Great monitor, until manufacturing decisions catch up with it.

C. Pilson, Amazon

  • Summary: The monitor itself: 5 stars. The warranty: 5 stars. Customer service: -1 star. I purchased a pair of SynchMaster 204B 20" monitors a few years ago. I am leaving this review here, as it will help address some of the flickering/brightness issues that other users are experiencing. THE BAD: My monitor started to flicker and would sometimes take a few "tries" to turn on. If this were a CRT, I'd have said it was a flyback issue--this is the nature and extent of the flickering.

"I totally disagree..."

  • Pros: It's been a great monitor for nearly 3 years, I've come across the same issue as most of you. The difference is I know that a blinking screen means a 1.99 at radioshak and about 30 mins of my time. VIOLA! new monitor!
  • Cons: Samsun needs to stop using SAMXON cap's, thats the only con. the SAMXON Inverter filter capacitor is simply to big for the job its doing. and over time it wears out other components.

Mostly Good

  • Summary: Bought two of these. One works very well and is worth the price. The other monitor would randomly go dim and then bright. No adjustment would correct the problem, so it was returned.

  • Excerpt: Il Samsung SyncMaster 204TS è un monitor LCD con una diagonale di ben 20,4 pollici con una risoluzione massima di 1.600x1.200 pixel... quindi più spazio per le vostre icone sul desktop! La luminosità è nella norma così come il contrasto di 700:1. La ...

Keine schlechte Wahl

  • Summary: Ich habe den Monitor vor ungefähr einen Monat gekauft, zusätzlich habe ich mir eine DVI fähige Grafikkarte zugelegt, um die Vorteile der digitalen Eingänge zu nutzen über die der SyncMaster 240Ts verfügt. Natürlich kann man auch den analogen Eingang benutzen, die Qualität des Bildes ist dann jedoch nicht ganz so scharf, was für den non-professionellen Nutzer aber keinen wirklichen Nachteil darstellt.
  • Pros: Gut geeignet zum surfen im Internet; Hell; Großes Display
  • Cons: Meiner Meinung nach sind die Farben und Farbabstufungen für professionelle Gestaltungen nicht genau genug
