I've been shopping around for a new 27" monitor recently and most retailers don't sell 27" models unless you buy online. Since I prefer to buy larger more expensive parts direct from local store for easy exchanges or returns. However our local Costco has 2 27" Samsung monitors for sale. Since Samsung seems to have a fairly good rep I figure I'll try them. Now I just have to decide which monitor. The first is the S27A550H and honestly seems to be the better deal since it has more features and slightly better reviews. This one was 349.99. The second was the P2770FH for 279.99. This one seemed to also get good reviews. So basicaly what I'm asking is if paying the extra 70 bucks is worth it?

If you chose to buy dell, you get a perfect panel guaranty (on their ultrasharps) plus in home warranty.

However, samsung makes a good monitor for general use. I have never seen a good panel from them, but I am only one person. My last samsung TV I exchanged 6 times looking for something that didn't have horrible streaking. When I did, it died and I played the exchange game again. Their phone warranty service reps are great once you reach level 2. And before that, I had issues with dead pixels on a monitor. Thats when I switched to Dell.

*as far as features go. I'd ask yourself if you are going to use them. I use my extra inputs to connect my TV and Xbox. The USB hub is great as well.
