Samsung’s presence is always felt at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and while the event is around the corner, information on debuting products are already rolling in, including a bunch of Samsung’s high-end monitors. One of the monitors quite intriguing is the Space Monitor that can be clamped to your desk and adjusted at varying angles.
The flexible monitor looks really simple that it could be used at home in any workspace. And the name Space Monitor is not referring to where it could be used but because it gives you space. The screen is designed such that it can make room for other stuff while sitting at the edge of your desk. This Samsung’s new monitor is really a compelling choice in as much as it doesn’t require you to use a wall mount or drill holes in the wall.
The neck is flexible to allow you position the monitor close to you: towards your desk or straight up against the wall if there’s any. As you adjust the neck, the Space monitor can be suspended at any level or hang at the angle of your choice. The HDMI and power cables are not visible; they go up through the stand, which helps to keep your desk cluster-free. Also, when you position the Space monitor against the wall, the stand disappears into the monitor’s thin bezel.
The hassle of mounting your monitor on the wall is beaten by the Space monitor’s design while it equally makes it easy for anyone to switch desk at any time.
Samsung’s Space Monitor is in two variants
The Space Monitor will be released in two variants: a 27-inch QHD (3.6 megapixels) model and a 32-inch 4K UHD (8.2 megapixels) model. The bigger monitor costs $499 and the smaller one is available at $399, according to Samsung’s pre-order page. Both variants use VA panels, which are not as good as OLED – a reason why we are not seeing extra zero behind the price tag. But that should be as good as IPS.
The only downside is its maximum refresh rate at 60 Hertz, which is not a deal-breaker for most people. Though the monitor’s specs include 4 ms response time, Samsung didn’t explain what that means. But that’s for the 32-inch variant. The smaller display unit could be different.
We expect the Space Monitor release date to be February 23, considering its listing on Amazon.
