Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

It's not flashy or flexible, but the Samsung SyncMaster 930B will fit your basic productivity needs, though other, better-performing monitors are available for the same price.

Analog and digital inputs; MagicTune software that helps you adjust your screen to your current task; removable plastic piece that hides the inputs and the cables; fairly intuitive onscreen-menu buttons.

Nonadjustable height; no swivel or pivot; brightness-uniformity problems; hard-to-read labels for OSM buttons.

Neither flashy nor flexible, the Samsung SyncMaster 930B LCD fulfills basic productivity needs; still, better-performing monitors are available for the same price.

Samsung SyncMaster 930BF LCD

 

It's easy to remember when about a year ago a 16ms LCD monitor was like gold. That was about the lowest refresh rate one could get and everyone was going for them. At that time the excuse most gamers were using for not using LCD's for gaming was partly...

Large screen size ; 4ms response time ; Both DVI and analog inputs with cables ; Stylish design with gray trim ; Cables well hidden at the back with a removable cover ; MagicColour enhancement

I'd like to see a little higher contrast ratio ; Height should be adjustable

Overall this is one impressive LCD display from Samsung! It's ultra stylish looks combined with high-end specs like the 4ms response time make it a must have monitor for hardcore gamers and regular home users alike. It may be slightly higher priced...

Samsung - SM930BF

 

The Samsung SM930BF is a 19-inch TFT display with a native resolution of 1,280 x 1,024 pixels, which puts it squarely in the mainstream if you're sick and tired of your bulky old CRT and want ...

It's tricky to know what Samsung thinks it's offering the end user with the SM930BF. It's a reasonable display housed in a boring case with the bare minimum of tilt adjustment, yet it is expensive and doesn't even include a DVI cable. This is one to...

Bought it used and Love it! Beautifully Bright Colors!

 

This is one SPECTACULAR monitor USED OR NEW!!

Lightweight and uses minimal space.

Only con is the contrast ratio of 700:1 I'd have preferred a 2000:1.

Crisp and Clear

 

Nice price on a sharp, bright monitor that's definitely on par with other monitors in the price category--DVI is the way to go! 0 dead pixels and fast delivery from NewEgg

Bright, crisp and clear monitor at an excellent price; body is simple and compact and base is simple and sturdy; like the plastic cable connector cover on the back which comes off easily but won't fall off on its own; stays cool; looks awesome with DVI...

Base, like all others in this price class doesn't do anything except tilting up/down; factory brightness setting was at 100% and much too bright--not a problem when turned down to 50 or 60%; think I would place the ON/OFF switch somewhere else other...

wish i'd ordered one

 

i've had this monitor for quite a while now, and i can't really find much to gripe about. it does have a bit of ghosting, but you have to really look for it to notice it. i play a lot of fps games, and once you get used to it, it doesn't really bother...

great colors, clear picture, good dvd playback

just enough ghosting to be annoying, but i'm extremely picky about these things. some fonts get kinda whacky. not the best for photo editing/graphic designing

19" Samsung

 

Nothing but awesome display. Love it

The menu buttons are hard to see underneath the display. Bad location for this. Samsung should highlight the words in white on a Black panel

Still Waiting

 

Its too bad NewEgg has a hands off approach to technical support on these products. All support is dealt with thru the manufacturer. Poor rating was because orig product broke in 3 weeks and the replacment was DOA.

When the monitor worked it looked great, and was easy to set the colors up. Samsung customer support line never has a backup, ive called 6 times, i should know

One day it shut off on me and when it came back on the display was off to the right, couldnt fix it. Samsung sends me a new one (11 days later) and it doesnt work with DVI at all. Lets hope the next one they send me actually works
