Samsung's super-curvy 1000R monitors are now available in Australia


Following the global unveiling of a new monitor range with an enormous 1000R curvature back in January, Samsung Australia has announced the launch of the massively curved CT55 monitor in Australia – it's first 1000R monitor to go on sale Down Under. 

Sporting an especially deep curve that's said to be more immersive, Samsung's CT55 monitor is available to purchase now in 27-inch and 32-inch models.

In terms of specs, each VA panel sports a resolution of 1920 x 1080, along with a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a max brightness of 250cd/m2. 

According to Samsung, the CT55 carries "the industry’s first high-performance curved display (1000R) and eye comfort certificate" from TÜV Rheinland, a leading international certification organisation from Germany.
