SyncMaster FX2490HD.jpgIf you haven’t got the cash (or the space) for both a high-end PC monitor and HD TV, Samsung may have an all-in-one solution to suite your needs in the shape of the SyncMaster FX2490HD.

Doubling up as both a PC monitor and 1080p high-def TV, the SyncMaster FX2490HD squeezes in a TV tuner alongside two HDMI inputs, D-Sub and a SCART socket.

At 24 inches it’s a great size for a PC monitor and a decent-sized secondary TV, featuring a 5ms response time, 250 nits of brightness and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. The set also includes a USB port for media playback, as well as support for 7.1 channel Dolby Digital and DTS audio.

Due for release in both the US and Europe later this month, it seems a tidy little deal at $540 (£339).
