Syncmaster 2493HM

 

The Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM looks great--and I'm not talking exclusively about the antiglare treatment or the crisp 1920-by-1200-pixel native resolution, which provides very good visual quality. The SyncMaster also sports sleek lines and a thin,...

Good design HDMI connectivity

Specs engraved in bezel Hard to see menu buttons

Still, this is a great monitor at an average price--and that's a winning combination

To the casual observer, it would appear that LCD monitors are simultaneously getting bigger and cheaper. While this may be true for some panels, there is a point where size ...

Great value ; Lots of connectivity options ; Smooth video and gaming playback ; Aesthetically pleasing

Front controls extremely difficult to read ; TN panel not suitable for pro graphics work

The software package included with this panel is Samsung’s standard MagicTune suite. This utility allows you to access and configure all the OSD settings without ever touching the front controls. There's also some minor calibration tools, and some...

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM Widescreen Monitor

 

The price of LCD screens has steadily declined and in the last few years, larger monitors are starting to become relatively affordable. This is especially evident in the 19", 20" and 22" categories, where we see a significant number of products in the...

Great Value ; High Brightness ; Good Response Time ; 4-way Adjustable Stand w/ USB Hub ; Ample Connectivity (VGA, DVI, HDMI) ; Good Looks and Build Quality

Mediocre Viewing Angles ; Unsuitable for professional graphics work (TN panel)

Performance Summary: Throughout our testing we found the Samsung 2493HM to be an excellent display. It performed acceptably in the multimedia tasks it was designed for an it also handled standard desktop tasks with aplomb. While the screen suffers from...

Fantastic contrast, sharp images, great blacks and rich colours, excellent design, HDMI input

Vertical viewing angles are a little off

Samsung's SyncMaster 2493 is an almost flawless 24in display. It renders motion excellently, has great contrast and colour reproduction and packs in an HDMI input and a resolution of 1920x1080. Whatever you're using your display for, this unit should...

Superb image quality and design at a good price

You can reduce this by lowering the brightness in the OSD, and the 2493HM makes use of a set of touch-sensitive buttons on the front. The colour tone is slightly warmer than the Dell, with a tiny tinge of magenta in our tinting test, making for vibrant...

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM

 

You're not going to find a better 24" monitor at anywhere near this price. So long as you plan to use it with external speakers and can memorize that the power "button" is on the far right bottom then this is an amazing monitor. The touch-sensitive...

10000:1 contrast, HDMI, DVI, and VGA inputs, 5ms response time, 1920x1200 resolution, includes both VGA, DVI, and audio cables

Built-in speakers produce puny sound and touch-sensitive buttons on front are impossible to see
