Samsung's 34-inch curved, quantum dot display, is one of the best I've seen thus far of its class.
Thanks to a broad color gamut and relatively accurate SRGB color reproduction.
When you toss in it's solid FreeSync implementation and the native refresh rate of 100 hertz, it wins the day for Radeon fans, too.
And it's all about field of view if your favorite games let you adjust that.
There were no surprises with respect to free sync performance.
Frame rates below 60 frames per second on the standard engine looked good, it looked even better on ultimate but when the frame rate dropped into the 48 to 53 frame per second range and the low frame rate compensation kicked in, I did see flicker.
To raise and lower the display, it slides along a track that simultaneously tilts.You can also adjust the amount of tilt, giving it a cockpit feel that's a comfortable way to give your neck and upper back a change.
It's probably a good fit for standing desks The connectors are really easy to reach though there are only two USB ports.
And I like Samsung��s single control joystick design for navigating the on screen menu display and options.
There isn��t a lot of magic in its magic settings.
Magic bright refers to its preset modes, not its brightness and magic upscale basically over sharpens things unpleasantly.
Since quantum dot backlights tend to be cooler than standard white LEDs, the blues are pulled back by default.
You can let them loose with the high bright setting.
But I find it uncomfortable to view, and it's less accurate than the standard modes.
The display can be sensitive to viewing angle, though.
Brightness drops off dramatically, making it look low contrast in off-axis areas.
