The Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD pulls double-duty as a PC monitor and an HDTV.

Stylish design. Good text and HD image quality. Relatively affordable.

Lacks DVI port. Uneven backlighitng. Oversaturated colors.

Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD

 

The SyncMaster FX2490HD is a LCD screen and a full-fledged TV screen and it's also one of the best looking screens we've ever seen

The LED-based SyncMaster FX2490HD is a flexible screen that excels at both work and play. It is reasonably priced as well.

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...

Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD review

 

With its chrome-effect stand and dark maroon bezel, this 24in is a stunning looking monitor. It's actually an LED HD TV, but Samsung says it's primarily a computer monitor. This is odd, as all the features you'd expect from a modern TV are present: a...

Contrary to Samsung's claim, this is primarily an HD TV, rather than a monitor. With overblown colours and processing, images look far from natural. It's also far too expensive.

Samsung - FX2490HD

 

The Samsung FX2490HD very definitely wants to be the display that makes the most of all that high-def content out there. From the front, it looks like a conventional 24-inch display - albeit one that sits ...

The FX2490HD left us with the feeling that it's trying rather hard to be a multipurpose wonder-display. Certainly it packs in heaps of connectors - but we have to question how many people in the UK have any use for a Common Interface slot. The styling...
