Samsung launches 1000R ultra-curved monitors for the home and office
Samsung has revealed its new ultra-curved monitors for the office. The new T55 series comes in three sizes and features the same dramatic 1000R curve seen on the gaming monitors it introduced at CES 2020.
Samsung is really pushing its new ultra-curved monitor displays with the unexpected launch of the new T55 series of monitors for the home and office. As with the new Odyssey gaming monitors it introduced at CES 2020, the new T55 series features the same dramatic 1000R curve, but a less flashy looking although still handsome. The new monitors come in three sizes including 24-inches, 27-inches and 32-inches.
According to Samsung, the key benefit of having a 1000R curve is that the entire viewing area fits more naturally into our field of view making for less eyestrain. In addition to the 1000R curve, all three monitors also support AMD FreeSync at 75 Hz, which while still useful for gaming, is designed more for a more pleasurable scrolling experience when viewing text in particular. Each model also features a fabric-like texture on the rear and what Samsung is calling a “3-sided borderless minimalist design”.
All three displays also come in a 16:9 aspect ratio and deliver 250cd/m2 typical brightness and a 1080p resolution. Contrast ratio is a high (for an LCD panel) 3,000:1 with support for 16.7 million colors. Viewing angles are a wide 178 degrees while the monitor also supports 110% of the color sRGB color gamut. Support for the NTSC 1976 calibration is 80 percent while Adobe RGB coverage is rated at 88 percent. The response rate is a solid 4 ms. Pricing and availability is yet to be announced.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
