Good monitor, spoiled by hum,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung P2450H 24-inch Widescreen Full HD 1920 x 1080p Monitor (2ms, HDMI, Rose Red) (Personal Computers)
I bought a Samsung monitor many years ago, my first flat-screen after using a CRT. It had a problem - when the brightness was turned down, the screen emitted a high-pitched squealing noise, low in volume, but very distracting. After a few email exchanges, Samsung agreed to refund my money. However, I got the impression that they thought I was some sort of freak.
All these years later, I am sorry to say that a similar problem exists with the new Samsung P2450H 24" monitor that I have just bought. I like a dimly lit screen, so the first thing I do is to turn the brightness down. On this model, as soon as I turn the brightness down past 30%, the screen begins to make a humming noise. The lower the brightness, the louder the hum. It's annoying for me, as I work in a very quiet room (not an office), so the noise is very noticeable, so much so that I shall be selling this monitor very soon. (There's nothing else wrong with it.)
It appears that Samsung have not resolved whatever problem persists with their monitors. In the interim I have had two Iiyama monitors, which have not had any problems with noise.
Sorry, Samsung, I cannot live with this. People who like a very bright screen will not be affected, of course, but I still think that this is a serious design flaw.
Otherwise, the monitor is ok, although it did not "remember" which inputs were in use (2 out of the 3), so you still have to manually select the other input even when one of them is removed (I use a KVM switch).
I am returning this to Amazon for a refund.

I found I couldn't live with it either, I put brightness on 100% and lower it on windows (nvidia drivers and in options for full screen programs).
Shouldn't have to but it's a work around..
