Highlights of the Syncmaster 940UX

Before we proceed with display tests, let's take a closer look at the 19" Samsung Syncmaster 940UX LCD. The display has clean lines and a very thin silver bezel around the LCD panel. The logos and markings are done in dark grey so as not to be distracting. The two-port USB hub is located on the back, about half way up along the left hand edge. The six control buttons are discrete but easy to operate.

The Syncmaster 940UX screen itself pivots 90 degrees, transforming from 'landscape' to a 'portrait' view with a native resolution of 1024x1280. This is great for reading full webpages or editing pages of text without constantly having to scroll up and down. You can see this in the image below, and note the location of those two USB ports when it's swung around to the portrait orientation.

The rear of the Samsung Syncmaster 940UX features a DVI, analog and USB input jack. A full size AC power plug connects to the display and there is a hard power switch. This is more environmentally friendly with respect to reducing phantom power consumption. The USB uplink port is adjacent to the DVI/Analog jacks, and a two-port USB hub is visible along the right edge in the photo below. A Kensington security hole is present in the bottom right corner. This helps to prevent expensive technology from walking out of your office door. On the base is a cable management loop to keep the video, USB and power wires organized.

The 19" Samsung 940UX display can be detached from the base for wall mounting if desired. Two screws secure the supplied base to the back of the LCD panel. Underneath are a set of four standard 75mm VESA mounting points.
