    Given that the Samsung 930BF and 940B are very similarly priced, I was wondering what the difference is between the two. I know the BF has a faster response time, but what does the 940B have that makes it worth the "extra" money?

    They're exactly the same price :)

    The 940B is just the old 913B rebadged. It's a previous generation screen, but that doesn't really mean a great deal, it's not like there's a huge difference between 4 and 8 ms. The only thing it has over the 930BF is the height adjust + pivot stand. The 930BF has a very limited stand. If you want to put a centre speaker under your monitor, the 940B can do that, the 930BF can't. That's about it.

    The 930BF is a good monitor, I have one. I am loathe to reccomend it though as I have lightbleed across the midle of mine.

    The addition of a heavy dose of overdrive on to the panel (they both use the same Samsung TN Film panel really) on the 930BF has helped improve responsiveness a little, and makes the 930BF a little faster than the 940B. However, this has lead to a slight loss in movie playback quality as noise in movies is accentuated a bit more. As has been said, functionality varies, so bare that in mind too. If you want a gaming screen then the 930Bf has the slight edge. If you are not a major gamer, and want the functionality more, get the 940B :)
