Samsung's new series of monitors combine style and function, 'stunction'? (photos)

Samsung's new Series 7 and 9 monitors look beautiful enough for two slideshows in one week.

The silver and black

My next present to myself, the Series 9 SB970 is one of the slickest monitors I've ever seen. For info, see here.

From the back

Even from this angle, the SB970 still looks fine as all get-out. The lack of pivot and swivel are disappointments, though. For info, see here.

OSD efficiency

The OSD is located on the neck of the display. Better that than muck up the foot stand with buttons. Well, at least for aesthetics, it's better. For info, see here.

Truly, from the back

Here's USB upstream, HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort. Yay! No VGA! Time to start moving forward, I say. For info, see here.

Good gets better

Here's the new Series 7 TB750. Not like the old TA950. Well, actually a lot like it, aside from the new design. Don't expect this to come in white in the U.S. though. It attracts dirties something awful. For info, see here.

Context

Samsung's new contextual OSD is only about three years behind Dell, but hey, here it is. For info, see here.

Different design

While the top of the SA950's foot stand was flat as a board, on the TB750 we see a more rounded design. For info, see here.

Smarty pants

Smart Station picks up where Central Station left off and adds Mobile High Definition Link (MHL). Also, don't expect this either to come in white in the U.S. For info, see here.
