For those of us without disposable incomes, spending more than a couple hundred dollars on a monitor requires a little justification. When it comes to expensive monitors, there's usually a professional justification, as pro graphics artists require precise image clarity. The S27A850D is decently priced for a professional monitor of its size, but does it offer enough in performance and features to really make it a good investment?
Unlike most professional monitors, the S27A850D has a relatively thin panel. Actually, even compared with many smaller LED-based monitors, the profile is thin, at least in its initial depth. The connections portion does add a bit more depth.
