PC monitor and HDTV technology have been converging in recent years. The new Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD takes that trend to its logic conclusion. Superficially, it's a pretty ordinary 24-inch PC monitor, albeit a snazzy-looking example with an LED...

Si l'on s'en tient à ses fonctions TV, le FX2490HD est incontestablement une référence. Malheureusement, Samsung a trop négligé le rendu des couleurs pour lui permettre d'accéder aux 5...
