Pro Excellent image quality with great color reproduction, suitable for graphical work
The VA panel is produced by Samsung and offers a couple of advantages compared to TN-panels. The image quality is excellent with vibrant colors due to the VA's panel natural higher color reproduction and a good contrast ratio of 3000:1.
Pro Curved display increases visual workspace
The C24F390FHU is curved and is angled similar to the curves of the human eye. Points on the screen are spread more evenly across your eyes, which increases your visual workspace at a normal distance and can reduce eyestrain.
Pro Works well in brightly lit rooms
The C23F390FHU features an anti-glare panel, which significantly reduces or eliminates reflections, loss of clarity due to light, fingerprints and smudges.
Pro Looks great from every angle
An advantage of the VA-panel is the maximum range of the viewing angles. The monitor looks great from every horizontal and vertical viewing angle and color shifting (distortion of colors) doesn't occur.
Pro Blue light filter reduces eyestrain
Samsung has used its own measures to filter out and eliminate the amount of blue light emitted from the screen if needed and requested. Blue light has been proven to decrease sleep quality; this feature is especially helpful when used during the night.
Pro Mirrored finish doesn't attract fingerprints
Despite the glossy, mirrored finish of the C23F390FHU's frame, it does not attract fingerprints and smudges keeping the enclosure clean.
Con No built-in speakers
There are no small speakers built-in for normal use, the use of additional speakers or headphones is necessary.
Con Build quality isn't optimal, feels a bit wobbly
Although Samsung hasn't chosen cheap plastic materials, the monitor does feel a bit wobbly around the neck-area, which may result in accidental sliding.
Con Lack of DisplayPort or DVI ports limits connectivity
The C24390FHU doesn't have a DisplayPort input, a relatively new connection standard that's widespread among recent graphical cards. The older, digital DVI-port isn't supported either.
Con Slower response time makes it less ideal for gaming
The response time for the screen is limited at 4 ms, which is significantly slower than some other monitors. This makes the C24390FHU less ideal for gaming situations that require fast-paced input.
Con Refresh rate limited to 60Hz not great for fast-paced action
