Samsung SR75 4K UHD Review

Samsung SR75 4K UHD Space Monitor

A giant leap?

Disappointingly, the Samsung Space Monitor isn’t South Korea’s answer to the US’s Space Force. It’s just a PC screen that comes on a desk clamp instead of a stand. This is the 32in version, with 4K resolution to take advantage of all that space. There’s also a 27in with 2560×1440 pixels but a higher 144Hz refresh rate for gamers. The 32in’s 60Hz refresh rate is perfectly fine, though, and you get a huge area for your Windows desktop or your favourite films.

Saves desk space while adding Windows desktop space

With 40 per cent more square inches, the larger model makes the most of Samsung’s design concept: to minimise the impact of a big screen on your desk space. A slim, square-edged case with extremely narrow bezels minimises its apparent size. It’s hinged to the Space damp on a minimalist metal arm into which you can neatly tuck the cables. A combined power and data cable is included for the HDMI 2 port, the only other option being a mini DisplayPort input.

The double hinge is flexible… in some ways. Unlike with traditional monitor arms, there’s no swing element, so you can only clamp it to the back of your desk, not a side edge, and you do need a substantial horizontal lip to clamp it to, which can be up to 90mm thick. You can push the monitor away from you and it’ll sit perpendicular to the back of the desk; as you pull it towards you, it gets lower. Whether the height is right when the distance is right depends on the depth of your desk. There’s some tilt adjustment too, but that’s not really enough. You can’t pivot the screen to portrait, and although you can bring the bottom edge right down to the desktop, you can’t tip it back very far, nor is it a touchscreen.

At about £ more than other 32in 4K screens, we hoped for better than average image quality. Our meter found the SR75 could display a wider range of colours than sRGB, but hadn’t been calibrated to use this effectively. Accuracy was fine, not great, with a washed-out look that we could only improve by adjusting the gamma setting, which threw the colours further of! With brightness also dropping off up to 18 per cent at the corners, this is a decent screen for general use but not ideal for photo or video editing,

SPECIFICATIONS

32in VA LCD • 3840×2160-pixel resolution • HDMI and mini DisplayPort inputs • 557x 625x391mm (HxWxD) • Two-year warranty

VERDICT

Samsung SR75 4K Review

It's only slightly overpriced, but the arm isn't as versatile as we'd have liked and it's a shame picture quality isn't better controlled

ALTERNATIVE

Samsung LU32J592UQUXEN

A similar screen, though not as elegant, with FreeSync; you could replace the plastic stand with an arm
