>> Hi this is Eric Franklin from cnet.com and today we're lookin' at this guy right here. Now, you may be wondering, is it a TV or is a monitor? Well, you're probably not wondering that, but it is in fact a TV disguised as a monitor. For one the OSD menu design is taken directly from the menus using Samsung's HDTV's, it has tons of connection options including HDMI ports and a ATSC and QAM tuner, all of which face toward the back not down as most monitors do, and it has a remote control, so it's pretty much a TV. The display has a low brightness and its color reproduction in gains was unimpressive, but it produced accurate flesh-tones and sharp clarity in DVD's. It also reproduced tech sharply making it good for normal office use. With all those connection options the TV tuner and its great performance in movies, the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD is a steal at $499.00. While it doesn't have quite the overall performance of the Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP, which costs $689.00, its lower price, connection options, and features make up for that. The $482.00 HPW24H is a little bit cheaper but it skimps on video connections and features. For movie watchers, TV addicts, and those who simply want a large productivity display we easily recommend the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD. Still -- 24 inches is 24 inches, so if connection options aren't important to you but price is, check out the $385.00 V7 d24w33 and the $399.00 BenQ v2400w, both are very good displays for less than $400.00. Once again this is Eric Franklin; this has been the first look at the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD. ^M00:01:47 [ Music ]
The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 is a well-designed monitor with good performance that skimps on connection options.
Take a First Look at the Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM, an LCD monitor that can rotate a full 360 degrees, is height adjustable, and is loaded with connection options and features.
The Samsung SyncMaster XL2370 looks great, performs well, and hits at just the right price point.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD is a great choice for those looking for a 23-inch monitor-HDTV combo.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD is a great choice for those looking for a 27-inch monitor-HDTV combo.
It skimps on a few features, but the Samsung SyncMaster P2370 is a stylish, low-priced 23-incher with very good performance.
The Samsung SyncMaster B2330HD takes some calibrating before it performs well, but is low priced and offers lots of features.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2770FH's disappointing performance and lack of features make it a distant choice among 27-inchers.
The Samsung SyncMaster 940BF delivers a clear, vivid picture for games and DVDs, but overall we found it average; other monitors offer more adjustability and features and better performance for less.
With more features and better movie performance, the Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 improves--in most areas--on one of the best monitors we've ever reviewed.
Samsung SyncMaster T240HD Review
The good: Many connection options; accurate flesh tones and sharp clarity in DVDs; ATSC/QAM tuner; sharp fonts.
The bad: Drab colors in games; low brightness; bad OSD button placement.
The bottom line: With tons of connection options, great performance, and useful features like an HDTV tuner, the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD display is an excellent bargain.
