The best and last real quality monitor that Samsung ever made. Snap it up!
6 March 2013
Summary: I Have a couple of these - one purchased new, maybe four or five years ago, another I bought used on ebay. These monitors are terrific for CAD work or if you just plain need a huge desktop or any other high-res purpose. The high resolution modes provide substantially more workspace real estate than more current 1080p standard monitors can provide.
Summary: Great Monitor, Great seller...had to slightly overpay for a near perfect low use version but that is my responsibility :) Have 3 of these hooked up to a 5870 Crossfire setup and it is fantastic.
The Samsung 245BW is a beautiful high resolution monitor

Summary: I have had a Samsung 245BW for the past 3-4 years and it's an amazing monitor. Samsung released updates to it that added rounded edges and an awkward base that you can't rest things on. Opting out of getting a newer version, I got a second and the two next to eachother are beautiful and striking. Neither of the monitors I received has dead pixels or other visual artifacts.
Summary: Currently I'm using two of these SyncMaster 245BW monitors with my PC. They have kept an excellent picture over the past 4 years of use. Even while gaming, there is no sign of ghosting or artifacting. I just purchased a third one of these for my AMD Eyefinity setup. Can't wait, 5760x1200 FTW! FYI- The new version of this monitor (2443BWT) is much less appealing.
Summary: I'm using two Syncmasters 245bw currently in a dual head setup on a contemporary UNIX distribution. With this monitors max resolution of 1920x1200 @ 24bit a dual screen setup can be a quite astonishing panoramic experience. After comparing quite a lot of monitors of different brands in multiple stores i've decided to use Samsungs syncmasters because for the high picture quality they offer. They fall in the 'affordable but excellent quality' category.
Great monitor, be careful of the VESA mounting hardware
7 April 2010
Summary: This is a great monitor, but seems to use a larger VESA mounting pattern than typical monitors - more what you might expect from a wall-mounted TV. This is not an issue when using the stand of course, but be aware that you might have to buy adapters, etc to use a wall mount or multiple monitor mount.
Summary: The Samsung SyncMaster™ 245BW 24 inch LCD Monitor is the best monitor I've ever had the pleasure to own. I own two of them now and the quality is second to none. Of all the incredible features of this monitor the one I think prospective buys might be interested in is the fact that this monitor tilts and swivels but most importantly is is adjustable up to about 8 inches up and down.
Summary: This otherwise great monitor has what I consider to be a flaw, though it is probably by design. This was not Samsung's top of the line monitor, it was a little bit cheaper. I bought it brand new when it was the going thing and paid around $500 for it. It is indeed crystal clear, with bright contrast and nice colors. And so it deserves more than 3 stars for all the other good qualities, but the issue has just become a sore spot that won't go away.
Review of Samsung SyncMaster™ 245BW 24 inch LCD Monitor
10 December 2009
Summary: LCD monitors now are becoming very prevalent on desktops systems everywhere as prices drop and users discover the joys of the crisp and vivid pictures around. Samsung is arguably the leader in LCD display technology. Samsung SyncMaster™ 245BW 24 inch LCD comes with a three year warranty which covers all aspects of the product. Fine image quality and color accuracy, highly adjustable. Imagine having more room to spread out.
Summary: Fantastic display Excellent adjustability Great build quality Samsung's secret for 224BW: after detaching stand from body by unscrewing four screws, you will find a black screw hidden inside the stand that prevents it from rotating. Just remove that screw, attach the stand back onto the body, you got free portrait mode!
