Samsung Develops A (Potentially) More Affordable Curved Monitor

Curved monitors are a lot like curved TVs. They're exciting, neat and a real beauty to look at. However, they are also ridiculously expensive...like buy a new curved monitors or by a new car expensive. Samsung realizes this and is attempting to change it by making curved monitors more affordable. This is an extremely smart business model, especially during a time when the technology is relatively new. With all the tech coming out in this market being the same, the only thing you can really do to set yourself apart is give consumers something that makes them chose your product over another. In Samsung's case, that thing is price.

The company has built its new S27D590CS monitor with a VA panel that provides vertical and horizontal viewing angles of 178 degrees along with an impressive 350 cd/m2 brightness. In addition to that, this monitor also has contrast ratio of 3000:1 and a gray to gray response time of 4ms while also covering most of the sRGB color space. A "Game Mode" feature is also included, which adjusts the gamma and saturation settings so that it is easier to make out detail in dark scenes. 

According to Samsung, the curved design will create a sort of 3D effect. The company also stated that, due to the curvature of the screen images may appear to have a sense of depth. This sounds a little far fetched but it is quite possible that the screen will offer a truly immersive experience. Samsung has also fitted the monitor with DisplayPort, VGA and HDMI inputs in addition to a 3.5mm audio jack for the 5-watt speakers. A VESA mount is also included along with controls that are accessible form the rear of the monitor, giving the monitor a very nice aesthetic.  

Samsung has yet to talk specifics on the actual price of the monitor, though it will probably cast a lot more than your average monitor. The one thing the monitor has going for it in terms of pricing is the resolution. This curved monitor only has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution. Most curved computer monitors have higher resolutions with most coming out with 4K resolutions. So while this monitor may be more expensive than most full HD monitors it will most likely be less expensive than any other curved monitor on the market.
