Samsung SA950 and SA750 Owners Club - Page 31

post #301 of 1741
Anyone else see the newer, but lower end SA700D's? the s23a700d is $400 locally and I am thinking about getting it, I like the look of the 950D a lot better but the base looks like it would make surround impossible on the 23" as on the 27" there is the hang over but 23 there is not, also I am liking it over the 750D as there is no clear edge on the bezel just black, and no weird base

Anyone know if it uses the same panel? or any negatives to this compared to the others?


Edit: I think the S23a700d's on the outside and the s23a950d in the middle would be sick, that is why I am really hoping for the same panel (even though the height is different.) but will probably end up 3x 700D

So the 23" model does exist? Over here in germany it's nowhere to be found. A friend is looking for it like crazy. He even mailed Samsung over here but they told him they didn't know of any new displays coming to the market these days.

I found something for the nvidia 3D Vision crowd in here. Maybe someone already stated it but it can't hurt to write it down again.

3D Vision - which eye first?
If you use 3D Vision, it's important that your left eye gets to see the frame, your GPU rendered for it and vice versa. Your GPU will render the alternating frames from 2 different angles and the 3D effect only makes sense if the angles match the position your eyes are in your head. Imagine switching your eyes from left to right, the world has to look pretty weird then right?

When you switch your Samsung to 3D mode it will use its shutter glasses to display one frame to your left eye and one to your right. The issue is, your GPU is not aware which frame goes to your left eye and which to your right. The only 2 constants are that the frames alternate and they do so in 120Hz. This is because the NVidia driver only sends the L/R information to the emulator and your Samsung is blissfully unaware which frame is for which eye. When you enter 3D mode you have about a 50% chance that the image your left eye sees actually was meant for your left eye. If you win, the 3D effect will be good until you exit 3D mode. If you lose, the whole scene will look weird and in rare and drastic scenarios your brain will melt.

How to find out?
If your game doesn't have a 2D crosshair, try using this NVidia builtin 2D Crosshair for starters. Hit CTRL+F12 for toggling it. Do you see only one? Then you're most likely golden.

Its reversed! Help!
If you see 2 of them there's 2 things you can do
  • Exit and re-enter 3D mode by hitting Ctrl+T until you only see one crosshair. This can take a handful of tries.
  • Go into your OSD and set L/R change from L/R to R/L or vice versa.

Personally I like to go gambling with Ctrl+T more than messing around in the OST just because its faster.

Need to ask you guys something about the DVI cable. Is there any different between normal DVI cable that you can get from all other LCDs and the DVI cable that comes along with S27A950D? Only the S27A950D's DVI cable that capable to do 120hz? Is there any harm or drawback if I just normal DVI cable on S27A950D?

I want to link my laptop to my S27A950D, and my laptop only has VGA-out, so what I'm thinking is that use a VGA cable and add a DVI converter on the other end to connect it to S27A950D, I'm just not sure that whether there's any side effect or not if I do this.

Essentially you get a Dual Link DVI-D cable with the Samsung and that's the only way to feed it 120Hz via DVI. I'm not sure if the VGA output of your laptop will work but I doubt it since it's a DVI-D which means its only for digital signals.

I did link my laptop to my previous Benq 24" LCD before(with converter), and it did work quite well. But since S27A950D uses Dual Link DVI-D cable, I don't really dare to try it unless I'm 100% sure that it's ok.

Those glasses are probably the most profitable part for Samsung. They artificially add like $100 to the acceptable pricetag and probably only cost 3$ to make rolleyes.gif

Hi, first post here smile.gif

Received my S27A750D today, so far I love it. 1080P on a 27" screen works perfect for me (my eyes are about 2 to 2,5 feet away from the screen).

One issue though, out of the box the monitor came with 100% brightness (for which you'll need sunglasses tongue.gif) and as soon as I lower it to 99 or less it starts buzzing. When it's silent in the room I can hear it pretty good. Only with 100% brightness the monitor is quiet. Is there any solution for this? I know a lot of monitors make some sort of sound, but it's a bit louder than I experienced with the P2370HD and other screens I had before.

Edit: I should probably mention I didn't install the driver yet.

Sounds defective to me. My monitor makes no sound whatsoever no matter what settings i use, the driver won't change that either. You might have the refresh rate set incorrectly in windows, confirm that it's at 120hz in display options (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution\Advanced Settings\Monitor).
