A monitor with outstanding visual quality is more than just nice-to-have. For users who want to avoid eye strain, neck pain and headaches, it’s a need.

Using the most advanced ergonomic technology, Samsung’s S Series of High-Resolution monitors optimize your viewing experience while minimizing the risk of eye and muscle strain. Here are the key features of the 2021 series, available across some or all of the monitors:

S Series High-Resolution monitor features

Adaptive Picture Technology detects ambient lighting conditions in your workspace and automatically adjusts the monitor’s brightness and color temperature, improving viewing comfort. S Series monitors also have a specific Eye Saver Mode that reduces blue light emissions, supplemented by Flicker-Free technology. Samsung’s Intelligent Eye Care software was tested and certified by renowned technical lab TUV Rheinland of Germany.

High dynamic range 10 (HDR10) technology reveals all the visual details in extra dark and extra bright scenes — details that are often lost with lesser monitors. Besides enhanced color, HDR also reveals details in high-resolution imaging, for better-informed business and design decisions.

With USB-C support available on some of the S Series monitors, users can power their external devices and transfer data with a single cable, turning their monitor into a docking station and USB hub — and removing the cost, clutter and complications that usually come with peripheral devices.

The DisplayPort Out feature on some of the S Series models allows daisy chaining, which lets power users connect a series of monitors with a single output from a PC, for a streamlined desk setup.

S Series monitors support 1.07 billion colors, paired with the sRGB spectrum, ensuring every on-screen visual is vivid and accurate. Most of the monitors in the S Series also feature in-plane switching (IPS) panels technology, which produces the best possible colors and viewing angles.

Local dimming controls the LED backlights that illuminate LCD displays, intelligently lighting and dimming the arrays, zone by zone. The LEDs light up to display bright and colorful elements but remain off in parts of the screen where the visual elements are dark. Local dimming may reduce energy usage by as much as 10 percent, while boosting contrast levels. For the color black, the LEDs turn all the way off, so you get true back instead of gray.

The S Series has four classes:

  • S6 displays come in 24-inch, 27-inch and 32-inch versions, with quad high-definition (QHD) resolution (2560×1440) and support for USB-C, LAN and daisy chaining on some models.
  • S65 is a 34-inch curved display with a 1000R curvature rating and wide quad high-definition (WQHD) resolution (3440×1440), with added support for USB-C and LAN.
  • S7 displays support ultra-high-definition (UHD) resolution, better known as 4K (3840×2160), and are available in 27-inch and 32-inch versions.
  • S8 displays also support UHD, with added support for USB-C on some models.

Monitors on the job

Highly visual tasks receive exponential advantages from working on high-resolution monitors, though everyone can benefit from them. Graphic designers, animators and video editors, for example, can use high-resolution monitors to see every detail in their work — as can people who pay close attention to numbers and dynamic charts, such as medical and aerial imaging technicians, control room engineers and day traders.

Beyond their visual benefits, the minimalist design of the S Series helps declutter desks, clearing up valuable space in your office or shared workspace.

At first glance, desktop monitors seem like commodities that differ little beyond their shape and size. But the right hardware can make a big difference in optimizing both your workspace and your daily work experience.
