Examination:

This is our first 30" monitor we've reviewed at Phoronix and from the moment we pulled the Samsung SyncMaster 305T out of its foam bag we were in awe at its size and build quality. The monitor's physical dimensions are 27.1 x 19.8 x 11 inches and its weight is just less than 30 lbs.

The front of the Samsung monitor is relatively plain. In the lower right hand corner there is the power button along with up and down buttons. In the upper left hand corner the SyncMaster 305T model is printed and along the lower center part of the bezel is Samsung's logo printed. It is about a half-inch plastic bezel surrounds the 30" WQXGA TFT LCD panel.

On the back of the monitor near the bottom are the power adapter, power switch, DVI-D connector, USB 2.0 uplink, and the four USB 2.0 ports as part of the hub. It's unfortunate the Samsung SyncMaster 305T only has a dual-link DVI connector for input but no DisplayPort or HDMI capabilities. However, dual-link DVI should be suffice for most users. The USB 2.0 hub is a nice addition, but it would have been better if the hub were integrated into the side of the monitor, its base, or a more convenient location.
