Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 3D Display Review


WHEN SAMSUNG DEMOED the T27A950 for us a few months back, we got excited. This 27-inch, 120Hz display looks sleek and sophisticated, and it offers a long list of features, including an onboard digital HDTV tuner, picture-in-picture capability,...

Pricey; highly reflective; difficult to calibrate; fancy stand offers few adjustments

Samsung T27A950


The Samsung T27A950 is a slick looking 27-inch desktop monitor that pulls double duty as a 3D-ready HDTV, but it doesn't come cheap.

Solid image quality. Stylish design. 3D capable. Web apps included

Expensive. Weak light-grayscale performance. 3D conversion quality is lacking. No DVI or VGA ports

Samsung SyncMaster T27A950


At two points earlier this year I got a chance to see the Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 under controlled conditions. Each time the monitor wowed me with its glossy presentation of movies with deep blacks, brilliant color, and a seemingly very high...

The Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 looks damn sexy with a smooth, sleek silver finish and a striking design. The monitor's OSD and Smart Hub options are plentiful and useful, movies look great on it, and it includes 3D support for movies and games. Also,...

3D performance in games on the monitor is disappointing, with no DVI dual-link connection included. Also, its price is high for a TN display

The Samsung SyncMaster T27A950 is an HDTV/monitor meant for movies and TV with tons of features and a beautiful design, but some will find its price too high.

Samsung T27A950 HDTV Monitor


Samsung's new HDTV and monitor hybrid the T27A950 is quite a bit more than just a pretty face. Behind its super slim carved bezel is a 1920 x 1080, 3D equipped monitor with 3ms response time and 27″ of widescreen goodness. That's right, this monitor...

Great performance ; Excellent presentation ; Rich in features ; Excellent construction


And then, now we’re at the end! We look at quite a number of monitors here and though monitors are always fun, beyond simply progression of display technology they’re also not particularly exciting, usually. I mean, they display stuff, right?

Samsung T27A950 LED Monitor Review


If looks could sell....

Stunning looks; decent number of ports

poor color production; bad viewing angles; avg. 3D performance; no DVI or VGA; very expensive

The Sm@rt Hub must be accessed via the Internet of course, for which you will either need to pull a LAN cable or connect through Samsung’s WiFi dongle, which is not included in the package – quite a bummer for its price!

Samsung SyncMaster T27A950D


The Samsung SyncMaster T27A950D is a 27-inch 3D HDTV that also doubles as a computer monitor. It has a sleek, unique design that will please everyone and quality is actually really good. It also has built-in speakers and a remote control for added...

CNET reviewed the wrong monitor...


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

Other than the price, nothing

An excellent 3D TV/Monitor


I bought this so I can watch Home and Away and view my Photos in 3D with the 3D Converter also with the 3D Converter I can watch normal TV in 3D as well.

I love 3D and I am a huge fan of it

Netflix won't activate and it doesn't come with Wi-Fi

CNET should make sure they have the correct model #


This is a great monitor. Very expensive. Very confusing naming scheme....CNET needs to verify. Updated on Sep 3, 2011

I have the 950D. Bought it from **********. 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

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

Best looking monitor... ever


if you,ve got the money to put up for this monitor, do it. I used to have an apple cinema display and i think that for $200 less this has 15x more features than the apple.

Looks great, lots of connections, I personally love the 3d, super clear, and im a huge fan of the magic angle. Also i love smart tv

Netflix wont activate and it dosent come with wifi. not too bad considering i use ethernet, and no mac support for 3d gaming
