Summary: I purchased the T200HD just over a year ago, when my wife wanted to buy a Nintendo Wii, as our previous Samsung monitor couldn't connect to the Wii. Its primary function in our house is as monitor for our Mac Mini. In this capacity it works really well, our movies look great on it and because it is a monitor with a TV tuner, rather than a TV with a PC input, the resolution is perfect for viewing text.
Pros: Multiple inputs, great picture quality
Cons: Occasionally turns itself off, speakers can be noisy
Summary: Like others here I was looking for a hybrid so that I could replace my old 15" tft monitor and an old portable tv in my bedroom. I'm really delighted on both counts. It has 2 HDMI inputs (including one at the side which is quite handy for connecting some portable devices like a Flip Mino HD camcorder) plus the normal aerial, DVI and VGA connections. It also has a freeview receiver which seems just as receptive as my main tv. Setup is fairly easy. Resolution is good.
Excerpt: "...computer monitor a review of Samsung SyncMaster T200HD will not only be incomplete but an injustice to a really great product engineered by Samsung. I have always had high regards for Samsung Monitors for computers and Samsung LCD TVs. But T2000HD is altogether a revelation. Basically both computer monitors and TVs perform the same job of presenting visual information to the viewer. But it requires a different technology to display text clearly, ...
Summary: Bought this to connect to my son's PC in their bedroom so that they could use it as a monitor, watch TV / DVD and play their console through the one screen. It is entirely suited for this purpose and so meets the requirement. Others have mentioned that sound through the speakers isn't very good. I disagree, I think the sound is entirely adequate for the size of screen and likely uses of the screen.
Excerpt: "This samsung PC monitor really is a fantastic and beautiful piece of kit. The first thing I noticed when taking it out of the box when it arrived on my doorstep was simply how stunning it was. The shape of the monitor and its frame just seems to flow and ooze with sexyness. It has a magnificant colour tinge to it aswell. A lovely deep red shines through the gloss black finish of the monitor making it really quite spectacular and unique to look at. ...
Pros: looks fantastic, fair price, stupidly easy to use
Cons: changing the colour levels can be pretty awkward, bulky base of the monitor
Summary: 1) Analogue TV 2) Freeview TV 3) Monitor for my Wii 4) 2nd monitor for my 20" iMac I bought this product for less than half the price of the equivalent Mac extension monitor. It doesn't match the iMac in height but I use the main Mac screen to run Apple Logic music production software and the Samsung to manage all the effects and plug ins so this does not matter. It sits on my desk in my lounge providing me with a Freeview TV and a monitor for my Wii as well.
