samsung s370 4With the S27E370D, Samsung hope to offer a 27” monitor that increases the link between users and the computer. That’s why they’ve integrated a QI loading dock in the base, a bonus that increases comfort further. At the same time, the company convinces with a PLS panel and a relatively fair price of 300 euros. Let’s find out just how the display goes today.

As part of IFA, Samsung introduced the 370 series, a display offered in both 24” and 27” variants at the moment. Today, we’ll be testing the larger of the two models which both carry a FullHD 1920 x 1080 resolution. In times of UltraHD with 8 MP or 5K resolutions at the same size, a mere 2 MP resolution doesn’t seem too high. Still, for many users it’s sufficient and Samsung hope to impress with a PLS panel providing good image quality.

The real bonus for the model comes with the wireless charging station for Smartphones. At the base of the 27” between the keyboard and monitor we’ve got the wireless charging station. Still, this isn’t the newest feature we’ve seen. A look through the latest Ikea catalog will find an array of Qi-loading devices from the Swedish power house.

Nevertheless, Samsung seem to be bringing a solid package together for around 300 euro (we couldn’t find a NA price at the time of writing). It’s a far contrast from the array of high-end high-priced monitors we’ve recently been looking at.
