Nice Monitor!

Sandra C., Newegg
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I use this monitor to play PS3 (CoD BO2, Super Street Fighter 4, Tekken Tag Tornament 2) and PC (BF3, CS:GO, Far Cry 3, Diablo 3, Tomb Raider and Guild Wars 2) I have had no issues with this monitor and I have use it for almost a year now.
  • Pros: Spectacular Colors (need a little adjustment first but then Voilá) No pixel burns or anything. Awesome response time. No visible input lag. (No ghosting whatsoever) Nice viewing angles although it doesn't have an IPS screen.
  • Cons: NO DVI (it is a freaking monitor, not a television why not a DVI port) It doesn't have height adjustment. Stand feels a little bit flimsy. Again, no DVI port.

Great Value

  • 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.

Vibrant colors, but big for this pixel count.

19 February 2013
  • 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...

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.

Great monitor.....stand is not as great

cadguy49, Amazon

  • 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.

Good Monitor

  • 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.

Good monitor, bad software!

Brandon T., Newegg
16 July 2012
  • Summary: Don't let my con scare you, this is a really great monitor overall, just a few software issues, most users might not even install the software anyway.
  • Pros: Works great, looks great, easy to use OSD. Super fast 2ms response, non glossy screen good for well lighted household areas.
  • Cons: Not the best color reproduction, but good for its pricerange. Be very careful if you're using a GTX 670/680/690. DO NOT install magic tune. You will get a Red screen of death. Although this is easily fixed with restarting into safe-mode and running msconfig to turn it off at start-up, this may be...

No such thing as a perfect monitor, but for a 1080p gamer under $400, this is ideal.

Jason K., Newegg
27 April 2012
  • Summary: Still debating if I want to keep it or get right of it. Disappointed in the audio issues and buzzing noise. Lack of DVI + not properly using HDMI for audio is a disappointment but one that I can live with. Really deserves 3.5 eggs, but I rounded up because of my overall favorable opinion.
  • Pros: This monitor has a lot of options in the user-friendly OSD (on-screen display). It has similar video quality to my old Samsung T220, which is a good thing. It's in the upper echelon in terms of 6-bit TN panels, but nothing that will blow your socks off. I had to go through two of these monitors (...
  • Cons: The main problem I have with this display is that if you use the built-in speakers AND turn down the brightness below 96-ish (full brightness will burn out your retinas!), the monitor emits a faint buzzing noise. This occurred in both monitors that I used (the reason for my return). This buzzing ...
