Ease of Use

I went from a dual-screen monitor to a single 27-inch LED screen and it's just amazing! Very happy with the performance and quality. I luv it so much, I'd order a second unit for my sister.

They were blurry especially in text. Flashed on and off constantly and unpredictably. red dots on most black backgrounds, just not close to the Dell monitors we replaced. with these. Return them or find somewhere else to use them. perhaps it might be the video driver on the laptop card is not powerful enough to drive the monitor. Either way ..horrible experience.

I like the monitor, but it took some adjustment

on 3/1/2012

I had to fiddle with the contrast, brightness, and other settings, but I'm pretty happy with the picture, although I still think I need to do some color calibration. It's a great value, though. Note that HDMI cable is not included (go to Also, my HDMI cable has a balun to cut down on electromagnetic interference, but this prevents the cable management cover in the back from being installed. I'm fine with it, but something to be aware of. It is *not* adviseable to use VGA. Read More

Product Overview

Conserving energy isn't simply just a trend but a new way of life. Samsung's LED backlighting technology provides MEGA Dynamic Contrast for crystal-clear image quality and detail along with a robust number of intelligent, Eco-friendly features. The SA550 is the smart way to conserve energy without compromising the performance of your monitor. The Eco Motion Sensor has the ability to sense the user's presence and will automatically shut off the monitor when you walk away. The Eco Light Sensor feature automatically optimizes the screen's brightness to reduce eye strain, while Eco Saving allows you to choose how much energy you'd like to save through an easy-to-use interface. The amount of energy you save is conveyed by an "Energy Tree" graphic so you can see if you're attaining your energy-saving goals.

In addition to these energy saving features, the SA550's has a gorgeous and innovate design. It features a Touch of Color finish, and its transparent stand sports a built-in compartment to hide unsightly cables.

Breakthrough Picture Quality with LED Technology
Samsung's LED monitors deliver a visually stunning picture quality that leaves you speechless. Just as you've seen in Samsung LED TV's, our LED monitors make colors more rich and the action more real than you've dreamed possible. Let the story come to life with vivid colors and crystal-clear detail.

Optimize Your Viewing Experience with Eco Light Sensor
Take the strain out of watching images on your monitor with Samsung's Eco Light Sensor. The Eco Light Sensor automatically adjusts the brightness of the Samsung LED Monitor by measuring the intensity of the light within the room. By controlling the amount of light used to create its images, the SA550 monitor reduces eye strain while being extremely energy efficient. Plus, the Eco Light Sensor provides up to nine adjustable sensitivity and brightness settings so you can enjoy a lighting environment that's most comfortable for you.

Eco Motion Sensor Knows When It's Being Watched
Using a highly advanced sensor, the Samsung LED Monitor can detect if someone's watching it or not. If you walk away, the built-in Eco Motion Sensor will automatically shut off the monitor after a few minutes, making it easy on your energy bills. The Eco Motion Sensor responds to body temperature so you know that it won't turn on unless someone is in front of it. That means the monitor will automatically turn off if you've stepped away for a long period of time or simply forgot to shut it off.

Perfect from Every Angle with MagicAngle
Ever look at your monitor from an angle? Did the display look washed out, distorted or just hard to see? Samsung's MagicAngle technology improves the off-angle viewing performance of the monitor so that it maintains superb image quality even if you are leaning back, lying down, or have the monitor mounted on the wall. Activating MagicAngle is simple. Just go into the monitor menu and select your screen position from one of four monitor angle settings. Once set, you can enjoy images in full clarity and color depth no matter what position the monitor is facing.

Watch Full 1080p HD Video with HDMI
Monitors aren't just for computers any more. Now you can watch TV programs, movies, or play your game console on your monitor too. With the SA550's HDMI port, connect to your cable/satellite box, BluRay player, HD game system, or any other device with an HDMI output. Best of all, you can connect your computer to a different port (like VGA) and switch back and forth without having to unplug anything. To switch between inputs, press the "Source" button on the monitor.

Ultra-Slim Design with Touch of Color Finish & Cable Manager
Make an artistic statement with a design that naturally blends subtle color gradations into the standard computer monitor frame. Samsung's Touch of Color (ToC) design gives the glossy piano-black bezel frame a hint of red for a monitor that enhances any space. Also, LED technology enables striking, ultra-thin displays. As slim as 16.5 mm, LED monitors add elegance to your desk. They are also very lightweight, making them easy to lift and move. The SA550 also features snap-off covers on the neck which eliminate cable clutter. This simple design feature helps your desk stay neat and clean.
