About this deal
A1000R curve! Really!? This probably is Samsung's way of compensating for the abysmal viewing angles of its VA panel. There's still some vignetting at the edges. This also rendered my (branded) monitor lamp obsolete, so now I have get a new curved unbranded lamp. Not the best form for productivity too as things look warped, I was so annoyed by this that I booked a return within an hour of setting up and then cancelled it after a day because of dearth of good non-OLED HDR monitors in India. I think I'll get used to this over time, but really 1800R would've been just perfect. The only redeeming quality is that the games still look great with this curve.
The stand is substantial. There’s is a bit of wobble at the pivot point, but no more than one would expect from such a large panel. Adjustments include 4.7 inches of height, 15 degree swivel to either side, 9/13 degree tilt and a portrait mode. We’re not sure when one would use a 1000R curved monitor in portrait mode, but if you think of a reason, this is one of the only such screens that can do it.Loadedaxe said:Nope! too much for a 2560x1440 Monitor, I don't care how good it is. Maybe 2 years ago, but not today.
We’ve always been fans of the 32-inch, 16:9 format. The C32G75T is just like that, only curved. You’d think a 1000mm radius would be extreme, and it is, but it doesn’t call as much attention to itself as the photos suggest. Working on documents was just as easy as if the screen were flat. At a 2 or 3-foot viewing distance, image distortion wasn’t noticeable.
As curvy as it gets
Don't believe in Display 400 or 600 HDR certifications from other monitor brands. They mostly use edge lit dimming or have fewer localdimming zones (typically less than10 to 100) The 1196 zone FALD works like a charm in turn making both the HDR and SDR content look fantastic. Very little blooming, great peak brightness and great contrast for a non-OLED.
