Depends on how far away you sit from the screen. Anything less than 2 feet I don't recommend getting it.

DVI-I is better it is the newest standard And can act as a DVI-D, you will not find DVI-D ports on newer video cards only DVI-I ports. Always go with DVI-I unless it is a old screen or old video card.

The reason i went for the 27A750 over the 950 was panel uniformity is better on the 750. Hopefully the display port connection is popular on future GPU'S as i had to sacrifice the dvi connection on the 950.
I found the reviews on this site great for making my decision.

I have the latest drivers installed from Samsungs website.

More details. If anyone see's a potential problem please post.

- Windows 7 64 Bit
- AMD 6950 2GB + 11.8 Catalyst Drivers
- Using Displayport to Mini-Displayport from monoprice
- Dual screen. Samsung SA750 + Samsung 40" HDTV

Thanks in advance.

Mine makes an usb-like sounds as well when I turn it on. It doesn't see it as a new device though, at least I don't see any messages. Just the sound, nothing else (DP cable from screen to videocard).

Btw, the windows which are open while turning off the screen, are resized and placed into the corner when the screen is turned on again. I heard that's normal for Display Port, but it's annoying sometimes.

Yeah, I get the USB like sound as well, but no new device message. I just assumed that sound meant a new device was detected.

It's strange some experience it and some don't. It's probably a windows related setting that needs to be changed/adjusted.

On a few occasions, the monitor would start in 3D mode and the OSD 3D setting would be grayed out. I have to power off and back on again for it to go back to normal.

Is it dumb to pick up the S27A950 for $700?
Should I wait?

DVI-I is not better than DVI-D -- at least not for this application. A DVI-I cable is just a DVI-D (digital) and DVI-A (analog) combined for simplicity's sake. There's no benefit whatsoever in using a DVI-I cable on a device that requires a DVI-D cable (both send the same digital signal). In fact, you can't even use a DVI-I with this monitor because the female DVI socket type only supports DVI-D (it doesn't have the 4 extra pin holes, etc).

So, to the above poster that this quote was originally directed toward, don't go out and buy a DVI-I cable because it won't even work. The proper cable (Dual-link DVI-D) will come in the box with the 950D.

Edit: Also wanted to add that you can use a DVI-D cable even if your graphics card or monitor is the DVI-I format. In fact, pretty much every graphics card is DVI-I and not DVI-D (for obvious reasons). However, you CAN"T use a DVI-I cable with a DVI-D only device because it simply won't fit into the socket.

Are you both using ATI cards?

I've got the following:
- Windows 7 64
- NVIDIA GTX 570 w/ 285.62
- DP Cable included with monitor
- Dual screen SA750D/ZR30w

Just punched it on and off a few more times with no beeps. No new devices in device manager either. My DP cable with latches is here, hopefully this helps with the "optimal resolution" error I've been getting. If not I will continue battling with Samsung support via Twitter.

I would like to know the same. I just sold my iPad. Where can one of these be found for around $600?
