REVIEW: Samsung 2493HM Part 3
For a 24-inch model with a TN panel the pivot mode which allows the monitor to be turned 90 degrees into portrait mode is not exactly usual. This may be one of the "High-end Features" which are advertised by Samsung.
In pivot setting, the user should be careful when lowering the monitor so that the high-gloss base and frame are not scratched.
In the highest position, the distance between the table and the monitor is 8,5 cm. In the lowest position, the exterior touches the base with a distance of about 2 cm to the table.
When the screen is being set up, there is no mechanism of the monitor to help, since there are no stopping points. This would be half as wild if the height adjustment mechanism did not have an additional 3 mm of scope sideways.
The height adjustment mechanism seen from above. The space can be found in the circle.
The monitor can be tilted across a pleasantly large range from 5° forwards to 25° backwards, whereby the joint gives the impression of solidity. It is firm, but not too stiff.
On the right hand side of the base is the USB2.0 hub with two connectors. This solution is not optimal for a few reasons, since in lower monitor positions, the connectors are very hard to reach and at the same time, the cables stand out noticeably from the base and spoil the design. Although the base is not exactly slim, no cable routing solution has been integrated. The elegant design is thus spoiled by several loose cables.
Two additional USB ports, as can be found on the Samsung 245T, would certainly have been possible given the space available.
The tilting of the monitor can be adjusted freely within a range of -5°, forwards, to 25° backwards.
The back, which is made of matte plastic, is simple, but is visibly increased in quality by the glossy base. The generously sized ventilation slots, through which the backlight shines only at individual points, are visible here. The heat created is dispersed very well.
In the centre, the four screws for the 200 mm x 100 mm VESA mount can be seen, with which the base can also be removed completely, whereby the aforementioned USB hub is of course also removed.
The Samsung Logo has been placed very centrally on the back glossy section of the base and cannot be overlooked. A carrying handle has not been integrated into the exterior.
The back of the monitor. Here, matte black is disrupted only through the contrast with the glossy base.
