Summary: Pro's - Price/performance ratio, low glare level, very little flicker even at low brightness levels, anti-glare treatment doesn't distort image, wide viewing angle (vertical and horizontal), relatively consistent contrast across a wide range of brightness levels, size/resolution works well with Windows set at 120dpi and ClearType enabled, but still tolerable when applications (like Web browsers) do not (or cannot) utilize the 120dpi fonts.
Summary: the only glitch was software ...the monitor does not magically display the pictures or desktop when you rotate the monitor you must right click and select. The display is perfect. Worth the little extra money. It's value and quality far above the myriad of all the others. As a photographer I can really evaluate my work. If I need photoshop it's now a pleasure to work with.
Summary: Two days ago my new Samsung SyncMaster 214T arrive. It's 21", 1600x1200. It's gorgeous -- bright, crisp, great colors. Using it connected via DVI to a ThinkPad T43. 1600x1200 on 21" is easy on the eyes, but still a lot of room to spread out. Also, I've noticed that 1600x1200 isn't excessively greater than 1400x1050; it's doesn't cause whiplash moving back and forth.
Summary: Like one of the earlier reviewers, this is my first LCD monitor and I couldn't be more pleased. My old monitor was a Mitsubishi flat-screen Diamond 200, and while I'm still satisified with it, the 214T simply blows it away. At 21.3" the display seems gigantic and the picture and quality have to be seen, to be believed. I'm running it under Linux, using an Nvidia GeForce 6200 and its drawing time is incredibly fast.
Summary: The picture on the SyncMaster series seems to only get better and better. More contrast than earlier models, but still no noticeable eyestrain. The reduced border around the screen allows a 21-inch model to sit on a desktop requiring not much more visual space than older 18-inch models. The black border color seems to be more restful to the eye than the silver.
Summary: I have owned the previous version of this monitor, the 213T, for about 6 months and was completely happy with it. The only problem was the refresh rate was a bit slow (I think at around 16ms). But it wasn't so much of a problem since I didn't watch much video or play games on it. Otherwise the color and viewing angles were fine. For my other computer's monitor I had a Viewsonic 20 inch LCD, which I purchased because I needed a fast refresh so I can play games.
Summary: I've always been a CRT user, thinking that no LCD monitor could give the brightness and clearity that CRT monitors offered, till I took the plung and bought the Samsung 214t, with 21.3 inches of veiwing area and I'm really blown away by this product. From the ease of just taking it out of the box and plugging it in and having it start working with no install problems, to haveing it automaticaly adjusting to the correct resolution for either normal surfing, to flying with...
Monitor im 4:3-Format mit tadelloser Bildqualität und guter Ausstattung
5 February 2014
Summary: Leider gibt es aktuell fast nur noch Monitore im Breitformat (16:9 oder 16:10) zu kaufen. Diese Formate finde ich zum Arbeiten aber unpraktisch, deshalb habe ich länger nach einem 4:3-Monitor gesucht, der größer als 19" ist und eine gute Bildqualität besitzt (also kein TN-Display). Da der EIZO S2100 doch noch um einiges teurer war, bin ich dann beim Samsung SyncMaster 214T gelandet.
