It’s worth many show visitors walking in the direction of Samsung stand this year to see if they can seek out the Syncmaster 240T — a flat panel LCD monitor with a massive 24-inch viewable area. The massive screen can be viewed in a variety of Aspect Ratios.

Therefore, with the user being able to choose between 16:10, 5:4 and 4:3, the most comfortable and appropriate display mode can be applied. So, if the user is watching a letterbox/ widescreen DVD, it is merely a click of a button to switch to the optimised 4:3 aspect ratio.

This is just one example of the impressive number of display and input options. Perhaps the most significant is that the 240T is equipped to work in both digital and analogue modes. This is done with the provision of a 15pin D—sub connector (for analogue usage) and a DVI—D connector (for digital usage).

Added to this is a single S—Video and audio connector. On screen users will see a number of benefits over other monitors. First up is a handy picture’ in—picture function that allows users to view two sources at the same time — without the trouble of having to switch through windows.

One possible advantage of this is the possibility to view video footage, a DVD for example, in the corner of the screen and continue to work at the same time.

Another impressive feature, particularly when considering the immense size of the screen is the refresh rates. Many users, gamers in particular will note the that using an LCD monitor to view moving images often results in a substandard performance.
