Samsung SyncMaster 953BW review: Samsung SyncMaster 953BW

 

The 19-inch Samsung SyncMaster 953BW is available online for as low as $170. For that price, the monitor provides VGA and DVI connections and supports HDCP. The monitor delivers good performance; both games and movies have vibrant colors, but movie...

Low price; great games performance.

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

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

Samsung SyncMaster 953BW

 

Another great-looking Samsung LCD, but picture quality isn't quite up to the usual standard.

Awesome Clarity

 

Amazing monitor, super clear, bright and crisp. Games look great (with a decent vid card) and movies are as good as they can be on a screen smaller than 52 inches! No dead pixels. What else can you ask for in a monitor

If there are any, it's the lack of USB ports

Great Monitor

 

As I said, I'm here to buy athird. I think that says it all!!

I have tow of these that I am extremely happy with. I'm ready to buy my third. Just a godd, well-performing monitor for a fair price

Height and swivel adjustment, but I knew that going in. If I really need these, I can buy an aftermarket stand

OK monitor, not great

 

I buy Samsung products for the picture quality vs. price ratio: for the most part you can expect it to be the highest with Samsung. I gave the 2253BW a VERY VERY generous 4 stars. My official rating is a 3 on the picture and I was honestly pushed an...

Very bright and vibrant picture (slight adjustment is almost necessary to tone it down) ; Color reproduction is very good but this brings up a Con as well ; Very classy design (probably the biggest PRO about this!) / shiny piano-black finish...

1 CON relates to one of its PROs: color reproduction is good but it changes drastically througout the screen! Images viewed at the top 1/4 of the screen have 50% more color depth than at the bottom 1/4. A solid colored screen can change from that color...

Outstanding All Purpose Monitor

 

I ordered my 2253BW 22" from Newegg late in the afternoon on a Wednesday and requested the standard "3 - day UPS shipping". It left Newegg in CA that Wednesday night and the UPS guy handed it to me here in CT before noon on Friday. Free shipping that...

I retired my Samsung 940B 4:3 aspect ratio monitor and picked up this monitor for use with my gaming computer. I was primarily interested in utilizing the 16:10 aspect ratio in COD4 and Quake 4 and figured the screen size would be a bonus for other...

The panel has surprisingly even backlight distribution, however, a very picky person may notice a slight reduction in backlight visible at each corner, when viewing a white screen (such as a blank document) from straight on. The area I am talking about...

Great Monitor, Good price

 

Look at other options for monitors... I know you can get a cheaper 22", but this one does have 2ms refresh and 8000:1 contrast. Only 1680x1050 resolution, but does the trick.

Great monitor. Beautiful design with the clear acrylic along the bottom edge of the screen
