- The Samsung S24D390HL impressed us with its combination of colour quality, impressive default setup, keen responsiveness and overall value for money. The design wasn’t to everyone’s taste, though, and the included stand could be considered a bit flimsy (or wobbly) as well as ergonomically limited. The S24E390HL, as the model number suggests, is the follow-up to this model. Whilst stand adjustability remains just as limited, the design has changed to one that looks like it could be sturdier. We will be looking at such aesthetic and design aspects of the monitor as well as the all-important performance, putting it through its paces in a range of ‘real world’ tests.
- This model features a 60Hz 23.6” AD-PLS (Advanced Plane to Line Switching) panel, using the usual 6-bit + FRC dithering. This is handled very well by modern panels and shouldn’t be considered an issue for the vast majority of users. A 4ms grey to grey response time is specified, which is 1ms lower than that specified on the former model but should again be taken with a pinch of salt. Key ‘talking points’ of the specification have been highlighted in blue below.

Features and aesthetics:-
- The screen has a fairly unique design, with glossy black plastic bezels bordered by coloured Perspex. This Perspex border has a ‘cool ice alcohol’ accent, a so-called ‘Touch of Colour’. This is essentially a subtle grey-blue partially transparent addition to add unique visual flair to the screen. It is perhaps most noticeable in the central region of the bottom bezel, where it droops down to show the Samsung logo. The bezels are quite slender at the top and sides – around 12.5mm (0.49 inches) including the Perspex border. There is also a very slender panel border, barely half a mm along for the most part. This panel border was ever so slightly thicker on the right edge on our unit, just under 1mm. The chassis is designed in such a way as to minimise excess pressure on the panel and other screen components and help minimise uniformity issues across the screen. The backlight is located at the right edge so it doesn’t want to be pinching super-tightly here. As explored in more detail later, the screen surface is medium (or ‘relatively light’) matte anti-glare.
