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;...

Samsung SyncMaster 245T

 

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

Plethora of inputs, picture-in-picture

No built-in speakers, no Display Port connection

It'll deliver a good quality image and has plenty of inputs, but it's expensive.

Samsung SyncMaster 245B

 

Rarely do we review monitors that don't require a lot of calibration, but Samsung's 245B was almost perfectly set up straight out of the box. We only ...

Suitable for watching high-definition movies and DVDs, good brightness and contrast

Noticeable colour-shift when viewed from the sides, it doesn't have a component input, slight red discolouration in the grey level

It's not a perfect monitor; viewing from the sides and from the top causes some colour-shift and it did look a little dull in our photo tests, but the 245B is a decent high-definition monitor for productivity and multimedia use. Because it's a...

Much sought after, but is the Samsung 245T the 24in display everyone should go and buy?

Samsung SyncMaster 245B 24in Monitor

 

A Samsung 24in monitor at a truly stunning price - what's the catch?

When it comes to 1080p video, a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution screen simply doesn't have enough physical lines at its disposal, not to mention that the full HD standard resolution is 1,920 x 1,080. With that in mind, a 1,920 x 1,200 screen obviously has...

With an anti-glare screen, the Samsung SyncMaster 245T has a thin, shiny, black bezel with clearly marked buttons right on the front, right bottom of the screen.

Despite its washed out default settings, the Samsung SyncMaster 245T, after calibration was a very good all around performer. Its wealth of input options, flexible stand and its sleek, black design make it a good fit for those looking for a monitor...

Samsung 245T review

 

Samsung's 245T is a great-looking, thin-bezel 24in widescreen monitor that can swivel, tilt, pivot, and be adjusted for height.

The Samsung 245T is best suited for users who need many connectivity options--because, say, they want to use it for PC work and TV/movie viewing. But the 245T is more expensive than other, similarly specified widescreen LCD displays.

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.
