    It's a bit of a thing for Samsung as it seems. The C27F591FDU is actually highly curved at 1800R. This 27” panel has Multi-Domain Vertical Alignment at 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution an...

    Running 2560x1440 requires a lot more GPU power, and even now you need a fairly decent card to run at that resolution with game features turned right up. There is ABSOLUTELY NO POINT running 2560x1440 if you can't max out all in-game settings. Therefore, anything above 1920x1080 is still enthusiast with enthusiast spec requriements and PRICE. This monitor is a great choice as it is more budget friendly for the monitor itself, and better for the typical computer user.

    Sure, 2560x1440 woudl be better, but because of the price of the monitor, and the required hardware to get the full benefits of it, going this route wouldn't really be sensible from a business point of view. This is especially considering the competition in that market and the size of that market.

    This monitor is therefore ideal for the upper-mainstream user, the curved panel giving immersiveness and the nice VA picture, and people can actually make use of it from a performance point of view. Sure, some people go 2560x1440 or higher, but the very instant you start having game performance issues due to the resolution, or having to lower in game settings, the whole point of the higher resolution is defeated.

    Umm no, just because you don't have a GPU to push games at 2560x1440 doesn't mean you can't run your desktop and all other apps at 2560x1440.

    It also doesn't mean you can't run at a lower resolution besides 2560x1440 for your games since most monitors support multiple resolutions and maybe get a better card down road and not have a monitor that is OBSOLETE out of gate already stuck at 1920x1080.

    I disagree, I have a 670 and game @ 1440 and i'll always turn down settings before turning down my resolution, in fact, majority of the time if i'm forced to lower my res it means the game is simply too demanding to play at a decent frame rate at all.

    That's my point though. You go to 1440 for a better picture, then you turn down other graphical feature. It defeats the purpose. I think 1440P is great! but only if you can actually support it. That means gaming with other settings set to max.

    Sure, there are other things you use the computer for, they can simply buy a different monitor if they aren't happy with it!

    I had a chance recently to see one of these curved monitors from Samsung first hand. I wasn't impressed. Seems more like a gimmick than better tech.

    Ill take 2560x1080 instead for curved monitor.

    And guess what, 1080p was not even maintstream for console or PC untill 2006-2007 after PS3 launch. And that was mostly for TVs not pc monitors.

    Current VA panels give very natural colors with good contrast ratio and black point.
    But they have some color pitch if wathing from wider angles.
    Thats why Curved VA panels comes with help..
    So its looks like good concept, just resolution and brightness is not for evryone.
    Hope one day they start made bigger curved 21:9 on VA panells.

    It means the curve is measured based on a circular radius of 1800mm

    I like it being MVA with Freesync. However the curve contradicts its resolution. The tight curve suggests a closer viewing distance, but sitting that close you can easily notice the pixels in 1080p stretched to 27"

    Especially since the res is only 1080p 60hz is quite low for a freesync.

    What devices out there that you would spend this much money on / buy such a nice panel for, would be using VGA (D-Sub) ?

    (Genuine Q, they're obviously still adding them to displays for a reason)

    Surely anyone buying a display like that would have a GPU with at minimum, HDMI / DVI

    Never ever will I go back to 1080p. Heck, I was on 1200p when 16:10 was still a thing. Now on 1440p, and it can only get wider.

    A curved monitor at only 1920x1080? No...just...no.

    Nonsense. There's plenty of superfluous settings which can be disabled to achieve 60 fps at 1440p without having to have a luxury card. You definitely don't need to max out the settings.

    I personally don't even like some settings such as motion blur or depth of field. If I wanted a blurry experience I'd get a crappy monitor. One of the biggest offenders is SSAO/HBAO, in some games it makes little difference at the cost of a ton of GPU resources. SSAO is the posterchild of superfluous, it's one of those things which you only notice if you stop and look for it. Game textures and light reflections are not advanced enough for it to matter.

    It's not 2004 anymore. In fact I never used 1080p for more than a few months. I went from a 23" 1152p VA to a 23" 1080p e-IPS for a few months to a 27" 1440p 10 bit AH-IPS, no turning back now boy.

    Absolute BS. On 1440p since my gtx 770 days and would never go back to a 1080p no matter what. Games with lowered settings (chiefly AA) look vastly superior on 1440p than they ever did maxed out on 1080p. Another factor that weighs in is screen size. Larger screens = greater visual impact and immersion. But 1080p cant do above 24" without pixelation. 27" ideal for 1440p and even larger. Even my 27" is beginning to feel small nowadays so looking for larger size (32") as potential upgrade. PPI on 1440p 32" is same as 1080p 24" btw.
