At IFA 2018 yesterday, Samsung took wraps off its new C34J791 monitor. The CJ79 is a 34-inch curved ultra-wide monitor with a curvature of 1500R. The monitor can be hooked up to PCs and Macs and comes with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which allows connecting peripherals at up to 40 Gbps while simultaneously charging them.

The CJ79 is in the same ultra-wide category as the CJ89 that was launched last month. The CJ89 is an ultra-wide 1800R curved panel that is available in 43-inch and 49-inch variants with a resolution of 3840 x 1200 and 3840 x 1080 respectively. While the CJ89 offers a larger screen estate and more curvature than the CJ79, it does not offer Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.

The 34-inch curved display in the CJ79 is a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio of 3000:1 and a brightness of 300 cd, which should be more than enough for indoor environments. The high native contrast ratio should result in inky blacks and more punchy colors compared to a conventional IPS panel while still offering a wide 178 degree viewing angle. The ultra-wide resolution of 3440 x 1440 yields an aspect ratio of 21:9. Samsung says the monitor has a Grey-to-Grey (GtG) response time of 4ms but it will be interesting to see what the Black-to-White (BtW) response time is. 

Apart from the two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the CJ79 also comes with 1 HDMI port, 1 DisplayPort, and 2 USB 3.0 ports. The adjustable stand supports tilt and height adjustment and the monitor is also VESA complaint for wall mounting. There is no mention of the display being 10-bit so in all likelihood, the CJ79 does not support HDR standards such as HDR10 or Dolby Vision. However, the CJ79 supports AMD FreeSync for tear and stutter-free videos and gaming.

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.
