The Samsung CF791 is a quality screen, and a commendable first look at Quantum Dot technology. Picture performance is excellent without the need for adjustment. The resolution, size, aspect and curvature make for a viewing experience that is well beyond the average monitor. The focus is more on work and general entertainment, but with the 100Hz refresh and FreeSync support, plus a couple of settings available to improve response, it can put its hand to gaming very well too.
This isn’t quite a perfect display, but the niggles aren’t deal breakers. Although a 4ms response isn’t great for gamers, there are enhancements available to mitigate that, and it’s par for the course with most VA panels anyway. The menu isn’t quite as well organised as we’d like, and we would have preferred four rather than two USB ports. But at least there is a hub available.
The other niggle is the price.
The £800 tag is pretty high, and should be enough for 4K, but for a 34in curved screen with 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, 100Hz refresh and this level of image quality, it’s not so unreasonable. If you’re looking for a top-notch screen that can handle most things with aplomb, then the Samsung CF791 has plenty to offer.
