Samsung has announced the availability of three new additions to its Professional Series 3 series of widescreen LCD monitors. According to Samsung, the new monitors, which are known as the S27A850, S24A650, S24A350T and feature LED backlighting and a variety of eco-friendly features, are designed to meet the needs of professionals while reducing their overall energy consumption.

From the looks of it, the 27-inch S27A850 appears to be the main draw of Samsung's new lineup. According to a machine translation of the Korean electronics giant's press release, the S27A850 reportedly features a 27-inch PLS display which boasts a wide viewing angle of up to 178 degrees, as well as 100% coverage of the entire sRGB colour space. Samsung claims that this allows the S27A850 to achieve exceptional colour reproduction, while its native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels tops off the premium S27A850's package.

On the other hand, Samsung has also announced that the new S24A650 and S24A350T monitors will feature displays that boast a viewing angle similar to that of the S27A850's, and are capable of a static contrast ratio of 3000 : 1. In addition, all three monitors will be bundled with Samsung's Eco Saving features that are reportedly capable of reducing their energy consumption by 25-50% under various circumstances.

The S27A850, S24A650 and S24A350T have reportedly been released for retail in Korea at the retail prices of 1.2 million won, 590,000 won and 300,000 won respectively. However, we'd suggest that users take this information with a pinch of salt, as these prices translate to approximately US$1109, US$545 and US$277 respectively; it is possible that there might be an error in the machine translation of Samsung's announcement.
