Samsung SyncMaster XL24 and XL30 Monitors Review

 

Samsung SyncMaster XL20 caused a sensation back in the days, because Samsung was the first to introduce a monitor with LED backlighting and remarkable color gamut at an affordable price. It used to be the only solution like that for a while, but it...

Samsung XL24 LCD Monitor

 

A truly professional-grade LCD display with all the benefits of LED backlighting and tremendously accurate color response capability.

Excellent color reproduction out of the box; the color response can be calibrated for consistency; supports sRGB, Adobe RGB, and CMYK color schemes

The level of professionalism needed to justify the price might be the only real limiting factor

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Samsung XL24 review

 

Samsung isn't a brand that you'd usually associate with high-end monitors for colour-accurate design work, but its XL range is excellent.

After calibration, the Samsung XL24's output was both vibrant and subtle where needed - and around the best we've seen. The XL24 is pricey but, if you need colour accuracy, it's a winner.

nice monitor, bad software

 

SHAME on Samsung for selling such an awsome monitor with such buggy software! Not acceptable, I regret buying this monitor.

Very good picture quality. Pictures of sunsets look incredible, as does just about anything. But is the picture as accurate as Samsung claims it to be? Who knows

Natural Color Expert, the terrible calibration program for this monitor. It crashes, and does not calibrate this monitor correctly. At least some of the other preset modes look ok. If Samsung cant get their own software right, should you really trust...

Product Specifications

The XL 24 is a professional monitor that employs an LED backlight unit (BLU) to deliver critically accurate color. The huey technology allows perfect color to be assessed across the monitor and saves the calibration so that every person working on a project can see the same quality color. XL 24 is all that you need.
