Refurbished just okay. Not as good as brand new.

Summary: We ordered a refurbished model. This monitor is okay but when placed next to our other Samsung SyncMaster 940BX, it appears to not be as bright. Having the brightness adjusted to 100% on both, this one is about 75% as bright as our other one.
Summary: I ordered a 940BX but received a 940T. It is a close match but I wasn't notified of the difference before it was shipped to me. I have a four monitor stand so it is important to get matching monitors. The 940T was close so I kept it.
Summary: This monitor died after about a year and a half of moderate to light usage. This is quite disappointing. I have had monitors last up to 10 years. If not for this, I would have said the monitor was great.
Summary: My Samsung SyncMaster 940BX computer monitor is about 3 ½ years old. It was repaired twice under warranty and now it has failed for the third time. Unfortunately, the warranty expired in January and the cost to repair it is about $80, which doesn't seem worth it given the history of this monitor.
Summary: I got this monitor for a home-office setup, not for movie watching or the like. There are fewer and fewer 4:3 options in LCDs, and this monitor is ideal for a dual-setup (I am ordering the second one shortly after Christmas).
Summary: This is not one of the cheapest LCD of its size. But it worth the money. I chose it because it is brighter and smoother. It is easy to adjust the brightness, several pre-settings and a fine tune. Very easy to use. I used it as an extension to my laptop.
Summary: I bought a factory-refurbished one of these based on excellent reviews in several places. I wanted it for photo editing on a limited budget. I especially wanted a 4:3 aspect screen because that's the best for most photos. This seemed to be just what I wanted.
Summary: I bought this because it was highly recommended by Consumer Reports. Also, there were a number of positive reviews on Newegg and other places. Boy, was I excited. Once installed, though, I was no longer happy.
