Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM review

 

The Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM is a 24in LCD monitor that looks great.

Still the Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM is a great monitor at an average price - and that's a winning combination.

Sporting an awesome combination of style and functionality, the Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM is a fantastic Full HD display. Featuring HDMI input as well...

Fantastic contrast, sharp images, great blacks and rich colours, excellent design, HDMI input

Vertical viewing angles are a little off

Samsung's SyncMaster 2493 is an almost flawless 24in display. It renders motion excellently, has great contrast and colour reproduction and packs in an HDMI input and a resolution of 1920x1080. Whatever you're using your display for, this unit should...

Samsung 2693HM review: Samsung 2693HM

 

Samsung 2693HM

Very good performance, especially for movies; 360-degree rotation; unique buttonless OSD design; good price for such a large screen.

Flimsy, hollow plastic in back; cannot see or feel the OSD in dark; bad viewing angle from the bottom; overcalibrated "Cool" temperature setting.

The Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM proved itself to be an excellent overall performer, particularly during movie playback, and can be had for a fair price. Only a flimsy stand, an overcalibrated color-temperature setting, and a poor lower viewing angle...

Syncmaster 2493HM

 

The Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM looks great--and I'm not talking exclusively about the antiglare treatment or the crisp 1920-by-1200-pixel native resolution, which provides very good visual quality. The SyncMaster also sports sleek lines and a thin,...

Good design HDMI connectivity

Specs engraved in bezel Hard to see menu buttons

Still, this is a great monitor at an average price--and that's a winning combination

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM

 

A 42in plasma with a floating design

Nice colours, sharp image, well-implemented 100Hz mode

Some minor contrast issues, SD content had some predictable artefacts

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM 24 Inch LCD Monitor

 

To the casual observer, it would appear that LCD monitors are simultaneously getting bigger and cheaper. While this may be true for some panels, there is a point where size ...

Great value ; Lots of connectivity options ; Smooth video and gaming playback ; Aesthetically pleasing

Front controls extremely difficult to read ; TN panel not suitable for pro graphics work

The software package included with this panel is Samsung’s standard MagicTune suite. This utility allows you to access and configure all the OSD settings without ever touching the front controls. There's also some minor calibration tools, and some...

Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM Widescreen Monitor

 

The price of LCD screens has steadily declined and in the last few years, larger monitors are starting to become relatively affordable. This is especially evident in the 19", 20" and 22" categories, where we see a significant number of products in the...

Great Value ; High Brightness ; Good Response Time ; 4-way Adjustable Stand w/ USB Hub ; Ample Connectivity (VGA, DVI, HDMI) ; Good Looks and Build Quality

Mediocre Viewing Angles ; Unsuitable for professional graphics work (TN panel)

Performance Summary: Throughout our testing we found the Samsung 2493HM to be an excellent display. It performed acceptably in the multimedia tasks it was designed for an it also handled standard desktop tasks with aplomb. While the screen suffers from...
