Samsung 214T

 

Like a French restaurant, Samsung serves an appetizing entree. It's also damn expesive.

Mammoth screen, beautiful picture, and lots of extras

Most expensive monitor tested in our April 2006 roundup; flawed game performance

We were, in fact, smitten with the big beaut, until it came to gaming, where signs of ghosting in three different titles left us cold. While the environments themselves looked stunning, movement—particularly in areas of high contrast—revealed a lag in...

Samsung 214T review

 

Samsung's 214T has a brushed greyish-silver surround and stand. As with the other two standard 20.1in displays, you can swivel its screen from side to side and rotate it through 90. It is not possible to adjust its height, however.

Excellent for video editing and games

 

Able to see differences between close shades of gray.

I wish that the documentation provided idiot level instructions for some of the advanced functions so I did not need to test them to see what they did.

Two more

 

Just ordered another two of these for my dual setup at work. Previous post was for home. Only 1 dead pixel at the bottom of the screen on only one monitor. It is set up as second display so I don't really notice it. These displays are great for...

I love Samsung

 

First Lightscribe Drive. Was waiting for one of my other drives to finally bite it before buying. Very impressive technology. Some have complained about the speed of the Lightscribe, especially on high contrast. Just start it and go do something else....

Great monitor. much bigger than my 22" CRT. Have two of these on a Quadro card and it is awesome. Color presets are right on with color calibration software. Between the two monitors only one dead pixel

lower left corner slight color distortion. Controls for custom color are not very easy to figure out

fine monitor

 

No spkrs is a plus on a monitor. These don't have them to take up unnecessary room. The monitor does come packed in portrait mode, but I had no problem rotating it into place. I should say, I do not game or need special speed, etc. Am running it on a...

I only gave myself an average understanding, since monitors aren't what I'm best at. But this is my third LCD display, all still functioning fine. One is a 19" SyncMaster 910T, which this one is now beside. Color, etc, setup was easy. It is HUGE. Lots...

If anything, it may be TOO big. Took me a while to feel like I'm not falling in. Now want a second, as I use dual displays on KVM and dual computers. But really they are fine together, and the picture setup matches well

Not so good

 

I wish there were 'input lag' standards because then people would know this befor buying a unit. I bought Westinghouse 24" which does not exhibit the lag effect and is just like a CRT. My opinion is if your sensitive to a snappy mouse, which I had no...

Excellent colors and great brightness for a 21". Did not have to fiddle much to get the colors right, pretty much out of the box and ready to go

I think its just Samsung but I also bought a 244T and both monitors exhibited the same issue of input lag. The best I can describe is its a feel of the mouse not being as snappy as it should. You move the mouse and it 'lags' behind. For some people...
