Samsung presents two new curved monitors
Samsung Electronics has presented two new company products – the CF591 and CF390 monitors. They have something in common – both models come with curved displays and promise excellent image quality.
The two new monitors feature 1800R curves, which translate to a curvature radius of 1800 mm, and improved image quality that delivers an optimal presentation that matches the shape of the human eye. The CF591 model features a 27-inch display, while the CF390 is available with 23.6-inch and 27-inch displays. In all cases the new monitors work at Full HD resolution.
“As consumers seek a more pleasurable and immersive viewing experience – whether at work or at play – curved monitors can take their experience to the next level,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The release of our cutting-edge curved displays signifies our commitment to continuous innovation and delivering the best viewing experience in any environment.”
The CF390 and CF591 models support AMD’s Freesync technology that eliminates frame tearing and include Samsung’s Vertical Alignment technology. The viewing angles in both cases are 178-degree, while the static contrast ratio is 3000:1. The monitors also feature maximum brightness of 250 cd/m² and 4 ms of response time. There’s a D-Sub port in all models but there are slight differences now – the CF591 monitor covers 119 per cent of the Adobe sRGB color space and includes two 5W built-in speakers as well as a single Display Port 1.2 and two HDMI 1.4 ports. The CF390 model has just a single HDMI port.
In Europe, Asia and the United States the new Samsung monitors will be available in March with wider market availability expected in April. No word on pricing, though.
