Samsung today announced three new curved computer monitor series for its 2015 lineup of desktop displays. The SE91C, SE590C, and SE510C join the monitors it announced at CES this January. The latest additions will be available in May.
The midrange SE591C will offer 27 inches of screen real estate for $399, boasting a glossy white design and space-saving stand. If you need something a little bigger, the SE590C provides a whopping 31.5 inches and sports a glossy black finish with metallic highlights for $599. Finally, the more affordable SE510C series is available in 24- and 27-inch sizes in traditional black finish, starting at $299.
Each of the four new monitors supports Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution at 60 Hz refresh rates. The new Samsung displays contain VA-class panels, helping to maintain deeper blacks and accurate sRGB color.
Samsung claims the radial curvature of the displays helps to reduce eyestrain during long periods of office work or gaming. And 4ms response times don't hurt, either.
The midrange SE591C/SE590C are equipped with dual 5w on-board speakers, but users interested in the more affordable SE510C options will need to find an external solution, or use headphones.
The new displays support VGA (D-sub) and a single HDMI input (the 31-inch SE590C has two); the midrange Series will also allow for a DisplayPort input, and all four can be used with headphones or auxiliary 3.5mm audio.
