Summary: Nice monitor, and the colors are extremely vibrant. Stand works nicely for me. The other reviewers were correct, 27 inches is very large for this pixel count; so if you are sitting close to the monitor, as you typically are when using it with a computer, there is more noticeable graininess versus a 23/24 inch monitor. But, it is great if you use your monitor for viewing from a few feet back.
Works well enough; speakers are tolerable at best.

Summary: This came in just as a ancient TV quit, so we put it up on the wall as a replacement for the time being. Every time it is turned on, the first thing you notice is that the speakers don't sound all that great - but they're not so bad that it lasts long. The viewing angle is much more limited that the specs led me to believe, or I didn't pay that much attention believing this would be sitting on a desk. How sharp is it?
Summary: This was a replacement for Viewsonic VX2753MH-LED 27-Inch LED Monitor, which was DOA. The Samsung was simple to set up, has good quality picture. I don't care for the controls, difficult to see the "buttons". I would recommend this.
Summary: Really like the display. Only problem I have is that the stand is not strong enough to support it properly. If you tilt the screen back, it won't stay, so it is always in the "fully tilted forward" position.
Summary: Overall, I am impressed with this Samsung monitor. As an owner of two Samsung HDTV's I tried this monitor as an alternate to an expensive Apple 27" Thunderbolt display or 27" Dell monitor. I have to say that I am impressed with the overall quality for the price. If you are on a budget this is a great display to get while you save up for the higher end models. This monitor works great with my new retina display macbook pro.
Good Product but the Used Status of Very Good overlooks some negatives!

Summary: Product Plus: A straight forward PC monitor with a solid picture that was up and running in seconds - required no fiddling about with resolution settings experienced with other similar products. Built in speakers an improvement on laptop sound! Product Negative: Menu is a fiddly 'touch' on the barely visible legend on the screen bezel - if you have a Samsung TV chance is it is the same method!
Summary: I am in the process of returning my second monitor of this model as it has developed the same fault as my first one. The on/off button has stopped working but the monitor can be turned on or off with the menu button, very strange. I am sorry to see it go back as it is a great monitor apart from that fault, obviously a Samsung ongoing fault as a friend of mine sent her Samsung S27B750VS back to Amazon with the very same fault.
Summary: A very nice monitor for the money. Easy to set up - was up and running in 15 minutes. Good quality picture with plenty of options for adjusting the settings as you require - initial settings have it at 100 for brightness which I found a bit much. Reasonable enough sound from the built in speakers - I've heard tv sets with worse. Stand is about as basic as they come, but for ca £40 you could invest in a replacement that would give some movement to the monitor if needed.
