Great Monitor


This monitor plus a 21" Sony with a 8800GT card run EVERYTHING flawlessly. I can watch TV on one and surf the web on the other, or watch youtube videos as well. Playing games at the max resolution with no lag.

Resolution, color detail, gaming response, and overall general usage is top notch. This monitor has handled everything I have thrown at it and then some. I watch cable TV, dvd's, and power surf the web. Zero issues great buy wish I had 2 of them. I...

The install of the base was pretty scary. You have to push really firm to get it seated. You cannot play some games that require resolution change (Civilization)

This was a great monitor. No dead pixels or any other flaws other then the ones I stated in the cons. 1920x1200 was a great resolution for gaming until the blurry center starting showing more and more. Now it's just annoying because it's so...

Advertised as 20000:1 Dynamic Contrast when it's actually 50000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio ; Very Vivid. Bright

Only 3 months of ownership and it has lost it's sharpness right down the entire middle of the screen. I can clearly see fonts, text, and any graphics blurred in them, up and down the middle of the screen. Move it to the edges and things become crisper...

Beware the hum


The monitor is OK. There is no height adjustment in the stand, but on my desk this is not a problem. What was a major disappointment for me is the humming noise it makes when you lower the brightness. Initially I thought it was a defect in this...

1900x1200 resolution ; looks nice

Limited stand ; Humming noise when brightness less than 100

Best 24 for the Price


Forget the lesser-than brands. It pays to invest in a little quality up front. Buy this - you will not regret it.

Elegant finish - radiates quality. Brilliant picture. Flexible color. brightness, and contrast adjustments. Legendary Samsung reputation

SAMSUNG 933BW High Glossy Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 15000:1(1000:1)


Before I got this, I was worried that others said the directions for the base were unclear. They are somewhat vague, but just make sure you pay attention to where the triangle is in the diagram, and you'll have no problem getting it in without too much...

Bright, shiny, and beautiful

None really

Consumer review (



For those interested I am running this monitor along with a 19" NEC running at 1900 x 1200 and 1280 x 1024 respectively. My card is an ATI HD 3870 dual DVI 512 MB. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 with their version of the ATI driver and Catalyst control panel. I...

Awesome color and brightness right out of the box. No dead pixels. At the recommended resolution (1900 x 1200) text shows up beautiful. So much more screen real estate than the 1280 x 1024 that I'm used to ; It's a Samsung ; Really quick refresh rate ;...

No HDMI input, but I knew that going in. Don't really need that anyway. DVI is capable of more than 1080i/p (res) so this doesn't really matter to me. Some of you may care about this so please note ; Nothing else that I can think of. I've only had it...

Great Quality, Great Price


If you don't think you need the full 1200 pixels vertical resolution you can get a similar Samsung 1920x1080 for over $100 cheaper.

I got the monitor today (Monday) after ordering it Friday morning. I just powered it up and it works perfectly. I have a high-end Dell monitor at work that is same size and same resolution but cost quite a bit more than this Samsung so I was skeptical,...

The monitor doesn't raise and lower or rotate, however it tilts forward and backward. The control buttons on the side are hard to read but I don't expect to use them very often

Excellent Monitor


This monitor is a good balance between price and performance from a high quality name. It is very responsive for gaming, with 1920 x 1200 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The picture looks great, and the blacks are very rich
