A large screen computer monitor puts all your files in reach and in view.
8 July 2013
Summary: I have previous experience with a 27" Samsung SyncMaster LED Monitor and know the brand and the large screen monitor experience. Anyone who writes a lot and uses source documents will like the ability to put a draft Word or Excel document next to source documents while working. A 27" work space is easy on the eyes and allows quick and easy access to source documents or files.
Summary: There is a bad batch of these monitors floating around... I ordered two and both are bad. The monitors flicker then turn off after a short time (seconds to minutes). When the monitors work they look good, but its very frustrating to have to unplug and re-plug them in all the time!
Summary: I've purchased two of these. One of them I had to RMA though. There was an issue where it didn't want to fully "boot" up (yes... the monitor...) It was almost like the monitor had to warm up. The 2nd monitor has only 1 off color pixel in the corner. The replacement monitor is perfect though. For the price, I would buy them again, and Amazon RMA is awesome.
Summary: I thing is for sure: editing pictures on a 27" display is much better. I'll start with one thing I don't like about it: the OSD control sensors. They only seem to react when touched in specific conditions. By the time I figured out where and how to put my finger on, the OSD window disappears and I have to start all over again. The good news is that the monitor comes with a driver/software allowing you to make the adjustments much easier, using your mouse.
Summary: I bought this monitor after my 5 year old Samsung 22" monitor died of a bad back light. It hooked right up and provides a much larger screen. The factory settings are a little bright but can be adjusted down. I found the viewing angle tilted too far forward so I'm propping it up with a 3/4" shim, which works well.
