Samsung SM930BF not living up to PC Advisor Spec

  Richmond34 22:59 09 Mar 2006

I have just bought two Samsung SM930BF 19" monitors on the recommendation of PC Advisor. The picture quality is great, but all the reviews, and the Samsung Website product spec page, say that the screen has adjustable height AND can be rotated 90 degrees into portait format. This is clearly not the case with the two models I have been sent, which have a stand offering fixed height and landscape only. Have I been sent dodgy product or are the reviews and product descriptions misleading?

Does this help?

There's quite a few members with this monitor, hopefully someone can confirm it either way for you.

I've checked the site and with your model there is nothing about adjustments. Some models do have the 'magic' adjustments but yours clearly does not. The picture should be able to be rotated through 90 degrees by using the graphics card options. The options with the screen are clearly indicated. click here

Thanks for all your replies. This is very strange. I bought the monitors having read the review in PC Advisor and seen it in the charts for best monitors at the back oc PC Advisor. I still have the page which clearly says the screen is height adjustable and rotates. After receiving the monitor and finding this to be untrue, I went onto what I thought was the Samsung website - where I believed I read the same thing - you you are all right in saying the samsung webste you point me to does not say this. Nevertheless, the PC Advisor info on this monitor was incorrect - any comment from them on this?

Quote from page 13 May 2006 PCA

"In previous issues PC Advisor stated that the Samsung 930BF flat-panel is height-adjustable and has a pivot function. This was incorrect, and the Samsung features angle tilt only."

Ah - thanks. That will explain it. Bummer that I did not properly check the Samsung website before buying. Lesson learned I guess - magazines make mistakes :-)
