During our testing of the Samsung SyncMaster 305T monitor we experienced no problems with ghosting or lagging or other visual imperfections. The viewing angles for this monitor were also great and close to its 178 / 178 degree rating.

Conclusion:

After using the Samsung SyncMaster 305T for several weeks now we have been very pleased with this 30" monitor. We had purchased this monitor for expanded graphics testing at 2560 x 1600 and its serving that purpose well. Gaming on a 30" display is also phenomenal, but this high-resolution display can also boost productivity from the added screen real estate and thus easier multi-tasking between applications. Our only complaint about the Samsung SyncMaster 305T is its price tag of about $1250 USD, but in comparison to other 30" monitors it's not a bad deal. The Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC is priced about the same while both are several hundred dollars cheaper than the Apple 30" Cinema Display. If you have a sufficient budget next time you are looking at upgrading your monitor, the Samsung SyncMaster 305T is worth considering.

Pricing information on the Samsung 305T and other LCD monitors is available through TestFreaks.com.
