    Was interested in the 27" until 1080p...

    Where does it say that? Was just about to comment on the missing resolution info.

    EDIT: Dug into the specs on Samsungs site and found it. Bummer!

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    Yes, both 24-inch and 27-inch versions are 1080p. I mentioned that they were 'Full HD' and linked the 24-incher specs in the article. The 27-inch version specs can be found here (click specs tab).

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    Yeah, 1440p is the "sweet spot" for a 27" panel imo.

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    Ass this to the quantum dot tech...
    On a more serious note, I'm joining the ranks of the disappointed with them being only 1080p res. Forget the curve, give us the res!

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    My parents had a curved screen back in the 80's, so they are nothing technically new and back then the press kept saying flat screens were the future !

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    I'd love to see a 15:9 ultra-widescreen version of this. I'd buy that up in a instance (1080 @ 30" would be fine too, as an entry level).

    There isn't a sweet spot as it depends on your viewing distance. Think of these as a pair of 1920x1080 screens, one fit for narrow desks and one more suited to deeper desks.

    Maybe with the HDR Push in TVs we'll see enough content being colour space tagged in order to make wide gamut displays usable but I wouldn't hold your breath. It's entirely possible we'll see a repeat of the situation ten years ago where they stopped pushing wide gamut displays after a couple of years because there was so little support that just about everything had the wrong colours.

    The "full HD" bit eluded me.

    I hope quantum dot fixes the problems of va tech, to actually get this to work for gaming.

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    Any guesses at when there will be a UHD version available? 12 months maybe?

    Re: Samsung launches curved CFG70 quantum dot gaming monitors

    Why are widescreen monitors restricted to 1920 X 1080 ?
    My old Samsung monitor had a max. resolution of 2048 x 1536.

    Does this mean gaming on my old non-widescreen monitor was better ?

    These are gaming monitors. You don't need 1440p.
