The gamma curves differ from the theoretical ones at the default settings. The red curve has too much of contrast, the blue curve has a bad shape and coincides with the X-axis in its first 10% stretch. It means that darkest blue tones are displayed the same as black (this effect is not very strong in practice, however, and won’t be a big problem for most users).

As is often the case, the gamma curves become almost ideal when the contrast setting is reduced.

The color temperature setup is a nice surprise: the dark grays differ from white by no more than 600K in any of the modes. This is a very good result, especially for this product class.

The color gamut is standard with a larger green zone and nearly full coverage of the sRGB space.

The average response time is 4.5 milliseconds and the maximum is 20 milliseconds. Those few slow transitions spoil the average, preventing the monitor from entering the ranks of the fastest available models, although the difference can hardly be caught by the eye alone without measuring instruments.

There is no RTC error on most transitions, but it amounts to almost 50% on the few remaining ones. The average is only 8.2% which is good for a TN matrix. The errors are not annoying, but you can see a white trail behind a dark object moving on a gray background if you are attentive enough.

The max brightness is normal for a TN matrix while the contrast ratio is high, being well over 300:1.

Having added Response Time Compensation to an already good model, Samsung made the SyncMaster 932BF a very good choice as a home monitor. It features a good contrast ratio, low response time, correct color temperature setup, and an interesting appearance.
