Samsung C34J79 review: The Thunderbolt 3 curved monitor replaces the Samsung CF791

 

Another fantastic quantum dot curved monitor from Samsung; expensive, but well worth it

Good colour accuracy and contrast ratio ; Dramatic 1500R curvature ; Impressive integrated speakers

Expensive

If you're not bothered about the two Thunderbolt 3 ports, it's worth looking at the near-identical CF791 that can be found for around £650.

Samsung CF791 review

 

I have enough ambivalence about curved monitors to fill a 34-inch screen. For games? No question it's good. For movies and work, though, it gives pause. Most movies use a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio so at best they float in the middle of a 21:9 screen....

The Samsung CF791 34-inch curved display is a great size for gaming, and the combination of a 100Hz refresh rate and FreeSync pairs well with midrange Radeon cards. Plus, its color is pleasing.

It only has two USB ports and the integrated stand makes life awkward for VESA mounters.

Big, bright and reasonably accurate, the 34-inch curved Samsung CF791 is a bit expensive for a FreeSync monitor but offers a generous feature set and solid performance for the money if you're a Radeon gamer.

Samsung CF791 34in Quantum Dot Curved Monitor

 

Quantum Dot, is this the technology you want in your next monitor upgrade?

Excellent factory-calibrated colour accuracy.

Relatively expensive.

Samsung CF791 ultrawide curved gaming monitor review

 

Stellar contrast ratio ; Slick design ; Luxuriantly large display ; Excellent picture quality ; Extremely accurate color after calibration

Video content can be hard to find ; Speakers are sub-par

Ultrawide curved monitors are impressive to behold. They just look great. They’re aesthetically pleasing, they create a luxuriant workspace that supplants typical two-monitor setups, and they’re immersive. Size and scope often compensate for any...

Samsung CF791 MONITOR

 

The Samsung CF791 is a decent ultrawide monitor. It has a VA panel which can produce deep dark scenes which is good for those in a dark room. It also has great gray uniformity, which is good for watching videos or browsing the web. Unfortunately, the...

Can produce deep dark scenes ; Colors appear uniform ; Great motion handling

Image degrades when viewed at an angle ; Higher input lag than other monitors

Samsung CF791 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor Review

 

I had been looking into ultra-wide displays for a while and talking with Samsung they said they had just the display for me to check out, it was their CF791 34

– 34-inch with a 1500R curve ; – Quantum Dot technology ; – WQHD (3440×1440) resolution ; – USB 3.0 hub ; – Easiest height adjustment I’ve seen on a display of this size

– None that I found

It has been a real joy using the Samsung CF791 display over the past few weeks. It is not often I am very impressed with a piece of technology, but with the CF791 I am basically like “Samsung take my money”, it really is that good! I feel like Samsung...

Looks good even when it's switched off

 

Plenty of space for multitasking. Great picture quality for photo processing (my main reason for buying it). Sound is pretty good too, though not HiFi. Beautiful design, that big foot is just perfect for storing my laptop. Easy set up. Easy height and...

Being of certain age, I wouldn't normally use such a word, but this baby is truly AWESOME!! Primarily a flight simmer, I'd been using a 24" flat screen, and this has totally transformed my gaming experience, to the extent that I'm doing all the...
