Samsung adds several more curved monitors
Computer monitors have evolved along with computer hardware – in the dark ages of computing (read 30+ years ago) we had monochrome monitors, which looked like a TV set, then we got black-and-white only monitors, then color ones and finally the latest craze – curved monitors, which are said to further improve the visuals you get when looking at them. You may not feel it yet but the push to migrate to a curved monitor has already started – manufacturers release more and more curved displays and one day they will be the only ones to remain on the market.
The latest proof to this claim comes from South Korea where Samsung has added five new curved monitors to its product line. The new displays are called SE510C (two models – 23.5-inch and 27-inch), SE591C (27-inch), SE790C (29-inch) and SE590C (31.5-inch). There is something for everyone here so apart from the obvious different display sizes the monitors come with different technologies too. Thus the smaller and cheaper SE510C and SE591C models come with a 4000R radius curvature, while the larger and clearly more expensive SE790C and SE590C models come with a 3000R curvature, which Samsung says is best in class. The display resolution varies as well – all models, except the SE790C, come with standard Full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels, while the SE790C works at 2560 x 1080 pixels. Again, the SE590C comes with a contrast ratio of 5000:1, while all other models come with contrast ratios of 3000:1. The response time is the same everywhere, though, and it is 4 ms. Finally all new models come with a new Samsung technology that reduces harmful effects of blue light during extended periods of use.
