Samsung SyncMaster 943BW

 

Samsung's latest LCD monitor designed for office environments.

Minimalist design; non-glossy screen; wall-mountable; pivots, rotates and tilts; excellent colour

No HDMI; fast images tend to blur; vertical viewing angles aren't great

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 quality...it'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

perfect for laptop external monitor

 

I bought this as a larger, brighter display for my laptop (Toshiba U205-S5022 ... 2 1/2 years young ... XP Professional - upgraded to 2GB RAM - stellar investment BTW!). This fit the bill almost perfectly (see 'mini' cons listed above). My other...

bright, clear image; high contrast ratio ; its close match (1360x768) to my 12.1" laptop screen resolution (1280x800) makes it an excellent choice for an external monitor ; VGA and DVI-D ; intuitive controls & menu; good control/calibration software ;...

standard stand is tilt only; will need something to put it on or a swing arm/wall mount to raise it above the level of your open laptop (unless you have a docking station a la Dell Latitude, of course) ; a perfect match to native laptop resolution...

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
