Get the most vibrant color out of your gaming experience with Samsung's sexy LCD.

Brilliant colors, ergo options, and lots of inputs

Weak at the dark end of grayscale; curious intermittent picture hitch

We must note that Samsung’s monitor revealed a flaw similar to the one in HP’s screen in Pixel Persistence Analyzer. We saw hitches in the 244T’s picture, but they were only sporadic, and we couldn’t detect a problem in any real-world tests, so we’re...

Samsung impressed our test jury once again with its SyncMaster 244T. This wide-screen display collected enough performance points to push it to the high end of our Very Good range. It's also cool-looking , with a thin silver bezel. It sold for $1000 on...

Slim and sleek-looking, lots of extras Excellent image quality

Lock makes it hard to adjust height

On-screen display adjustments are very extensive. In addition to having presets for brightness (what Samsung calls MagicBright), the monitor also gives color presets in the MagicColor Pro section of the on-screen controls. There, you can change hue,...

Native Resolution: 1920 x 1200 pixels x pixels, Screen Size: 24 inches, Type: Monitor, Aspect Ratio: 16:10

Strong digital performance. Lots of video inputs. Built-in USB ports.

Expensive. Weak text performance.

Samsung's SyncMaster 244T is a slick-looking widescreen LCD with good image quality and a bevy of input options, but there are better deals to be had for the money.

The handsome 24-inch Samsung SyncMaster 244T offers picture-in-picture capabilities, a great selection of inputs, and a plethora of image-setting options aimed at professional users. If optimum color performance in a wide-screen format is your top...

Fine image quality and color accuracy; highly adjustable; HDTV-ready; includes picture-in-picture; offers many image- and color-quality adjustments; features digital and analog ports, as well as inputs for S-Video, component video, and composite video.

Expensive; poor DVD-playback quality.

The wide-screen Samsung SyncMaster 244T delivers good color accuracy, but you can find better monitors for the money.

Of course, a drastic step-up product does take a little getting used to. When a predominately white Word document like this article is open, the SyncMaster 244T tended to light up half my office like a lamp. Mousing also took on a new cadence, as I now...

Samsung SyncMaster 244T: Monitors

 

As video cards continue to become more and more powerful, support for multiple monitors is becoming increasingly common. But instead of buying 2 monitors of marginal quality, what if you could buy one huge monitor instead? And what if that monitor...

After using the SyncMaster 244T for a month, I really had second thoughts about my decision to get two monitors.

Colour reproduction and text

Limited height adjustment may not suit all

The Samsung SyncMaster 244T offers a very nice image with some useful features, though shorter people may find the minimum height of thestand doesn't suit their needs.

Lag. It's a small word. But it's a big problem for this otherwise rather awesome 24-inch monitor. It's utterly baffling that a company like Samsung considers the 50ms of input lag this display suffers from to be acceptable

Image is deep and crisp

There's an unacceptable amount of lag

The lag is a real oversight and will affect gamers, otherwise this would be unbeatable
