MIGUEL MIRANDA, Amazon

  • Summary: Very high standard monitor but yes is expensive and is not 4k if you want something that look nice good quality good resolution fast monitor and you don't care about the price this maybe is for you. But i have to admit that there are some cheaper and almost same quality monitors. also the connectors at the back are a bit hard to reach them they are to close one for the other.

Speakers and needed components

P. Noga, Amazon

  • Summary: 1) the picture quality with DVI can go to 2560 x 1440 but is ONLY AS GOOD as your video card. I have an older Dell and can get the 2560 x 1440, but the picture looks more stretched than clean. It is not as sharp as i would like. 2) THE MONITOR HAS SPEAKERS IN IT, BUT NO PLACE TO PLUG IT IN. Strange. After finally reading the manual, it says about the speakers "the volume can be adjusted if the input source is DisplayPort or HDMI...." There is no port for a speaker plug.

A POTENTIALLY fantastic monitor.

  • Summary: I have every belief that this monitor will be tremendous. With this monitor you need two important things: a top of the line graphics card and preferably DisplayPort 1.2 cables.
  • Pros: Could be the best monitor available.
  • Cons: 1) the picture quality with DVI can go to 2560 x 1440 but is ONLY AS GOOD as your video card., 2) This computer uses the DP or HDMI cable to transmit the audio signal to the monitor speakers. There is no speaker or headphone plug on the monitor.

Excellent design and function

DL, Amazon

  • Summary: I must say that I love this monitor. To consider that it is QHD with excellent color is good in and of itself. Then, you factor in the good looks and it starts to make sense. Design-wise, some aspects could be done better, such as the faux metal bar on the back. The monitor is also relatively thin for its type. However, the package as a whole is at least a four out of five. It is easily one of the best (If not the best) looking qhd 27 in monitors out right now.

Great monitor, still have its problems

Hovo S. Menej "Saik", Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: So I will mention the bad things, just accept that the rest is just great. I bought and returned 5 of this monitors in 1 week from different stores. 4 of them had dust particles stuck under the glass one of them had a dead pixel. I was so tired that I gave up and keep the monitor which have a dust under the glass. I dont know wtf is wrong with Samsung's quality control. Usually they are good. the white is still does not look right.

Immense!

Neil Hart, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: This monitor is outrageous. I have a 50 inch screen in the room, but this dominates by its sheer physical presence. However good you think it looks in the pictures, it is better in the flesh. It's one of those products that all who see it are drawn too. The quality of image is great at native resolution, but also surprisingly good at 1080p too. The response is fast, and the auto-calibration works well.

Great monitor, too bad the panels aren't flawless

Mikey94025, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: If I had a Mac I would've gotten an Apple Thunderbolt display, but instead us PC owners are left with a variety of less-than-perfect alternatives for a high-end/high-quality 27" display -- this Samsung, , , ). The Amazon reviews for these products are all very revealing but a bit mixed so satisfaction is not as guaranteed as with the Apple displays.

  • Summary: pros: - nice picture quality, but still not as good as the Apple Cinema Display) - good build quality cons: - kind of pricey - some nice features missing compared to the smaller brother (S27A850D), such as USB 3 Hub, swivel / pivot function & picture in picture (parallel view of two connected desktops)
