Samsung LC34J791WTEXXY Thunderbolt 3 34" QLED Curved Monitor $959 C&C (Melbourne Free Delivery) @ Bing Lee

710

This is the lowest price that I have seen for the Samsung 34" Thunderbolt™ 3 Curved Monitor with 21:9 Wide Screen. They were rare as hen's teeth in the first half of this year due to WFH's demand, sold quickly even at full RRP price back then. This long weekends Bing Lee is selling it for 20% off RRP.

The CJ79 features two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports to connect compatible Macs and PCs. Thunderbolt™ 3 transmits video and data at speeds of up to 40Gbps — 8 times faster than USB 3.0 — and simultaneously charges devices (up to 85W), all over a single cable.

The fast 100 Hz screen refresh rate provides smoother, silkier mouse sensitivity for enhanced productivity in any application. It also reduces screen stutter in fast-moving action scenes for a flawless gaming experience.

Two Thunderbolt 3 ports as well as, DP, HDMI and USB inputs, the CJ79 provide multiple connection options for PCs, consoles, and external devices. And the built-in 7-watt stereo speakers offer an enhanced entertainment experiences when viewing videos and playing games.

Display Resolution: 3440x1440
Color Gamut (NTSC 1976): 88%
Color Gamut (DCI Coverage): 92%
sRGB Coverage: 125%(Typ.), 120%(Min)
Adobe RGB Coverage: 92%

[EDIT] Looks like Melbourne delivery is free, or $20 to other capital cities. Also use code BING10 for $10 off, credit to hiya. OR Add a second item, like a $2 USB adapter and use code BING20 to get $20 off, credit msman.

        If they are not paying me to take their monitor. No deal.

    •  

      You can always buy the xiaomi one.. Both are VA panels minus the thunderbolt ports..

      I have one and I cannot fault it.. Paid 600 for it.

    Great monitor, awesome price.

    I'v been using this Monitor for a year and had zero issue with it, one of the best monitors I'v purchased in my life.
    Although its not written in the specfications, from user experience Gsync runs perfectly on it.
    It supports FreeSync and also became GSync compatible with Nvidia driver support.

    Can this monitor be mounted?

    I purchased this 32" Samsung curved monitor at the peak of COVID-19 which is great, however I didn't even think to check if it came with a VESA mount when I purchased it as I assumed it would be a standard feature these days - https://www.binglee.com.au/samsung-lu32r590cwexxy-32-uhd-cur...

    I'm now looking to get rid of it for this reason as the stand takes up too much room and it doesn't allow me to push it back far enough against the wall.

    The stand on this 34" does appear to be far more compact though.

    •  

      Yeah it comes with a VESA mounting bracket adapter thing. Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM5cvHklQK0

      •  

        Thanks for that. If only they offered the same solution on the one I purchased.

        •  

          Yeah maybe there's a cheap adapter you can get off Amazon? People have complained about this stand being wobbly but I haven't had any issues.

    •  

      I bought it at full RRP price at the peak of CV too, the only store in Aust with a couple in stock was HN. It did come with the VESA adapter.

    I got this monitor about 3 weeks ago via Samsung corp store for roughly $970 with the $50 coupon. Well worth the price for gaming and WFH! Came from an Dell IPS panel and not missing it.

    •  

      What series Dell monitor did you move over from?
      I’m trying to weigh up this vs a refurb U3419W for about the same price… Gaming features don't matter, mainly for general usage and light design work in Illustrator and (hopefully) to learn SolidWorks on.

      • +2 votes

        It was a very old Dell U2713H. I got it around 6 years ago I think. At the time I prioritised photo editing over gaming but that's changed. The colours are richer on the Dell but the Samsung still looks great and there is a huge difference between 100hz and 60hz.

        I don't use Solidworks but I do recall my colleagues (I work in an engineering firm) discussing to be mindful of losing vertical real estate moving to an ultrawide and the curved screen may make things look odd but they could have been talking out of their ass.

        •  

          Thanks for the reply!
          One of the reasons I think the Dell is probably a better option is the reduced curve over this one, and I’m not losing too much height from my current display with either.

        •  

          You don't lose vertical real estate with ultrawides, if coming from a 27 inch, you GAIN horizontal real estate. Vertical pixels remain the same (or grow if coming from 1080p)

            @SupR: Agreed, I should have been clearer. That statement is when you are staying in 16:9 put going beyond 1440p

    The specs look very average compared to many of the Dell monitors in terms of price.

    I just got the Dell S3221QS for just over $500 and the specs are better than this. By colour range and 4k

    •  

      That’s not an ultra wide and thunderbolt 3 though. Not sure what you meant by color range but the Samsung colour gamut is better and each is factory calibrated to optimise the colour quality (usually done in higher end monitors). They were my main factors for choosing it when I researched ultrawide’s.

  •  

    I bought the LC34F791WQNXZA early last year for $758.40 with a ebay coupon. Is this the same monitor?

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/440290

    Edit: Nevermind. They're slightly different. The CF791 is lacking the Thunderbolt 3 ports but other than that, they're pretty much identical.

    Does anyone have any hands on experience with this vs the Xiaomi? They look quite similar aside from ports

      I know the Xiaomi monitors uses a Samsung panel, it's probably the same one this uses.

  •  

    Seems abit high for a VA panel no? Does usb/thunderbolt add that much?

    • +2 votes

      To the cost, yes. Really for those looking to just plug one cable into your laptop and have it charge and display immediately. Use the screen USB for a mouse and keyboard and it’s a very quick plug and play dock in that setup which is appealing for those that cart laptops to and from work each day.

      Look at the price difference of a thunderbolt 3 dock vs a standard dock might give you an idea of the price difference. The cheapest thunderbolt 3 dock on Amazon is $200 (without power supply). A USB C dock is $30.

  •  

    Other than having Thunderbolt ports, I don't see why this monitor is better than the Samsung LC34H89. I've seen the Samsung LC34H89 going as long as $750 during the last Ebay sale.

    I would like to connect one Mac and one PC to this monitor using Thunderbolt 3 and USB3 - some questions please…

    1. Can both Thunderbolt3/USB3 ports be used to connect two host devices simultaneously? Or can only the primary port be used for host device with the second port for additional power delivery to the monitor hub or daisy chaining additional monitors?
    2. Is PBP/PIP supported for Macs?
    3. Does Samsung have software for Mac to support toggling between two different inputs entirely using software/hotkeys to avoid needing to use the physical source input button?

    Does anyone else have any alternative montior recommendations that solve the above points? The main trouble I am finding is the monitor hardware manufacturers only seem to provide software for Windows not Mac even though the display itself obviously works on a Mac in a basic sense…

    • +2 votes

      I’ve got this monitor.
      1. I believe it’s only meant for daisy chaining, though haven’t tried it myself. Though I have had a colleague mention getting a USB switch to do what you want, and leave both sources plugged in.
      2. Just tried both PIP and PBP with 2 macs. No issues. I don’t think this should be an issue with different systems, as it’s a hardware feature.
      3. Nope don’t think so, I’ve gotta coax it sometimes with the button to get the right input source.
      FYI Samsung advertise some fancy window management software for the monitor, but afaik it doesn’t work with Mac.

      •  

        Thanks for the info! Re the USB hub I was also considering this and should solve the multiple TB3/USB3 inputs however I then assume you won't be able to use the PBP/PIP picture as the second source would essentially become disconnected from the monitor itself… good to know PIP/PBP is a hardware based feature though.

        I assume the software you are talking about is Samsung Easy Setting Box? Unfortunately Dell is in the same boat with their Dell Display Manager (DDM) software which is only available for Windows… I found that the Dell software appears to be based on a while labelled version of an old freeware software for Windows called mControl released by EnTech Taiwan which has since been discontinued so I presume Dell went in to an exclusive licensing arrangement and/or bought the software IP.

        Some digging found there are a few open source Display Data Channel / Command Interface (DDC/CI) monitor control alternatives for Mac such as ddcctl, MonitorControl, BrightnessMenulet, DisableMonitor but all require tweaking and/or have their limitations… ideally just looking for something that works out of the box without any fuss!

          LG has some monitors support Dual Controller for software controlling 2 devices connected to 1 screen. Here is some models that support this feature

          LG 49WL95C-W
          LG 32UL950-W
          LG 34WK95U-W
          LG 27UL850-W
          LG 38WK95C

          •  

            @O O: Thanks for that, looks like the most promising software option thus far with support for Mac, although this thread on Reddit suggests that the Dual Controller software will only works in PBP mode not fullscreen (the thread is 4 years old so I wonder if LG have updated the software to support fullscreen input switching since - if not this would really only be viable for 49WL95C-W ultrawide in your list to show fullscreen 16:9 inputs side by side, and I'm not sure I'm a fan of having a TV on my desk).

            Another caveat is that those LG monitors only have a single TB3/USBC port so the second source must be connected by DP or HDMI (and again based on the thread above it appears that the Dual Controller software seems to require one of the sources use HDMI, rather than say TB3+DP).

            Oh I wish it was easier than this, just a simple TB3/USBC KVM monitor with software support for both Windows and Mac..!

            •  

              @pavlos: I believe most, if not all, dual TB3/USB-C ports monitors don't support 2 TB3/USB-C in PBP/PIP. They support 1 TB3/USB-C + 1 DP/HDMI. You can use a TB3/USB-C to DP cable/adaptor on 1 of the connection anyway.

              •  

                @O O: Yeah I was hoping to avoid that so I can double use of the monitor as a true KVM and further simplify devices on my desk, as if I need to use a TB3/USBC adaptor and convert to HDMI/DP for the monitor then I lose the ability to share any USB peripherals connected to the monitor on the second computer also, unless I used a TB3/USBC hub and then also ran a second USB host cable with the DP/HDMI cable to the monitor, but this combination seems to be even rarer to find in terms of availability on monitors; TB3/USB3 PC1, HDMI/DP+USB host port PC2, both sharing the same USB peripherals connected to the monitor. Might have to go back down the path of a dedicated TB3/USBC KVM switch it looks like, at least that opens up the number of monitor options I have available to choose from…

    •  

      Note that only one Thunderbolt 3 port provides 85W, the other port 15W, therefore only one is useful for charging a full power laptop. The latter is probably good for data or low power charging, or daisy chaining.

  •  

    I guess it works great with Galaxy S/Note & DeX (& charging the phone).
