    Samsung’s SyncMaster oozes class; the slim bezel with solid metal trim and alloy base not only give a designer look, but also elegantly hide the sockets (including a USB hub) and (woefully underpowered) speakers.

    The touch sensitive-buttons on the stand upright only show when powered up, which is a neat touch.

    Samsung’s PLS technology offers rich blacks and lots of contrast over a wide viewing angle on the 2560×1440-pixel, 27-inch display.

    Colour accuracy isn’t perfect but is still very good, as each monitor is calibrated by hand in the factory.

    Pros: Stunning looks and solid performance on a high-resolution panel
    Cons: Excellent aesthetics let down by sub-par audio and edge darkness

    Score: 92%
