Samsung Syncmaster 242MP Monitor

 

Samsung's 24-inch SyncMaster 242mp's claim to fame is a built-in TV tuner. We first looked at this model in the New Products section in PC World's August 2005 issue; this is the first time we've been able to compare it side-by-side with other 23- and...

Excellent performance as a monitor Includes HDCP and a TV tuner

Changing to TV functions is clumsy

The 242mp is the only large wide-screen monitor we've recently tested that includes a TV tuner. Unfortunately, this feature reminded me of a sofa bed: Changing from one function to the other took time and effort, and it's not well-suited for both...

Great image quality. Superb viewing-angle performance. Built-in TV and FM tuners.

No USB ports. Stand does not swivel and lacks height adjustment.

The big (24-inch) Samsung SyncMaster 242mp multifunction monitor delivers impressive widescreen image quality and an assortment of connectivity options. It's a good choice whether you need a big monitor that doubles as a TV, or a small TV that doubles as

Samsung SyncMaster 242MP 24" LCD Multi-functional Monitor

 

Expert review by:

Samsung SyncMaster 242MP

 

When it comes to monitors, Samsung has proven dominant in the market. In the past, they have released several multi-purpose monitors which were not up to snuff in the past, either due to low response times or poor integration of technology. Recently,...

It is a great display unit, but for me, it is not good enough to be a replacement for an LCD TV.

A television tuner doesn't turn this otherwise gorgeous monitor into a good TV.

Stellar PC LCD monitor

Artefacts when viewing TV or DVD

Samsung Syncmaster 242MP 24in LCD Flat Panel Display Black

 

Has internal HD/TV tuner and detachable speakers with okay sound. The definition of this unit makes non-cable channels not look so good anymore. After much looking around this is reported to be the best unit for the price, size and functionality. ...

Super monitor resolution/TV picture detail. Picture in picture allows input from many sources; I can watch TV via resizable movable portion of screen as I do CAD, Internet & other work. Great remote

Screen flickers for 3 to 5 minutes before settling down after warming up. Not sure if that is suppose to happen; maybe my unit is cursed. Refresh "snow" in small sections up close ocassionally

Very usefull device for home because I can delete my TV, which stand near PC monitor. There is picture-in-picture mode, so you can work on PC and watch (or heard) TV.24 inches with 1920x1200 pixels resolution - great. As PC monitor - no problems. Every...

Good quality of picture from PC. Brilliant picture from DVD and HDTV. Picture in TV mode depends on analog signal quality. HDTV-ready.Bright, clear, good colours. Easy tuning of luninance (4 presets

Not so good sound, my 2.1 computer audiosystem much more impressive

Pretty awesome

 

This is a great wide big monitor that you can also watch some nice tv on.If you buy it you wont have buyers remorse,It still amases me after 5 months of use.

I bought this unit back in March and I still think it was my most important pc component.I did not buy this thru new egg but the rest of my pc was ; This is an amazing monitor colors and contrast cant be beat.The native resolution 1920x1200 is awesome...

Price,but you get what you pay for ; Higher response time,but I play fps's and have never noticed any ghosting.Does get hot and with my gaming pc can warm a room easily

Fantabulous

 

Picture and Picture TV while on the net or playing a game is great, never miss a show.

Easy to install. Great color and visual setting preferences are easy to set up. Works great with all the MMORPG games and CD Rom games I play. Good sound with stand up speakers (note: not attached) Looks great also

None that I can find
