Just Released Three Months Ago
As one of the newer flatpanel monitors, this PC display is likely to have more advanced features.
Samsung Has Good Flatpanel Monitor Reviews
Samsung is one of the better rated PC display manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Samsung also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

The number of cables included found on the C27F390FHU is more than most latest comparable spec PC displays. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC|HDMI are also found on this PC monitor.
1080p Video Mode
This PC monitor has a 1080i|1080p video mode, which is the most frequently found video mode on new PC displays.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
Most of the other latest medium monitors have a built-in speaker, however the C27F390FHU does not have a built-in speaker.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Acer CB271H (£177.84) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Most new PC displays do not have an integrated card reader. The Samsung C27F390FHU is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.
There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have an integrated card reader which you might want to consider including the DELL U2413 (£275.00) which also has a higher rating.
Not 3D Compatible
The Samsung C27F390FHU is not 3D compatible. Most of the other PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the C27F390FHU are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The C27F390FHU does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the C27F390FHU also do not have a built-in camera.
+4 More reasons against
Only LCD Display Type
The Samsung C27F390FHU has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most new medium monitors.
An LCD display type is actually the worst display type across all comparable spec flatpanel monitors that have been around for a similar time to the C27F390FHU.
The best display type across comparable types of LCD screen is LED.
If the display type of this LCD screen is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Philips 220S4LYCB (£149.68) (LED and cheaper).
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many similar spec PC screens that were launched in the last year.
Only 1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been around for the last year.
Alternative LCD screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might want to consider include the Samsung C24F396FHU (£163.39) which has a better Rating; or the AOC I2275PWQU (£155.80), or the Samsung LS24F356FHU (£148.37) which is cheaper.
PC monitors with a more display resolution that might be worth looking at include the Philips 240S4QYMB (£245.56) (1920 x 1200 and cheaper).
