Samsung SyncMaster 943BX LCD Monitor


The Samsung SyncMaster will please a variety of users with its high performance and numerous features. But its 4:3 aspect ratio is a bit of a throwback.

Uncompromising color; excellent gray-scale range; portrait- or landscape-mode orientations; single-button video-source selection; thin bezel aids dual-monitor setups

Traditional 4:3 shape feels dated; a bit more expensive than some 19-inch monitors

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Excellent. No problems

Great FP - Terrible Warranty Service


Bought dozens of these flat panels. After 7 months or so, one broke (no longer powers up). Went thru Samsungs confusing rma process, gave them a credit card to cover advance replacement - waited 10 days - still no replacement - went to their rma...

Nice monitor - prefer normal ratio to widescreen format

Warranty appears to be useless

Great Picture


Worth the extra money over the budget monitors.

Sharp, bright picture, no dead pixels. Solid stand that tilts, swivels, and is height adjustable

Touch controls are difficult to use. Driver is not compatible with Samsung's MagicTune picture optimization software, though it is compatible with Natural Color Pro which is also a good picture enhancing utility

Great product


I'll never buy anything but Samsung.

Beautiful color, crisp picture ; No dead pixels ; Truly a wonderful piece of equipment

Support Sucks III...The Saga Continues


I was able to get a ticket number for my 2nd failed monitor but, if the lack of response for the new ticket is similar to the response that I have received on the 1st ticket, I may not ever see either the first or the second replacement monitor.

There is nothing positive about this situation.... I have been notified that the Executive Customer Relations Department, a group of individuals that cannot be reached by mere mortals (Samsung will not give out the number for the department), is in...

According to the Tech Support supervisor, the ECR department is now on the job.... According to him, a replacement monitor has been shipped, even though the online "my status" report shows no replacement unit ship date and no UPS tracking number

Support Sucks II...The Saga Continues


Again today I called Samsung.... they connected me to the Tech Support Group... The Tech Support group stated that they had no control over my problem. They stated that there is a small group of people in New Jersey that handles the warranty tickets so...

I am so exasperated that I can't think of one

See my previous post.... I apologize to Newegg and the readers for airing my complaints about the bad support that I have received from Samsung but their response to my plight leaves me no other alternative.... Hopefully someone in Samsung management...

Support Sucks!!!


Samsung technical support has failed me big time in this instance. It is totally unreasonable for them to not respond to a failed monitor under warranty.... for 22 days.... a period of time that is growing as I compose this review..... I will conclude...

I have purchased several 940 series Samsung monitors. The performance, when they work, is excellent

I recently had a monitor failure. Samsung has a monitor swap program that swaps a reconditioned monitor for the failed monitor. The swap ticket number, 4002808708, was issued on November 11, 2008. Despite repeated calls to Samsung, I cannot get a...

They mean Bright black finish. had to modify the fellows screen protecter to allow for buton use but would have to do that for any monitor were buttons are on front not botom

Samsung I've only bought a few but have never had any problems with dead pixels or quality got what I expected as far as screen quality goes

none really

SAMSUNG 943BX Black 19" 5ms LCD Monitor with Height & Pivot adjustment 300 cd/m2 DC 8000:1(1000:1)


It's totally worth the money if you need a 4:3 display at 19"!

Nice display, blacks are black, whites are white, color is, well, color. Easy to swivel in place for showing people things as needed, easy to adjust size

Touch sensitive buttons don't have a backlight making them hard to use in the dark (which is how I keep my office, thankfully my optical mouse doubles as a torch, heh!), doesn't seem to have an auto-off on signal loss (my older Samsung didn't either,...
