LCD offers good picture, decent price

If you're in the market for a sleek, stylish LCD, the Samsung SyncMaster 204T is certainly worth a look. This solid, all-around 20-inch display features analog and digital inputs, as well as a height-adjustable stand that can also tilt, swivel, and pivot into portrait mode. The display comes in silver or black and features a slim-bezel design.

When I attached the display to our test Mac using a DVI connection, the 204T automatically started up in its full, native 1600-by-1200-pixel resolution. Like many LCDs, its default colour settings looked a little too blue and bright. Luckily, it's easy to adjust these settings via Samsung's easy-to-navigate, on-screen controls.

After calibrating the display, colours looked vibrant and accurate. Even at small point sizes, text was easy to read, and I found no dead or stuck pixels during my testing.

However, I did see a noticeable colour shift when moving from left to right across the screen. This shouldn't be a big concern, though, unless you regularly have groups of people gathered around your monitor.

Conclusion: If you're looking for a highly adjustable, mid-sized LCD, you should definitely consider the SyncMaster 204T.
