Summary: My Samsung 245T had a similar problem to that with a Dell 2408WFP that I had bought and returned: The Brightness gradient decreased noticeably from left-to-right. The left 1/4 of the screen was noticeably brighter than the other portions and there was considerable backlight leakage around those edges. I had to turn the Brightness down to 10-15 to get a standard B/W brightness gradient test pattern adjusted and the Contrast down to 40-50.

Summary: I got the monitor on Friday. When I hooked it up to an extra HDDVD player using HDMI the moniter could see that the interface was being used but could not see the HDDVD player when I changed the source. The same thing occured when I used the component video conection. Anyone else have this problem and is there a work around? Thanks.
Summary: I bought this thinking "okay, it's good enough and the reviews say it's quite solid so I'll take a chance and save $400." I received it and tried to love this monitor but even after many tweaks and 4 different calibrations with an X-rite i1 hardware calibrator, the results weren't good enough. The reds are the main problem - boosted to the point of being harsh and pink with bleeding.
A Very Nice Monitor - but overpriced unless you need multiple inputs or wide viewing angles

Summary: Warning: When considering any widescreen monitor be sure your computer's video card supports the monitor's "native" resolution. The native resolution is the one setting that produces the best display on any given monitor. All flat screen monitors have a native resolution. In the case of this monitor you need a setting of 1920 X 1200. See your computer's control panel/display settings. Be aware this is a tough requirement and many computers can not support it.
Summary: The 245T emits a constant buzzing sound from the upper back part of the screen. In a silent room, you can definitely hear it. Turning on MPA helps, but MPA makes the screen seem to vibrate. I returned the original 245T that I bought to Samsung under warranty. They sent another one that had the *same exact problem*. I returned that one, and they sent another. *Same exact problem.* That's 3 brand new Samsung 245T's with the same issue.
