Immersive in game. Easy on the eyes.


Most games released in the last five years like ultra wide. 1920 works fine for older games.

All about how your eyes scan the monitor with this one nailing it. Curve is the future. Adjusts high.

Still is bit pricey for most. I got mine on shell shocker saving a bundle.

Defective upon arrival


Great design. Height adjustable.

Arrived with dead pixel. Blurry text. Color is sub-par compared to my NEC monitors.

Very nice product got it for a great price on Newegg.


When the computer brings them out of "Sleep" mode, they seem to make a creaking/shifting sound as if they are heating up. Strange since it's an LED monitor. Not sure why they would ALL make that sound. I guess they do get a bit hot if left on...but as...

I like the curved surface it has a decent image and does well with video and pictures look great...I use displayport on them. It's a bit of a lower profile than what I thought it would be but still awesome since I bought 3 of them.

There is one that has a spot as if someone pushed too hard while packing it. Not sure if I can ever swap that one for another. ?? I did get the plan where if something happens to it I can swap for another. What say Newegg?? It shows up quite a bit on a...

IMO VA is best overall, not perfect, but not fundamentally broken. I own IPS, TN, and VA. I find IPS and TN are both flawed. They can do some things better, but they can do some things much much much much worse. Sometimes this display is ho-hum...

Good overall performance. Satisfied with Standard profile. Out of box experience flawless. Game mode useful for some titles. Eye Saver Mode interesting and to TÜV Rheinland standard. Big enough. I am replaying many games to experience them on this...

21:9 aspect ratio may require effort on your part to make the most of, as streaming sites are not delivering to it properly, and some games may require tweaking. No major weaknesses. There is room for improvement, that is the nature of science and...

Samsung makes an extremely High Quality monitor


If your looking for a top end monitor for around 400 this is the one for you

Fantastic specs, excellent color and excellent contrasts. I purchased a MSI 970 4gb card to go with the monitor for gaming although lower end 950 will work also. Make sure your video card will handle this monitor.

Really nice monitor


Adjustable height and tilt. I work for a school and the students are enthralled. They're choosing PC's over MAC's just for the image experience. $400 off is alright be me any day.

Love, love, love!


Seriously, if you play games on your PC you need this monitor in your life.

Looks awesome sitting on your desk. Sharp, crisp images and text. Rich, vibrant colors. Easy on the eyes. Lots of settings to play with. Great if you don't want two monitors, but need more screen space. Video games -- WOW!

The power/menu button is a bit weird from a design standpoint. It takes three "clicks" to turn the monitor off. There is a tiny blue LED light that stays on when the monitor is off. ... That's about it.

I was worried that I would want a 2560x1440 one instead. After booting up all my favorite games those worries were put to rest. I'm thinking of getting a second one to put side-by-side for racing/flight-sim games.

The 2560x1080 display was much better than expected. The stand is constructed better than any other monitor stand I have ever owned (television too).

Honestly, none.

Incredible monitor


From a gaming perspective, I have mixed feelings on this monitor, namely only due to its native resolution. Not many games natively support its resolution, so the picture can be a little distorted with some games. Overall, though, this is the fault of...

This monitor is a fantastic upgrade. I used to have two monitors, but now only have this single one. As a developer, I often have two windows open - my IDE and a browser - on this monitor I can easily stack them side-by-side and have plenty more than...

It does not take a standard line cord for power input and has a separate brick-style adapter. This makes it a little cumbersome to move, but for most people this shouldn't be an issue. Definitely not suitable for taking to LAN parties.

Love it!


I've been gaming on a 5760x1080 setup since 2010 and in all honesty, this single screen captures most of what that setup adds to a game. Most of the time, it's the things just to the outside edges that are most beneficial to see and this single screen...

Great colors, VESA mountable, curved and a thin bezel ; I also like the fairly tall and adjustable stand. Even for someone over 7' tall like myself, the screen reaches a fairly comfortable height ; The built in speakers aren't going to blow anyone...

I really can't come up with any real cons. I wouldn't mind seeing a USB 3.0 hub or a 120/144hz refresh rate on it, but that's just a wish list, not a fault with the monitor itself
