Summary: I bought this product because the view-able area is bigger than recent models. Touch switch is great. Auto screen blanking is good. Initial turn on screen response appears a bit slow. This product would be essential to older models of computers.
Summary: Comments about Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM Widescreen LCD Monitor: I just bought a new gaming PC and wanted the right monitor to complement the system. I was happy with 20" Apple Cinema display, but wanted something bigger. After doing some research, I came across this particular monitor. I was comparing this monitor with Samsung's 245T and was surprised to find out that this monitor outperformed the 245T and was roughly half the price.

I use this monitor for gaming only and so far it's amazing.
Gorgeous monitor. 24 diagonal inches of eye candy.

Summary: What can I say? This monitor is AWESOME! This is the first time I ever had to push the monitor BACK. I'm used to leaning forward to get close to the screen but not with this bad boy. Backlighting appears totally consistent all over its huge area. I'm pushing the beast with a beast of a double-stack graphics card too. The stand is great because it is so adjustable in height, tilt and rotation.
Summary: Great Monitor... no dead pixels, great ratio, Great Viewing range, good brightness(but had to turn auto brightness off) good stand, good inputs. It does get a little hot, and the buttons are impossible to see while the monitor is on, but the touch interface added a "cool factor" Overall.... don't buy that dell you were looking at..
Summary: I upgraded from a Samsung 2253BW 22" to this and I love it! The picture quality is amazing, I can play all my PC games at 1920x1200. The HDMI input and built-in speakers are a nice touch. When I ordered this from Amazon it came with free shipping to Alaska, Newegg would of charged me around $100. The monitor came pre-built in the box, it was very easy to setup. I just had to re-arrange my desk because it was so big compared to my previous LCD lol.
Summary: I mostly use it for office work, no gaming experience. It's connected to a Macbook Pro. Incredible resolution. Very stylish design. The one negative is the touch sensitive brightness/contrast and volume controls. Unless there is light directly on the display, it can be difficult to see the "buttons". It takes getting used to.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare
