Deleriously Happy Purchaser

Michael Flanagan, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I do photography as a hobby and have always been concerned with being able to see my photos on my monitor as I saw them through my eyes and through my Nikon Digital cameras and my Nikon Lenses (very high quality bodies and lenses). I have dual monitors and use an Epson 3000 printer. The printer allows me to use a large variety of photo papers to include rolls.

Lovely, just lovely.

IainC, Amazon

  • Summary: Manufacturers are falling over themselves to produce glossy-screen monitors. That's a shame, as I find it almost impossible to work in front of one - or more accurately, to work in front of all the reflections. This S27B971 is the matt-screened version of the well-reviewed, but glossy, S27B970. If you actually spend time working in front of the thing, rather than just looking at pictures occasionally, buy this one.

There a better alternatives

Mr. Dealer, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: Good: Nice design. Extra good black level due to the glossy surface. Bad: Price. Can only be used in a complete dark room or the glossy surface will reflect to mutch even with just a little bit of light in the room. Verdict: I had to return it, due to the reflect of the glossy surface. It is extremly overpriced compaired to other 1440p 27" monitors.

Nice product, at a steep price

SEJ, Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Fantastic monitor, although a bit too expensive at retail price. Same product as the Samsung S27B970D, although without the glossy glass panel giving a nice Matte finish. Personally I cant stand the insanely reflective glossy screens. Pros Features a PLS panel with great colours (better than IPS) Plently of connectivity options Factory panel calibration Touch sensitive buttons Beatiful design 2560x1440 resolution Cons Price Input lag/refresh rate if youre a hardcore...

Not a Product for UK

Damo, Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: Purchased on the 14th of September, monitor arrived on a Saturday as requested. Opened the box to find no UK plug, and as this is a new model of monitor it has its own power pack rather than the old monitor power cable. Using a European converter causes electrical interference and some worrying smells (despite trying 3 different converters). Informed Amazon of the issue and they decided to send a replacement monitor immediately while I arrange a day to send it back.

Samsung remove the glass panel, price remains stupidly expensive

D. May, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Firstly lets get Amazon's pathetic product description out of the way first. The Samsung S27B971D is the S27B970D without the reflective glass panel, opting for a matte black anti-glare finish. In every other respect it is the same monitor. I would suggest reading the product description for the S27B970D for more in-depth details - though it does neglect to mention some of the key things that everyone should look out for in a monitor: Pixel response: 5ms Input Lag: Class...

Bel écran mais fragile

Hassan L., Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bel écran pour travailler avec plusieurs fenêtres ouvertes. Design épuré pour ne pas occuper trop d'espace. Seul point négatif à ce jour : pixel rouge sur fond noir. J'espère que Samsung y remédiera très prochainement.

Guter Monitor aber mit Fehlern

Alex "A.S.", Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Vom Bild des Monitors war ich überrrascht. Gleichmäßige Ausleuchtung, keine Farbverzerrungen an den Rändern; Einfach gut. Die Verarbeitung ist sehr gut. Dass der Monitor sich nur Neigen und in der Höhe verstellen lässt, weiß man vorher. Auch positiv fand ich die Anschlußmöglichkeiten am Fuss der Monitors. Das Gerät hatte leider 2 Nachteile, die mich zum Rücksenden veranlasst haben: Paneltypbedingt sind bei einem Sitzabstand von ca.

BESTER MONITOR am NOTEBOOK

URSUS ARCTOS MIDDENDORFFI, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Dieser 27-Zoll-Monitor ist der beste Monitor als Anschluss am Notebook. Optimal und schnell und sehr zuverlässig mit PLUG-AND-PLAY-ANSCHLUSS. Die Bildübertragung ist einfach und schnell und qualitativ hervorragend sowohl am 15-Zoll-Notebook als auch am 17-Zoll-Notebook. Der Abstand des 27-Zoll-Monitors auf Armlänge oder ca. 60 bis 80 cm ist optimal für ein ermüdungsfreies Arbeiten mit hervorragenden Wiedergabewerten.

Monitor knackst und knistert.... Plastikschrott!

Crixus, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: *UPDATE*: Vom Bild her bin ich nach wie vor sehr zufrieden. Leider knackst und knistert das Gerät regelmäßig vor sich hin. Habe das Gerät danach an den Samsung Service übersendet, der nach kurzer Zeit das Problem als "Das ist normal." beschrieben hat. Käme von der Wärmeausdehnung des Gehäuses und wäre bei anderen Herstellern auch. Also mal ehrlich: Ich hatte bereits Monitore von Dell, Apple, HP und anderen und *KEINER* hat in diesem Ausmaß geknistert.
