What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung C27F390 27-Inch Curved LED Monitor
  • I mean, it's a HD monitor. 1920x1080 is a fairly alright resolution.
  • Resolution is great if you want things bigger.
  • Very distracting low-resolution. 1080p for a 27-inch monitor is impossible.
  • My only issue with this monitor, is that the resolution isn't high enough for a monitor of this size.
  • However if you want the same size but more on the screen you’ll need to go for a higher resolution monitor.
Samsung C27F396 Full HD LED monitor
  • Great resolution, contrast, can be a bit bright on default setting but you can easily turn down.
  • Really good quality- 1080x1920 resolution, and really thin bezels.
  • Resolution is excellent and the product is very stylish.
  • Great screen brilliant resolution, great colour & brightness.
  • Max resolution is 1080p and you cannot use force Gsync on these monitors.

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung C27F390 27-Inch Curved LED Monitor
  • The display is great and sharp and the colour is amazing.
  • Brightness is good and they feel robust.
  • The colour is good enough but is improved with a little Photoshop setting alteration.
  • Great curved display with a good level of brightness.
  • I am a long term Mac user so spoilt with Retna Display so getting a standard HD screen was worry for me.
Samsung C27F396 Full HD LED monitor
  • Some of the colour presets are a bit odd and can give a very blue or green tint but this can be customised.
  • Great picture, good colour quality.
  • The images are crisp and the colours are bright and clean.
  • Good quality product - absolutely no flicker - very crisp image and great colours.
  • The colours are pretty poor and having worked on a variety of monitors I’d say this is at the bottom end.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung C27F390 27-Inch Curved LED Monitor
  • The monitor turns on very quickly. Highly recommend.
  • The Eye Care feature really does seem to make a difference.
  • Excellent TV for the money. Looks smart. Lots of features.
  • The screen is fixed in a mount on the stand where it leans forward ever so slightly.
  • The Samsung "Easy Settings" app won't launch.
Samsung C27F396 Full HD LED monitor
  • I find the picture (the most important feature!) to be clear and sharp.
  • Really love power saving features that turn off standby mode after its been sat ldile for 20 hours.
  • Very impressed with picture quality and features.
  • The industrial design is expectional—ultra minimal with crisp edges, and no daft features at all.
  • The viewing angle is also wide and precise positioning in front of the display isn't too critical.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Samsung C27F390 27-Inch Curved LED Monitor
  • Set up and had laptop connected via USB C breakout hub and HDMI cable.
  • The set up works connecting to other monitors in various locations.
  • Easy to set up, the only issue I had with it was the speaker settings when I was connecting it up with my laptop.
  • Connections are VGA and HDMI. I use HDMI because its better.
  • As the screen does not have speakers, when receiving a call (say on Skype), whilst being connected to the laptop, I couldn't hear the other person.
Samsung C27F396 Full HD LED monitor

  • Just connect & we have lift off. Nice size, good picture.
  • Using for CCTV and it’s perfect. Easy to connect to my HDD.
