Samsung Unveils SyncMaster Monitor with Ultra Wide Band Wireless Technology

Samsung flexed its market arm today by releasing one of the first monitors to feature Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology. UWB is a method of wirelessly connecting the monitor to the PC/Laptop. The power cord stays, but hey, the lesser the cables the better, right? Samsung is bundling a UWB dongle that plugs into the PC/notebook's display connector, and relays video wirelessly to the display.

The SyncMaster C27A750 from Samsung is a 27-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) monitor with 300 cd/m² maximum brightness. UWB aside, users can physically connect the monitor to a PC/notebook using D-Sub or HDMI. The piano-black "easy hub" (base with connectivity) also packs USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 hubs. Slated for April, the Samsung SyncMaster C27A750 is expected to be priced at €599.

Cut that price in half and then and only then MAYBE people would purchase it. It does look shnazzy though.

£372 for this, or £225 for my Iiyama 27" 1080p... I'll take my Iiyama.

1. Looks easy to tip over if base is not heavy
2. Why does it have usb 3.0 and 2.0? I thought 3.0 was backwards compatible
3. How much lag is the wireless?
4. Oh it does look very nice, wish it had built in TV tuner to finish it off

I dont see the reason for this. They should focus on making cheaper 2560x1600 and bigger 120Hz 3D monitors

Wireless KVM maybe? With additional dongles of course, and if it has the ability to switch between multiple signals.

we need higher resolution screens then just all the 1080p stuff.
2560x1600 is the top for a while now (except for the medical 55MS screens with a higher res)
gimme some single screen curved 7680x1600 or something like that :rockout:

You considered the fact that they might be under the stand? There are quite a few monitors that mount with the stand on the wall...

I have a feeling that when running BlueTooth + WiFi + Wireless mouse + Wireless Monitor + Cellphone + WiMAX/4G/3G + Wireless Power, you'll get some issues, whether it be with roasting you brain/organs slowly, or interfering with each other.:shadedshu

Edit: I sooo miss the 1920x1200 screens... sigh.

no problems at all so long as they run on different frequencies. i know that bluetooth has a limit of 7 devices in the one 'area' before you start interfering, for reference.

You say that, but believe it or not, I've noticed my mouse being twitchy when testing a HSDPA dongle and even when using BlueTooth. Also I noticed the dongle performing poorer when BlueTooth & the wireless mouse were enabled, compared to when I switched them off.
Besides that, I have noticed another finger starting to grow out of my neck, and I'm just in Southern Africa that is relatively radio free. LOL, j/k on the finger! :D

1920x1080 is such a waste on a 27" screen. I'm sure it's a crappy TN panel to boot.

bluetooth and the mice (and wireless B/G) share the 2.4GHz range, so i assume the 7 devices counts all of those. hell i think receivers count too, so if each device has its own receiver (mouse, keyboard etc) they sure could interfere.

Not when I'm in a nerd rage while playing Unreal Tournament 3. or any other real time fast paced game for that matter.

I tend to think it like this... computers that that need wireless are better off being: all in one pc's, handheld devices, backup drives, etc.
Computers that have serious horsepower usually do so for a reason and are better off left wired(servers, gaming pc, workstations) - referring to networking as well.

Wireless sounds good for dumping data from devices and browsing. Not maintaining a permanent, reliable or latency friendly connection. My personal opinion

Maybe once we master quantum entanglement I'll change my mind:laugh:
