5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Great price for a wide screen. Awesome contrast and brightness. Great for movies, gaming etc. Nice responsive buttons (touch). Doesn't really attract finger prints

Cons: No HDMI and only one port (each) for VGA and DVI.

Other Thoughts: Brought this monitor at BJ Wholesale store (sorry newegg), I actually brought the last one, which was a display monitor that was on 24/7 for 6 months. Gave me a discount which I was happy with. This monitor works great even for a used one. The screen is nice and wide, and the settings that they have for internet, gaming etc are pretty good. My only hassle was the fact that there is only one port each for DVI and VGA and no hdmi. Other than that its a really good monitor. I have it for 3 years and counting. I even use it for my ps3 because my flatscreen kinda broke. Also I found this out after three freaking tilts...yea no joke. It tilts! haha

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor (HUGE)

Pros: This monitor is great I plan to order 2 more right now. The size of these monitors is absolutely huge. I love the finish the touch sensitive buttons are great. I even love the blue LEDs for the power indicator

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I think that Samsung makes some very nice screens for the money. They seem to have every bit as nice a image as NEC at a much lower price. We have several different models of Samsung monitors at our company and they all have functioned flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsSecond purchase

Pros: Its an awesome monitor. I had one for myself and bought one as a gift for another. The monitor came and looked like it was dropped and barely worked, of course newegg right away took it back and sent me another. Newegg is awesome!

Cons: It won't sing to me while I sleep

Other Thoughts: Dual monitors, make sure you have a good enough video card for it. I do :)

5 out of 5 eggsgreat especially for the price

Pros: Picture quality, contrast, color
Advanced picture adjustments
No dead pixels
Fast refresh good for movies

Cons: Stand is not adjustable in any way

Other Thoughts: The stand is not adjustable (no height, tilt or swivel) and puts the base of the monitor about 2.5" above the desk.
If that works for you, this monitor is great.
NOTE: it is 1920x1080, which is 1080P movie resolution.
It is not 1920x1200, which is more common for computer monitors.
But it works great in either application.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought two of these. The first one I got is perfect has no major problems. Everything looks amazing and full 1080P resolution.

Cons: Has no HDMI connector but not a major con. The first monitor I purchased has one green stuck pixel which does not bother me much except on all white backgrounds. The second one has a dead pixel line at the very top center and on certain backgrounds there are tons of green stuck pixels probably 50+ scattered all over the place and they flash. I have not RMA'd it yet but definitely will soon.

Other Thoughts: Love these monitors except for the strange pixel issues. Definitely a great buy and the price is perfcet.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Great

Pros: Beautiful picture at a reasonable price.
This was 2 replace my Samsung 226BW 22"monitor. started failing after 3.3 years (of course).
I loved that monitor so i was worried about getting a new monitor that would be up 2 par with my last one. this i it.
Beautiful picture nice 24 " monitor

Cons: Don't really care 4 the touch controls they don't seem 2 activate every time. But that's pretty minor since I don't have 2 adjust the monitor. If I did It's only one touch key to bring up the embedded Magic Bright selectable setting.

Other Thoughts: Hey, I'm a good customer, why didn't they send me a free one?

4 out of 5 eggsgood monitor, great price

Pros: picture quality
connections (d-sub & DVI)

Cons: the stand
touch buttons on front panel

Other Thoughts: Picture quality is great, both for text and photos, and no dead pixels.
The stand holds this monitor up, but that's it. There is no tilt, swivel or height adjustment.
The touch sensitive buttons on the bottom front right bezel work only about 75% of the time I touch them.
Overall, unbeatable value for the price, but if you need tilt/swivel/height you are out of luck.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Excellent workplace monitor - good color, low-to-no edge bleeding, solid blacks. Everything you'd expect out of a Samsung monitor in this price range.

Cons: Stand leaves a little to be desired.

Other Thoughts: I like the touch controls, though I have heard nags about them. I've deployed ~50 widescreens in the last year, from a number of vendors & nameplates. By far I am most satisfied with the Samsung units, and the 2494 is no exception.
