    Solid Performer as a PS4 Monitor

    This is one of several screens I have on my desk in my 'man cave'. It is currently only being used as a PS4 monitor. It has worked excellent for this. Everything from slower paced RPG games to fast paced FPS action, Ive not had a single complaint with its performance. Picture is great, colors are very good. The only faults you may find were if you were to do in depth testing on its color accuracy and the like, but 99% of users arent this picky. Most of the reviews around the web were favorable for the monitor, mostly nixing it a little because at its retail price its a tad over priced for its feature set. Bestbuy seems to run this monitor on sale a lot however I have noticed. As stated image quality will not disappoint. The monitor is very lightweight, and the stand feels sturdy enough. It can be tilted up and down to different angles but thats about all the adjustment options you get. The monitor also has a headphone jack, and this was a small but important factor for me. It enables me to input audio via HDMI from ps4, then output the audio via headphone jack to my 2.1 computer speaker set up. It works well. Without the headphone jack Id have to swap cables from the ps4 everytime I wanted to swap from my headset to my speakers, so this was a huge selling point for me with this monitor. I would note my copy did have one dead pixel right in the middle of the left 1/3rd of the screen. I sit back about 3 to 4 feet when playing on it though and I never notice it unless Im staring at a light, stationary screen, then the tiny black speck can be seen. In games and in movies you never notice it though. Couple things I would add - do not judge the monitor based on how it looks in bestbuy. I know monitors always look terrible in the store because they run them all on the oldest connection (RGB) available, and the picture often looks skewed and fuzzy. Aspect ratios look off on about half the screens in their monitor section, and they do a poor job presenting their actual potential. When hooked up to an HDMI or Display Port connection its image quality is very respectable among LED monitors. Does the curve matter? Does it add anything? In my gaming and movie viewing I dont feel it adds anything. I dont even really notice its curved. Curved screens are supposed to be a little more "natural" for the human eye, and make for "easier" or more "relaxed" viewing for the eye, or so Ive read. Maybe that is happening? If so its not anything you will really notice. I would add thought that it doesnt take away from the monitor either. It doesnt skew or distort the image in any way on screen. I was looking for a solid 27" screen for my PS4, so I could use the ps4 at my big L desk. This montior has worked for that very well. I dont really have anything negative to say about it. At $350 it is a tad over priced for its feature set however, but with regular sales on it, you can find it under $300 at bestbuy all the time. I would rate it at 4.5 / 5 stars.

    Samsung 27” curved screen computer monitor. It is so much more bright than the last monitor I had that stopped working. I started out looking at Best Buy for monitors and had no interest in a curved screen! I got this monitor because it was the closest to what I wanted. I have to say that it is a nicer monitor than I thought it was going to be. I have to say that the curved screen has made me a believer. This curved screen make the screen feel like it has depth to it! Now as for me I like that! I have a 4K Samsung TV and the old TV that was a Samsung 4K also that did not work out and Best Buy replaced it under their warrant. I like this new 4K but miss the 3D effect that was on the old 4K TV. The curved screen give some feeling of that depth that 3D gave. I do not want you to think it is like 3D because it is not and it does not even comes close! It just makes the screen feel like it has some depth. With that being said the monitor is as bright as one would ever want in a monitor. It is so bright that it comes with an opinion to bring the brightness down if you want to do that! It also comes with the option to set up the monitor to reduce the blue light coming from the screen so if you are using it late and into the night it will help you not have trouble going to sleep when you are done working. They say that blue light keeps you from going to sleep easily! Nice option for those time you have to work late! In the end I just think I ended up with a very nice monitor! Really, better than I thought it would be! It was not the lowest priced monitor but then it was not the highest priced monitor! Works great for me and what I wanted. It depends on what you need and or want in a monitor. In my opinion this is a very good all-around monitor. For me it is better than that! I would say that if you need help with getting a new monitor it will never hurt to talk with the Best Buy people that work with computers so you understand what is available in monitors and for what you need it for. They helped me and it helped me get what I wanted!

    I am enjoying this monitor very much... Originally I had two Samsung SyncMasters, one of which finally gave out after many years of service. So this was a replacement. Originally I bought one, but now have two, which gives me an incredible panorama. The bezel is hardly noticeable. I am also happy with the DisplayPort and HDMI inputs. Prior to purchase, I read all the reviews and can verify some of the problems reported. I do see a problem with text in some settings, but calibration can improve the quality. The reason for one star removed is primarily for the lack of a VESA mount. Considering my tired old eyes, the larger screens allow me to sit further back and dump my reading glasses, which I really like. Overall, this is a pretty good monitor and I do recommend.

    Great monitor for productivity

    I only had this monitor for a few days, but it was great. The picture is very clear, colours are vibrant, and The curve is enough to be a emersive, but not distracting. The design is very sleek. I only rated it 4/5 because of two things. The stand (it can't be placed very close to the wall, and the circular stand comes out quite far from the monitor. It also doesn't move or pivot at all) and the 4 Ms response time + only being 60Hz. I originally purchased it to use for gaming, so I'd be stuck at ~60 fps if I wanted everything to move smoothly. (If you are using for office work/web-browsing/ ect, these specs should be plenty for you, but aren't optimal for gaming) For the price, these specs aren't bad at all for a curved monitor, so the only reason it detracted from a 5 star rating was because I was able to find a 27" curved gaming monitor with a 1ms response time and 144hz for the same price. I was honestly sad to exchange it because it is a beautiful display and great quality, but I just needed something that could provide a 100+ fps gaming experience instead.

    I was looking for a curved monitor for photo editing and gaming, but didn't want to spend $500+ for a premium gaming monitor. When this came out I really liked the specs and look. Ended up buying it and couldn't be more happy with it. Colors look very nice in it. I use it to play battlefield and assetto corsa mainly and it's awesome, and freesync is a big plus. The curved screen really immerses you in the game. The monitor has a game mode that makes games look way better and the reaction times become faster. @60hz it may not be comparable to higher RR monitors but to be honest, 60hz is very good unless you're an extremely competitive gamer who can't live without 144hz. I also have my ps4 hooked up to this monitor via an HDMI cable, and displayport for the PC so I don't have to plug and unplug devices every time, I just switch inputs to switch between them. It makes the ps4 games look amazing, way better than my 60" 4k TV. Great monitor, you won't be disappointed.

    1. The base depth is too long, for a flat monitor, you dont expect to take so much space, you can't push the monitor all the way back because the base. 2. The menu to setup is not easy to understand, I took back to the store thinking it was broken because it was not detecting my laptop, or another 2 computers, but turns out the auto detect it's not autodetect after all, the guys in store figured out, but took a while even for them that are experts. 3. Finally the most important one, the video, looks so bad. Images look dusty, a lot of dots on lines and edges, IF YOU DO GRAPHIC DESIGN, THIS IS NOT A MONITOR FOR YOU. I hate it. 4. This maybe a personal one, don't blame the monitor. When I see curved TVs, they look very sharp and the angle for viewing is perfect, bit comes out that if you have it so close, which is the case of a computer monitor, it's actually very uncomfortable, it was a mistake for me tu buy curved monitor. In a big TV is cool, not in monitor.

    Fair picture quality, but just like so many other manufacturers... it's as if the stand was a complete afterthought. We spend all of our time worrying about resolution and other tech specs (glad this has DisplayPort!) but it's not until we get the monitor home that we find out it has such a flimsy stand that the screen shakes when we start typing. Admittedly, this is in part due to the fact that I have an adjustable standing desk and there is going to be some motion transfer (as opposed to a solid wood desk with no play or movement whatsoever) but it's really, really crazy how much this thing wobbles with the slightest touch. I thought for sure that it would be better than some of the other, cheaper monitors out there, but it's just the same. For a screen this size, that weighs this much, it seems like more time should be spent engineering a stand that has a connection point bigger than a few screws and a few pieces of plastic. This may not be a problem for most buyers, but if you have a desk that has ever wobbled, ever, it could be an annoyance.

    There are a number of great monitors out there but if you want to have more than one monitor to create a larger screen for your laptop or desktop curved is the way to go. I have the larger Samsung curved monitors at my work office but for my home office where space was a little limited I opted for these. I did look at a few of the much larger single monitor widescreen curved screens but they were much more expensive for the size you get and the screen is too narrow ultimately. This monitor plus it's larger version have great width, great clarity and easy to place on your desk side by side for a perfect large two screen set-up. I don't know how they are for gaming as that's not my thing but for day to day work, etc they are fantastic. Likely going to get articulating screen mounts for these to add a third at some point so just be sure you buy mounts with the appropriate attachment.

    I bought this product at the best buy store in Bellevue. I took it home and low and behold it was broken. A crack on the lcd screen. My biggest mistake was to touch the screen to inspect it. Took it back immediately the next day and they refused to take it back saying the screen has been touched and we cannot replace. Quoting the sales person "We are not really obliged to do anything but we can give you a 10% discount if you buy another monitor". Needless to say I walked out, left the monitor there and will not be buying anything from best buy again. Tried reaching out to customer care but all they did was put me on long holds trying to connect me to regional manager.

    Hello readers I purchased this Samsung Curved 1080P monitor for a security system and the monitor I had was a older Samsung 720P. The cameras were Axis 1080P forensic cameras and I decided why not update the monitor too. Well I opened the box plugged the monitor in and like flipping a light switch the monitor was working THAT SIMPLE. I could not believe how different the side by side comparison was absolutely magical with the clarity and brightness. Yes I paid top dollar for it and must mention when I bought the Samsung curved 1080P monitor I happened to get the sale price of $70.00 off. That eased the wallet sting BUT I'm saying this it is worth FULL PRICE that's how amazing the quality is and the curved style looks really good too. Worth the money and YES I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. oh if you're in the market for security cameras the Axis 1080P cameras work perfectly with this monitor.

    Setting up a new workstation, I needed two monitors so went looking at Best Buy. The curved monitor caught my attention right away. They have the data import receptical (but doesn't come with that cable). With the minimal width frame, you almost cannot tell that it's two monitors side by side, it looks like one big one. The disc shaped base - i'm still getting used to. Its a dust collector and protrudes out in front of the monitor, less room for the keyboard. Wish the back was grey or black instead of white. Overall (so far) i'm a happy guy.

    After doing some research and LookAndSee reviewing in Best Buy stores between several monitors, I selected this one over the LG wide-screen gaming monitor. While I was hooked for a time on the widescreen, looking at videos made them look stretched out. I didn't like that. Bought this curved monitor instead with the sense in mind that curved monitors are supposed to be easier on the eyes...which helps my mid-40 year old mindset on not being so tough on my eyes. I'm glad I picked this one up. It does seem to help with the eye strain and the size seems just right. I debated between this and the 32" model but after having this one on my desk I'm pretty sure that 32" would have been a little much for my eyes to track things on. Videos are great. I mainly play World of Warships and I can tell a difference in the crispness of the colors. Overall, I believe this was a great find.

    I was very pleased with the quick processing of my order and i got my computer 1 day earlier than the day that was announced. The unit was set up within 15 minutes as it was all put together. The only issue was that the unit did not turn on right away as the power supply was probably just loose. I just "wiggled" a few wires and the unit turned on. I was surprised by the fact that the lights were not blue but white and the only lights are the lights on the fan which are white, but I am well pleased by the look. I had the added benefit that when I ordered the unit, it was on sale at 1800.00 but came on sale within a week at an extra 150 off and I was able to get a price match, so thank you Best Buy for the great customer service. I also purchased a screen which also got an extra 80.00 off, si I did "double dipping" :-) The unit is super fast and no issues at all for the 10 days I had it.

    Over the years I have had several computer monitors but this is the first curved monitors I have invested in. I am not sorry. It is a pleasure to work with, both for business and for pleasure. It is by far one of the sharpest in detail monitors I have ever had and the curved feature is very easy on the eyes. Many of my programs were able to "spread out" which enable me to more see many features which I was missing before. One of the biggest delights was the price. For just over $200 this is an investment that I consider has already paid for itself in reduced eye strain, increased readability, and ease of function. Go and find out for yourself!

    Bought this thing as a mid range monitor for a pretty average pc. Everything was great for almost a year. usage was not heavy as I do most work on my laptop. all of a sudden, right around the year mark, the monitor started acting funny. the screen just flashes and I cannot bring up the menu. Also of note the monitor does not respond to the power switch. The only way to turn it off is to unplug it while it is NOT connected to my pc. Currently when It is disconnected from everything the screen still flashes and I cannot bring up the menu. I have Not sen anything online to help fix it. Overall the screen loos and performs great, I would just be leery about dropping $300 on a screen for it to only last a year moving forward.

I would recommend this product, but would also give advice on not bumping the Screen. Try it and see what happen's. I lost Faith in Best Buy, what happened to Good Buisness ?

    I had always been looking at larger monitors to upgrade my 23" hp that has a very high DPI and at 14 years old, a very sharp monitor. After I had purchased it, I did a comparison and the 27" Samsung was bigger with 1/2 the DPI as what I have. Seems that most of the people and the company really directed the design of this monitor for gamers. After doing a visual comparison, I liked the monitor. It connected right up with my MacBook pro, i lost my ability to control volume from the keyboard b/c sound was directed through this monitor. Overall, its a nice monitor. Since my son's computer would not work with my 23" monitor, I just gave it to him. He's a gamer, he's on a PC, looks good, works fine, color is nice. I would have been more interested in it if it had the ability to be mounted on a wall like my existing one.

    Spending 8-10 hours a day working, I have two of these monitors and they work great. I use a laptop with usb docking station, so it's nice to have the speakers on the monitors for notifications. The laptop stays closed. The screen has no glare and it is so easy on the eyes to have the curve. The size is nice as well, as I have at least 5 different applications up and running, and I can access them all without having to minimize or cover one app completely with another. Even without eyesaver mode, the tone is easier on the eyes as well. A steal at $200 each for black Friday. Only con is there is no height adjustment, only tilt. Even though they sit at the correct height for me, everyone is different and I believe ALL monitors should have tilt AND height adjustment.

    Worst Monitor Ever - Major Disappointment

    When I bought this monitor I had high hopes. Had good reviews. I had the previous version and it worked flawlessly for years. My son is still using it. I bought this one which uses a joystick on the back to manage the settings and switch between video ports. Cumbersome but seemed to work. After two months, the HDMI port died. Sent it in for warranty repair. Got it back. It worked for another 7 months. Now it's doing the same thing it did before it failed. The HDMI port just quits working. No doubt the HDMI will fail again. I really believe the issue is with the joystick. As long as this feature is on Samsung monitors, I'll never buy another one.
