Samsung 2463UW LCD MonitorJan 17th, 2009 | By Simon
Having a 24 inch monitor with 1920 x 1200 resolution just screams for hardcore gaming and movie watching.
With such a large resolution, text can get pretty small, but it is still legible even from a few feet. The current computer system I am using is not very up to date, so gaming on this monitor would not do much justice.
But luckily I have a Playstation 3 (HDMI!) that I can use to fully demonstrate the glory of a monitor this size.
Wipeout HD is one of the best examples of 1080p goodness. All textures were very detailed, and lines were sharp as a knife.
Over the past month, this monitor has brightened up my room and has made the most out of my new console. Playing games and watching movies in full 1080p resolution looked amazing and really impressed any guests I had over. There was no apparent ghosting that I could see. The built-in speakers are very convenient if you have limited desk space, but are not very good due to the small 1.5W drivers, but most gamers use headphones or dedicated speakers.
One gripe I had was the control panel. The touch activated controls sometimes feel unresponsive, although the monitor beeps when a button is pressed which helps a bit. Actual buttons would have been a better choice.
