This review is from: Samsung P2770FH 27-Inch Full HD LCD Monitor (Rose Black) (Electronics)
I got this monitor for a great deal at a local warehouse store. It looks amazing and it's huuuuge. And surprisingly, it's super light (which makes it easy to pick up / install). One of the things I like about it is the audio out and optical audio out ports on the back of the monitor. This makes it so that I can plug in my speakers directly into the monitor as opposed to the back of my computer and it's easy to use multiple HDMI devices without having to mess with audio input plugs.
I did only buy this a couple days ago, so I wouldn't be aware of any long-term issues; but it's been working like a champ so far. The main reason I wanted to post this review is because of all the misleading bad reviews on here...
The people posting bad reviews on here have some serious hangups. One person is complaining about his video card being sub-par, but blames the monitor anyway. Another guy's comment is complaining about the number of HDMI ports (honestly, why would you need more than one for a monitor?) and false advertising (I haven't seen any site claim that there are 2 hdmi pots). The people who experienced touch button issues are probably validated, but I have had zero problems using those buttons. One person also mentioned that larger monitors should have higher resolutions, and such monitors do exist (for about $1,000); however, you shouldn't expect that from a monitor in this price range.

Thank you for a sensible review. I am wondering how you find it now, that you have had it for a while?

Hey, glad to help. So far the monitor has still been great for me. For a period of time, there were some audio issues related to HDMI audio when waking up from sleep mode; however, that turned out to be a Windows 7 issue that was fixed by a Microsoft release.
The touch buttons have still been working great for me ... so everything from my previous review is still accurate :)

nobody ya know says:
Can you adjust the colors to an industry STANDARD?
Most of the monitors can not be adjusted manually for brightness and contrast to the 'standard' colors and settings.
I do a lot of video and not one monitor shows it the same color or brightness. If I can adjust it to 'standard' industry settings I'd be happy.

Why would you need more than one HDMI port? If you also have a XBox 360 or PS3 you do. Some people use their computer monitor for more than just their PC.

one solution that works great for me is an auto hdmi switch box. Auto detects (or can push a manual button) when a device is plugged in to one of it's 5 hdmi ports. About $15-20.

They refer to the HDMI connector in a plural fashion in the product description causing some to believe there are more than one.
"Samsung's HDMI connections provide the fastest, most secure way of connecting high-definition devices and experiencing the joys of digital output in its purest form."
