Samsung SE370

SamsungTomorrow: The Samsung SE370 monitor comes in 23.6-inch (S24E370DL) and 27-inch (S27E370DS) sizes.

Rant: Who comes up with model names like this? What is the logic? Is there a school that teaches how to develop names for gadgets so human beings can understand? If such a school exists it should be mandatory for the Samsung folks responsible for these hideous names to attend such a school. Okay, end of rant.

The SE370 series monitor features an industry first: Qi wireless charging. To charge your wireless charge capable smartphone simply put it on the SE370’s stand. It’s a good idea and helps to declutter your desktop. The wireless charging industry is moving toward a single standard and that should help bring about more gadgets with wireless charging capabilities.

A few specs:

  • Display: PLS (Plane-to-Line-Switching)
  • Viewing Angle: 178
  • Response Time: 4ms
  • Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 (typical)

The only downside is the pixel format: both sport 1920×1080. The 27-inch version should be 2560×1440.

I like the color (white) and the slim bezel, but the aqua trim is tacky and has to go. A better name would help too.
