Ratings: Samsung SyncMaster 244T LCD Monitor

Build Quality: 91
• Remarkably tight fit and finish
• Substantial heft due largely to the integrated power supply

Value: 88
• Costs more than most people's PCs, but worth every penny
• DVI and component video cables included!

Features: 93
• Exceptional connectivity, plus HDCP
• Has lots of easy-to-use, beneficial calibration tools and display options

Performance: 90
• An outstanding performer on all HTPC duties
• Stellar picture quality makes it an alternative to a traditional HDTV

Ergonomics: 85
• Clean lines and a well-designed stand, but the USB hub is a mixed blessing
• A remote control is sorely missed

Overall Rating: 90
Most computer monitors are too small to provide a real HT feel, but what's too big to be practical? The 24-inch widescreen format of the SyncMaster 244T might be right at the sweet spot, and the multiple inputs and dazzling video make it a clear winner.
