Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Monitor but Not a great for Mac usersI was looking for a less costly version to the goto Apple compatible displays and don't really need 5K, so thought I would give this monitor a try. I am pleased with the picture quality & picture performance, but unfortunately that is where it ends.The good:Picture Quality for a non-5K display is goodCurved screen is much better than I had anticipatedThe USB hub built into the display gives me options to plug in my other Apple DevicesThe not so good:No Volume Control from MacOS using Thunderbolt (just crazy)Doesn't provide ability to control any display settings from MacOS like the other manufacturer (such as brightness and volume)Joystick control is not in a very convenient to reach place and you have to use it to do anything with this monitor (another dig on the fact you can't adjust anything via MacOS)After using this monitor for a few weeks, I have ordered the 5K display from Apple as I just really miss:Volume ControlBrightness ControlAutomatic DimmingBuilt-In CameraIf you use your own speakers, don't need a camera, really don't want to spend the money on a 5K display & don't think you will need to adjust brightness or have MacOS automatically dim, then this could be a good monitor for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung Monitor with thunderbolt ports for the winAn ultra wide monitor with thunderbolt ports from Samsung?? What more can you ask for! I was surprised with how huge the box was when this flagship monitor came in. I felt like I ordered a new television. The ultrawide 34" screen makes you feel immersed as you watch movies or play games 21:9. I also love the sound quality this monitor makes. It almost felt like a surround sound system and I was amazed as how great the stock speakers were. Some specs of the CJ791 is that it has a refresh rate of 100hz, 4ms response time, 3440x1440 screen resolution, and a contrast ratio of 3000:1. Although it isn't an IPS monitor, the QLED technology covers more than 125% of the sRGB color space making it a great monitor for video editing as well. It's a productivity monster when I used Adobe Premeire for video editing. I could fit the whole time onscreen and then some! The CJ791 also comes with AMD free sync and a game mode optimizing responsiveness and screen lag. The thunderbolt connections take the win for this monitor giving it the crown for one of the first monitors from Samsung with this connectivity. It can transmit video and data at speeds of up to 40Gbps — 8 times faster than USB 3.0 — and simultaneously charges devices (up to 85W), all over a single cable. Thanks to the Insiders for letting me test out another great product from Samsung! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Thunderbolt 3 widescreen monitor You needI was very interested in this monitor, because I have a Razer Blade 15" 2017. For those not familiar, that is a gaming laptop with a Thunderbolt 3 port. As soon as I turned it on I just had to click ok for a pop up for the Thunderbolt 3 and the monitor showed up right away. Essentially I can have three screens by cutting the Samsung monitor in half and keeping my laptop on. This is a productivity monster. The QLed was another component I was interested in and boy does it have a bright crisp color on the screen. I do not own a MacBook with a thunderbolt 3 port, but I can say with certain that it works without a hitch and is a must buy for those on the market for a widescreen monitor with thunderbolt 3 windows PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No docking station requiredI have had this monitor for 2 weeks now and it is amazing. First, it is like having two monitors in one but it takes up very little desktop space. The curved screen is ideal for this set up, a similar effect to having two monitors with each one angled toward the viewer. Second, the picture is amazing - I have never had a high-quality picture for a computer monitor since I use it mostly for work but the 4k definitely is easier on the eyes. My kids have even watched some movies on it and love it! Third, and probably the most amazing feature is the Thunderbolt connection. This means no docking station is required. My keyboard and mouse dongle and USB hub is plugged into the back of the monitor. Just one cable connected to my laptop and the monitor and it functions without a dock. It charges the laptop too. This makes it such a clean setup. I love this monitor and now thinking about getting one for my wife's office! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant change sources between TB3 PortsI have had this monitor for nearly two weeks. Overall I love it! The picture is good, nice contrast and great response even for gaming. The size, resolution and aspect ratio combine wonderfully allowing your productivity to increase over similar 16:9 screens.There are two major negatives that I can't get over and a couple of other small glitches as well.1.) You switch sources between the TB3 inputs on the monitor. This is my biggest annoyance. I have a macbook pro with tb3 and a razer laptop with tb3 and there is no easy way of switching between the input sources. I have to power cycle the monitor and turn off the device that I don't want to use. You also cannot do PIP between the two TB3 ports which well...thats annoying.2.) Samsung made the poor decision to not have a dedicated power button. It takes 3 button presses to turn off the screen. Can't understand the thought process here it's really frustrating especially when I have to constantly power cycle the monitor due to the first problem I have with this monitor.One minor issue - depending on the frequency you do it - it takes a good 15-20 seconds to switch inputsLastly the built in USB hub sometimes doesn't power on the devices plugged in (i only have a keyboard/mouse attached). When this happens you may have to unplug and plug back in your peripherals or turn off the monitor, unplug everything, turn the monitor back on and then plug everything back in. All of these problems were identical across two different monitors, my first was exchanged due to a faulty OSD joystick controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Display is great, USB ports not working on Win 7I did buy this monitor mainly because of it's thunderbolt support and ability to connect pheripherals. When it comes to the display itself, it is awesome, it is a huge productivity boost.I am using Dell Precision 7520 workstation, having all drivers up to date, but windows cannot find the drivers for the usb controller.However, everything works with Macbook Pro computer, so the problem is not in the hardware.I managed to have chat over an hour online with Samsung support. It was surely very polite discussion but useless, since i got the same questions over and over again, like which cable am I using. I requested to have a contact with technical support which was simply ignored.Now I tried to send an email from the website and it is impossible! After filling the form the response is "no session".Let's see if the review goes through.If I'm not getting the solution to the problem, I'll return the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful MonitorBeautiful. This monitor is absolutely beautiful. From the moment you unpack it till you finish using it for the day, this is just a gorgeous piece of equipment. Positives:- Amazing to look at… even when off- No eye strain, even after a 10 hours of constant use- Great connection options- Fast refresh times- Excellent resolution- CurvedNegatives:- Back cover for cord management is flimsy- ExpensiveThis monitor replaced two IPS 19’’ monitors. When using those, I had noticed that I could not sit in front of them for a long time; but with this Samsung monitor, I can spend an inordinate amount of time without any eye strain or feeling uncomfortable. While a curved TV seems like a gimmick, using a curved monitor is absolutely amazing. You sit close enough in front of the monitor that having a curved screen actually seems to “envelop” your view. The colors are comparable to the older IPS monitors, but the single wide screen monitor really makes everything immersive as there is no “break” in content. The biggest negative that I could find is the price. This is an expensive product, no way around it. The other minor quibble is that in order to “hide” the power and connection cord in the back of the monitor, the back plastic plate is really flimsy and can easily fall out as there isn’t a locking / snapping mechanism. Fortunately, once set, this becomes a moot point.I recommend this for anyone looking for a top of the line monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Worthy TB3 Monitor for Apple UsersI completely revamped my set up away from a 2017 MacBook Pro 13" to a 2018 Mac Mini. Although I had a Dell 4k monitor, a widescreen monitor was on my short wishlist for the new set up. Monitor is gorgeous aesthetically. Display quality is top notch and having a single cable connection via TB3 is a boon. Daisy chaining several TB3 devices was a must - Lacie 2Big RAID, BlackMagic external ECU - and this monitor works perfectly. Great for Final Cut Pro. Great for working with two documents, such as an Excel worksheet and a Powerpoint PPT alongside. Highly recommend this monitor!
