245T

 

Samsung's 245T is a great-looking, thin-bezel monitor that can swivel, tilt, pivot, and be adjusted for height.

Picture-in-picture Plethora of inputs

No Display Port connection No built-in speakers

Despite the 245T's $649 price tag, you don't get a built-in Webcam or speakers; but the display does have a picture-in-picture option--a great feature to have, in view of all the input choices

Review: Samsung SyncMaster 245T LCD

 

The Samsung SyncMaster 245T is a 24-inch LCD with multiple inputs and a flexible design. And though washed out at default settings, a little tweaking helped the 245T score well in our on-screen tests.

With an anti-glare screen, the 245T has a thin, shiny, black bezel with clearly marked buttons right on the front, right bottom of the screen. There are many connection options to choose from, including DVI, HDMI, Component, VGA and S-Video. The 245T...

Samsung 24 Inch LCD Showdown - 245T vs. 245B

 

Today we are going to take a look at a couple monitors from Samsung, the SyncMaster 245B and SyncMaster 245T, both of which are 24" Widescreen LCD's. Both of these monitors are very similar, however before we even begin I need to point out a couple...

Price ; Height Adjustable Stand

Lower Viewing Angles

I received the 245B almost a month before the 245T showed up and have been using it for almost 3 months now on a daily basis, and quite honestly for the price of this monitor, I am very happy with it overall. The viewing angle isn't the greatest;...

Beautiful mid-range monitor

 

I was looking for a 20+" monitor to attach to my 13" Mac PowerBook when a sales clerk recommended this monitor. It's not quite an Eizo but it's better than Samsung's standard fare and far superior to the low-grade brands like Viewsonic and no-name...

24" Screen size, amazing viewing angle, 1920x1200 res, usb hub, DVI + HDMI inputs, clarity of display

Price, higher resolution would be nice, uses 130 watts, kind of large

Product Specifications

The 245T monitor has a 24-inch, 16:10 wide-screen format, with a 178/178-degree viewing angle. The viewing angle is achieved via Samsung's proprietary Super Patterned Vertical Alignment (S-PVA), the latest technology advancement in liquid crystal cell structure, for an improved user viewing experience. The 245T monitor's ultra-wide viewing area can support a range of multi-window applications, thereby helping to improve work efficiency and reducing the need for two monitors. Furthermore, the 245T model features a high 1920 x 1200 resolution, allowing the monitor to deliver clearer and more precise images. The 245T monitor's image quality is also enhanced by Samsung's MagicContrast which offers a super high contrast ratio and an extra-wide viewing angle that's ideal for providing detailed onscreen images. With the 3000:1 super-high dynamic contrast ratio, it's easy to read or view content on the monitor's screen. The 245T model also comes equipped with MagicSpeed, which gives users an ultra-fast 6ms response time (gray to gray), making the monitor ideal for computer gaming and multimedia-driven applications such as motion or streaming video. A faster response time provides better performance of motion video, and produces smoother edges, clearer images and a more natural image response. These features make the 245T monitor an ideal choice for a range of high-end commercial applications that require clear and precise images, such as CAD/CAM fine-detailed drawings, web and graphic design and desktop publishing.
