I have a question about quality of calibration of Samsung 244t you have tested. You mentioned:
[...] Now I was ready to use my ColorVision Spyder2PRO to calibrate and profile the monitor to parameters consistent with my Photoshop work space, which is Adobe RGB (1998), with a color temperature of 6500K and a gamma of 2.2. That went smoothly [...]
Can you please post the results of your calibration with this monitor ? Or even DeltaE values ? I ask, as I have found the following site, showing not so good results of calibration for both 214t and 244t, with DeltaE > 4 for green and blue shades.
Your comments would be very welcome, as due to price drop of 214t, I am considering to buy it. Also, as 214t is now at the same price as 215tw, which shows much better calibration results (at least on the same site), I can still change my order to 215tw. I am going to use this lcd for all kinds of work - Word, Excell, Photoshop+photo editing, movies from time to time (but no games, as I do not play games :-)
