A fire rises

The Samsung SyncMaster S27B970 nails it in performance and looks, but asks a hefty price. If you're OK with that price, you won't be disappointed.

Profile

Not the thinnest profile, but I wouldn't call it fat, either. But, that's mostly because of the monitor's low self-esteem.

Saucer section

The saucer section -- I mean, the foot stand is pretty unique-looking.

The ports

The ports from left: USB upstream, DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI. Plugging DisplayPort in isn't a problem. It's when attempting to remove the cable that the real fun begins.

This. This is why we can't have nice things. The space between the DisplayPort release button and the monitor is too narrow for a finger to get in. So, for this poor DisplayPort cable, we had to get a little rough.

USB times two

Two USB downstream ports on the side of the foot stand. Convenient.
