    My family got me this LCD since the one I wanted to get sold out and they got me a similar type

    Question will be is this monitor really good for design, or just what is the quality of this monitor A rate from 1-10.


    Sorry but all the sites I couldnt find a product review for this one

    I got this same monitor today. I haven't gotten to try it out at the native resolution as I still need the adapter for my macbook but I did try it out on an old computer over VGA. I don't know too much about comparing LCD's but it seems pretty nice to me. There is very little leakage even with the brightness all the way up on a black screen. The response time seems very good. I do not notice blurring. The color enhancement modes really help the picture to look better. It comes with a cd with software that I didn't try, but overall it seems pretty nice.

    I looked around a little bit for reviews online but couldn't really find any for this exact model.

    Just to resurrect this post, but I too received the SyncMaster 920BW from a friend and I'm having trouble getting 1440 x 900 in OS X.

    Can anyone help me? Is it possible to edit the com.apple.windowserver.plist to edit the "max supported resolution"

    I've tried all that I know how to do.

    Thanks so much.

    getting res 1440x900 for Samsung 920bw

    I tried OS 9.2, OS X (10.2, 10.3), and different video cards (in a G4 AGP 400mhz), and finally succeeded by putting in a fatter video card (Nvision Geforce 64 meg). ATI 16 and 32 wouldn't do it, although in numbers they seem to have the raw horsepower. I also tried a device made by "Dr Bott" but it didn't help. I sprung for the Nvision card partly because I thought maybe the ATI didn't have good drivers, but I think it's hardware rather than software that's the problem.
    When I put the monitor on a different machine--G4 dual 500 (OS X 10.3) that had a fatter video card to begin with--there was no problem at all, the image was excellent, resolution easy to find.
