The culmination of over five years of global market leadership in monitors, the new 27-inch Series 9 incorporates the best that Samsung has to offer, including its exclusive Natural Color Expert technology, which provides a richer viewing experience for graphic artists, photographers, designers and anyone else with a sense of style working with photos and video content.

Starting at $1,199.99, the Series 9 will be available through an exclusive prelaunch with NewEgg from June 1 – June 28 and then through Tiger Direct, MicroCenter, CDW, Buy.com and others from June 29 onwards.

“More and more, consumers are demanding products that allow them to better view, edit and share their photos, videos and entertainment content,” said Todd Bouman, vice president of product marketing at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “With its sleek, elegant silhouette, coupled with Samsung’s signature best-in-class viewing experience, the Series 9 monitor is a must-have for consumers that want the best in elegant design, stunning display quality and convenient functionality to create the best overall viewing experience possible.”

Pretty much the new gold standard. Unfortunately I've already sold all my gold so I don't see how I'll be affording this.

Yeah, would love to own one of these but at that price there's no way I can afford it. Heck, that's more expensive than some 30" IPS panels!

I have a couple of "pro" Samsung panels albeit somewhat old. They were half the price of the Eizo IPS of the competition, but the overdriven-non-IPS soon tire your eyes. Never again a TFT that isnt IPS.

Oh hell yeah I'll pay that much for a 3840x2160 panel!!!

Oh... I see what you did there. Quad HD, not Quad Full HD :shadedshu

I suppose it's still pretty nice, but nothing I could jump on until it's cheaper.


Pre-order if anyone was interested: SAMSUNG Series 9 S27B970D High Gloss Black/Brushed...

I remember the stand for Samsung's similar models being quite wobbly. For over a grand I'd expect it to be stable.

What? $1200 for a 27" 1440p monitor? They mad? Were it 120Hz, then OK, but it's not.

I'm glad someone saw 1920x1080 for the horrible PoS that it is, but I'm worried that it's so damn expensive that nobody'll buy it.

The one good thing about the Jesus monitors is that when it dies the first time it'll come back to life the next morning.

Edit: They're also apparently very environmentally friendly since the monitors are self-assembled without the need of tools or materials; they just magically pop out of the factory.

How is 2560x1440 classified as Quad HD?
Number of pixels.

Let's not mistaken
  • qHD (960×540) = quarter of a Full HD
  • WQHD (2560×1440) = Wide Quad High Definition
  • QFHD (3840×2160) = Quad Full High Definition
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphic_display_resolutions#High-Definition

I'd like to see resolution-wise is 26" or 27" 16:10 4k monitors, ie, WQUXGA (3840×2400, Wide Quad Ultra Extended Graphics Array).

Let's hope they continue to add features, at least there's 3 of the features I had mentioned here.:)

Here they are refering to Quad HD. HD has a resolution of 1280 x 720. If you double its height and width you get the Samsungs resolution of: 2560 x 1440

I want QFHD in 24" please. That would fit my desk and my lust for resolution perfectly.

PS. I wonder when Apple will release a "retina" cinema display. Probably LONG BEFORE the PC industry pulls their finger out...

I just don't get it why wall mounting isn't a standard for LCD monitors. You can't buy a LCD TV without such option but 80% of all LCD monitors just don't have it. I was buying a 5:4 years ago and i could hardly find any. Seriously, they all think we place these big boxes on our desks when wall mounting is million times better?
