Amazon has the Samsung 955DF 19" Dynaflat Syncmaster Monitor 1600x1200@68Hz on sale at $226.94 shipped free, no tax in CA.
found at TB, does anyone have this monitor and is this a good price for it?

I bought this monitor about a year and a half ago and paid about $350 for it at Onvia. I was kinda skeptical of the refresh rate at 1600x1200, but I have had no problems with eye strain or anything of the sort. For a 19 inch monitor I would say go for it. It is really good price.

I've literally seen over a 100 of these monitors. This is your basic run of the mill monitor. It's not great but not bad at all. The only thing is that it's not 100% flat. It almost seems like there is a flat glass plate in front of the actual monitor and you are looking 'into' the monitor (more so than other monitors like it). For the price (free shipping and no tax) it's a great value. A few months ago it was almost impossible to find these monitors in stock anywhere (even at a higher price although there use to be a $40 rebate).
Jigglin, if you live in SoCal you can usually see these monitors at those internet/gaming cafes. Alot of those places have them.

Than what makes think it isn't flat. Look at it from the side and it looks completely flat to me.

Sorry for the confusion. The monitor front is completely flat. What I meant was that the back surface of the front is curved and MAY give a 'looking into a monitor' illusion. It's hard to explain but this is more noticeable on some monitors than others. I notice it more on the 955DF than on a Viewsonic or Sony monitor for instance. From what I've read, monitor manufacturers do this (curve the back surface) to make focusing easier. But this is a minor point and it's DEFINITELY better than conventional monitors. I almost bought the 955DF but couldn't find it in stock when I was looking for a monitor. It was around $285 not including tax about 6 months ago.

...and I've been *fairly* happy with it. It doesn't have that little 'something' that my 17" Viewsonic has, but it's a clear, bright 19".
Anyway, it's a good monitor for the price (I paid $170)
-excellent on-screen menu
-good software for monitor control, and drivers in Win2000/XP
-18" viewable (true-not 18" only if you look at a weird angle)
One thing...If you *have* to view at 1600x1200...invest in a better monitor. The refresh at that res just doesn't cut it.
I use it at 1024x768 @ 100Hz...perfect for my Radeon AIW.

I got this monitor at dell, this summer, 191 shipped, 151 after rebate. For thr price I paid, it is excellent.

I'm looking at one now. I agree with Bires and PokeyThePenguin. I bought one cheaper from Dell the last time they were on gotapex for around $162 after rebate. So, the price doesn't seem the best. Compusa may have one that you can look at. I run 768 x 1024 so refresh is no problem. If you don't see the need for a 21 inch and want a 19 inch right away this isn't bad, otherwise you may get a better deal on it or a better 21 inch later. You can't beat the free shipping through Dell though, although there have been plenty of 21 inchers from Dell posted here lately.
