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...

Samsung SyncMaster 215TW LCD Review


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 review


Bright, good colours - but why the multimedia pretensions?

Great colour rendering ; Extensive input options ; Fast input switching (one button) ; 21-inch widescreen aspect

Weak speakers ; MagicBright modes a bit gimmicky

Bright, widescreen and great for all-round use. The built-in speakers are poor, though

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...

Best Monitor ever owned


I am worried that samsung will never offer this again, since it is better than most HD televisions at a fraction of the cost. I wish I could afford another. Never had a problem with the response rate (unless maybe the delay is the reason I am so bad at...

I picked this monitor up after reading a glowing review from government computer news(GCN). The color accuracy is amazing, as are the rich blacks. Having all the inputs make it the best deal you will find for HD

There are some syncing issues with my Xbox 360 and the monitor, but I dont know which one is causing the problem. You just have to turn the monitor switch in the back on and off. Not a pain if you are sitting right in front of it
