Everthing this monitor is capable of doing, it does it beyound the advert.
8 July 2011
Summary: This monitor is great. I bought one in 2009 and just bought another in 2011. Color is superb, resolution, HD everything this monitor is capable of doing, it does it better than advertised. Iv been an owner of the 245T for 2 years and have never had any trouble out of it.
Summary: All around an excellent product. Great picture, great build, great price. Could not be happier. 24 inches is an excellent size, big enough for any needs, yet small enough to fit easily on my desk.
Summary: My wife gave me this for Valentine's Day, 2009, and I gave her a couple of necklaces. I can't wear the monitor, but it gets lots of comments when people see it. I did a lot of research before I decided on this one. A cow-orker told me I couldn't go wrong with Samsung. I knew I wanted a wide viewing angle, because I wanted to be able to sit close to the screen and still see everything. I have an X-Rite Display calibrator, but haven't calibrated it, yet.
Summary: I've had this monitor in service for almost a year. I was pretty much sold on Samsung after my very positive experience with one of their LCD televisions. Although I don't have a real calibration tool, I was able to get quite satisfactory color calibration using the built-in tools on my Mac. I get dependable color from camera all the way through to printer, largely a credit to the monitor itself. I do a lot of photo editing, and I appreciate the wide color gamut.
I love this monitor and I should have bought it from the beginning

Summary: I ordered this monitor after I returned my previous monitor, the Samsung 2443BWT, because its viewing angle was too narrow. This finally is a monitor that I am happy with. Very happy with. I can pivot it, which is important because most of the photos I take are in portrait mode (I take pictures of models mostly). It has the highest resolution my Mac Mini can display (1920 x 1200). It is very bright and sharp. It has a matte screen.
Summary: I have been using it for a month and I am very happy with this monitor: - no dead or stuck pixels, - good, even backlight, - sharp text, great colors, and a wide angle of viewing (S-PVA !) - Far Cry looks and plays great in full resolution, - no buzzing sound that some others reported, - 1920 x 1200 is a lot of screen space comparing to my old 17" LCD (Samsung 173P), - USB hub is built-in, I have two computers connected (DVI and analog).
Very impressed - but I got a bad one the first time

Summary: I did a lot of searching for a 24" 1920x1200 LCD monitor. I read hundreds of reviews from amazon and other retailer sites like new-egg. Since I was not able to see most of these in the store, I had to go on reviews. Well, thankfully, this monitor is exactly as I expected. It is quick (I do play a few games like Crysis) and sharp and the colors are very nice.
Summary: See Maximum PC, which rates this monitor over the Dell 2408. I read all the reviews, both professional magazines, web, personal, etc. All complained that the default settings, as delivered, were excessive, and the monitor was only useful after calibrating it. Obviously Samsung read the same reviews, and they now deliver with moderate settings. I checked my delivered monitor against their suggested, altered settings, and they are very close.
Summary: I have been living with the Samsung 245T for 10 months. Other than the fact that the screen gives off more heat than the Samsumg 204B (1600x1200) and the likes of the Ilyama 82403WS the image has the edge of the others. I have a Sony RDR HXD 970 plugged into the HMDI and S-video. I can use this full screen or PIP whilst using the computer on the DVI socket. Although considerable more than the 245B I still feel it has proved worth while for the greater flexibility.
Summary: I was using a Dell 24" I bought a few years back, and it was nice, but always felt a bit lackluster to me. I use a Nividia 9800 GTX graphics card, and when I read of the quality of color and contrast of this monitor, I asked around to people I know in the business. Every one raved about it. At this low price, I took a chance, and as soon as I turned it on, I knew I made the right choice. This monitor blows the Dell 24" away. The color and detail is just off the charts.
