samsung u32e850 1 teaserThe Samsung U32E850 is a display that has been designed for professional use thanks to its first-class image quality, lush 32” size and native 4K resolution. Outside of that, though, Samsung also integrates AMD FreeSync technology into the model. Whether the 32” model can truly stand out, let’s find out.

While consumer displays tend to always carry a cheaper price point, professional displays still continue to exist coming with a higher price tag and offer more features. What tends to stand out is image quality, color accuracy, ergonomics and connectivity.

To position the U32E850 as a business display, Samsung offers the 32” model with not only a PLS display, but the 4K UHD resolution which should cover sRGB color space to 97%. Also offered is Picture-in-Picture mode giving support for multiple devices operating in parallel. Similarly, there are the usual array of business environment settings with respect to height and inclination.

In terms of pricing, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the Samsung model carries with it that normal higher “business” price point. Coming in at $1,092.17, while high, it’s not overall too bad considering the 4K resolution, 36 month warranty period and on-site pick-up services.
