Samsung 750 Series Hybrid HDTV Monitor

Samsung 750 series hybrid HDTV monitor comes in two sizes: 27-inch S27A750D, and the 23-inch S23A750D. Here are the specs via crave:

  • Pixel Format: 1920×1080
  • Response Time: 2ms (probably on/off)
  • Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 (static)
  • Viewing Angles: 170/160
  • Backlight: Edge-lit white LED
  • Color Gamut: 100% sRGB

The industrial design is pure eye candy and exudes an air of high-end. Unfortunately the technology within doesn’t quite measure up. Viewing angles are 170/160; those should be 178/178. I would also have liked to see a full LED backlight we sometimes see on high-end LCD TV sets; I think it’s about time. And then there’s the 27-inch S27A750D sporting a meager 1920×1080 pixel format; it should instead be 2560×1440. A design like this deserves better.
