NO WONDER ITS REFURBISHED.

WINSTON S., Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: THE PICTURE SEEMS TO BE AWESOME AND THE REFURB ISSUES SEEM TO BE COSMETIC. FIRST OF ALL, I DIDNT GET THE SOFTWARE CD IN THE BOX AND THE 3-D BATTERY WAS DOA, THAT ASIDE, THE LEFT SIDE OF THE MONITOR FALLS 1/5 OF AN INCH LOWER THEN THE RIGHT SIDE OF MONITOR....

Works great

Chad R., Newegg
21 February 2012
  • Pros: -The 2d to 3d conversion works, but is so-so -Battlefield 3 in 3d from game options looks very good -I don't notice any bleed unless I'm actually looking for it -I'm a gamer, and going from a 22" monitor to this 27" monitor is just so day and night difference in games. Was torn between IPS and 12...
  • Cons: -The 3d glasses shipped with the monitor is not the same one reviewers got. Was given the cheapest pair, hence why I believe the 2d to 3d conversion on the monitor is so-so. -Bleeding is there, but if you are not looking for it, you likely will not notice it. Even in a game dark like Skyrim, I do...

User Review

Jason C., Newegg
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I have this as the center of an Eyefinity display. It is flanked by 2 Asus V278Q monitors. The Samsung is definitely the better display, but I dont know if its twice as good (based on twice the price).
  • Pros: -Image quality -120Hz -Fully adjustable image settings -3D is pretty darn good (but i rarely use it) -Lots of connectivity (Displayport, HDMI, DVI, and audio out) -Stylish (really does look great on your desk) -Lots of desktop space (duh its a 27inch monitor) -I have experimented with everything ...
  • Cons: -No Remote (i really wish monitors of this size would come with a simple remote control) -Buttons (or lack there of) can be a little finicky -Monitor goes into sleep mode automatically when the current input is turned off (see other comments). -The screen actually sags just a bit making the left ...

3D glasses, a little but of a fraud

Roberto C., Newegg
11 February 2012
  • Pros: Nice monitor.
  • Cons: A remote control would have been useful. The online manual says this monitor will work with (cut/paste follows) ------------------------ You can purchase "SyncMaster-dedicated 3D glasses (model name: SSG-M3750CR)" separately. Contact the dealer you purchased the product from for details about pur...

Best 2d monitor around

Jason "JPM", Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I've owned now both the Asus VG278H and the Samsung S27A950D. There is no doubt that this monitor is excellent for 2d. The colors are fantastic and the fluidity of motion when playing games in 120hz is incredible. The design is elegant and right out of the box, this thing had no dead pixels.

  • Pros: Small bezel, 120hz

Its good but not great

Tyler P., Newegg
16 December 2011
  • Summary: I wouldnt buy into 3d yet. Another year. I mean its nice but not worth spending 3x the money. Probably worth 1.5x the money. The monitor as a 2d monitor is as nice as it gets really though.
  • Pros: Works well for videos. Works well for newer games. Not near as 3d as I was hoping for. Nothing comes out at you it just rounds stuff better, I mean it looks nice, nicer than 2d.
  • Cons: Videos can be choppy. Lots of oh wow thats cool moments and lots of oh wow thatd be cool if it wasnt doubled moments too. Games dont have much support. New games look good older games dont. Monitor loves to dim itself at random times. Considering an RMA for that. No remote either.

Its good but not great (addition)

Tyler P., Newegg
16 December 2011
  • Pros: The 3d does work for games you just need tridef. On the CD it has a link to download the tridef for samsung addon. Works with a fair amount of games. Looks great in the ones it works well with. Lags out Oblivion, crashed Kane and Lynch 2, but some others look real nice.
  • Cons: 3d isnt everything id hoped it to be. But whatever nicer than 2d.

Great monitor - terrible drivers

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2011
  • Summary: Overall I am happy with this purchase, although I ran into some issues getting the drivers installed. Make sure you run the install off of the disk, and as an administrator. I actually downloaded drivers from the Samsung website, but when I tried to install them they ended up not installing...
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality Extremely fast refresh rate Photo accuracy 3D capabilities
  • Cons: Driver software has tendency to not install easily Slight light bleed in lower right hand corner - apparently this is typical of this model
