  1. Hi guys,

    I bought the Samsung 2494 monitor that was listed in your Tech Deals and I love it.
    I was wondering why some web sites are full screen and some are not. I have it set at 1920x1080 & 60HZ.

    If you mean resolution and refresh rate, I tried changing them and was still the same. Other than that, what do you mean by "system setup"?

    Are you saying that some sites don't fill the monitor completely, leaving black borders?
    What browser are you running? What type of sites are you talking about?

    If the site is playing Flash, QuickTime, or other video player, the display will change according to the settings for that player, and how the content was coded (or shot) by the writer/producer.

    Unless you're talking about watching HDTV using the HDMI input on the monitor? Then it's a different explanation, but in any case, I do not believe the issue is the monitor.
