REVIEW: Samsung 245B Part 14
Subjectively, the Samsung 24-inch monitor is well to very well-suited to displaying fast-paced games. Even in lower resolutions, we notices no juddering caused by differing vertical frequencies. Tearing effects are not present when vertical synchronisation is active.
Users seeking a large monitor for office use but afraid of small pixel size should certainly put the SyncMaster 245B on their shopping lists. This 24-inch monitor proves that even lower resolutions need not necessarily look bad in desktop use.
The resolution 1.440 x 900 is displayed even more sharply than the one level smaller resolution of 1.680 x 1.050. However, black text on a white background still looks slightly blurry; this can be remedied using a sharpness setting of 80 – 100, optimising the setting using the monitor menu.
After doing this, we could work in relatively good quality in both resolutions. Naturally, one cannot expect the same degree of sharpness as in the native resolution of 1.920 x 1.200– those who do not have Microsoft’s Cleartype or another text optimiser can also use the SyncMaster 245B’a interpolation without fearing a catastrophic picture.
It should be self-explanatory that the very good interpolation quality can also be transferred to games. The pictures show that detail loss is hardly visible in the resolutions 1.680 x 1.050 and 1.440 x 900.
