Samsung unveiled a new line of "Touch of Color" (TOC) LCD displays today:
Delivering industry-leading performance to design-conscious markets, these ultra-sleek monitors advance Samsung’s signature style with a unique edge, uncluttered minimalist design and a deep ruby red infusion that complements its piano-black, glossy finish giving it a blown glass look.
Designed to be extremely energy efficient, the TOC monitors employ the unique SoftPower off function, which allows the user to immediately put the monitor into standby mode, while expending only 0.3 watts of power. Enhanced picture features include a maximum contrast ratio of 20,000:1, MagicColor intelligent color control and MagicBright Dynamic Contrast control. TOC monitors also offer custom, user-selectable capabilities such as aspect ratio adjustments, new MagicTune functions for display settings and hot keys. The 2ms GTG response (T190, T220) and 5ms response (T240, T260) ensures blur-free imagery. In addition, the T240 and T260 offer an HDMI connection for peripheral devices and lower power consumption capabilities in Operating Mode, which is up to 50% less than other typical monitors of the same size in the market.
The TOC monitors also feature the multi screen functionality. Allowing users to divide their screen into different workstations, sorting programs and projects to increase their productivity with no additional software needed.
TOC is created using a manufacturing technique in which a hint of amber coloring is applied to the front of the translucent cabinet infusing its clean, glass-like finish with a deep ruby red hue. The slim panel and soft curvature of these monitors’ overall design combine to form an elegant and stylish aesthetic.
The T190, T220, T240 and T260 are priced at $259, $359, $499 and $599, respectively.
