Samsung SyncMaster 940BF Review

 

Compared to other displays in the 19" LCD category, the 940BF is not the best performer for your money.

The Samsung SyncMaster 940BF is just too expensive to be a good monitor. Its features are average and nothing stands out above the rest of 19″ monitors in its class. The design is also very cheap and moving the actual monitor proves to be a real pain....

Samsung SyncMaster 940BF monitor

 

The SyncMaster 940BF is a very good, all-around display. Despite its limited viewing angle and inflexible ergonomic design, its MagicTune software lets you split the screen into specific zones and tweak the settings based on content.

Very good text and color; MagicZone software lets you adjust settings on different parts of the screen

Limited viewing angle; limited ergonomic adjustments

Setting up the display was quick and easy. It has one analog and one digital input and, once connected, it automatically displayed its native 1280-by-1024 pixel resolution. Its single hinge design allows you to tilt the screen forward and back a bit,...

Samsung 940BF 19 Inch LCD Display

 

XYZ computing takes a look at the Samsung 940BF. With very little exciting happening in the world of monitors, this promises to be a fairly average computer monitor.

The performance is fine with a few nitpicks about how well it handles gray colors and some color issues towards the edge of the screen. But overall, its a good monitor, and it despite its run of the mill looks should be okay for those not looking for...

Samsung 940BF LCD Display Review

 

The LCD computer monitor market has not been very exciting lately. This may be due to a number of factors, for example, that the LCD has reached a maturation point or that display manufacturers have shifted their focus to flat panel televisions....

Samsung - SyncMaster 940BF

 

The current vogue for LCD flat panel monitors is ever-decreasing circles of response times. In layman's terms, an LCD's response time is a measurement in milliseconds of the time it takes to update the screen, the ...

The SyncMaster 940BF is certainly on the pricey side, and it has a somewhat basic feature set considering this premium. What you're really paying for is the display quality, which is crisp and clean under Windows and top-notch with games and multimedia.

Decent monitor

 

It's a decent monitor - great deal for a 19" monitor at the time. It's bright and clear

It's definitely lighter on the bottom. For normal usage it probably doesn't matter - I didn't even notice it at first. But I do web design work and after a while I noticed colors towards the bottom were lighter. Put up a solid black wallpaper and you...

Quality stand.

It's a TN panel.

Excellent monitor

 

Replaced 17" monitor of the same brand, bought 2 years ago.

Vibrant colors, no ghosting, no dead pixels, DVI cable included. Optimal letter size for the eyes at the native resolution. No setup - just plug it in. Compact and elegant stand - I much rather prefer that, than the "coat hangers" of other models....
