The stand. Some might like it but I just can’t muster up enough like. The matte display looks wonderful to my eyes but the bezels seem to be unnecessarily thick thanks to the useless transparent design sticking out.
Thanks to the integrated TV tuner the FX2490HD can be used as a LCD TV as well. But I think it is unnecessary. I am fairly sure most of us who watch TV do it not via a tuner but through things like iTunes, cable, IPTV, PlayStation, Xbox, etc. I think a HDMI connection is enough. Brown? Source: Engadget
