In addition, the 3310 works as a standard flatbed scanner, a standalone fax machine and copier, and a modem that lets you fax from a PC. The device earns extra points for included drivers that enable scanning and faxing over a USB connection and a...

With an attractive design and all the adjustability a person could ask for, the 20-inch Samsung SyncMaster 204T could be an ideal addition to any home or office setup. This $599 LCD is a solid performer all around, but the Gateway FPD2185W bests the...

Above-average image quality; attractive design; solid base with great degree of adjustability.

No speakers, headphone jack, or extra USB ports; height adjustment stiff; slow pixel-response time; less than ideal DVD performance.

We found nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung SyncMaster 204T, a 20-inch LCD with an attractive design, decent image quality, and useful software, but other monitors offer more features for the price.

Though the picture looked a touch blue out of the box, just a bit of tweaking helped this display earn high marks on both color and text-quality tests. If you're looking for a highly adjustable, mid-sized LCD, you should definitely consider the...

Height-adjustable stand ; ability to pivot to portrait mode

Colors look a touch too blue at default settings ; visible color shifts when viewing the screen from an angle

When I attached the display to our test Mac using a DVI connection, the 204T automatically started up in its full, native 1600-by-1200-pixel resolution. Like many LCDs, the 204T's default color settings looked a little too blue and bright....

In the past we have looked at a handful of LCD displays from Samsung. These have ranged from 17 inches up to 19 inches in size. The features we've seen have been from few, to a full packed multimedia display with several inputs and built in TV tuner....

Large screen size ; Dual interface ; Wide range of screen movement ; Small overall size ; Internal power supply with switch

Faster response time would be appreciated ; Should have more downward height adjustment

Overall the Samsung 204T is a great monitor for those who have a use for a monitor this size. It's slower response times may hold it back from being used by the pro-gamer, but the sheer size and range of movement of the screen makes it just perfect for...

Fine picture quality, excellent for DTP and Photoshop work

Over 60 watts of power to operate, newer displays are close to half that, but that in understandable
