Samsung Launches T55 Series of Office Monitors with 1000R Curvature

Samsung today introduced the latest T55 series of monitors designed for an office use case. To kick-off the new lineup, Samsung launched three monitors that have similar specifications, but their respective size is the only differentiator. The new models are C24T55, C27T55, and C32T55 which feature 24-inch, 27-inch, and 32-inch display panels respectively. All of them feature 1000R curvature applied to ease the eye strain, making them a very unique choice for an office monitor.

Besides the different screen sizes, all of the monitors feature similar specifications such as a 1080p VA screen clocked at a 75 Hz refresh rate. Besides having support for AMD's FreeSync technology, these monitors have 4 ms GtG response time, so they are not exactly gaming oriented. The displays cover 1.193 of the sRGB color spectrum and 0.884 of Adobe RGB, so despite being a VA panel, it is not bad. The brightness level is a standard 250 nit specification for an office monitor, and the contrast ration is 3000:1. To feed the monitor with image, you can choose anything from HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, or D-Sub connector. While the 24-inch version doesn't include any in-built speaker, the 27-inch and 32-inch versions have a pair of 5 W stereo speakers. There are no VESA mounting points, so to stand the monitor relies on its own stand which can tilt from -3° to 20°.

27 and 32" 1080p? Oof :cry:

Might be okay if you're sitting back a ways but if you're at a desk for office work like the article claims Samsung is marketing these panels for, that'll probably look quite fuzzy

Curved to "ease the eye strain" yet is 1080p at 32"? Right...

Awful monitor.

I wish for a high refresh rate (120Hz+) 32", non-curved 4K monitor with wide color and a decent contrast ratio, for less than $700

Definitely a unique choice for an office monitor. If you were the IT guy buying them in my company, you'd find your ass on the street the next day.

My mind does not comprehend why anyone would want this, its the worst combo of specs you can imagine.

It's an office monitor with 1080p and 75Hz, HDMI 1.4 & DP 1.2 are more than enough for it's specifications, anything higher will just increase the cost without any reason or benefit.

I'm using a 34" 3440x1440 at home but at work I use 2x 27" 1920x1200 and I ain't changing it. 2560x1440~1600 is the perfect for 29-32" for me. Else the PPI puts a little bit of eye strain after some hours of working.

At my work, they gave me 3 19 inch 4/3 monitors and refuse to let me bring my own monitor from home. This monitor would be a godsend for me compared to what I already have. Lack of a VESA mount would be its number one negative.
