Top Customer Reviews
The resolution is very good (1920x1200) and it's very attractive and stylish.
There is no vertical height adjustment (typical for a TV but important to have in a monitor). Your desk / monitor stand had better be at just the right height. The edge is highly reflective and creates bad glare around the picture in a work environment. The adjustments are typical TV adjustments but not monitor adjustments (there is no horizontal or vertical position adjustment).
I've used Samsung monitors for many years and recommend them to my clients. When I finally purchased a HDTV I bought a 46" Samsung which is excellent. The T240HD makes a great HDTV but I regret purchasing it as a computer monitor.
Cons: A bit pricey - you're paying extra for the HDTV tuner and the artwork (which IMO is worth it because it's rare to see such elegance in monitors). Slight backlight bleed on the edges (all LCDs will have this, unless they're LED backlit). Probably a pro, but this monitor's way too bright on default settings - had to turn it down to 30-40 for my eyes. The T240 has a USB hub, this one doesn't. Lacks height & rotate adjustments.
The bottom line: If you want a 24" high-performance TN panel monitor that also has a sleek design, go for this and pay the extra ~$50-100 for it; you'll also get an HDTV tuner. If all you care about is performance, look at other Samsungs; or an HP, Dell, Acer, or BenQ.
Two picture options are available for HD aspect ratio: 16:9 setting, and "just scan," which appear identical to each other, both having letterbox on top and bottom so that you get full 1920X1080p HD.
The HDTV QAM/ATSC tuner included is great. A cheaper alternative to full hd picture if you don't want to settle for 720p. I have adjusted the color through the TV settings and also using the my laptops display calibration tool.
Scanned for channels and was be able able to receive several HD channels outputting in 1080i and 720p.
Bottom Line: monitor works great for hdmi (2inputs) full hd1080p use (albiet a TFT display which will cause viewing angles to be somewhat restricted depending on lighting conditions and distance/angle of viewing between the you and the monitor)], good for a PS3 use or any hdmi console, it can hook up to your laptop as a monitor, a bonus of the great HDTV built in-tuner, w/ digital optical out sound hookup as well for under $600.
In TV and HDMI modes, the buzzing starts when the backlight is set below 9 (10 is the maximum). There is another control called "brightness", which does not affect the buzzing, so setting backlight to 9 and "brightness" low, is a way to get around the problem. I am not sure why there are 2 ways to control the brightness, and what is the difference between them.
Customer support were not very helpful. They suggested I send them the TV, and they will fix it or send me another one. I decided to return the TV to the store, and get a brand new one instead. Unfortunately the new one has exactly the same problem as the first one, so unless I get used to this buzzing, it will also be returned.
This is my first LCD TV, so I don't know if this is a common problem. I have another LCD monitor (which is about 5 years old) and 2 laptops, and none of them have this problem.
If it wasn't for this buzzing, I would give it 4 stars. I especially like the size and the resolution when used as a monitor. The only other minor problems are:
- sound is mediocre
- I really don't like the glossy bezel. It does look beautiful, but I hate the glare. It also shows fingerprints, dust, and scratches easily.
