Curved screens are the newest display fad, and in 2015 you’ll be seeing more of them than ever. However, so far the technology has been fairly exclusive to television displays.
That’s changing now: Samsung is announcing new flagship UHD PC monitors, the succintly named SE790C and SE 590 Curved Monitors. The SE790C is available in 29 and 44 inches and features a 21:9 aspect ratio (3440 x 1440 resolution), whereas the the SE590C comes in at 32 inches.
Aside from these flagships, Samsung is also announced the SE510 (24 and 27 inches) and the TV-ready TD590C (27 inches) curved displays.
Although the usefulness of curved televisions has often been questioned, curved monitors are a bit different; users sit much closer to monitors than televisions, making the curve more noticeable and arguably more immersive than when sitting 6 or 7 feet away from a TV.
The SE790C is launching tomorrow at Best Buy for a price of $1,199.99 in the US.
