Me too, same as above ;).


Best 3D 120hz monitor available at the moment!

Really love this monitor when I'm using it =D ; Big, clear, colors/colors are A+ =), 120hz for gaming (I can never go back to 60hz, 120hz is just basically seeing your enemy or not seeing your enemy ;)(60hz))

About $500 AU, but worth every cent =)

I love this Monitor. Beautiful is an understatement.


My favorite by far. So thin and elegant it is my choice for the office bar none..

Performance is top notch and capabilities, well it has all of them from picture to 3d to TV it is the coolest to be had. Next stop ultra high res. but not until later 2013 when there will be content that will use it

Does not swivel

failed effort


nice video from hd files

almost impossible to switch inputs. touch screen unresponsive and area to switch inputs sandwiched between four other icons. display port doesn't work. Samsung said send it back for repair at my cost and six months to get it back

Bob Tpain. There are no monitors on this site that advertise refresh rates higher than 120. So where is this monitor you speak of? As far as this costing more than it's closest competition which is only 1 an Acer. Which doesn't even offer 2D to 3D...

Everything in the description

Great Monitor


I bought this monitor, the shipping and delivery was on time. The monitor itself is crisp clear, the 2D-3D conversion is okay, but the 2D is phenomenal.

It is the best monitor I have had in years. Been upgrading every year or so and seem to me I won't need to upgrade this one for a long time to come. Great buy must have for gaming...

Clean, Stylish


I'm really hoping to get quite a few years out of this monitor and at this point I'm very well satisfied with its performance. Like others I bought it for the high refresh rate rather than the 3D functionality, so I can't really comment on it. Still,...

Very clear image and better than passable color reproduction. In a few weeks of regular use I have yet to notice any distortion or defects ; Double the standard refresh rate and a fast response time make motion look liquid-smooth. In comparison my...

First, the glossy screen does provide me with some of my own reflection. It takes some pretty bright lighting to make it really noticeable, but it's there. The black plastic bits are also pretty good dust-magnets ; Second, the stand is tilt-adjustable...

Great Monitor


Cant get a better monitor sub 2560 x 1440 resolution. Best non IPS, PLS on the market. Go for it. 120 hz, is awesome. Only other competition is Samsung Series 9 Monitor. But I went with the safer gaming option. Would I had done better spending 3x the...

Great Colors ; Great build quality ; 120hz ; Very Sharp ; Awesome for gaming

Not a higher resolution ; The 3D could be Nvidia 3d 2 but I knew that before hand. Would had made a better experience. But it's usable for whatever 3d gaming is usable ; Really my only complaint is that its not higher resolution

Love this monitor


I love this monitor - I will definitely buy another. Whether for gaming or digital artwork for work, or just watching HD movies the picture on this monitor looks better than any other monitor or TV I've ever seen. I have a 20" IPS monitor next to it on...

Amazing picture clarity and brightness ; Amazing color gamut - best I've seen ; 120Hz refresh rate make motion extremely smooth

Front Controls are a bit awkward
