User-friendly from the start The SyncMaster 955DF gets off to a very encouraging start. The included user manual is packed with essential information, including a setup guide, a clear depiction and description of the onscreen display controls,...

Low price; optional USB hub available; excellent display controls.

Middling display quality; low refresh rate at highest resolution.

This solid, reasonably priced, 19-inch flat-screen monitor offers satisfactory display quality for mainstream users.

Samsung SyncMaster 955DF monitor

 

When I reviewed Samsung's 17 inch SyncMaster 753DF last year (review here), I was impressed

If I didn't have a 900SL already, I'd use a 955DF. Recommended

Wow...9 years since manufacture and still great.

 

I wish that this monitor would have better res up to 1900x1200 and at least 75Hz at 1600x1200. I give 5 stars because of how reliable this monitor has remained despite its age, even if it has some slight shortcomings. Of course the market for CRTs is...

The picture isnt curvy and is very flat and it is very sharp on text. The quality of plastics seems to be durable. I bought this used in June 2007 for $10 from Goodwill but it was already 5 years old and probably had some heavy use and still good

Refresh rates. The refresh I get at 1600x1200 is only 60hz. I can only get 75hz at 1400x1050, it would be nice if it was the 1600 res as well. If you want 85HZ or higher its up to 1024x768, pretty disappointing on a monitor this size

Was a great monitor...and I emphasize WAS

 

I've been using this monitor for quite awhile now. It started out great, but is now dying horribly. Over the years the anti-glare coating has either darkened or the monitor's brightness has significantly lessened as everything is much darker than it...

Has lasted a long time ; Still in focus after all these years

Heavy ; Slow refresh rate at top resolution ; Anti-glare coating gets wonky after a few years

Absolute Junk; Out of Focus; Don't gamble your money!

 

The screen is out of focuse to the point of being unreadable. There is no manual focus or sharpness adjustment. Part of my decision to purchase this monitor was the positive rating recieved from CNET. Purchasing a Samsung monitor is a gamble that I...

Inexpensive for the size

Screen went out of focus within a year after purchase

Hard on the eyes!

 

I got this monitor with my Dell Dimension desktop and have had it for 2 years now. Have had no problems except the text has been getting progressively worse as time goes on! It is fuzzy on text all across screen but especially bad in the corners of...

Not the best 19-inch, but good enough for the average user...

 

The color is certainly a plus - its two toned silver/grey housing looks very sleek and stylish. The 955 DF also swivels effortly, and contains an excellent OSD that's easy to navigate. Display quality is superb; the colors produced on its Dynaflat tube

At its recommended resolution and refresh rate (1280 x 1024 @ 70 Hz), the image does have a tendancy to shimmer at the sides at times, but at least its not constant. You can choose to run it at a lower resolution (1024 x 768 @ 85 Hz), which is absolutely

Product Specifications

Finally, a monitor guaranteed not to cramp your style. The short length of the SyncMaster 955SL will free up space on your desktop for the important things like photos of your summer vacation and your paper clip collection. The 955SL's 19" screen delivers superior performance, while taking up less space than a traditional 15" monitor. Your workspace should reflect your personality, and finally there's a monitor that gives you room to do just that. But, it gets even better. While you're thinking of ways to decorate your extra space, you also have the power to express yourself with the hottest technology, like 0.22 mm (H) dot pitch and 1600 x 1200 x 65Hz max resolution. SyncMaster's exceptional viewing capabilities will satisfy even the most discriminating tastes. Rich colors, crisp images, and high contrast enhance any application. Whether surfing the web, grinding out graphics, or creating standard business documents, the perfect, flicker-free images on the 955SL ensure viewing comfort and enjoyment to fit any personality. The SyncMaster 955SL gives you room to be yourself.
