Samsung 2693HM review


The Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM is a 25.5-inch LCD monitor that can be found online for as little as $444. It boasts a pleasing aesthetic, good performance, especially for movies, in the warm preset, and includes 360-degree rotation and 90-degree...

Very good performance, especially for movies; 360-degree rotation; unique buttonless OSD design; good price for such a large screen.

Flimsy, hollow plastic in back; cannot see or feel the OSD in dark; bad viewing angle from the bottom; overcalibrated "Cool" temperature setting.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM proved itself to be an excellent overall performer, particularly during movie playback, and can be had for a fair price. Only a flimsy stand, an overcalibrated color-temperature setting, and a poor lower viewing angle...

Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM


This 26in LCD monitor has an HDMI input and a 5ms response time, so it's a great choice for gamers.

Design, HDMI, 5ms response time, minimal trailing and ghosting during gaming, excellent colour and contrast

Touch-sensitive buttons lack a backlight, speakers are mediocre, vertical viewing angles could be improved

Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM review


Samsung's 2693HM has touch-sensitive menu buttons, which are extremely annoying to use: you can't feel for them in the dark, they don't light up and the icons are barely visible.

Excellent monitor


Beautiful. large monitor with superb color and clarity. The size of this monitor makes working on my computer much more enjoyable than my old 19 in CRT. Personally, I really like the touch controls. Easy to use unless you are in a room with no light....

No dead pixels. Excellent clarity...plays games smoothly and with superb contrast. Very good view from different angles while sitting

None so far

The monitor is so big and bright I thought I was going to get a sun burn. You definately have to adjust the brightness down considerably. Even then you still have an awesome display
