anonymous, Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Summary: bought this on sale for a great price from a retail store (basically what it costs now but it was $100 more on newegg at the time) and took it home to set it up. long story short it wasn't as simple as just plugging it in like the previous monitor it replaced.
  • Pros: great picture: deep blacks, vibrant colors.
  • Cons: no physical buttons means navigating the menu or even turning it on was a nuisance. included software is a joke (some of it claimed it wouldn't work with my product), stand was a nice idea gone horribly wrong (it tries to let you run the cables through it but it barely had enough room for just 1 ...

cheap

Marcin R., Newegg
26 November 2011
  • Summary: Never had a monitor that i had to install software in order to adjust colours and picture quality. After messing with it for 1 hour i put it back in the box. I would not pay for it more than $100. Does not even have any good extras.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Very, very cheaply made. After i put it together it was not level. After few adjustments it was still off a little bit and it could not be fixed because it does not pivot or swivel. The stand is simply poorly constructed and bad. After i got over the crooked stand, it was time to turn it on. I go...

Can't adjust vertical or horizontal positions

Charles R., Newegg
30 October 2011
  • Summary: Its a shame, really. Great looking monitor but this black bar is enough for me to return this monitor.
  • Pros: Picture is great, after some adjustments.
  • Cons: There is a very small horizontal bar on the top of the monitor, sounded easy enough to resolve. So, I open menu -> size and position, and i notice that h and v position options are both grayed out...great Auto Adjust was also grayed out. Installed the samsung software that came with the monitor.....

Bad Caps

Michael L., Newegg
4 July 2011
  • Summary: Samsung has an issue with Bad caps and when mine went bad and I contacted them about it their support didn't seem to understand english. Doubt I'll buy samsung again. Really capacitors are not something any of us should see go bad.
  • Pros: Looks great while the caps last
  • Cons: Bad caps, bad tech support, make that horrible

  • Summary: Vor ca. drei Jahren haben wir für unser Büro mehrere Bildschirme dieses Herstellers gekauft. Nur zwei davon waren S23A550H. Die restlichen waren allerdings sehr ähnliche 22" und 24" Bildschirme des gleichen Herstellers.

schicker Monitor aber...

Schwarzeiche, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: Hab den Monitor im August 2012 gekauft. Im Oktober, nach Ablauf der Rückgabefrist, fing das Bild ständig an zu blinken. Der Kundenservice funktioniert gut. Musste das Gerät einschicken und wurde schnell repariert. Anfang Dezember trat das gleiche Problem wieder auf. D.h.
