Samsung Series 9 monitor (S27A970) set for CES debut
With CES 2012 just a few days away from kicking off, it was expected that the big companies would start to preview their wares. The Samsung Series 9 monitor is a great example, delivering a 27-inch high-colour screen in an amazing design. Will it win awards at this year’s show, read on to find out why we think it deserves to.
Samsung has been the top-selling monitor manufacturer for the last five years running and the company is claiming this latest model builds on the legacy, to the extent it includes its exclusive Natural ColourExpert technology.
The Series 9 monitor comes with professional-grade Plane Line Switching (PLS) panel technology, which allows for the most accurate colour matching possible. Samsung is claiming the panel can readily support up to one billion different colours accurately.
When it comes to tech specs, you’ll be able to make the most of its quad high-definition (QHD) resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, which is four times higher than previously possible on a consumer monitor.
The Samsung Series 9 internal components have been moved to a stylish aluminium base, which features all I/O ports and a USB hub to make life a little easier. There is also support for DisplayPort, Dual Link-DVI and HDMI video connections, as well as built-in 7W stereo speakers and a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) for MHL-enabled smartphones and tablets.
The Samsung Series 9 monitor is set to ship in March but anyone lucky enough to be in Las Vegas next week will be able to check it out for themselves.
