Give yourself room to spread out with Samsung's 245BW. This 24" widescreen monitor can handle resolutions up to 1920x1200 for exceptionally detailed images. In addition to the great resolution it boasts a 5ms response time. Combine the two and you’ll feel like you’re truly in the game.

This monitor isn't just about gaming though. That 5ms response time combined with a brightness rating of 400cd/m2 and a dynamic contrast ratio of 3000:1 means that it’s great for movies too.

Samsung has included two technologies to maximize the viewing experience. MagicBright3 optimizes monitor settings in different modes such as text, internet, movies, games and others so you can get a great view with the touch of a button. MagicColor improves the hue and saturation of colors in two modes, Skin Tone Protection and Full Color Enhancement, so that you get fresh, clear images every time.

What an awesome monitor

Pros: This thing lasted through my diablo 2, WoW, SC2, Diablo 3, and MWO Online phases in life. Its been well over a decade, and way past time to upgrade, but it did a fantastic job and it's now time to move on with a new build. This thing still works like day 1 and i can't even bring myself to sell it due to sentimental value.

Cons: It's really old.

Other Thoughts: Thank you Samsung for this awesome product... hope you still put as much love into all your newer models that i'm now shopping for.

Samsung 245 BW

Pros: Terrific monitor. I wish they still offered it, but then I still don't need to replace the one I have.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I reviewed this monitor on 3-11-08 and my opinion has not changed. I still love it and it still works like the day I first got it.

The stand is outstanding, solid as a rock and far better than most of the monitor stands being offered today. The Brightness rating (400 cd/m2) is still higher than many monitors sold today. The contrast ratio is lower than most monitors today but it still looks great, maybe they changed teh rating systems. The viewing angles are well below today's IPS panels but I honestly never had a complaint about this monitor's viewing angles. It will be a sad day if this monitor ever dies on me.

I just ordered a new ASUS 24-incher on a Black Friday sale here at Newegg for my lady friend and I'll be interested to see how it compares to my old Sammy. The ASUS cost one third what I paid for this one, and some of the specs are better, but I doubt I'll like it any better. And I doubt it will last as long as this one has. I've used this monitor for hours every day for 5 and a half years, what a bargain :-) I feel bad for the 5% or so who got lemons.

245BW------STINKS

Pros: Size

Cons: If I could have given negative stars I would have. The first thing that went wrong was the power button stopped working. Sent it in for repair, pulled out backup monitor. Get it back and it works..happy. Two weeks later I start to get blue lines horizontally all across the screen. Take a screen shot and send to Samsung. They supposedly fix it. I get it back and the lines are still there. They won't fix or replace it since they no longer carry it, even-though I started having issues within 6mos of getting it. So not ever buying Samsung anything ever again!

Other Thoughts: You will regret this purchase. Samsung support is terrible & rude. Product is completely unreliable.

You get what you pay for

Pros: Large screen that is bright enough to blind you...

Cons: The viewing angle is horrible, the color is off, and after a few months of ownership I am now getting streaking. If you are a gamer, graphics designer or any other computer techie then I would advice passing on this monitor. I wanted a good monitor for a good price and that just isn't reality. If you are looking for a monitor that has good viewing angle, has good and accurate colors, and doesn't streak then I would pass on this monitor.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a monitor that has a good viewing angle, has good and accurate colors, and doesn't streak then I would pass on this monitor. I wish I had went with an NEC I was looking at for $400 more.

You get what you pay for and this just isn't worth it.

Samsung 245bw monitor

Pros: This monitor replaced a 6 year old Philips 18.1 inch LCD. Used only for office work, e-mail, internet, word etc. no plans to use it for gaming or watching movies
The Samsung had no dead pixels, great ergonomics, clean and sharp edges. great colors. The ergonomics stand out. So many monitors come with close to no height adjustments.

Cons: TN panel. the limitations of this technology ( viewing angles and 6 bit color) are well documented elsewhere. slight humming noise from the rear. Poor documentation. If you are running windows vista forget the CD and go directly to Samsungs website and download the driver and magic tune software. you will need to do a little bit of digging to get what you need. Although if you are comfortable with internet searches it is no big deal.

Other Thoughts: I did a lot of research prior to making my purchase. This monitor is for a home office environment. No DVD movies or games. the 245bw is a no frills monitor. No speakers, USB and only DVI and VGA inputs. For me this was a plus. I have yet to read a good review of any monitor speaker. Now the humming noise is something that you should be aware of, especially if you are into silent PC computing. This has been reported on other Samsung monitors, such as the 245T. the reports of humming are not confined to samsung monitors. Dell has references on there website. the humming is likely related to the high power demands of 24 inch monitors. One website reviewer reported that 24 inch monitors will pull twice the power that a 22 inch would require. The hum is minor to my ear, but others may find it more of an issue. If you want a completely silent PC be aware of this issue, not just for the 245bw, but for other 24 inch monitors.
