This is a sleek-look­ing 2560x1440 dis­play, and as it’s from Sam­sung’s Se­ries 9 range you an­tic­i­pate get­ting ex­cel­lent pic­ture qual­ity (which you do). You also know it’s go­ing to be ex­pen­sive. The mon­i­tor fea­tures hard­ware-based cal­i­bra­tion, and you can eas­ily ad­just colour set­tings. There are Dis­playPort and HDMI in­puts plus a USB hub (no USB 3.0). Un­for­tu­nately the stand isn’t very ad­justable. As such, de­spite the panel’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties, it feels like you’re get­ting style over sub­stance. That’s a shame, since this is a lovely dis­play.

Pros: A stun­ning-look­ing, vi­brant mon­i­tor.

Cons: Very pricy com­pared to some of the oth­ers here.

We say: We’d choose oth­ers first be­cause of the price.

There’s a wizard to help you with the mon­i­tor’s hard­ware­based cal­i­bra­tion, plus you can use other cal­i­bra­tors
