Big fan of the ultra-wide size

If you use two monitors to get your work done, you should check out the Samsung S34E790.

Not only is the monitor ultra-wide, it also features a subtle curve to its design.

Click through the slideshow for a closer look at Samsung's high-end monitor and read the full review for all of the details.

If you're anything like me, you have about a bazillion browser windows open at the same time.

The 34-inch screen is so wide, it allowed me to have multiple large windows open at the same time on the same screen.

The big screen is framed by thin bezels that slightly protrude and angle inward. The plastic bezels, as well as the screen, easily attract smudges.

The curve of the stand complements the curve of the screen.

As seen from above, the curved screen is subtle. When sitting in front of the monitor, the design quirk is barely noticeable.

However, once you get used to the monitor, the immersiveness of the design becomes more discernible -- especially when gaming.

The Samsung monitor can easily adjust for a more comfortable viewing experience.

The S34E790 can move up and down, as well as tilt forward and back a few inches.

Even the back of the monitor looks good. It features a metallic finish that adds to the monitor's high-end aesthetic.

Packed with USB ports for charging your phone or tablet, the Samsung monitor also offers one DisplayPort and two HDMI ports.

The button in the back doubles as a power button to turn the monitor on and off, as well as a joystick to navigate the onscreen display menu.

The OSD menu offers all of the basic needs for using the monitor, including access to the picture-in-picture function settings.

If you can afford it, it's a supremely designed monitor. However, if you need it to get some serious color-correcting work done, it's not up to par with professional-grade monitors.
