Samsung Launches 24-inch Monitor Using MVA Panel

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.

    Wish the author could have elaborated on MVA.

    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???

    why is the monitor industry obsessed/stuck at 1920x1080?? That would look like crap on a 24" screen
