View Full Version : Samsung 955DF Monitor - Good Price!
10-22-2000, 05:55 PM
I was just searching around and I found the new Samsung 955DF (19" Flat CRT) for a good price at chaseshop for $313 + $3.50 S/H, and Samsung has a $30 mail in rebate exp. 10/31 so it's a good time to jump on this...
Here's the product spec's:

It's a nice deal. I was gonna buy it but after several discussions with fellow apexers, I chose Iiyama. If I knew this price before, I'd probably get Samsung instead. Once again, it's a nice deal.

Yeah, I was going to buy that iiyama on the front page for $265, but I *really* wanted a flat CRT cuz I fell in love with my NEC MultiSync FP950 (Flat CRT 19") but it's about $600 or so, and this Samsung is half the cost! Only about $20 more then the regular iiyama which isn't a flat CRT...

I found the same monitor for $280 + plus shipping (which is about $17 for me) plus you can still use the rebate.

Sorry, that URL leads to the 955SL which is a regular short depth version. The 955DF is the Flat CRT... Their price at that same store is 331 + S/H.....
I hope that is the model you were wanting and not the Flat CRT...

Oh Sorry. I thought I had found a good deal. Im kinda new to this stuff. I didnt order the monitor, I looked at the 19" a little and I decided that a 17" would be better for me.

Only about $20 more then the regular iiyama which isn't a flat CRT... NEC's MultiSync FP950 uses Mitsubishi Naturally Flat tube. http://www.necmitsubishi.com/products/home/product.cfm?productid=36&cfid=222016&cftoken=94058070
Samsungs 955DF monitor is a shadow mask tube. http://www.samsungmonitor.com/html/955df-spec.html
Note that in the Samsung 955NF specs their playing the game of boasting about the horizontal dot pitch not diagonal dot pitch.
A more accurate comparison for the NEC FP950 would be
Samsungs 900nf monitor also uses Mitsubishi's naturally flat tube. http://www.samsungmonitor.com/html/900nf-spec.html
I prefer aperture grill type monitors over shadow mask tubes.

The 900NF is a really nice screen. I'm saving my pennies for one - if there's another samsung rebate and an onvia $50 off coupon going at the same time, I'm gonna grab one.

This monitor is their Dynaflat IFT style which is basically the same as their 900IFT, only newer model. I've seen the 900IFT before and it's pretty flat! It should be here in a week or so, so I'll take a pic and let everyone know more when I get it...
My point is though that it was about half the cost of my NEC FP950... :) I'm just curious of the quality.
10-23-2000, 08:40 PM
Let us know how the quality is when you get it! Thanks in advance. I been looking to buy a new 19"er too!

I was talking about Iiyama i90A, the flat screen, not the one Apex posted recently. It is 450 bucks plus s/h. FYI, .20 horizontal dot pitch monitors usually have a .14-.16 vertical dot pitch. Using A squared plus B squared equals C squared, we get: .244-.256.
19'' SyncMaster 955DF Monitor for about $175 after..
$50 off $200
then click onvia
(Don't know does this "$50" work or not.I want some detail about this)
10-24-2000, 01:44 AM
damn, that's an awesome deal.
10-24-2000, 08:52 AM
How the heck did you get $175 ??????????????
Please tell us.

Well, I got my monitor today... At first it was a little fuzzy, but after I adjusted the moire it cleared right up. 1024x768 runs very nice, 1280x1024@75Hz also runs very nice.... 1600x1200@60Hz is even fine. The glass is totally flat, and there aren't the two lines on it like the Triniton's!!! For the price I highly recommend this monitor. It's not as nice as my NEC MultiSync FP950, but it cost about half as much too. :)
The box says up to 1600x1200@75Hz NI, but Windows only let me go to 60... maybe it's my video card's limitation, I don't know....

Could anyone help me out here, I think you need the onvia coupon code in order to get the 50 dollar off 200.
So please, if you have a coupon code for onvia, email me at [email protected]
Did someone buy the Samsung 955df monitor on chaseshop.com. And ask how many years for the warranty?

I thought the $50 off at onvia had expired already? I know that when you follow the link to ttp://www.onvia.com/seattlechamber/home/index.cfm it says
"For those of you who haven't had a chance to use the $50 coupon offer, it has been extended for you! Receive $50 off a $200 purchase. Use your coupon number or call Customer Service at 1(800)299-1410. Offer expires October 31st, 2000."
However, the coupon code for that expired a *long* time ago, It's '02024630', if you want to take a look for yourself.

I've tried it too, and it didn't work.
I even called CS, and the guy said that it's for Seattle Chamber members only. and that Onvia can't give out coupon codes over the phone.
