Quantum dot display technology represents an alternative to OLED that’s equally capable of producing extremely accurate and vibrant colors but still relies on LED panels for backlighting. Samsung has a number of quantum dot displays available for purchase, including the CFG70 and the CF791 curved gaming monitors announced at IFA 2016 in September.

Today, in conjunction with CES 2017, Samsung announced another display utilizing quantum dot technology, the CH711 Quantum Dot Curved monitor. The CH711 will come in two sizes, 27 and 31.5 inches, and offer incredibly accurate color reproduction with 125 percent sRGB color coverage and WQHD (2,560 x 1,440) resolution.

The CH711 utilizes a 360-degree design to ensure that it looks good from any angle, making it a perfect fit for just about any décor. Samsung uses the same “boundless” design as in earlier displays aimed at keeping viewers focused exclusively on the image, along with a 1,800R curvature and an ultra-side 178-degree viewing angle. The power and HDMI cables are hidden away inside the stand to complete the clean design.

According to Andrew Sivori, vice president of CE-IT product marketing for Samsung Electronics America, “Today’s multimedia consumers have heightened expectations; they demand an immersive experience that makes them feel like they’re part of the games they play and the content they view. Our new Quantum Dot Curved monitors offer brilliant design, richer color, and even deeper contrast than ever before.”

The company also took a few moments to mention two other upcoming displays, the 28-inch and 31.5-inch UH750 gaming monitor using quantum dot technology and offering 1ms response time, and the 23.8-inch and 27-inch SH850 monitor with an ergonomic design, QQHD resolution, and DP daisy chain technology. Those two monitors, along with the CH711, should be released commercially in early 2017. Samsung hasn’t yet provided pricing for the any of the new displays.

Samsung Display’s QD-OLED TV first look: Best. Picture. Ever.
Samsung QD-OLED display at CES 2022.

I was beginning to think it was the tech unicorn of CES 2022.: A quantum dot OLED display that, by specs and science alone, had the potential to revolutionize TV picture quality. Then I saw it up close, and I'm here to tell you it is the best-looking image I've ever seen from a screen. And not by an incremental margin, either. I hate the term "game-changer," but it absolutely applies here. I couldn't be more excited for this massive leap forward for TVs in 2022.

How I finally came to see Samsung Display's QD-OLED (important note: This is not a consumer television from Samsung Electronics) is an adventurous tale unto its own, and one best left for another story. Here, I want to focus on what I saw and why I am convinced that this latest adaptation to OLED display technology is the most exciting thing I've seen since the introduction of HDR TVs.

Lenovo designed a new modular webcam solution for its business monitors
Lenovo's new ThinkVision monitor works with modular webcam and speakerbar attachments.

While rivals HP and Dell have announced monitors at CES 2022 with built-in webcams and speakers designed for hybrid and remote work, Lenovo is taking a slightly different approach with its ThinkVision monitors.

Instead of building the video conferencing system permanently into the monitors, the new ThinkVision displays come with a modular solution that allows you to snap on either the webcam or the speaker, or both modules together, for a complete experience when collaborating with colleagues or connecting with friends over video.

The Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 is the new benchmark for 4K monitors — and I saw it
Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor.

Multiple companies came out with high refresh rate 4K monitors during CES 2022. Acer, for example, debuted the world's first 4K monitor with a 165Hz refresh rate. But then Samsung showed up, and the company clearly wasn't content to end CES 2022 quietly.

Amid announcements of  "world's first" 4K gaming tech, Samsung blew away everything with a 4K monitor that can run at 240Hz: The Odyssey Neo G8. It's not practical at the start of 2022, but it's the new benchmark that high-end gaming displays will need to measure up to.
