Amazing Monitor


Looking for a high-res, mid-$range, mid-size range monitor? This should be one of your top picks.

Great clarity, bright, works amazingly with PS3. Extremely fast response times

None that I have found, other than it not having an HDMI input for console gaming

Consumer review by:

Worth every penny


Purchased this monitor about 7 months ago. No dead pixels, looks and works great. Fast response time for movies and games. Looked at wide screen monitors and found that although they're wider, they also have a smaller height, so for regular web...

One of the last non-wide screen LCD monitors you'll be able to buy ; Looks and works great ; Good bargain for the price

Nice Monitor


Worth the money, I only bought it because it was the cheapest while still giving's Samsung, you know it's good.

Nice size, very reasonable price with the sale and 10 dollar instant coupon. Good picture, does what a monitor is supposed to

Picks up dust and fingerprints like a mother, but that's nothing major

Consumer review by:

Absolutely lovely


The appearance and color itself is beautiful

nothing so far

Nice For The Price!


Purchased two of these because of the price, size and HDMI connection. I use them on a small desk at home with my ASUS Netbook to enable me to work from home for my Web Design business.

Nice, inexpensive monitors which are excellent for a small space. Includes an HDMI connection which is very unusual for less expensive monitors and was one of the reasons I purchased two of these

Resolution is limited to 1360x768, but that is to be expected with a smaller monitor

Bye bye CRT


Upgrading from a 21" CRT for the power savings, the 943 is supposed to use only 20 watts while active, less than a watt in sleep, the average for LCD monitors seem to be around 35-45 watts. There are lower power monitors, but they cost twice as much,...

Low power consumption ; Cheap ; Easy set up ; Bright

The buttons are a pain, I don't plan on adjusting the settings often though, so no big deal ; 1360 x 768, I'm used to 1280x1024 at least ; Not as crisp as my old CRT, I knew this before I bought it though

Lines in my screen


What a great monitor until the lines started happening.

Great looking monitor, best I've ever owned. Anything you do on your pc comes to life with this absolutely beautiful monitor

I have 3 red/blue lines going from top to bottom on the right hand side of my monitor. thi started happenning about 2-3 weeks ago, and my heart sank. I am absolutely crushed, and know that I have to live with this, as I do not have 2 months to return...

A nice crisp monitor


other then them say they were including a microphone male/male and not including one which I'm not sure I'll ever need let alone use its pretty good, now all i need is a wide screen wallpaper. Also for me Win XP SP3 there was no need to install the...

Very nice monitor, free shipping, crisp clean lines, looks nice with DVI, no set cable which makes moving it easy

the manual said there was supposed to include a male-to-male audio cable but i can't see an input and no cable was shipped i assume it was just general instructions for a series, also i had to tweak the gamma and brightness from default

Beautiful monitor!



Beautiful monitor! Easy to assemble and set up! No dead pixels

Driver software on CD does not work with Windows Vista 64-bit OSes! You have to register the monitor before you can locate the proper driver software for Vista 64-bit OSes. However, once you find it, and install the driver for your particular...
