Samsung S34E790C curved monitor review


Once you lay eyes on Samsung's ultra-wide curved display, you'll wonder how you were ever satisfied with a flat screen.

Samsung’s SE790C is a luxurious yacht of a monitor. From the ultra-wide 1440p resolution, to the modest curve in its display, to its near flawless benchmarks, there’s little, if anything, to find wrong with it. The four millisecond response time isn’t...

Samsung S34E790C


Several exciting trends have perked up the PC monitor market over the past couple of years. Screens with 4K resolutions have offered unparalleled sharpness, and 21:9 panels provide a widescreen experience that's great for games and movies.

Impressive resolution and curved screen ; Consistently good image quality ; More versatility than rival screens

Middling brightness uniformity ; Expensive ; Heavy and bulky

Review: Samsung S34E790C 34in Curved Monitor


A huge 34in, curved, 21:9, 3440x1440 monitor that drops the ball on text rendering quality.

There’s no redeeming features here that would make it a better buy than LG’s 34UC97

Review: Samsung S34E790C Curved Display


W e'll be frank – curved TVs make absolutely no sense. The viewer sits so far away that the curvature is useless for improving the viewing experience. On the other hand, curved PC displays make a lot of sense, as the user is so close that the curvature...

Curves in all the right places.

Samsung S34E790C Curved Monitor


Curved displays are on the rise, and with having put Samsung's S34E790C offering to use, the appeal is clear to see.

Beautifully constructed; Superb image quality regardless of viewing angle; Great for gaming

Very pricey; Size not ideal for office/work use

Samsung S34E790C Curved Monitor Review


Samsung not only likes curvy TVs they also believe it's a natural fit for computer based pursuits. How does this high-end multi-application monitor...

Excellent colour accuracy, even without calibration ; Strong black levels and contrast performance ; Low input lag ; Good pixel response and clarity ; USB charging ; The curve works at close quarters

Some dead pixels ; Edge-bleeding on dark screens ; It's not cheap

If you’re looking for a great all-round monitor with superb colour accuracy and impressive picture contrast, the Samsung SE790C makes for an excellent choice. The enveloping, curved 21:9 ratio screen also serves to draw you in to whatever pursuit...

Amazing Product!


- I have only had it a little over a week so far and I haven't used all of the features that come with it to make a full judgement on it yet, but everything has been amazing so far

- the four usb 3.0 ports on the back of the monitor makes it so much easier to attach a webcam and external hard drives to my computer without having to go under my desk to plug into the back of the tower. The usb ports are also very nice because they...

- I haven't run into any problems with it so far

Beautiful Display,


My display came with the left side of the screen dimmed out completely looks so bad so had to RMA it. Will update review when new monitor arrives.

Display is gorgeous!

None (First screen ordered had dimmed left side of screen out of box failure. RMA in works, will update when new one comes)

Refresh Rate


I wish someone can verify this issue.


Cannot get the refresh rate up to advertised 60Hz. Only 30Hz and 50Hz options show as available on Win10Pro using the provided cables and Monster cable .

Everything is good except...


Fantastic color and viewing angle, Monitor is very solid.

I already replaced it twice because of the jog button on the back gets stuck so can't go up. Going left right down works but going up does not work...
