Curved displays and TVs have become popular in the last few years, with the former becoming popular in the gaming segment because of the comfort they provide for extended use. But what about offices workers and “prosumers” who need to work for extended periods of time? Until recently, they weren’t considered.
Last week, Samsung changed that by revealing the new T55 monitor that features a whopping 1000R curve, which means if several monitors were placed in a circle, the radius of the circle would be 1000mm or 1m. Certain models also feature TÜV Rhineland’s Eye Comfort certification.
The T55 series has three sizes: the C24T55 at 24-inches, C27T55 at 27-inches, and C32T55 at 32-inches. The panels are full HD resolution with 250 nites of brightness, and Samsung’s signature high contrast ratio of 3000:1.
The screens displays 16.7-million colours and reproduces 88% of the Adobe RGB, and 88% of the DCI-P3 colour spaces, which is more than enough for an office environment and may be suitable for graphic design spaces.
The key selling point is the 1000R curve, where the lower number means more curved. Most monitors in the space sit at around 1500R to 1800R, so a 1000R curve is noticeably different.
