I am betting that you were not aware that king of displays Samsung offered a Samsung 34 inch monitor that is actually curved in the form of the Samsung 34-Inch Curved Screen LED-Lit Monitor. It’s really a sight to behold a curved display and one that’s actually so wide and curved, if you are accustomed to running three(3) separate monitors this is a better offering that allows you to actually have more screen real estate without those annoying bezels in the way to distract you from the viewing experience.
This monitor is as if you were to place two 20 plus inch monitors side by side and as I said earlier the Samsung 34-Inch Curved Screen LED-Lit Monitor s34e790c has no bezel for a distraction free viewing. This is definitely one of your best pics in the ultra wide monitors category that you must should seriously consider owning.
For those who want the specs at a Glance:

The panel itself of the Samsung 34-Inch Curved Screen LED-Lit Monitoris a VA panel which is a combination of the best features from IPS and TN monitors. TN monitors as you may realize are know for there fast response times and brightness and IPS has great color reproduction and hardly any shifting when being viewed at varying angles, this monitors tries its best to give you all the best features of both worlds so you can view at an angle without loosing any quality and this monitor is also very good at producing deep blacks for a better picture quality. The only problem that you might have is a lag in response times that may result in slight ghosting at times.
The Samsung s34e790c Stand
The stand has two predominant adjustment modes, so you can adjust the stand vertically to a height that you like and finally you can adjust the Samsung s34e790c by tilting it on its axis so that either down towards the ground or up towards the ceiling to a controlled point.
The mount that holds the monitor in place is really nice and sturdy and will not fail or break easy, this option is also optional as there is a visa mount in case you wanted to mount your monitor by alternative means which was a welcomed addition to have.
Menu Controls and Inputs
On the bottom left hand corner there is a joystick for controlling your device in menus by flicking it either up or down or pushing it just like a button for selecting in menu.
On the bottom right as seen above you have all the regular inputs which includes: power Jack, HDMI 1 and 2, display port and four (4) powered USB inputs for your pherifials .
In terms of display quality this monitor is smack in the middle between 1080p and 4K, also if you have a beast of a system to back this display up you are going to be in for quite the visual treat at 3440×1440 resolution. The viewing experience is down right gorgeous and is quite the visual treat or eye candy for the end-user that you simply have to experience to know what I am talking about. Also the feature called Picture by Picture allows you to input up to two devices on the same display and view them simultaneously side by side in real time on the monitor, so if you choose that could be two computers or whatever you choose.
