Samsung 2693HM

 

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...

Despite its substantia price, Samsung's 2693HM performs well and looks great and that without a doubt is what most people are looking for.

Good for viewing movies

 

I first bought this monitor after seeing it at one of my colleagues. I really like it's front panel display and the size of it is huge. Despite many reviews I do considder this a very good monitor for design and media plus the gaming experience is...

High resolution, good contrast and luminosity, nice desing on the front, clear image

Bad standard configured presets for colours, only 1 DVI connector on the back ; The power led flashes like crazy when in stand by mode ; Bad vertical viewing angle, though placed in a good position it won't be noticeable

2 Months with this Samsung 2693HM

 

I picked this up at a BB on clearance and I am very pleased. I have owned, Viewsonic,LG,Acer,Dell and another Samsung, so I do have a little experience in the LCD department. The reference to the viewing angle and distortion in the corner is...

Big, bright, very adjustable,touch sensor adjustment, response time, looks,Inputs,HDMI ; no burnt pixels,menu, MOVIES. 1920x1200 resolution. Contrast ; Great for gaming if you have a powerful PC and video card or cards SLI or Crossfire

Zero I can think of for now, other than needing a beefy graphics card or two if you plan on gaming with this monitor and hope for any decent framerates

BEAUTIFUL, AWESOME, HI-DEF with minimal cons...

 

1920x1200 resolution of clarity and striking colors. PC, DVI, and HDMI connections. Plugged in my PS3 with the HDMI and even get adequate sound through the speakers! Touch-sensative controls - Star Trek is still alive! 3-year warranty

Throws some heat! I am able to feel the heat on my face just sitting at my desk. But the worst is that the touch controls are not lit and due to the brightness of the screen, you can't see the controls! You have to fumble to make adjustments
