A monitor with outstanding visual quality isn’t just for looks. For people who work at a computer most days, it can make work more comfortable and effective.

Using the most advanced ergonomic technology, Samsung’s S Series of High-Resolution monitors are designed to maximize comfort and productivity while minimizing blue light emissions, which can be helpful in reducing the risk of eye strain, headaches, muscle fatigue and dry eyes.

Here are the key features of the 2021 and 2022 series, available across some or all of the monitors:

Advantages of high-resolution monitors

Because higher pixel density makes images appear sharper, all high-resolution monitors are better for your eyes — but Samsung takes it a step further. Adaptive Picture Technology detects the ambient lighting conditions of your workspace and automatically adjusts the monitor’s brightness and color temperature, for more comfortable viewing. 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 has been tested and certified by renowned technical lab TUV Rheinland of Germany.

With high dynamic range 10 (HDR10) technology, the new high-resolution monitors reveal all the visual details in extra dark and extra bright scenes — details that are often lost on lower-quality monitors. Besides enhanced color, HDR also reveals details in high-resolution imaging, enabling 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 — also removing the cost, clutter and complications that tend to come with peripheral devices.

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

S Series monitors support 1.07 billion colors, paired with the standard red green blue (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. The QLED technology of the S95UA monitor produces a wider range of colors than ever before.

The LED backlights that illuminate LCD displays are controlled by local dimming, 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. This 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 a muted gray.

The S Series has four classes:

  • S6 monitors 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 monitor with a 1000R curvature rating and wide quad high-definition (WQHD) resolution (3440×1440), with added support for USB-C and LAN.
  • S7 monitors support ultra-high-definition (UHD) resolution, better known as 4K (3840×2160), and are available in 27-inch and 32-inch versions.
  • S8 monitors also support UHD, with added support for USB-C on some models.
  • S95UA is a 49-inch curved monitor that features dual QHD resolution, QLED technology and a 32:9 super ultra-wide screen for astonishing detail and colors.

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 the precise visual technology behind 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 might 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.
