Samsung Electronics will launch its SyncMaster 275T, a 27″ wide LCD monitor, in Korea. The new 27″ monitor features an improved color gamut of 97% NTSC and a dynamic contrast ratio of 3000:1. The 97% NTSC color gamut is probably due to improved phosphors in the CCFLs, and not due to LEDs. The brightness is likely to be 500 cd/m2 with a response time of 6ms gray-to-gray. The pixel format on the 275T is 1920 x 1200, the same as the company’s 24″ offering. However the fonts, without tinkering with the DPI settings in Windows, will be larger, which is something a lot of people would like. There are four USB 2.0 inputs, a DVI w/HDCP port and S-video. Samsung announced the 275T back in CES 2007.
I think it’s about time monitors became more like TVs. I would like 120Hz frequencies, local dimming backlights, black frame insertion, LED backlights, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs and super fast response times.Â The color is already the right color. If Samsung has it, most likely Dell will have it too, using Samsung’s LCD panels of course.
