I just wanted to do a quick review of my brand new monitor: The Samsung SyncMaster S24B300 LED LCD
This 24″ LED LCD monitor is beautiful….really, it looks great. Here are the specs it is packing (From Samsung Site):
- 23.6″ (16 : 9) Screen Size
- LED Type
- 250 cd/m² Brightness
- Mega ∞ DCR (Static 1000 : 1) Contrast Ratio
- 1920 x 1080 Resolution
- 5 ms Response Time
- 170° / 160° Viewing Angle (Horizontal / Vertical)
- 16.7 M Color Support
- 1 HDMI & 1 D-Sub VGA
Here are a few sample pictures taken from my Galaxy Nexus. I also tossed in a few full screenshots of Diablo 3. These are not the best representation of the monitor, as you cannot see it up close for yourself….but this is easily the best monitor I have ever used.
The colours are very vibrant compared to other monitors. Images are sharp, and games and movies look amazing. It truly was a treat loading up a 1080P movie and watching it fullscreen. I don’t think I can ever watch any media less then 1080P HD ever again. The power and menu buttons on the bottom right of the bezel are touch which was nice. Keep in mind that I used to be on an old Dell 19″ 1280*1024 monitor, which I used for almost 4 years ( sad I know).
The only cons are the non-standard power connector (which shouldn’t be a problem unless you happen to lose the power cord) and the fact that the inputs have two options: HDMI, or VGA. There is no DVI or displayport on this monitor. I don’t see this as much of a downside since I had an HDMI cord laying around I could spare.
All in all if you are in the market, this is a wonderful monitor at a decent price. I paid $189 CAD for mine. If anyone has any questions about the monitor, or wants to see more/better pictures, just drop a comment :)
