    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    The cable it came with is dual-link DVI, so it can deliver 120hz at 1080p, so you don't need a Display Port cable -- unless of course your video card does not support dual link DVI. In which case get a Display Port cable from monoprice.com

    ASUS VG278H in October?

    Is this screen glossy or matt?

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    If your to too picky about backlight bleeding, it's a phenomenal monitor. I am assuming you like glossy screens and your video card has a Displayport output.

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    It's weird, my replacement glasses say SSG-3100GB like yours, but the box from the pair that came with my monitor says SSG-M3150GB. BUT curiously they both have the same "Part Code" which is "BN96-18236A". Don't trust a word that Samsung says; their CSR's are clueless about this product. I...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Ok, I finally figured out how to get replacement glasses. Don't go by the model number on the glasses themselves (SSG-3100GB), it is wrong. The right number is on a sticker on the glasses box: SSG-M3150GB. These are the only glasses that will work properly with these monitors. Believe me, I...

    If anyone has 3 of these monitors in Eyefinity and wants to sell one of the extra pairs of 3D glasses, PM me. My 5 year old broke mine beyond repair.

    Vega, I have an S27A950d and my 5 yr old daughter broke the glasses. I tried buying the same model glasses off Amazon, but they don't work as well as the original ones did. Could I buy one of your extra glasses? If yes, name the price and I'll paypal you. Neil

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I have a pair of 6970's, but alas Crossfire is not supported for 3D yet, so I have to disable Crossfire when I play in 3D. I asked ATI when they would support it and they would only say they are working on it. They need a more people in their driver development group IMO. Nvidia spanks ATI in...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I got the 27" and I am glad I did. The large size is great for 3d immersion. Text is sharp. Jaggies are not bothersome in games as long as you have the horse power to do 4x or 8x anti-aliasing. One thing though, I heard pro FPS gamers prefer around 23 inches so they can see the whole screen...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I only tried the realtime 2D to 3D conversion on my first one and I got a bad color shift. Whites became a light yellowish-brown and colors became desaturated in general. Maybe it was just my settings. In any case the 3D depth seemed to pretty shallow. Playing at 120hz in 2D seemed to me to be a...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I only noticed the Flickering pixels on mine when I had a white window in the middle of the screen up like the Tridef game launcher. Resizing the window bigger and smaller continuously seemed to show the problem more clearly.

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Any ATI card can do it. It's in the Tridef software; check out the help screen. There are several settings you can tweak during game play. IIRC you hit shift-Alt period, or shift-Alt comma to change the percentage of the image in front of the screen. Another thing you can change is the overall...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Ok, so I got an S27A950D from Newegg and the box had clearly been opened before. The screen had finger prints on it, but the accessories looked new. It worked fine except it intermittently had flickering pixels running down the center of the screen. You have to look closely to notice it; it's a...

    nvidia 3D vs 2d surround

    I tried the surround thing. Got motion sick in 5 min. Then I got the s27a950 and it's great once you learn how to tune the 3D to reduce crosstalk. Even if the 3d effect gets old for me, the 120hz 2D is also awesome. I would never go back to 60hz 2D. It's a great monitor if you don't mind...

    My first two had this flicker pixels problem. So far I have not seen it on the third one, but I have only used it for an hour. I'll report back after more usage.

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I've got 2 s27a950d's ATM and they both have the flickering pixels in the middle of the screen. It only happens sometimes and it's pretty hard to see. I'm have dual 6980's, win 7 64 bit, 11.5b drivers. Anyone one else this problem? I only see it against a white background. It seems to happens...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    You can turn on a special cross-hair sight that is generated by the Tridef software. It's just a red dot, but it should work well enough. You can change the size of the dot. You could try the 11.8 preview drivers and see if crossfire works now.

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Using some of the settings advice in NCX's review I was able to basically eliminate cross-talk in Dragon Age II and Dirt2. The key is to move the percentage of the image in front of the screen to somewhere in the 85% to 90% range. I love how much control they give you over the 3D settings. I...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    The monitor comes with a heavy duty dual link DVI cable. Just use that. I am using the 11.5b hotfix drivers and they work great with the exception of no support for crossfire (I have two 6970's). Since you just have one card, just stick with the 11.5b drivers and the dual link DVI cable and...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    I checked the cross talk on mine again this morning with Dragon Age. The cross talk is definitely worse at the top 20% of the screen. I tested it in a dark room so I could not really see the bezel, so I am sure it's not because my eyes are seeing the bezel and losing the 3d effect. Anyone...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Ok, I have sorted it out. It's the top 15% to 20% of the screen that has the bad ghosting. Anything below that is fine except for the very bottom. Changing viewing angle does not help. I wonder why the ghosting is worse at the top?

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Worked for me. There was a fair bit of ghosting in both eyes imo. Dragon Age II looks better. Hard to say if the right eye was was worse than the left on that video.

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    It's the same when I use the monitor's 2D to 3D conversion. I don't have any way to test 3D movies atm. I am playing Dragon Age II and it looks fantastic! This monitor has so much potential, if I can just get a good one. For those thinking of buying one, you may want to wait until they...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Got an S27A950D the day before yesterday. The good: 2D is great. Very smooth. The relative: Contrast ratio is ok, but would be nice if it were better; bias lighting basically solves it. The bad: ghosting in right eye is a bit too much. I turned the glasses upside down to confirm that it...

    Samsung S27A950D 120Hz

    Smart. Me, I couldn't resist. OTOH I called Newegg they they said they would replace it for any reason within the first 30 days for any subjective defect I could find. And they would pay the shipping too. That and an estimated one day for shipping pushed me over the edge.

    Could someone would a 120hz monitor do a test for me?

    Is anyone else as amazed as I am that the 120Hz displays are not doing better than 60Hz displays on this test? I was thinking about getting the S27A950, but now I am not so sure. Can anyone with an S27A950 please run this test?
