Summary: We found nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung SyncMaster 204T, a 20-inch LCD with an attractive design, decent image quality, and useful software, but other monitors offer more features for the price.
Pros: Above-average image quality; attractive design; solid base with great degree of adjustability.
Cons: No speakers, headphone jack, or extra USB ports; height adjustment stiff; slow pixel-response time; less than ideal DVD performance.
Summary: The performance of the 204T is right on par with the other Samsung monitors we've reviewed in the past. The display quality is quite good thanks in part to the high contrast ratio. During gaming tests we observed no visible ghosting, something that used to be a problem for earlier LCD monitors. We did however notice that there was a dead pixel on our 204T, located in the middle right-half section of the screen.
Conclusion: Avec le Syncmaster 204T, Samsung signe un moniteur LCD polyvalent. Dépourvu de défaut rédhibitoire, cet écran de 20 pouces peut afficher correctement la plupart des documents textes et photos.
