I didn't know we have this thread. I'm about to open one. Anyway, it's great to have this thread.

Count me in for this monitor. I just bought it for $800 on Microcenter. However, I'm kinda pissed that Fedex shipped this monitor to my neighbor two house away from my house. What's wrong with them? mad.gif

Review: This monitor is one great monitor I've ever seen so far. I know it's an expensive a bit, but it's worth the investment. The reason I bought this is I don't want to invest an expensive monitor with a cheap plastic frame all over the monitor like Dell, Asus, and others. So far, this monitor shows amazing picture quality and text. Viewing angle is perfect. Watching movie is a gorgeous. Samsung rocks all the way with screen quality. I love it. thumb.gif

S27B970D has been on sale for $799.99 for two weeks, and still not out of stock, this seems to suggest that it is not as desirable as what people might like to think it is, the price when it was first introduced few months ago was $1300.

http://microcenter.com/product/391183/S27B970D_Series_9_27_LED_Monitor

I was going to go ahead and order one since $800 is a bargain when taking into consideration how much nicer in every aspect of this monitor when compares to the crappy Korean A- IPS panel monitors that sells at the price from mid $300's to mid $500's. I own two Crossover 27Q LED-P for 3 weeks, and I know how crappy these Korean A- IPS monitors are (I didn't just get a "bad" monitor due to "bad luck", the flaws in these cheap monitors are too many and are unbearable!). I decided not to get the S27B970D for $800 now for the following reasons:

1. Although the Aluminium with real glass construction and craftsmanship for this monitor is superb, I dislike the wide bezel and the odd looking round base of this monitor, I don't know how other people feel about the design, but to me the wide bezel and thick round base design is truly, truly ugly!

2. Why the heck Samsung use USB2 and not USB3 for this monitor? USB-2 had already been outdated for years! Hello Samsung! anybody home?

3. I would like more input ports for connecting to multiple pc's and laptops (not at once of course), 1 DVI + 1 HMDL + 1 DP is just not enough any more, I would like to see Samsung double them.

These are my only reasons for not wanting this monitor, I hope Samsung would release a newer version of this monitor that has a better design (no ugly thick-round base), USB3 ports, and double the number of video input ports.

You not gotta find any monitor out there with those expectation for sure. I believe so. Enjoy what we have today. Don't ask too much.

New model/version of this monitor should come out soon, 2013 is just around the corner, less than 2 weeks away, and the new model can't be that far away either, that I am sure, and I have time on my side. I have 2 extra 1440p monitors as I am writing this, that's two too many, so I certainly can wait, and will wait for the new model from Samsung to come out.

That's great to hear that you like your new Samsung S27B970D.

Yes, Samsung PLS monitors, although expensive, are worth the extra money and investment especially if you require the best image quality and still be able to play demanding FPS games.

Apparently Samsung is planning to launch smaller PLS monitors next year, possibly 23" models.

If anyone's interested, here's a review for the Samsung S27A850D Super PLS Monitor:

http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/samsung-syncmaster-s27a850d/4505-3174_7-35018743.html
Quote:
The bottom line: The Samsung SyncMaster S27A850D is a well-designed, stylish, professional monitor with great options and performance.

The reviewer in the video says that the black levels are the deepest they've seen and the image quality is the best out of all IPS displays in the consumer electronics market.

I realise I'm necro'ing this thread, but thought it best to write something here instead of creating a new one. I recently purchased a S24A850DW. Like many others, mine came with severe backlight bleeding. After much tampering I found that the cause of this bleeding is the metal frame within the plastic casing. After taking it out, I found there was very little bleeding. I'm sure the case is there for a reason, but for now I'll leave it out. Hopefully this will help someone else with this otherwise great monitor.

Have this monitor arriving in one week. What should I look for out of the box? Hate to return it but don't wish to be stuck with a bleeder, if your solution is a quick FIX, just in case I do get a bad one, then I'll feel much better about ordering.


Does the metal frame simply disassemble and remove with a screwdriver?


Thanks thumb.gif
