Samsung S24C650PL review

 

Like most ‘business' monitors, this Samsung takes a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. That's nothing to do with business of course, unless your trade is in video production. Sadly the consumerisation of professional hardware means it's very difficult to...

The Samsung S24C650PL is a basic but high performance PC monitor that's suited to the office or the home. It has notably good image quality and a simple unadorned aesthetic that should ensure it doesn't date or draw unnecessay attention from its...

Samsung S24C650PL review

 

A good business monitor with a wide range of ports and a flexible stand

Samsung S24C650

 

An almost perfect office and home office monitor

Attractive and practical design ; Easy pivot and height adjustment ; Easy to access USB ports ; Very good colour accuracy

Overly cool white point out of the box ; Uniformity could be better

we tested recently, but they're simple enough and have all the basic controls you really need.

Samsung S24C650PL review - excellent colour accuracy and consistency, but let down by light leak and inconsistency in luminosity

 

Bring extra space and great viewing angles into your studio space

HD resolution of 1920x1080, very good colour consistency and accuracy, 5ms refresh rate, telescopic stand, rotates and swivels, USB hub in base

Light leak all along the bottom of the screen, fairly awful luminance consistency, bland looks, not 100% sRGB, weak and tinny speakers Price: around £170

Fairly bland looking 24” PLS screen offers excellent colour accuracy and consistency, but is let down by light leak and quite dramatic inconsistency in luminosity. For general use, the viewing angles make it a good screen to demonstrate ideas to a...

UPDATE - It's all good now

 

This is an update to my previous review. The monitor wasn't looking to good, in spite of my attempts to adjust it, and I missed the window to RMA it with NewEgg. I contacted Samsung, and they let me send it back for "repair" under warantee. Their fix...

1200x1920 resolution. This is a real monitor with extra screen real estate. It's not a re-purposed TV screen ; Looks great when not routed through my KVM ; Samsung U.S. "Business class" support is very quick (this is a business class monitor, so...

Doesn't look so good when routed through my KVM. It's very dark with bad colors. (Might be an issue with the KVM.) ; It didn't look too good when I first received it. How did quality control let it out the door like that

I got a lemon

 

I've owned two of these (previous versions) for about 4 years. They work great, look great, and I love them. Unfortunately, this one seems to be a bad copy. It took a while for me to get it hooked up to my convoluted system (KVM with dual consoles &...

It's a real monitor, not a 1080 re-purposed TV screen. The 1920 x 1200 resolution very useful

Poor color & contrast. Intermittent color banding. Brightness varies from dark to unusable

Great monitor

 

Bought 9 of these for our office. I have 3 of them on my desk and love them. Great for business use, good value

The design of the back of this monitor is a little old school

Works like a champ

 

Can't beat the clarity, colors and pixel size. No stuck or white pixels, but note the con below. I really like the monitor

Defective screen. Yellow line from top to bottom just right of center. RMAing this one back and will change rating if/when I get a good monitor ; New Egg's return policy is A+, just a shame monitor is defective

So far so good

 

I bought this as I could not find a better replacement for my Samsung SA450. It has a thinner bezel than the SA450 but feels like they skimped somewhat on the build quality as compared to it. I've been a Samsung fan for over a decade as they have had...

Works properly, no issue in games, video, etc. Connectors are placed facing "up" and not on the side of the stand. Controls are easier to find and use than on the SA450. Closest 24" I've seen to my SyncMaster 204B 20" in design

Bezel is thin which makes the screen look smaller compared to the same size monitor next to it. Only one DVI and one "VGA" input on a monitor in 2014 is unacceptable - should have at least DisplayPort or a second DVI input
