Up Close and Personal with the 240T

The 240T measures 620x483x228mm and so a lot of desk space is taken up by the unit and by its two speakers (which can be removed and set on X-shaped aluminum-looking stands). In the side profile image to the right, you can see the mounts used to hold the speakers in place. The only down side to these clips is that for the speakers to be free standing, and look good, the little clips have to be unscrewed. The chances of loosing the special chrome plated hardware is pretty high...

Normally, most consumers are little interested with the rear of a display - after all it is the picture quality which is most important. While that is true, when it comes to LCD's, there are few key things we all need to watch out for. The first of which is mounting points for an armature or wall bracket. The 240T is compatible with 100mm VESA mounting plates so it can be raised up on a sturdy stand, or to a wall for zero footprint operation. The stand does come off once four particular screws are removed, so it won't be necessary to leave it dangling in the air. :)

Next up in the list of things to look out for is the all important Kensington Lock hole. Kensington locks are used to secure things like laptop's and expensive LCD's from theft, and it is a good measure to add if you happen to work in a open workplace. There are bunch of connectors for various things, but we'll get to that in a moment or two.

In our long list of LCD reviews we don't generally show you what the base looks like, but in the case of the Samsung 240T there are a couple things to be aware of. First off, the 240T is big and heavy so it is a pretty stationary unit. There is no easy way of moving it to the left or right, and no way to adjust the display vertically. The stand does allow the LCD to be tilted 10 degrees forward, and about 15 degrees to the rear however.
