~24” monitors with Full HD resolution and IPS-type (In Plane Switching or similar) panels are ubiquitous these days. Core image performance is generally quite similar between these products, with aesthetic differences, ports and other features being key differentiators. Samsung used their own PLS (Plane to Line Switching) panels in various products of this type over the years, the most recent being the S24F350FH. The Samsung S24R350 (LS24R350 with various regional suffixes, of the SR35 series) follows in the footsteps of this model and its predecessors, with a switch away from PLS to an IPS-type panel from another manufacturer. This makes some sense given Samsung’s recent focus being more on VA (Vertical Alignment) technologies and the large variety of IPS-type panels from other manufacturers. The monitor has a smart homely aesthetic, with a silver-coloured matte plastic bottom bezel and slim dual-stage bezels at the top and sides. These include a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen, plus a thin hard outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the bottom right as viewed from the front.
A 24” IPS-type panel with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution is employed. Accompanying specifications include a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° horizontal/vertical viewing angles and a matte anti-glare screen surface. A 75Hz refresh rate is supported, alongside Adaptive-Sync – including support for AMD FreeSync with a 48 – 75Hz variable refresh rate range. 8-bit colour is supported, whilst a flicker-free WLED backlight is used which offers ~sRGB colour space coverage and a 250 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. Low Blue Light (LBL) settings including “Eye Saver Mode” are included to enhance viewing comfort. The rear of the monitor is matte “dark blue grey” plastic throughout, with the included stand mounted towards the bottom. This offers tilt as the only ergonomic flexibility, although 75 x 75mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. The ports face backwards in a recessed area towards the bottom left. They’re very minimal and include an HDMI 1.4 port, VGA and DC power input (external ‘power brick’).
Further information can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is available for ~$130.
