Samsung unveils curved 27-inch monitor promising 'immersive' entertainment

Curved displays seem to be all the rage these days, although some of them are just outside the budgets of most buyers. Samsung unveiled a curved 105-inch 4K TV back in July for the princely sum of $129,000 - but for those whose pockets aren't quite so deep, the company has shown off a more modest curved display that won't require you to sell your house to pay for it. 

In fact, SammyHub reports that the new 27-inch curved monitor costs just 469,000 KRW (roughly $450 USD). Samsung UK's Phil Gaut claimed that the S27D590C offers "a truly immersive and unforgettable experience." 

He also said that the display "takes movie watching and gaming to new heights, from the monitor's unique curved screen and comprehensive entertainment features, to the incredible picture quality and the impressive sleek design." 

The display includes: 

  • Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 4ms response time
  • Brightness of 350cd/m2
  • 3000:1 contrast ratio 
  • Twin integrated 4W speakers 
  • VESA wall mount support
  • 'Game mode' function

Samsung says that "the game mode intelligently detects on-screen changes and corrects blurry images, enhances colours and alters contrast for improved visibility of in-game action." The company also claims that the curve of the screen provides a wider field of view, and a greater sense of depth, adding to that all-important 'immersive' experience.
