[Staples] Samsung 27" Curved FHD VA Monitor with AMD FreeSync Technology - LC27F396FHNXZA $199

I came across this monitor while browsing the deal section as I'm trying to fill up my cart to check out. Looks like a good deal. Maybe stackable with $10 off with $75+. Pickup is already OOS. Shipping is the only option I could see. Review looks good on this as per the Staples website. It does not seem to be mountable as per the pictures. I did not buy this monitor as I don't need one but just wanted to put it out for everyone else that may need one.

Not listed in those specs is the refresh, which is 60 Hz for anyone who is wondering, still a good deal but FreeSync goes to waste with such a normal refresh rate.

A little but it would look nice on a reception desk.

I find curved works well on ultra-wide or 30"+, in cases where you can't have dual monitor/triple monitor setup because of space

I would say 24" curved is a gimmick, 27+ monitor curves are all actually useful lol

I have the 23.5" one (CF390). For whatever reason it took ages to ship, but it's good for doing work on. Curved was a bit weird at first, but I'm used to it now. Note that both these monitors only have 1x HDMI, and VGA(!?). No DisplayPort or DVI.

I only paid $10 less than this too.

Have the exact same model but with this price, I’d definitely recommend you to get it. Great size, quality is good I never regretted getting one.

Twisted Nematic features very fast pixel response time but lousy viewing angles and worse colour reproduction. If you play a lot of fast paced, quick twitch games and colour accuracy is not paramount for your task at hand, this is a good choice as long as you're viewing the screen straight and not at an angle.

This article is pretty outdated, but it will give you a general idea:
https://www.pchardwarehelp.com/guides/l ... -types.php

The Samung monitor in the original post is a VA panel. Many people look down on VA panels, but other than OLED, VA panels have produces the best blacks. It all depends on what you want the monitor for.
