Got something like R21 000 lying around? And If both ultra-widescreen and curved computer monitors are all the rage these days, then Samsung’s new SE790C display is supremely fashionable.
The 34-inch, 3,440 x 1,440 LCD has both a super-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and a gentle arc, combining two trends in one. Supposedly, this all-encompassing design produces a “3D-like” effect that brings you into the action — that’s not difficult to believe seeing that we were proven otherwise at the Curved UDHTV launch, but the screen will at least look futuristic sitting on your desk. Just don’t expect it to make your photos pop. Although the SE790C covers all of the sRGB color range, it’s using a middle-of-the-road VA (vertical alignment) panel rather than something particularly vivid, like IPS (in-plane switching). Given that we haven’t seen this wonder with our own eyes nor a young hands-on, it’s hard to know if this represents a good deal. Though, priced at R21 000 and an assurance of 34-inch amazing it could be an
good outlandish pricey way to immerse yourself in games and movies.
