With Quantum Dot technology, Samsung's QLED gaming monitor provides an extreme upgrade in your gaming experience. Quantum Dot makes today's games appear more lifelike by delivering a billion shades of accurate color. The CHG70 QLED gaming monitor features support for High Dynamic Range (HDR), so dark areas are darker and bright areas are brighter. See mind-blowing detail and contrast as bright blue skies share the screen with deep shadows and silhouettes. The CHG70 supports AMD's Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, which gives gamers a smooth, plug-and-play HDR gaming experience with twice the perceivable brightness and color of that offered by the sRGB spectrum without distortion or visual distraction.

Blending its advanced motion blur reduction technology with its superior VA panel, Samsung has created this curved monitor with a super-fast 1ms MPRT (motion picture response time) that lets you enjoy unprecedented gaming performance without motion blur across the entire screen. The fast 144Hz screen refresh rate ensures you flawlessly smooth action scenes even in games with high frame rates. And you can adjust the refresh rate to 60Hz/120Hz when necessary. With a pixel density approximately 1.7 times higher than Full HD, the CHG70 delivers game scenes and characters in captivating detail, giving you a panoramic view of the whole battlefield so you can spot your enemy sneaking up on you from any corner.

Samsung C27HG70QQN - CHG7 Series - QLED monitor - curved - 27" is rated3.51 out of5 by39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lack of good QCCame everything looked good until I viewed a white cluster of pixels on a black screen for a $600 price tag I was hoping I would at least get a good panel but there's apparently no quality control for this monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!Beautiful colors and very good blacks. After trying three examples of Acer XV272P with dead pixels I went for this one and it was a good choice! I will always look for Samsung in the future when buying new gaming monitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Monitor for PS4 Pro GamingI upgaded from the CFG70 27" to the CHG70 32" for the added size, QLED, and HDR support on my Racing Cockpit. The HDR picture is absolutely breathtaking! To see the asphalt texture while racing at 180+mph puts this monitor through its paces. Perfect for creating detailed Liveries in Livery Editor mode in Gran Turismo Sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 Year and 2 weeks and died.So exactly 1 year and 2 weeks after purchase and the display is gone. Monitor worked well up until now. I used it for PC and XBOX. I was satisfied up until this point. I will see how Samsung handles their 1 Year limited warranty since I am 2 weeks past the date. Will update on how this goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defective Feature?Hello all,The main source of my digital entertainment comes from my Xbox One X. In July of 2017, I bought the new Samsung 32" CHG70 Gaming Monitor with Quantum Dot and at the time an Xbox One S. I dont know if the monitor has always been like this but one day while watching a TV show on Netflix, I noticed the screen lighting was very dark but I didnt know if it was always like that or if it had just happened before my eyes. I went into the settings and upon doing so the screen turned off for a second (which I think is for the HDR to deactivate) and then the lighting was back to normal and looked normal. When you go into an app or game thats supports HDR, the TV recognizes it, activates HDR and then BOOM, dimmed screen. So I go into settings, turn off "Allow HDR". Lighting is fixed across all games and apps but then there is no HDR.Side Note: Sometimes in that second of the screen flickering on/off to activate the HDR, there is a split second where the lighting is normal, the HDR is activated, it looks so perfect and so Vibrant and then it goes all dark. Also I now have an Xbox One X and these problems still occur.Is my monitor defective?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big gamble that I lost on.Bought this monitor Thonking it would be awesome HDR rich and a step up from the LG I had. Sadly the HDR hasn't worked in game since I got it, even resets won't kick it in gear. The worst is the terrible back lighthot spots. I have seen some pretty consistent monitor back lighting and this is the worst I have ever had ever. I suffer needing to send this back in because I know it'll take 3 weeks at my cost and I'll probably get another lemon. My suggestion is pass on it if your looking for HDR and even backlighting. However if your after very cartoon overwatch graphics use it in SDR with nvidia DV at 55%.Thanks samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful MonitorColors pop better than any other monitor I have ever seen. The contrast is great. 144 Hz refresh rate makes a big difference over 60 Hz panels in how smooth game play is.NO dead/stuck pixels. This monitor will get brighter than any other monitor I have ever owned.Text is sharp and easy to read.I have only had this for two days but so far I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor until the sleep issue pops upGreat monitor, wonderful picture.However, after about a year and a half the monitor begins to exhibit issues waking back up from sleep. The screen will have vertical lines and various artifacts. You can sometimes vaguely see the picture behind the artifacts. Monitor menu using the jog stick is completely non-functional afterwards. Generally 10 or so powercycles will cause the issue to go away. Have checked with support multiple times and no update has addressed the issue. This appears to be a common issue judging from reviews here and elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visual Quality Amazing - Response Above AverageI'm coming from the beast of response time monitors, the Asus VG248QE.I've been playing fast paced FPS games for 18 years now and I can say there is a slight difference in response time compared to the Asus (samsung is slower). It is very small, but it is there. However, I'm not fretting over it too much as the improvement in image quality is astounding and the overall size, with the curved screen, leads to a much improved overall experience. And if I am ever feeling the need for that extra 8ms back I can always switch to the Asus when playing games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want HDR, stay away from this modelI have Windows 10 fully updated and an NVidia 1080 Founders Edition with current drivers.Simply put, this is a beautiful in every regards other than HDR.Unfortunately, I got it for HDR features and am completely disappointed. I'm dissatisfied to the point I truly wish I never got this model.The problem is the HDR display is just awful. Text on a white background is blurred blue, black, and red as if I was trying to read 3D text without the 3D glasses (No, I don't have any 3-D display settings/options enabled in Windows or Nvidia). The white is so bright that it truly hurts my eyes and lowering the brightness just makes the entire picture look worse. With Windows 10 HDR options enabled many of my pictures are grainy and the color representation is abysmal. Many elements colored white become transparent over other elements. For example, my mouse pointer will become transparent when over any windows with exception to its black outline (no, this is not related to the pointer setting "hide mouse when typing").I've tried loading ICC color profiles and going through the windows color calibration. I have dual monitors, one a 24" LG 1080 gaming monitor and the Samsung C27HG70. The fact is, I'd trade someone for another LG even swap, this monitor is that bad. 100% buyer remorse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dead pixelsEverything was nice, even the box, but when I started it up there was a group of dead pixels. I think a company as big as samsung should take more care in the quality testing before they ship out. I am getting a replacement and hoping this doesnt happen again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good picture, terrible standI just received this yesterday, so my experience is somewhat limited. This monitor is huge! I'm upgrading from a 23" Samsung from several years ago, and the size difference is much more than I expected. The picture is very good, although it takes some tweaking. The out of the box settings provided an extremely bright image that hurt my eyes. Turning the "Response Time" setting to Faster or Fastest helps a lot with the screen brightness. The image is great, and I'm enjoying the extra screen real estate from the higher resolution.My biggest problem with this monitor is the stand. The stand takes up a massive amount of space on my desk, and extends several inches behind the monitor, so I can't put the monitor flush against the wall. This is more than just a space problem, it also means that I'm sitting too close to my monitor now. Samsung needs to ship this with a low-profile stand that takes up an inch of space or less behind it, otherwise why am I even buying a flat panel monitor?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for what it's worth, corners were cut.While this monitor is a great monitor, producing great quality colors for professional use and speed for gaming, you need to be ABSOLUTELY sure that it will be compatible with your PC setup. What I've found:1) This monitor does NOT come with integrated speakers. I'm not sure if this is common among monitors, but I assumed as all my past monitors have had integrated speakers, this would as well - Nope. Get your own. On the bright side, it does come with a headphone jack, however be careful where your speakers get their power. I have found when plugged directly into the monitor, all of my audio devices produce an annoying, quite noticeable buzzing. 2) HDMI may or may not work. Again, be sure you know this monitor will be compatible with your PC. I'm not tech savvy, but here's my graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X. I also have integrated audio. So not only does HDMI not transmit display at 2560x1440 with 144hz, it doesn't transmit sound. I found it only runs at 1920 60hz still not transmitting sound. 3) You may need to fiddle with your settings to ensure the colors are true. I find this to be the case in almost every review I've read, however this is something I have grown used to. But again, be sure this monitor is compatible with your card. If you don't have a graphics card that can deliver the power this monitor needs to function, you may find your monitor may glitch here and there. My graphics card is quite powerful, however as it stands, it may not have been the best choice for this monitor as I still find it glitches when restarting my computer. Luckily, you can save your settings to the monitor which is a Life Saver! 4) Just invest in a new stand. The stock stand is some boop. Just no. It's large and doesn't swivel far enough for it to even warrant keeping. Just... Garbage. In a nutshell, this is a great monitor for the cost. You get a great gaming monitor with the ability to handle almost true colors and excellent clarity. Not to mention it is excellent for multitasking and is easy on the eyes. Just be sure you get the right graphics card or be prepared to do some fiddling with it to get it to work. Once it's all set up, it works darn near excellent... Minus no speakers... the audacity I swear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great preformance! and overpriced :/this monitor will meet every spec you see, expect some are fitted with 4K pannels because the factory ran out of 2K pannels to put in them, wish they would unlock the 4k capability in the firmware though. anyway that's what contributes to the high price here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost perfect for xbox one xIt supports xbox 4k, 1440, 1080, and 720 resolution. Yes I know this is not a 4k monitor, but I am able to select 4k on the xbox. This monitor would be perfect if the monitor and xbox would work better together. By this I mean you have to play around with the settings to get the monitor and the xbox to 120 Hz. I played on my LG oled tv (great picture quality, but bad for gaming battle royal games) but this monitor is my favorite way to play now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GamingIts been probably nearly 10 years since I bought my last Samsung monitor, and this monitor makes me remember why I pay a bit extra for this brand. This thing is nothing short of excellent. I had a friend over to play a bit with Assassins Creed Odyssey, and he was stunned that it was only 2k. The level of detail in games is incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tech in a monitor, but got some issues.It's a cool monitor for a pretty high price. Yes, it's a fast gaming monitor, so be sure you have a good hardware (GTX 1080 is not enough to have a nice gaming experience). And yeah, the stand of the monitor really takes a lot of space on the table, and this space is wasted because of the shape.The backlight of monitor is kinda useless, I don't really understand this idea, it's too low to be a kind of ambient lightning and have only one color, nearly to 5500k white.It comes with heavily outdated windows software, that was deleted asap as I checked that it can do almost nothing.In every single game that I played I had to have HDR option off because it ruins the colorscheme (BF II, ME: Andromeda) or simply goes black (Far Cry 5, Wolfenstein II). Same goes to windows, when you turn on the HDR it goes off to colours completly.When you turn on some features on monitor, it lowers the maximum brightness (FreeSync cannot be turned on with Fastest Response Time) and it works not so obvious. Other interface in monitor works good, and it's easy to navigate with help of a 4-pos joystick on the back side of the monitor.I think that this product should come with a good software or for a lower price, but othen than that, it's a great gaming device that I would recommend to my friends and collegues.There are not a lot of monitors with this size and this resolution, but it worth it to have 2k on 27" because pixel looks very small and picture looks good and smooth. Add to this a 144hz and 1ms response time on a good colourfull matrix and viola - you got almost the best monitor on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gaming monitorI tried this monitor for 2 weeks and it's amazing within performance and quality. The only thing holding me from buy it is that is not g-sync capable, but hopefully the new version CHG75 is about to come out anytime soon, hurry up Samsung.What I have notice is that for gaming after 27 inch the monitors have to be curved otherwise the eyes get fatigue very quick rolling all other the screen, this model accomplished all in one package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xbox one X / PUBGI got this yesterday and followed a youtube setup to dial it in and all I can is wow. The HDR is a game changer. On my 4K TV that I use to play on I would encounter dark shadows and extremely dark rooms inside of buildings. Not anymore. I'm able to see in rooms and peek into buildings so easily now. Must have for serious or even weekend warriors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major Screen Flikering & "Not Optimum Mode" IssuesWhen loading up almost any game games or trying to play games at 1080P the monitor refuses to show anything except a "Not Optimum Mode" logo that bounces around the screen while game audio still plays in the background. I have to force restart my PC.Does not happen on HDMI, just DisplayPort. The screen also flickers a lot when loading up games, changing from dark to light sceens, or pulling up Radeon Overlay. Apparently flickering is not an issue with the 27" model, just the 32" one.I Recommend using HDMI (not DP) and buying the 27" model instead if you are wanting to play games. I do not recommend this 32" model for gaming at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performanceI bought this for PC gaming, and it hasn't disappointed. With my pc I sit around 250 fps in games like fortnite BR with the settings all the way up.The color is great, you can actually see blacks and go into caves without being blind.The picture is incredibly vivid and frankly this many hz is necessary for PC shooters. The main place I notice it is flicking to someone behind me, but whenever you move the screen a lot you'll notice it. The backlighting is pretty weak, it's a nice feature but it doesn't really show up. The display is so bright that I frankly don't notice it when gaming and still turn the lights on at night.This monitor is larger than most professional fps gamers use. This does make for larger images and a more immersive experience but it also means you're looking at more real estate to see things like notification or a shooter on the side of your screen. It's size does not impact performance.I don't generally like curved monitors but when you're sitting in the perfect spot all the time it's noticeably more immersive. I don't know if I'd try a TV that's curved as people watch from different positions but it's perfect for a monitor.Notice all of the 1 star reviews are about quality control (which frankly doesn't help show the performance of a working monitor, and is hugely in the minority for this monitor as well.(There's something about a samsung monitor and this one is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEAD PIXELS!I originallly bought this monitor about two weeks ago and right out the box it had dead pixels. I requested a return. And went ahead and order another one thinking it would be in complete satisfactory working condition for the price you pay. But I’ll have to say that was not the case. When the second monitor arrived, I tried setting it up and low and behold, more dead pixels and would only allow 720p. I will be returning this monitor too. I don’t plan on purchasing another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever had!I've been using this monitor for a couple months now, so I feel I can give an honest review. The colors are a little more muted than I expected. I expected the colors to be very bright with a high contrast, similar to other gaming monitors, but I find them to be a little more muted, meaning maybe slightly faded looking? This could be seen as a good thing though, as the screen isn't so bright to hurt your eyes after hours of gaming. I was a bit hesitant about the curved screen, as I've never used a curved screen for gaming, but I'll say I find the curve to make the gaming experience more immersive. It's as if you're closer without being physically closer. The colors and brightness I mentioned are miniscule with respect to this monitor as a whole. The picture is crystal clear, and I have zero problems with refresh rate. I look forward to gaming even more when using this screen, and the setup looks very professional. The ONLY thing I wish this screen had that I've seen on other screens is the option to add a hip fire dot in the center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could have been great if I didn't get a lemonI bought this monitor a little over a year ago, and it's been an exercise in frustration. From day 1 it had horizontal lines or static intermittently strewn across the screen or as the entire screen. I found that if I use HDMI instead of a Display connector that it lessened the issue, and I was very hesitant to send it in to samsung for repair, be out a monitor for a month, and potentially have them send it back still broken because it "seemed fine" for them. I've used two other monitors using the same ports in my GTX 1080 video card with no issue. The major problem is the issue has just gotten worse over time, and it's now showing lines every single time my computer comes out of sleep for a while before they seem to go away. I feel like I spent $650 on a monitor I'll only be able to use a little while longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor overdrive control and too much overshootI bought this monitor in october, and I'm very happy of the monitor color fidelity and contrast ratio. The big big problem is that overdrive is really poorly managed. The fract is that it's totally impossible to disable it, it's strobing backlight or "Standard" overdrive. And that leads to a lot of overshoot, especially when frequency goes under 120 Hz, and so Freesync is totally unusable. If Samsung would let us disable it or tweak it a little it that would correct all the problems. That's a pretty simple thing to do for them, just a little firmware upgrade that let us disable overdrive WITH and without freesync. But a lot of requests had been sent without any response, so one star is a good rating for the monitor. Paying that price for that is unaceptable. Correcting that and listening the consumers would make me put five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freesync does not support 120hzThe monitor is great, but I would like a patch that addresses the issue of freesync not supporting 120hz. I use the monitor to play my Xbox one x but I have to turn freesync off to play at 1440p 120 hz on my Xbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insane quality for the priceThis monitor has insane color accuracy really close to IPS and very deep blacks. I compared it to my old 1080p TN panel and the old one looks so washed out and weird brightness. No dead or stuck pixels whatsoever I ran a few tests on it, mine came with very warm colors I just set it to 7500K on Radeon settings and everything looks normal with really pure whites. Also this support 10 bit color!! Forget those banding you get on 8 bit.
