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

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM 24 Inch LCD Monitor


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...

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

Consumer review by:

Awesome! Well worth the money!


If you're looking for a large format wide screen monitor, this will do you! If you don't want all the bells and whistles of Dell's equivalent sized screen, this is the for you! Well worth the asking price!

Full HD ; Versatile connectivity (HDMI, DVI, Analog) ; Very bright colours ; Plenty of screen real estate ; Multi-adjustable stand (height, tilt(left/right/up/down))

OSD controls very difficult to read in badly lit room ; Quite heavy

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM


I spent a lot of time looking around and researching panels and choose this one. I have been looking at the Gateway and HP 24" panels and this one seems to combine the best of both but with a much better warranty and overall better quality. I love this...
