|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.

GREAT PIECE AND LIKED IT
Strange results - urgh4/4/2013
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.
Great product--Great Value9/28/2012
Great refurbished product--who would have known it wasn't brand new
Great monitor. Love it.9/12/2012
Couldn't be happier. Great price.
Worked perfectly right out of the box6/26/2012
It was a good thing since it didn't come with directions. But honestly, it was so simple to hook up I was up an running in less than 10 minutes.
Samsung SA550 27" (S27A550H)6/25/2012
Great picture quality and a wealth of image adjustments. Very good buy for the price class and feature set.
I purchased this product to replace a seven year old 14" LCD television that i use on my kitchen countertop. Not only does this up-size my screen size significantly, but it still--just barely--fits between the counter and the upper cabinets while on its standard tabletop pedestal. But this television's location is right next to where I usually park with my notebook computer when I am working at home. This monitor makes it easy for me to extend my Windows desktop onto a 23" second monitor, which is similar to what I have configured in my office. This is great when working with multiple windows, but it is also great if I want to watch an HD movie in full screen on Netflix while working on my computer on the built-in monitor. For having been sold as a reconditioned product, it was indistinguishable from brand new. There were no manuals, but physical condition was perfect, and there are no dead pixels. Picture quality appears very good, and audio quality is perfectly decent for built-in speakers.
This monitor is a good deal for the price. 27" display is crisp and clear and can be viewed from many angles. I would recommend it to all.
White spot on screen6/15/2012
Received monitor today. All is working and the size is impressive - I am used to working on 24" monitors. HOWEVER, there is a white spot on the screen that is annoying. It is very visible with a light background. Plan to contact seller for a replacement or refund.
The monitor itself produces a crisp, clear image that is really incredible. I have a Samsung television that has generated a lot of brand loyalty so I was friendly to the idea of this monitor from the beginning but the monitor's image quality exceeded even my high expectations.
I researched monitor options several times, but when my old monitor died, I knew that then I really had to buy a new one and researched again. I wanted the larger screen and one that was LED instead of LCD. I have good speakers so speakers or their quality was not an issue for me. It was easy to set up and recognized by my computer... wow! The screen was so bright right out the box that I dimmed the display light by almost 20%. I do photo editing and the colors on the screen are perfect without me needing to adjust anything. There is no movement to adjust the tilt of the screen, but that has not been an issue for me. All in all, I'm delighted with my new monitor!
Happy with this product6/5/2012
My experience with Samsung is very good. They hold up well and my first one is still in use for my back up computer now. I love the image quailty very much. This LED monitor is much better then the LCD monitors.
Great recreational monitor5/30/2012
Response time, size, color/crispness, gaming grade, sleek. The picture quality is excellent and very clear. The colors are either over-exaggerated or underwhelming.
Really easy to set up, very good looking monitor. This monitor is pretty awesome. It looks nice because of the picture quality and it's also slim.
The monitor kept blinking off & on, so it simply did not work.
Bought this refurbished monitor for a couple of customers, although not an ips panel its darn close
Samsung 27 Inch LED monitor is awesome!4/24/2012
What a fantastic monitor for $239. I love the 1920x1080 resolution from my 23", thought this would be a great upgrade. Watching movies and playing games is an absolute pleasure on this monitor.
Nice 27" Monitor, able to split screen with Samsun4/15/2012
This is a very nice monitor, very light in weight. The display body is sleek and beautiful. Power and HDMI cord hide nicely in the stand. 27" size is impressive. Am able to function with one monitor now, where previously I was using 2 units. At 40 watts, its extremely efficient.

COLOR IS POOR3/26/2012
Not happy at all with the color, Purchased a refurbished monitor. I spent 4 hours playing with the controls to see if I could get the colors and brightness to look half way good and never could get the monitor brightness or colors to look even a little good. The screen quality was horrible.
Did not work out of box3/24/2012
Legend Micro Refurbished model did not work out of the box.
Got this very quickly, had one pixel out but for the price I can't complain. Great color and controls. Works beautifully.
Nicest monitor I've ever owned. LOVE the two of them that I'm using in tandem!!!
Great monitor at a great price3/21/2012
It doesn't get any easier than this for unpack>connect>enjoy. This monitor looked great from the moment it was turned up on my Win7 system. Settings are a piece of cake to tweak. Video looks superb.
Loving my 27" LED3/21/2012
Quick shipping, easy setup, flawless picture, just what I wanted!!!!
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.
Works great, nice screen3/7/2012
This monitor was just what I expected from Samsung. Could not be more pleased.
Refurbished Samsung monitor.3/1/2012
I received the monitor in perfect condition in a resonable timeframe and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
I like the monitor, but it took some adjustment3/1/2012
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 monoprice.com). 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.
