Do not adjust your set...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung T24A550 24 inch Widescreen LED Monitor with Digital TV Tuner (Full HD 1080P, Dolby Digital Surround, 2xHDMI) - Gloss Black (Accessory)
...because no matter how many times you adjust the picture settings, or how you connect it to your PC, you aren't going to get the picture any better than 'washed out'. Bought this to accompany my new pc, but have sold it on to someone who will benefit from the TV Tuner, as I found myself going through a 10 min adjustment routine to get the picture better everytime I switched it on.
The monitor looks great on your desk as it is so thin and the case and stand are well designed. I'm not so sure if LED is a good choice however if you're after strong contrast and good colour reproduction. It seemed to me that everything had a bit of a pale blue tinge to it on this screen. Coupled with the fact that it renders html text badly (HDMI is known to do this, but it's only improved a little by using the VGA input) I'd say that this isn't good enough for this price range.

Sorry to hear your dismay. I have seen a number of people complain of bad IQ via a PC on Samusng monitors. It seems you have to set the monitor source to PC or something like that via the menu for the monitor to give its best for a PC connection. Hope this helps.

As D Deacon says, you have to adjust the settings. e.g. when selecting HDMI as the source in the menu, you then select 'name' and name the HDMI source 'PC' -- odd way of saying it admittedly, but it is in the instructions under 'connect to a PC'. I just installed one for my mother-in-law and have an earlier model myself, and the text is perfectly sharp, colours fine etc. And from then on I can select modes like text, internet or entertainment depending on what I'm doing. Perhaps more a case of ambiguous terminology than poor technology.

Did exactly that. In my view what you are describing as 'perfectly sharp, colours fine etc' are well below par for a monitor at this price. Bought a NEC at the same price and the difference is notable. Stand by my initial view of poor technology :)

Had initial problems with my MacBook Pro and a wishy-washy output. But as mentioned, do the following: press SOURCE [on remote] > select HDMI/DVI > press TOOLS > Edit Name > scroll down and select DVI PC. Bingo! A beautiful picture, what more could you want?
