Samsung is showing off a pair of new curved gaming displays at Gamescom 2018; both of the monitors fall into the CJG5 family with the C32JG5 coming in with a 32-inch screen size and the C27JG5 featuring a 27-inch screen. Both screens have WQHD resolution, a curved screen, and a 144Hz refresh rate with high contrast ratios. Both displays will launch globally in Q3 with US pricing announced closer to launch. European pricing is reported to convert to the $400-$500 range, but pricing could be lower than that in the States. What we do know about pricing from Samsung is that the monitors will be "affordable" and if the pricing rumors for Europe are true, affordable they will be. WQHD resolution is... Read more...
Ask a group of gamers or hardcore PC enthusiasts what they want in a monitor and you’ll likely get a few common answers. High resolutions and refresh rates, adequate size, wide viewing angles, thin bezels, and a fully adjustable stand will likely be on the list, along with support for adaptive refresh rate technology and perhaps HDR (High Dynamic Range). The monitor we will be showing you here today, the 32" Samsung CHG70 Gaming Monitor with Quantum Dot Technology checks many of those boxes, and ups the ante even further with a curved screen, back bias lighting (sort of), and USB pass-through, among a few other things. The Samsung CHG70 is also one of a select few gaming displays currently... Read more...
The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ has been a long time coming, and spoiler alert, it was worth the wait. The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ is one of the first monitors to finally bring together a full complement of cutting-edge technologies and combine them into a single offering, like a delicious stew full of tasty gaming ingredients. In this case, the recipe calls for a 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) in-plane switching (IPS) panel with a blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate, seasoned with High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals, and garnished with NVIDIA G-Sync support. Talk about a drool-worthy dish! ASUS first teased the PG27UQ at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas...in January 2017. Yes, we have been eagerly awaiting... Read more...
Earlier this week Acer officially launched the new Predator X27 gaming monitor that had gamers drooling. That drool dried up quickly when the monitor's price of $1999 was announced. If you want a different option with the exact same panel, ASUS has released the ROG Swift PG27UQ that packs the same 144Hz refresh rate and the same 4K UHD native resolution. Considering it’s the same exact panel inside the ASUS offering, the same specs (and pricing) are no surprise. ASUS' offering does come with ROG Light Signal and Light Signature projection kit to provide a unique atmosphere around the monitor. The LED lighting can be synchronized with other RGB Aura Sync devices that ASUS offers for... Read more...
EPI, the North American brand partner for Philips monitors, has announced that it will have a very drool-worthy monitor available to purchase in the U.S. later this year. The 49-inch Philips Brilliance 492P8 is a curved super-wide display with a native resolution of 5120 x 1440. That wide panel is a VA unit with 1800R curvature, up to 600 nits brightness and up to 5000:1 contrast ratio. Viewing angles are 178-degrees and it has very narrow bezels. The thin bezels of the monitor are intended to make them ideal for people that want to stack them in multiple monitor setups. EPI is aiming these monitors directly at finance, engineering, design, A/V production and other industries. Unfortunately,... Read more...
Graphics professionals and anyone looking for a larger size HDR monitor may want to take not of something new that ASUS cooked up. As we head into the weekend, ASUS launched its ProArt PA32UC, a 32-inch monitor with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel and enough brightness to drive a true high dynamic range (HDR) experience, which is not something to take for granted when shopping an HDR monitor. Here's the thing about HDR. Whether it's a television or a computer monitor, ideally you want a display that is capable of cranking up the brightness to 1,000 nits (cd/m2). Many HDR displays fall woefully short, however, with some of them only capable of 350 nits. That's even below the entry-level DisplayHDR... Read more...
Someone must have told LG to 'go big or go home' and it clearly opted for the former. The company's new 38WK95C display is a massive 38-inch class (read: 37.5-inch) ultrawide monitor that first showed up at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year, and is now finally available to preorder. You will need an equally big budget, however, as this monitor will set you back $1,500. LG's new display uses an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a 3840x1600 resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio. IPS panels tend to offer superior color accuracy compared to cheaper TN panels. That seems to be the case here, with LG advertising 99 percent coverage of the sRGB color spectrum. Assuming...

The CJ791 QLED monitor has Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and can be connected to supported notebooks with a single cable. The monitor is also able to pass up to 85W of charging power through to the notebook to charge it up as you watch your favorite movie on the widescreen.

"As the pioneer of the curved monitor industry, Samsung continues to seek new ways to refine our displays and exceed consumers’ expectations on heightened performance and presentation,"...

LG has announced that it will be bringing new computer displays to CES 2018, and they are both quite impressive. The first is the LG 32UK950, which is a 32-inch UHD 4K monitor with support for HDR600 and LG's Nano IPS technology integrated. That Nano IPS technology uses nanometer-sized particles within the screen's LEDs to absorb excess light wavelengths. That application enhances intensity and purity of colors according to LG allowing for a more life-like viewing experience. The monitor is able to show 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which LG says is comparable to the monitors used when mastering Hollywood films. The 32UK950 monitor has peak brightness of 600 candela. LG also says that this... Read more...
