Summary: I always thought that any LCD monitor with a screen size of 17" - 20" and a decent resolution of 1280x1024 is enough for today's applications. Well, for most cases ... it is enough. But having said that, I'm actually wrote this review using my notebook with a 12.1" widescreen running a resolution of 1280x800! It's amazing how times have changed and how people's expectations and demands have excelled.
Pros: - A massive 24" screen, - Max. resolution of 1920x1200, - Detachable speaker module with stereo sound, - 5ms response time, - Support HDCP, - DVI, D-Sub connectors
Conclusion: The retail package is typical for a consumer brand, and is little more than a box that displays minimal content or images of the product within and could easily be confused with other SAMSUNG products. The included MagicBright and MagicTuneTM software make out of the box calibration simple, and gives end-users an easy to use interface controlled from within Windows.
Pros: Affordable 24" Widescreen, MagicTuneTM and MagicBright Software allow calibration control within Windows, Accurate Colors, 4-way Adjustable Stand (5-way including disabled pivot feature), No-Frills, Attractive Cabinet & Stand, Zero Dead Pixels, 3-year Manufacturer's Warranty
Excerpt: Samsung's SyncMaster 245B is a large 24in widescreen monitor, but it has an elegant appearance that makes it seem less obtrusive than many smaller displays. Samsung has achieved this by styling the entire display in a discrete matt black and using a slender, but sturdy, stand and a thin 15mm bezel. There are D-sub and DVI inputs. The DVI connector is HDCP-compliant, so you can watch content from an HD DVD or Blu-ray player.
