good all around monitor.


I was able to pick up this monitor for $319 after rebate. For that price I feel I made a good choice. For viewing text it is exceptional in how clear it is. For viewing pictures and video I feel that the colors look a little bright and unnatural, even...

good price, attractive design, clear text

a little too bright for my taste

Samsung SyncMaster 940B - LCD display - TFT - 19"


This monitor is great. The native resolution is huge and you get crystal clear text and pictures on it. The gaming is amazing with absolutely no ghosting. I've played cod2, bf2, hl2, all on this monitor and have had literally zero problems.

No problem playing games or movies. Also does perfect for photo viewing and editing at home

Does not come with a DVI cord

A Gamers Dream!


The response time sold me on this one. Plus the fact that it's a Samsung which seems to make good products. I'm a gamer. I like to play MOHAA and CODUO which are first person shooters. I have experienced no ghosting effects that you can get with higher...

Great response time. No Ghosting Effects. Really stunning picture

none that I have come across yet

Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed this monitor. It has been great. While at first I was really irked to have a problem develop with the monitor, I want to emphasize how awesome Sumsung support was. I had an RMA resolution in about 5 minutes. Sumsungs...

Great Picture ; Low Latency ; No Problem Playing games - Oblivion ; Excellent Customer Support ; Both DVI and VGA connectors ; No horrible built-in speakers

Even with adjustment, monitor is just a little bright, but not horrible ; Monitor did develop a problem ; Not a lot of tilt control

Outstanding Quality


Movies and games (Quake 4, Call of Duty 1 and 2, Medal of Honor, Unreal Tournament 2k4, Nascar Racing) all look stunning. No ghosting or artifacts.

No dead or stuck pixels. Extremely vivid colors and outstanding clarity at 1280x1024 resolution. Easy on the eyes for text or graphic work. Easy installation of analog and digital drivers for XP. Auto-adjust sizes things up perfectly at first boot....

Supplied with only an analog cable. No DVI cable supplied with the monitor. Sup with that Samsung

Amazing LCD!!


Lighting fast delivery. I ordered on wednesday, standard ground shipping, recieved on thurs afternoon!! Great way to start the weekend! Thanks Newegg!!!

What can I say other than this monitor is excellent!! No dead pixels, no ghosting. This is my first LCD from my 4yr old 19" CRT. I was a little hesitant, but I was blown away with the quality of this monitor

No cons. The brightness is set at 100% so you will want to adjust that, and probably want to tweak it up a bit too

Very Bright, and it's like the blues get emphazied *compared* to my older monitor, but it's actually just brighter.

Very bright. Sharp text (the most important single question is shart text for me). I very much like the Samsung quick (toggling buttom) way of selecting preset custom screen levels (brightness/contrast). It's very effortless to reset for different...

I have to keep the brightness level under 20 (out of 100)

Great Monitor, but only tilts


Clear picture, Great color so far (have not calibrated for print/video production yet), no dead pixels. Colors do shift a little bit when viewing from different angles - but I believe that all LCD monitors do this a bit in the $xxx price range

Color shade does shift a little bit when viewing from different angles - but I believe that all LCD monitors do this a bit in the $xxx price range ; This model does not come with a stand for left to right swivel, adjustable stand height, or portrait...
