      I did a lot of research for a 27" monitor with the denser resolution of 2560x1440. Some 27" monitors do not have this resolution so I immediately nixed those from the short list.

      I had considered other monitors from Apple and NEC. The NEC cost $1600 and the Apple $1000. I simply could not justify the cost and the Apple has the silly glass front which gave me a headache in a minute or 2 of trying to use it. My other monitor is a 24" NEC P221W and it does not seem as sharp as this Samsung. Even with the expensive propriety color calibration software and device, their Neural setting seems green to my eye.

      Out of the box, the colors looked neutral, and bright and the detail of the pixels are very clear. The brightness was adjusted down and that was it. Calibration software said it was good to go for sRGB.

      The screen real estate is amazing. Once you go big, everything else is like working through a keyhole. You can get all your control panels in the Adobe Suite programs on one screen with your open document. It is a real luxury and makes me more productive.

      I used this product just long enough to discover that it was not compatible with Mac computers. It was purchased due to its supposedly better resolution than the ViewSonic monitor I use alongside an iMac. Unfortunately, I found that Samsung (probably by design) does not supply a Mac-compatible driver for it. Back into the shipping containers!

        Great color and text.

        Comments about Samsung S27A850D 27" 850 Series Business LED Monitor:

        I've had this monitor for approx. one and one half years. I use it with a MacBook Pro and also with an 09 Mini running Snow Leopard which I only use for a film scanning program that was never updated for Lion or above.

        Love the Thunderbolt port. Works great with Mini Display port on the Mini. Love the matte finish.

        I'm a writer and can stare at text for hours (I turn brightness down) without eye strain. Watching video from web or disc is beautiful on this monitor. Better than my 1080P TV.

        Price is good and three year warrantee is nice.

        Great Photo editing monitor

          Comments about Samsung S27A850D 27" 850 Series Business LED Monitor:

          Big monitor with higher than HD resolution and a very sharp picture--exactly what you need for photo editing. Another use for this big hi-res screen is Excel spreadsheets--you can see many columns and many rows at one time. Wow, it's a spreadsheet game changer. This monitor is plenty bright (I'm using at brightness level 13/100 for photo editing in a dimly lit room). Color also excellent. Great value. B&H price was $150 lower than a major online everything retailer! The built in USB 3.0 hub is a nice touch.

          Worth noting: B&H puts the monitor box inside a larger shipping carton. This is unlike many others who ship monitors in their original retail boxes. B&H obviously understands the risks of merchandise in the hands of UPS. Indeed, the outer carton had some knocks and dings, while the monitor box was untouched. Thanks, B&H.

          Only problem I had was with monitor profiles, and that--I mention only if you encounter this, not as a criticism of the monitor--took some research into what turned out to be a Windows 8 configuration fix and a Color Munki installation mod. Once I found the answers, all was fine.

              This monitor is OK but can not be calibrated. They talk about calibration but there is no options. And Samsung is no help at all not even returning my emails. I have contacted customer service and they do not get back to me except a general message.

              Buy another brand.

                I chose this monitor because I wanted a matte finish and was concerned with what I had read regarding the anti-glare coating of other competing monitors. I'd say Samsung's approach was just right to maintain clarity while reducing glare.

                  Just a great product: plenty of screen real estate, sharp pictures, great colors.

                  One tip, if you are using DVI, use the cables in the box. I tried to save a few seconds and use the DVI cables from my last Samsung monitors. The new cables are pinned-out differently. Spent an hour on the phone with Samsung support and they never bothered to ask. I found out by trial and error.

                            This is a replacement for a dying Dell 24" monitor. I love the extra pixels. It's bright, the non-reflective finish is excellent, and it runs nice and cool. I don't notice any problems with images changing colors or brightness when viewed from different angles. I had no problems calibrating the monitor. Overall, I'm very happy, especially given the price.
