Samsung has begun shipping its 27-inch Series 9 LED monitor to the US. The monitor is aimed at design professionals, featuring exclusive Natural Color Expert technology that provides a richer viewing experience for working with graphics, photos, and video. Each monitor is calibrated for an hour at the factory, while a separate sensor can be purchased for in-home adjustments using its built-in calibration engine for precise color.
The display features a Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440, a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, and a backlit Plane Line Switching panel for a wide viewing angle without image degradation. Tablets and smartphones can connect directly with the monitor for displaying content through a Mobile High Definition Link connection. The monitor also has embedded speakers, Dual Link DVI, HDMI, and two USB 2.0 ports.
The Series 9 monitor has prelaunched with NewEgg starting back on June 1 through June 28. It will then be available on Tiger Direct, MicroCenter, CDW, Buy.com, and others from June 29 onwards. The monitor is priced at $1,199.99.
