Samsung Launches CJG5 Curved Gaming Monitor

Samsung Electronics unveiled its new CJG5 curved gaming monitor at Gamescom 2018, held from August 21 to 25. Samsung is exhibiting its advanced gaming monitor line-up equipped with super ultra-wide CHG90 experience zone under the theme, "Wider View. Winning Play." Held in Cologne, Germany, Gamescom is one of the world's largest gaming trade shows that attracted more than 350 thousand visitors from more than 50 countries, last year alone.

The newly-developed CJG5 32-inch(C32JG5) and 27-inch(C27JG5) monitors feature key gaming technologies such as WQHD high resolution, curved display, 144Hz refresh rate and a high contrast ratio. Globally available in the third quarter of 2018, the bezel-less, game-optimized CJG5 provides a completely smooth and immersive gaming experience at a reasonable and affordable price backed by Samsung's technology expertise.
"Due to the rapidly increasing demands of gaming monitors, we sought to offer competitively-priced gaming monitors for more users to benefit from premium technology," said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "With the technological expertise that we have accumulated throughout the years, we are making efforts to accelerate the gaming features such as 144Hz and high WQHD resolution, which will be appreciated by the mass market."

The CJG5 features WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440), which is four times higher than HD, delivering precise and life-like images with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and vibrant colors, as well as a high contrast ratio of 3000:1. Paired with a curved VA panel and three-sided bezel-less design, the CJG5 completes an immersive environment that provides the most engaging gaming experience and minimizes eye fatigue. Furthermore, the 1800R curvature that minimizes eye fatigue by reducing the change in the user's focal distance. By imitating a real-life view, the CJG5 helps users who swiftly move their focus while playing games, even over prolonged periods.

The 144Hz frame rate enables extremely responsive graphics and a lag-free environment that enriches the gaming experience. The game and cinema modes automatically optimize the black gamma level, contrast, sharpness and saturation for any genre of games and movies. Users can also instantly check and control key settings during the game with ease, using the game-dedicated On Screen Display (OSD) dashboard menu with game style UI.

I am afraid this thing has also PWM dimming... so I wouldn't touch it even with a pole.
There are advantages and disadvantages on every screen, PWM dimming doesnt bother me, I think you can turn off that feature anyhow, but I wouldnt buy it for other reasons, I dont like curved screens.

QLED image quality is amazing but I dont like curved screens. There isnt any flat QLED monitors on the market so Im going to wait.

I guess you should learn the working principle of it. It is not a feature you can turn off or on.

Be aware that these arent the best VA's. Not bad either but 3000:1 is meh, it doesnt offer that much over an IPS and Samsungs QLED (which is just VA with tweaks) has been having some issues too.

But as others point out as well, all display tech has its meh aspects
