Samsung SA950 and SA750 Owners Club - Page 35

post #341 of 1741
Hey guys, I'm contemplating getting between the S23A750D and S23A350H.

I could use some advice from somebody who has experience with these monitors. Is 3D capability the only difference?
the S23A750D is significantly more expensive and I dont really care much for 3D. Both monitors are 120hz i think, so should i get the SA350H instead?

Is the Image quality for both the same? So far Samsung panels seem to have the best image quality of all the monitors i've seen

^ people get 3D monitors not because they want 3D..but because they want 120hz...if you have a good pc that can push 70+ fps in games...you will want a 120hz monitor. if not, 60hz would be fine. 60hz can display 60 frames a second...so if your system is super powerful and can deliver 100+ fps...your monitor is holding you back. if it cannot display that many frames per second..60hz is fine. 120hz will display 120 frames a second...which makes fast motion look smooth....3D monitors running in 2D is what gamers with good graphic cards get because they want smooth game play. so if your pc can deliver more than 60fps ...120hz is the way to go...you can see more images per second...which makes everything looks smoother.

if you don't think you need 120hz..or if you pc cannot push 70+ fps consistently...get a 60hz IPS.

0 - 60 fps = get 60hz IPS
70+ fps = get 120hz TN monitor.

no reason to ever buy 60hz TN monitors...tho i might consider high-end Samsung monitors.

For me, 23" was noticeably better for clarity/sharpness - 27" 1080p...is a fun screen size...but everything was a little too big..icons on windows felt odd to me...just too big (if resolution was higher, i would of considered it). For gaming, 27" might be fun, tho some people say its harder to see everything on the screen..and you might have to turn up AA settings vs. 23". They both have pros and cons....people should go to a store and check both screen sizes at 1080p before deciding. Overall, 27" 1080p was too big for me at that resolution...and ideally I wish I could of gotten a 120hz 24" 1200p. 23" 1080p is a little to small of a screen size for me...but closer to what I wanted. to each his own.
btw - I got my 23" 750D for $390..from buy.com ($399 - $10 promo)

Thanks for the info.

How do Samsung brands compare to other brands having 120 Hz monitors as well? Is Samsung the most recommended screen to go with (bias aside)?

Yeah Samsung 750/950 are the best overall - but expensive. After that, I recommend Asus VG236HE - it's glossy screen and cost a lot less. If you want matted screen I would get the Planar SA2311W. This is based off of a lot of research I did about 2 months ago. I'm not sure if anything new has entered the market since then...but as of 2 months ago for 120hz I rank them as:

S23A950/A750 (expensive) > VG236HE (great price; glossy) >= SA2311W (very good; matted)

Thanks. I hope somebody can input some information on the latest screens. How about the Dell monitors, for 60 Hz are they good?

So are these Samsung 27" 120Hz monitors superior to 30" 1600p monitors for gaming?

In terms of smooth gameplay the 120hz is by far the best if you can achieve higher than 70fps, you'll notice the difference, even when dragging windows across the desktop there is a certain, almost shocking, smoothness that you'd never see without a 120hz refresh rate, you see just how smooth windows 7 really is. Now for a 1600p display that is a very nice display to have, if you sit optimal distance away you get a "looking through the window" feel as if its not even a screen but a natural window, you shouldn't be too close to the screen or it defeats the purpose of having 1600p, unless your using it purely for screen real-estate, in which case 2 large 1080p screens would be a cheaper solution. thumb.gif

Is anyone having this problem with their Samsung 3D glasses? (S27A950D) I saw it mentioned on YouTube, a kid had a problem with the right lens ghosting. The right lens on my glasses are ghosting the image while the left lens is fine. I've tried different setting but nothing helps, here are the pics.

These Samsung drives aren't compatible with Nvdia 3D vision tech, right? So how do you Nvidia guys play in 3D?
