Samsung’s TV Monitors Combine Best of Both

By Super User

Samsung’s newest TVs, the 24″ T24D310ES LED and 28″ T28D310ES LED, aim to cover all the ways in which users can receive content: be it broadcast TV, PC or console games, Blu-ray films, an external HDD or streamed via the internet.

The ‘TV monitors’ feature a built-in triple tuner (DVB-T/-C/-S2), to receive terrestrial, cable or satellite programming. They also have an EPG and a picture-in-picture option, so users can view two content sources at once. To support the viewing of sporting content, the products have a special Sport Mode, which optimises picture and sound quality. Sport Mode also divides the screen into nine separate panes: users can zoom in on each of these image sections individually.

Both TVs feature two 5W speakers and HDMI (x2), component, composite, USB and Scart ports, as well as a CI+ slot. The 28″ adds a VGA input. They have 1366 x 768 resolution and use a VA panel, with a 1,200:1 contrast ratio; 178 deg viewing angles; and an 8ms response time. Brightness is 250 cd/m² on the 24″ and 300 cd/m² on the 28″.

Both TVs are available in Germany now, for €175 (24″) and €220 (28″), ex VAT.
