Summary: PROS: The image quality is excellent. The color is rich, I cannot discern any difference in accuracy between this and my 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt display. This works very well with my mid-2012 MacBook pro. CONS: (1) Very bright --- during the day, with the lights on, I have to set it to 5% brightness, or it fatigues my eyes. (2) The stand is wobbly; it bobbles around a bit while I type.
Summary: Let's start off with the Pros/Cons of Samsung's SyncMaster SA850T ****** PROS ****** - Latest LED PLS monitor technology - Vibrant and accurate color rendering - Great pixel density for a 27'' screen (2560x1440) - 5ms Response time - Ideal for high end gaming systems - Ideal for graphic design - Very wide viewing angles - Simple and elegant design - Matte Finish so no greasy fingerprints - Adjustable to landscape and portrait orientations - Includes a 4 port USB hub -...
Summary: This is by far the best monitor I've ever seen. Great resolution, great vibrant colors, awesome brightness, thin, light weight, wall mountable. I absolutely love this monitor! Samsung is the absolute best display manufacturer by far.
Summary: While this monitor would be an excellent office monitor, and it's great for viewing Word, Excel and Visio documents (they do look so much better on a high-resolution monitor), the light bleed in the lower right corner (as many others have complained about so it's not just my monitor) makes it very unsatisfying for watching movies or viewing photos in full-screen, so I don't recommend this as a home monitor. Besides the light bleed problem, the quality is excellent.
Summary: I use the S27A850D display as a second display for a MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt display. Pro: - Rotatable display allows portrait or landscape orientation. Cons: - The color and image quality is nowhere near as good as the Apple Thunderbolt display. I've adjusted the settings repeatedly, and even tried using Samsung's `auto' settings, but the quality just isn't there. - Not plug-and-play for 2560 x 1440 resolution.
Summary: I like this monitor most. When I compared with normal computer monitor,it's very very gorgeous quality & function. I strongly suggest to buy this product to all of customers. All of customers will be satisfied with this product.
Excerpt: I used this product just long enough to discover that it was not compatible with Mac computers. It was purchased due to its supposedly better resolution than the ViewSonic monitor I use alongside an iMac. Unfortunately, I found that Samsung (probably by design) does not supply a Mac-compatible driver for it. Back into the shipping containers!
Excerpt: I've had this monitor for approx. one and one half years. I use it with a MacBook Pro and also with an 09 Mini running Snow Leopard which I only use for a film scanning program that was never updated for Lion or above. Love the Thunderbolt port. Works great with Mini Display port on the Mini. Love the matte finish. I'm a writer and can stare at text for hours (I turn brightness down) without eye strain. Watching video from web or disc is beautiful on this monitor.
