Excellent Product

 

The screen is magnificent! Color and clarity are excellent. One of the reps helped me pick this monitor for a new computer in our office. This was definitely the right choice. Cost was not unreasonable. Thanks!

Everything you expect and more

 

I got this monitor for 249.00 and like always this company's delivery did not disappoint me, it was very fast. The monitor is huge and the picture quality is amazing. It would have been better if there was a tilt on it but there is not, so you have to...

Great value in a great monitor

 

I really like my Samsung. It's big. It's bright. It's clear. And the price was right.

Excellent

 

Widescreen monitors are not always better. Someone needs to make 4X3 monitors.

I've owned 2 of these since late 2004 and that now makes them over 6 years old and still working great. Excellent quality. I use them with my $4400 Matrox Editing Computer. It is a real shame that most people now think they need a wide screen LCD with...

None. They make more heat than LCDs and take up more space but I still prefer them.

What is everyone talking about?

 

Great monitor, great price. Looks kinda wide screen ish ... so thats another plus in itself. A must buy for those of us not born into wealth. ;)

Excelent Picture Quality! This monitor is a HUGE upgrade from my 6 year old Dell 17`. The picture clarity is awesome and I'm not exactly understanding why everyone is saying there is distortion on the screen. Granted out of the box the screen does have...

Expect a little bit of tinkering to get a perfect picture and the included software (Magic Tune) to crash. Search around the Samsung website to get an updated version (4.0) ( http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitors/magictune/magictune_05s.htm ) and...

Fantastic Monitor

 

If you cannot afford a good LCD, pick this monitor up, yeah it might be a huge honking CRT, but it is well worth it.

Wow, where should I start? I upgraded from a dying 17" CRT monitor, I purchased this monitor for its cheap price compared to comparable LCDs and the low, 3-day shipping price. Thanks newegg ; First off, this monitor is big, and in a good way. It was...

Only con is that top right hand portion of the screen displays fine text a tad blurry. I am just nit-picking here, you probably won't notice it

SAMSUNG 997mb-TwoTone Silver-Black 19" CRT Monitor 0.20mm(H) Dot Pitch D-Sub

 

This monitor is a great investment for a bright area, due to it's already high black point and the ability to double or quadruple the brightness of the screen with the magicbright function. Beware of your computer desk: this moniter is a little bit...

It is very inexpensive for a flat screen CRT, and the monitor itself has a bevy of tweaks in it's menu

The black point is very poor unless you go through your graphics card to adjust the gamma, at which point it functions properly ; There is the problem of some distortion occuring along the edges of the screen. In order to correct this, you *must know...
