Yes, but i saw a user review that stated the picture in 3D was dark and the glasses use a battery, and they go dead within 10-12.I just got one of these on a promo $650 USD (normally $850 or more here in rip off NZ) or so, must say i am mighty impressed, and the 3d is quite fun especially Batman AC, not 100% sold on design but 120hz for competitive fps games works a treat.
I did just that, the 2D 120hz processing is pretty much the monitor's standout feature. The processing is sublime, the most near-CRT I've seen since my old 21" SONY CRT. I would not go back to 60hz, period. The viewing angle is inferior to IPS panels though, if you sit fairly close to it as I do you see a ever so slight horizontal variance between grey shades... The worst example is the forum index on this very site... You can see that the grey towards the bottom washes out just a tad. In normal use and gaming you dont notice.so what is the verdict on this monitor? I'm interested in it mainly for 2D 120hz, thinking about leaving my IPS bubble and taking a leap =p
I don't like setting the HDMI to low, it crushes blacks and virtually destroys shadow detail. I don't like any sharpness setting other than the default 60 either, setting it below that makes text look smeared and setting it higher looks ugly.Have had this monitor for a week. Was initially worried about poor QC, light/dark spots, dead pixels or other anomalies on screen, but everything is good. Was also worried about the glossy screen, reflections in my room (window behind me) but thats OK too. Yes, it is reflective as hell, but screen is bright and vivid enough for me to 'see through' the reflections and not be bothered by them. I've seen a small amount of light bleed in lower right corner, but it is very small and insignificant. This is probably the most near perfect LCD monitor I have bought in terms of absence of flaws, screen consistency and uniformity.
Quite striking image quality once settings adjusted. Final settings: 40-80-52 for B-C-S and 40-40-40 for RGB. HDMI on low (normal gives blacks a slightly washed out look), on low blacks are more accurate and agreeable to me. Gamma mode 3, response set to 'faster'.
Was not bothered by dot pitch, resolution for size, have tried a friends p2770hd and that was OK to me. My last monitor was a 25.5" Sammy @ 1920x1200. I much preferred that resolution over 1080 but I think I'll get used to it.
TN quality seems to have caught up with IPS with the SA750/950 series (except for viewing angles). Quite pleased with this monitor.
It's supposed to be replaced later this year by this one:What gave you the idea they are going to discontinue this monitor?
Is this monitor discontinued? Any info on a similar monitor being released to replace it if it was discontinued? Can't find much info on Samsung's website.
They are not discontinuing it.It's supposed to be replaced later this year by this one:
I posted the wrong link but Samsung has a range of new 24" and 27" monitors coming and one of them is no doubt a replacement for the S27A950 because the S27A750 was for a fact discontinued already.They are not discontinuing it.
That's just a new monitor with a higher resolution 2560x1440, it doesn't even have 3D/120Hz, and has a 5ms response time.
It will be in the lineup as well as the s27a950.
It's a different category.
The 120hz is definitely a great benefit of this monitor for gaming. You'd have to weight that against the higher resolution and IPS panel of the Korean monitors. That, or try to get one of those 2b overclockable Catleaps.Does anyone think these are better than the Korean IPS monitors for gaming? I already have a Dell 2412M.
These seem like a great deal. People appear to be latching on to the 100hz plus feature. Just be aware of why 120hz TN monitors reduce blur, and even artifacts due to reducing blur, so much.
I have an apple cinema display and if 120hz was possible, being sent to it would still blur/smear on FoV movement since the response time is 10ms+ (vs 2ms TN) and it lacks the tech outlined in the link above. I'd still jump on this deal if I didn't already have one. This is an incredible deal regardless of the hz, response time, and RTC.
2560x1440 60hz ips has gorgeous imagery, high color (around 85% adobe 1998 on my ACD), great desktop real-estate, screen/color uniformity, high ppi.
For appreciable blur reduction, a 120hz input TN with high/very high overdrive~Response-Time-Compensation(RTC) is the best you can get outside of a fw900 graphics professional crt.
Well what are you talking about? PLS panels are a totally different market. PLS panels are more for professional/business/photo heavy related work whereas TN 120Hz panels are more for gaming and movies. Pick your poison.How can a PLS panel replace a TN with 120Hz refresh rate?
P.S. A 120Hz monitor doesn't help you in movies (motion wise) because the vast majority of them are at 24fps. They are quite bad for movies because of the TN panel.burningrave101 said:It's supposed to be replaced later this year by this one:
this is why I'm interested, I've always had IPS aside from an ASV (Eizo with Sharp panel) at work. I still mainly want another IPS, but lately I've found that I'm watching more TV on the computer so would like a little more contrast occasionally, and also a little more speed with less tearing whilst gaming.Trust me, I was anti-TN for a long time as well but this monitor is very acceptable to me when you consider its strengths.
