Summary: Great pic and size. Stand has a serious problem. Cannot adjust the tilt without huge exertion of force. Seems as if it will break. Took it apart and added white lithium to the joints, which did not help. Viewing angle is a bit limited too. If you're a little too high up, everything gets much whiter. All in all, great monitor though.
Summary: Just received my T240 and got it setup and calibrated. It has an amazing, vibrant picture for everything except dark scenes. As some other noted...it does have some backlight bleedthrough around the edges. Far more than I would have expected for a monitor of this price. I am pretty disappointed by that so I may not watch many movies on it. However it is amazing as a computer monitor for work or web surfing. The finish of this monitor is great and the look is great.
Summary: PROS: 1.high quality build 2.beautiful "touch of color" exterior 3.hdmi connector 4.great onscreen color saturation 5.whole screen and stand easily turns side to side for optimum viewing 6.tilting screen up and down 7.solid stand 8.easy plug and play 9.many video options 10.vga, usb, and dvi cables included 11.great 3D gaming monitor with a low refresh rate 12.manufacturer's 3 years warranty a big plus 13.bigger is definitely better CONS: 1.hard to see menu buttons on...
Great midrange monitor - Vibrant, crisp, brilliant picture.

Summary: Up until now, I've been gaming on an eMachine 19 inch LCD monitor, which I've been using for over 2 years. And to be honest, it's been a faithful little monitor with no dead pixels all this time. However, I got tired of the 1440 x 900 resolution, which required scrolling down a lot to view web pages. So, I bought the Samsung T240, which boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution on a comparitively monstrous 24" screen. Oh my, what a difference! I've been missing out on a lot.
Summary: Good monitor with a couple of issues. Colors are very bright and graphics are clear and distinct. I was lucky and don't have any dead or stuck pixels. Love the 1920x1200 resolution. I wouldn't go with anything less because then you lose too much screen height in my opinion. The case looks good. I can only see the red in very bright light, it looks black in normal use lighting. The plastic on the back of the case seems to be very thin, and feels kind of cheap.
Summary: I bought this screen as my first big resolution monitor (1920x1080) to go on my editing PC. It is a great screen for viewing of movies and general use, but not really when you're using the screen for colour critical photography. I used my X-Rite with the easy to use menu system to pull the default contrast, brightness and RGB settings close to accurate and then the x-rite did a full sweep to get it tunes in 100%. And here's where there's a problem.
Summary: I purchased this monitor for my home PC, primarily for gaming, DVDs and general computing. The monitor succeeds in all areas. The screen is bright and generally has good picture quality. Response time for gaming is good, however if you don't run the monitor in its native resolution, there is noticeable blurring.
Summary: First of all, this is an enormous monitor. I went from a 19" to 24" inches and the difference is incredible. The size is perfect and plenty of connections so hooking up the blu-ray should not be a problem with the HDMI. I brought this monitor for playing games with my PS3 and the price was a real bargain. The visual was astonishing and contrast was superb. The only downside to this monitor I found was the viewing angle.

Conclusion: A beautiful monitor with brilliant clarity. It allows you to connect with just about any type of video output: Digital, Analogue or HDMI, even all 3, if you want. Just change the source with a light touch of a button on the right side. It also has USB in/out connections, Digital Out (if you want to use it as a TV monitor) for audio and standard audio out, but no built in speakers.
