Samsung T240 24-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Review

[ad#review958-top]In today’s digital world the majority of computer users are using LCD monitors. No matter where you are using a computer, in the office or in the home, Samsung is one of the top manufacturers of LCD monitors. Typically, LCD monitors are pretty much all the same when it comes to style and design. For example, you know that boring black bezel that makes LCD monitors look all the same? Samsung has decided to bring a bit more class and elegance to their LCD monitors with the introduction of their T series, T meaning Touch of Color.

Typically, packaged like other LCD monitors I have used, the T240 has nothing that really stands out. Unfortunately, due to the condition of the outer box I thought it best not to post the photos. Don’t worry none of it was shipping damage, but it seems that someone before myself used brown packaging tape all over the box when they were done playing with it.

The insides of course, include the typical items you would get in any LCD monitor you purchase; monitor, stand, AC power cable, DVI and VGA video cables, CD with drivers/software and the installation manual. They even included a quick-start guide, which makes putting together the Samsung T240 that much easier.
