Over the past few years, Samsung has been putting out a series of curved displays and tvs utilizing these materials. The curvature used on these has been increasingly high, with the maker driving the curve as something that improves both immersion and viewing comfort.
The C24T55, C27T55 and C32T55 of the CT55 series carry it to the next point, with a 1000R (steep) curvature. Apart from the steeply curved screen, the monitor has a relatively low-key design. The top and side bezels are slender with a small, hard outer portion and a small panel border that flush with the rest of the glass. The bottom bezel is brushed with a matt plastic effect, with a dark blue-grey colour. The OSD (On Screen Display) is regulated by a joystick facing down in the center of the bottom bezel under the Samsung logo.
The monitors using 23.6′′ (C24), 27′′ (C27) and 31.5′′ (C32) Samsung SVA (‘Super’ Vertical Alignment’) screens. They are followed by a 1000R slope, slightly steeper than the 1500R slope of the previous century and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). A refresh rate of 75Hz is provided alongside Adaptive-Sync, like AMD FreeSync with a variable refresh rate range of 48 – 75Hz. Other aspects of the note include a 3000:1 static contrast ratio, 178 ° /178 ° horizontal / vertical viewing angle and a gentle matte anti-glare screen surface. 8-bit color reproduction is enabled, although the flicker-free WLED backlight provides 88 per cent DCI-P3 color coverage (119.3 per cent sRGB, 88.4 per cent Adobe RGB) with some additional vibrancy and 250 cd / m2 of standard maximum luminance. Low Blue Light (LBL) settings including ‘Eye Saver Mode’ are included for advanced viewing comfort, while 4ms of gray to gray response time is specified (take with salt). The back of the monitor is matt blue-grey, with a textured, matte plastic finish. The stand provides tilting as the only ergonomic versatility and there is no room for VESA gaps. The ports face down, hidden behind the detachable plastic cover in the center of the monitor. These include: DC power input (external ‘power brick’), DP 1.2a, HDMI 1.4, VGA and 3.5mm headphone jack. The 27′′ and 32′′ models both offer 3.5 mm audio input and incorporated stereo speakers for standard sound performance.
