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 review: Samsung SyncMaster T27A950

 

Samsung SyncMaster T27A950

The ; 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, the built-in speakers are...

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 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 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

Expensive

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!

HARDWARE REVIEW Samsung TA950 27

 

Steve May checks out a mini version of Samsung's high-end LED TVs

The LED backlighting, which runs up the left and right sides of the panel, is very even – a benefit of the smallish screen size
