Samsung Flat Panel SC750
The Samsung SC750 Flat Panel measures 61x37x1.5cm. The screen is raised 14cm from your desk by the 30x20cm stand and then 13cms worth of solid oval arm that is centred just behind the centre of the stand.
The viewable screen is 60x33.5cm which gives the notional imperial diagonal measurement of 27inches.
The arm is actually 33.5cm long and grips the screen near the top and for those who need to swap connections you can start applauding now as the line of connections are above the end of the arm so easy to get to from above the panel and best of all no arm to articulate your hand around, hopefully this will become the norm very quickly.
So if you want a large 1920x1080 screen then this may well be perfect. For me anyway I have recently been spoiled by a unit that displayed 1920x1200 and for those who view a lot of web pages the extra depth is very enticing. This however does have a solution to that problem.
The single line of connections towards the top of the back are VGA, two HDMI, and the DC input.
This means no DVI, no Display Port and no USB hub, also no mobile High definition link for those that need or want it then I see from the specifications that it is available on its sibling the SB970 that also has a 2560x1440 display.
The controls on the front bottom edge are a line of six small pimple buttons to allow you to alter the contrast, brightness and more. Until the second week of my review the only one I touched was the far end one the on/off which is accompanied by a small blue LED when power is on.
This should tell you that the brightness and contrast was perfect using the ‘Auto’ mode that cuts in as soon as an image is detected.
For those who want more depth and less width this unit can pivot through 90 degrees so you get 1080x1920 which is great for very long web pages without having to scroll.
So apart from a very large screen what else do you get, well, very high contrast at 3000:1 which is a lot more than most at up to three times the more normal 1000:1.
The refresh time is 5ms and this is on the GTG scale which is grey to grey. Normally viewing angle is expressed as side to side (horizontal) but with this unit having pivot it also has to be top to bottom (vertical) either measurement is the near normal 178 degrees.
Viewing this unit in standard display of 1920x1080 needed me to sit further away than I would for my 23inch offering at the same resolution not solely because of the extra screen size but also to be able to focus on the whole image. In portrait mode the requirement to move away was still there basically for a comfortable viewing experience. In my case the 40cm I normally sit from my screen was increased to nearly double to focus on the whole screen.
This is very new and currently the best price I can find is £299.99 with free delivery from the link below.
