What customers say about "Features"
Samsung C34F791 Curved LED Gaming Monitor
  • The menu - activated by a button behind the screen in the bottom right corner - is easy to navigate.
  • VA panel and understand those features this monitor is an excellent representation of what you can currently buy.
  • The OSD is a pretty standard, there's not much in there besides your basic monitor RGB calibration and a few extra features like PIP and PBP.
  • It also adjusts the tilt- meaning colour shift is a big issue as not all desks are the same height.
  • The monitor has VERY thin bezzles which run the perimeter of the display. On the edge there is this nice light glow effect.
LG 34UC88 Curved Ultrawide Height Adjustable IPS Monitor
  • The single configuration button: To me it is minimalistic and well thought. It is evident somebody spent time thinking about it.
  • The stand has springs calibrated to the monitor weight. Tilting, rotating and moving up and down is a breeze.
  • I love the ability to raise/lower the monitor as well as tilting it.
  • The stand is great and VERY sturdy.
  • There's software to change most of the settings but I can't change input sources anymore or turn the monitor off.
