I figured it out. You gotta grip the bottom and the top at the same time and tilt it. Wish I would've known that before pushing the top really hard. frown.gif

Did anyone here manage to get a S27A950D that doesn't sag 1/4" on the left side? It seems like the stand is very poor.

Couple of questions for owners here. Is everyone still getting the "incorrect resolution" message still through DP? Also, does HDMI not do 120hz and is that why everyone wants to use DVI (or DP on the sa750).

I couldn't really care less about 3d, but really want a monitor with fantastic color in the 27" range. The Dell 27" at 999 is just too expensive to justify.

Thanks.

ive read a few people complaining about the 950D..and how it sags or has back lighting issues either on the bottom left or right side...I think this is due to stand design and how pressure is being applied. That said...my 750D is near perfect....none of those issues....im assuming that's because the stand/neck of the monitor is very small and centered compared to the 950D.

I haven't gotten that message in a while now...my issue is I almost ALWAYS lose dual screen mode every time I restart my PC. I have to unplug and re-plug my 750D every morning...annoying. Maybe it's cause I didn't use the driver on the CD..and just installed the one that was on the website..not sure.

HDMI cannot do 120hz..so yeah...you have to use dual DVI or DisplayPort cables.

Best 27" for gaming...imho..is the 27" Samsung 750D. 1080p is a little low for that size of screen...but if you are gaming...you most probably should be using 1080p...the Dell IPS has too many pixels and your fps will drop big time...not to mention it's not 120hz...which makes gaming play smooth.

Thanks a bunch Malik. I agree about the 1920x1080. It's about all my setup can handle and still give me 60fps. i would love to have an IPS display, but 2560 res will be too much to game on. From what I read, DP>DVI converters won't pass 120hz either. Is that true? I am looking at the s27750d because it is a good bit cheaper than the 950, but the incorrect resolution error through DP had me scared. And now your dual-screen issue has me thinking too.

I'm coming from a 37" Westinghouse 1080p LCD, so you can imagine how bad the pixel density is on that thing for me. I think this would be a nice "upgrade" even though I'm coming down in size.

I am not sure about the DP>DVI converters....if its dual DVI > Display port or vise verse...I would think it would work fine...if it's just 1 x DVI...yeah i doubt that will work.

Samsung s27a750d..is great. The image quality is the best I have seen on a 27" monitor to be honest. I def. recommend 750D over 950D...750D looks better (has better stand design imo) and seems to have less chance of defective screens from what I have read.

In the end, I wouldn't trade or overlook the 750D/950D just because of a chance of incorrect resolution error or even because my dual screen setup is lost often (yes, the monitor is that good). I would still buy this monitor compared to all other 120hz on the market right. Though unplugging and plugging my monitor from the back is annoying..it takes about 10 seconds to fix...so it's worth it. Plus...i figure Samsung is aware of theses issue and will release a driver update (I would like to imagine). I'm actually thinking of calling them and seeing if they can help me with my dual screen issue...if uninstalling and reinstalling the CD driver doesn't work. Either way...750D is the best gaming monitor I have ever seen...wouldn't trade it for anything.

FYI - I am still running Vista 64-bit...lol, yeah I know...I have Windows 7 but will install it after reformatting sometime next month...i wouldn't be surprised if my dual screen issues is related to Vista....wouldn't be surprised at all....

Could someone verify this?
Possibly using something like this:
