Beautiful inside and out, the Samsung Touch Of Color T200HD LCD monitor is a great way to get the most out of your PC--as well as watch your favorite 1080p HDTV broadcasts. It features an embedded DTV tuner that enables you to watch digital HD broadcasts without a special receiving set. And with six image input terminals, you can connect several pieces of digital equipment to the T200HD and use them simultaneously. Two HDMI connections make your monitor a multimedia centerpiece. Additionally, SRS TruSurround XT is embedded to improve audio performance.
The contrast between light and dark colors on the screen is what makes images stand out. The bigger the difference between light and dark images, the more vibrant images will appear. With an amazing dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1 you’ll enjoy sharper image quality that’s sure to catch your eye. You'll also make a style statement with Samsung's new Touch of Color design, which features a hint of color naturally blended into the traditional piano black frame.
The T200HD is designed to be extremely efficient and uses up to a third less power than other monitors in its class. The unique SoftPower off function lets you put the monitor in standby mode right away, using just 0.3 W of power. It comes with a monitor stand that can tilt up to 20 degrees for optimal viewing and a full-feature remote control. The monitor's speakers reside underneath the screen and provide a total of 6 watts of audio power (3 watts per channel).

My sister bought this piece of crap 2 weeks ago (early March 2009) and as others have said, the speakers are crap. The thing that I find amazing is there is so little you can do about it. There is only 1 output for audio and that's an optical cord outlet. Try finding speakers with an optical input that don't cost way more than this TV, if you can. I found a cheap Coby entertainment system (DVD player and 5.1 speakers-$60) figuring she could hear sound through its speakers, but guess what, that's only if you're watching a DVD (of course). DVD players are pretty much 1-way, everything-wise nowadays with only "outputs" for video and audio (LAME). So, as long as you don't want to watch "TV" with this, you're okay. What a waste of electronics, really....more info
- Exceeded Expectations
Ordered Friday, received Saturday via UPS in the morning 9am and in several minutes, up and running. Picture quality is amazingly awesome considering the price tag. The display showing ear plug, HDMI on side of monitor is there except the something else which I can not make out which is not included on the LCD. None-the-less, one should not be disappointed with the performance of this HDTV/Monitor. I went completely digital and purchased a Samsung DVD-1080P9 Player for $70 bucks using HDMI cables (pay not more than $10 bucks for HDMI cables and for 3 feet, definitely no more than $5 on the street) and a set of Logitech X-240 Speakers (up to 50 watts of power, yeah!). I use LCD for bedroom use, any space larger may not be entirely ideal unless you're in a studio or efficiency residence. Perfect visuals from DVD and DTV though flat on sound. An external speaker/surround system is required as this LCD is weak on providing audio quality in relationship to picture performance. 50+ on the volume level and not a whole lot is heard on the increase (a drop to 4 stars because of this and that something missing on the side. Amazon needs to update photo or explain it. A trip to Samsung website may offer a clue. Perhaps different LCDs are doing different things since folks opinions vary. A great deal especially with a $50 rebate. Would I recommend? Yes. There is truly a night and day difference when you begin to experience the digital signals of DVD and High Definition Television.
PS. That something else on the side of this LCD is called a CI Slot which stands for Common Interface. It has something to do with receiving additional channels or to that affect. Even the Samsung website states that it should be there. ...more info
- Wonderful TV for the money
The tv is a Samsung T200HD 20" Touch of Color LCD HDTV Widescreen Monitor.
My cousin was the first to purchase it; I saw it and liked it so I bought
one. My sister liked mine so she purchased one. I just purchased another
one for my daughter and son-in-law as a 1st yr. anniversary gift for their
bedroom. They also love it. All this ordering of this TV was done in a
matter of a month, two at the most. We are all very happy with our TVs and would recommend it to everyone. Can't go wrong for the price. The picture is clear and the color is wonderful. My whole family would definitly recommend this TV as I do. Sincerely, N. DiFazio of Chgo. Il....more info

- Samsung T200HD LCD Review
Overall I'm impressed with the design features and quality of Samsung products. The 20' HDTV is a great value offering excellent connectivity and picture quality. The picture sharpness and clarity when playing a Divx 1080p upconverted movie (HDMI) or DVI connection to my destop PC is excellent. The only weak point observed was the QAM tuner. Occasionally, 1080i broadcast reception pixelization occurs indicating weak signal strength. The same signal works great on my cable set top box or my Fushion HDTV PC card. I changed the setup, trying STD, HRC and IRC frequencies and fine tuning but the problem was still there. It's a small issue that may not affect most buyers. Overall, it's still a great product at a great price....more info
- One of the only small HD sets with near 1080P resolution!
This TV beats any small HDTV by ANY brand, INCLUDING the small Sony sets! Beautiful, detailed picture! No guesswork in programming the channels! The T200HD is THE reference standard in small HDTVs! It has two HDMI inputs so you can add both a cable box AND an Blu Ray player if needed! ...more info
- The resolution is not 1920 x 1200 as it is advertised.
The box says it's the correct model name and number. All of the specs are correct except that the box says the resolution is 1680 x 1050 and that is in fact what it was when I plugged it in and checked. In reading more of the product reviews I see complaints about this going back at least as far as November 2008 and as recently as a week ago. What the heck? I'm on the phone now with an Amazon customer service rep who is clearly overseas and I can barely hear him because the connection is so poor. He said that they'll take the product page down right away so no one else has the same problem. I find that hard to believe since this problem has apparently been happening for at least 4 months. He said they'll ship me another one right away but that's crazy; I don't want to just receive another one of the same. Note: For those of you who commented on other reviews that we as buyers should have known because no monitors under 24" have a 1920 x 1200 resolution, I can only reply that I'm typing this review on my 17" MacBook Pro which has a resolution of -- you guessed it -- 1920 x 1200.
Update: I've never seen a computer monitor with the color so far off out of the box. After running Mac's display color calibrator it's tolerable but not great. Additionally, if I'm looking at it with my head even a few inches off center (left/right) there is a significant shift in color. It's spooky to see the color shift from warm to cool by moving my head a couple inches. If I move my head up/down slightly from center there are significant shifts in contrast. This is definitely not a monitor you'd want to do any Photoshop work on.
Update: Amazon corrected the monitor resolution information so that it now reads correctly: 1680 x 1050
There is no tilt adjustment. I've never seen a monitor before that doesn't tilt....more info
So far the product has performed well. It suits my needs for the price. I have no complaints yet although I find the on/off switch somewhat flaky....more info
- Powerful little TV
I use this for gaming and personally, its the best and brightest picture i have seen on a tv this size. Samsung has always made great products though. I wasn't really that surprised when i got it that the picture was amazing. I am running my Xbox 360 through it a 1080p. I am using panasonic "retro" headphones so my wife doesn't yell when i play my game very loud. and wow. With the two combined i have no complaints....more info
- Samsung T200 HDTV monitor
This is a great option if you have a small space, like our kitchen undercounter area, and want an alternative to the higher price Samsung TV. It looks great and has all of the same features as the same sized Samsung TV at a considerably lower price. The picture and response rate are outstanding. The base is sturdy and though it will not swivel, the monitor is light it can easily be lifted to be repositioned. The volume is more than what one needs, although there is not much bottom end (limited low frequency response) so plan on tweaking the equalization to improve things a bit. Too bad, because otherwise this would be one PERFECT monitor! ...more info
- Very Good Monitor/TV
Great color. Easy setup. Only had to adjust the brightness, contrast and sharpness controls just a little to optimize the display. The colors were excellent without adjustment. Didn't give it a 5 star because:
1. Can't be wall mounted - no mounting holes.
2. No PIP - would be nice to have the TV playing while using the computer.
3. Audio jack on the side rather than the back - no functional problem but it does detract from the otherwise beautiful appearance of the unit. One really needs to use the audio out because the internal speakers are not that great.
- Great Value
Great value. I have it hooked up to my computer, dvd player and cable and it works perfectly. Very happy with my purchase and I've already recommended it to a number of people. ...more info

- Great HDTV
Received promptly. Clear picture and decent sound. No problem with reception with Antennas Direct DB2 Multi Directional HDTV Antenna I bought together.
Highly recommend...more info
- Excellent television, except sound
This appears to be a well constructed, full featured unit. Picture quality is outstanding, and connection capability is very flexible. I have purchased two of these units. However, the audio quality is horrible, sounding like a tinny 50's era transistor radio. For any decent audio you'll need to connect to an external audio system....more info
- Samsung hits it out of the ballpark - except for the stand!
The Samsung Touch of Color line looks cool. The crimson accent bezel and touch sensitive power button with melody sound is in a class of its own.
Everything looks good and works great like a fine piece of Samsung should.
The only negative i've seen on this tv is the stand. You could rig up something to wall mount this. It would have to be custom. Not impossible but definitely not VESA wall mount. It can be done.
Also the component input will flicker with 1920x1080p . You must feed it 1920x1080i (linksys dma2200 media center extender is what i used).
Everything else works great. Really like all other Samsung products they go above and beyond everyone else and produce a very nice product.
Worth every penny over "no-name" generic LCD HDTV's.
The warranty is 3 years which is really good for a monitor.
This is a monitor first - 1680x1050 - with an excellent choice of tv options.
The audio - it is fine for a small room as long as you use the "CUSTOM" equalizer mode and tweak it for your liking. People that complain did not spend the time necessary to tune the sound or are trying to use a 20" tv in a full size family room.
I look forward to owning more Touch of Color displays after this impression!...more info
- Samsung Delight
The color and clarity of this tv/monitor is one of the best I've had. I've seen Panasonic, Philips, Sony and Compaq/HP and Samsung is the best.
You can't go wrong with Samsung. I also have a 40" LCD tv that is HDTV and it's beautiful as well.
Go Samsung!...more info
- You will be happy-don't hesitate,price is right!~~!!!~~!!
I have been searching for a flat screen for my kitchen for awhile. What really sold me was the dual function for a PC monitor with a 3 year warranty, since TV's only have a one year warranty. I just bought the 22" one also,since it is now less than what paid for the 20",for my son who will be off to college in the fall. You can't beat the price and free shipping from AMAZON. Picture and quality are great as far as I am concerned. You get a lot of bang for your buck-as they say!~~!! Whatever that really means?? Thanks for taking the time to read this. I have always counted on other buyers reviews in the past when searching for a product. Denise...more info

- Advice needed for mounting
I've yet to actually purchase this HDTV by Samsung. Since it is labeled as a "monitor," it would be expected that this device lacks a VESA mounting option. But since it can double as a HDTV (and it seems that is what many customers are using it for) it's disappointing that Samsung did not include the VESA mounting holes. With the mounting feature being the only reason I haven't gotten this NEARLY perfect monitor, can anyone share with me how to mount such a device (I need to mount onto a full-swing arm...of which I only know they're made to be paired with VESA capable devices)? I'm also curious if the stand is removable. It'd be unpleasing to have a HDTV mounted on the wall with the stand still attached....more info
- Great Buy
If you are looking for a smaller TV for a Bedroom or Kitchen or even a Computer this is one of the best out there. Great price too....more info
- Two tasks with one LCD
Great LCD if your looking to kill two birds with one stone. It does a good job of being both a PC monitor and a TV for watching TV programs in a realativley small room. However it does not do a great job. Sound is OK movie viewing is just above average. Large display for the PC above avberage also. Not sure about gaming yet. Like I said for the price its better than buying both an LCD for the PC and a LCDHD for tv watching.
Be warned though the plastic that this thing is made out of is very soft meaning if you so much as wipe dust on it it scratches. ...more info
- Nice TV

Excellent product, Awesome looks. I wanted a 22', but this is one pretty good for the money, great image, great sound and good menu.
The only cons are the aspect Ratio 16:10 and the standard seems to be 16:9.
Buy it :D...more info
- Beautiful picture
The order was quickly filled. I found the assembly to be minimal and easy. Of course, connecting to Cable is simple. Turning it on the first time, it has a pleasant tone and lighting to let you know it's activated. The picture is...WOW. For the money, it is a great buy. 20 inch for the smaller rooms is ideal. The only negative is the sound system; it's terrible! Apparently, the speakers are cheaply made. I fixed it by hooking up two remote speakers with an independent power supply and volume control. Now it is a small system to rave about!
P.S. This is the replacement unit Amazon shipped. The first unit arrived DOA and the return process was simple and fast. I don't know how Amazon could have improved this process! Great job Amazon!...more info
