This screen from Samsung boasts fantastic image quality and the resolution is appropriate for a screen of this size. Plus, it’s beautifully curved and offers incredible immersion in games and even apps if that’s what you want to do with a curved 34-incher.
The screen’s blacks are incredibly black, and whites are gorgeously bright. Whatever you’re doing with the screen, be it working, watching movies or playing games, everything looks pin-sharp and colours are utterly gorgeous.
The only missing feature is some form of sync tech, and a higher refresh rate instead of the 50Hz via HDMI and 60Hz over DisplayPort on offer. It’s an understandable omission, though, as the graphics processing power needed to drive the screen’s 3440 x 1440 resolution at speeds of >60Hz would be out of reach for most gamers.
It seems monitor makers choose one or the other: they go with high refresh rates and low resolutions, or high resolutions and 60Hz refresh rates, most likely in an attempt to please the biggest number of potential customers.
