Samsung Gaming Monitor Review 2012 – 2013

Best Samsung Monitors for Gaming

Samsung is known for their quality electronics and most especially their televisions and monitors. In this post we’ll review the 4 best rated Samsung monitors for PC gaming.

Samsung S27A950D Review

A 27 Inch 3D Gaming Monitor to Be Proud of:

3D gaming isn’t cheap, but if you have the extra cash, then you’ll want to purchase the right monitor. There are 2 highly rated 27 inch 3D gaming monitors this year that you should consider, the Samsung S27A950D and the Acer HN274H BMIIID.

Smooth, Detailed, and Accurate Picture

These days you should expect that any monitor above 22 inches have full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution. Beyond this the detail, clarity, and smoothness of the Samsung S27A950D is accentuated with a 120 hertz refresh rate and 2ms response time. It also uses the new 3D HyperReal Engine which helps to optimize your game’s 3D effects. This along with the 16.7 Million colors that can be displayed on it give it one of the best pictures available. Another key difference between this and other monitors boasting 120hz refresh times is that this display gives you that refresh rate in both 3D and 2D. If you look elsewhere, then be sure to look for similar specifications.

Comes with 3D Kit

This monitor comes Complete with a 3D kit that contains a paor of 3D glasses and DDD’s TriDef 3D gaming software. It’s optimized to work especially with the LED backlight in order to let through twice as much ambient light as other models with similar specifications.

Additional Technical Details:

Viewing angle 170°(H) / 160°(V), 300 cd/m2 brightness rating, dynamic contrast ratio 1,000,000:1, Displayport and HDMI connectors, Tilt: 0 – 20°, and a 3 year parts and labor warranty.


Overall this is a pricey monitor but well worth it if you have the extra cash. The sting is definitely offset with the price that you’d pay for a 3D kit separately. Still, if you don’t plan on playing in 3D, then one of the other Samsung Monitors below might be a good alternative.

2D Samsung 27 Inch monitors

If you don’t want a 3D gaming monitor but still want a large 27 inch monitor from Samsung, then there are really two models you should take a look at; the Samsung S27A350H (LED backlight) and the Samsung P2770FH. Both have low response times and are built with gaming grade specifications.

A Budget Samsung Monitor Option – Samsung PX2370

The Samsung PX2370 has become so popular that it’s hardly staying in stock at Amazon. Images are first class with 1920 x 1080p resolution, a 2ms response time, and 100 % sRGB color standard reproduction. A dynamic contrast ratio of 5M:1 also gives you deeper and more accurate blacks. If you can still find it available, then we highly recommend it.

Overall you pay a premium when purchasing a Samsung monitor but in return you know you’re getting a quality piece of equipment that will last you several years to come.
