Samsung T260HD


The Samsung T260HD performs very well as both a monitor and as a television, which is not something many other combination monitors have been able to manage. There are a few drawbacks, such as not having the picture within a picture feature and the...

Review: Samsung T260HD HDTV Monitor


One of the hallmarks of technological progression is consolidation. Given the similarity of many types of devices, it makes sense that as technology progresses features are combined. After all, having a phone with media playback capabilities makes more...

Previewing DV clips and other digital source material on your computer monitor is fine if your video project will only be seen on another computer. But if your project will ever be viewed on a TV, many editors find using both VGA (computer) and NTSC...

ATSC monitors, while not as numerous as either NTSC or VGA style monitors, are perfect for digital editing and graphics composition. While "standards" are still being defined, to get the job done you can expect a native resolution of 1280 x 1024. ATSC...

Not so long ago, a flat panel monitor was an extravagant purchase, where a 17 inch LCD monitor would cost over five hundred dollars, and that wasn't even for a widescreen model! Thankfully, manufacturing technology and costs have improved, resulting in...

Ultimately, it's best to see a monitor in action for yourself, but that's not always feasible, so check out our expert and user reviews to see which monitors are the best for your needs in features, price, and functionality. At TopTenREVIEWS, we do the...

What Matters: Inexpensive CRT and LCD models are suitable for general use, but many full-featured models are worth the extra cost

Shadow-mask displays employ a metal sheet perforated with small holes to focus an electron beam that illuminates phosphors on the inside of the tube. These monitors usually have a slightly curved face, though some flat-screen models are available....

Samsung T260HD 25.5" Widescreen LCD Monitor


As monitor it is fair good. I wish the screen can be brighter. The TV HD tuner does it job well, the digital channels are very clear. I have compared this one with other brands of monitor & it seems that the Samsung is a little pricy but offers the...

Samsung T260HD 25.5" Widescreen LCD Monitor


The picture is generally good on digital channels. Analog channels have a lot of static. The unit lacks the number of connections in and out to use with other devices.

Good picture on digital channels

No Picture in Picture feature. Second HDMI port on side of screen instead of back of unit making it difficult to use in tight places

Samsung T260HD 25.5" Widescreen LCD Monitor


This is quite an impressive HDTV/monitor which deserves 5-stars, but is ultimately held back by critical flaws. First, it is a great 26-inch monitor which delivers vibrant colors and deep black levels. There are many input and output ports for a set...

Large screen; 2 HDMI ports; QAM Tuner; features many media ports; Vibrant colors; Decent black levels; High-quality build; supports high resolutions as both an HDTV and a monitor

Superfluous features (SW Upgrade via USB, but unit has no USB port); missing USB; Limited color adjustment options in HDMI mode; Require additional accessories to mount unit; poor quality speakers
