PRODUCT WALKTHOUGH & PICTORIAL
To start you will notice that even though this is a large LCD monitor, Samsung has chosen to still keep the outer bezel as thin as possible. With a bezel width of only 7/8 of an inch, this monitor looks even larger than its' 27 inch diagonal widescreen measurements. But even though the bezel is thin, this monitor is still very rigid and well constructed.
Starting from the base and moving up, the 275T has a large circular base which allows for a full 90 degrees of movement with minimal effort. Thankfully this is included seeing it wouldn't be an easy task to move when you are dealing with a substantial monitor.
Moving up, you come to the main control panel which allows you to access the features and configuration menus needed for setting up your new monitor.
Menu - Allows access to your configuration menu for changing your color, contrast and signal input configuration.
Navigation Up / Down Keys - Allows you to navigate through the menu and also enables the brightness and preset contrast controls when the menu command is not enabled.
Source - Allows you to change the signal input source from the various connections available on the rear and side panels.
Auto - Auto-configuration button to allow the monitor to configure and align itself while using an analog VGA connection. (Not available while using a DVI cable)
PIP (Picture in Picture) - Functionality which allows you to use your monitor for computer use and view external video content at the same time.
As you can see above, I have my standard computer desktop and I am also viewing some camcorder footage of a severe thunderstorm I recorded a couple years ago. the feature is quite handy but without any speakers, you will be viewing the video only.
