With the CES 2012 looming ever nearer, it’s time for entertainment buffs to sit back and watch all kinds of TVs and displays like the 27” S27A970 Samsung Series 9 monitor, being offered up for consideration. When Samsung says the panel’s built to look like it’s floating in mid-air, they mean it hangs onto a height-adjustable aluminum stand and is of the sort we’ve already been made familiar with before.

The monitor is capable of reproducing visuals in 2,560 x 1,440p QHD resolutions on its anti-glare, edge-to-edge display. And attempting to churn out accurate colors is the included Plane Line Switching (PLS) panel technology which can apparently deliver more than a billion shades at horizontal and vertical angles of up to 170°, both ways.

“Interest in user-generated content and a premium computing experience is growing as consumers are demanding products that allow them to better view, edit and share their photos, videos and entertainment content,” remarked Todd Bouman VP of product marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division.

“The new Series 9 monitor, with Samsung’s exclusive Natural Color Expert technology, answers a need for higher resolution for meticulous detail editing, regardless of the job,” added Bouman. “Its unique minimalist design draws users in for truly immersive computing and delivers Samsung’s signature best-in-class viewing experience.”

The gadget balances on a round aluminum base which is embedded with I/O ports and a USB hub. There’s support for HDMI, dual link DVI, DisplayPort and MHL, while a pair of integrated 7W speakers help with the audio function. Natural Color Expert technology, 300cd/m² brightness and a 5ms response time are also listed among the key specs.

The 27-inch S27A970 Samsung Series 9 monitor price should begin at $119.99, when it comes out in March this year.
