Release dates and prices have been revealed for three new curved-screen monitors.
Samsung has detailed more information about its upcoming curved-screen monitor lineup. The 31.5-inch SE590C ($600), 27-inch SE591C ($400), and 23.6 inch SE510C ($300) will start shipping at the beginning of May.
"We've seen a lot of excitement around curved displays, first with our TV line and again with the SE790C curved monitor we introduced at CES 2015. We're excited to be expanding our curved monitor line to give consumers more options," said Dave Das, Senior Vice President, Samsung Electronics America. "Samsung's range of curved monitors meets the demands of every consumer, whether they're looking for a high resolution viewing experience or a more accessible full-HD monitor that still offers premium quality."
The 31.5-inch SE590C offers a 3000R radius curvature, a resolution of 1920x180, a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, and a typical brightness level of 350cd/m2. The 27-inch SE591C features a 4000R radius curvature, 1080p picture, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, and a typical brightness level of 350cd/m2. Finally, the entry-level 23.5-inch SE510C also offers a 4000R radius curvature, 1080p picture, and a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, but has a smaller typical brightness level of 250cd/m2. A 27-inch SE510C model will also be available. All three monitors have a response time of 4ms and use VA LCD panels for deeper black levels.
