Summary: I guess its the advancing years, and the need to again visit the opticians but I felt I had to upgrade my three side by side 19 inch HP LCD screens which have served well for a number of years. These Samsung screens are lovely! 24 inch certainly makes a difference, and have pretty thin, black bezels (about 14mm wide) which help with viewing the screens in their side-by-side setup.
Summary: It took me 3 attempts to find the format I needed. The first were 1920 x 1080 wide screen. completely unsuitable for my SLR pics but the Samsung S24C450 is perfect. Picture clarity is outstanding and the monitor adjustability is very good - tilt, swivel and vertical adjustment is easy and smooth. I diregarded the "knockers" and am very pleased I did!
Summary: Bright and good picture quality. For this price you really couldn't ask for more. If there is a small minor quibble is that the stand is flexible to allow for easy rotation but it also means that when you go to press the on button, it wobbles a little, but it is no big deal.
Summary: Although this monitor is fairly cheap for what it is, its performance is very poor. Despite the "Right Angle" option, the viewing angle is critical and it is almost impossible to get a viewing position that doesn't compromise part of the screen. Don't even consider it if you want to do anything with graphics. It is particularly bad when operating in a portrait orientation. In addition, the VGA input is of poor quality (DVI-D is okay).
