Samsung's 55-inch Odyssey Ark monitor pushes curved monitor tech to the limit

Has Samsung taken curved monitors too far?

Samsung's testing the limits of its curved monitor technology, creating a new 55-inch curved display called the Odyssey Ark, a 4K screen that features an aggressive curvature. 

This screen is designed to be a large format PC monitor, offering users a cockpit-style experience that could prove to be popular for productivity use or for simulators. This screen is designed to be used either horizontally or vertically and is intended for multi-window productivity tasks. 

With such an aggressive curvature, the Odyssey Ark is designed to be used as a desktop monitor. The screens tight curvature makes the screen effectively unusable from far away distances, making this 55-inch screen useless as a television screen.

Sadly, Samsung has not revealed many of their Odyssey Ark's specifications, aside from the fact that it is a 16:9 curved monitor that supports horizontal and vertical screen orientations. The screen also comes with a wireless wheel that can be used to adjust the screen's brightness and to navigate the screen's UI. 

Some reports have claimed that this screen is due to be sold sometime in in the second half of 2022, and like other Odyssey series screens, the Ark is expected to be an expensive monitor. The maximum refresh rate, pricing, and display technology used to make this monitor are currently unknown.

I had one of the Samsung G7 and it was really good, however, my second monitor was non-curved so when going back and forth between them it (strangely) made me feel nauseated so had to replace it.Quote
