Great Deal!


If you are looking for a 24" monitor and dont want to pay a lot for one then this is a great choice. Just make sure you dont have to have that HDMI hookup.

I loved how amazingly cheap this 24" was. It is thin and has tilt so you can angle the display from front to back. Hookup was simple and works great with my mac mini. Played some World of Warcraft on it and everything looked great

It does seem a little stripped of features but i cant complain for the price. No HDMI and unlike the 23" model that is one of Cnet's best 5 monitors it does not have horizontal mounting connections in the back for easy hookup

Great Monitor (HUGE)


I think that Samsung makes some very nice screens for the money. They seem to have every bit as nice a image as NEC at a much lower price. We have several different models of Samsung monitors at our company and they all have functioned flawlessly.

This monitor is great I plan to order 2 more right now. The size of these monitors is absolutely huge. I love the finish the touch sensitive buttons are great. I even love the blue LEDs for the power indicator

None so far

Second purchase


Dual monitors, make sure you have a good enough video card for it. I do :)

Its an awesome monitor. I had one for myself and bought one as a gift for another. The monitor came and looked like it was dropped and barely worked, of course newegg right away took it back and sent me another. Newegg is awesome

It won't sing to me while I sleep

great especially for the price


The stand is not adjustable (no height, tilt or swivel) and puts the base of the monitor about 2.5" above the desk. If that works for you, this monitor is great. NOTE: it is 1920x1080, which is 1080P movie resolution. It is not 1920x1200, which is more...

Picture quality, contrast, color ; Advanced picture adjustments ; No dead pixels ; Fast refresh good for movies

Stand is not adjustable in any way

SAMSUNG 2494SW Glossy Black 24" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 50000:1 (1000:1)


Love these monitors except for the strange pixel issues. Definitely a great buy and the price is perfcet.

I bought two of these. The first one I got is perfect has no major problems. Everything looks amazing and full 1080P resolution

Has no HDMI connector but not a major con. The first monitor I purchased has one green stuck pixel which does not bother me much except on all white backgrounds. The second one has a dead pixel line at the very top center and on certain backgrounds...

Just Great


Hey, I'm a good customer, why didn't they send me a free one?

Beautiful picture at a reasonable price ; This was 2 replace my Samsung 226BW 22"monitor. started failing after 3.3 years (of course) ; I loved that monitor so i was worried about getting a new monitor that would be up 2 par with my last one. this i it...

Don't really care 4 the touch controls they don't seem 2 activate every time. But that's pretty minor since I don't have 2 adjust the monitor. If I did It's only one touch key to bring up the embedded Magic Bright selectable setting

good monitor, great price


Picture quality is great, both for text and photos, and no dead pixels. The stand holds this monitor up, but that's it. There is no tilt, swivel or height adjustment. The touch sensitive buttons on the bottom front right bezel work only about 75% of...

picture quality ; connections (d-sub & DVI) ; price

the stand ; touch buttons on front panel

Great monitor


I like the touch controls, though I have heard nags about them. I've deployed ~50 widescreens in the last year, from a number of vendors & nameplates. By far I am most satisfied with the Samsung units, and the 2494 is no exception.

Excellent workplace monitor - good color, low-to-no edge bleeding, solid blacks. Everything you'd expect out of a Samsung monitor in this price range

Stand leaves a little to be desired

Great Monitor


Girlfriend picked this up for me on sale from Newegg for i think $200. Really can't beat it for that price.

Great picture and great looking monitor

Nothing worth noting
