Samsung 245T vs 245B Showdown - Final Thoughts

 

First Impressions - Samsung SyncMaster 245T:

Like I had mentioned before, I had been using the Samsung 245B for almost a month before this second monitor showed up, so when I first pulled it out the box it looked very similar to the 245B. The 245T has quite a few more inputs (HDMI, Composite, USB), and it also features a glossy black finish, but otherwise the stand and overall look is identical to the 245B.

Once again I was very impressed by the nice sleek and professional look of this monitor; in addition the height-adjustable stand is a nice feature and allows you to really adjust this monitor to your liking.

As you can see in the comparison pictures these monitors look very similar to each other. The 245T has a black gloss finish, while the 245B does not, however Samsung has also released a 245BW model that is the same as the 245B but with a gloss finish also.
