Samsung Series 9 S27B970D


Samsung has been producing slick-looking monitors for years, from their Touch of Color T220HD up to the more recent T27A950 hybrid model. Its latest effort, the Samsung Series 9 S27B970D ($1,199.99 list), continues to impress. With edge-to-edge glass,...

Excellent color quality. Good light grayscale performance. Wide viewing angles. Sleek design

Expensive. Reflective coating. Lacks a dedicated audio input

The Samsung Series 9 S27B970D is an aesthetically stunning 27-inch monitor that delivers an equally stunning picture. You?ll pay a premium for this PLS display, however.

Samsung SyncMaster S27B970D 27" Series 9 Super PLS LED Monitor Review


Once you lift the Series 9 S27B970D Super PLS monitor out of the box, you can feel the heft that is 18.04lbs. Most of the weight is really coming from the stand, because it's not only being used as a base.

This is an interesting review. You must take all of the comments I made from start to finish and form your own conclusions that suits your own personal preferences. When compared to the Series 8 S27A850D, it has the same type of Super PLS technology on...

HDMI 1.4a does support WQHD


DVI-D, Display Port and HDMI all support WQHD.

I love the glossy screen & glass coating but others I know will not. The glass coating at least is not marketed, so many potential buyers may not be aware of it. Brushed aluminum chassis is elegant & not especially heavy

No mounting solutions. I only removed an egg, however, because this is not explicitly stated anywhere that I could find. Have to return it, as I - and other flight & racing simmers - use monitor stands with VESA mounts for use with gaming cockpits ;...

Best Windows Monitor


This is the best windows monitor I've ever had. I really didn't know what to expect for a monitor costing so much but because I've always had really good service with Samsung over the past 20years it made it easier to make this decision, and boy was I...

Best Monitor EVER!


I am a computer geek and a gamer. This monitor is part of my high end gaming PC upgrade. I am extremely picky when it comes to computers and especially monitors. I have to say that this is the BEST 2560X1440 monitor out there. I've done research for...

Exceptional detail and clarity in both images and videos ; The resolution is out of this world ; Build quality is very nice ; LOVE the glossy screen

Samsung quality control with this monitor

Was stuck with a 21", sloppy, blue-tinted mess for 5 years. Getting this is like getting a new pair of eyes. It\'s all the spectacular color and resolution of Apple\'s monitors with a decent refresh rate for gaming. If you have the money, you wont be...

After extensive research on various 1440p options, I chose to go with this monitor. I am very glad I did! This was practically an entire paycheck, but totally worth it.

This monitor is beautiful in every way ; The design of the exterior is excellent. Many other 1440p monitors are black behemoths, but this monitor is aesthetically appealing and looks great on my desk ; When I ordered my screen, it was flawless ; Not a...

Cost, but you get what you pay for ; Not really a con, but you need serious GPU power to play games in this resolution. I have two EVGA 570s, and I can no longer max out games like Crysis 2, Witcher 2, Metro 2033, and even modded Skyrim ; This is...

Fantastic display


This is a fantastic professional grade monitor. Photo, video and games look amazing and much truer than any other LCD / LED display I have used including the Dell professional and Apple displays. The native resoltuon may be excessive for the average...

1. Excellent color out of the box, adjustable to personal preference. Blacks are deep and smooth ; 2. No dead / stuck pixels - no defects at all ; 3. Stylish and sleek ; 4. Came with all necessary cables and optional ones ; 5. Crisp still images and...

1. No swivel (all of the connectors go into the base, might explain the lack of swivel.)
