Irvine, Calif.-based Samsung Electronics America Information Technology Division on Wednesday introduced its
SyncMaster 204t. It’s a 20.1-inch LCD monitor with conventional 4:3 aspect ratio and a native resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. It’s available now for US$599.
The SyncMaster 204t features a built-in power supply, height-adjustable stand and narrow bezel design. Available in black (linked above) and
finishes, the 204T features 700:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 0.255mm pixel pitch and a viewing angle of 178 degrees horizontal and vertical. Samsung says the display has a typical response time of 16ms.
The SyncMaster 204t features “MagicRotation” technology, which allows the display to be pivoted from landscape to portrait orientation. Although MagicRotation depends on software that requires Windows, this functionality can be duplicated with VersaVision — a feature of ATI’s Mac-based ATI Displays software that’s compatible with many of ATI’s retail and OEM graphics systems.
The SyncMaster 204t features both 15-pin D-Sub (VGA) and Digital Visual Interface (DVI) monitor connectors. It’s also VESA-compliant, so it can be used with wall mounts and other 100mm-based VESA-compatible mounting systems. Measuring 17.5 x 18.0 x 9.0 inches, the SyncMaster 204t weighs 18 pounds. Other features include one-button automatic calibration and an on-screen display for monitor controls.
