Good buy for a widescreen monitor


This is my second flat-panel monitor, but my first ever widescreen monitor. I am a graphic designer and it has been extremely helpful when I have photoshop, illustrator and dreamweaver programs open. The color on the monitor is almost the same that...

Amazing color, no flickering, nice wide screen lets you move around your programs with ease

Base was hard to assemble at first

Big Bang for the Buck


This is my first move for an LCD from a CRT. This sleek, simple LCD monitor is made with only one thing in mind, just concentrate on the screen without worrying about anything else. Big Bang for the buck.Highly Recommended. But you should know about...

Simple, Easy to Use, Fantastic Colour Clarity, Excellent Brightness/Contrast

Initial color Caliberation needs a bit of time, Some types of text is about 1% out of colour

Consumer review by:

nice moniter for a person who would be using it for web browsing.


Not for a gamer. on the other side it has a great picture for a analog and has amasing colour. but as for my choice i'm using my Hanns-G JW199D over it.

Reliable Brand, MagicTune and magic bright features

No dvi. and that means it will have only analog input. With no digital this means shadowing can happen and text will be slightly more dificult to read

Money well spent


Over a year old and still no dead pixels. Great images given the resolution limitations, which is to say it's a great monitor for the price. Option to go analog or digital. Simple to use adjustment controls

Not any really. For the price range, you'd be hard pressed to find more monitor for the money

Nice Piece of Hardware


CM 690, Intel E8500, EVGA 9800 GTX+ SC, Corsair 2 x 1GB RAM, Corsair 750W, EVGA 123 750i SLI, Samsung 920 19", Seagate 500 GB

This is a very solid monitor, and it's auto adjust feature comes in handy once in a while

I was hoping for a bit higher resolution out of it, it's max is 1440 x 900, but oh well, Crysis still looks jaw-droppingly amazing on it

Open Box


I purchased this monitor as an open box special here on Newegg and it came with everything that it should have: cable, power cord, driver and manual CD. Thanks Newegg!!!

Very sharp picture, excellent contrast, great color reproduction. Auto feature is great as I didn't even have to tweak the settings to my liking. Plus there are some different presets available as well

None for me, at least not yet

SAMSUNG - 19IN LCD 700:1 1440X900 920NW BLACK 5MS


It''s great for a home PC to work with photos or just basic applications. You need your own speakers.

The price was excellent and the quality is outstanding.

No speakers.
