Samsung has revealed their new ultra-wide gaming monitor in the CJ89 lineup. The C43J89 is an ultra-wide curved gaming monitor (1800R) with a resolution of 3840x1200 that yields an aspect ratio of 32:10. The 43-inch bezel-less display is a VA panel that offers a 120 Hz refresh rate. The ultra-wide 3840x1200 resolution offers a 99% field of view and enables effectively using the monitor akin to dual 1920x1200 displays.

The use of the VA panel enables a high native contrast ratio of 3000:1 and deep blacks. However, Samsung hasn't listed any Freesync or G-Sync support implying no Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support. This being an 8-bit panel, native HDR support is also not available. The panel offers a 5ms GtG response time and a standard sRGB color gamut.

Connectivity wise, the Samsung C43J89 is fully loaded. There are 2 USB-C ports for connecting peripherals and smartphones along with an USB-C up port, 2 USB 2.0 down ports, 1 USB 3.0 down port, 1 HDMI 2.0 port, 1 DisplayPort 1.2 port, and a headphone jack. Since this is essentially two 1920x1200 monitors in one, there is a built-in KVM switch that can easily toggle between and control connected devices in each half of the display. Additionally, there are 5W bottom-facing stereo speakers on each side for loud enough sound. The display also comes with blue-light filtering and a flicker-free mode for reducing eye strain. 

With a fully adjustable stand and compatible VESA mounts, the Samsung C43J89 seems to offer a compelling option for gamers or those who require a wide field of view. However, the asking price of US$900 might put off many prospective buyers given the lack of gamer specific options such as VRR. Availability is expected later this year.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
