27-inch Professional PLS Monitor Featuring Hand-tuned Color Calibration and Quad HD Display
Samsung just introduced their latest professional grade Series 9 monitor, the 27-inch S27B971. Featuring quad high-definition resolution and wide viewing angles, the premium, hand-calibrated Series 9 S27B971 was designed for users that require a richer viewing experience, such as photo enthusiasts and graphic artists.
Each S27B971 monitor is individually hand-tuned by Samsung technicians and features a built-in color calibration engine, ensuring the most accurate color possible. Samsung’s exclusive Natural Color Expert technology includes hardware color calibrations within the monitor to guarantee there is no displayable loss of tonalities on screen. More than one billion colors are displayed on the SB971 as they were intended to be seen, creating a more immersive experience and ensuring that memories taken with a digital camera or camcorder stand out in vivid detail.
In addition, quad high-definition resolution (2560×1440) delivers four times more detail than traditional HD, truly making images and videos come alive on the S27B971’s 27-inch screen. The monitor also features Samsung’s exclusive professional-grade Plane Line Switching (PLS) panel technology, ensuring that the accurate color reproduction can been viewed at wide horizontal and vertical angles. This allows users to share content with groups of any size, and also work from any corner of their desk without reducing visibility.
The S27B971 has a minimalistic design and a “floating” screen that will turn heads in any home or office. It features a super slim profile built on an ergonomic height-adjustable aluminum stand, as well as a tilt feature, allowing for comfortable use in any situation.
The S27B971 design has been updated from the original SB970 monitor and no longer includes a glass cover on the bezel, minimizing glare and resulting in 100% SRGB visibility.
All of the monitor’s internal components are housed in a sleek, round aluminum base. The base also includes all I/O ports and a USB hub which provides users with streamlined installation and helps to keep work areas clear of cable clutter. It also supports DisplayPort, Dual Link-DVI and HDMI video connections, and features built-in 7W stereo speakers and a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) for MHL-enabled smartphones and tablets.

The Samsung S27B971 monitor will be available beginning fall 2013 for $1,199.99.
