Samsung SyncMaster T240HD

 

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.

GREAT HARDWARE

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...

The Samsung Touch Of Color 24" T240HD LCD HDTV Monitor is a combination monitor which delivers quality visuals in a beautifully sculpted VDU. But can it crack the competitive computer monitor market where Dell, LG and BenQ have some forminable...

Samsung T240 24-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Review

 

In today's digital world the majority of computer users are using LCD monitors. No matter where you are using a computer, in the office or in the home, Samsung is one of the top manufacturers of LCD monitors. Typically, LCD monitors are pretty much...

Large 24-inch workspace ; Native 1920×1200 resolution ; 2-Port USB Hub ; Roughly 0.3W standby power draw ; Great look and feel

No height adjustment

Final Thoughts The Samsung T240 is the largest LCD monitor that I have reviewed and have used. Assembling the base, clearing off desk space and turning the monitor on just made me giddy. The moment I booted my computer and started using it, I was...

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.

Today, we have in our hands another top of the line monitor from Samsung, the T240. Stylishly finished in piano black and accent red, this one looks as good as it performs.

Samsung T240HD Monitor

 

Packed to the gills with features and connections, this newest monitor from Samsung doubles as a full-fledged HDTV, featuring on-board analog (SD), digital (DTV) and unencrypted cable tuners, as well as built-in audio, with a fully functional remote...

This new Samsung has extensive connectivity options going for it. Three digital inputs, one component video input, and one VGA input mean the set could theoreticaly support a PC plus up to four other HD-capable sources (well, five if you count the...

Samsung SyncMaster 240T 24-inch TFT Flatpanel Review

 

The Samsung 240T is obviously reaching out to the higher end markets and providing those users with a massive screen space.

I suppose a TV-tuner would have made it the ultimate TV / computer display, but given the corporate and high-end user markets the Samsung 240T will really appeal to, this would have been a step backwords. Ultimately, this is one of those rare moments...

Samsung Syncmaster T240

 

Samsung's Syncmaster series emphasizes straightforward plug-and-play HD media capability. The Samsung Syncmaster T240HD is slightly undersized if you want it to double as an HDTV, but for getting up close and personal with games, media editing, or...

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...
