Samsung SyncMaster 932B
The SyncMaster 932B is an ordinary monitor based on a TN matrix without response time compensation. Although Samsung’s website declares an average GtG response, my measurements suggest that this is a typo. The matrix of the 932B behaves alike to the above-described monitors with a response time of 5 milliseconds on the black-white-black transition.
The key feature of this monitor is its exterior design. The SyncMaster 932B does not look like a monitor. It rather raises associations with a TV-set stylized to look like retro televisions with a conspicuously rounded-off outline. This design can be argued, but I like it. The monitor is attractive with its uncommon appearance. And it is the overall design rather than some shiny inserts or super-bright LEDs that appeals to the eye here. I have no doubt many users will like the smooth and rounded-off outline of the SyncMaster 932B.
Besides the silver-and-black coloring, the monitor is available in white and black versions. The biggest drawback of black plastic is that it gets soiled easily. Your fingerprints are going to be just too visible on the glossy surface.
A graceful round stand is fastened to the monitor from below and allows adjusting the screen tilt only. It cannot be replaced with a VESA mount.
This is a curious stand – I mean the way it’s fastened to the monitor. You won’t find a single screw hole here. There is only a round knob on the base with a couple of small juts which serve as screen tilt limiters.
