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.....ALSO, THERE IS A DING IN THE GLOSSY PLASTIC AREA TO THE LEFT OF THE CONTROL BUTTONS WHICK CAN BE NOTICED AT AN ANGLE MAKING MONITOR PLASTIC LOOK LIKE IT WAS DAMAGED BY THE SMALL DING, AS FOR THE 2-D TO 3-D...
Summary: I purchased this monitor through Tiger Direct for $599 last year and after finding a discolored pixel and backlight bleeding problems in the bottom right corner I sent it back for a replacement. The replacement monitor also had a discolored pixel in a different location as well as the backlight bleed problem.
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. Now for the bad: It's terrible for 3d. Tri-Def software is hit or miss, it's not 3d vision ready, and getting 3d to work is a pain.
Summary: THIS WAS NOT PURCHASED THROUGH AMAZON. Had some problems with amazon so I ended up ordering it from TD. 120HZ This is REAL 120hz, not the 120/240hz interpolation that big box HDTV brands advertise. With that said, 120hz means the image is refreshed at a rate of 120 times a second rather than your standard 60. The image displayed will be incredibly smoother and look more natural. It is also important to note that this monitor uses DVI-D/HDMI/Display Port (google this).
Great monitor---product shown on this page is not the "D"

Summary: First, Amazon may have their products mixed up. There is a regular 950 and a 950D. If you check, you will see what Amazon has labeled as the 950 here: [...] There is also nearly $100 price difference between these. One model comes with a coaxial input, a TV tuner, two HDMI inputs, Samsung Apps and many other connections. This 950 only comes with 1 HDMI, 1 Display port, and 1 dual link DVI plus a headphone jack and does not come with Samsung Apps.
Summary: I like this monitor i wanted a good 2d monitor for smooth video and gaming, frustratingly to get 120hz you must buy a 3d display. Right There is colour bleed on blacks on both sides especially the bottom right where the hinge attaches it is within acceptable limits ( to me ) though. Text looks slightly less sharp than it did on my old 19 inch samsung I'm guessing this is due to the size increase though or even my graphics card.
Summary: Got this monitor for a steal from elive.co.nz for only $360 as it was factory refurbished. Came with a 18 month warranty (usually 3 years) and in immaculate condition. Arrived in a surprisingly large box with some comfortable Samsung 3D shutter glasses and all the cables you need to get it started. The monitor itself is a unique design which I have grown to like.
Summary: Ekranin cok parlak olmasindan dolayi alirken tereddut yasadim ama parlaklik degerini arttirarak arkadan gelen isigi ciddi derecede onluyor, Zaten hangi monitor olursa olsun gunes arkadan monitorun uzerine gelirse goremezsiniz. En buyuk eksisi monitoru yatirirken veya yukseltirken her an elimde kalacak korkusu olmasi.
