    Samsung launched a new PC monitor targeting 3D gaming (as in gaming with stereo 3D). The SyncMaster S27A750D is a 27-inch LED-backlit LCD monitor that is geared for stereo 3D, thanks to support for 120 Hz refresh rate. The display boasts a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, with 2 ms (GTG) response time. Other panel specifications include 10,000,000:1 Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 1,000:1 static contrast ratio, and 300 cd/m² brightness.

    The SyncMaster S27A750D is equipped with ambient light sensors to adjust brightness accordingly, and a motion sensor that detects if the user is away, so it can dim down the panel and save power in the process. Display inputs include HDMI and DisplayPort. A pair of 3D shutter glasses come bundled. The SyncMaster S27A750D is priced at €518, on pre-order.

    I agree. This is way too expensive, even at launch. A similar 23"/24" from Samsung is like $500. This new model looks to be like double that amount:slap:

    Did you guys just skip over the part about 3D and 120 Hz refresh rate at 2 ms GTG response time? Samsung does not have a similar model for cheaper. All of their 27" 3D monitors are in this price range.

    And not to forget ... HOW many monitors have you seen with full-hd + 3D + 27"

    SAMSUNG S23A750D Black 23" 2ms Full HD 3D LED Back...

    23", LED, 3D, Full HD, 250 cd/m2.


    Your telling me a $500 jump is justifiable for 4 extra inches and 50 cd/m2 more brightness? This is the same exact model with barely anything extra. If it hits the states like I think it will, they will charge $1,000 for this thing.

    No. :shadedshu more like EPIC FAIL. Unless this monitor can produce 3d images without the glasses or has professional applications......and even then its still not a reasonable investment .
    Exchange rates.. my bad no so out of line after all

    Well first the price in USD is around $750: http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert/?Amount=518&From=EUR&To=USD

    And yes I am saying 4" diagonally for 3D is worth an extra $200.

    Euros Easy, Euros.

    That price is wrong....at least its probably the RRP which is way higher than real price.

    This monitor is old news, we discussed it 6 months ago. Anyway the 27" monitor is for sale in Australia for around $490(aussie dollar is the same as US right now), so around 350 Euro.

    The 23" is around $380AUD or 270 Euro and this is a 120Hz 3D displayport monitor with excellent image quality.

    The only other 120Hz 3D 27" is the Acer for $800 US (500 Euro) so this monitor is cheap for a 120Hz monitor.

    Within a year or so all gamers will have a 120Hz monitor.....

    Always the same thing with the euro... :banghead:

    You just can't convert the currency. There's many factors that make euro price higher than US prices, mainly taxes and a good bit of ripping us off, but that's our own issue, not for those in the US.

    The 23" monitor that in the US costs $469, in EU costs €419. That's how it works, how each market works (sadly for us EU citizens).

    €518 in EU and $583 in US for the 27" seems like a bargain in comparison.

    Jesus. You could probably get an Eyefinity-setup with 3 1920x1080 monitors for that price. Might not be LED-backlit or have the best quality, but still, I'd rather have surround view than 3D-view if the two cost the same.

    I've been living in the past for a bit then. Because I was still thinking that the Euro was almost 2x the U.S. Dollar. Silly me :slap:
    $750 is decent for that size monitor, with all it's bells and whistles.

    it is pretty common for internet retailers to do a straight 1-1 conversion regardless of exchange rate.

    Comparing 22-23" to 27" is ridiculous, try a big one and you won't go back to a smaller one. The price of this monitor is very good.

    They are not 2 different tech's, ie: you have 120hz, and bam you have 3d also

    Still for a 27" monitor at 1080p it is horribly overpriced and under spec'd, in all honesty I could care less about 3d ffs, give me some more real estate especially on a 27" monitor, 1900x1200(+upwards) would be nice and not any more expensive to produce, 3d or not for $600 there are much better 27" monitors out there for that kind of money, I mean who do they think they are? Apple??

    actually there isnt a single 27" 1080p 120hz 3D monitor that boasts Samsung quality for significanly less money on sale in the US.

    I don't think there are any 3d monitors in that size for cheaper, regardless of quality.
