Summary: I have had this monitor/TV for 6 months and i must say that i have no problems with its use as a pc monitor. I have it hooked up to my laptop via hdmi and after making the adjustments to correct the blurred text i never ever have to look at my laptop screen. As a matter of fact i've gotten used to the monitor so much that it almost hurts to look at my laptop screen.
Summary: The Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD rates high in the area of display resolution in both VGA and HDMI. I am using it as a second display for a laptop. It is very easy to set up to clone displays or extend desktop. However I am disatisfied with the part of the pedestal which connects to the monitor which makes it difficut to manuever the HDTV/monitor into a position of liking. It is only about 2" wide and the pedestal and arm are all made of plastic.
Summary: There is nothing wrong with this monitor at all, I think the user ratings and cnet ratings are off a bit. I thought the menu system was incredibly extensive, it had lots of picture tweaks, almost as much as my Samsung UN55C8000 TV. I don't notice any greenish tint at all after tweaking the settings to a recommended setting I found from googling. At $260 I don't think there is a better 27" option at all.
Pros: -The main thing that matters, Picture quality, is great., -It's big, -It's relatively cheap ( I got mine for $260 one day when I saw it on shopper.cnet.com/deals)
Cons: -I Had to do some serious picture tweaking. When I say serious, I mean about 30 minutes of googling and playing with settings., -Sound quality is poor (who expected it not to be poor)
Summary: I like Samsung displays. This one is very good. I use mainly as a PC monitor but have watched TV on it as well. Pros: Very clear bright screen. Viewing area and styling are very good. Cons: Too Much Bezel, Takes too long to switch between inputs. Takes too long to turn on and off. I would purchase this again. The price was right although it had been cheaper when I first noticed the monitor.
Summary: I don't watch TV on this monitor. I have it connected to my Mac Pro Nehalem for photography, audio production, film editing, and the internet. The resolution, clarity, and color is spot on! The only reason I wouldn't give this 5 stars is because the monitor's stand is very wobbly. It was a poor design decision as the weight does not distribute evenly. It just does not feel sturdy and safe. The monitor wobbles upon even the slightest jolt.
Summary: The clarity has Samsung's signature quality. Sound is great, clean, clear and you can play with the settings to custom to your liking. The only complaint is there aren't enough HDMI connections for all my high definition components.
