Syncmaster 243T

 

Samsung's 24-inch SyncMaster 243t has no desire to be a TV; it just wants to be a great monitor. It's one of the few wide screens we've tested that offers no component, composite, or S-Video inputs. When we initially tested the 243t (for our November...

Full range of physical adjustments

Slow 25ms pixel response time

A slow, 25-millisecond response time makes the 243t ill-suited for video playback. When we watched a scene from our test movie on the display, we saw distracting motion artifacts. In what may be a bid to leave those artifacts behind, Samsung now offers...

Samsung SyncMaster 243T 24-inch LCD Display Review

 

The included Pivot Pro utility offers good functionality for those who want to pivot the SyncMaster 243T's screen to portrait mode.

There are only a handful of 24" LCD displays in existence with the specs and quality of this one, and if you are in the market for a high quality wide screen LCD for computing applications, I do not think you will be disappointed with the Samsung...

It may be widescreen in shape and generous in size, but the SyncMaster 243T isn't strictly designed for home entertainment use. While at a cursory glance you may take this slick silver customer for a television, a second look will probably pick up the...

Ultra high resolution, Great for PC use, Well designed

It's a monitor, Pricey, Slow response time

This portrait format is much more suited to the likes of web browsing and word processing, and you can simply flip back to landscape mode afterwards

High image quality, very adjustable

Poor motion playback

Outstanding image quality and full adjustability options make the Samsung SyncMaster 243t an excellent pick for business applications.

Samsung SyncMaster 243t - 24" LCD Monitor

 

Some people say bigger is better, so if a 17" or a 19" LCD Monitor isn't big enough for you, Samsung's got you covered with their SyncMaster 243t LCD Monitor. This Monitor has a very slim profile and features a huge 24" screen that can also be rotated...

Great looking, Rotating Screen, Huge Viewing Area, Digital and Analog connections,

Price

The SyncMaster 243t LCD Monitor is a great looking monitor that would look great on any desktop. If you're looking for a really Big LCD Monitor you might want to check out the Samsung SyncMaster 243t LCD Monitor

I am greatly sorry I ever purchased this monitor. At 11 months it simply died. A call to customer service was an exercise in patience and tolerance of plain stupidity. The only thing the "tech" kept saying was ' I don't know sir , I don't know sir, I...

gets a lot of frequent flyer miles traveling back and forth for repair
