SyncMaster 215TW

 

Big, Bright Widescreen Display

Great color and brightness. Extensive input options. Instant input switching ; Weak speaker. Display modes seem a bit gimmicky

Weak speaker. Display modes seem a bit gimmicky

The SyncMaster 215TW should be on your short list if you plan to upgrade from a smaller desktop display.

Samsung 215TW 21-inch monitor reviewed

 

We know you've been fretting the Vista-mandated upgrade to an HDCP monitor (haven't you'), but according to this review of Samsung's new 21-inch widescreen addition to the prolific Syncmaster series, the transition shouldn't be that tough. At 1680 x...

It is not every day you find a monitor that's larger than average with great ergonomics, tons of features, and every input imaginable.

Samsung SyncMaster 215TW - 21in Monitor

 

It looks like the best 20in widescreen monitor may be a 21in widescreen monitor.

Samsung - SyncMaster 215TW

 

As you might have guessed from the model number, Samsung's latest TFT isn't the usual, run of the mill, 20.1-inch panel, but a 21-inch widescreen display which has the same native resolution as most 20-inch panels; ...

It's not cheap but it does have an impressive array of features, particularly when it comes to adjustment and connectivity and - with the HDCP support - a degree of future-proofing too.

Samsung SyncMaster 215TW

 

I would have to say that the higher price that the 215TW comes with is money well spent. The image quality is slightly better, and the connectivity options are in another league altogether. Probably the only downside to the 215TW is the lack of USB 2.0...

Good value, service

 

Great picture for business apps and gaming, great value, crappy sound, but really--does anyone expect integrated speakers to sound like anything other than garbage? Rotating the display works flawlessly, but the base feels a little flimsy during the...

Great service and support, clean picture

Rotation feels a bit flimsy, lame speakers

Consumer review by:

This monitor is terrible.

 

Turned the monitor on and spent several hours trying to get the colors just right. The monitor has too much red by default and blues tend to fade into violents/purple at times. I had the monitor hooked up for a few hours and a blue vertical line now...

The monitor came with a DVI cable and a power cable

blue vertical line, too much red, blues not always blue

This is a great monitor. It has a great picture quality, many adjustable options. It has component, VGA, DVI, S-Video, RCA (AV)Inputs and I haven't seen one with at least one dead pixel. Excellent Monitor works great with Windows Vista, Xbox 360 and...
