Too many problems

NF Land, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: So, I originally purchased a Samsung S27A750D 27-Inch Class 3D LED Monitor - Black . My understanding is that they use the same panel, though I could be wrong. But in any case I've had it replaced under warranty twice, both times with the current monitor I'm reviewing (due to lack of stock of the...

  • Summary: I cannot review the performance of this product yet. I can only review the problems I've had with Samsung and this monitor. I bought my monitor through another reputable vendor and I reviewed it there too. This monitor was purchased to replace a 19 inch LCD Samsung monitor that stopped working.

Good for games...

Katalin G., Newegg
29 April 2012
  • Summary: For the price, I expected better font display than it has; monitors costing a fraction of this monitor's price do a better job with the fonts. This maybe due to the resolution of 1920x1080, but I doubt it. The chances are that it is due to the pixel size...
  • Pros: Great colors, once adjusted correctly, the "Standard" setting is the closest that this monitor should be set at. In FPS games the colors are amazing, especially around water with the reflection of the buildings, etc. No ghosting in FPS games. The gloss finish isn't much of an issues, this monitor...
  • Cons: This is not a good monitor for documents, text, or just simply browsing the 'net. The fonts are washed out and not well defined, look fuzzy around the edges. The white is not really white that also contributes to make it harder to read text, regardless of the font size. Win7's display calibration...

Great Picture Quality, Shoddy QC From Samsung

Ryan Bates "Crzy1", Amazon
28 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this monitor at the beginning of February. When I first unpacked it, I was impressed by the overall aesthetic design of it. The brushed aluminum base and back look fantastic. I use it in a dark room so the glossy screen coating wasn't an issue for me.

Wrong Glasses

Benjamin D., Newegg
9 February 2012
  • Summary: Contacted samsung 4 TIMES! could not get them to send me the correct glasses. Will be returning this item to store.
  • Pros: Great monitor picture
  • Cons: 3d is horrible crosstalk or ghosting, much like other reviewers I received the wrong set of glasses and I beleive them to be the problem. Seeing 2 images in right eye. The display at the store had the correct glasses, new unopened box had the bad ones. Monitor is made for ssg-3150gb glasses as st...

Very disappointed!!!!

Sipster, Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: I was very excited about this monitor. I was blown away by just how cool looking it was once I unboxed it and sat it on my desk. I hooked up the cables and set to 120hz and was getting ready to play some games then I noticed the dead pixel towards the upper right corner of the screen.

Good, but serious issues for the price

Alexander B., Newegg
7 October 2011
  • Summary: Overall I like the screen quality and it pairs up nicely with my Apple Cinema Display, but the quality control is utterly disappointing. Will be attempting to get a replacement from Newegg.
  • Pros: Fantastic colors, 120Hz, 3D, overall its great SCREEN for a $600-$700 monitor. I personally like glossy screens, so this may be a pro or con depending on the amount of glare.
  • Cons: The bad...the reason I am rating this 2 out of 5 is mainly for poor quality control and build quality. Where to begin? Mine arrived with several dents on the base panel, could be due to the poorly packaged accessories that were free to fly around the box (not the fault of Newegg, but Samsung). I ...
