“I've got this monitor as a second monitor for my...”

★★★☆☆

written by on 27/04/2011

I've got this monitor as a second monitor for my laptop. The laptop has a HD LCD display, and I have to say, the difference is very noticeable. The LCD display has bright colors, the white is as white as it possibly can get, and the same goes for the black, and of course all other colors. The SyncMaster 753s on the other hand features gray as black, some very light gray color as white, and the actual colors in the rest of the display look nothing like my HD screen... You can't get true colors, just something that kinda looks like the original color.
Having that said, I'm amazed by the lifetime of the screen, and also by the overall sharpness of the images displayed. The display shows just a single problem: when it hasn't been used for a longer time, it looks as if someone has been playing with a very strong magnet near the screen. The simple solution is the "degauss" option in its menu, so I can live with that.
Great lifetime, great sharpness, not really great colors. 3/5.

I'VE BEEN USING THIS MONITOR FOR 8 YEARS. A VERY TRUSTWORTHY MACHINE IT IS. ALL THESE YEARS I SAW ALL MY FRIENDS STRUGGLING WITH THEIR MONITORS AND CHUCKLED. SYNCMASTER 753S GAVE ME ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM DURING THESE YEARS. YEAH, SURE IT LACKS THE CLARITY OF AN LCD MONITOR, BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT. IT'S GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY. I'M GONNA BUY A NEW LCD MONITOR IN A FEW DAYS AS MY OLD MONITOR NEEDS SOME REST, BUT I WILL MISS MY 753S. ADIEU MY FRIEND.

Amazed at these reviews. I've had this monitor for 12 years. It's seen 4 base units off the premises. Still as crisp and clear an image as the day it was bought. Maybe there are too many many friday afternoon models around, but mine is Tuesday morning. Personally well recommend the Samsung SyncMaster 753S, great computer monitor.

I had this Samsung SyncMaster 753S monitor for about a year and today I disposed this off. Its the worst one I ever saw. I have bought it because of the brand name but suffered like anything. The picture quality is bad, distortion appears and very frequently something or the other happens to it and I have to call the mechanic.

written by sudheer on 29/09/2004

This is a worst brand of monitors. My Samsung Synmaster 753S is creating lost of trouble after 3 months of service. It seems one of the primary colours is missing and display is purple now. This happens so early. I doubt the real quality of these monitors.

I thought Samsung made good quality products (they are the fastest growing electronics brand in the world today) alas my Samsung SyncMaster 753S monitor lasted a mere 3 months before burning out - and I had hardly even used it! The one year guarantee basically meant nothing 'cause the aftersales service has been atrocious! I'd stay clear of this model! (theres at least 5 other ones in my local computer store waiting to be repaired!)

“I appreciate a lot in buying SAMSUNG Products only...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by haripn on 10/08/2003

I appreciate a lot in buying SAMSUNG Products only because of the Trust in Quality and Service given by the company. I have been using a Samsung 14" 4Bni Monitor for the last 4-5 years. I use a Samsung CD Drive, own a Samsung 21" Colour Television (Super Horn). I have bought all these appliances from Samsung just because I feel the company is different from all other companies and does their part well in the society. I recommend to all my friends and relatives to buy Samsung Products... Now last week I bought a Samsung Sync Master 753s 17" inch Colour monitor. The day I started using the monitor I started getting problems like a glow or extra brightness with slight red colour getting emitted from the right down cornour of the screen. I reported the problem and the people who service it asked me to contact the Trichur Branch. By doing so after many service calls atlast a person came to check the problem. He deassembled the unit and made some changes in the circuitary. The next day morning I got a blurred screen I could hardly read any letters on screen. I soon contacted the Ernakulam branch for further assistance. They said I have to take the Monitor (17") from my home town Chalakudy to Ernakulam nearly 52 Kms. I did so paying a lot for the Taxi. They examined and told me that tere was some error and that they have corrected it. Now what has happened is that the picture towards the right goes beneath a darker region, which makes the slider controller etc of a notepad look slanty. I tried to make changes by altering the Geometry settings using the control pannel of the monitor. But I find that the picture moves but the black shade as if the picture tube is only displaying till that area remains the same. Sir why is it so when I bought the monitor they or the company says 2 yrs. warrenty. What meaning does this have? I asked for a replacement of the monitor as this one is brand new and I have used it hardly for a Week. They say company gives only service guarentee. If its so it should be stated to the customer that only service guarentee and not warrenty is given to the monitor before he purchases it. Please do the needful for my problem. I hope the SAMSUNG Company that I believes to be a Customer friendly would look in to their customer's problems and try to give a solution. I am totally unsatisfied with this monitor, as with in 1 week it has started giving me problems. I would like to get a replacement for this monitor. Please try to understand a customer's need and unhappiness when he gets a defective monitor that too a costly one.

I've had this monitor for 18 months and have to say for £110 it was a great buy.
<br>Its sharp (though not as good as more expensive flat screens), is flicker free at 1024x768 and mine suffers no problems whatsoever depsite being transported all over country when I've moved houses. However I did have problems with a friends 750s that you say should be fine. The monitor is so dark even on 100% brightness and contrast I have to up the settings manualy via his Geforce card settings. But I think that might be due to being too close to a loudspeaker when I transported it??????????
<br>There may be a few rogue ones about but overall for value for money the 753s has got to be about the best thing I ever purchased, an enormous improvement over the belina 17inch I had before it and gave away with my old PC which was too blurry.

“The problems mentioned with the SyncMaster 753s are...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Vikram. on 26/06/2003

The problems mentioned with the SyncMaster 753s are NOT unique. They exist in ALL of them. My unit showed a terrible vertical wave-like distortion throughout the screen straight out of the box! Also, the 753s has too much of a downward "pull" in the image exactly at the top centre. I was told that this is "normal" for a conventional CRT monitor. It does exist in the 750 also, but it is negligible. In the 753s it is nearly 1mm downward!!

I received no reply from Samsung Corporate office even after contacting them in writing through the web site. The local service centre was not sure what the problem was. I spent several hours with them at the service centre comparing different 753s pieces. I pointed out that the centre pull existed in all 753s monitors.

However, the wave distortion was unique to my brand new purchase. It was was resolved only after replacing the entire picture tube. All this within 4 days of purchase. Absolutely pitiful for Samsung.

From what I have experienced, it seems as though Samsung has found a way of forcing users to go in for the expensive flat screen CRT monitors.

On the whole, I am horrified with the whole experience. Samsung MUST replace recall all 753s monitors and replace them unconditionally.

Syncmaster 957mb and 959nf have exactly the same problems. I really, really don't get why Samsung haven't developed a way to adjust the horizontal lines...My new 959nf pulls down with about one mm! And there's no way to correct this!!!

Yes, I have the same problem with 959NF, a downward "pull" in the image exactly at the top centre. I bought this monitor about one week ago, and for this kind of reason I must tell you I'm really desapointed.
<br>
<br>I have at work a more cheaper 19" Hansol monitor with Samsung DynaFlat Tube (1280x1024@85Hz), but is almoust perfect on horizontal side. I mean, this is not "funny"? I bought a Samsung monitor with Diamontron tube to work at 1600x1200@85Hz and of course for a higher price, but I wasn't expected to have this kind of problems.
<br>
<br>I wrote to Samsung Service and I'm realy curious with what answer they will give me.

HELLO, WHAT THE ABOVE USER HAS MENTIONED IS REALLY TRUE. IN SYNCMASTER 753S THE GEOMETRICAL POSITIONS ARE A WAIST. IMAGE IS BLURRY. SERVICE PEOPLE CANT WORK OUT THE PROBLEM. THEY ARE NOT READY FOR A REPLACEMENT TOO. THE BUYER HAS TO SUFFER EVERYTHING. THE MONITOR IS BRAND NEW AND BAUGHT IT ONLY LAST WEEK. THE PROBLEMS HAVE STARTED TO ARISE THE NEXT DAY OF PURCHASE AND SAMSUNG IS KEEPING QUIET EVEN AFTER CONTACTING THE COMPANI ONLINE.

“UNLIKE ITS PREDECESSOR, THE TRUSTED 750S, THE SAMSUNG...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Siddharth Mishra. on 02/11/2002

UNLIKE ITS PREDECESSOR, THE TRUSTED 750S, THE SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 753S MONITOR SUFFERS FROM UMPTEEN DEFECTS - HORIZONTAL SCREEN EXPANSION - YES THE SCREEN ACTUALLY EXPANDS HORIZONTALLY IN JUST UNDER AN HOUR OF USE, EXCESSIVE MOIRE ESPECIALLY AT 800 * 600 RESOLUTION (THOUGH NOT SO AT 1024 * 768).
POOR SERVICE AND WORKMANSHIP - SAMSUNG'S NEHRU PLACE(DELHI) SERVICE CENTER HAD NO CLUE AS TO THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM AND HAD TO BE INSTRUCTED BY THEIR BOSSES IN KOREA TO RECTIFY IT- EVEN THEN ONLY THE SEVERITY OF THE PROBLEM DECREASED.
Don't GET ME WRONG - I'M NOT AGAINST SAMSUNG, INFACT THEIR HARD-DRIVES ARE NOW BETTER AND MORE RELIABLE THAN SEAGATE HARD-DISKS.
SAME FOR THEIR CONSUMER ELECTRONICS PRODUCTS.
BUT BE WARNED THOUGH, SAMSUNG MONITORS AND OTHER IT PRODUCTS, MADE IN INDIAN FACTORIES, HAVE A VERY HIGH FAILURE AND MALFUNCTION RATE. (HARD-DISKS AND OTHER SUCH STUFF IS MANUFACTURED IN KOREA - FOR GOOD REASON).
(THE 750S WAS NEVER FULLY MANUFACTURED IN INDIA)
GO FOR THE LG FLATRON 795+/775+ - IT'S PRICEY BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Hi, I have had the 19 inch version of the samsung syncmaster 753s. Touch wood the monitor has been fine except for when you switch the monitor off and leave it for a very long time and then switch it back on it very rarely comes up multicoloured. switch it off and on it is sorted. I think it is something to do with how tight you install the svga connector to the graphics card. Because its very rare it happens and usually when i have just had the pc appart.
<br>
<br>What do you think? past the warranty now but hasn't been bad. when the monitor is on, no problems up to now touch wood.
<br>
<br>
<br>what do you think, thanks dan.

I have not noticed any other defects apart from hissing sound. I have had the 753s syncmaster for just over 4 months. The hissing will drive you crazy if you are anything like me.
<br>
<br>It seems to have other defects that i have not experienced so if you are thinking of buying this monitor give it a long hard think as to whether or not you think it is worth the risk.

Even I am facing the same problem with my 753s samsung monitor.It goes pink frequently.Degaussing doesn't help.Some mild shaking is required to restore the monitor to normal condition.
<br> Please,do post what is the current status of your monitor after servicing.And can I do something myself to make it work,without going for the servicing? thanks.

Some nice person probably dropped it while in shipping.
<br>The only thing atm that is playing up with mine is it goes pink after the power save has been on for a while and you wake it up. I just degauss it. Your problem sound different tho. Take it back to the supplier. Its either the plug (move the vga cable around and see if it stops it (monitor and box)). if not the ray gun thingy in the actual monitor has been damaged in production or shipping. had a monitor years ago that went blue flickery lines all the time it was one of the ray guns. return it>
<br>what refresh rate is it running at ?

I decided to purchase the samsung 753s monitor at the end of its production life. So i bought 3 of them for a bargain price. One of them has the problem of tilting horizontaly after about 5 hours of use in 1024 x 768 with a low refresh rate and then after about 12 hours the whole screen suddently will go pink and green with a wave effect.(degauss fixes this) BUT the other two monitors have been great monitors leave them on for days on end without fault. So i think their problem would have soemthing to do with the people on the production line.

Neo,
<br>I bought this monitor when it was a week old in the market and so did two of my friends - we all faced the same problems to some extent- as for agp card and drivers I have GF 4 Ti 4200 from ASUS and detonator 43.51 - don't say anything. The recent lot of monitors may no longer be facing the same problems-monitors are much like automobiles in that respect - and some credit would go to harried users like me who made the idiots at Nehru Place aware of the problem!
