1 out of 5 eggsFailed at day 32

Pros: Looked pretty good while it was working. Slight buzz from the top was not noticeable over the noise of my computer.

Cons: Infant mortality and the obvious lack of image. It gave some hints that it was about to die leading up to the failure: The image would flick off and then come back on again. This occurred over a period of about two days. Samsung diagnosed it over the phone as "failed."

Other Thoughts: I was in Canada at the time and Samsung would not accept a warranty return because of that. I called NewEgg and even though it was two days past the 30 day limit, they made an exception and replaced it for me. I can't say enough great things about this company's support. They sure go the extra mile for their customers. I wish Samsung had offered to honor their warranty, but they're an international company so it was pretty hard for me to understand why they wouldn't.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this monitor!

Pros: Shiny. Displays static content at the advertised resolution. Just don't ask anything to move on your screen.

Cons: Does not work with DVD playback or with games as delivered. The single-link DVI cable provided with the monitor is not sufficient to deliver 1920x1200 multimedia content.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and it was a mistake. I now own four high-dollar "professional" Samsung displays and once appreciated them for their quality (no more). Delivering this monitor with a single link DVI cable was a major mistake on Samsung's part and they're completely unwilling to remedy that error. While it is a nice monitor, it is not worth paying this kind of money for when the support you get from the company amounts to "so sad, too bad." I spoke with their executive assistance center. Jasmine understood that not providing me with the Dual-link cables that would allow me to use the monitor as intended and that denying my request would severely degrade my opinion of the Samsung brand and yet she insisted that she would not provide me with cables. She then had the nerve to ask me if there was anything else she could assist me with after not having assisted me in the first place. That's not customer support, that's customer irritation. So, Samsung gets one egg and a big raspberry!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat S-PVA monitor/HD TV!

Pros: Great monitor, great picture and tons of inputs. S-PVA panel looks great from any angle. I hooked it up to my Mac Pro and ready to go! When I'm working on designing a poster I rotate it 90 degrees and work in a horizontal configuration, it is awesome! The stand is solid and raises up and down a good amount, and when I'm rotating the 90 I don't need to move any cables they all stay chill. It's quite bright, I have it set fairly low all of the time. I also have my Nintendo 64 hooked up, and could easily connect more computers and/or any kind of HDCP Blu Ray player, XBox etc. system. I'm psyched this is basically a HD TV without speakers! Lots of menu options for color, brightness, etc. PIP but only with the analog inputs.

Cons: Fairly loud buzz (compared to... my laptop? Can't compare to other LCDs) but I never notice because I have my windows open, music playing, my Mac Pro running, and plenty of other sounds to push it into the subconscious levels. When its quiet at night and I turn my computer off I can hear the screen buzz for a second before it puts itself to sleep. It also seems quite warm but its a big boy doing lots of work!

Other Thoughts: My first LCD monitor purchase. Did not test other monitors in person, I live on an island! Extensive internet research showed this to be one of the best S-PVA panels around. Got this for my new Mac Pro (Nehalem Early 2009) because while the Apple monitors are nice I don't need absolute perfection in color reproduction and for a lower price I get tons of inputs and I don't have to be completely owned by Apple.

2 out of 5 eggsCame With Defects Out of the Box

Pros: No buzz at all. No bad pixels. Good viewing angles. Very exstensive color adjustments through MagicTune and the front panel controls. Comes pre-assembled with tabletop mount.

Cons: Very bad image quality. Left 1/4 of screen brighter than rest of display. I couldn't adjust the image to give proper brightness/contrast across the screen. Noticeable backlight bleed around the problem area.

The brightness problem was very similar to that that I saw on a recent Dell 2408WFP.

Other Thoughts: First LCD monitor I have come across where you can't adjust the Sharpness when using the DVI input but the focus was very good.

Samsung Tech Support said it must have been a defective montior, either have it repaired or send it back for exchange.

4 out of 5 eggsnice, but with a couple of possible dealbreakers

Pros: Great color and brightness -- if anything, this monitor is TOO bright and needs to be toned down a bit. Not a single dead pixel on my panel, even after a year. Deep blacks and minimal backlight bleeding. Viewing angle is pretty close to 180 degrees -- even looking at this at the most oblique angle possible, it's still perfectly visible with only a modest decrease in brightness. Great way to watch HD video.

Cons: Here's where the catch comes in. As other reviews have mentioned, the transformer on this thing makes a very noticeable buzzing sound when MPA is off. With MPA on , the buzzing is greatly reduced but still audible -- plus, MPA adds a slight flicker! Neither the flicker or the buzz (pick one!) is terrible, certainly not any worse than your usual CRT monitor, but pretty iffy on a monitor as expensive as this one.

There is also some overdrive ghosting that is sometimes visible, especially on black-against-gray scenes. This is almost never noticeable with video sources, but sometimes is when the screen updates more often, as in games.

Speaking of games -- there is a 50ms or so input lag on this thing. Not a dealbreaker for me since I don't do twitchy competitive online games much, but it does make a slight difference.

Other Thoughts: I got this mainly because I'm an amateur photographer who wanted a decent monitor to edit my pics on, along with other graphics nonsense. For this use it works really well. Hardcore gamers might want to look elsewhere, but as a more casual gamer myself, the input lag is manageable (and not really noticeable, to me at least) for those who want more from their monitor than twitchy response rates.

4 out of 5 eggsCrisp and buzz free

Pros: Portrait mode - unlike most LCDs, this one can be rotated and still have a great viewing angle. This is my work monitor - I do software development. The amount of real estate you get to view the code is awesome.
Display is top notch. Good colors, blacks, bright whites etc.
The stand is great. Nice cable management. Useful USB hub.
I like Samsung's buttons, esp the one button push to change various modes.

Cons: Pricy.
Did not buy from newegg due to their lousy LCD return policy. Not being able to return this pricey a product is a deal breaker for me.
Slower turn on time (lags about 3 secs behind my 204B).
Not that much better than a TN panel for causal users.

Other Thoughts: Compared side by side with a Samsung 204B (21" which runs 1600x1200 opposed to the 245T's 1900x1200). The differences are slight. The 245T's whites are whiter, blacks blacker, and colors more vibrant, esp with magic bright. However, for causal use and gaming, IMO the improved quality of the 245T is not worth the $.
Unless you need
1) to rotate the display to portrait mode
2) a more accurate color representation
3) top of the line gear for the sake of having it
save your money

FYI, my unit does not buzz. It does smell a bit like hot electronics, but you have to get your nose right next to it. Back gets a lot hotter than the 204B.

5 out of 5 eggsLCDelicious

Pros: Luscious, saturated colors (actually, a bit *too* saturated for my taste).
Beautiful design.
ZERO dead pixels (checked using edge-to-edge #FFFFFF image).
Minimal fall-off at the corners.
No color-bleed.
90° rotation is amazing for portrait and page editing.
OSD is exhaustive in its scope (with one exception; see below).
S-PVA panel technology used (versus TN) so you have 8-bit color versus simulated with 6-bit.
Superb tonal range and reproduction (e.g., I see each step of a 20-step grayscale perfectly).
Brilliant, even blazing, whites.
Black-hole blacks.
Multiple inputs (selectable with Source button).
Auto-selects inputs based on which is active (eliminates the need for an outboard video switch).
Stand is stable and the right height for me and my desk (other reviewers have not liked it... I'm not sure what they're talking about, honestly).

Cons: Minimal, very quiet buzz when first firing up (can't hear it if there's any fan noise, conversation, etc.).
Generates a surprising amount of heat off the front (I'm used to a CRT radiating off the top in back).
OSD does not offer horizontal sync or convergence controls (I know... there's no such thing as convergence problems with discrete technologies, but something like that is needed for one laptop's video card).
Drivers needed for some cards.
The MagicRotation and MagicTune software did not work on either XP Pro or XP.64, and in both cases necessitated a complete reinstall of the video drivers... you've been warned.
Content auto-sensing is something of a gimmick; adjust your color manually for best results.
Why include speakers at all?
Supplied cables are too short (e.g., VGA is 5 feet) so add to your order if you know you need a male-male that's longer.

Other Thoughts: Worth the higher price. I'm happy I splurged. When rotating, as others have noted, you need to be careful to not bump the corner on your desk. This isn't a design flaw, but just something to be cognizant of. Cable sockets could have been put on detented swivels to allow for greater flexibility in mounting or hiding.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth It- Beautiful + Functional

Pros: Beautiful image- PC, videos, gaming- all top-notch. Very bright, great contrast for LCD, extremely white- much better than my other Samsungs and my office LCDs. *NO* angle shifting - PVA panel is the best.
Games are *unbelievable* on this screen. Videos at hi-def are gorgeous. Many inputs.
Stand works MUCH better than cheaper ones, tilt and height stay where you put them. Base rotates smoothly, portrait rotate a plus (but see Cons about cables). Blue power LED is not over bright, just right. Bezel is glossy black, looks sharp. Also narrow bezel, works well w/multi-monitor setup.
Warranty is very good.

Cons: Go into menu, set it to WIDE mode or else you'll get black bars at top + bottom even at 1920x1200.
Menu is clunky, typical for Samsung. One stuck pixel, light gray- not too distracting. MPA mode just causes flicker, doesn't help anything. USB ports are on upper left side, cables + flash drives stick out behind left side of bezel. Gets pretty warm after a few hours.
No cable organizer; cables pull when turning such a large screen. Monitor is deeper than others, panel part is about 3.5" deep, almost 6.5" from front of panel to back of vertical stand, over 10.25" for round base of stand.
Games will push your graphics card and CPU- needs 9800GT w/512 or better, I'm using a 9800GTX+@740mhz. My X2 @ 2.4ghz w/3gb is pushed hard in games at 1920x1200.

Other Thoughts: I'm VERY happy with this screen. Best monitor short of going to the $1800+ professional panels. It also looks great without being flashy.
GRID Racing looks photo-realistic, NFS Undercover is unbelievably good, but could still use a GX280 for highest detail.
No buzzing, even in a silent room.
If you look at D*** UltraSh***, it uses the same PVA panel but the stand isn't as good.
I went to physically look at many 24" panels, this is the best.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No dead pixels or loud humming on mine. Huge amount of screen real-estate. Excellent color depth and viewing angle. Definitely a higher end LCD, with it being an S-PVA panel. Can be raised or lowered through a wide range. Can be rotated into portrait mode.

Cons: Buttons on front a bit flimsy, but nothing terrible. Bezel gets smudged easily. Somewhat pricey. Won't give massages.

Other Thoughts: Was a little worried about making the switch to LCD, but I was pleasantly surprised. Gaming seems to work well. Thoroughly read up on this monitor since I game and needed it to be responsive. Unless you are a professional gamer, this should be fine. Tested with FIFA09 and COD:WaW. Have not yet tested with CS or L4D though.
