great buy its big, but looks good. it was well packed. had it for a week. love it.
As others have said, this is a quality screen, so for the money, I believe it's a really good deal. Remote controll is included. The bezel and stand of mine where dusty and scratched, but function properly.
Samsung TV and Monitor10/9/2012
Using as a large screen desk top monitor. Excellent performance.
Crisp Picture, Stylish, Affordable10/5/2012
Great value on this refurbished model. Although it did not come in factory packaging, it looked and functioned like it was brand new. I have used it as both a TV and a computer monitor, and the picture is sharp and consistent in both applications. I would recommend both the product and seller. Unlike some previous reviews, my monitor did come with a manual, and also a VGA cable to attach my computer.
Samsung TV / Monitor8/28/2012
Just what I was looking for. The quality of a Samsung but at a great price due to the refurbished value. Works well, nice picture, connected right to the Mac Mini using the DVI input. Excellent.
Good Value, Some compromises8/26/2012
Monitor came with no manual or CD. Easy to get from Samsung. Lots of options for input /output would make a great TV/PC Monitor/Game screen for bedroom or dorm. Remote is very handy for menu access. Limited adjustment for DVI. Biggest complaint-no tilt adjustment. For desktop use, mine leans forward about 10 degrees. For the refurb price, I'll build a wedge!
Refurbished good as new8/25/2012
My refurbished monitor arrived in brand-new condition.
Not user friendly.8/23/2012
I wanted to return this display but decided to live with glary text. Big thumbs downs = snazzy touch-activated controls thoughtlessly designed (sure to fail first over time) +defaults are not intelligent. I spent an hour just trying to adjust contrast, etc. Should not be this way.
I love this Monitor. I had an older Monitor before and as my wife used to say it's time to upgrade the old clunker. The shipment was on time. The prices have dramatically dropped which made it affordable for me. I have no complaints and it has run smoothly with no glitches.
This is our third one7/23/2012
Fantastic digital tuner, don't need cable box! THis is our third exact set and all are beautiful.
I absolutely LOVE this thing. I use it for a computer monitor mainly, but have also had cable hooked up to it. Picture is amazing and it gives SO much desktop real estate when using with computer. Don't expect to sit across the room when using as a monitor, or you'll have to crank up the resolution, but works wonderful at a desk like a normal computer monitor. totally worth every penny!
Works great but needs instructions. I did find online and it was refurbished . Would buy from agian.
I ordered a refurbished model and it has performed wonderfully. Great picture either as a TV or as a Monitor.
This monitor/TV was one of the most pleasant surprises in my recent memory. When my 21 inch View Sonic computer monitor died, I thought I would get another View Sonic - but Buy.com had the Samsung featured and the price was right, so I bought it. "Crystal Clear" doesn't do justice to the beauty of the display. Dispite the 27 inch size, pictures have sharp, crisp edges, and the color saturation was phenomenal right out of the box. I had not read enough of the description, so I was a bit surprised to find a remote and batteries in the box, but when connected to the cable, this television has the best picture of any in my home. My home computer has a freestanding speaker system, but I was surprised when I turned off my speaker volume the sound was the same. That's when I discovered the awesome sound quality of the Samsung built in speakers! The "tinny" quality most TV speakers have is not present with this one, and the capacitive touch controls are responsive and quick. (another unexpected but pleasant surprise) I am a computer geek who loves technology gadgets, and I cannot recall the last time something made me this happy/proud to own. I have recommended this monitor/TV to my friends, and now I unreservedly recommend it to you - and I am buying two more for my kids.
Samsung 27" monitor/TV7/10/2012
Amazing product, with the ability to hook up computer, game console, Cable TV or antenna, with a smart and well laid out remote.
Best value out there.6/13/2012
Nice unit. Highly recommend.
Good TV product to have at everyone home.
It has a very large easy to read screen with many options to change how it displays. The HDTV tuner in it is great as-well, picks up all of my channels and quickly changes between them.
Amazing screen if you plan on using both a computer and game systems/TV/DVD on it. Great picture quality, sturdy (enough) construction, easy to use menu and settings.
I'm exceptionally pleased with this unit. The size is just right for displaying two full-size windows simultaneously, side-by-side. Graphics and text are sharp and colors are great.
I love this monitor5/28/2012
A great TV as well as a great monitor. If you're going to use this as a text-reading monitor, it's not the best since the monitor is big and overwhelming, but it's a wonderful monitor to project Netflix movies, youtube videos, etc.
Love it !5/27/2012
Enjoy this monitor -- it is a real beauty! I have been using it for 4-5 days now and I am very impressed by its brilliance, clarity, & color. Also, if you have not yet noticed the difference between a 24" and 27" monitor, it is significant. Even my 9-year old daughter said, "This is much bigger!" It really is much bigger. I love it !
This Samsung is a nice hybrid. It works great as a computer monitor and serves admirably as an HDTV. The picture quality is great--very clear.
Very pleased with TV, especially considering the price. Good deal.
Ok, I'm one of those who always want to get a product that can be used for different purposes and Samsung P2770HD LCD TV sparked my interest. This review is for those who keep saying this is not a good PC monitor (I can tell you right now that you are WRONG). I bought this and hooked it up using HDMI. I was initially surprised the reviews are right. Text seemed blurry but I DID NOT GIVE UP because I saw tons of MENU adjustments so I played around with it. I'm telling you once you do this, you will love this monitor and get it over its 2770H (no TV tuner) brother or any other dedicated LCD monitor.
this is tv is super great. i love it so much. you guy whose are looking for tv, should try this tv!!!!!!
Shipping was as promised! No delay and no broken boxes. The TV was a snap to set up and I was using it in 10 minutes. Click and it is your monitor screen for your computer! I use it mostly for the computer. I was worried about 27" being too big, but it is just right. I can see everything without squinting or getting too close.
bought this monitor a week ago ,great picture,best monitor ihave ever had .i am 64 years old needed a large screen.took out of box,set to pc.made no adjustments great picture,i use bose speakers.got a very good price from buy.com on cyber monday 269.00 plus free shipping.i used vga cable ,still a very good picture
Great monitor for the price.9/24/2011
I purchased this monitor refurbished with a 3 year square trade warranty. Having owned it for a week so far, I can say the following: Pros: - The quality of the image is great - The design is nice - The price can't be beat for a 27" - Has an HDTV tuner w/HDMI input Cons: - Touch-screen controls are not clearly labeled and are only backlit - Touch-screen controls are inaccurate and hard to access - The monitor does not have tilt/swivel/height adjustment (but for the price I'm not complaining, just mentioning it) Overall I'm very satisfied with the purchase so far.
Super deal. HDMI out works with TWEAK7/15/2011
This monitor works GREAT with HDMI out from my laptop. FYI, if you are having HDMI resolution problems, you'll want to search this monitor on that "other" big name site that starts with "A". The first review there posts the easy HDMI fix! I got this monitor for $259 including free shipping which was a NO BRAINER!! You do not have to go into "GAME MODE" like the previous review said: Here's what you do: (and you can do this while you're PC is ON up so you can see the display change right before your eyes!) 1. Open MENU 2. Go to "Input" 3. Select "Edit Name" to open up the "Edit Name" sub menu. 4. Scroll down to "HDMI" and select it, (watch carefully) 5. Now assign "PC" or "DVI PC" to the HDMI setting and voila!!! *** I'm not sure what this setting is for, I thought it was just to give it some "name" assignment. But somehow changing this corrected the blurry/blocky text effect. After this, your PC display should be perfect. If text is still blurry, check if the display/resolution fills the entire screen. If not, this has to do with video card scaling option which can be easily adjusted from the video driver configuration. If you are using an ATI based video card, do these additional steps. (NVidia based video cards should also have an equivalent for this).
Some adjustment required, but great monitor once d4/15/2011
Like most TN panels, you have to fiddle with gamma and contrast settings a bit to get decent color and contrast, but once done, it looks very nice. The manual says it can do native resolution through the D-Sub, but I could not get that to work at anything over 1366x768 so had to use the HDMI for native resolution. As a result, I had to go deep into the settings menu to set "game mode" for the HDMI and then adjust timings to get the text sharp and clear from the PC through the HDMI port. Only found this out through internet research as the manual didn't cover it well at all. A downside for HDMI is that monitor blanking/powerdown after inactivity is not supported through HDMI so I have to remember to turn it off when I get up. No biggie. As a TV, it scales standard def content incredibly cleanly - it has a very good scaler. Contrast and colors are great. Light bleed from the CCFL is minimal in our bedroom environment. Like most TN panels, contrast and color distortion is pretty bad more than about 20 degrees in the vertical direction from prime viewing angle, but again, not a real issue in our bedroom environment. First TV/Monitor combo I've owned that I've used as both, and I DO miss PiP, but at this price point, you're not gonna find that anyway.
Refurbished: Works great.11/29/2010
Arrived with the box undamaged. The outer bezel has a clearly visible scratch on the top ring. There is something rattling around inside it only when you lift it to move it. Picture quality is excellent.
Good, but doesn't have Picture in Picture11/27/2010
I bought this to replace my 19" monitor. It's a good monitor and a good TV (both are good, but not great, but that's the trade off you get buying a hybrid model), but a couple of older laptops & computers I have don't display well on it. The picture is somewhat blurry or hard to look at for one reason or another on my older machines. It might just be the video cards on those machines because the laptop I bought this year looks great. However, one of my biggest reasons for purchasing this TV/Monitor was because it says it comes with Picture in Picture, but it does not. I got rid of the 14" TV I had in my office figuring that I could use this as a TV or monitor, and then have the TV small at the top of the monitor if I wanted to see something while working. If I'd known it didn't have that feature I would have bought another model.
Good but not the perfect11/23/2010
Nice monitor and TV. But it does not have PIP (Picture in Picture) as described in the specs here. It is a good fit as bedroom set but if you are a professional designer etc. and looking for a monitor, this is not for you since 1080P is not enough resolution for a 27" monitor and it looks different when you compare with Cinema Display. I like it. The only dilemma that I have is not having PIP.
Excellent picture, sound was adequate, used as a display for a party. Was a low cost choice for a family gathering (with kids)to run various WII programs.
Incredible value Monitor9/15/2010
I purchased the 27" Samsung when I updated my computer system. I've added this as a second monitor to a 12" Dell I already have. The 27" Samsung SyncMaster P2770HD is very clear and bright. I use it specifically as a computer monitor. It provides lots of desktop space and a bit larger font than my old monitor. (Yes I am aware I can change resolutions on the old monitor, however running a monitor at it's native resolution provides the best quality) This monitor for me provodes lots of desktop space and very readable text. I'm at that age where I tend to lean into the monitor a little too much to read it. For $299, you can't beat it!
