Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD

 

If you've only got room for a PC monitor or a small HDTV, but not both, the Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD ($369.99 street) has you covered. This 24-inch hybrid display is designed for the desktop but is slim enough to fit on a kitchen counter or a...

Quite a number of devices these days, especially electronic ones, are starting to become hybrid devices - taking on many features that similar devices usually do. Take the evolution of the mobile phone as a prime example; in 7 years or so the mobile...

To wrap things up, I went price hunting for the FX2490HD. I was able to find this display for around $379CDN from NCIX. What really shocked me was that my XL2370 23" LED monitor was only $50 cheaper! For the small difference of $50, not only does the...

BEST ENTERTAINMENT MONITOR OF 2010!!!!!

 

First I think this monitor deserved a better score than three and half stars. Eric Franklin always does this wobble movement test on monitors. I understand that a monitor needs to not only feel like it is made of high quality materials, but unless you...

This is an Excellent monitor ; Here is the monitor page as well as the Full Spec sheet page info: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/monitors/LS24F9NSM/ZA, http://www.samsung.com/us/system/consumer/product/ls/24/f9/ls24f9nsmza/FX2490HD_DSHT.pdf

The design of the Samsung FX2490HD is very slim and styish, but the design also makes this monitor appear smaller than other 24in monitors in it's class even though it is a 24in monitor that is larger than most stock monitors that people purchase

Consumer review by:

PIP only works when the input is ANT IN

 

If PIP is important for you don't buy this monitor. Otherwise it is a good buy taking into account the ration of price and quality.

Slim, functions well as a Main TV and PC Monitor

PIP function is really a scam, it only works when ANT IN is used. Shame that HDMI or even SCART cannot be used, hence in my case this is really useless because most of my TV channels require a cable box and these days RF in cable boxes is rare
