Samsung just announced the SE790C, a 32″ top of the line  curved Ultra-WQHD monitor.  This monitor has been engineered to give the best curved monitor experience possible and to provide superior eye comfort as validated by TÜV Rheinland.

The brand new SE790C follows the new trend for WQHD displays, with its resolution of 3,440 by 1,440 pixels and 21:9 aspect ratio.  It is bursting with high-end specs like a 3000:1 contrast ratio and 300 cd/m2 typical brightness with dynamic lighting and shading.

The viewing angle is 178 degrees horizontally and vertically, which will give a great viewing experience however you choose to set up your desk and office.  The SE790C houses four USB 3.0 super-charging ports which should be able to properly charge more demanding portable devices like the iPad with 2.1A.

The monitor also incorporates dual 7-watt stereo speakers to give the full multimedia experience.  Users can choose from PiP (Picture-in-Picture) and PbP 2.0 (Picture-by-Picture) to connect and view two devices simultaneously without the need to downscale content.  This will be nice for those who want to set up their console and computer to the same monitor to save desktop space.  The SE790C also comes with a height adjustable curved T-shaped, while the panel itself has a hidden VESA mount bracket.  Based on what Samsung calls 3000R (curvature radius of 3000mm) design the curved display is said to provide a “noticeably different viewing experience from traditional flat screen monitors and competitive curved monitors”.   Samsung claims that the monitor creates a panoramic-like view and creates a wider and fuller field of view.  It even claims that the monitor’s design creates a 3D-like effect, though this is not really likely and seems more like they are claiming that it is much more of an immersive display.
