I don't think anyone gets 120Hz panels for 3D anyway (besides the nvidia viewsonic one) It's just a tacked on feature because they CAN. I wouldn't dwell on it, no 3D has impressed me anyway.

hoping someone with the 950 model can help me out.. i cant seem to get the 3d working. i turn on the 2d to 3d mode via the monitor, the screen gets blurry - then i hold down the button on the glasses and the screen says glasses are connected to the monitor. but, even with the glasses on, everything looks blurry still, as if it was a clear lens doing nothing. am i doing something wrong? it says the glasses are connected, are they defective? thanks

Are you sitting too close/ far to the screen? I followed the same steps as you and got 3D working on mine.

Tweak all you want for games, there's nothing to fix the crosstalk issues for 3D movies. I've tried every tweak available and NONE made a difference. Heck, this POS can't even run 120Hz on an AMD card without a DisplayPort cable. The control panel is sometimes unresponsive. You can be pressing the button until your fingers bleed. The 23" doesn't have this problem. Then again it's easier to generate a clean 3D image on a smaller screen. Those extra 4" don't make up for flaws. I do not recommend this monitor. Check it's ratings over at Future Shop and Best Buy and get a good LOL.
27a950d is the best monitor I've ever used, chose it over a Dell U2711 IPS which was roughly in same price range. 3D is a complete non-issue for me, not interested in it, just went for the 120hz and the quality IQ which is rarely existent in TN panels. If I had to make the choice all over again I'd still got for it. Contrary to the above users experience, ghosting is ZERO with me.

However I have heard of inconsistencies in QA and which may play a part in user experience. These monitors are shipped in one piece (base attached to display) and seem quite delicate to me. Luckily I got mine in perfect working order. Virtually no light bleed, excellent screen uniformity and working out of the box perfectly. There are some issues with Nvidia and AMD users it seems. Nvidia GPUs work best with DVI-DL while AMD seems best suited for DP.

Despite my very favorable impressions with this monitor, I would not exactly recommend it as a blind purchase or from an online retailer. I would buy it from a store where you can easily return it next day if not satisfied with it.

Hey guys, not sure if you are aware or not, but there is a firmware update available for the SA series monitors. I just checked for my S23A750D:

http://www.samsung.com/sg/consumer/pc-peripherals-printer/monitor/led-monitor/LS23A750DS/XS-support

Under the news and alerts section, released 4/20/2012. biggrin.gif

Hopefully this resolves some of the issues we have been experiencing.

U beat me to it buddy biggrin.gif
Anyone have luck installing this? It was a fail for both m3th0d1c4l and I. It simply wouldnt run for m3th0d1c4l, and froze for me during install. I had to boot in safe mode to uninstall the updater, otherwise it would run and freeze again at start up.

I got exactly the same on mine. I tried to ask why when registering my monitor (the website form was borked), and the highly trained assistant couldn't help, he said to ignore updating the firmware rolleyes.gif

Edit: My monitor is dated Oct 2011, so either Samsung has been sitting on this update for a long time, or something is wrong with their update file.
