3. Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL

samsung-lc24f390fhwxxl
Best Budget Curved Monitor
  • A curved full HD display
  • Immersive viewing experience
  • Stable 60Hz refresh rate

Curved monitors are still far away from being a mainstream standard among masses. Samsung is one of the front-runners in this technology setting standard for other brands to follow.

The main benefit that these curved monitors provide is the enhanced immersive experience while watching visuals or playing games.

Since the screen is curved, our brain is tricked into believing that we are much more closer to the action, of which the Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL excels in.

Resolution

The Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL is a 23.6-inch curved full HD monitor offered at an aggressive price tag.

This monitor has a VA panel that’s usually less prominent among the display types available in the market.

The VA panels offer deep blacks and great contrast levels compared to the TN and IPS panels. These panels consume less power during the operation as well.

Curved display

The advantage of the curved display over the flat panels is that when viewed from an optimal distance, these panels provide a much more realistic immersive experience due to the curvature of the field of view.

Samsung has integrated the AMD FreeSync technology on this monitor.

This will let the frames execute smoothly by synchronizing the screen refresh rate with the frame rate of the content on the screen.

Not for gaming

We’d recommend hardcore gamers to stay away from this monitor. The response rate of 4ms isn’t much benefit for gaming.

This monitor mainly suits for media consumption and editing and does a very good job at that.

Eye saver mode

Samsung has integrated an eye saver mode on this product for limiting the blue light emission that will reduce strain on your eyes.

This mode also results in providing a better sleep at night after a long TV watching session.

Verdict

The Samsung LC24F390FHWXXL is a curved monitor that offers an immersive media consumption experience.

Strictly not for gamers, this desktop monitor offers a futuristic look to your computer setup.

Since the usage of a computer monitor is mostly a hands distance from the eyes, having a curved monitor makes much sense.
