The Samsung SyncMaster 940BF delivers a clear, vivid picture for games and DVDs, but overall we found it average; other monitors offer more adjustability and features and better performance for less.

Clear, vivid picture for games and DVDs; image controls easy to use and understand.

Limited adjustment options; no cable-feed system; expensive, given mediocre features and performance.

More options are becoming available to consumers as LCD Monitors are growing to be a mainstream item. In fact, CRT displays will soon fade out and become a thing of the past. However, until that happens people should put some considerable thought into...

DVI and analog inputs; small footprint; good for gamers

Flimsy construction; mediocre features; expensive

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,...

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...

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.

This monitor has been purchased to have 2 monitors on one computer. It is ideal for that as plastic thickness is allowing for two of them to get side by side very close. Also it was a great deal
