7 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its LCD Screens

Samsung small monitors have good ratings on average and across all PC screens Samsung is one of the better rated brands.

LED Display Type

This flatpanel monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

We compared all the other PC monitors that have an LED Display to this PC monitor and we think the S19B420BW (£122.88), and the S19E450MW (£109.18) both from Samsung or the Philips 203V5LSB2 (£103.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Samsung SMT-1930 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other small monitors that have been around for a similar time to the SMT-1930 do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the VB199 (£122.84), or the VB198T (£130.87) both from Asus.

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the Philips 19P4QYEB.

Two BNC Input Ports

The SMT-1930 has more BNC input ports than most of the similar spec PC screens that have been available for a comparable time to the SMT-1930. Most of the flatpanel monitors of this age and type only have one BNC input port, however this Samsung PC monitor has two BNC input ports.

Chart Edit

Very Long Mean Time Between Failures

The average mean time between failures of PC displays of a similar type and age to the SMT-1930 is 29,000h. At 50,000 hours, the SMT-1930 has a very long mean time between failures compared to most of the other small monitors that have been available for around the same time as the SMT-1930.

6 Reasons Against

Like most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age, the SMT-1930 does not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The SMT-1930 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec flatpanel monitors that are a comparable age to the SMT-1930 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

The SMT-1930 is one of the less economic to run flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we have assessed for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the SMT-1930 is £49.


Expensive for a PC Monitor That Was Launched More Than a Year Ago

We thought that this Samsung LCD screen looks expensive for a PC monitor that was launched more than a year ago. The cheapeast flatpanel monitors of this age and spec that we found costs £42 and the most expensive costs £504.


Small monitors that came out around the same time as the SMT-1930 have weights of between 140g and 5.8kg. The Samsung SMT-1930 is quite heavy (4.7 kilograms) compared to most of the other small monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the SMT-1930.

Average Width

At 446.4 millimeters, the SMT-1930 has a pretty average width compared to most of the other small monitors that were released around the same time as the SMT-1930.

If you would consider a LCD screen with a wider width then you might want to look at the Samsung S19C200 (441.4mm and higher rated) or the Samsung S19B420BW (£122.88) (444.5mm and cheaper).
