Samsung today announced the SD590C curved 27-inch LED monitor with super narrow bezel for a sleek look or multi-screen capability. Stereo speakers built directly into the monitor’s curve complete the package with high-quality surround sound, while a specialized mode optimizes the monitor for gaming with just one click.
Through its carefully selected curvature of 4000R, the monitor has a wider field of view than flat 27-inch panels, that Samsung claims makes the display seem bigger than 27-inches. Furthermore, since the user is absorbed in the onscreen action, peripheral visual clutter is reduced, providing a more comfortable viewing experience that is significantly easier on the eyes.
Because the display’s edges are physically closer to the user’s eyes and match their natural curve, users don’t need to shift focus to see the ends of the screen. This component is ideal for serious gamers or office workers who spend extended hours in front of a computer. High brightness (350 nit) and 3000:1 Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio add to the experience by making images and video appear even truer to life with deeper blacks, pristine whites and amazingly bright colors.
The monitor’s Game Mode instantly adjusts settings for optimized play. It intelligently detects changes in scenes, enhances the color, and alters the screen’s contrast to make the darks darker and the lights lighter. Game Boost also enriches sound to further boost gaming in two ways: first, the monitor’s equalizers are adjusted to make sound effects sound true to life. Second, the most important game noises (for example, car noises in a driving game, explosions in an action game, or character sounds in a role playing game) will stand out over the background music. 5-watt, 2-channel dual stereo speakers are built right into the curve.
The screen is elevated on a curved metallic stand with an angled neck, which makes it appear to float weightlessly. The elegant silhouette is enhanced by the monitor’s sleek back, ensuring that it looks gorgeous from all angles. In addition, two or three SD590C monitors can be connected simultaneously to create a wider, gentler curve that delivers an incredible viewing experience for all games and multimedia content.
