Expert review by : Bill O'Brien (

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

Great refurbished monitor


I ordered this as a second monitor to use in my home with my work laptop and the clarity and colors are just amazing. At our office most of our monitors are mad by Samsung with a few HP or Dell monitors thrown in, so I figured I would order one of the...

Great price, great product


This product is great for the price, I've only had it hooked up for about a week, but so far so good. It's simple, plug and play, and the picture quality is good. For $70 I couldn't have asked for more.

My Savior


I had been looking for a backup monitor for my secondary XP computer for a long time. I needed a smaller size and a decent used model. I scoured until I found this jewel. The rotational base is the most awesome feature. I can turn it towards the crowd...

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
