Samsung Launches 24-inch Monitor Using MVA Panel

By - Source: HiTechReview | B 15 comments

Samsung has rolled out its sleek S24C750P monitor.

Samsung has released its new SyncMaster S24C750P monitor. Due to the high build quality and the use of higher quality materials, Samsung promises an elegant and luxurious appearance.

The screen is built not using a PLS (Samsung's equivalent of IPS) but an MVA panel with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, on a 24" diagonal. The LED backlighting ensures that the maximum brightness is at 250 cd/m2. Thanks to the MVA panel, the screen also has a massive static contrast ratio of 3000:1 and viewing angles of 178 degrees, bidirectional.

The built-in Magic Upscale and Magic Bright should make videos and images not intended to be played back on a full HD panel look better. The Magic Rotation function will automatically switch display orientation when the user rotates the screen into portrait mode.

Connectivity is taken care of by a VGA port and two HDMI ports.

The screen has already hit the market in Europe, with no official word on U.S. availability. Moreover, no official MSRP was given, although the screen has a European street price of about €280.

    Not QHD. No Displayport. No DVI. At about $400, this doesn't compete.

    that image makes it seem like it has thin bezels and would be great for triple monitoring... alas we'll have to wait for more details. unfortunately the connectivity is more than a bit lacking. Why U Hate DVI and Displayport Samsung???

    because windows sucks at scaling with high resolutions.


    Windows can scale any resolution your graphics card supports. Besides, from the connectors on this monitor, it seems geared towards playing movies on it, and one would be hard pressed to find movies that use more than 1080p at the moment.

    So why is the monitor industry obsessed/stuck to play movies at 1920x1080??
    Aren't there TVs for these already?
    Computers can exploit much higher resolution for a long time.
    QHD or very thin bezels is what we all need! (which can also play HD movies by the way).

    I think christarp got unfairly down voted. This really is the reaon why the entire monitor industry on the PC side is producing 72-100 dpi monitors. Apple has almost entirely moved to higher 126dpi monitors in most of its lineup. The only monitors that are sold on the PC side that have more than about 80dpi are for professionals that are fine with smaller text and need the resolution as well as better color handling. This is why there are no or very few monitors that are higher than 1080p that also don't cost a fortune. They all have very good color performance.
    Don't believe me? I dare you to try and run your computer for a day at anything but the default 96dpi. The OS itself will be fine but you will hate the font rendering and applications will break. OSx and Linux will do this with no problem.

    Looks good but I could not use anything less than 27" now after using my 3 Asus 27" monitors for more than 2 years. Anything less is just to small.

    I wish more companies were making good VA/MVA panels. The black performance on IPS screens is so beyond atrocious, that it boggles the mind to see them growing in popularity.

    1080p lol really? Get with the program people there are higher res choices out there, you just need to look. Ive been using a 30" 2560 x 1600 display for 2 years now and never looked back. Worth the extra cost.

    nope for me. These higher dpi are mostly a waist (Mac or PC)! Except some niches, it only serves people with good eyes who prefer a very clean screen.
    BUT, in reality, nothing more is displayed, otherwise it's way too small and unusable to read or to interact with.
    The goal is BIGGER resolution with BIGGER screen (or very thin bezels multi-screens) so the DPI is similar. I really don't care so much of all their IPS, MVA or black level... When I code, use office, surf the web, email or play games, I need more real estate, that my hardware can already handle very well.

    Seeing as the author didn't want to enlighten anyone, here you go.
