SAMSUNG SA850/S27A850D LED MONITOR INTRODUCTION
For most consumers and gamers needing a monitor that supported resulutions over 1900x1080, they were left with few options other than to go up to a 30 inch monitor and spend the extra money. Take for instance the Dell UltraSharp U3011. At a price of over US$1300 at the time of this this review, it can't be considered a cheap alternative. Dell has also jumped on to the high resolution bandwagon and released their own 27 inch version with 2560x1440 support which still rings the cash register up to US$900.
Today I am reviewing Samsung's answer to the competition, the SA850 (S27A850D). Not only does it support 2560x1440, it also has a couple advantages over the other options you might be considering. The first is the utilization of Samsung's new PLS Matrix (Plane to Line Switching) technology which promises better colour reproduction and much better viewing angles over the standard LCD technology used today. Add in an integrated USB 3.0 hub, carry handle and the old school ability to rotate the screen 90 degrees to take advantage of some portrait viewing, and you have quite a complete package.
