Default Samsung C27A750 27" Central Station Wireless Monitor Review Comment Thread

During this year's CES, Samsung debuted their Central Station technology which promised to combine an all in one connectivity and networking hub into a high performance monitor. This centralized approach will surely appeal to notebook, tablet and netbook users since it can expand screen real estate while eliminating the need to attach unwanted wires...

My System Specs


Great review, rather interesting technology. The engineer in me has me curious what frequency this UWB operates at, as if its in the same frequency band of bluetooth or wireless you could get connection issues if you are running something like this at work having multiple wireless broadcasting devices.

Disappointing to see the resolution they put that monitor at, though perhaps they could only support 1920 x 1080 with their first iteration and plan on rolling out a higher resolution one once they get the kinks out of UWB?

Default Compare this to the soon to be coming Apple 27" Cinema Display

This is a very interesting product that would be neat with my Asus laptop with USB 3 port. dissappointed with the resolution and general video quality. I do see why they stuck with the 1920x1080 due to the limitations of the wireless and even possibly USB3 if other devices are plugged.

Apple announced their 2560x1440 27" inch cinema display using Thunderbolt connectivity perfect for the new macbook lines. Being Apple they added a camera and supposedly quality speakers. They included other connection options with an additional thunderbolt, firewire 800, USB2, but alas no USB3. Taking advantage of TB amazing bandwidth it can be something to behold. It better be as it will cost 1000 bucks.

Unfortunately, Apple has limited themselves on this one since the Thunderbird connection cannot spare any bandwidth when used in parallel DisplayPort mode at 2560 x 1440 / 60Hz. So you would still need additional connections for any hope of getting the I/O fuctions working.
