First Look: Samsung’s New 2015 Monitors

Samsung recently announced 3 interesting monitors that might be appealing to photographers with large sizes and high resolution and high color compliance. Mia McCormick from Kelby and B&H did a first look at these three displays with some good pointers.

The first monitor is the Samsung S27D590C 27″ – this is a curved display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 3000:1 Contrast Ratio and 300 cd/m² Brightness. The panel is a Samsung VA however this is probably not the best model for pro photographers (for this you will have to look at the two other monitors announced alongside it). Pricing is set at around $430.

The second monitor on the list is the Samsung S27D850T 27″ 850. This is a much higher resolution 27″ display (2560 x 1440 pixel resolution) based on a a more advanced Samsung PLS panel.  It has a 350 cd/m² Brightness, 4 USB 3.0 connectors as well as Height Adjustable Stand and picture and picture, but most importantly for photographers, videographers and graphic designers – 100% sRGB Color Compliance. Pricing is set at around $560.

The third and possibly the most interesting (and surly the most expensive) monitor released by Samsung is the huge Samsung U32D970Q 32″ Widescreen LED Backlit LCD – this 4K monitor (3840 x 2160 pixel resolution) has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m² Brightness, 4 USB 3.0 connectors as well as height adjustable stand and 4X picture and picture, 99.5% Adobe RGB and 100% sRGB color compliance.  Pricing is set at $2000 (for pre-order).
