Samsung SyncMaster 943BW


Samsung's latest LCD monitor designed for office environments.

Minimalist design; non-glossy screen; wall-mountable; pivots, rotates and tilts; excellent colour

No HDMI; fast images tend to blur; vertical viewing angles aren't great

Samsung's latest SyncMaster is an ideal monitor for an office environment. The Samsung SyncMaster 943BW combines a minimalist yet classy design with excellent image quality for a reasonable price.

Great Monitor


I'm not sure why someone would give 1 egg to a product regarding the rebate. That doesn't make any sense, this is a 5 egg product.

The contrast, colors and resolution are great on this monitor

I bought this for doing photoshop. It swivels so I can get a nearly a full screen on a vertical 35mm photo. However it seems to have not been designed with that in mind. When viewing in the vertical position and looking straight on the picture seems to...

Nicely bright, good contrast, rotates. Adjustable brightness, and pretty much adjustable everything else

Angle of view not the best for graphic arts, swivels past 0 and 90 degrees so it's easy to get it a little crooked. Others have noted that it's too bright for text work, but that can be easily adjusted with the on-screen controls

My internship over the summer had these monitors on their computers, so I mainly used these in portrait mode for computer programming, and on that end, these were fantastic, and I'm strongly considering buying one for myself. The image is very bright...

I miss buttons...the power/menu/etc controls work by putting your finger on the respective spot. Doesn't detract from the looks, but I always seem to press the wrong one or press one when I don't mean to if I'm pointing to stuff

Great Picture


Excellent contrast resulting in superb color for an LCD. Rivals the picture of my hight end sony crt ; I love the smooth buttons. I built this one into my kitchen wall and the smooth buttons don't get dirt stuck in them while I'm cooking and turning it...

Had to RMA the first time but New Egg was quick to get the new one back to me

Horrible service


A reasonable monitor

After a week, monitor goes into sleep mode (turn black) seconds after turned on. It stays in sleep mode while the PC is on ; Contacted Samsung online service. The process of requesting a replacement (swap) was simple and quick. However, it's been more...

Excellent LCD


I've bought 2 of these for client builds and clients were very happy with them. They're very sleek, sharp, and the color quality is amazing. Nothing short of what one would expect from a Samsung LCD

Flushed buttons (or lack of) are difficult to see when the screen is on, especially in low light conditions. This isn't too bad though since you rarely have to adjust the screen's settings

Better then my TV


Despite the touch controls not being that visible, I'm not really changing any settings all the time, since everything looks great from out of the box. This is still a 5 star/golden egg product.

After purchasing this monitor, I am officially a Samsung loyalist. Not only are the colors, the widescreen, the TOUCH control buttons, and the mount awesome, but this thing can ROTATE! All my games and movies look awesome, Crysis is even more beautiful...

Even though I love the touch controls, they are a bit hard to see in dark areas, but turning on the lights are good enough to for me to see them up close
