Samsung SyncMaster 940MW

 

Meets all the criteria, but not well enough for the money

Wide range of sockets

High price, Sound

This can be a bit of a chore, especially with the on-screen menu system being somewhat less than simple and intuitive, but at least the built-in MagicBright system gives options for Entertainment, Internet, Text and Custom settings

940MW-SV LCD TV/MON

 

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...

Fantasmic!!!11

 

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
