Summary: For a regular user that doesn't require espectacular features, don't know about the details, ratios...thats the perfect lcd monitor. The image is very clear, colorful and the screen size is big enough to work, type, for internet and games. The price is reasonable, and its perfectly matched to what the device is worth. NO GOOD: no DVI cable. Just couldnt understand why. It's just a cable!
Summary: I bought the Samsung SyncMaster 940B in silver from a different retailer and its a great monitor. I work with dell flat screens at my job and I was amazed at how much brighter and sharper than the ones at work. I wasn't happy with the place I bought it from because they didn't send me any manuals, drivers , or anything.
Too Bright and some menu controls are "Not Available"

Summary: I just got the monitor yesterday. After plugging into my computer, I found the monitor was too bright. Unfortunately, my graphics card has no option to adjust the brightness, so I had to adjust the brightness to 0 on the monitor. Some menu controls, color for example, were "Not Available." It came with a base which cannot swirl. I could not see 3D-feel on small icons as they used to be on my 20" CRT monitor, but large pictures were great.
Summary: First off let me say that reviewer J. Burke is either clueless or got a bad monitor. I love mine. The colors are clear and bright and image is clear and smooth in games like Battlefield 2. Text looks great too, as I am a web designer and programmer and look at code often. I also have the 930B at work which is also a very good LCD display. Overall, I think Samsung is top notch. Between work and home I've been around 8 Samsung LCD's and not a single one had a bad pixel.
Summary: I'm a digital artist and I wanted to spend more money on my machine rather than monitor, so I tried this one out and love it. I have two of them. They don't have a usb hub or anything like that. It is what it is.. a simple monitor that works great. Took a little tweaking to get the resolution and color right (with my mac) but its got great color and is just what I need. I'll probably get two more for my other system and dump my CRT's.
Summary: While I have no experience with other LCD monitors(I upgraded from a CRT) so far I have been pleasantly surprised with the color and sharpness of the 940B. I could not locate any dead pixels. I have read other reviews and agree that the display is bright, but with a little tweaking it is not overwhelming. No DVI cable was a shortcoming. Amazon delivery was outstanding! The monitor arrived about 5 days ahead of scheduled delivery. Thanks to all involved Gary J.
