Samsung S27A850D

16 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Samsung’s S27A850D – and the 24-inch S24A850D – monitor offers a slim design with the classic black matte bezel used on most professional monitors. The picture settings options are adequate for most users but it offers nowhere near the level of picture customization of Eizo’s monitors .
