On Dell when you move your hand close or finger, the button lights, so you can easily find where to push to turn it on.

For general computing I used the Samsung, but for color accuracy and wider color gamut for photo editing I used the old CRT Viewsonic.

Personally, I find it great and it's no better yet no worse than an IPS monitor (as I said, I am coming from a Dell U2711).

I purchased this for quality text rendering...resolution and general business applications/systems management. My prior monitor was the PVA panel based Samsung 214T.... a higher end display also, which has served me well over the years. Comparing the two side by side is almost comical. The clarity, brightness and contrast of this monitor are so far superior....it is not comparable. This could be partly due to the PVAs age (not sure). I am still using the Samsung 214T in an extended display config (good for conference calls and trainings I can move to the side)... When I move a window from the PLS to the PVA it is like going from a laser printer to dot matrix -- almost that profound. I have never seen a monitor so sharp and clear with text. Granted I have not owned a professional IPS monitor like high-end NEC etc... Yet I suspect it couldn't get much better than this for text clarity.

The anti-reflective treatment on this monitor is absolutely perfect (at least to my eyes) --- text is razor sharp with no fuzziness....yet no reflectivity from room lights that I can detect. I thought my 214T AR coat was good.....but now it looks grainy by comparison. Not sure what Samsung did here...but WOW. I have read some comments about other competing monitors, some more expensive, that have annoying artifacts induced by their screen treatments.

As far as configuration, I just set it for "Magic Brightness" and setup "Dynamic Contrast" mode...and let the monitor figure out things. Left everything else stock settings. Depending on what is on the screen..the brightness and contrast modulates. Generally, these changes are helpful. I wouldn't use this mode for watching movies critically, but it seems to make sense for typical working applications.

I've had this monitor for over a month now. Coming from Dell U2711, it's refreshing to look at this monitor due to a much milder, which means better, anti-glare(AG) coating. Text don't look fuzzy anymore and this is especially important because small dot pitch due to the high resolution in a 27" monitor.

Also because of this monitor using LED, it is much lighter to mount on a Ergotron arm and place on the desk because of it's much lighter weight. LED also means much less power consumption.

As far as back light bleeding, I don't notice anything serious, even from watching movies with dark scenes in a dark room and it's definitely not a concern for daily use.

Another reviewer mentioned that there is problem with viewing angles. Personally, I find it great and it's no better yet no worse than an IPS monitor (as I said, I am coming from a Dell U2711).

I do observe with my naked eyes that the Dell U2711 can generate slightly richer(more) color (and technically it has more color coverage, if you search for detailed reviews). But because of the stated AG coating problem, this Samsung monitor is probably your best bet for a 27" 2560 X 1440 resolution monitor up to date (3/28/2012).

Oh, if you use the stand, it is very good and flexible for height adjustment.

Update on 10/12/2012: The model number for this monitor is S27A850D for your convenience as it's not listed in the description.

Magnificent resolution. For photography, the colors are spot on after calibration (Coloreyes Pro, Spyder 3), and ports are plentiful. Also (with Windows) run ClearType and inspect it closely with a magnifier.

The Samsung variant on IPS is very good but comparing it with an iPad 2 and other IPS screens, it does show a color shift at the widest edges along with backlight bleed-through in the lower corners. This is with my head stationary in the horizontal center of the screen, 3/4 up on the vertical. It is a pretty minor issue and is not noticeable with normal photographs but is evident with internet browsing and file management. It wouldn't be much of an issue if Samsung didn't make such strong claims for its "PLS" variation on the IPS display. I'm keeping it and reveling in viewing my photos again in such wonderful color and resolution.

Suggestion: If you buy from Amazon Marketplace, be sure to check the company's return policy. I bought an HP LP2475w through the marketplace that had a horrible color cast - green on the left to pink on the right. I had to fight for an RMA, took 2 weeks and threats, and am still waiting (over a month now) for credit as they have to have it "inspected." When I buy through amazon.com, I've not had problems with returns.

This is my 4th LCD monitor I use as web designer, mixed stuff, gaming, video editing, etc.
The best one I've ever seen live.

At this moment I'm using two Dell UltraSharp U2711-s at office. Those ones are not LED and are tagged as a pro monitors.
In presets they have sRGB and Adobe RGB. Samsung S27A850D does not have these standards as predefined presets -- but I've managed to set and tune them up easily.

All the time when I'm working in Photoshop I have a feeling that this monitor has higher density of pixels (didn't count it yet).
Brightness 5*, Colors 5*, Response 5*

I'm comparing my home Samsung monitor with office DELLs all the time. Like this one much more!!! Quite, easy a comfortable to work, a pleasure!!!
Another pros is having USB3 on monitor, very handy. Has few more minor nice features. OSD is not bad, could be better...
Seems like can support 3D with nVidia, but didn't try it yet, I guess with 24P and not 60P should work.

Cons:
- Standing on just one feet, easy-shake-able (vs Dells).
- No lights on monitor when turned off. On Dell when you move your hand close or finger, the button lights, so you can easily find where to push to turn it on. For this Samsung I have to touch and try to find out where to push.
- Dell has multi-card reader on the side -- very useful and would be nice to have on this monitor too.

I would give 9 stars from 10.
