Curved Display Stories December 31, 2014


Prior to CES 2015 in January, LG has announced four new additions to its line of desktop displays with an emphasis on different needs for gamers, video editors and other professionals. The most intriguing to us is the LG34UC97 which brings a curve to a 21:9 UltraWide display. We’ve discussed Samsung’s upcoming curved widescreen offering and have advocated in favor of LG’s UltraWide display, so we expect this to be a nice marriage.

Samsung readies 34-inch 21:9 curved monitor

Samsung has announced the latest addition to its line of desktop displays with the SE790C extra-wide curved 34-inch monitor. This follows up the 27-inch SD590C from September that started Samsung’s curved monitor endeavors. The 21:9 aspect ratio is able to handle a resolution of up to 3,440×1,4000 with a pixel density of roughly 110, which surpasses 1080p and compares favorably to the 34-inch LG UM95.

The SE790C is built for an “immersive and comfortable viewing experience” that also focuses on multi-tasking while maximizing the monstrous 34-inch display. Samsung claims that “all curves are not created equally”,  touting a curve that aligns with the natural shape on a human eye ball. This allows for equal-distant viewing for peripheral vision as well which Samsung says makes it easier to see more of the screen at once.

Samsung is packing features that we’d expect to see in a flagship display offering, such as picture-in-picture, USB 3.0 and HDMI inputs. Pricing has not yet been announced, but we expect to see a follow-up with more information at CES in January where we’ll have a full team on site.
