Samsung S27E370DS: 27-inch PLS FreeSync Gaming Monitor

Samsung S27E370DS where to buySamsung has just unveiled two new gaming monitors in the SE370 series, the Samsung S24E370DL (24-inches) and Samsung S27E370DS (27-inches). These monitors will be the first ones ever to introduce wireless charging support for mobile devices with the Qi wireless charging technology. That’s a smart move from Samsung, as their latest phones, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge both support wireless charging. No iPhone models currently support wireless charging. This display is also referred to as Samsung S27E370DL in some regions.

With the Samsung S27E370DS (or the 24-inch model), you’re able to cut down on your cords and eliminates the hassle of buying separate charging kits and having their cords mess up your workspace.

This monitor is designed for longer periods of use and it’s focused on minimizing eye strain with the Eye Saver mode and flicker-free technology. The monitor is a PLS panel (Plane-to-Line Switching) and it is basically Samsung’s version of the IPS panel, which all trademarks are owned by LG. That is, a PLS panel will offer you a superior color quality and great viewing angles. Furthermore, it offers deep blacks and clear image with its 300 cd/m2 brightness (300 Nit). The resolution is 1920×1080, which is too small for a 27-inch monitor these days in our opinion and you might be better off with the Samsung S24E370DL instead, which is basically the same monitor but smaller.

The most exciting part about this monitor is the AMD FreeSync technology, which will eliminate screen tearing and ghosting effects, without the cost of any input lag and performance. The FreeSync range for this monitor and the S24E370DL is 40-60Hz. The response time is 4ms which is the best you can find in an IPS-type (PLS included) monitor right now. Most gamers won’t even notice the difference anyways. What is disappointing though is the 60Hz refresh rate and that including the 1080p resolution on this 27-inch monitor are the drawbacks of this monitor. It has very thin bezel, a nice and modern design and a clean white color, so there’s no doubt this monitor will fit very good in your modern home.

Connectivity talk, this monitor supports HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 and VGA. There’s no mention of any in-built speakers in this monitor, but we’ll update as soon as we know for sure.

The price of this monitor is still unknown and so is the release date. The 24-inch model is now available for purchase (pre-order) at Newegg for $249 and will be released on November 13, 2015. We expect this monitor to be released at a similar date with a retail price of $299.

    So basically, it’s 2014’s LS27D360HS (or S24), but with FreeSync and wireless charging.

    Samsung seems to have abandoned 1440p. All of their recent and upcoming releases are 1080p or 4k.

    Nowadays you can’t sell “gaming” at 60Hz.
