Samsung's new CH771 is a curved, quantum dot monitor, aimed at gamers and pro users

Victor, 29 December 2016

Samsung is having a few cool monitor announcements lined up for CES 2017. The centerpiece seems to be the CH711. The particular model offers a significantly curved (1,8000R curvature) 2560 x 1440 pixel panel in 27-inch and 31.5-inch sizes.

Other notable features on the monitor, include a wide 178-degree viewing angle and 125% sRGB coverage. The ergonomics also seem well thought-out, with a stand that can be used for cable management and an optional 90-degree panel rotation for a somewhat awkward vertical curved experience.

Judging by the looks, promotional photos and general description, the CH771 is not exactly a gaming monitor, by design. Sadly, no extra info on response times, refresh tares, inputs or support for gaming-specific features, such as G-Sync or FreeSync has been provided yet, but Samsung promises the panel will be suitable for gamers, as well.

In its press release, Samsung also mentions a few other quantum dot panels that will be showcased at CES. One is the 21:9 CF791. It is also curvy, with a 1,500R curvature, offers HDMI and DP inputs and a few powerful picture in picture features, for easy and convenient mixing of multiple sources.

The CFG70 is another curved offer, but this one is geared exclusively towards the gaming crowd. This entails special features like the "Gaming UX" interface, as well as advanced calibration and fine-tuning options for proper picture in any particular game genre.

Samsung has promised to bring a few of its upcoming 2017 high-resolution offers to Las Vegas as well. This includes the 28-inch, UHD quantum dot UH750 with a fast response time of 1 ms. Also, the SH850 - a flat, bezelless WQHD unit with a highly-adjustable stand and available in a 13.8 and 27-icnh sizes.

So much marketing bullshit... I'm perfectly happy with my flat TN panel.

Curved desktop monitors are pointless and gimmicky.
