I suppose "pro" is a matter of degree. My definition is a review by someone who regularly reviews so he has comparative knowledge as opposed to a buyer who rates his as "cool".
It's for PC and Mac.
I believe the 970P had no separate OSD. You had to install the MagicTune software to be able to adjust the screen. That may be the case with the 971P, too. I prefer MagicTune to messing with OSD buttons.
Driver issue? I didn't know there was one.
Curiously, Newegg had the 971P (and the other new model, 931C) for a while, now not... and they're not listing them as "out of stock", just not listing them at all. I wonder what gives?
I've checked various sites for the 204T (20.1", UXGA version of the 940T, 970P), and it's mostly out of stock. I wonder if Samsung is coming with a 204T replacement with the same type panel as the 971P ??.
971P, the model is not S-PVA panel.
That's panel is just PVA panel.
Same model is selling in Korea as named as CX913P. It's panel is PVA. And also, CX913P model name is for Korea-internal name.
The model is same thing with 971P. (Samsung uses different model name for internal/external product.)
However, you can check the panel type of the 971P from Samsung's homepage.
There is no word like S-PVA in feature information page.
In specification page, it noticed as S-PVA, but it's wrong.
You can check it from Samsung via E-mail. I checked this via email, and Samsung ERMS replied they are wrong. I sent the URL of page contains wrong information to them. However, they did not modified the information still now.
