Samsung 2494HM review

 

Many monitors come with fixed stands, so the fully adjustable stand that comes with the 24in full HD 2494HM is refreshing.

A smart monitor with an adjustable stand, USB hub and decent picture quality. Its slightly uneven backlight lets it down a little, though.

Very nice monitor from a quality brand

 

I bought this monitor at my local discount warehouse store (not sure if this site allows me to name names) at a great price considering the size, resolution, and reputation/quality of the brand. Brand was important to me when shopping for a monitor....

Touch (optical?) buttons. VGA, DVI, & HDMI connections. Comes with DVI cable. 24" and 1920x1080 resolution (supports 1080p). Built-in Speakers. Stylish

The connections are a little hard to get to. Speakers are quiet. The touch buttons take a little bit of time to get used to

Decent

 

Great little monitor, had it since 2010

Occasionally takes it's sweet time to find the right input, automatically rotating through HDMI, Analog, ect

Samsung service fails

 

Got the item as a factory refurb and it's missing the latch that holds the 2 base pieces together. I contacted Samsung via chat and they told me to pound sand. Now I get to ship the entire monitor back because they won't cough up a tiny plastic part....

Monitor works and the display is awesome

Samsung support

Consumer review by:

It's ok.

 

I got this as a very cheap option for a second monitor and for watching TV. It's worked well for these purposes.

Cheap, has speakers

1. Color seems a bit off, even after quite a bit of tweaking ; 2. The stand isn't height-adjustable (but I knew that) ; 3. Less than stellar viewing angles

Consumer review by:

Great buy!

 

Thing is practically brand new! No bad pixels. Great monitor, great brand, fraction of the cost of a new one

The only thing I would list as a con is the blinking blue LED spotlight on the front of the monitor while it is on standby

:D

 

Bought it to become my primary, sending my current to secondary. Setting up dual monitors was a breeze, even with SLI cards.

Granted, I haven't owned it for a day yet, but IT'S ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

Say what

Great monitor for the price

 

The image is almost too bright and the default setting is %100. I set it down to %50 and it's still plenty bright enough. Basically I'm happy with this monitor and for the price I paid I think it's a great product. To get a 24" 16:9 screen with full HD...

Price. I picked up this monitor for $239.99 CDN before the price went up. Running in 1920x1080 native resolution and nothing is "cut off" by the bezel. The entire start bar to the task bar is dead on the edge as it should be. Not sure what happened to...

The touch sensitive buttons aren't as easy to use as standard push buttons
