I bought this monitor back when it was 250quid last year.

Honestly the best monitor I've had, can't fault it at all.

Cool. 1st review i've ever seen. ^^ what i could find from google was just saying that it was released in japan last december. :thinking: where did you buy it then?

whats the sound quality like from the internal speakers?
considering getting one of these for the bedroom to hook up to an upscaling dvd player. not expecting miracles from them, but if they are anywhere near as poor as the edge10 monitor speakers i bought recently, i'll give it a miss

but surely with it being 1920*1200 there will be black lines/boxes at the top and bottom of the screen?

cold

nice.

WHAT A FOOL.......

Not sure if Ebuyer are wrong or Engadget, but it looks like it's actually a 1080p (x1080 not x1200) monitor:
engadget.com/200…cd/

Good deal though!

Lool how stupid can you be. -__-

actually, that's exactly what the problem WOULDN'T be, being 1920x1200 (i.e. 16:10 NOT 16:9) it would stretch and distort the image on a PS3 and on a Xbox 360 if using HDMI but you'll be fine if using VGA as an update gave support for 16:10 monitors

good monitor, h&r added but I personally wouldn't suggest this for 360 or PS3 use (esp PS3)

edit: if this actually is 16:9 monitor then you won't have the problems above so ignore

Yea, that what I was thinking too but after some research i believe its and error from eBuyer and it's 1920 X 1080 instead of 1920 X 1200. as above it also stated it's 16:9 not 16:10 could some1 phone up ebuyer and ask about it b4 purchase. :thumbsup:

what's the difference from HS and HM? play.com/PC/…nre

I can only notice the weight and brightness (and the brightness is probably a mistake, both are most likely 400)

Banned

Sigh.

1080p doesnt necessarily mean it has 1080 lines. It means its capable of displaying 1080p, which means it has at least 1080 lines. Although with the looks at it, this monitor does have a 1920x1080 display.

Also, +1 lol at the **Offensive comment removed ** who voted cold because he thinks there will be 'black lines' around the picture. rofl.

Samsung's site says this model is a 16:9 (1920 X 1080) (Well I found it under the name of 2494HM [because could not find it as "hs" not as title or ebuyer states] - worth checking out )~

Should be fine with ya PS3's etc.
Oh and there's nothing wrong with the black lines on the top and bottom of a 1920 X 1200 display for stuff thats meant to be seen at 16:9 ratio, unless you like your image all stretched and spasmed across the page. Pixel mapping ftw =D

Oh, Pretty good deal for a 24inch, decent inputs, and if you like your brands

oh noes, what a waste of 120 pixels

lol. initially i thought this deal would be well on top of the roof as it is comparable with Dell S2409W and better price too. anyway eBuyer has only got around 150 stocks left.

]http//ww…to/

to all the moaners from previous 24" bargains, you see, this is more like what you have to pay for a large one with DVi and HDMI voted hot

Now here is my question: Which would be better (if at all) this one, or the iiyama E2407HDS that is on here quite a lot. Both have DVI and HDMI, and I cant really find much feature wise to distinguish them...

Opinions?

Original Poster

I believe IIyama 24" is quite a decent monitor as well but not sure it has a inbuilt speaker? hmm, and which brand do you prefer? Samsung or IIyama?

Anyone know if you can swing this one around so it can be viewed in portrait too?

what type of panel does this monitor have? any info on viewing angles etc?

The extra specs on the site show it can be rotated, and has VESA mount holes.

It's more than likely a TN panel for that price.

I'd like to know this as well :thumbsup:

This looks the same as my dell 24" widescreen spec, prob is the same. I paid £250 a year ago for mine.

I got the IIyama prolite E2607WS and i love it. 1080x1200 I use the built-in speakers, and sounds great imo

Aww this is a bargain. I love my Samsung 22" but it costs me £205 a while ago and can only do 1680x1050 :-D and has no HDMI.

Anyone know if this model has an headphone port?

So glad I got my SP2309 refunded.. gonna get this instead. Apparentely this uses the FHD Samsung panel (M236H1-L01) which has 120hz refresh rate - so if you want Stereoscopic 3D compatibility, this is the way to go. Have some H&R ;-)

Someone tested one here ]http//fo…tml

For use with Nvidia vision, would'nt mind these glases :w00t:

In answer to your question, the Samsung 2494HS has two headphones style (3.5mm) audio jacks, one for audio in and one for out. If memory serves me correctly, I believe this was one of the biggest limitations of the iiyama E2407HDS as those who wanted to hook up there 360s and PS3s via HDMI, could not then connect their amps or speakers to the monitor.

I have tried to research as many sources about this neat 'little' monitor and I could not find many pictures, however I came across the following site, which although in Japanese (think its Japanese) contains some really useful pictures that might help some of you make a more informed decision (also contains pics of the audio in and out jacks)

]http//16…902

I had been holding out for the Viewsonic VX2433wm (]http//ww…htm) to drop in price, but with its great spec and price, I have just placed an order for the Samsung 2494HS :w00t:

Thanks for bringing this to our attention OP.

Heat added :thumbsup:.

Just bought one, being delivered tomorrow (hopefully) will let you know what its like...

I couldn't see it anywhere: is this matte or glossy?

TIA

Thanks :), would love to know:

1. The audio input/output if any (I'm guessing it'll have both)

2. If it can do more than 60Hz (I'm guessing it will not be able to, despite what has been said before)

3. If the stand can do anything else apart from tilt & swivel (my guess is that it will not be able to do more)

Lacero, if not specified, it's most likely matte.

I could get a BenQ G2400W (24") which also has DVI and HDMI from play for £161.49 (using the RAC code), would the Samsung be worth the extra 20 odd quid? need a new monitor but unsure which to go for.

thanks.

A higher refresh rate can actually make moving pictures worse, assuming your computer is still feeding it at 60Hz.

If you're playing a 24fps HD video (most BluRays) then you need 120Hz for perfect playback. Also good for 30fps and 60fps uses, and if it also supports 100Hz, 25fps and 50fps.

For £185 this monitor seems pretty darn funky. I would need to know if it supports input at 120Hz for future stereoscopic applications, but to be honest I probably won't ever use it in this configuration.

Three inputs is nice as well. I was holding out for a monitor with composite in as well, so I could attach my old PS2, but these monitors are few and far between, or lack other features. It's not like I have touched it in months either... Might get this monitor later this year once I've sorted out my next computer system, it's moved into the top 3 options.
