All I've adjusted so far is brightness and contrast, haven't messed with any other settings. Only 2 days old, but I'm liking this monitor, nice picture and gaming is smooth as glass.

OK, I read some more details of the article, you're right it looks like the colors can be calibrated. Other than that, they're very close in alot of ways, even though the S seems to win by a little every time. It looks like the S wins out in contrast ratio more than other specs, not that the A is bad though.
Don't get me wrong, like I say mine is working very well I'm diggin' it. I just hate
companies changing what's under the hood to something inferior, but calling it the same and charging you same too, grrrr
. If they all were same panel really, but made in another factory....fine no problem. Different panel though, that doesn't perform as well, calling it the same as the awesome samples you sent out to get people salivating....not OK IMO. The only thing that saves Samsung in my eyes, like the article kinda says, is that performance is pretty close and still very good.
I don't know which panel I have, and it's working great, but if the performance gap were any
more, and I got one of the bad one's, I'd be pissed man. Some people are kinda pissed it seems, even with the small performance gap, it's a personal thing I guess. I totally understand though, to some people they just wanted the best. Would an audiophile be understanding, if he shelled out the cash for the "best" headset, only to find out they switched the cans to something not quite as good? Even if it still
sounded really good.... hell no they'd be raging lunatics demanding their money back right? Granted, that's not an equal
example, cause your not spending so much on this monitor as you would high end cans, but you get what I mean.

I'm just voicing my distaste for their tactics, and like I say their saving grace is that performance is close. If it were any worse, alot more hell would break loose about this. Performance is still hard to beat here, very nice picture, response time is phenomenal. Having no idea which panel I have, I still recommend this monitor from my own experience so far. I hate to complain when the product is still very good. But if you're trying to sell me something, hinting at and showing "perfection" with a sample, don't even try to sell me lesser cause all
you'll do is piss me off. I guess that's the moral of the story, for me anyway. Since it's still so good though, even though I don't like how they did it, at least they still almost
delivered the performance level they touted. They showed us a 10 then sold some of us a 9 1/2
