No never had that problem.

There's one thing bothering me for a while now about the 750D.

Sometimes I use the monitor for my PS3, because there's almost no input lag compared to my D6530 HDTV.

However when I do so, everytime I switch from Displayport to HDMI I have to set the (color) options again. Also when I plug it back into my pc and switch the monitor to Displayport again I have to set it right manually, the settings I set for Displayport are not saved. On my old monitor every different type of connection (DVI, HDMI, etc.) saved different settings as I set it.

Am I missing something or is it just a poor design choice?

Hi Guys.

I have just read through 107 pages of this thread .. before anyone trys to tell me this was answered previously in the thread.

I have just purchased the S27A950D, and for 120hz 2D, this is a GREAT monitor. Problem is, I purchased this mainly for 3D - I love driving games mainly (DIRT 3 etc). This monitor allow you to bypass HDMI 1.4a 30fps 1080p 3D, and allows me to get beautiful looking 3D at 60fps in 1080p.

The problem is the ghosting/crosstalk in 3D. It is quite honestly terrible. To give some perspective, I have been 3D gaming using AMD HD3D / Tridef 3D combo on a 2011 59" 3DTV, and have about 15 games that I play in 3D - depending on the game either in 720p60fps, or 1080p30fps - so I know how 3D is meant to look. I wanted to make the leap to 60fps 3D.. so hence my decision to buy this monitor.

I have read earlier suggestions about changing the response to normal - this makes no difference on a s27a950d. If I block one eye, I can clearly see major ghosting.. it is usually much worse on the right. To give you an idea, I would say it is without exaggeration, 10 to 20 times worst than the ghosting I have on my 3DTV, which I would describe as faint. This is quite extreme.

There is a whole thead about this problem over at the tri-def forums - under samsung displays, ghosting tips. (specifically just for these monitors),

Basically no body has come up with any suggestions that seem to make any difference, other than one person who says that yes they had terrible ghosting on the S27a950d with the supplied SSG-m3050gb glasses, but then they tried the SSG-M3150gb - and apparently this made a MASSIVE difference, the ghosting was reduced.

Is anyone else having this ghosting. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?

I would like to setup a test with some other (Maybe we can use a standard 3D text image), and compare crosstalk/ghosting. I am not sure If I have a dodgy screen / dodgy glasses or if this is a widespread issue.

Just searching this thread reveals 33matches to "Ghosting" so I'm pretty sure i'm not alone.

Is anyone in a situation that has both the SSG-m3050's & the SSG-m3150's that could possibly test.

Thanks for any help..

But where I live the only place selling these is an e-tailer which doesn't do returns and doesn't have the best of reputations when it comes to warranty issues.. So it's basically a question of getting a 950D which might have a bad BLB problem for ~1000$ or a 750D and deal with possible Displayport issues for ~750$.. Looks like it still might be worth it though tongue.gif

$1000 for the 950D? Where do you live?

Iceland.. I got quoted ~1450$ for the 950D in another shop if they ordered it specially for me.

We get absolutely shafted by customs in every conceivable way.. it's awesome. rolleyes.gif

Sorry to hear, thought customs here were a pain..

What about renting a van, ferry to Denmark then down to those crazy Germans, then fill same van up with gear, return home & sell enough to cover trip?biggrin.gif

Sorry to here that. I was just wondering because most Samsung S27A950 monitors cost about $400. I have a Samsung S23A950 and its the best 120Hz TN monitor I've owned.

I highly recommend everyone out there who owns one of these to try out SVP (Smoothvideo Project) for their media player. Holy crap does it make a difference on 120hz.

It was $1100 here New Zealand but that was like 3 months before it even released in the USA.
