Samsung Electronics has introduced its first curved display designed for gamers and multimedia enthusiasts. The company claims that its new monitor has a wider field of view than flat 27” panels, which also makes the display seem bigger than 27”. Unlike custom-built curved displays available previously, Samsung’s SD590C will be priced relatively affordably.
The Samsung SD590C display is based on a VA panel that sports 1920*1080 resolution, 178-/178-degrees viewing angles, 4ms response time as well as 60Hz refresh rate. The product features Samsung’s 3000:1 mega dynamic contrast ratio technology as well as Game Mode, which detects changes in scenes, enhances the colour and alters the screen’s contrast. The monitor features a D-sub, an HDMI and a Display Port ports as well as built-in stereo speakers.
While the curved display will hardly be a good buy for hardcore gamers who prefer 120Hz and higher refresh rates, those, who want maximum immersion into their video games will likely find the Samsung SD590C a valuable buy.
The SD590C will be available in the U.S. beginning October 1, 2014 for an MSRP of $429.99. It is unknown when the produce hits the European and the U.K. markets.
