more reliable than its previous model

 

the 550V is every bit the same thin monitor as the 350H; however, the 550V is not reddish in the frame, and offers no more connectivity ports in the back. The improved part is that this monitor has no flaky behavior as it predecessor which tends to...

Middle of the road

 

This is a pretty good monitor for the prices. If you are looking for really high performance or other features you will have to pay more. Its a great general use monitor. Does everything pretty well but nothing great. Monitor does not tilt which I was...

Excellent Monitor

 

The guy who wrote the 1 star review obviously doesn't understand monitors very well because he wrote LED technology isn't there yet so he went back to buying LCD monitors, that makes no sense. LED is the type of backlighting used as opposed to CCFL and...

Colors that come alive, the picture difference from your old monitor will be immediately noticable

None really except as with all technology you wish the price was lower

Big Bang For The Buck

 

I was thinking about being a VESA wall mount for the monitor thinking there was no tilt, but it can tilt up to 20 degrees backward.

I love the size of the monitor. I think it's just right for 1920x1080 for a desktop monitor (I honestly think smaller monitors in the 19-22" range are a bit small for 1920x1080), and the price was definitely right for such a large monitor ; Has exactly...

The onboard speakers are absolutely atrocious. I don't count this as a con because I was never planning to use the onboard speakers anyway, and as mentioned in the pros section, I wanted to have the HDMI in carry sound out through a 3.5mm audio out...

OK Monitor

 

Text is not as sharp as my 10 year old Samsung. When on highest resolution that is supported (1900) will not fill the screen even with a 2gb GDDR 5 video card.

Zero dead pixels, ran all test passed. Extreme high definition. A monster gaming and video monitor. No ghosting. No bleed thru ; If you have an issue register at Samsung dot kom and call 800 tech support they are great, fast and helpful. I would highly...

Stand is a little small for a 27 inch monitor, not much adjust ability except tilt. But I set it on my desk and I leave it alone so no problems ; The on screen menu and button take just a little to get used to to use quickly. After I get my set up and...

I got this for one of our programmers. She's using one 27 in place of two 20's. The picture is bright and clear - perfect!
