Excerpt: I've had the Samsung T260HD for about a year, and it's still the best monitor/tv I've owned. I use it in a dual view setup, and it's my primary computer/gaming monitor. As a PC monitor, it functions quite well. 1920x1200 resolution looks absolutely gorgeous on a 26" screen. It's becoming harder and harder to find x1200 on PC monitors. The viewing angles are decent, and I've never had an issue with washed out colors.
Excerpt: I love the Samsung T260 HD. It doubles as a computer monitor and it has great HD reception. It has the digital converter installed into it so you don't need a converter box if you don't have cable. It looks very well up against other furniture.
Summary: This is a great monitor. I have two on my pc and work with both screens and it really makes my job easier. When I am not using the second monitor for work I can switch it over to TV and have the best of both worlds.
Summary: Wow. What a great deal on a refurb monitor. A friend of mine had this monitor and I've always really liked it but they are so hard to find. I hate the current trend of monitors having 1920 x 1080 instead of the much more useful 1920 x 1200 resolution. For developers like me, the difference is enormous. Also, this one doubles as a tv. My only regret is that I didn't buy two of them when I had the chance. Very quick delivery also.
Summary: Apparently, this monitor has been discontinued. That's too bad, since it has ideal multiple use for students and home offices as a desktop computer monitor, a home theater viewer, and a TV set. It sure is swell as a high resolution computer monitor, allowing viewing of multiple windows that don't seem so crowded. Comcast attached its tuner/dvr cable box to it, so I have lots of content, including HD quality programs increasingly available.
Summary: I was forced to replace my computer in January of 2009 due to hardware failure. Since the machine was bought in 1999 I figured that repair was not a viable option when comparing cost of parts with cost of a new machine. A new computer with a quad-core processor, 8GB of ram, Vista 64-bit OS and NVIDIA GeForce9500 GS video card warranted something a bit more elaborate than a 19-inch monitor, so I did a lot of research before deciding on the Samsung T260HD.
Summary: I have used this monitor for several months now. I run it at 1920x1200 resolution and find that text is sharp and easy to read even when using small fonts. If someone is interested in high-end graphics where flawless color is important, they might want to consider something else. There is some variation in color depending on the viewing angle. However, I do not detect the banding effects that lower-end monitors exhibit when there is a large field of shaded monochrome.
Summary: got it for my dorm. I didn't want anything too big since my dorm is kinda small. It serves as one of two monitors for my computer. great for gaming and watching TV. If my room were bigger, i would have gotten a bigger TV but this is PERFECT for what i need.
Summary: While shopping around for a monitor, I had a rather specific need: a monitor that would be able to support both 1600x1200 resolution (4:3) and typical wide-screen without scaling image distortion (in other words, true-scaling or 1:1 for both cases). My research took me to the Samsung T260HD. I've owned it for 7 months and I just love it.
Summary: When I first picked up the box containing my new T260HD, it was big and heavier than I expected. I hauled it into my room and started unpacking right away. The first thing I pulled out were the many accessories, including: D-sub/VGA, DVI and power cables, remote, cleaning cloth, and driver/manual CD. No HDMI cable, but it came with what I needed to connect it to my PC. Best part of unpacking was finally seeing the stunning beauty of my new monitor.
