The monitor was easy to set up
The colors and clarity are pleasing. The monitor was easy to set up. I used the supplied HDMI cable. Looking at a curved screen takes getting used to.
Fantastic monitor at a fantastic price
Fantastic monitor at a fantastic price. My only reasoning for giving it 4, instead of 5 is that the stand isn't adjustable and the default position tilts downwards too much. Need to buy a separate arm for it.
Perfect for small desk and office
Fit the home office perfect. The base/stand could be a little more durable, but once it's set, seems to work good. Bought TWO for my wife's office

For me a great monitor. Once you see the curved screen you will know what they mean by immersive.. Crystal clear and a good price..
Really great monitor for the price
Really great monitor for the price. Crystal clear, only thing is I wish when you turned off the monitor the blue led on the front would turn off. Kind of annoying since it is in my room but I'm definitely going to order another one.

Bought this for my desk at work. Incredible. I also need my glasses less often and the eye strain is reduced.
A very nice Monitor, the Curved screen is a real plus.
Very nice monitor. Replaced an 8 year old LG. You can really see the advances in monitor technology. The curved screen is a very interesting the improvement I am near sighted and the curve of the screen seems to match the correction of my lenses. It makes viewing the screen very comfortable.
Looks nice, great resolution!
Screen is nice for reading the newspaper. It has a very clear picture for viewing webinars, which I do regularly. I do wish that the screen could move so it could be tilted back some. It seems to be leaning forward a bit. I put a folded mouse pad under the front and that took care of it.
Excellent Monitor, bought two for my computer at home. Just waiting to buy the third to have a full arc of monitors. Just to let you know this unit has the standard Samsung joystick control on the back of it. It can be kind of annoying it to you learn how to use it, but if you have a Samsung LED TV you'll be used to it. This unit does not have internal speakers, but it does have a speaker output in the form of a 1/8 inch mini jack on the back of the unit. The unit is HDMI only, but I solved that issue by getting a display port to HDMI cable to use all ports on my video card. They are cheap, only about $10 US. It does come with its own HDMI cable so you do not have to buy one. The unit has an external power supply, so be prepared for another power brick hanging around under the desk.
Loving it so far, only problem I ran into was free sync but reason to that is because I'm not an AMD user or don't own and AMD parts. Other then that this give 60hz and runs great!
Pretty awesome to work using curved monitors. Only complaint is that it doesn't come with dvi or display port ports.
This is a beautiful screen, the colors are very vivid, not sure how I would feel about a curved screen, but I love it and would recommend it.
We ordered many of these and the stands, one of them was damaged in the packaging and only 1/2 the screen works (see pictures) the other will not hold the stand bottom, but works ok as it's on a triple monitor stand. I don't see where we can have this exchanged as I have been looking for weeks since we got it all put together finally!
Great panel, awful stand
Really sharp looking, great quality...Why doesn't it have even a slightly adjustable stand?!
Great monitor at an AMAZING price.
I love this monitor, and I ADORE its price. $170 for a curved 24 inch? What a steal. If you're not sure whether or not to buy this monitor or just grab a normal flat panel, I'd say buy this one BUT be patient. This monitor's price shifts quite often between $160-$200, I was able to buy mine for $166 + tax.
I love this monitor! It replaced a slightly larger LG IPS monitor. I use it on my roll top desk so I do not use the base. The curve plus the socket for the base make a fine three point contact, allowing it to tilt back a few degrees. Most newer monitors have the buttons on the bottom edge of the screen. This one has an on/off switch/joystick around the back of the right side of the screen which allow me to use it without devising "feet". The picture is excellent, the best true black of any monitor I have. There is no glare from the numerous windows in this room, and the angle of view is very wide laterally; not so much vertically. The EyeSaver setting and some of the other settings cause the great black screen background to go grey, so I will not be using any setting that detracts from that excellent feature. I do not have enough room for the 27 or 34 inch models, but I assume they are great also. This 22" is ~ $70 cheaper than the 27", so that was a deal for me. The monitor it replced was a 24" and I cannot tell that this one is 2" smaller. I sit too close to use anything larger anyway.
Horrible for action games
Good for normal use, but HORRIBLE when watching Ice Hockey games. Cannot delineate on ice markings, color contrast cannot be adjusted, everything is WHITE and just cannot replicate Computer screen clarity. Have to use my Benq 2450gm for games to get a better/real sense of the puck and player positioning, and game reality.
Monitor is as described - good quality, easy setup - no issues there
Monitor is as described - good quality , easy setup - no issues there. My suggestion to prospective buyers is to watch the item for several days before purchasing as the price seems to fluctuate. Bought at $199 then price lowered the next day to $169 - Amazon would not let me cancel order or give a price adjustment. Happy with product but not Amazon.
Lovely and Useful
This was worth what I paid for it and then some. The screen allows a wide field of view, which permits me to have many applications or tabs open and seeable simultaneously. It's also curved, which is aesthetically appealling as furniture. I enjoy my purchase.
Great Monitor for the Price! Get bigger size if you can.
Good monitor. I like the quality of the picture on the screen. I was doubtful of the curved screen looking better than normal flat screens but I was completely wrong. The monitor is very immersive and easy on the eyes at the same time. Going back i would have gotten a bigger size other than 22" but that is personal preference.
Well designed product with good build quality and price.
I am very pleased with my 22-inch Samsung CF390. The colors are beautiful, the screen quality is excellent, and the design features very nice. There is a clever control button out of sight behind the lower right corner which makes it easy to control the functions on the screen. Some people have mentioned in their reviews they didn't like this feature, I find it a elegant solution for screen control. This is the best monitor I have yet owned, with the best screen quality and features. The 'eye save' mode is beautiful and very well done, I leave it on all the time. I recommend this monitor for anyone who shops and finds the size and features attractive in this screen. I will buy another Samsung screen like this one again, unless I discover another one better. This is my first Samsung product, and I will consider Samsung products in the future, as this is a well designed product with good build quality and price.
What a great monitor for the price
I got so tired of the small screen I was using on my laptop and finally bought this monitor. I can't believe what a difference it made not only being larger but so much more clear. I did not think the curved screen would be much of a benefit but I am really glad that I chose this model as it does add to the viewing experience.
Works good, but the height and angle is nonadjustable
Works good, but the height and angle is nonadjustable, So I need put something under it to make it gets higher.
great price, looks cool on my desk
Have had it for a few months, great price, looks cool on my desk. I think you'd be getting more than what you paid for if you buy it.
Small blemish on inside of screen
Took a star away for the blemish, I do believe it's Samsung's fault since it's on the inside. It's not noticeable while gaming and I like this monitor too much to bother with the return. It does its job well, freesync is amazing. I just wish it was adjustible to some extent, but I suppose in this case, you're sacrificing that and speakers for freesync and curves. And it comes with a high speed HDMI cable.
love these monitors. I've used Samsung as a professional designer for 15 years. For a better view of color, place them on top of something higher than the top of your desk.
Great monitor, love the design and clarity. I do wish that the entire stand could be removed for vesa mounting. Not a big deal though because it still mounts. I bought 3 of them for my desktop and they turned out awesome. I linked the stand I bought for them to mount on and it works perfect, able to achieve a perfect curve with it. data-hook="product-link-linked" class="a-link-normal" ="/Mount-It-MI-2789-Triple-Monitor-Stand-Freestanding-LCD-Computer-Screen-Desk-Mount-for-19-20-22-23-24-Inch-Monitors-VESA-75-and-100-Compatible-Full-Motion-66-lbs-Capacity-3-Horizontal-Monitor/dp/B01HSJX1FG/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_txt?ie=UTF8">Mount-It!

great picture. i have 2 side by side in my studio and they look and work great. easy integration with HDMI in the back.
First use impressions.
- I'm a graphic designer, so I care greatly about color accuracy. So far, it's pretty decent. I'm yet to have a marathon session on this. - I read a lot about the eye saver stuff, and how well it works. That's great and all, but as far as colors are concerned, they get all muddy and dull. I'm not sure I'll be using that a lot. - It'll take a bit for me to get used a curved monitor. So far, it's pretty rad. - Monitor is super bright and very sharp. - No dead pixels on this that I can see. - The power button is also a menu joystick. Very easy to use, and very user friendly menu. - There is an audio port in the back...never tested, never will. - Monitor ONLY has 1x HDMI and 1x VGA ports in the back... VGA? Really?
This monitor is amazing!! It works well on m tiny desk
This monitor is amazing!! It works well on m tiny desk. Hardly ever notice the curve. My only minor complaint is that it isn't bright enough for me, but that's really minor. Overall, an amazing monitor. It has no sound either, but for me, i didn't care, I have speakers.

Very nice monitor, you probably wont really feel the "curved" effect with a 24 inch monitor though. I might buy another one soon for dual monitor. I'm not sure if its because i havent found the right settings but some games like sports games (nba 2k, fifa) give like this "wavy glow" effect around the players when they move. Again i doubt this is because of the monitor itself but rather finding the right settings to prevent it. Overall great monitor but for $200 id expected a dvi port rather than a rgb port
Great price for a great monitor.
If you are look for a nice monitor then you found it. The only thing that worry's me is (looking at the front) the back right of the screen gets warm. I have not seen it to hot but still scares me. Other then that I enjoy it so much.
Easy on the eyes
Crisp, clear, undistorted display. Excellent performance out of the box. Because this adds a third dimension to viewing with the curvature of the screen, height for best viewing is important. Did not appreciate that fact until I ran into the non-adjustable height feature. Tilting the screen to accommodate seated height like you would with a flat screen made viewing uncomfortable. Needed a few full sized books to get it to a good viewing height. The curved screen is easier on the eyes when working long days with spread sheets, appreciate that feature a lot. Features outweigh any inconvenience.
Base does not sit level.
Very flimsy build. Does not sit level on the base. I had to shim the base to get the screen from leaning forward. Otherwise, the colors are natural in appearance and its really a nice looking monitor. Considering the price, its a good buy.
I love these monitors!
I purchased 3 of these for my setup. They are wicked looking. I love them and only spent about $130 for each monitor. Curved screens are really beautiful to watch tv shows or movies or even play games on, but I also am a software developer and I write code on these a lot in my home office. I really enjoy these. I recommend these for anyone that enjoys this setup. I recommend getting 3 of them honestly. It makes for a really nice environment and because of the curved screens it honestly makes it very easy to look at all three screens with a small turn of your head. I used to think these were a bit of a gimmick but after using these for a few months, I really have had a change of heart with curved screens. Looking at 4K and 1080p screens with this same size you honestly won't see a difference so I don't think you will cry about them not being 4K. Honestly you don't need it even with gaming for this size screen. If these ever died on me I honestly would purchase more to replace them. I'm actually tempted to purchase the larger screen(mine are the 24inch currently) as a 4th screen to put above my 3 screens. I fully recommend these to anyone and after showing a lot of people my setup 3 of my software developer friends decided to purchase 3 for their home offices as well.

Monitor looks and works great, however the stand is not adjustable and rests at a downward angle for some odd reason. I have to put a small book under the front of the stand just for the monitor to face straight. Such a nice monitor you would think that they would have the stand hold up the monitor properly. When the monitor is off a blue light turns on which lights up my room at night, Not a big deal but my computer look like garbage tilted on a book and with a piece of black tape covering the front light. And on top of all that I found a dead pixel not even 2 full weeks in use.
A GREAT CURVED MONITOR
After having the monitor for several weeks I come to appreciate the curved design and of course the picture quality of the CF390. The monitor is lightweight so I placed it on a small piece of lauan plywood secured with zip ties and use an Acer CX12 chromebox as the computer located on the floor. We are able to place the setup on our laps as a low-cost alternative to a laptop.
