Still on the East Side
Samsung Electronics has just launched (in South Korea first) a brand new, high-grade consumer monitor, the Premium Smart Monitor 970 aka the S27B970. Seen below, this 27-inch display features a PLS (Plane to Line Switching) panel with 178/178 degree viewing angles, a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a 5 ms response time, 300 cd/m2 maximum brightness, DVI, HDMI (with MHL support) and DisplayPort connectors, a 2-port USB hub, plus built-in speakers.

The S27B970 comes with a three-year warranty and costs about $1,177 (in South Korea).

I am just here for the girl... I admit

Cristian_25H has a fine taste... :D

But MHL support?

Does it mean it have a special USB connector that could be connected to phone/tab without the special converter cable?

So, will it run 75Hz and up?

Agreed on the bezel comments. I do not care how uselessly thin the screen looks from the side. They should try minimizing the plastic you see from the front.

And for that price we can get a dell 2560 x 1600... also I really wish samsung would use their hdtv bezeless design like their 8000 series.
