Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

See everything better with four times the resolution of HD

See images as nature intended

See images as nature intended

Now you can display all of your images and HD videos with the natural colours you shot them in. Samsung monitors display perfect images thanks to 100% SRBG colour matching. No matter what digital device the image was captured on, it’s as picture perfect on screen as when you took it. So you can view, edit, and save images in their original format without any picture quality degradation.
Incredible picture quality from every angle

Incredible picture quality from every angle

Whether you’re off to the side, directly in front, or farther back from the screen, thanks to Samsung’s wide viewing angle you’ll always have the best seat in the house. Unlike conventional monitors that use a standard 170-degree viewing angle, the Samsung LED monitor brings additional eight degrees to provide an extra-wide viewing angle, both vertically and horizontally. The superior PLS technology (Plane-to-Line Switching) also maximizes your viewing experience. Standard screens suffer from what is called Colour Shift, which reduces the picture quality and colour when viewed from an acute angle. But thanks to the wide 178-degree viewing angle, both vertically and horizontally, you’ll always experience a crisp and detailed picture.
Work together on the same screen at the same time

Work together on the same screen at the same time

Samsung monitors with Picture by Picture allow for twice the capabilities as regular monitors. Utilizing Samsung’s dual input feature, two PCs can now be viewed simultaneously on the one monitor screen. Picture by Picture allows for a far more flexible approach to work and ensures content can be accessed easily, even from two different PCs. This allows for more collaboration, more productivity and more accessibility for the entire office.

Stay away!!

I bought 3 of those for my small business. After 6 months one of them malfunctioned. I sent it for warranty repair (6 weeks!!), during that time thesecond and third one went bad as well, so I had a business (computer programming) to run and not a single monitor.

If this is not bad enough, after I got the replacements, the same thing happened to one of them again after 11 months!!! There is obviously a bad batch of them and those (if not all?) should be recalled. I am frustrated beyond words...

Great monitor

I love this screen. It's matte, no reflection, detail is excellent, colors fantastic and the price was well below anything else available at the time.

I use this with a MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt. It's a great desktop replacement that can be quickly disconnected. It's everything I wanted from a monitor. Three year warrantee is nice. Next step is 4K, but that will be awhile. I'm glad I bought it. No regrets.

Worse than expected

This monitor is not easy to use with full resolution. Monitor doesn't have HDMI input and can't set 2048x1536 px resolution using his native DVI cable.

I own two of these monitors. I just recently bought a second

Using two of these monitors in a dual setup. These PLS screens have excellent quality. They have almost every feature desired in a high end monitor of the IPS/PLS class.

The only thing lacking is 10 bit color. However, unless you are using sophisticated design software, you will not not be able to display such colors
