Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

Neither flashy nor flexible, the Samsung SyncMaster 930B LCD fulfills basic productivity needs; still, 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.

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...

Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

overall i hate this monitor and i definitely don't recommend it to be used with macs. i've used it at work for a couple of years now and as a graphic designer i'm ashamed this is what i'm working with. hopefully it'll be replaced soon.

you can customize image settings till the cows come home

but you'll never find an accurate setting. running the calibration process it's impossible to neutralize some of the grays samples leaving with some inaccurate colors

I own two of these monitors and I have been using them for gaming since 2005 with no problems. That's almost 3 years. CNET was/is wrong.

Very reliable, Good Colors

a bit on the expensive side

Consumer review by:

Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

I don't usually write opinion, but I've come this far beginning from simply searching the specs of this monitor I've been using for 6 months, because I think the CNET reviewer didn't even use this monitor for an hour playing games or read the specs....

crisp picture, good price, good for gaming, perfect design

unable to adjust height

Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

This is a decent no-fuss monitor that will keep you satisfied. For my needs (Internet, Word, Excel) the monitor is very crisp and sharp. The gaming and movie color saturation is far better than you would think. These days, people buy wide-screen and...

Very crisp text, well-saturated colors for gaming and movies; OSD a plus

Ugly exterior and no extra bells like USB or better stand. Display setting Buttons hard to navigate

Samsung SyncMaster 930B

 

I got this monitor for its ability to render color and detail, not necessarily for how it looks. Then, I got a dell 1907FP. Boy was I disappointed, so much so that I went back and got the next model in the SyncMaster series, the 932B. The 930B does a...

Great color, brilliant rendering. Color easily adjusted through the computer program

Everything the reviewer said regarding the limited ability to adjust the height of the monitor and lack of cool features such as usb connections
