Just got my s27a950d monitor yesterday. This is by far the best monitor I have ever used. Both 2d and 3d. I needed a new monitor and am very happy that I went of this model after lots of research.
I must admit that I bought it mainly for the 120hz 2d performance but the 3d functionality did influence my decision.
I've been playing around with 3d on my panasonic vierra 3d tv via ps3 and from my laptop running tridef 5.2. HDMI 1.4 cables limits to 1280*720 @60Hz or 1920*1080 @24Hz.
Connected to sapphire 6950 toxic 2GB (with bios switched over to 6970 to enable the full stream processors) over Dual Link DVI cable supplied with the monitor.
I had to switch DVI ports on the card as it only has 1 dual DVI, the other is single DVI and only gave 60Hz.
Looks stunning out of the box, although I plan to try a few customised setting mentioned on this tread. Colours look great and no noticable light bleed. 120Hz feels more responsive, although the 2ms delay might help too, comparing it against the monitors that I use at work and previous home LCD monitors that have had tv tuners built in. Nice to have what I would class as a proper dedicated monitor.
Screen reflectiveness, not a issue at night but noticable during the day, just make sure that you place the monitor so that don't have a window reflecting off the screen.
Mulitple monitors - although I don't plan to use multiple monitors at the moment I would like to try in the future as I use extended desktop at work. When I hook up a second 1080p tv/monitor to the other dvi port it forces the samsung to switch back to 60Hz, this I believe is a limitation of the graphics card.
Installed the samsung tridef software and was prompted to download the latest version (5.2) so this gives me 2d-3d video conversion which is slightly better than the monitors 2d-3d conversion and is more configurable. All games run at 1080p with high/ultra settings where possible.
I have tried a few games through tridef ignition and tweaked the preconfigured game profiles to my liking. Some games work better than others, comparing 3d effects to ps3 native3d games (e.g. Uncharted 3, GT5) Games tested:
Batman - Arkham City: 3d looks stunning, 10/10
Skyrim: heavily modded version, works very well although I had to turn down the antialiasing down to get the fps back up in 3d mode and add the laser sight 8/10
Lego Star Wars 2: 3d works absolutley perfect 10/10
Dirt3: tried before and after installing tridef and both solutions worked perfectly (AMD HD3D built into dirt3) 10/10
GTA4: 3d works but with issues, possibly due to mods 4/10
Portal 2: flawless 1080p 3d at 60Hz, 10/10
Monitor Built in 2d-3d conversion
Just Cause 2: can't get this working with tridef and from what i have read it is incompatible so I tried the monitors conversion, pretty good. Believable depth to near and distant objects.
XBOX 360 over HDMI
Forza 4 - considering that this is a 2d feed this works increadibly well, not perfect but very close. Everything drawn at reasonable depth on the track, autovista views of the cas looks amazing. Beats gt5 for being at 1080p and the 3d effect is as good as gt5 on my 3dtv.
Comparing the 2d-3d conversion on this monitor to the 2d-3d conversion on my panasonic vierra.
Panasonic 2d-3d - although this does add a little depth to all 2d feeds, it really doesn't work too well compared to a true 3d feed, depends on the scene as to how well it copes but mostly looks fairly flat.
Samsung sa950 - this blows the 3DTV 2d-3d conversion out of the water, no question. Again not as good as a true 3d feed but for when you can't play a certain game in 3d it works great. Desktop in 3d is a little strange, but youtube vids work fairly well.
