Better than average Web Viewing.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: After trying to see whole web pages on smaller monitors and HD monitors, I opted for the 5:4 ratio monitor and am delighted. It's less scrolling down the page to see the whole page. Great resolution and supurb quality for a refurbished device.

Bad power supplies

Joel Mcgregor, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: A company I work for bought about 18 of these 3.5 years ago new with 3 year warranties. Of course right at the 3 year mark they started dropping like flies. All so far have bad power supplies. Most of them have been bad capacitors but some have something else wrong with the power supply. These monitors are made by Hannspree and remarked as Samsung. I call that deception when Samsung is actually a monitor manufacturer.

Bad power supplies - Dont Buy

B. Bomhard "IT/VTC Tech", Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Our office purchased about 30 of the Samsung 943BX monitors about 6 months ago to be used as 2nd monitors. Since then we've had to send out 4 units for repairs due to bad power supplies. The Blue LED will just flash but no image will appear. Would not recommend this monitor as something that will last very long.

Incompetent Adjustment Control Design

Abominable Abe, Amazon
15 October 2008
  • Summary: This monitor is bright, colorful, and basically the best you can get for under $300 in terms of picture (though I've noticed a lot of eye strain comes with this). However, the person who designed the adjustment buttons should be taken out back and kept from working in this industry until he or she reaches at least the age of 13. They are awful.

Glossy Bezel

Dennis, Amazon
13 October 2008
  • Summary: Overall we like this monitor. The only possible drawback is the glossy bezel which can introduce some glare. Our older Samsung 214T had a flat finish which is what we prefer.

Very good monitor but you'll need a flashlight and patience

I. Weiner, Amazon
2 October 2008
  • Summary: Installed well and produces a very good image. If you want or need to change the factory settings, you will be in for a frustrating experience. First off, you will need a flashlight to see the adjustment buttons. Then you'll need a lot of patience in trying to make the desirable settings. The buttons are very sensitive and do not always activate the first time. It took me many tries until I finally got the settings I wanted.

Great Quality Image

Joel Serbinski, Amazon
23 August 2008
  • Summary: I have not yet experienced a LCD monitor this good. The picture is excellent, there is very nice smooth/shiny finish on the screen, and I love the zero-force touch buttons that are part of the frame. My digital video card went bad right before i got this monitor, so i have only tested the Analog side of it. I think some of the software will not work because of this. However, the menus/options on the monitor itself allow for all the configuration i need.

Improvements

Will Bueche, Amazon
10 March 2008
  • Summary: I'll expand this review once I've received the unit. Meanwhile I wanted to note the differences between this model, the Samsung 943BX, with its immediate predecessor, the Samsung 940BX. The back of the monitor is now softly curved instead of sharply angled. The stand has been reshaped and imo looks prettier, more organic, less industrial.
