    The Samsung S27A850D, the first monitor equipped with Samsung’s Plane Line Switching technology, is a powerful player in the market. Having a neat and elegant design, it is visually appealing.


    To further attract consumers, its internal features are distinct and worth the money. The 27-inch Samsung S27A850D provides a full HD resolution of 2,560x1,440 pixels; hence you know its main target market are professional graphic artists who are continuously seeking out the highest quality monitors, and hardcore gamers who prioritize the hardware so as to provide the maximum gaming experience. Despite its dimensions, the profile is pleasing to the eyes. The tubular stand that can go up and down within 150mm, coupled with a nicely built rectangular base ensures the user optimum stability.


    Despite the thin design that may come as worrisome for others, users can expect premium build quality from this monitor. Hardware wise, consumers of all types might want to try the Samsung S27A850D because it is really neat on the table. It saves up space, and it perfectly suits a minimalist setting. Surprisingly, it only weighs 15 pounds which makes way for easy transferring if necessary. One of its key features, the Plane Line Switching technology allows the user to employ a higher level of brightness without having to worry about cost because there is minimal effect on power consumption.


    You do not have to worry then in maximizing its features that you will tend to do with other monitors that do not do so well when it comes to power consumption. This is a feature that heavy and meticulous users are sure to appreciate. The Samsung S27A850D boasts of complete connectivity. The dual DVI sockets, Display Port, and three-port USB hub are all dependable. These ports are also positioned in a way that is most convenient for users who connects and disconnects cables every now and then.


    The Samsung S27A850D provides quality performance. The wide viewing angles allow good visual experience. In addition, there is excellent pixel responsiveness and relatively decent contrast ratio. However, the monitor cannot be considered perfect due to flaws with the screen. Color accuracy is notably disappointing and the luminance is exaggeratingly high. Among the 27” monitors in the market, the Samsung S27A850D is the best option there is.


    Despite a couple of flaws, it is generally packed with impressive features. Undoubtedly, it is a powerful contender among products intended for graphic professionals. Apart from the Samsung technologies it is equipped with, there is fairly nothing new with the Samsung S27A850D, but it provides dependable and complete set of functional features.
