I've been looking for a decent enough 24inch monitor for a while but keeping coming across 27inch plus at only 1080p. This seems like a good compromise to me.

The only curved monitor with super-fast 1ms response time

Applying Samsung's advanced motion blur reduction technology to its superior VA panel, Samsung has succeeded in creating the industry's first curved monitor with a super-fast response time of 1ms (MPRT) that lets you enjoy unprecedented gaming performance without motion blur across the entire screen

Any reason in particular?


I've read in forums that Samsung fixed some of the issues this model has with the new one, and since it has dropped at this price before i will wait.
I bought 3 of these last week at this price and am very happy. I not using it for gaming mind, but they are marked improvement on my previous screens.

Hot
Word of warning to anyone thinking of buying this monitor for gaming. It has a terrible problem with purple "smearing" which made it useless at 144Hz for me. I bought it when it was at this price at John Lewis, returned the first one for a replacement thinking it was just a faulty unit, received the second one and had exactly the same issue. Then sent it in to Samsung asking them to upgrade the firmware if possible as I'd read in forums that it could help matters, they did absolutely nothing and sent it back to me in the same state.

I like everything else about the monitor so decided to stick with it in the hope that Samsung do eventually fix the problem through a driver/firmware update, but it means I'm limited to 120Hz for gaming. It's looking less and less likely that Samsung are going to fix it, especially now that they've released the newer model.
hell alot of ghosting if ur into fps games

Doesn't this have Samsungs blur reduction software? I think you enable it in the monitors menu
Bought 2 not long ago, fantastic for PC gaming.

Word to the wise, the screens are 23.5 inch. I noticed this more as I had 24 inch monitors previously. So a little bit smaller, but the quality makes up for it.
Got this and it's superb

So you can restrict to 120hz in settings?

Really wanted this monitor for gaming but not if it's going to be a big problem. Any alternatives you'd recommend for sub say £225/£250?
I believe I'm looking at this

You can restrict to 120 hz in settings. I haven't noticed smear issue. I do like it wish it was HDR but that's nascent.

Quantum Dot is amazeballs. Good one
I recently picked up the C24FG73 in a Curry's sale for £199.99 (actually £186 using 6.5% company discount from Edenred; and unfortunately its no longer on sale).

There are a few things I have noticed:

* Extremely bright (going from a Dell 2410)
* Certain shades of grey come out slightly pinkish
* You can change the response mode: Standard, Faster, Fastest in the display menu, but this makes things more pink. I didn't really notice this in fast paced games but might be noticeable to others.

Despite this I am happy with this display despite those things and I think the differences between this and the model I have are subtle, but maybe enough to hold out for it to go on sale again.

The day 4K HDR hits this price<3

The 73 uses same panel, the only change is the stand and the removal of the mood light thing (not a big thing). Samsung fixed the panel in later revisions of the 70 version so if it's a newer build it will be just the same as 73 and have very little smearing.

If you can get the 73 for the same then pick it up but the saving here is good enough to justify getting it. Wouldn't worry tbh
The purple issue is only when freesync is enabled (I'm sure I read they fixed the issue too and it was just a bad batch). I'm using 144hz with no issues whatsoever with my GTX 970. Bought mine for the same price as this around 10 months ago.

FreeSync has always been disabled on mine and I had the issue with both monitors using a GTX 980.

I've got a 970 too but my friend reckons I'd only be able to see the benefit from 144hz if I turned all my game settings down to low. He reckons I'd be better off going for an ips panel. What's your experience? Can this panel and my gfx card handle any modern games?

An IPS panel potentially will look better but it costs a lot more to get one with 144hz and 1ms response time. This VA panel is designed to be a happy medium with the response time of a TN panel but improved colour with quantum dot technology.

Also, you don't necessarily have to turn everything down to low. Install FRAPS and measure your frames on a game per game basis. Get a happy medium between frames and looks. Obvious at 144 frames you are getting the full potential of 144hz but sometimes I settle with anything over 100 if it means it looks a little better.

I might be wrong then. I do know that not all of them are affected as mine is fine. Have you contacted Samsung? A Google search shows there is a firmware fix.

When it sent the second one back to Samsung for repair they said it was already on the latest firmware and did nothing with it. They just sent it back. This was around 9 months ago though - have they updated the firmware since then? When playing games on mine at 144Hz, the screen flickers with purple colours every few seconds and eventually sticks like it, leaving all darker colours looking bluish/purple (see below). The only way out of it is to switch back to 120Hz and then the colours return to normal. I just have to leave it at 120Hz now.33707568-bM1SA.jpg
