We accept the argument for the ‘need’ to have curved TV, but do we really need a display that is so close to our faces, like a computer monitor, to be ultra-wide and curved as well? Apparently, we do, because desk-bound folks also needs to experience the ultimate in immersive and comfortable viewing. Sammy will be showing off the SE790C Curved Monitor, which will be available in 29 and 34 inches, along with a 32-inch SE590C curved display. Those, along with the 24 and 27 inches SE510C and the TV-ready 27-inch TD590C, Samsung is prepping to push curved monitors into the mainstream market. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be a 27-inch Curved All-In-One PC too, destined to hit the market this January. Yup. Looks like the curved display revolution is to continue through to 2015, or at least for the better part of 2015.
If you are in the market for an eye-watering ‘immersive’ desktop experience, then I am sure you will embrace what the 34-inch variant of the SE790C has to offer. This ginormous curved monitor is touting an ultra-wide quad high-definition resolution (Ultra-WQHD, 3,440 x 1,440 pixels) and because of its curvature radius of 3,000mm, you can be sure you will be viewing that high-resolution goodness sans the distortion which translates to less eye strain and enhanced viewing comfort. Well, you must be staring at the display for a really long, long time to be able to feel the strain, which in any case if you do, you might want to give this beauty a thought.
Other worthy mentions include 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 typical brightness, 178 degrees viewing angle, Picture-by-Picture and Picture-in-Picture 2.0 functions, USB 3.0 ports, built-in 7W dual stereo speakers, and hidden VESA bracket support. No word on when it will be available, neither was the price disclosed. Continue reading for a few more look.
