Samsung 245T review

£709 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Samsung

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Samsung's 245T is a great-looking, thin-bezel 24in widescreen monitor that can swivel, tilt, pivot, and be adjusted for height.

Samsung's 245T is a great-looking, thin-bezel 24in widescreen monitor that can swivel, tilt, pivot, and be adjusted for height.

The Samsung 245T's connectivity options include four USB ports, plus HDMI, VGA, DVI, composite, component, and S-Video ports. The only input missing is a Display Port connection, a linking technology that has gained popularity recently.

Despite the Samsung 245T's £709 price tag, you don't get a built-in Webcam or speakers; but the display does have a picture-in-picture option--a great feature to have, in view of all the input choices.

In our Test Centre evaluations, the Samsung 245T performed well, earning a score of Very Good.

The Samsung 245T is best suited for users who need many connectivity options--because, say, they want to use it for PC work and TV/movie viewing. But the 245T is more expensive than other, similarly specified widescreen LCD displays.

There are currently no price comparisons for this product.
