Samsung 933HD review


The 933HD is the only 19in TV here, which goes some way to making up for its low resolution of 1,360x768.

TV fits my needs. Great price.


I use as a TV in the kitchen. Works great so far. I don't have any problems with sound quality. Plays loud and clear. Do notice non HD channels could be clearer but HD broadcasts are fantastic so I know its not the TV but difference in cable signal....

Very Good product


I bought this product to use as a computer monitor. I had problems at first with the letters being fuzzy but with my new N Vidia graphics card the picture is as clear as can be. Very good TV-monitor for the price.

Very Satisfied


Bought it to replace a 13'' tube tv in the kitchen and it is nice that I can use it for a PC monitor. It saved me a lot of counter space, it has a nice clean apppearance, and has a good HDTV picture. I read lots of reviews complaining about sound and...

Returning it


I bought this because of the ability to also use this as a tv monitor in my craft room. I am returning it because the text when using as a pc monitor is fuzzy, with a lot of letters having a ghost image. The tv quality was so-so - the color was way too...

Sound not good.


This unit might be fine as a PC monitor, but as a stand-alone TV, forget it. The sound produced by the tiny, rear-facing speakers is lousy, underpowered and tinny. I bought this unit new and will be requesting a return authorization as soon as I finish...

Fantastic Monitor


If you're looking for a great tv/monitor combo - this is it.

A fantastic monitor at a fantastic price. I don't have cable, but the picture is fantastic even using an antenna. (As a side note, it is also nice to plug an antenna straight into the tv rather than through a converter box!) The picture is also...

I agree with some of the previous reviews - the sound does seem to come out of the back of the tv, which doesn't provide great sound. It isn't bad, just not great. Hooking up a pair of computer speakers made all the difference in the world to me, and...

Awesome TV/monitor combo


I got this TV/monitor to use with my gaming consoles, new and old alike, to be placed next to my bed. The screen size is just right for this, and the composite and HDMI inputs make this a perfect solution! The resolution may not be 1080p, but most PS3...

The screen has a matte finish! The "high glossy black" in the product description must be referring to the bezel around the screen. I do not like glossy screens, so this was a very pleasant surprise for me ; The picture is beautiful, as you would...

The buttons on the side of the unit are difficult to read, but it comes with a remote anyway ; Most reviews on here state the speakers aren't very good, but I was a bit surprised by the quality. I'm sure they won't sound good when the volume is maxed,...

More than I hoped for in a small TV


This HDTV is an excellent value. I compared several other HDTVs in this price and size range. This one is a great deal.
