Rebate is slow.

It works exactly as represented. No surprises whatsoever. Overall quality very high and had all the interfaces to do what I needed. Sound is incredible for this type of product

None with the product. Setup was easy and without any problems. Operation is intuitive and front panel access to everything necessary

Samsung 940MW


I use this Monitor/TV as a secomd monitor to expand my desktop area and to allow me to watch TV at the same time. In most cases I use the PIP mode which shrinks the picture and greatly improves clarity. I return the first monitor that I received to...

Excellent as PC monitor (bright and crisp) ; HD/TV picture quality good ; Sound quality excellent ; Excellent if you plan to use as a second monitor on your PC

Picture quality is poor when using STD cable input (not HD) displayed full screen. However when you use the PIP feature the the picture quality is very good. That is how I use mine most of the time

Best monitor/hdtv for the money


This monitor fit all of my needs at a price that I couldn't beat. If you are in the market for a high quality monitor with great addition features. Buy this. If you are in the market for a small LCD HDTV. Buy this. You will not find one anywhere near...

This monitor is replacing both my 21"CRT and my 13"TV, and I gotta say, it does a superb job. The Picture-in-picture is invaluable. The HDTV quality is amazing and the PC resolution fits this monitor quite well. I have only played COD2 on it so far but...

No huge complaints, just a couple of little things. 1. A/V inputs on the side of the monitor. What do manufacturers do this? It's a shame to buy such a beautiful piece of hardware only to have multiple wires sticking out the side. If you are using this...

I am an incoming college freshman, and I will be living in campus dorms. I was in the market for an LCD tv to save space, but quickly realized how expensive they were. I then pursued the route of buying a lcd monitor for my laptop (because they are...

None...really. For laptops, just remember to use the "Fn" key plus "F8" or whatever your "CRT/LCD" button is, to switch between your laptop screen to the monitor. It doesn't let you know this in the monitor

940 MW=Happy


The 8ms response,sharp, high resolution/contrast,screen is perfect for console and pc games without and saves some space.

This lcd as a tv has excellent picture quality (using now to play old xbox and 360 in hd), it is also a great pc monitor. No problems with it at all and it's easy to switch from pc to tv or the different inputs with the included remote

16:10 takes a little while to get used to and it hasn't cured cancer, yet

Amazing Picture for an Amazing Price


Great monitor/tv. Love the PIP.. Sound is great and the quality is AMAZING

Consumer review by:



This is a great monitor for the price. There were no dead pixels and I have yet to notice any kind of backlight leak. If you are lookin to get an lcd/tv I would definitely recommend this one

My 940MW


The Name sells this Monitor, when you buy it you will see why. As a Monitor it was so Bright I had to turn it down & as a TV i watch it now - NOT my Sony Wega. It's more then the Best -I'll never go back to a CRT. i Get To Watch TV When The Grand Kids...

No downside - Everything works like it should & better - Even the TV - you have 3 sizes to set TV at All are good

Don't have any - Does not come with a DVI cable - so buy one New Egg has good ones 10ft. for $15.00 or so
