Samsung Series 7 SC770 Monitor

Key Features

  • Review Price: £0.00

Introduction

The latest addition to the Samsung Series 7 monitor range, the 27-inch Samsung Series 7 SC770 is an elegantly designed touchscreen display with one notable and user-friendly difference to past models, a sliding mechanism that allows the screen to be angled from an upright 178-degrees to a sloped 60-degrees.

Creating a more comfortable touch interface for users, the Windows 8 certified monitor plays host to a relatively standard 1980 x 1080p resolution, with the MVA panel also hosting a 5000:1 contrast ratio and strong connectivity options. Samsung has confirmed that a 24-inch model will also be made available.

Samsung Series 7 SC770 Design

Less of a style icon that some of the devices in the Samsung Series 7 range, the Samsung Series 7 SC770 design is a largely pleasant but slightly chunky affair with the chrome effect, elegant curved metal base holding up a display that is shrouded in plastic.

Thickening towards its base, the wedged shape of the Samsung Series 7 SC770 monitor is largely hidden when viewed from the front, becoming increasingly apparent the lower down the device’s sliding mechanism the screen is placed.

Although not as aesthetically pleasing as some Samsung products, based on time with the monitor at CES 2013, the Samsung Series 7 SC700 is well built, important for a device that will be handled as much as this touchscreen offering, with little flexing or unnerving unwanted movement when being pushed and pulled along its sliding mechanism.

Samsung Series 7 SC770 Features

With the monitor’s adjustable pitch taking pride of place as the Samsung Series 7 SC770’s party piece, the Windows 8 friendly offering is far from a one-trick pony with the 10-finger multitouch capabilities proving highly responsive and smooth when put into practise.

With little lag between touch and response, the touchscreen credentials of the Samsung Series 7 SC770 are one of the monitor’s defining features whilst elsewhere a single USB and a pair of HDMI ports feature alongside two 3Watt speakers we have yet to have opportunity to yest.

Back to the monitor’s sliding setup and the user friendly feature is a very welcome one, allowing for a more comfortable and natural setup for heavy touchscreen use such as typing, artistic work or even gaming. Slotting down to just a 60-degree angle, the Samsung Series 7 SC770 helps remove arm ache and poor posture caused by using a full upright touchscreen monitor at a distance.

Adding to the display’s kudos winning plus points, the Samsung Series 7 SC770 monitor’s sliding mechanism is paired with a satisfying amount of resistance. Whilst just two fingers are needed to easily push the monitor down or pull it back up, a pleasant level of resistance and solid base meaning the monitor doesn’t slide across the desktop if pushed hard or slide down of its own accord.

Samsung Series 7 SC770 Picture Quality

On first impressions, the Samsung Series 7 SC770 picture quality fails to hit the heights we have come to expect from Samsung branded products from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 all the way up to the Samsung Series 9 televisions.

Whilst the MVA panel offers strong, bright, vibrant colours with a strong contrast ratio removing concerns of blocked hues, the Samsung Series 7 SC770 picture quality is let down by the monitor’s visible touch layer. Creating a close-knit checkerboard effect across the entire 27-inch display, the visible touch layer causes an almost hazed effect to be overlaid on all on-screen content.

Would a sliding monitor boost your touchscreen based Windows 8 antics or is it an unnecessary luxury? Share your thoughts on the matter with us via the Trusted Reviews Twitter and Facebook feeds or comment boxes below and stay tuned for a full Samsung Series 7 SC770 review in the near future.
