Summary: Flawless from day one..DC converter is in the power cord not the monitor..You can run this monitor off any 12volt battery..Only the 19inch version had this feature..dvi input works with any cable converter or hd tuner or dvd player that has a dvi output or hdmi output with a converter..
Great for its day and still a great second monitor.

Summary: I bought this monitor back in 2003 for $950 which was not too bad as not many people had LCD monitors back then. Most had CRT monitors and they were huge boxes that generated a lot of heat. The Syncmaster 191T came out and I knew I had to have one. So far after 9 years of heavy use and 4 computers, it still works great. This Monitor is not as bright as the current LED and LCD monitors but as a second monitor it is a perfect size and still is as sharp as the day I got it.
Summary: I bought this monitor for a second computer for backup. It's crisp and clear. I purchased Samsung because I have had a 21" for about 8 years now and it works just as crisp and clear as the day I bought it.
Summary: I have owned 4 Samsung monitors. My experience over a 10+ year period has been well beyond my expectations. During this period I did not experience a single problem with any of the monitors. In fact I did not even have a single burnt out pixel on any of them and I still have the first one I purchased 10 years back. The overall picture quality is slightly above average. Sharp and clear, good contrast and color rendition. Minimal slight leakage.
Great monitor, portrait view is great for .pdf docs

Summary: I have used two of these 191T monitors in my office for almost three years. One has been flown across the country (in a Pelican 1610 case, which now costs about the same as the monitor) a few times and is no worse for wear. They are both great monitors. We use them mostly in portrait mode for word processing and for viewing .pdf files of letter-size documents. We turn them to landscape mode for spreadsheets. The included PivotPro software v.768 is pretty bad.
Summary: great monitor, good price, i have owned mine for the better part of two years now. i have recommended it to all my friends, and four others have the same one and they seem very happy with it. Clear text, and fantastic picture quality. everything is included and although it does the Pivot deal with the picture, never really used it. it has adjustable height and tilt. only problem with this monitor is i cannot find another one.
Summary: I luv my monitor! Great display! Sharp, bright... When I play a DVD with digital its awesome This model has a portrait mode feature which is incredible for doing work on "portrait" type MS Word documents
Good image & features, bad design, inflexible pixel policy

Summary: I bought my 191T+ to relieve eye strain. The quality of the picture and the effect on my eyes is a huge improvement over the 17" CRT I had been using before. It does not seem any brighter than my Apple Studio display at home (although it is supposed to be), but it certainly does the job on that point. My main complaint is that there is a dead subpixel on mine right in the middle of the screen.
Summary: This is an a good monitor. The image quality is very good. I have 2 in a multi-monitor configuration with a Sony SDM-S91/B in the middle. The 191tplus makes the image on the Sony monitor look dirty! The white on the Sony monitor actually looks brown when compared to the white on the 191tplus. I've had the Sony for about six months and I just got the Samsungs to increase my screen real estate.
