Samsung offers Samsung C27H580 FullHD and FreeSync

Published by


The Samsung C27F591 is a 27” SVA (‘Super’ Vertical Alignment) panel based monitor with 1800R curvature, 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution and 3000:1 static contrast. it has 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles are specified and true 8-bits per subpixel colour is supported. 

The  panel itself is natively 60Hz, it can be run at 72Hz. It also offers support for AMD FreeSync, via Adaptive-Sync on the monitor, with a variable refresh rate range likely the same as its predecessor – 48 – 72Hz.

The C27F591FD boasts a more distinctive curve, which at 1800R is ‘more than twice as curved’ as previous models. Note that this model is also referred to as C27F591F or LC27F591 of the CF591 series, with various regional suffixes. Another new addition is support for Adaptive-Sync (and hence AMD FreeSync). We put this monitor through its paces to find out what the steeper curve brings to the table and also analyse its performance in key areas such as contrast, colour performance and responsiveness.
