I’ve never actually experienced Samsung electronics in terms of monitors. Since I bought my first PC when I was about 19, I’ve only ever had Viewsonic and Dell monitors, so I don’t have any personal experience of the Samsung brand. Have you? Please comment below if so!
I googled for reviews of the S27D390HS monitor and there are a few sites which can tell you a lot more about this item. One here on Digitaltrends scores the monitor with a 4 out of 5. There are many more customer reviews here on Amazon.com and you can read some personal comments too, such as:
I’m giving this 5 stars, because it’s awesome.
There are a few concerns about the stability of the base, with people saying it’s a bit flimsy for a 27” monitor. Keep that in mind… my partner has his monitors mounted on his desk on extendable arms, so if you plan on doing that, then the stability of the base wouldn’t be an issue at all.
