Summary: Just bought a new laptop, and hooked up trusty P2770H. Desktop is wider than the screen, and the monitor menus don't work with Windows 10. There doesn't seen to be any updated Samsung drivers for Windows 10.
Summary: Might have been useful in to read in the initial review that widescreen and full screen modes doen't work with a PC or laptop.
Pros: None. Really, for a pc or laptop, absolutely none.
Cons: 16:9 ratio for a pc or laptop means the 27" screen is a waste of aobut 6" all around. What's the point of a big screen if it you can't use it? Oh, and set up with my Toshiba laptop? Pain in the *ss. Get ready for a help-desk call!
Summary: A lot of people used the source -> edit name workaround for their PCs and this does work fine for PCs. For an Xbox however, it mutes all of the colors. Also, putting those options in a totally separate and seemingly unrelated menu is counter-intuitive and unhelpful.
Pros: Decent PC monitor. After some tweaking it worked nicely as a second screen for my laptop.
Cons: Wish this had worked out differently. Based on my experiences, this monitor is not good for console gaming. The Xbox 360 never quite looked right despite trying different 360s and cables.

Summary: I would think long and hard about purchasing from this company. Deals seem good until you have any type of problem
Pros: looked good until I plugged it in, first time had a dead pixel
Cons: Dead pixel, Then new egg makes me pay 20 dollars to ship it back, Why did I purchase from them? Oh yeah, I thought I was going to be saving money. Now I don't have a screen, I am out an additional 20 bucks and I have to wait for almost another 2 weeks to get this replaced.
Pros: Good picture, lots of configurable options and multiple inputs... when it works
Cons: I have had nothing but problems with this monitor. When I first purchased it, there were dead pixels. Samsung replaced it. The second monitor, less than a month later, I'm getting small red vertical lines, for no reason. Power off the monitor and turn it back on... the lines are gone. Ten minutes...
