Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D

 

For those of us without disposable incomes, spending more than a couple hundred dollars on a monitor requires a little justification. When it comes to expensive monitors, there's usually a professional justification, as professional graphics artists...

The Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D delivers great overall performance, and has a useful assortment of connections, including three USB 3.0 ports. The monitor's stylish but practical design provides many ergonomic options.

Compared with other professional monitors, the S27A850D lacks a few OSD configuration details. Also, HDMI would have been useful.

The Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D is a well-designed, stylish, professional monitor with great options and performance.

Samsung S27A850 LED Ultra HD Monitor

 

Samsung is no stranger to the LCD market. They make LCD panels that set the bar for others to follow and in fact are the ones making the displays for Apple's new iPad. They know how to cram a bunch of pixels onto a panel and the screen we are looking...

High resolution - 2560x1440 ; 3x USB 3.0 Ports ; Lots of height adjustment ; Display can rotate ; Multiple inputs ; Good color quality

Construction feels a little cheap ; No Display Port Cable ; Premium price for the extra resolution

There is probably a lot more we could cover with the S27A850 LCD from Samsung - such as USB 3.0 port speed and such. In the end, if you're buying this 2560x1440 panel, you are probably buying it for the resolution and not the USB functionality. The...

Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D review

 

We don't normally review monitors that cost over £500, but Samsung's S27A850D is no ordinary monitor; as well as an impressive features list - a 2,560x1,440 resolution, fully-adjustable stand and three-way USB3 hub - it's the first monitor we've seen...

The S27A850D's adjustable stand, USB3 hub and 2,560x1,440 resolution are all very good, but it's the new PLS panel, with its amazing contrast and colours, that steals the show

Samsung S27A850D (SA850 27in)

 

The first PLS monitor is a slim 27in model with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution and features galore.

Generally good image quality ; 2,560 x 1,440 resolution ; Decent value ; Fully adjustable ; Generous connectivity

Contrast shift ; Fiddly controls ; No HDMI

Though it’s not quite the perfect evolution we were hoping for, we’re still impressed by Samsung’s brand-new 27in PLS-based monitor. It's slim and fairly well-built, and has generous connectivity, class-leading adjustability and innovative features...
