Samsung made their SA850 range of PC monitors with the new Super PLS panel technology official in February. The first models to arrive have now been detailed with a 24-inch model called S24A850 and a 27-inch S27A850.

Samsung recently released their SA950 and SA750 ranges with TN panels. However, Samsung SA850 looks like a far more interesting monitor with its Super PLS panel targeted at graphic artists and photographers.

Super PLS is Samsung’s counterpart to IPS and therefore expected to carry the same picture characteristics that are found in for example Dell’s UltraSharp monitors and Apple’s iPhone 4. Such characteristics include accurate colors, semi-fast response time and much wider viewing angles than TN panels found in most PC monitors today.

The 24-inch monitor will feature an 16:!0 S-PLS panel with 1920x1200 resolution, 5 ms (g2g) response time and 1000:1 contrast ratio. Samsung also mentions 300 cd/m2 brightness and 178/178 viewing angles.

The 27-inch version features a 2560x1440 resolution S-PLS panel. No other specs are provided.

The monitors have a black design with an ergonomic stand that allows users to adjust height, tilt, swivel and pivot. They also come with DVI, D-SUB (VGA) and DisplayPort.

Samsung S24A850 and S27A850 will arrive later this year. We will try to obtain review samples as soon as possible.
