    u know that samsung using various panels for their tv right ?
    they been using AUO,sharp,innolux beside their own panels... for curved usually it either samsung or AUO panels

    cant say samsung panel = dead pixel galore... not especially if you only check yours (one) unit only
    but if you getting like 3-4unit that getting DeadPixel from 10unit... then its fair enough

    If it says Samsung on the TV it doesn't matter the slightest what panels they use. Its their fault from consumers perspective.

    Back to topic. If this 34" had G-Sync it would be something. 95% of gamers who would be interested in screen like this have NV graphics cards. I understand its cheaper this way but it still just wont sell in any meaningful numbers.

    So much technology and then I bumped into the resolution for the 27" one: 1920x1080. Seriously, Samsung? :3eyes:

    Cadmium-free is for the environment, I dont like the way they are referencing it to SUHD TV's.

    Love the 1ms VA panel. Hope more manufacturers will follow.

    The 27" CFG70 apparently has G-sync, according to the lady at ~8:08 :

    I'll keep looking for the elusive Eyefinity holy grail: 27-28", Freesync selectable ranges dipping into 30Hz/high 20's, VESA mount, very minimal actual bezel (edge to pixels) and no TN.

    Can the "sound interactive LED lighting" be disabled? The blinking lights would be quite distracting for me.

    Otherwise it's a wonderful gaming monitor, really love the monitor arm/stand (vertical adjustment allows the panel to reach the bottom).
