Samsung SyncMaster T27A950D review: Optimized for movies, not so much for games

A full review of the Samsung SyncMaster T27A950D.

At two different points earlier this year I got a chance to see the Samsung SyncMaster T27A950D under controlled conditions. Each time the monitor wowed me with its glossy presentation of movies with deep blacks, brilliant color, and a seemingly very high contrast.

Controlled demos are one thing, though, and how a device performs in labs tests under a much more discriminating eye can be something else. Check out our full review on the T27A950D here .

I'll tell you this though, right from the get-go. If you're expecting a great 3D gaming monitor, you may want to take a closer look at the monitor's model name. The T27A950D is optimized for 2D and 3D movies; however, the S27A950D is the model Samsung optimized for 3D gaming as it includes a 120hz-supporting dual link DVI port. Still, check out the full T27A950D review, as it's still pretty cool.
