As usual Samsung has gone for a design with a glossy black bezel. Finger marks do tend to show up on it. They are particularly visible around the menu buttons that are also touch activated. Difficult not to leave your prints on the bezel then.
If you use the HDMI socket to link your screen up, you will need to disactivat the AV function that will adversely affect the display otherwise.
The contrast ratio is just as good at over 1000 : 1 when the average is around 750 : 1. The 2494HM has scored faultlessly so far then.
Announced as a 5 ms, we were hardly expecting anything spectacular in terms of responsiveness. As well as confirming this, the tests highlighted some slight reverse ghosting. This is astonishing because this phenomenon is usually only seen on more responsive screens (quoted at 2 ms). Reverse ghosting gives images not of the same but the opposite colour. For example a black object will be followed by a white cloud, a blue object by red etc.
This screen is therefore much better adapted to office documents than rapid games such as FPS (Quake, Unreal…).
