Samsung SyncMaster 940BW Widescreen LCD Monitor

Inexpensive price ; Widescreen ; Dual interfaces (DVI/Analog) ; Built-in power supply ; Great performance

Low contrast ratio

All in all, the Samsung SyncMaster 940BW has proved to be a very worthy widescreen LCD for those without a massive budget. For approximately $270 Canadian you can't go wrong with this display if you're looking for an entry or office level widescreen...

Fab Colors. Sharp. Lightweight. Versatile. Fast. Luv It!

 

Overall by far the best monitor I ever had in my life. Just wish I could keep it and use it but it's redundant with the laptop sitting right in front. So some yardsaler is about to get lucky tomorrow.

Fast. Sharp. Great Colors. Performs. No lag

Don't need it now that I use laptop all the time. waaahhh

This monitor ROCKS

 

After much research on cnet.com for a new monitor I found the Samsung 940BW. Rated highly by the editors and I can only agree. It games nicely, especially since I paired with the Radeon 9250 card. DVI hook up and the cord even came with the monitor....

Reasonably priced, excellent performance

A Brilliant Product

 

Excellent monitor. It really looks great and I love how Samsung allows you to essentially hide the wires in the back. Although they are hard to reach during first install it is worth it. Also, picture shows up excellent. A great buy!

great picture, perfect size for me, sleek design

stand not very flexible i guess

Great Screen at a Great Price

 

I use my screen as a work horse. I often use it as my second screen when I am working inside two programs or watch movies on it while I am working on my laptop. Screens are simple; they are either great or bad. This one is excellent.

Great Detail, Quick Refresh Rate, the screen looks amazing

There are no Cons to this item
