Samsung SyncMaster T220HD

 

Samsung's SyncMaster T220HD pulls double duty as a desktop display and an HDTV while adding a touch of color to your desktop.

Great color reproduction. Lots of A/V connections. Stylish design.

Weak grayscale performance. Lacks USB ports. No VESA mount capabilities.

Samsung SyncMaster T220 review

 

Is it possible to base an LCD purchase strictly on the display's bezel? If so, Samsung has an LCD to sell you. The Samsung SyncMaster T220 features the company's new Touch of Color bezel, which presents a most attractive visage. The black frame...

Smashing good looks; matte finish means less glare than with glossy screens.

A tad on the pricey side; merely average performance and feature set; wobbly stand.

The Samsung T220 might be the most stylish LCD monitor we've seen, but average feature set and performance diminish its overall appeal. Despite its flashy looks, it's best used as a simple, productivity display.

Samsung SyncMaster T220HD LCD Monitor

 

The Samsung SyncMaster T220HD is a great solution for anyone looking for a sleek monitor that doubles as a TV. It's an even better deal for consumers shopping for a small HDTV.

Elegant design; good performance for most users; two HDMI ports; built-in high-definition TV tuner; impressive-sounding speakers

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Samsung SyncMaster T220 Widescreen 22 Inch LCD Monitor Review

 

If there's one thing that you've got to hand it to the people at Samsung is that they know what it takes to make a seriously stylish product. We're talking dollar sign bling…

Simply stunning aesthetics ; Sturdy base provides peace of mind ; Brilliant performance ; Low power consumption, especially on standby

Access to VGA, DVI, and power connectors is cumbersome ; Controls for on-screen menu aren't conveniently located ; Not everyone likes the deep red look ; Price is not a selling point (MSRP of about t conveniently located ; Not everyone likes the deep...

The Samsung SyncMaster T220 LCD monitor doesn’t really bring anything fresh or exciting to the market in terms of technical features. Yes, they may boast about the 2ms response time and the 20000:1 contrast ratio, but the average set of eyes won't be...

Not all monitors are created equally. The Samsung T220 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor fuses a sleek and colorful look with cutting-edge technology for a result that is bound to impress multimedia fanatics and knock the socks off power gamers. After you...

The Samsung T220's stand is not height adjustable. Big and tall users may have to use a phonebook or stand to bring the Samsung T220 to eye level

Samsung SyncMaster T220HD 22-inch HDTV/LCD Monitor Review

 

The T240 being 24-inches in size could achieve a 1080p resolution of 1920x1080 pixels but moving down two inches means the T220HD being only 22-inches only can muscle 1680x1050 pixels which means HDTV signals will be down-scaled.

Beautiful looking monitor/HDTV; Image quality as a monitor is very good; Good color rendition and sharp text; Includes both VGA and DVI cables; 2 HDMI connections; Digital optical out; Lightweight; Great HDTV performance; ATSC tuner is sensitive and...

Base needs weight because it causes the monitor to wobble; Integrated speakers are only decent; HDTV picture/color looked a little soft; Slight ghosting in games and when watching sports

If you’re on a market for a 22-inch widescreen LCD monitor, the Samsung T220HD is something you should check out. It’s a good pick. For the most part, this monitor produces great colors, sharp text, and while there is slight ghosting in fast action...

Samsung T220 LCD Monitor

 

In an attempt to break the ordinary and bring a splash of colour and design into a typically untouched area of computing, Samsung has recently released the T220 LCD monitor. This is a 22" widescreen LCD monitor with a startling 20000:1 dynamic contrast...

Amazing looks and styling (as I've said; unique!) ; Great performance ; Dynamic contrast ratio of 20000:1 ; 2ms response time ; DVI and analog VGA inputs with both cables included

Compared to the 2232GW from Samsung, I felt it had slightly weaker colours and clarity ; No wallmount bracket holes

Overall performance of the T220 was still great, as we've come to expect from Samsung LCDs. No two LCD monitor models will be alike when it comes to their display abilites. If I wern't testing the T220 against another monitor, I would say that it's...

Samsung SyncMaster T220 LCD Monitor - HardwareZone.com

 

Samsung is a rather popular choice among the style conscious due to its emphasis on design. This trend is now extended to its LCD displays with the latest SyncMaster T220.

Product Specifications

Add one-of-a-kind style to your office. Samsung has created a design unlike anything you've ever seen called Touch of Color. The T220 not only has beauty, it also has brains. An amazing 10000:1 contrast ratio and 2 ms response rate deliver sharp contrast and virtually no blurring when watching movies or playing video games. You'll be inspired to create your best work with the Samsung T220. It looks more like a beautiful piece of art than a monitor.
