Samsung Announces Three Curved Monitors At CES Including 27-inch Frameless CF591

It wouldn’t be CES without a sea of hot new monitors from Samsung. This year, Samsung is showing off three curved monitors – one of which is being billed as the first frameless curved monitor in the world. Curved TVs aren’t entirely new, and the feature is finding its way into more monitors.

The edgeless Samsung CF591 is the real head-turner, with a noticeable 1800R curvature. One of the chief complaints users have about curved screens is limited viewing angles. If you sit in the wrong position in front of certain curved screens, you can’t see the screen well. But Samsung says the CF591 has a 178-degree viewing angle, giving you (and friends or colleagues) plenty of space to sit in front of the monitor. Dual 5W speakers are onboard.

The CF591 has a 1920x1080 resolution, which is tame at an electronics show in which 4K and even 8K displays are getting most of the attention, but the 27-inch CF591 is both heavily curved and lacks a visible frame, making it unique. It’s going to appeal to users who place a premium on style.

The Samsung CF390 and CF391 also boast 1800R curvature, but lack the speakers that the CF591 has. They are very adjustable, though, with tilt and swivel features and multiple monitors can be lined up to create an ultra-wide, ultra-curved display. Both the 27-inch CF390 and 32-inch CF391 have a 1920x1080 resolution and 250-nit brightness. And, like the frameless CF591, both monitors have 4ms response times.

All of these monitors include AMD FreeSync technology and have HDMI ports. The CF390 and CF 391 each have a single HDMI port, while the CF591 has two HDMI ports and a Display Port input.
