I really hate the fact it doesn't ship outside the US... And ultrawides are really fucking expensive here for some reason. Guess I'll just have to pay :(

If we were able to offer shipping on this drop it would cost $150/$200 to ship it outside the US depending on where you are. Also you would need to pay any local taxes and import fees on top of that.
How about that "Premium High Speed" HDMI cable though? If it's made of diamonds, you might be able to flip it for a profit ;)

I loved the monitor, but you will have to live without gsync. Actually had to return mine due to defects. I had to exchange it twice due to stuck pixels (from Amazon) and then the last time there were rows of pixels that were dimmer than the rest (also from Amazon). I have upgraded to the AW3418DW, but have gone through hell trying to get an arm that supports the weight because Amazon sent me the wrong one 3 times... For the price though, this Samsung monitor is probably the best in its price range, considering it normally hovers around ~$750, in my opinion.
This isn’t even a good price... I wouldn’t even recommend this model over their qled one
$800 is a great price ;)
Interesting, I just bought this monitor from Amazon Friday, was delivered Sunday (yesterday) for $738 and love it.
Why does it have to be white? WWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?????!!!!!!

The bezel and base are actually a silver color, the back, the arm going up to the back and the wires are white. But yea, not the bezel and base, the things you actually see 90% of the time.
This was actually frustrating to me because I bought it in part because I thought it was white.

It's ok to be white
Does it ship to Canada?
$699 is a good price don't get me wrong, but I feel like the the suggested normal price of $999 is misleading. Amazon has this monitor for $749 right now, only $50 more, and the most expensive place I have found it is directly from Samsung for $949. $699 is still the best price around but I felt mislead after reading that.

$999 was the launch MSRP, since being reduced to $949 (and as you've noted, other retailers are heavily discounting it).
I bought one on release, but sent it back. It had two major flaws for me.
1. Out of box gamma was horribly low, making everything appear washed out, destroying any contrast benefits that the VA panel offers. Gamma was measured as 1.8 with an i1 Display Pro. Yes, you can correct via calibration (creates an ICC profile), but there are plenty of applications that bypass the profile. You'd want the gamma to be at least ballpark close out of the box (2.2 is ideal, 2.0-2.4 is acceptable).
2. FreeSync range out of the box is 80-100hz. You can set it in the menu to an expanded range (44-100hz IIRC), but this range causes flickering, hence why it's not the default/only option.
So long as you can play the gamma lottery (return/exchange until you get a good one), and you don't plan to actually use FreeSync, then this is an acceptable monitor. But it was a hard pass for me.
just buy the massdrop vast instead it has an identical panel, freesync as well and a far better stand as well as being $100 less
I've bought exactly this monitor in november (when I sold part of bitcoin I had), and I'm very satisfied since then. I had LG IPS 23" full HD before it and this Samsung is completely new era. Much better colors, much better black (although I've expected more black, because I'm spoiled by Samsung AMOLED screen on my phone). Much more screen space on this one. I no longer use maximize on windows. Now I usually have two or more windows side by side. And in games this is total difference.
HOWEVER! There are games that have real problems with such width. Like Assassins Creed IV Black Flag - big dissapointment, the game does not support such large resolution. On the other hand Lara Croft is now brutal experience on this screen. (Tomb Raider)
Big disappointment was my Radeon HD 7970 graphic card, which does not support FreeSync in computer games (only in video). So I cannot tell how FreeSync works on this monitor. Yet. I'm waiting to buy new graphics card when they become available for reasonable prices.
100 Hz is however very notable difference compared to 60 Hz I had before. When game runs smoothly on 60 FPS or higher, I don't feel much difference. But when game suddenly drops to 35, or 25 FPS then it is big difference between 60 Hz monitor and 100 Hz monitor. On 100 Hz the picture tearing is spoiling the experience much less than on 60 Hz.
The biggest difference is while watching movies. Now I see details that I didn't see before and whole screen makes much more cinematic experience.
Monitor has headphone jack near its left side (from the back) and it is close enough to plug in standard headphones that comes with mobile phone to listen through them. As default connection is displayport which supports sound with picture, one cable is enough for both video and audio. Speakers in the monitor are much better than speakers in my laptop, or speaker in my phone, however, any decent computer speakers are much better than these.
Some monitor settings does not make much sense for me, like "Eye saver mode", "Game mode", "Response time" - I don't see them making picture better. However one setting very pleasantly supprised me: "Sharpness" - it is antialiasing built right into monitor and you can set how aggressive it should go. Or push it other way and make edges more visible and more edgy. It works very well and I can set antialiasing to lower level while using it and still have nice round edges of objects in games. Very useful.
I had to reorganize my desk to accomodate such large screen. And also its stand is larger than I anticipated.
I thought my wife will hate this monitor as she doesn't like large screens, but she got used to it very quickly and I never heard from her any complaint about size of this monitor.
I totaly recommend it to anyone considering to buy it. (I've bought mine during black friday or cyber monday sales for 625 €)

Upgrade your GPU and your experience will get better still. That HD 7970 really doesn't have the power to push a 34 in 1440p.
NOWitsOK
Size doesn't matter with GPUs being able to run games. Just the resolution.
I am most definitely looking forward to this drop! ^_^
No VESA mount? What year is this? Edit: There totally is a VESA mount... NVM me nothing to see here.

Very cool! I bet you will love it. Samsung is killing it with these monitors with qled imo.
smallbit
They sure are, i've been following ~34" UW screens for nearly 2 years waiting on a decent price/value. I took home a LG-29UM67 to try it out and I was pretty disappointed with the height. It was smaller than my standard 27" monitor. At the same time, I knew with some extra height and a curve it would be absolutely incredible! Can't wait!
A really solid review from someone who has compared a lot of monitors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXZ_N-c-Xi4
Amazon is currently selling this for only $50 more. I'll have mine next week
N8duhgr8
Tax is over $54 on amazon. That brings it up to $804.36. I think I'm fine with waiting a week.
FenixKage
Depends on your state
I personally own 2 of these...Love them to death...with a 65 oled on top...INSANE!

This one has 2x the resolution of the one in the link.
Why no shipping to canada? I missed the drop on the massdrop 35" and I'd like to buy into this one but Im in Canada. The massdrop one was available to Canada so why not this one???
This is the same exact price as what Samsung was selling for during Black Friday. Only thing that's advantageous is the free shipping for US people...
Is there any point me using massdrop if I'm in the UK, and does anyone know the shipping charges etc.
ted_miester
US electronics are generally 110v, so you'll probably need a stepdown transformer as well.
This drop seems to be exclusively to US addresses only though, using a freight forwarder will probably cost at least USD$100 - $150.
Fuzz
Monitors are usually 110-240v, as some other products(like the PS4), but it's always wise to check beforehand anyway. This monitor is 110-240v in the description, but indeed there's no shipping from Massdrop overseas it seems.
Got one for Christmas and I really like it; the only problems I have are that it doesn't swivel and it wobbles when I'm typing.
I wanted a nicer ultrawide and thought I was getting some bleeding edge display. Now I see there are comments on first experiences dating back 19 weeks. Oh well, I guess the timing was a little too good to be true.
Meanwhile, I need to find an 8-pin PCIe power connector for the new video card I bought. As usual, it's never simple.
I think it's ridiculous that they don't ship to Europe.
inaureoled
I think it's ridicilous that they don't use drop shipping from an EU warehouse so that every single item doesnt get a 40% markup with taxes and custom fees.
Simply cannot justify the extra $500 compared to the LG 1080p. Alas... :(

It is, agreed, but the extra cost isn’t worth the premium in my mind.
i just bought a $~475 monitor about two month ago with. it came tilt, height and twist support. I value those at around $100, the Monitor cost an extra $75 from the tilt only model.
i value a curve at about $100. Ultra wide 1440p about $150 over 1440p widescreen. And the lower refresh rate about -$50.
that puts he monitor non-sale price for me, personally about $600, or $700 with Tilt/twist/height. So $700 on sale is a bad value.
for $200, a 1080 ultra wide with 75Hz refresh rate adds about $100-125 of value compared to a base 1080IPS display, which is around $100. So it is a fair value.
I had a curved displays in.... 2014. Cutting edge, $500. Now, from the $225 I value the 1080p 75Hz ultrawide at, we’ere looking at no more than $600 for this. Or likewise, from this I value the LG around $325. i’m Not saying it shouldn’t cost more. I am saying it costs to much more.
it’s not worth $200 (300 if I had got one without swivel/height adjustment) from my 144Hz 1440p freesnyc monitor. while a 1080p ultrawide at 75Hz freesync is worth about half for cost w/out height/swivel.
I just purchased on from amazon gfor 750. it is a great monitor, just recently habving issues with refresh rate though, it is native 100hz but for some reason the 100hz option disappeared unless i create a custom profile in the nvidia control panel.

If you turned on freesync in the monitor menu on an Nvidia gpu you will likely lose these settings on the computer iteself.
loafer987
I am pretty sure it is not on plus I get no benefit with my new 1080ti that i just got
Anyone notice the monitor itself doesn't necessarily stay level? Seems to do with the sliding mechanism in the back.
markmesiya
Yes, I had to put a little piece of corrugated cardboard under one side of the stand to even it out.
I still do not have my tracking number or any indication this has shipped. Does anyone?
Vendra
Just got my info updated on massdrop with shipping info even though it says it shipped two days ago
did anyone receive their monitors or tracking information yet?
eliteone
I received tracking information from an electronics dealer and camera store in NJ yesterday that I can only assume is for the monitor, if that helps.
jeffn
To update, received the monitor yesterday.
If you don't mind "Factory Reconditioned", Woot has it for $549 for today only, https://computers.woot.com/offers/samsung-34-curved-led-monitor-cf791-5?ref=cp_cnt_wp_0_2 .
I have this monitor and I love it. Quick tip for fellow programmers, The default sharpness is kinda high and the text looked blurry at first. So I lowered the sharpness and it was fine.
I'm using 2 of these monitors with a GTX 1080 TI. Because of viewing angles , These panels are probably not the best for a dual monitor setup. But, I only use one monitor for games/video/etc and the other one for messaging,browsing,music,programming so that doesn't bother me (and I really care about symmetry in my setup) Just adding this that this monitor is best for single monitor setups.

How does it peform while gaming? I have a 1080 ti as well
nonsense73
I would an answer to this as well. I've got a 1080, and am curious how it performs for gaming without G-Sync since this has only Free Sync.
I have this monitor and I love it. I have not noticed any ghosting in gaming and the 100Hz is great, it is no 120 but a far cry from 60. The only thing I have noticed is in the tray icons in windows 10. When I boot the computer everything is perfect including tray icons in the popup. After awhile, the longer the more noticeable and we are talking days, I notice that when I click the arrow to popup the tray icon window that some of the mini icons are blurry. I am thinking this is most likely not a problem with the monitor as they are not on the screen all the time and the area in front of where they popup with my background image is perfect. Also it is always the same icons no matter where they are in the menu, again why i believe it is windows not the monitor. I could be wrong though as I never had this issue with my old 29" ultra-wide. There was a big windows 10 update about the time I received the monitor in September. I read somewhere where it was mentioned that the monitor only moves up and down, it does tilt as well.
