CES 2012 is just a few days away and Samsung is giving us a peek at what's in store, announcing several updates to its line of computer monitors. On the high-end, the new 27-inch Series 9 display features a Plane Line Switching (PLS) panel with a quad high-definition resolution of 2560 x 1440, edge-to-edge anti-glare glass, and an adjustable aluminum stand with USB, DisplayPort, dual-link DVI, and HDMI connectors. It also features a 7-watt speaker, and in a push that Samsung is making across all of the new displays, will incorporate Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) connectivity for users that want to hook up compatible mobile devices. The display will retail for $1,199.99.
The Series 7 Smart Station is an iteration of the company's Central Station product. It's an all-in-one Wireless USB monitor and hub, featuring a 1080p backlit LED display, integrated speakers, and an HDMI input for Blu-ray players or other video sources. The new HDTV Monitor swaps the wireless docking capability for a built-in TV tuner, WiDi, dual HDMI inputs, and a VGA port. Pricing for the new Smart Station and HDTV monitor will start at $549 and $599, respectively, with both 24-inch and 27-inch models available. All of the new products will be available in March, but Samsung is showing them off in person next week — and we'll be there to give you our impressions!
