Samsung SyncMaster 930BF 19" LCD Monitor review @ TechSpot

By on November 9, 2005, 4:35 AM
A couple of months ago, we received an email from Alienware PR people announcing the launch of the new Samsung SyncMaster 930BF 19” LCD monitor. Under normal circumstances the press release would have been issued by Samsung, which wasn’t the case, so the product caught our attention immediately. The reason that Alienware issued such announcement was that the 930BF carried a 4ms response time, and as such it was a perfect fit for the gamers who usually buy their systems.

Eventually we managed to get an Alienware ALX gaming system for review (coming soon), too, but that’s a whole different story. For now we will concentrate our attention in the SyncMaster 930BF, an overall well balanced 19” analog and digital TFT-LCD boasting a fairly impressive response time, 160/160 degree viewing angle, and a 700:1 contrast ratio as its most important features.

Even monitor manufacturers have recognized an important niche to be fulfilled in the gamers and enthusiast markets; no doubt the 930BF comes as Samsung’s response to aggressive product offerings from companies like Viewsonic and Philips, who have caught a lot of media attention by releasing ever-faster panels, supposed to improve your gaming experience (although I’m confident saying most of you no longer buy on that promise ;)).

Recently I have been trying to chose a decent TV for my home and was first thinking of buying a Projection TV. However, when reviewing several models, I have discovered, that the picture quality and resolution leaved much to be desired. The colors are faded and not bright! This was a disappointment! Finally I have ended up with buying Samsung 19" LCD from eBay ( Blows away any other type of TV! Super sharp picture! I recommend this to everyone who's shopping around for a good TV. Though the price may seem a bit high, believe me, it is worth it!
