Samsung SyncMaster 906BW

 

The 906BW is a stylish monitor that delivers decent performance. Gameplay wasn't as smooth as we'd like, however, despite the 2ms response time.

Stylish design; fast 2ms pixel-response rate; good readability with small text

No DVI cable included; slightly disap- pointing gaming performance

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Consumer review by:

Good while it lasted...........

 

The display is very pretty - never distorted, clear and bright. Just wish it had lasted more than three years.

Size, ease of use

Cover over plugs falls off frequently. Died right after warranty period

A great purchase

 

If it wasn't for the fact that I have to put it on my sub-woofer to make it reading height, this would be the perfect monitor. The size is my only gripe, but for the price I paid, I don't care. The refresh rate makes it one of the better gaming...

Text is crisp, the auto-adjust feature is perfect, multiple ports make it great for two different computers, and it's pretty cheap

The stand is pretty short, the LCD screen is hard to view at an angle, and it's not the biggest one out there

Consumer review by:

I'll never buy Samsung again.

 

Low quality. Was useless and had to be trashed after just a year. A waste of resources and a waste of my money. I'll never buy Samsung again.

Not a darned thing

After less than a year, thick horizontal gray lines started flashing across the monitor, scrolling from the bottom to the top. It's going belly up and will have to be trashed. What a waste of resources

Consumer review by:

Excellent Monitor for the $$

 

A good quality monitor for a decent price. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend looking for a good quality flat panel display at a reasonable price.

Good image quality, quick response, no dead pixels, VERY reliable

Not sure I've found any yet, other than that my 19" isn't a 22" ;-)

AMAZING, works like a dream

 

I love this thing, got it on sale from Best Buy, best computer purchase I've made. It gives a choice of both analogue and digital types, as well as easy to use controls with a very sleek look.

Great picture quality, auto adjust features

None that I know of

Great Monitor, Terrible Stand

 

I was shopping for a 19" LCD monitor but I didn't want to spend a lot so I knew I'd have to make concessions somewhere. My budget was roughly $200. This monitor had the best technical specs in my price range (2,000 - 1 contrast ratio, 2ms refresh rate)...

Excellent picture quality for both graphics & text at this price

Stand is WAY too low and completely non-adjustable

Consumer review by:

color, contrast, refresh rate, customization, looks

nada. zip. none

Excellent Monitor

 

I like the crisp text and the wide screen, this is the second 19" monitor I have owned and the first wide screen, This is a easy unit to get up and going and the controls are easy

for some reason it took about 20 minutes for me to get the install driver disk to work
