Default samsung 793df or samsung 793mb?

Hi my monitor just died on me and I have to choose between these 2 monitors. What is the difference? Other then the mb has some brightness options that the df doesnt have? the df seems to be a few dollars more. Thanks for your help!

I agree on the 997DF. The MB models are the latest Samsung models that have the Magic Bright option. I am not sure why you need it though the DF models are plenty bright.

I got my gf this monitor for Christmas. Very good for being inexpensive. However, it's a little too bright imho (without providing ample contrast to make up for it).

Or you could go for a refurb trinitron for about the same price...very common and great quality.

wouldnt mind a 19" im in canada though doesnt appear that they stock it in futureshop i guess i can look around locally to see whats out there. Basically i was going for the 17" because of the price range im in. But thank you for your replies i was really happy with my 753df so i will either go with the 793mb or look into a 19" solution what other 19" would you recommend?
