    Samsung, copy Apple exaclty. You don't know how to make a product on your own that looks good. And 27" 1920x1080 TN sucks. No wonder it isn't coming to the USA. Koreans will buy Korean made garbage. American's will hate on Apple all day though. Reply

    Neither are Samsung (computers) made in SK. Reply

    Yes... of course, totally right...

    Not.

    Apple are not the only company to ever make an all-in-one, it's hardly an original or revolutionary idea. The iMac wasn't even the first, all in one computers go right back to the early days.

    And they're probably all made in China, the guy who designs iMacs is a Brit (Jonathon Ive) and most the supply chain and retail is probably run by all nationalities - few products can really be said to be "home grown" anymore.

    That looks nothing like the iMac. Get real. Just because it is an all-in-one does not mean it's stolen from apple. Seriously the apple iMac is nothing more than a thick screen.

    The Samsung one looks elegant and almost artistic. More and more companies are jumping on the idea of putting more design and art into the look of PCs now that thinner has become cheaper. Apple has always been in a market by themselves. Now that they use all the same x86 stuff they really can't do much more than tout design. Competition is a bitch I guess.

    It looks nothing like any Mac made.

    They forgot to add the left-hand leg for the monitor support! Also, $2000 is expensive. I'd want both monitor legs for that. Reply

    It's sad to see a good company make really bad crap! Reply

    There is almost nothing Apple about it, 3D glasses support, media remote control, standalone webcam, and a flat base. There is little relation or resemblance or "copy" of this and an Apple.

    I'd call this a personal 3D media center, and an ugly one at that too, but it is in no way a iMac rip off.

    That monitor stand is horrible! Yes, I know it has PC board/parts/etc, but its still too big. Apple and Sony manage to do everything behind the screen which is more space efficient. Reply

    My first thought was how nice and bulky it was, as in, it's a good thing, so the screen won't fall over. Reply

    ...this monitor will have backlight bleeding at the bottom right hand side of the TFT panel. The design is absolutely horrible. Its completely impractical and inflexible. Its only about aesthetics and nothing else. Making the panel as thin as possible only introduces further risk that the TFT panel will suffer from mishandling during the assembly process.

    Apple goes for a similar aesthetic-focused approach but there is some sense in what they do. The monitors are constructed well, are thick/structurally rigid enough to prevent flexing of the panel, and the ergonomically troubled stand can be removed for VESA mounting.

    It would be cheaper to buy a notebook with the same capabilities, and then buy a 27" monitor, and mount the notebook on the back of the monitor. It would only take a couple hours in the shop to make a VESA compatible notebook mounting caddy. Hmm, business venture anyone? If there is a market for AIO then there is a market for this too. Reply

    Samsung,well, do copy Apple but here the factor is that it's giving a shit(except for it design) for a huge price of $2K. Just even look at its hardware 2nd gen i7 processor man 4th gen is out now and its gpu...6730m with 1gig of ddr3 memory...LOLZ intel hd 4600 is better than it. 1 tb hdd that's ok but there's no ssd.a 3d monitor and blu-ray can suck how much part of 2 grand bucks.... overall this product is shit.....better invest money elsewhere and get a high-end gaming pc of intel 3930k and gtx 690...game hard Reply
