About the Samsung Series 9 SB970 Monitor

Even switched off, the Samsung Series 9 SB970 is an impressive piece of technology. Stylish, elegant and futuristic may be the most adapt adjectives that describe the elegant blend of metal and glass.

The monitor is as closest to plug and play as you can ever get. It comes fully assembled and with a factory-calibrated display so all you need to do is just plug it in! And, speaking of plugging, it comes with all the adapters and cables that you need (save for the HDMI cable) in a nice, tangle-free separate box.

Perhaps the only drawback that one can mention is that unlike its rivals, and even unlike other Samsung monitors, the Series 9 SB970 is not a super-slim monitor. However, you will be so mesmerized by how the wide, glossy panel elegantly blends in with the seamless glass front that you will barely notice this. In fact, the monitor’s thickness together with the solid aluminum touches and the metal-clad stand, actually give it a sense of robustness.

With regards to connectivity, the Samsung Series 9 SB970 offers a truly multimedia experience. It can be used in conjunction with consoles, laptops, tablets, smartphones and obviously computers. This is because it supports Dual Link-DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and a Mobile High Definition Link(MHL). Moreover, with built-in 7W speakers and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) – which is four times more detail than a traditional HD panel, you can rest assured that the experience will be a totally immersive one.
