Experience: 1 Weeks
-very bright
-good pixel density
-good arrangement of ports
-stand is sturdy compared to their other options
kind of pricy even now
Its a great panel from samsung as always. great stand and connectiveity

Experience: 2 Months
excellent mid range monitor, as good as IPS technology, replaced my beloved HP ZR24w
stand is not as good as HP, lights leaks when the screen is black
had two ZR24W worked beautifully for 2 and half years,loved the color on the IPS panels, only problem I had with em are the heat, they generate lots of heat after long uses, bought a used SA850 24 INCH last year b a great price, the RLS panel seems good and even brighter than the ZR24W, and much less heat, one more thing, the 27 inch vision I bought is not as bright as the 24 inch, I guess its b/c they not cut from the same panel, over all its a great LCD for its price, great for reading test and watching videos

Experience: 1 Years
design, colour, pivot,
Absolutely beautiful monitor, vibrant colours, great design, 1440p gives you lots of real estate, and absolutely gorgeous to game on. Will need a descent video card to game with though keep that in mind.

Experience: 2 Months

Great simple flat black design.
Great colour reproduction.
Very bright out of the box.
Light sensor with Motion Sensor.
Actual buttons, Well designed into the Bezel.
ECO Power Saving Features.
Good Response times.
Sturdy well designed stand.
PBP Picture by Picture.
"Fastest" setting for Response Times causes Ghosting instead of preventing it, Best setting is "Faster"
Pricey, But so worth it :)
The Samsung SyncMaster A850DS came out of the box with great colours and picture.
Brightness was very bright at first but with ECO and picture settings allowed to get a great picture while conserving energy.
Light sensors can be enabled allowing you to reduce eyestrain by adjusting screen brightness to match the surrounding environment.
The ECO Motion Sensor allows the monitor to automatically dim, then power off, but then power back on once it detects anyone.
ECO power savings reduce up to 40% energy consumption, which allows the monitor to run cool all day without reducing picture quality.

Response times are good enough to play all types of Pc games, So far I've tried Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Shank 2, All looked and played great. One note with Gaming is under Monitors settings "Picture>Response Time", The "Fastest" setting for Response Times causes Ghosting instead of preventing it, The best setting is "Faster"

A neat feature is Picture by Picture (PBP) which enables you to connect two different video sources into the monitor and split it into two 1280x1440 screens.

Overall this is a great monitor that I would highly recommend to others looking for a large 27" IPS monitor, It's pro's outweigh the con's easily and Mine luckily arrived with zero dead pixel's.

beautiful design. beautiful color.
short cable.
beautiful design. beautiful color. pivot. the best monitor.

Stunningly minimal industrial design. 2560x1440 very high dpi display. Clear and bright. Incredible color reproduction out of box. No perceivable input lag or ghosting. Real control buttons. Sleek and beautiful. Great viewing angles.
blacks are not consistent across the monitor. More than negligible blacklight bleed.
Beautiful minimalist design, bright, ultra high dpi, incredible viewing angles and color reproduction, no lag. Prefect, but for inconsistent black levels. Noticeable bright patches detract from dark images.

Experience: 5 Days
 Verified Owner
Excellent Color, no image lag noticeable in game, bright, no ugly anti reflective coatings, great connections, and great stand.
None so far
Excellent monitor, I would recommend to anyone. I wish it was 120hz 3D but the only available 3D models are not 2560X1440 PLS except for a few korean ones but I don't trust the reliability.

Experience: 5 Months
 Verified Owner
Game look fantastic at 2560X1440 resolution
I like the pivot function.
usb3 hub
I like the pivot function. Nice to read book or to write office document with full page view
Not a con, but you need an high end video card to play games on max details at 2560X1440 resolution. Pushed my Gtx 570 to the limit, but now i got 2 GTX 670 (SLI) from boxing day :)

Experience: 3 Months
 Verified Owner
Nice resolution, fairly small footprint, dependable brand
16:9 resolution
Slightly annoyed at the 16:9. Not everyone wants crazy widescreen resolutions. Would have preferred 2560x1600
But when it comes to a decent resolution overall, a reasonably small footprint and good colour reproduction, this is an amazing monitor.

Experience: 4 Months
high resolution
usb3 hub
if you use your computer many hours a day and need high resolution, this is your monitor.

Comment: XBits Labs' exhaustive review of the 27-inch SA850 with new PLS matrix
Posted by: BernardP @11/28/11
Comment: While the new Samsung S27A850D isn’t perfect, it goes without saying that minor issues such as its USB 3.0 port location are far outweighed by the benefits it has to offer you. Excellent picture quality, forward looking power saving features which are based off of motion detection algorithms and all
