>> Hi. This is Eric Franklin from CNET.com and today, I wanna give you a true first look at the Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM. Let me try something different and give you a true out-of -the-box experience and we haven't even opened the box. So, it should be pretty exciting. Let's take a look. ^M00:00:20 [ Music ] ^M00:00:43
>> First off, what we notice is that the rotation is 360 degrees which is something I haven't seen yet in a display. Well actually, a light cover display looks from the back with the Samsung logo on the back, then it also pivots 90 degrees like so. The display actually tilts back about 30 or 35 degrees. It's like the height is adjustable by a couple of inches. The foot stand seems to be pretty stable. It doesn't wobble too much when you push it around. It's on this Lazy Susan kinda rotation base here. The bezel is kinda glossy and already attracting many, many, many fingerprints. Okay. I notice that there is an HTMi in, DVI in, and a VGA port labeled RGBn, Audio in and Audio out. All right. Now, that I've actually got the monitor turned on, we see that the OSD -- actually, there are no OSD buttons, just this like kinda touch sensitive panel here. We're actually gonna check it out for the first time right now. Let's see. We have some typical OSD functions here, Brightness, Contrast, some color stuff. We don't see any presets though so far but there could be in there. It could be hidden in there somewhere. What we know is when we're trying to watch a trailer to the Watchman is that the screen kept blacking out. We're not really sure what feature this is. It's some kind of a movie-watching feature or something like that, but we're gonna get back to you when we do the full review. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin and I hope you enjoyed this out-of -the-box first look at the Samsung SyncMaster 2693HM. For more details, check out the review which should be coming in a couple of weeks. [ Music ]
>> Welcome back to the First Look video. I'm gonna tell you a story about the Samsung SyncMaster, oh, yeah, this time. Mom? Dad? I'm really scared. I'm really scared.
The Samsung SyncMaster F2380 is a well-designed monitor with good performance that skimps on connection options.
The Samsung SyncMaster 940BF delivers a clear, vivid picture for games and DVDs, but overall we found it average; other monitors offer more adjustability and features and better performance for less.
With tons of connection options, great performance, and useful features like an HDTV tuner, the Samsung SyncMaster T240HD display is an excellent bargain.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD is a great choice for those looking for a 23-inch monitor-HDTV combo.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD is a great choice for those looking for a 27-inch monitor-HDTV combo.
We found nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung SyncMaster 204T, a 20-inch LCD with an attractive design, decent image quality, and useful software, but other monitors offer more features for the price.
With more features and better movie performance, the Samsung SyncMaster PX2370 improves--in most areas--on one of the best monitors we've ever reviewed.
The Samsung SyncMaster P2450h is a decent general use monitor, but better monitors are available.
The Samsung SyncMaster BX2350 is a great monitor that is hampered by an overzealous backlight.
The Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD is a 24-inch HDTV doubling as a monitor for a low price.
