I had never used a widescreen display before, so it was a bit of a leap to spend this kind of money on this device; I didn't know whether I'd like the format or not.

Well, I personally have found:

1.) Widescreen is a great format both for watching movies and doing work, as it enables you, if you wish, to display 2 roughly letter sized pages alongside one another. Also almost every DVD coming out now supports the wide aspect ratio.

2.) This is an exceptionally high quality monitor. Its housing design is slim and sleek and does not draw attention to itself, unlike some of the ones that have silver and flashy stuff all around the screen. Rather, it allows the user to focus on the display. The screen resolution is standard for the size, 1440x900, and this seems more than adequate for all but the most demanding graphic design.

3.) This is a very robust product with regard to support. My entire computer crashed and all I had to do, once the system was repaired, was to go to the Samsung website and download the driver. Furthermore, unlike some LCDs that require manual adjustment of every little thing such as contrast, etc. Samsung has an "AUTO" button that simply and effectively does these for the user.

All in all, if you are looking for a widescreen 19" LCD, I highly recommend the 640BW. I do not work for Samsung; in fact, I am partial to ViewSonic products and was planning on getting one but it was not a good deal vs. this product at the time.

Want to get into LCD monitors for nearly $100 cheaper than most LCD screens?

Look no further, because this is your screen.

The price? Every bit worth the $200-range price tag that it could be (just think it could be more!). Most monitors at 19" (let alone not even widescreen) still selling for nearly $350 or more in stores and even online. It won't take your wallet, but it will take your breath away. I looked for ages for an affordable LCD screen that I could use for gaming, graphics, and general use. I was disappointed by the featureless screens that are no more than a brick sitting at your desk, and for $200 I expected more than a 15" screen! I was absolutely flabberghasted by the affordability.

This dangerously thin LCD has an unheard of (for this price) 4ms repsonse time, enough to do gaming (World of Warcraft, iRO, Black and White 2) and get the most out of your MMORPG 64 fps.

With all the pluses of this screen (wide, affordable, large screen area, 300 lumens of BRIGHTNESS) it's hard to imagine any drawbacks to this affordable alternative to heavy CRT screens. The only drawback being that it cannot rotate to portrait. This screen is only destined to stay in its landscape world.

Excellent monitor.

I bought my Samsung 940BW from a local electronics center. I would also like to share what I know about it since items I bought from Amazon has always met my satisfaction owing to the good reviews I read about them here.

Everything that the other reviewers found very good about the Samsung 940BW is true. It's display is tack sharp from corner to corner. It is unbelievably thin yet hefty, too. I was originally looking for the 940N model (4:3 aspect) not the wide screen but now that I saw how the 940BW performs, I wouldn't have it any other way. This LCD display is worth every penny you pay for it in terms of performance, good looks and bang for the buck.

There is only one very, very important catch to have all these benefits from your 940BW: Your computer system must be able to display a resolution of 1400 x 900 pixels and 60Hz the native format of the 940BW. Just like what the other reviewer said. LCD 101: Use the 1400x900 format. This is the key. Let me break this down into question-and-answer.

Question 1: How do I know that my computer can handle 1400x900 pixels?

Answer 1: Here's one way that worked for me. In your present setup, go to your system display properties. Look for the slider that changes your screen resolution. Move it towards the right. If it can go to 1600x1200 and beyond, then your system can handle 1400X900. My maximum before I hooked up the 940BW was 1600x1200, 85Hz. After I hooked it up display properties magically changed this maximum value to 1400X900, 75Hz all by itself, without me doing anything else! My 80.xx-series nVidia drivers, GeForce4 MX 128MB video card and Windows XP Home identified it as Samsung SyncMaster automatically. I am using the native format of 1400x900 but at 75Hz (instead of 60Hz.

I didn't buy this product from Amazon but felt this a good place to review it as I shop Amazon all the time and get good info from these reviews.

Since I just got this monitor for Christmas, I can't speak from a lot of experience with it. However, I'm very happy with it so far. I did have to return the first one for exchange due to a "Stuck Pixel" that showed as a red dot on the screen. I tried running a few programs that cycle through the colors to try and unstick the pixel based on some things I read on the web, but they did not work. I exchanged the unit for another, and it works like a charm. Here's what I really like:

* It's crisp and bright

* Wide Screen Format is fantastic

* Has both VGA and DVI inputs and is selectable from the front panel. I've got a PC on the VGA port and the Mac using the DVI port with a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter to use as a second monitor. The monitor comes with DVI and VGA cables. I was up and running in about the 5 minutes it took to unbox, plug in the connectors and attache the stand.

* The price is great.

For PC users, windows XP worked just fine with it, I didn't have to load any drivers from the provided CD.

For Mac Users, same deal...It just worked! ;) And since I was adding it as a second monitor to my Intel Based iMac, I simply went into to the System Preferences, opened Displays, turned off mirroring and configured to meet my preferences for the second display and I now have a lot more screen space to work with!

The only downside to this monitor that I could see, was that when playing a DVD in fullscreen mode, it doesn't compare to the monitor built into the iMac (which I'm not surprised).
