Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM DVI / HDMI 24-in LCD Monitor


I have been using the Samsung SyncMaster with my test system for about two weeks now. Before I get into general usage, I first took a visit to the Lagom LCD Monitor Test Page . Rutledge used this resource before during a monitor review and I decided to...

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Great monitor for the price


I wanted to match my 2343bwx (2048x1152) res monitor, but since there were only refurbs for more that the original cost I went with this. I couldn't be happier for the price.

Price, Contrast, inputs, resolution. Overall the colors are pretty darn good, the blacks are pretty true

Volume control is a pain, but if you don't change it a lot you're fine. I don't use the internal speakers, but my PS3 uses HDMI and I run that to my speakers routed through the monitor. If you have volume on the speakers, then it's much more convenient...
