Well, I did like my T240 pretty well over the course of the past year or so, but I owned this when I was home using the PC and watching some TV during the day, but now that I'm working during the day instead of at night, I'm beginning to see that the black levels and the brightness really are not that good for dim-lit/dark rooms. So I wound up going for the Dell 2408WFP, and I'd have to say, this monitor probably will do better for a low-light situation. The T240 was nice, but I'm still disappointed that it only used a TN panel, tho. I was expecting them to use the same S-PVA panels that they use in the HDTV counterparts. I never knew that Samsung only used TN in their ToC SyncMasters until I just recently saw the description a few weeks ago. The panel quality will make a big difference, unless it uses LED backlighting.
