Read full Ultra-wide, curved: Samsung S34E790C review

34-inch, curved ultra-wide monitor

Key Features:
  • 34-inch, 21:9 monitor with 3,440 x 1,440 resolution
  • Curved monitor using VA LCD panel
  • 2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, 4x USB 3.0
  • Review price: £725

If you like the idea of an ultra-wide monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio, as opposed to the standard 16:9, then look no further than the Samsung S34E790C. It's curved, too, which really works for ultra-wide monitors where you sit quite close.

The benefit of such a wide screen is more space on your desktop and great immersion when playing games. It'll take a powerful PC to run at the 3,440 x 1,440 resolution mind you, but it'll be totally worth it. It's particularly good for racing games.

This monitor also uses a VA panel, which results in an outstanding 2,133:1 contrast ratio. This should help make films even more immersive. And, while it lacks gaming features like a high refresh rate or AMD Freesync, input lag of just 10.9ms is more than adequate for gaming use.
