Samsung S27B971D is new matte PLS monitor

13 Mar 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung's latest 27-inch monitor is aimed at photographers, graphic designers and other users with color specific demands. It goes by the name S27B971D and is a follow-up to last year’s SB970 range. The new SB971 comes with a matte PLS LCD panel.

Samsung’s S27B970D will still be available to buy but Samsung now adds the S27B971D, which, unlike the former, uses a matte LCD panel to reduce reflections.

The SB971 series is based on a PLS panel; a variant of IPS. It comes color calibrated from the factory and offers a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. Samsung also uses an LED backlight to reduce thickness and power consumption.
