Very impressed but lack of inputs mean it is NOT an all in one!

Summary: At the price of $1299 retail that the T27A950 cost a few years ago you can spend the same money today and buy three things: a 32 inch Samsung 1080P HDTV, a decent 27 inch Samsung PC Monitor and a Samsung BluRay/HD-wifi Smart Hub Player. Funny enough these the the very three things that this Samsung monitor promises to replace. My review will be based on whether or not this monitor does this.
Summary: I bought this precious about 4 weeks ago. Ive been into 3d gaming since E-Dimensional. I believe they were the first guys to use the shutter concept. Then nVidia started using their idea or baught it, dont know. But since nVidia specialises in GPUs and not screens they had to go into partnership with some company which makes screens. One of the most important factors in 3d screens is the refresh rate. The higher this the less strain on the eyes.
Summary: Samsung advertises this TV as picture in a picture (PIP). Do not order this TV if you are expecting to use your cable box or other inputs for the PIP. The PIP function only accepts coax connections thus no HD or modern cable box connection for PIP not to mention computer DVD or DVD player. My 7 year old Dell monitor allowed me to select whatever was connected to the Monitor/TV for PIP input. This is very disappointing and misleading by Samsung.
Summary: The Samsung T27A950 has had a slow transition from CES to retail availability. Touted as a flagship monitor, I was surprised at how little information was readily available from Samsung and third parties. At MSRP, this product is really hard to recommend, but like all leading-edge technology, prices drop off a bit over time. Even then, the value of the monitor is really up to if you really need the plethora of features that it offers.
Summary: First I must say this monitor is a looker, it is very thin with an artistic design that keeps all of the connections and features you want while looking great at the same time. Picture quality is very crisp and the back light is consistent across the whole screen making the color reproduction and consistency very good. With a 2ms response time games and video are both clear and crisp even under heavy action scenes.
Pros: Basically, CNET should have reviewed the S27A950D if they are going to place this in the monitor section. The one reviewed here is not optimized for a computer and therefore is worthless to compare to other monitors. The T is for those who want to use it

Pros: I have the 950D. Bought it from Amazon.com. The link on CNET's page points to the Amazon and they call it a straight 950 not a D. The back of my monitor shows model 950D. It has 1 HDMI, 1 DVI and 1 Displayport. The other model....the one in CNETs vi
Cons: Included TriDef software works with any video card in a side by side mode. However, the game settings will need to be reduced or else the game will crawl. Tridef software only works with Radeon 5000 series and above (I verified it does not work with a 4
