Samsung SyncMaster T240HD review


The 24-inch Samsung SyncMaster T240HD is a HDTV disguised as a $499 monitor. The OSD menu design is taken directly from the menus used in Samsung's HDTVs. It has tons of connection options--all of which face toward the back, not down as they do with...

Many connection options; accurate flesh tones and sharp clarity in DVDs; ATSC/QAM tuner; sharp fonts.

Drab colors in games; low brightness; bad OSD button placement.

With tons of connection options, great performance, and useful features like an HDTV tuner, the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD display is an excellent bargain.

Samsung SyncMaster T240


Can this elegant 24-inch LCD shine for gamers and casual users alike?

Once the Samsung T240 was out of the box, it was easy to see it looked great, and elegance and simplicity would be a strong selling point. But when it comes right down to it, the way a monitor performs and how its display looks is where a...

Samsung SyncMaster T240


Samsung has a reputation for making some really nice monitors and TVs and some of which we have reviewed right here at TechReviewSource, and the Samsung SyncMaster T240 hopes to live up to that. It's a 24-inch HDTV that serves as both a computer...

Many connection options ; Built-in ATSC/QAM tuner ; Very good TV picture quality

Computer video picture a little under-par

The display also comes with a 3 year warranty that covers parts and labor (including the backlight) and 24/7 toll-free support from Samsung, which is a great value for the money.

Samsung SyncMaster T240 TOC 24-inch LCD Monitor Review


Open the packaging and you are revealed with the following goodies…

Looks great; Construction; Image and text is sharp; Good colors; Lightweight; Maximum resolution 1920x1200

Only included DVI cable and no HDMI cable; Unusually high backlight bleeding/clouding; Touch sensitive power button needs to be more sensitive

If you’re on a market for a good 24-inch widescreen LCD monitor, the Samsung T240 is a good choice to look at. I just cannot give this unit recommendation because it had unusually high amounts of backlight bleeding and clouding. If these issues were...
