Beautiful Monitor - Marred by poor support and backlight failure
18 December 2009
Summary: The 245T is a beautiful wide gamut 24" monitor with a nice selection of inputs and a very nice adjustable base. It profiles very well using my Eye-One Proof hardware. There is an bit of a medium pitched buzz coming from the monitors electronics, an annoyance, but not a deal breaker. However, Samsungs support for what is ostensibly a professional product is down right abysmal. After 1.5yrs my monitor began to suffer from partial backlight failure.
Summary: Picture quality is great. I had the opportunity to compare it with 2443 BWX and picture quality is way better. But, there is that buzzing noise. It is very loud (my computer makes a lot of noise and my aquarium makes a lot of noise and this buzzing noise was still driving me nuts). 2443 BWX does not make any noise at all. I do not understand why they can make a high end monitor with great picture quality but they cannot solve this stupid buzzing noise problem.
