Samsung all the time has an enormous presence at CES, but it surely isn’t the large TVs and flashy next-generation devices which have my consideration this yr; it’s this easy, versatile monitor that appears like it might be proper at house in any workspace. It’s called the Space Monitor, presumably as a result of it provides you house, not as a result of it’s meant to be used in house. I don’t see why you couldn’t, although.
What the Area Monitor does could be very easy: it clamps to your desk and sits straight up from the sting — up in opposition to the wall if there’s one — and takes up about as little house because it’s potential for a show to.
Whenever you wish to carry one thing nearer, or decrease, or simply want to regulate the angle or no matter, the neck of the monitor enables you to carry it down all the way in which to the extent of your desk and tilt it up or down as effectively (although not aspect to aspect). Cables go up by way of the stand so that you received’t see them in any respect.
Mixed with very skinny bezels on the perimeters (there’s a thicker, however nonetheless very affordable one on the underside) this makes for fairly a minimal presence, and it might enable somebody (like me) to shrink their workspace in some dimension or different. I like my Dell Ultrasharps, but when I used to be placing collectively a brand new desk scenario, I’d most likely look very laborious at these Samsungs.
Positive, you possibly can do a wall mount, however that is a lot simpler and also you don’t should fiddle round with instruments or load calculations. Simply clamp it on there.
There are two fashions, a 27-inch QHD (2560×1440) mannequin and a 32-inch 4K one (3840×2160); the latter costs $500, so the previous will most likely be a bit much less. They use VA panels, which hopefully might be about nearly as good as IPS, although after all not fairly so good as OLED (although for that tech you’d have so as to add one other zero to the worth).
Solely draw back: 60 Hz most refresh fee. That’s a potential dealbreaker for some. However the specs additionally listing a four ms response time, with out explaining additional. Maybe I’ve misunderstood, however I requested Samsung to clarify the discrepancy. The specs for the 27-inch show might additionally differ.
It feels good to have a cause to go to the precise CES essential halls this yr. And naturally, for the maximalists on the market, I’ll additionally you’ll want to try the mammoth new ultrawide:
