Looks like a good one. I have a Samsung flatpanel (741b) its not as good as the one you are looking at but it is really good. I use mine for gaming and watching movies. Samsung makes good monitors.

I've bought that monitor 1 week ago...Well its good...but not perfect. For what exactly you need it? If its games than its perfect (almost).

1) In games the response is superb. If you have fast graphic card and 1gb or more of RAM for running games in 1280-1024 res its perfect. I'm playing on it BattleField2,NFS:Carbon, GTA:SA.
The only problems are - not very big bleeding on top (1 - 1.5 cm) You can see it in NFS carbon, because game is rather dark and bleeding affect black color. And in GTA:SA - CJ's skin is not normal black but slight orange...dunno why but other homies are normal =) On my old CRT LG 795FT everything was cool. And viewing angles are not perfect... its hard to find perfect location of your head =) BF2 is perfect, only when you are sitting in da chopper and looking on the rotating blades or at the sky and moving mouse very fast you'll be able to notice "rainbow effect" (dunno how else I can call it) The colors of the sky mixing up and are not showing properly....BUT its really slight and only for 0.5 seconds. And that don't affect gaming at all. Everything is cool.

2) Office, Internet. The screen is big 19" plus its not WideScreen. 931c is very bright and have a high contrast (too much i think). If you put Bright. on 10 and Contrast on 40 its still very bright. On white screen its rather painful for your eyez. But still you can set it to 10 10 or even 1 1 =) And also you can notice not perfect viewing angles, its because monitor is made with TN matrix (fast but not high quality).
For photos...I've notice some orange skin on the people faces. If the photo is bright and clear everything is cool, but if it was made in dark room with a lot of shadows you can see this "Orange Skin effect" like with CJ.

3) Movies same as photos...sometimes orange skin apears. Plus its not widescreen, for movies its better to have WS. But everything else is cool. I was really enjoying watching Windows Vista's Videos for tunning monitor. They are high quality and are made for testing and tuning your monitor.

Wow....I've did my 1st review! =) Ok...so for that monitor i give 7 out of 10.

P.S: I have 1 dead subpixel on the left side of the screen it appears only when screen is black (Its hard to see that litle dot...really). There are color profiles for monitor. They are set almost correctly. But still
you'll need some time to tune it for yourself.
phuuff..thats all. Ask if you need something. I've written all the bad sides, everything else is good.
