Hands-on with the Samsung SE790C Curved Monitor

We just got back from Samsung Philippines’ event at SM Megamall where they officially introduced the SE790C curved monitor in the country.

The monitor, Available in 27 and 34-inch screen size variants, offers an immersive and comfortable viewing experience with a 3000R curvature design that is said to more closely match the natural curve of a viewer’s eyes.

Also equipped with a 1080p or Ultra WQHD resolution of 3440×1440 pixels and offering 16:9 and 21:9 aspect ratio in a seemingly understated design depending on what size the monitor is, it packs multitasking features such as the ability to connect up to two input sources and view them side-by-side. The curved monitor can also create an inner box with its picture-on-picture function where an overlay can take up to 25% of your screen space and can be positioned anywhere.

True enough, the design presents itself to be subtle yet effective. The metal-finished sides and the arched TV stand is a thing of beauty. It does not distract you when your eyes are glued on the television, but rather enhancee the viewing experience.

We got a chance to take the monitor for a spin as we played Grid AutoSport on a custom-made race car platform powered by PCExpress for a short while. To say the least, the monitor really gives you the impression that the environment is closer to life. The details are sharp, vivid, and clear, and does not lack any color compensation.
