Samsung SyncMaster 915N


Aside from its cool, sleek profile and more efficient use of energy, an LCD has another distinct advantage over a CRT. Its flat face reflects less glare, and the fact that it's flicker-free means less eyestrain and eye fatigue, a boon to those who have...

Fast 4-ms pixel-response rating. Good color quality. Thin bezel design

Analog input only. Poor viewing-angle performance. Menu buttons are difficult to read. Tilt-only stand

The SyncMaster 915N touts the fastest pixel-response time we've seen on an LCD monitor. But this 19-inch entry comes up a bit short on other features and suffers from a few image-quality flaws.

Syncmaster 915N


The SyncMaster 915n appears to be something of a departure from Samsung's usual feature-packed monitors. This model, stripped down to the basics, delivers decent screen quality and one of the lowest prices ($399 at testing time) we've seen on a 19-inch...

Screen adjustment software

Little in the way of features

Though the SyncMaster 915n won't win any design awards, our review unit felt durable. The 56-page manual is complete and neatly organized--a blessing because the controls were a bit difficult to understand without it. Cryptic, hard-to-see symbols...

Samsung 915N 19" LCD Monitor


As I sit here writing code for my directx keyboard handler, I keep reminding myself that I'm not supposed to like LCD monitors. All of my computing existence I have have preferred traditional CRT technology over LCD for various and assorted reasons. So...

Software doesn't work under XP 64 ; Noticeable brightness change in the corners ; No DVI interface, thin VGA cable

The Samsung 915N is a great all around midrange LCD. While it does not have as many features as some of the higher end models (DVI, swivel), it does incorporate many good qualities for a very decent price. I found that the adjustments were excellent,...

Samsung SyncMaster 915N


What advantages do CRT monitors still hold over LCD panels? LCD panels are getting cheaper all the time, and their performance is on par with CRT. The Samsung SyncMaster 915N fits the first category, and is 19" to boot. But how does it perform?

19 inches of screenly goodness, No ghosting or motion blur, Low price, MagicTune and MagicBright features allow easy adjustability

Base not very adjustable, No DVI

Once again Samsung has impressed me. The SyncMaster 915N ups the bar over the previous 710N we reviewed, providing a package with better performance numbers, a larger screen, and still at a very cheap price point. You don't get a few features found on...

Samsung 915N LCD Monitor


We've looked at some awesome LCD monitors from Samsung in the past. Today they've sent us their 915N LCD monitor which has a massive 19 inch screen size, and to top that off, the fastest response time currently on the market, 8ms!

8ms Response Time ; 700:1 Contrast Ratio ; Stylish Design ; Built in power supply ; Large 19" screen size

DVI Input would be nice to have

Overall I was amazed with the Samsung 915N 19" LCD. With it's ultra fast 8ms response time even hardcore gamers can now make the move to LCD. An added bonus is the extra screen area that a 19 inch offers! It's performance makes it by far one of, if...

Samsung SyncMaster 915N


The buttons are small but u can used to them quickly. This is my first LCD and I am pleased. I got mine for about 300 and it seems to be just fine for the things I use it for. I have a Nikon D70 and i view my sports pictures on this screen and it...

Samsung SyncMaster 915N


I would purchase this monitor again in a flash. With the rebate (which I haven't gotten yet!) I don't think you will find a better monitor for the price. I paid (after rebate) $298 w/shipping.

Super Large Screen. I was previously using a 17" Dell CRT..HUGE Difference. My eyes Don't burn anymore,,no more headaches! Everything "fits" now. I like the " Tilt" feature..NICE

A little difficult getting the correct brightness..took me two days of playing around with it. The buttons are impossible to see..and no instructions if they lock(Hold LEFT button in 6 seconds)

Product Specifications

Samsung, the world's leading manufacturer of computer monitors, continues to improve upon its groundbreaking LCD monitor technology with the introduction of the sleek new SyncMaster 915n display. The SyncMaster 915n offers an industry-leading 8ms response time, one of the fastest in the industry today, making the monitor ideal for computer gaming and multimedia-driven applications as well as anyone who uses motion video or streaming video. The SyncMaster 915n incorporates Samsung's MagicSpeed technology, which offers a drastically improved response time compared to traditional LCD monitors. Samsung was the first to launch an LCD display with a 12ms response time and is now raising the technology bar even higher with the 915n's 8ms response time. By refining the product development process, Samsung has been able to achieve one of the fastest response times on the market today. A faster response time ensures better performance of motion video, and produces smoother edges, clearer images and a more natural image response. Response time is a critical factor that consumers should consider when purchasing an LCD monitor. When viewing motion video on displays with slower response times, users may see images that appear to "ghost" or look generally out of focus. Samsung's MagicSpeed offers the ideal solution for viewing motion video on an LCD and offers the best image quality and response time for an optimized viewing experience.
