Decent option if you're not wanting a larger res panel / or don't have the gear to drive a higher res panel and make use of that 144Hz rate. It does carry Freesync as well, which should smooth things out with gaming. Oh yeah, response time is 1ms, if you were wondering

Product information
The lightning fast response rate of Samsung's C24FG70FQU monitor is ideal for serious gamers. But with high contrast, adjustable refresh rates and colour boosting Quantum Dot technology, any content looks stunning on this Full HD 1080p super-spec computer screen. A fully positionable curved screen means you can view comfortably for longer, while Preset Gaming Modes and the Arena Lighting feature enhance the gaming experience.

Super Fast Response
Samsung have created the first curved screen with response time of 1ms MPRT so you can enjoy amazing graphic performance, whatever you are viewing or playing, without motion blur, across the entire screen.

Stunning Visuals with Quantum Dot Colour
With an adjustable refresh rate up to 144Hz you'll enjoy flawlessly smooth gaming. A high contrast ratio of 3000:1 ensures deep blacks and brilliant whites to maximize depth and dynamism across the image. Quantum Dot technology delivers a richer and more realistic colour palette (sRGB 125%), so whatever you're viewing, content is crisp, clear, and really comes alive. And with Eye Saver and Flicker Free technology, you get less eye fatigue so you can keep playing for longer.

Professional Level Gaming
In-built Preset Modes optimize settings (black gamma, contrast and sharpness) depending on the genre of game, so whatever you're playing, it'll always look as good as possible. The monitor's on-screen menu is designed to blend seamlessly with game interfaces, and the frame even features Arena Lighting which is audio-synched with your gaming to enhance the experience with a gently pulsing light show.

Curved Screen
The 1800R screen has a 1.8m radius of arc to provide a wider field of vision and enhanced depth perception, which not only creates a more immersive experience but also allows eyes to track the surface quicker than on a flat screen.

No Choppy Gaming
Samsung has incorporated AMD FreeSync™ technology, which is designed to prevent broken frames and interference while you're gaming. It works to improve the line of communication between the monitor and processor, so you can remain ahead of the game and not be playing catch-up.

Precise Positioning
With a dual-hinged arm you can accurately place the screen at just the right level and angle, better for your posture, and giving you the edge in your virtual contests.

Common 1440p screens

Curved 24in is pointless and degrades image quality, unless you sit 1ft from the screen.

A curved 1080p monitor? Why?

Why do most monitors carry AMD FreeSync instead of NVIDIA G-Sync? The amount of monitors i see on this site and they're all awesome spec and great looking but have AMD technology over my preferred NVIDIA.

I have 2 lower spec Samsung 24" curved monitors rigged up for my home office. Much better than flat screens.

The hint is in the name.. FreeSync doesn't cost the manufacturer anything, G-Sync has licensed tech, which costs $$. Opensource will win the war on this one, as monitor prices are a race to the bottom.

G-Sync is proprietary so manufacturers have to pay heavily to include the tech in their monitors, which has pushed it into the £400+ monitor bracket. There may be extra development and production costs too with G-Sync too, I'm not an expert on monitor technology.

The reason AMD FreeSync monitors are more common than Nvidia G-Sync monitors is due to the difference in implementation, licensing and suitability of price point.
G-Sync requires the uses of a proprietary chip in the monitor to achieve the anti-tearing capability. Whereas FreeSync does not, it achieves it on the GPU via the adaptive abilities of Display Port. This means the cost of implementing G-Sync is more (more hardware + license cost to Nvidia) and thus companies can only justify this cost on higher end gaming monitors where they CAN charge more and consumers ARE WILLING to pay more for a premium product.

Over time, I would expect more mid-tier gaming monitors to feature G-Sync but it may a while.

Reference article - G-Sync vs FreeSync

This is a really good monitor for the price, VA panel, 144hz, freesync... don't think you can get a better gaming monitor for this price.

I have this panel its really good. stand sucks tho

Presume it's not IPS?

why dont you just get a 4k tv?

The exact same deal went to minus 136 degrees just over a week ago. Go figure...

​Freesync is free for companies to use in their monitors, g-sync requires a nvidia chip which they have to pay nvidia for which increases the costs of monitors so it's easier for companies to use Freesync as they don't have to pay for it and it makes them more money.

this is an excellent monitor! Heat! The only thing that puts me off is the curve.

It's a VA panel. So better than TN imo. I've got it. 35 days to return if not happy with it. So far so good. Stand is balls though can't have it up against the wall so bear that in mind.

I own this monitor, AMA.
