Summary: I did not want a widescreen monitor since this is for work and widescreens take up too much space. I had purchased another Samsung monitor for my home so I knew it was a good one. I do NOT like the base that comes with it - makes the monitor tilt forward and there is no way to adjust it. I purchased an adjustable clamp style monitor arm and attached it (easily) to the back of the monitor and to my desk. Works great. The monitor is a good size for general office work.
Summary: I've owned a Samsung 740N for 5 years with no trouble, so I decided to try this 19" 943N. Was it worth going from 17" to 19"? Yes. The 943N looks great, text is sharp, no ghosting on games (Grand Prix Legends, NOLF 1&2) even at less than the native resolution - I run this monitor at 1024 x 768 for Internet use with the monitor about 4 feet away.
Summary: it was good to be able to purchase a standard screen monitor as i do not have the room for the new widescreen monitors (which are the only one you can purchase in stores. this one is a good size for me and it fits very in the room available.
Summary: I've had this monitor for about a year and a half now at work. It started off all fine, had no real issue with it apart from the fact when I'm working on photos the contrast and brightness do not seem to match any other monitor profile at all. The colour collaboration software also seems to conflict with Adobe Colour Profiles. However a few days ago when I turned my computer on it stayed black (I have a second monitor set as the secondary display that started fine).
Summary: 19 is agreat size much easier to view than my old 17 inch. Also easier to see full screen rather than widescreen which cuts of part of what you are looking at.Power button is hard to find until you get used to the touch panel.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace my ancient CRT 19" monitor. I researched and reviewed for 3 weeks and this one won out. The specs are right up there with the best of them. 1000:1, and 5ms. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I really wanted a bigger widescreen monitor, but my 7 year old computer with 7 year old hardware won't support the resolutions of a widescreen. I'd have to replace the display card, power supply, and probably stick in another cooling fan.......
Summary: I can live with this monitor, but the word lettering doesn't look as sharp as it does on the same-size Dell LCD monitor that I use at work. I think that I have tried all of the adjustments available to make it as good as it gets, but maybe not. The unadjustable base is a bit annoying.
