We were however, very impressed with the accuracy of the colours reproduced. The measured output curves remained almost unchanged after calibration, as they were already pretty much spot on. Cheap TV monitors often produce rather unconvincing images when actually watching TV. The Samsung P2370HD, on the other hand, does an excellent job.

The studio flat monitor of choice?

Unfortunately there’s some visible backlight bleed apparent when viewing dark scenes. This can be helped somewhat by activating the dynamic contrast option, but many users will find the constant and rather obvious increasing and decreasing of the backlight level quite distracting. Despite this quibble, we found the display quality to be generally very good indeed.

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

The Samsung 2370HD is a good-looking and generally rather impressive TV/monitor. It lacks some desirable features, such as picture-in-picture support or multiple HDMI sockets, but overall it’s a great choice for a small flat or bedroom where there might not be room for both a second TV and a PC. ®
