Not too long ago I had a chance to work with Samsung's 940BF, a 19" LCD display that was designed to put performance ahead of style and be one of the workhorses of the Samsung lineup. While Samsung's fashionable displays get most of the attention, most of their products are practically designed and aimed at the discerning consumer or performance minded business buyer. This what we saw with the 940BF and what we are seeing again with the 931BF. This may not be exciting if you are looking for something with a super cool exterior or a widescreen display, but they do have a lot to offer.
At this point in time 19" LCD displays are very common and they can be had quite cheaply. Among those available there wide spectrum- from those that are extremely inexpensive to those that are not as affordable but have performance advantages or an improved base. The Samsung name carries a price premium in and of itself, but most of their models bring something more to the table than an average 19" LCD.
The 931BF has a few interesting selling points, such as a 2ms response time and Samsung's MagicTune display technology. On the surface this product does not look any different from a number of other models, but it should be interesting to see how Samsung has set their product apart from the rest.
