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

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...

Samsung S34E790C curved monitor review

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...

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.
