Samsung S34E790C Review: Beautiful Curved Monitor

We need to admit that a curved monitor is not as popular as a conventional monitor. The reason is simple, the price is so expensive. However, if budget is not your concern, then i recommend you Samsung S34E790C, the curved WQHD monitor. Well, keep on reading to see the specifications, pros and cons, and more information about this S34E790C.


At first glance, the design of S34E790C does not just look luxurious, but it's also ergonomic as well. Not to mention about the configuration buttons that are easy to use.

The power button is located behind the monitor, so it won't distract your attention

Beside power button, you can also find double HDMI ports, one display port, and four USB 3.0 ports.

Its stand is made from metal and resembles the "T" letter.

Samsung S34E790C has almost everything to amaze you, especially its screen. Samsung provides this monitor with WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolutions, which is a significant jump from Full HD resolutions.

Instead of IPS, the S34E790C uses VA panel. It's rather unfortunate considering the expensive price of this monitor. (the bright side is, the images quality of a VA monitor is almost as good as a IPS monitor)

Now, this is probably the most important question you need to ask. Is Samsung S34E790C good for gaming or not??. Well, the S34E790C has almost everything to please a gamer: decent integrated stereo speakers, large screen, 4ms response time. So, the answer is perhaps yes or no, depending on your needs.
