Samsung SyncMaster 245T

This fully adjustable monitor has many inputs and good image quality -- along with a hefty price tag.

Samsung SyncMaster 245T
  • Expert Rating

    4.00 / 5

Pros

  • Plethora of inputs, picture-in-picture

Cons

  • No built-in speakers, no Display Port connection

Bottom Line

It'll deliver a good quality image and has plenty of inputs, but it's expensive.

Would you buy this?

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

The monitor'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 245T's $1199.00 price tag, you don't get a built-in Webcam or speakers; 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 monitor performed well, earning a score of Very Good. Nevertheless, it finished slightly below Samsung's own SyncMaster 2493HM (which has built-in speakers) in overall performance. The 245T's extra video inputs and USB ports (four versus the 2493HM's two) are the main differences between the two monitors. But those extras raise the 245T's price.

The 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 costs more than some other monitors available that have just as many inputs and output an image of the same quality.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
