Samsung CF791 Overview
Taking a look at the CF791 we can see that it mostly has a silver design. The base and the borders (if you want to call them that) around the screen are silver. You could almost call this a borderless display, because the borders around the display are tiny! So if you wanted to do a dual or triple setup with these displays they will flow together pretty well. There is a small Samsung logo on the bottom border and a power activity LED on the front and that is it. I really like this minimalist design, and you are definitely going to like how this monitor looks on your desk.
The monitor itself has a 1500R curve. The way curve on displays are measured is that if the curve were to make a complete circle, the radius of the circle (in millimeters) is “R” curve. So for this display the radius is 1500 mm. This is a pretty dramatic curve, which should make for a very immersive experience.
The CF791 as I mentioned is a 34-inch WQHD (3440×1440) display. That resolution is 2.5 times the pixel density of Full HD (1080p) and creates a wider workspace, which eliminates the need for a dual-display setup in most cases. This display makes use of Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology. While we hear words like this spit out by marketing reps to try to sell us things, Quantum Dot actually makes a difference. This display has Quantum Dots, or semiconductor nanocrystals inside. This new display technology has three main advantages, higher peak brightness, better color accuracy, and higher color saturation. So this display supports up to 125% of the sRGB color space.
Below the display you’ll find the base, which I feel is large, but not overly large. It actually provides a perfect place to put my smartphone when I’m not using it. The base is pretty heavy, which is made to help support the large display. Attached to the base is the arm which holds up the display. The design of the whole system allows you to tilt the display either toward you or away from you to adjust the height and it sort of just sits in place once you have it at the height you want. It is one of the better designs that I’ve seen for a display of this size, especially a curved display. If you want to mount this display Samsung does include a VESA mount kit in the box.
Samsung has gone with an all-white glossy design on the back of the display. This contrasts nicely with the silver color on the front of the display. On the far left you will find all of your connections. These include two USB ports and a 3.5mm audio connection, all of which are not covered. This makes them easy to access so you can plug in a USB drive or a headset to them. Below those you’ll find the covered section that when you pop off the cover reveals a DisplayPort connection, two HDMI, USB 3.0, and the power connection. On the opposite side of the monitor you’ll find the control stick, which is used to navigate the on screen menu and make changes. Samsung has used the control stick on their TVs and other displays and it is much better than using the ordinary buttons.
