REVIEW: Samsung P2450H Part 2
The monitor has a matte screen and is surrounded by gleaming plastic. In addition, a 4 mm thick transparent plastic frame has been integrated on the front and 11 mm towards the back.

A wine-red application has been poured into the centre of each side of the frame and is more or less pronounced in the transparent section depending on the backlight. Samsung refers to this colouring as Rose Black (Touch of Color design). The frame is 22 mm wide on the left and right and at the top and is 35 mm wide at the bottom. The Samsung logo is printed in white on the bottom frame and the model number can be found in a light grey colour at the top left hand side, with the contrast ratio of 70.000:1 indicated in the same shade.
The frame shimmers a reddish colour in particular lighting.
When the monitor is switched off, the buttons are also inconspicuous and are only indicated by means of five dots and the on/off button. The transparent frame can be distracting in dual monitor usage because of the 8mm gap that arises, since light can shine through this from the back. The content of the display is also reflected on the glossy surface.

At first glance, the outer appearance of the monitor can be considered successful, but after a few minutes, the first dust particles can be seen, as well as every fingerprint. The surface also seems to be very susceptible to scratches. However, when the monitor is in use, this should no longer be important, since the monitor is not touched much because its adjustability is limited. Nonetheless, the user will have to use the dust cloth often. The dust and fingerprints shown in the photos were intentionally not retouched and are intended to show what disadvantages a glossy surface may bring.
The base is an oval shape with measurements of 27,5 cm and almost 19 cm and has not been weighted additionally. The connecting section is screwed into the base and slotted into the monitor, which can be done without the manual. Removing the base once more is less simple, since the base locks into place on the monitor, but when the base is being removed, there is an option to release the catch and therefore, only some strength is needed. Overall, the base is a somewhat wobbly feature if the monitor is not standing on the desk without disturbance. The touch of a button is enough to begin the model swinging.
