Experience: 4 Months


Great image quality
Real 120hz
3D that doesn't require Nvidia+expensive add ons
3D doesn't work well with certain games
Excellent monitor. Some people think that 27" is too big for 1080p, but it actually looks great. If you have a computer capable of running games at 120fps you'll never want to go back to 60hz.

If you have an Nvidia card for 3D, or you don't care about having a large monitor, I recommend getting one of the cheaper monitors.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Bright, fast, beautiful
move to the side, up or down, and it gets dimmer
I bought it for the 120 hertz in 2D, the 3D is a nice bonus.
27 inch is a good size.
The style of this moniter is stunning, and might look better from the back.

Experience: 6 Months


Very thin, great design and picture quality, 120hz is amazing
no 3d vision but there is a workaround
This monitor is one of the best looking monitors i have ever seen in my life. Apart from its sexy design, its picture quality is absolutely stunning. Tridef software for 3d games comes with this monitor which is pretty descent. It is not nvidia 3d vision certified but there is a workaround to do that. 120hz gaming is soo smooth and fun. Remember that only way you can get 120hz on this monitor is using the Dvi dual link cable which comes with the monitor or display port. Hdmi doesnt support 120hz. 2d to 3d conversion feature is pretty good too. Satisfied with the purchase.

Experience: 2 Days


-Beautiful picture.
-Surprisingly good 3d.
-Nice looking design
-Plugins at the back could have been better placed.
Great monitor and amazing picture. A bit expensive but definitely worth the price

Experience: 2 Months


3D works great
No bleed
Crisp images
Slight screen sag
This is a fantastic monitor, despite the high price I still find it to be good value. A lot of people have had some issues with the 3D ghosting in certain games, I've tried most of the same games and have found no issues yet. Clarity of the screen is great, and my panel pretty much has no bleed although that seems to be luck of the draw. The only downside is my panel does sag a bit on the left, I was afraid that was going to happen with the design. Despite that the hinge does seem sturdy, so it's a shame they didn't count for that to happen. While the design is really nice, I still would have bought it and maybe preferred if it had a more traditional base. Would buy another one though, great monitor.

-Great delta e for most colors
-Excellent black levels
-Good bright levels
-Out of box setup for colors is impressive
-2D-3D scaling is typically a gimmick-with this monitor it is not. Very good 2D-3D scaling.
-Overall the image is clear, crisp, bright and vibrant.
-True 120 Hz panel
-Tested some Blue-ray video and it looked good.
-3D glasses are much nicer than the Panasonic ones that I purchased for my TV.
-3D renders well from my Panasonic 3D Blue-ray player
-No noticeable artifacts when panning
-No native Nvidia 3D support, and none will ever be developed (there is a workaround but like all workarounds it is less than ideal/optimal)
-Stupid, stupid, stupid base plate design. Whoever came up with this should be fired: all inputs are to the back of the bottom of the 7.5" wide base. This means that the MINIMUM distance the panel will be from the edge of your desk is 10.5 inches. In order to prevent severe wire bend this places it almost smack dab in the middle of my 26" wide desk. This was completely avoidable with proper design and if not for NCIX's restocking fee I'd be taking it back because of this.
-TV (in my case Panasonic) glasses do not work with this monitor. Manufacturers need to work on standardizing the emitters IMO.
If you have the desk space for this monitor I highly recommend it. At the time of my purchase 1/12/2012 it was on sale at NCIX.

If desktop space is an issue, specifically if your desk is pushed up close to, or against a wall I suggest looking at other options.

Experience: 5 Days


WOW!!! Awsome!!!!
Not sure about the 3D thing yet, don't have anything that's 3D, but it sure is a great monitor, this is my second Samsung monitor, I also have a 24" LCD. One thing I do know, Google Earth sure looks great on this monitor :-)
thought the controls down in the lower right corner could use a bit more thought in there operation, seems to me that one has to push on em' a bit harder than is needed.
All in all, I think it is a pretty nice monitor, besides got a bit of a deal on it on Boxing Day when I was reading about while logged into my account, the price droped right in front of my eyes :-), so I said to myself "self, hell ye" :-).
Thanks NCIX & Happy New Year

Experience: 3 Months


Amazing colour, 120hz, 3d engine built into the monitor, very light and thin
ergonmics are limited
Bought this monitor primarily to play games and it fulfills this role very well. At first I thought 27" might be too big, not so, its the perfect size IMO. The 1920x1080 res on the 27" looks great and won't overwhelm your video card. Glare hasn't been an issue for me. The 3d works and is cool but I didn't buy this monitor for the 3d so it was purely a bonus. The 120hz defenitely makes a noticeable difference in games especially shooters. BF3 and SC2 look amazing on this montor. Yes this monitor costs more but you get what you pay for and if your looking for one of the best gaming TN displays, this is it.

Dont know where to start , i was looking for a monitor bigger than 24 inches 120hz and 3d as soon as i stumbled upon this i purchased within 5 min. i didn't care about the price , i assumed this was normal pricing for what i was looking for . if i can afford to pay 500 for a gtx 580 i can invest 700 for a monitor to take advantage of my graphic cards. anyways , to my point ! ITS AMAZING !!! as soon as you see the box and open it u will drool. and dont get me started with the image E.V.E.R.Y. worth every dollar. i didnt know it was a series 9 until i saw it on a sticker on the base of the screen. top of the line stuff !
if u want the best and can afford it then get it !
if not well it sucks for you

Experience: 2 Weeks


Excellent colors, Good viewing angles, no input lag in gaming, stylish
Price, text a little blurry
I purchased this monitor a few weeks ago from a local computer chain, the first had a dead pixel and terrible visible backlighting so it was exchanged for a defect free monitor. The difference between the two was phenomenal so keep that in mind should yours have backlighting issues; it's not meant to be like that!

120hz Gaming is fantastic there's no bones about it. Colors are excellent and this is the first monitor I could watch a Blu-ray on and not be disappointed with the image quality. I was unable to get the software to play 3D Blu-rays but I did test 3D Gaming out a few times and I was quite happy with it. I already have a 3D HDTV but I found the experience on the monitor to be better. I am still continuously amazed at the picture quality when gaming on BF3 Beta or even Rage I don't have any doubts going for this over a Dell 27".

The only con I have found on this monitor is that text isn't quite as crisp as a 24" 1920x1080 monitor. Since every other aspect is excellent I find this very easy to overlook.

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: Samsung promises 100% Photo Accuracy, fast response times and a 3D solution for AMD GPU users and delivers. The S27A950D has no ghosting, fantastic default color accuracy and almost no input lag while also sporting a fantastic look. It leaves little to be desired.
