Just before we flipped our calendars to 2013, Samsung has announced two Series 7 display panels which they plan to showcase in the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show this month in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The two monitors go by the name (or model number) SC770 and SC750 with the former measuring at 24-inch diagonally while the other is 27-inch. Both of these PLS-type panels will boast a Full HD resolution which will be displayed in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Each is said to have a 5ms (GTG) response time and will have a 5000:1 Contrast Ratio.
Besides the size, there are other contrasting features that these two monitors have such as the two built-in 3W speaker and USB port on the SC770 and the slightly brighter display (300 cd/m2 vs 250 cd/m2) of the SC750. But the main difference between the SC750 and SC770 is that the latter sports a touchscreen display which is geared for Windows 8 users. The SC750, on the other hand, features a slim and ergonomic design which allows the user to tilt it up to 90° for a more comfortable view.
These two new monitors are set to hit the shelves on the first quarter of this year but it’s still not sure how much it’ll cost when it does come out.
Accompanying these two monitors in the Samsung booth in the upcoming CES is the hand calibrated Series 9 display panel (S27B970) which made its debut back in the third quarter of last year. This 27-inch monitor is equipped with a slew of ports which includes a pair of USB, DVI and HDMI and has MHL support. The Samsung Series 9 S27B970, with all of its glamour, will cost you a bank-breaking USD1,200. It’s not cheap, but if you’re in search of a more than decent monitor for your photography needs, this one may just fit the bill.
