Great color quality. Lots of video ports. Ergonomic stand. Wide viewing angles.
A bit pricey. No auto-pivot function. No USB ports
Design and Features Unlike the gorgeous Samsung Series 9 S27B970D, another 27-inch PLS monitor, the PB278Q is fairly plain looking. The 27-inch panel resides in a 2.8-inch thick matte black cabinet with relatively thin (0.75-inch) bezels and a thin, barel...
