waste of money lol

TurboFlush says:

Windows should allow you you adjust your task bar.. simulated multi monitors. This would help with screen snap and the super long task bar.
Perhaps someone can write . Program to do this.

Also.. these days.. there is no excuse for games not to allow you to fully customize your hud. At a minimum scale it to the center of the screen so it doesnt end up on outer edges.

Money thrown away.

This is selling now just under a $1000. For the same price I’ve been running 3 Qnix 2710s in Nvidia Surround for a res of 7680×1440 with many games at full specs for over three years. . 1080p – What a joke!

Linus says:

I ever understood the concept of widescreen; why not just bigscreen? Or high screen? Why wide?

Phallusy says:

It was made to accommodate my penis.

ViktorWTF says:

I had this monitor for 1 day, then i returned it.
The giant screen is cool, but overkill… indeed the resolution is low in comparison to cheaper monitors, and I tried to usa a full resolution with Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock, and the games just crashed, IMO it’s not worth it.
Sorry for my bad english, not my native language.

32:9 display would be good to watch Ultra-widescreen 3.6 / Anamorphic 3.6:1 videos & movies.

I heave some interesting thing to tell you about the display tehnology so here is what i want to tell you:
In most of my time siting in front of the computer monitors is bad for my eyes and the reason for that in one of the cases is the monitors backlight wich is the main reason for displayng the correct image and making the colors acurate , what it that means?
Whel the common reason for eyes fatigue is the blue color and flickering of the monitors, so the thing here is that this days every manufaturers are macking the monitors backlight from the blue led with yelow filter in it so it could produce white light, butthis is not the best way to make the pure white light.
In your option you heave created QUANTUM DOT liquid so when they are hit by light sors they are getting bright and strong colors, in that idea you make the quantum dot film and added in the monitor to produce more light and to block the blue light from the backlight blue led, but i still can see the blue light penetrating the filter that you added to prevent the image distortion.
No mater what i tried to change on the monitors settings i could not make the colors precise and acurate becoase that stupid BLUE LED. AAAAhhh i’m sorry becoase this tipe of review but if you are the manufacturer to make the change of the perfect color display of the monitors perspective then i beg you to make the pure WHITE LED and for the baclight uniformity make it to be DIRECT BACLIGHT WLED
so it could heave more strong colors and contrast and that is one of the main thing to do, as for the second option is to replace the liquid cristals wit QUANTUM DOT liquid cristals to produce more wibrant and strong colors + the filter in the backround to increase the light from the background led to heave more bright picture overall.
Now i will make some interesting set for the minitor specs of the panel types:

– TN panel liquid cristals to be replaced with QUANTUM DOT cristal and to heave pure WHITE LED in the backlight sorce and QUANTUM DOT film and the backlight WLED to be direct so it could produce more strong colors and contrast, with this options we can see much better picture with vibrant and acurate colors iven on the TN panel with lowest input lag.
– VA panel to heave pure WHITE LED in the direct backlight LED sorce and QUANTUM DOT film. The bigest problem with VA tipe of panel is the purple ghosting of moving images and this need to be fixed with the software.
– IPS or PLS in your case also the light sorce to be the DIRECT WHITE LED with QUANTUM DOT film to produce the best picture quality with high contrast and bright image and colors, so this is going to be the best type of monitors panel from all the other types of panels ever made so far.
From all that i heave been sayd i want you to know that if there is someone to make the PICTURE PERFECT display that is you SAMSUNG and i hope that you can sucseed in that to make the best products for every person out there as i am one of them to be your costomer from very long time becoase you heave quality products and costomor sopport and i thank you for that.
I’m sorry if i create bad or wierd review but that is my thout for the future of monitor technology.

Old news a new 1 is comming with 5K resolution….

Lars A G says:

The problem is the 1080px vertical resolution standard. What happened to 1200px?

Artiom Brun says:


thomas deering says:

honestly the screen needs to be taller just to match closer to the width so the games dnt get cut out and it would raise its support for use with games and movies that dont have the insane widescreen options.

Jason Hee says:

Best monitor to play tetris

BaconMan 7806 says:

Imagine a monitor that literally surrounded you

TheDrunkenAlcoholic says:

im sorry but the best part of this was when you introduced the sponsor “Speaking of stupid.. todays sponsor isn’t” in a very convincing voice, lol

Phil CQConstruction says:

I found the Burson to sound better than the Massdrop

UItraVice says:

It would be better if it wasn’t just horizontal. This makes it so it barely can fit everything on a screen so most of it is Un-used space

jake nikolia says:

I seen this thing on display at London drugs and omg it was dope but yeah the 1080p is the down side at that size but still dope

J.A H says:

Tuve un monitor de esos y la verdad no me gusto… la imagen se ve genial pero prefiero uno más alto
