Summary: I bought a refurbished version of this monitor, and am completely pleased. It has accurate colors and appropriate brightness. It has both analog and digital input and I am using the digital. I had to switch the input mode from analog to digital.
Summary: Just finished using a Spyder3 to calibrate it. Result? Exactly what I expected. The super-narrow viewing angle kills this thing completely. The bottom of the monitor is reddish and the top is greenish. Despite being in calibration. Avoid this. Plain and simple. I'm replacing it and selling this one.
attractive 19in model, but uses cheap 6 bit TN panel

Summary: I bought this when it first came out, and based my purchase mostly on the the specs and the increased color gamut. I wish I had waited and will probably buy a better monitor. I had a NEC crt 22 monitor prior to this and only replaced it because it died.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these monitors for office use and gaming. Compared to the CRT I had before, these monitors are incredibly bright and crisp. In order to get the colours to look right, I had to fiddle with the settings quite a bit, and turn the brightness down to about 25%.
Summary: This monitor is so worth it. The silver and gloss black exterior only alludes to what will happen when you turn it on. Im a graphic artist so its important that my monitor shows true and varying colors. The software automatically set the monitors color range.
Summary: This screen is a replacement to one of 2 SyncMaster 793DF (17" CRT) that I use side by side. Standing next to the 793DF, the screen of the 931C appears substantially larger - what a difference 2" make! This probably has to do with the 5:4 aspect ratio compared to the traditional 4:3.
Summary: Overall a reasonably nice monitor. A PhaseOne LE license was included. The colors of the monitor are very "candy" and the backlight quite bright. However the contrast ratio is closer to 1:500 instead of the marketing "1:2000" (which apparently was calculated separately from full and then dimmed...
Summary: As a graphics professional, I need color to be as spot on as possible. My trusty CRT monitor had finally died, and although not perfect, it had faithfully reproduced most colors and dynamic range to the point where I could trust it with $10,000+ print jobs and hard copy proofs were a mere formality.
