A big screen for a small price
This ultra-wide screen from Samsung is a 34-inch diagonal panel, or 86 cm for fans of the metric system, in UWQHD resolution (3,440 x 1,440 pixels). The display technology is VA which emphasizes contrast and deep blacks like OLED, and this is confirmed with an advertised contrast ratio of 3000:1. But, this display quality comes at the expense of the refresh rate which here is only 75 Hz.
In terms of ergonomics, this screen is only tiltable up and down, while others are height adjustable and swivel. It is also compatible with the VESA 100 x 100 mm standard. On the back, you will find a kind of joystick acting as an on / off button, but which also allows you to configure the settings for brightness, contrast, sharpness or to change source and mode.
For office and (a little) gaming
The connectivity of the Samsung LS34J550WQRXEN includes two HDMI ports, a Display 1.2 port and a 3.5 mm jack port. It’s not much, but it’s enough to transfer a multitude of multimedia content. With Picture-by-Picture functionality, you’ll be able to view two different sources in their native resolution and navigate between them easily thanks to the monitor’s widescreen format. Convenient for juggling from document to document, during a work meeting for example.
If it is mainly dedicated to office automation, this PC screen also has a gaming touch with AMD FreeSync included in it. Your screen will adapt to the performance of your graphics card, but will not exceed the refresh rate of 75 Hz. Very nervous or multiplayer games such as Call of Duty are therefore not the best choice for this monitor. On the other hand, the response time of 4 ms should not constitute an annoyance during your games.
