      Have money and want quality display? Samsung Syncmaster 305T is the answer.

      Introduction:

      My father needed a 30" flat panel display for his office. So, he asked me for some help. I did some research over the internet and finally decided to buy Samsung SyncMaster 305T. We bought it and brought it to home. Then I started to check it and see if my choice was a good one. Yes, Samsung SyncMaster 305T did not let me down. The few days I was allowed to play games and watch movies on this display was a great experience.

      About Samsung:

      I have always been a fan of Samsung products. I have used quite a few of them, ranging from mobile to display and other stuff. I will simply say that Samsung is very good at what ever it does. Although I sometimes I prefer other companies, still Samsung is worth spending money on. In flat panel displays, I have always opted for Samsung or Sony. This time I chose Samsung. Let’s see what has it got to offer.

      ***************************************

      Dimensions And Weight:

      >Width: 69 cm
      >Depth: 28 cm
      >Height: 50.2 cm
      >Weight: 12 kg

      ***************************************

      Color:

      >Black
      A very nice feel about it.

      ***************************************

      Display:

      >Display Type: TFT active matrix

      >Size: 30" Widescreen
      Very good for office use. You will love watching movies on this display. Well for gamers, this display is more than enough.

      >Max Resolution: 2560 x 1600
      You'll need a dual-link DVI graphics card that can scale that high to get the best possible picture at those resolutions (for example GeForce 7 series).

      >24-bit colors
      Crisp colors. I liked the colors of this display the most.

      >Max Sync Rate (V x H): 75 Hz x 81 kHz

      >Response Time: 6 ms
      The quick response time deliver impressively smooth video performance.
      So, you can easily play games without any loss in picture quality. Motion artifacts are nonexistent in this display.
      I have played a few games on it and experienced absolutely no problems. The image quality was as crisp as ever. I will say, this display can prove to be a very good one for gamers as well.

      >Support for Multi-Window
      It is a good feature; you don't need to buy two monitors!

      ***************************************

      Image:

      >Aspect Ratio: 16:10
      It was an awesome experience watching DVD movies at this aspect ratio.

      >Brightness: 400 cd/m2
      Very bright. Sharp image, better viewing.

      >Contrast Ratio: 1000:1

      >Horizontal view angle: 178
      >Vertical view angle : 178
      It's great. you can even see the display clearly while you are not looking at it straight ahead. I found that the picture was a lot clearer, as compared to other flat panel displays, while looking from an angle.

      ***************************************

      Interface:

      >Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
      No other support. As it fulfilled my requirements, no problems. But if someone wants to buy it, do look at this.

      ***************************************

      Features:

      >Rotating screen
      >MagicTune
      >MagicRotation
      >Wall mountable
      The flat panel display is wall mountable. it also comes with a height adjustable stand with flexible tilt and swivel capabilities. Its your choice! You can mount it on a wall or place it over a desk.

      ***************************************

      On-Screen Controls:

      The only control it has to adjust the screen, is one for brightness. Buttons on the front of the bezel increase and decrease the brightness of the display, and that's it. It has got no other on-screen buttons!
      ***************************************

      Power Consumption:

      >In use: 130 Watts
      >Stand-by: 2 Watts
      This flat panel uses Samsung's Digital Power Management Signaling (DPMS), which automatically assess when the monitor is not in use and switch it to stand-by mode.

      ***************************************

      Price:

      The price of this product is reasonable for its size and display quality. It cost me around £1100 to buy this product. Although some can say the price is not reasonable, but other 30” flat panel displays also come in the same price range. The price of this display will fall with time. I don’t know the current actual price but it has dropped a bit.

      ***************************************

      Warranty And Support:

      The Samsung SyncMaster 305T comes with a nice three-year warranty. The warranty covers parts, labor, and backlighting. Samsung also provides you toll-free technical support for the life of the display

      ***************************************

      Final Thoughts:

      I really liked this display. It is definitely superior to many other displays in the same price range. I will strongly recommend it for office use. For gamers, there can be better choices but it definitely can prove to be an excellent display for games as well. So, if money is not the problem, what are you waiting for!
