"We use Samsung commercial monitors. Great product, few failures, and through our Hanwha relationship we have good pricing."

I'm curious how a Hanwha relationship leads to good pricing for Samsung monitors? Was there a division of Samsung security monitors that went over to Hanwha that still carry the Samsung name?

Hanwha Techwin still has professional monitors in their lineup.  They are still Samsung branded.  I believe most are Hanwha Techwin models which previously were Samsung Techwin models.  There are new 4k models.  All have the same 3 year warranty.

AG Neovo for the win!
