27″ Samsung Curved Monitor

Curved monitors have grown in popularity over the last few months and have gone from being an extreme luxury item to something a little more affordable.

We’ve already seen a couple of examples in Micro Mart, from BenQ and Philips, and now it’s Samsung’s turn to show off one of its newer curvaceous displays.

The Samsung LC27F591FDUXEN is a 27″ monitor with a screen curvature of 1800R, a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080, a response time of 4ms and a 3000:1 standard contrast ratio from a VA panel. In addition to that, Samsung has also included the Mega DCR feature, which dramatically improves the visual quality of the blacks and whites on screen. Although Mega DCR may well be marketing speak, it’s a feature that actually does a pretty good job of heightening the quality of the output.

Connectivity is okay, with HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA, and alongside the available inputs you’ll also find a couple of audio ports and power. There’s also a joystick-type control at the rear right-hand corner of the screen, which when pressed will activate the OSD and allow you to navigate through the available menus.

The design of the LC27F591FDUXEN is really quite stylish. With a solid white chassis and a super-thin metallic bezel, it certainly looks the business. There’s a circular metallic-looking plastic base that’s connected to the monitor via a thin stand. This doesn’t offer much in the way of ergonomics, for height adjustment, but you can tilt the screen to around 20º.

As for the quality of the display, Samsung has done an excellent job here. The LC27F591FDUXEN offers a superior level of colours and crisp lines, as well as FreeSync, Samsung MagicBright, Flickerfree technology, an easy eye mode and other qualityenhancing features. Gaming, movies and even everyday work is a pleasure to view; you could be forgiven for not wanting to return to your regular monitor after an hour or two using this model.

What’s more, and something that’s quite unique among monitors, the AMD FreeSync technology is available over the HDMI port, not just the DisplayPort. This gives gamers with the right hardware a better choice of how to hook up their screen; not everyone has or wants to purchase an additional DisplayPort cable.

While it may still seem more like a gimmick among the TVs, the curve does work well on a monitor, generally because you’re sitting closer to it than a TV. In this case, the LC27F591FDUXEN’s curve gives a far better field of vision than a standard 27″ flat monitor. And the curve feels a lot more natural to the eye when viewing the edges of the screen.

We were quite impressed with the Samsung LC27F591FDUXEN. It’s styled nicely, has a fantastic display and is reasonably priced. In fact, we’re going to be sad to see this one returned to Samsung.
