Samsung's new monitors have a better reason to be curved than TVs ever did
CES is just a week away, but if manufacturers keep going at their current pace of announcements, they're going to have nothing new to reveal on the show floor. The latest is the CH711 monitor from Samsung, a sleek curved model designed for gaming that uses quantum dot technology for what Samsung says is a "vivid, visually stunning picture."The snazzy white-bodied CH711 has 27-inch and 31.5-inch variations, but both offer 2,560 x 1,440 WQHD resolution, and have a curvature of 1,800R. That's pretty damned curved, but that's great if you're playing games and watching movies from a few feet away, like Samsung's relaxed test subject in the picture above. The company promises a 178-degree viewing angle, anyway, and says the monitor gives a "richer and more vibrant color from any viewing distance."
