In the process of wrestling with monitor tradeoffs, we have come across a great new monitor.
It is the Samsung UE590, and in the case above, 28” on the diagonal.
The monitor uses an AC to DC external power brick, which means it can be powered off the ship’s mains. It is also pre-programmed for view angle selections, of which the lean-back modes are of particular interest. Without this option, we have found that the contrast setting needs adjustment when changing monitor angle. We have ended up with this 28” Samsung at the great room helm, and the 32” Samsung at the main helm on the Matrix deck.
