Samsung SyncMaster 953BW

 

The 19-inch Samsung SyncMaster 953BW performs well and has a low price; however, its competitors one-up it on both counts.

Low price; great games performance.

Severe lack of ergonomic options; bad lower viewing angle; shallow black level.

Consumer review by:

Fantastic display for the money

 

This is my 4th Samsung LCD monitor. For price, features AND reliability you can't beat Samsung.

Colors are vibrant, blacks are nice and deep no dead pixels at all. Game play is great as is watching movies (no blurring at all)

None to this point

Consumer review by:

The Best $239 I've ever spent !

 

I had read reviews on this product at a couple of sites. This site being one of them. I bought it from a very well trusted online site. It offered a $20 rebate from Samsung. I did receive the rebate. But, it took Samsung 8 weeks to process the rebate...

Picture quality, 2ms (gray to gray), ease of set up & use, and price for a flat panel monitor, easy to keep clean, and a good solid weight for a flat panel LCD monitor

No height adjustment, buttons are hard to reach due to design

Consumer review by:

Samsung SyncMaster 953BW

 

Overall an excellent display with just a couple of minor annoyances. Extremely happy with the quality of the picture. Has a range of adjustments, both manual and automatic so you can set to how you think looks bets. Only 2 negs and they are minor....

Bright sharp display with excellent contrast

Tilt mechanism very stiff, flashing power light annoying

Although the blacklight is not so good, but the brand name sansung may give am asuurance that this product last longgertime to use

Less ergonomics

Consumer review by:

Samsung SyncMaster 953BW

 

I tried for a month and more to make this monitor work with my late 2008 MacBook. First, no DVI cable came with the monitor. Then Apple's mini-DVI converter wouldn't work with the 2008 MacBook -- it has a DVI miniport, which is a different connection....

Sleek design

Cannot adjust tilt or height

Consumer review by:

Big bright display at a good price

 

Knocking it a half star for the significant backlight bleeding, but otherwise a very sharp, crisp, bright display that was certainly worth the price. 1680x1050 is perfect at this size and 1920x1200 would've been hard to read.

Very bright, crisp, clear, monitor with a good response time. Looks stylish and has a variety of digital connection options

Backlight bleeding is visible in a dark screen, which is unfortunate for movies or dark video games. Monitor does require some color calibration

Product Specifications
