Summary: I have purchased the product back in 2012 (Less than 3 years). This monitor has broken down for no reason. I have tried with HDMI and VGA connections and both have no luck at all. I used the same cables and the same pc to connect to a different monitor and it worked fine.
Good Monitor, Refurbished Model Has Slight Imperfections Though
4 July 2012
Summary: I received this monitor a few days ago. I have no found any dead pixels but I have found a couple of scratches on the top left corner. Also, the back panel that is supposed to have 3 points that click to (and hold the wires under) the back of monitor has a broken clip.
Summary: This monitor definitely looks good, and the price was fair for the performance and the power consumption features. It would have got a 5 star rating if it weren't for the stand. It's not the assembly, which others have commented on. I had no problem with the assembly.
Summary: After reading the other reviews, I purchased this, but not as happy as I thought I would be. The resolution is not as superior as a smaller, older one that I have. It will be OK for basic work, but not for hi-def viewing.
Summary: In today's day - a DVI port - or a display port are EXPECTED - but this monitor has neither. It is pretty much a TV without a tuner in it. It has VGA and HDMI. Also, there is no way to mount this monitor on a wall mount.
Summary: I have had this monitor hooked up to my Mac laptop and Windows7 machines for a few days now and wanted to share a few thoughts. Overall this is a good inexpensive monitor. Large screen, VERY bright, etc. 1920x1080 (1080p) video and down looks great, as do games.
Samsung SyncMaster S27A550H is the different one in quality
3 August 2012
Excerpt: I first saw the monitor in the office where I work. I supect that the Samsung SyncMaster S27A550H is the same as any other PC monitor I've ever used before. It turns out my guess, I was wrong, after turning it on and using it about 4 hours, In my opinion It's the different one in quality.
Summary: das war und wird mein letzter Samsung Monitor, er steht sehr wackelig und vom Bild und Anschlüsse hätte ich mehr erwartet, er sieht nur gut aus ist aber sein Geld nicht wert. Samsung wird langsam zur sehr billig marke schade
Summary: Ich habe mir zwei dieser 27"-Bildschirme gekauft (als Ersatz für meine bisherigen 22"-Bildschirme, da mir diese zu klein waren). Die Installation war einfach und das Bild ist - auch in Spielen - einwandfrei. Sehr negativ aufgefallen ist mir allerdings die Halterung.
