  • Summary: Purchased this monitor and lasted a few months, filed a warranty claim and only after A LOT of fighting for the seller/manufacturer to honor the warranty, they sent a replacement. The replacement lasted another 6 months. Contacted them again, but they said the original warranty was expired. SO NEVER SAMSUNG PRODUCTS AGAIN.

price not performance

Clive McCarthy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought 9 of these displays for my artwork. The viewing angle (vertically) is inferior to other displays -- there are distinct color change as one changes the vertical viewing angle. The monitor does not reset correctly if an Intel/XP computer powers-up AFTER the monitor (an analog to digital switching problem?)-- ugly yellow striations appear on the display -- re-starting the diplay fixes the problem (I use DPMS to do this).

  • Summary: I have owned this monitor for about 6 months now. I run a dual monitor setup that includes a Samsung 244T which is about a year and a half older. I hear many people talk about the difference of the viewing angle between the two and how it makes a huge difference and that they have to move their heads around to make sure they are getting the hot spot on the screen with the 245BW.

Samsung SyncMaster 245BW 24-inch LCD Monitor

  • Summary: I rotated the monitor, and black lines went away but for how long ? Not acceptable for a brand like Samsung. Monitor does have 3 year warranty, but from what I read on here, it's gonna take me a while to get a replacement and even then i might to need to replace it. Stay away from it, go buy a Dell monitor. My 18 inches flat Dell monitor from October 2002 is still working flawlessly. Even my Digiview from early 90's never had dark grey lines... I'll post an update soon.

Samsung SyncMaster 245BW 24-inch LCD Monitor

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I really do like this monitor. The size and resolution (WUXGA) are perfect if you do a lot of programming or any other activity that requires a large number of open windows. Color reproduction seems fine and it arrived with no dead pixels. I've seen complaints about the viewing angle, but haven't had much of a problem with it. If you need a wider viewing angle, get something more expensive than a TN panel.

  • Summary: I had this monitor 6 months and it went dead. I called Samsung and they said no problem it is within my 3 year warranty they will send a replacement. Nearly a month later, I still don't have one. I have been getting the total run around from Samsung. They keep telling me they are backlogged, just what I want to hear when being without the use of my computer for a month.

  • Summary: JUMPING FROM A JUMBO CRT TO THIS FLAT WIDE SCREEN OF COURSE WAS 1 LIGHT YEAR OF PROGRESS BUT THE QUALITY OF THIS MONITOR HAS ALLOWED ME TO ACCOMPLISH MORE TASKS THAN BEFORE AND IT CONSUMES LESS SPACE THAN MY LAST MONITOR. THE PICTURE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT AND YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF ANALOG OR DIGITAL. THE PRICE ROCKS OUT!! BUY IT FROM AMAZON THOUGH!!!!!!

Pleased with my purchase

F. Ubertini "moviemad", Amazon

  • Summary: Primarily, I bought this widescreen monitor in order to be able to watch European DVDs, and I'm very pleased with its performance for that and the other more utilitarian reasons for such a purchase. Samsung is a great brand that gives value for the money. For the record, I checked several authoritative sources of recommendations before I placed my order.
