    Samsung SyncMaster 213T Monitor

    Bottom Line: The 213T is another great addition to Samsung's LCD monitor line. It looks great and has good picture quality, although the hefty price tag could put off all but businesses or extreme enthusiasts, having said all that we would highly recommend the 213T. Read on to find out more in our official review.....

    The picture above doesn't do justice when trying to show how big the 213T really is. As stated before, the panel measures 18.6" wide and 18" high. If you want a good comparison as to how big this is, it is roughly 2 and 3/4 cd's high and 3 and 1/2 cd's wide, so measure your monitor and see how it stacks up.

    From the back, you can see the black rotating disc that allows the monitor to be used with the PivotPro software. You can also see the location of the analog and digital connections. This position is tough to reach so you may want to rotate the monitor to make these inputs more accessible.

    The panel of the 213T is more modern day than the 173P's single button panel with several buttons for quick control over features like auto adjustment, source selection (digital or analog), and brightness level. It also has a menu system from which you can adjust brightness, contrast, image, color control, on screen display qualities like horizontal/vertical position. All pretty basic stuff.

    For testing DisplayMate's software was run. Below are some tests of the program.

    The DisplayMate results were very good with no dead pixels to be found. Along with running DisplayMate, some Unreal Tournament 2004 and Doom 3 was played to test for ghosting. Turns out some minor ghosting was occurring which was to be expected with the 213T's 25ms response time. Game play was still enjoyable as the ghosting really wasn't enough to hinder the experience.
